British Soap Awards Best Dressed

Eevee’s Erin Hushon gives her verdict on the best dressed celebs at this year’s British Soap Awards… Michelle Keegan may have walked away with the sexiest female award again this year, but I believe that it was the Hollyoaks cast that truly stole the show. Here’s 9 of my favourite outfits from the night. 1. Jacqueline Jossa Best known for her role as Lauren Branning on Eastenders, this year she has once again proved her fashion credentials. The royal blue in her dress was complementary to her skin tone, and the added sex appeal reminded people why she is one of  soaps sexiest females....

Beauty: As Simple As That

Beauty products, surgery and the male perception of feminine beauty: Eevee’s newest writer, Irene Solombrino explains why being beautiful really means loving yourself… I should start by saying that I’m VERY self-conscious about the way I look. Like most women, when I look in the mirror, I’m not that satisfied. I don’t see myself, I see the way I want to be.

Alzheimer’s Took My Mother

Sad, funny and beautifully moving: In the first part of a brand new series, Eevee’s Chris Tobin talks about his mother’s Alzheimer’s diagnosis and explains why he’s chosen to share his family’s journey… I truly wish in this diary serialisation of my mother’s battle with Alzheimer’s I could start at the very beginning, unfortunately, there is no beginning, no defining moment where I can put my finger on a pivotal action, where I looked at her & quite properly assumed she had lost her mind, when that look she always had in her eyes when we were children, disappeared...

Heather Watson Back On The Road To Success

Whilst Laura Robson might be Britain’s current tennis darling, Eevee’s Martin Whiteley explains the how her friend and rival, Heather Watson is back on the road to success and out to steal Laura’s crown… While Serena Williams was claiming her 60th title on the (WTA) tour in Rome, a far greater battle was being won by Heather Watson in Prague. Ranked 112 coming into this (ITF) event — the tier below the WTA —  Watson had to first beat the world number 98 Timea Babos, after the weather had delayed their semi final match, just to reach the championship...
