As many of you might know, WAGs Boutique started last week, the new TV show where two sets of rival WAGs battle it out to run the best boutique.
I was asked last year to be one of the teams' mentors, but sadly had to turn it down as the filming period was too long. It entailed me going to London every weekend for 13 weeks, which would have been just impossible.
Instead I've compromised and will be setting both sets of girls a task to perform. I filmed the profile in the shop last week and will be filming the task on February 15, so look out for me in the coming weeks.
