Sadie Frost is on good form right now. We had a natter at a celebrity packed Hepatitis C fundraiser event and she told me she’s just enjoyed a truly relaxing holiday in Kerala in India with her kids. “India’s heavenly and I honestly was possibly the most relaxed I’ve ever been,” she told me. “I tweeted saying I have never been so in love and everyone thought I was talking about a man. I wasn’t at all. I’m single right now.
“I’m in a really happy place actually. I’m nearly three years sober now, I’m fit and healthy and my children are great. I think I’ve learnt to be happy in my own skin actually.”
The actress, who’s releasing her autobiography Crazy Days in paperback soon, also says she’s going for meetings in LA next week. “I’ve got a few exciting meetings,” she smiled. “But we’ll have to wait and see how they go.” Good luck.

Boy George and Adam Ant perform at Jazz Cafe London 31st May2011

Thanks to Lisa Moorish and Boy George (above performing with Adam Ant) the evening raised an incredible £10,000 for the Hepatitis C Trust and their Get Tested campaign. Boy George took various photographs of celebrities dressed up as eighties icons with staggering results. Sadie Frost was transformed into Madonna, Lisa Moorish was Grace Jones, celebrity chef Gizzi Erskine was Siouxie Sioux and Paloma Faith was Boy George himself….

On the night the signed pictures were auctioned off – with Mat Horne even agreeing to fix one of the framed prints to the wall of a bidder’s house in nothing but his undies. Get him. Lisa and George are trying to raise the profile of Hepatitis C and the importance of getting tested for the disease. It’s thought thousands could have it without even knowing.

The event of the week was held by Lisa Moorish (above with bher Royal Highness Jodie Harsh) to raise money for the Hep C Trust. Boy George – who smashed it performing Do You Really Want To Hurt Me – hosted proceedings and introduced various other performers to stage throughout the evening. Paloma Faith made my spine tingle singing and Adam Ant proved he was well and truly back and ready to tour with a string of his hits. Lisa told me: “The night’s been a huge success. Everybody turned out in support of the charity and it’s important we raise awareness about this. As somebody who has seen what Hep C does to a person I know how important it is to organise events for this charity. I urge everyone to go online and read more about it and get tested. ”
