7.00am Taxi arrives to take me to the office for my extraordinary day: ITV is in today and Trevor (Beattie) is helping out on one of its factual entertainment reality shows - Wags Boutique.

7.45am Arrive. Camera equipment and lighting rigs are installed.

8.00am The first Wag arrives. Wags Boutique crew will be receiving a challenge from Trevor - create an ad for their boutique. The winner gets £20,000 worth of poster activity from Clear Channel. More Wags arrive. I'm surrounded by face powder, perfume and hairspray.

9.00am Speak to Danielle at Glory about Cannes Awards entries.

12.00pm Majority of the Wags leave. The office is a little shell-shocked.

12.20pm Have a chat with Amy about how rude some people can be on the phone, and the Comic Relief Picnic - I'm baking pineapple upside-down cake.

12.29pm More Bil, he's trying to track down Gareth Hatrick. If you're reading this Gareth, can you call Bil? He's mis-written your number.

12.31pm Wags crew film cutaway shots. I'm gonna be in the show - another feather to my bit-part TV CV.
