Konnie Huq said she felt “liberated” after leaving the show that made her famous, Blue Peter, when I bumped into her at the Fiji water sponsored launch of London Restaurant Week at private members club The Hospital last week. We talked about her pal David Walliams and all the rumours that they were an item. She laughed: ‘It’s so hard for him. I guess he goes for a meal with a girl and then suddenly he’s with them and they are bonking. It’s hysterical really. I think he secretly loves it. He loves being single and there was nothing going on between us. He’s working hard on the US version of Little Britain and he’s there until June. The new series will be ace.”
And why was Konnie out in California? “Part holiday and part work,” she revealed. “I had some interesting meetings with some great agents.” Move over Cat Deeley – Konnie’s after your US crown!
