It’s 4:30 am and I can’t sleep. It’s not that usual insomnia involving tossing and turning for no apparent reason. It’s not the ‘Oh my God my heart is going to explode because I’m so wired and uncomfortable in my own skin from the partying’ type of insomnia that I haven’t experienced in six years either. I’m wide awake at 4:30 am because I’m a few hours away from sharing a car and sitting on a panel with the voice of God himself, Sir David Attenborough — later today, we will be previewing his new short film about the conservation of Richmond Park.

Finally I fall asleep. A few hours later I’m standing out front of my house, waiting for the car to pick me up. At 8:55 am, a sleep deprived mess of a Dougie Poynter, complete with a fossilized dinosaur poop in hand, steps into the car — I brought the poop along incase I ran out of things to talk about. At 8:56 am we arrive at Sir David’s house where he’s ready to go with his distinctive white whispy hair, dressed in a navy blazer with khaki pants. He greets me with a beaming smile and a very comfy shake, “Hello”. I remind him that we briefly met on The Graham Norton Show where I first admitted to him that I moved to Richmond after a Google search of his residence, which he thankfully remembers and doesn’t find too creepy.

To rewind a bit, shortly after getting sober and looking for a fresh start, I began to look for a new place to live. I sat at my computer and Googled “Where does David Attenborough live?” I thought to myself, “Wherever Attenborough lives must be the most serene and green place in London”. So after searching for the perfect place I eventually found myself living in Richmond, home of Sir David Attenborough himself. He was right. Richmond kicks ass — the park, the deer, the river, the Mick Jagger… it was the perfect place to move when looking for a fresh start; and today is the day I get to indulge in my adulation for both the park and Sir David.

Off we go on what feels like a surreal dream narrated by my childhood hero; the man behind Planet Earth. Within minutes, I pull out the dinosaur poop fossil. After a quick glance and a study, he tells me that it’s probably not real because dinosaur droppings would fall with a splat much like cow droppings. Sh*t! Five minutes in and, one, I’ve already used my wild card, and two, I’m realising I’ve been duped! Great. My voice gets jittery, my mouth goes dry, my lips are sticking to my teeth and my nose starts tingling. Thankfully he doesn’t seem to notice.

Danny wrote an interesting article on the Huffington post talking about how important it is to support young musicians.

Some of you may know me, others may not. For those who don’t, I’m Danny Jones: singer, songwriter, producer and a member of the band, McFly. This summer I will be fortunate enough to be a coach on ITV’s The Voice Kids. My recent experience as a coach hit close to home, and made me want to speak up about the importance of why we MUST support our nation’s musically-gifted kids.

I read an article recently by Dr. Ally Daubney of the University of Sussex and she warned us loud and clear that music could face extinction in secondary state schools throughout England. This got me thinking and was a real concern for me. You and I both know that if music is not offered in schools, it’s also unlikely to be offered at home. We need to all join forces now in supporting our kids that want to be involved in music. If we don’t, we will witness a generation of storytellers and overall trendsetters come and go without leaving its deserved cultural mark on our great nation.

Although the threat of music being eradicated in our schools is becoming more real, we can still help the UK’s younger generation leave its deserved cultural mark on this planet regardless of this potential threat. I’m convinced that there are three actions we can take to ensure we are doing everything possible to support the potential in our musically-gifted kids. The first is being vocal about our support. Showing the kids that they are backed every step of the way no matter what, and that we believe in their dream as much as they do.

Secondly, we must re-educate the kids on what failure actually is, and thus why they should not fear failure, whatsoever. Thirdly, we need to help our musically-gifted kids understand how what they learn in school will absolutely apply to their professional musical art in the future. If we can commit to take these three actions, I am confident we can save the next generation of Beatles, David Bowies and Rolling Stones.

McFly star Dougie Poynter is set to star in the latest film being crowd-funded on Cambridge platform SyndicateRoom.

Being produced by Boudica Indigo films, Kat and the Band will tell the story of a 16-year-old girl who lives her dream by taking a band on tour, despite having no experience of working in the industry and still being at school.

How Poynter, who has played bass in McFly since it formed in 2003, is unclear at present, but the 29-year-old has apparently been out in America trying to get his acting career off the ground in recent months, and this could be his big break.

Lead investor on the project is Ian Maiden, who has made two film investments in the past and is putting in £250,000 for this project.

I bet those kids enjoyed the surprise guest!

[x3]EVENTS AND APPEARANCES > 2017 > RED NOSE DAY, SUDBURY – MARCH 24

Youngsters at St Gregory Primary School in Sudbury were given a Red Nose Day treat as McFly drummer Harry Judd dropped in to meet the pupils.

In the run up to red nose Day, Comic Relief and Pinterest had invited teachers from schools across the country to save their Red Nose Day fundraising ideas on a Pinterest board for a teacher fundraising contest.

The competition organisers said the winning school would get a special visit from a mystery celebrity.

St Gregory’s staff pinned a host of fun fundraising ideas including a lunch-time rave, red nose bowling and a play dough day on its board, to scoop the mystery guest prize.

Following up on the competition prize, McFly drummer Harry Judd emerged as the mystery guest, who met pupils at the school and serenaded the pupils with a drum performance while they enjoyed a spontaneous Christmas dinner.

So the secret is out, the secret project Harry was working on is a book!! and to celebrate the release he did a video talking about what we’ll find on it. Also you can pre order your copy of the book already HERE . The release date is 19 October 2017

[x2]PHOTOSHOOTS > 2017 > GET FIT, GET HAPPY PROMOTIONAL SHOOT

The drummer will release Get Fit, Get Happy later this year, which will be part fitness plan and part memoir

MCFLY star Harry Judd has stripped off to launch his first fitness book, after transforming his body to tackle mental health issues.

The drummer is to open up about suffering from anxiety for the first time in Get Fit, Get Happy, which will tell how he has used exercise to conquer his demons.

The star will explain how he has used fitness to redress the balance in his life with a combination of exercise and dance to make fitness fun and accessible.

The 31-year-old musician has even created a video to promote the upcoming release, in which he shows off some of his workout routine and gets topless.

Speaking about the book, Harry said: “I’ve used exercise to overcome the strains and stresses of some of the most difficult moments in my life.

“These are issues that I know many of us have, and I’m so excited to show everyone how it’s possible to use exercise in a way that is fun, fast and free to get your head in the right place, to feel good about life and to feel great about yourself.”

It promises to reveal details of the “richly researched” fitness plan behind his buff body.

During his time in McFly and supergroup McBusted, he has notched up 19 hit singles including seven No1s, as well as two No1 albums.

But his chiselled body isn’t only a result of his time in the gym.

Harry, who has 14-month-old daughter Lola with his wife Izzy Johnston, famously won Strictly Come Dancing in 2011.

The book will be published through Coronet, an imprint of Hodder & Stoughton.

Publisher Charlotte Hardman said: “Harry is incredibly passionate about encouraging people to embrace fitness as a way to make themselves feel better and to spread a bit of happiness.

“By laying bare his own life story and sharing his own personal experience of the benefits of exercise, Harry will inspire others to do the same.

“He shows us that we don’t need expensive kit, a gym membership or even lots of time to make a difference: this is a plan for everyone.

“I’m thrilled to be working with Harry and delighted about the potential for what we have to achieve together with Get Fit, Get Happy.”
