Gorgeous George Hamilton

Gorgeous George c. 1960

"You're sixty six years old, you've finally got your head together
and your ass is falling off!"

George Hamilton
(b. 1939)

I can't believe George Hamilton has quit the jungle!!

I've really enjoyed watching I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, and George was my absolute favourite. He's always laughing, he's lovely, funny, very easy going and his stories are fabulous. I particularly like his relationship with Kim Woodburn which was a joy to watch.

He told Kim he doesn't need or want to win it, he would rather one of the younger ones (Stuart) won as he is at the end of his career and they are at the beginning. When he came out he told Ant and Dec he'd like Gino to win. I'm pleased about that as I really like Gino. I do absolutely love Kim and she would make a great winner.

On the plus side, the show has massively changed the public perception of him which is fantastic and well deserved. I'm sure he'll be very much in demand.

George starred in over a hundred films and TV shows, the most well known being Godfather III, Evel Knievel, Love at First Bite, Crocodile Dundee and Dynasty, but was more well known for his perpetual tan, his sharp dressing and his way with the ladies. Here is a gallery dedicated to 'Gorgeous George' and (some) of his women.

Stuart Laing's 40th Birthday Party

The second 40th Birthday of the night was our great friend actor Stuart Laing's party at the Music Palace in Crouch End. It was lovely to catch up with so many of our fantastic friends and spend time with the wonderful Stu and Ali. We intended to leave when the party finished but were having such a good time we ended up going to an after party hosted by Dave Holland which was lots of fun. We got a cab back in the pouring rain this morning and went straight to bed. Popped out for a roast and now all we're good for is lying in front of the television watching Come Dine with Me, I'm a Celebrity (love George Hamilton, what a legend!) and The Queen on Channel 4.
