As I chatted away to various people at the London Lifestyle Awards launch party, I asked this tall smart man what he does. “He’s a gold medalist” said a girl who stood next to us. So this is Thomas James, two times Olympic champion and victorious Cambridge Blue! Doesn’t he look smart in this suit?

I wasn’t embarrassed. I don’t know anyone to be honest. And I am well familiar with the puzzled expressions people throw at me when they realise I hadn’t watched their TV show, the film they were in or the dating show they appeared in! I didn’t really follow the Olympics this year due to some personal problems, which I will tell you about sometime later.

Well, Tom didn’t know who I was either. So there’s that. But I don’t think neither of us was bothered to be honest. We had a good chat and I invited Tom to my London Fashion Week opening party next month. Let’s hope he comes.

I am the only emerging talent to be nominated for  London Personality of the Year 2012. Please vote for me and spread the word!
