I travelled to London last week to support my friend and teen singer Tallia Storm as she launched her first book.

Pop Girl tells of her own experiences in the music industry, including supporting Elton John at his concert and jamming on stage with Nile Rodgers.

It’s a great book for any young person who dreams big!

I bumped in to my pal Craig McGinlay who has just finished up acting in Guy Ritchie’s up coming movie King Arthur.

Craig, who hails from Paisley, had a blast filming with David Beckham on the set in Wales and I know he is going to be a big star. We decided to do the red carpet together to represent Paisley and Port Glasgow!!

Icon Awards I am so excited about attending the Icon Awards tomorrow. The glitzy ceremony will reward excellence in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex community.

A night like this is so important for celebrating diversity and inclusion and I am honoured to be presenting an award.

I’m also proud to say one of our own is up for Volunteer of The Year. So good luck to David Sinclair, who is from Larkfield, David was the only volunteer on the management team of Pride Glasgow, which was an awesome event. He works closely with local groups like Clyde Pride, which supports Inverclyde’s LGBT youth. Good luck David.

Inverclyde refugees I was happy to read council officials are proposing that Inverclyde offers to accept 10 Syrian refugee families over the next five years.

Yes, there are always going to be challenges with integration and resources but welcoming people from the conflict and offering them safety, support and a chance to keep their family unit together is something we should be proud of and support 100 per cent.

Boat Show Scotland’s Boat Show comes to Inverkip Marina this weekend.

You can see prestigious yachts and luxury power boats and cars from Rolls Royce, Aston Martin and Porche.

The style marquee offers local craft and artisan traders, helicopter flights over the Clyde, pipe bands and a children’s fun area.

I’ll be looking forward to visiting the Scottish food and drink pavilion. Admission is free from 9 October.
