I am back from my Honeymoon with my beautiful new wife Claudia. Sad to be home and cold but excited to hear of all the things that went on in my absence.
Firstly we had the Olly Murs and Caroline flack shooting in Studio 1 for the XtraFactor for ITV.
Caroline did her very best Niki Ninaj Impression and Olly did his best 'Dumb and Dumber' impression but getting his tongue stuck to an ice sculpture.
inside as it is outside. Here he is with our music video director Tai Campbell.
Please watch James May's, Things You Need to Know, all of which was shot in our studio 2 and involved alot of fishy reconciliatons, motorbike stunts in corridoors, greasy fatty food diets and much more backstage antics.

I put various links, just so you can pick one that you feel would be better. They are all relatively short, including the short film.
On what we want to do in the studio, it is a short 60 second look at the boxers anatomy as they prepare for a fight. We're hoping to get both Chris Evangelou and Nicola Adams who recently won gold in boxing at the Olympics.
The idea is that the boxer is throwing a punch towards the punching bag and we have close ups of their muscles as they do this, so close up of biceps, sweat on the face, legs moving, chalk coming off their hands, and as they hit the bag, we cut to them knocking someone out in the ring. We're looking to shoot everything in slow motion.
The below comment came after Jose's shoot and we are looking forward to seeing some pictures of the day too.
The below is an update on Jam's work and how he plans to use his winning studio day.
