NB. Here is a link to the page where Pete Lord of Aardman Studios shows us just what is involved in an average day at the movie studios whilst shooting scenes for the animated feature "Pirates." I blogged his tweets for over 12 hours with his kind permission and he has drawn us a picture exclusively for the blog. Click here.

JamesaFleet: @Tom_In_Oz_ Thank you but no Tom. I shun celebrity.

Tom_In_Oz_: @JamesaFleet "Not me! I love being a celebrity, being recognized everywhere I go & being in the public arena," said the high profile Mr. Oz!

Dorina335: @Tom_In_Oz_ and so modest with it! @JamesaFleet

kinkyclawz: @Tom_In_Oz_ How are you Mr Oz? ;) Is Mrs Oz ok? And how is your son doing now?

Tom_In_Oz_: @kinkyclawz we are OK but Mrs Oz is in a tis because she wants to help daughter with wedding arrangements but daughter is striking out alone. Son is fine.

kinkyclawz: @Tom_In_Oz_ Well, at least she's involved in some way so that's not a bad start. It's hard to figure out how to step in between strong wills.

Tom_In_Oz_: @kinkyclawz My answer is look busy on Twitter...even if I'm not...and keep your eyes down at all times lol

kinkyclawz: @Tom_In_Oz_ LOL Sounds like a good plan.

Ishbel_Haf: @Tom_In_Oz_ Are you watching Steve Martin's 'Father of the Bride' dvd? xx

Tom_In_Oz_: @Ishbel_Haf we have original Spence Tracy DVDs too as well as all the Steve Martin ones...

Ishbel_Haf: @Tom_In_Oz_ I love them. Coveted Steve Martin's house.

Tom_In_Oz_: @Ishbel_Haf Have been to the exterior of house on a tour when in USA with adopted USA son..It's in area near Sleepy Hollow NY.

KnaveoG: How depressing would it be if a celebrity died before noon and everyone thinking it a fake just filled twitter with insults about them?

Tom_In_Oz_: Just remember, if you make an April Fool's joke on April 2nd, they will never see it coming!

Dorina335: just seen new #doctorwho trailer on tv....looks so much more exciting on a bigger screen....colour me excited!

Tom_In_Oz_: @Dorina335 I’ve got jumbo crayons, I'll be over later!

"Portrait of a Princess"

This song and video pay homage to the traditional fairytale, but with a contemporary and decidedly adult twist. Billed as "a fantasmagorical work of fictional fabulosity," the film "is a frivolous, fairytale frolic intended solely for harmless, humorous purposes to lighten up an occasionally dull existence.

Featuring West End star Julie Atherton, with Olivier Award winner for Best Actress in a Musical Sheridan Smith, BBC's Being Human star Russell Tovey, fellow ex History Boy Steven Webb, current Jersey Boy and S Club 7 favourite Jon Lee, and Avenue Q and Notes from New York star Paul Spicer.






8 slices of slightly stale white bread
1 tbsp. butter, softened
5 eggs
4 egg yolks
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
4 cup milk
1 cup heavy cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tbsp. desiccated coconut

Jam (your choice)

Preheat oven to moderate 375 degrees. Lightly butter a square or rectangular cooking pan that would hold 4 slices of bread sitting on top as a crust and 4 slices of bread on bottom as a base.

Very lightly butter all bread on one side of each.

Arrange 4 bread slices, buttered side down completely covering bottom of dish.

Beat together eggs, egg yolk, sugar and salt in large bowl. Beat in milk, cream and vanilla. Pour mixture through a strainer over the bread slices. Set the baking dish in larger pan of hot water. Fill larger cooking pan with about 1 inch of boiling water.

With remaining 4 slices of bread cover with a goodly helping of blackberry or raspberry jam and set them on top with jam side facing down into mixture. On top outside layer of bread spread some more butter and sprinkle a very light layer of desiccated coconut so that it will go golden brown when cooked. Don’t overdo the coconut less is more!

Bake in preheated moderate oven 375 degrees for 1 hour or until centre is almost set but still soft. Do not over bake bread pudding; the custard will set as it cools.

Remove pudding from water bath to wire rack. Serve warm or chilled with whipped cream or ice-cream, if you wish.

This recipe is my own mother's so I know it works if you do it right!. I was asked by a couple of Twitter friends to post the recipe as a DM but hey it's easier to blog it!

PS. If you hate coconut you can leave it off...not a prob! xxx


achetcuti: @Tom_In_Oz_ just started watching Being Human, love it! Glad “ondemand” has all of the seasons.

Tom_In_Oz_: @achetcuti my fave show of all time...expect it will go a few more seasons yet...then a spin off - "Fun with George & Nina" - variety hour!

achetcuti: @Tom_In_Oz_ ha ha ha! That would be the best spin off ever!

Tom_In_Oz_: @achetcuti I have high hopes that 1 day someone will recognize @russelltovey's ability 2 deliver comedy lines & give him a USA style sitcom

achetcuti: @Tom_In_Oz_ @russelltovey I think you would be great in the us! I am telling everyone to watch being human. The syfy version in us is crap.

Tom_In_Oz_: @achetcuti @russelltovey Yes we know it doesn't match the Tovey goodness of the UK version...Sam is a poor excuse of a BITE!

achetcuti: @Tom_In_Oz_ @russelltovey couldn't watch long enough to find out. Awful! Russ U were funny on the toilet talking to Annie. Couldn't stop laughing


LuCorfield: @russelltovey Will you sneak up behind @THEKERRYHOWARD tomorrow & shout "SNIFF IT" loudly? Trust me, her reaction will be worth it. x

russelltovey: @LuCorfield yep... Will report back the effect x

Tom_In_Oz_: @russelltovey @LuCorfield this is gonna look bad on the Tovey blog unless we get some feedback *just saying* lol

Above and Below: "Dialling Tone" by Will Kevans. After all this time the song is still one of my iPod faves...the visuals in the clip are extremely memorable...and of course Mr Tovey looks like he had a blast making the clip!

Play loud enough to annoy the neighbours!
