This time last year, Laila Rouass was in Strictly. And not only that, she got to dance with Anton. Ok, he may have put his usually nimble feet right in it a couple of times in a manner for which he rightly had to humbly apologise, but they were still good together and they made it to the Quarter Final.
Here is their American Smooth:
I was thrilled that Anton actually had a partner who could dance and it was fabulous that he managed to get all the way to December.
Anyway, since then Laila has landed a role in Spooks and, more importantly, this week has seen her in the Sarah Jane Adventures as the Colonel in UNIT who comes to break the news of the Doctor's death.
I've watched both parts of Death of the Doctor on CBBC earlier in the week, but they're on BBC 1 today and tomorrow at 4.30 pm.The story is brilliant and it's fair to say that Ms Rouass looks mighty fetching in UNIT uniform.
In the last year, she's had two of my absolute dream jobs, covering two of my absolute favourite programmes. Not bad at all.
