Dannii Minogue, William Baker and Dermot O'Leary pitch up for Terry Ronald's 'Becoming Nancy' book launch
Terry Ronald held a glittering soiree this week for the launch of his fantastic new novel Becoming Nancy. Dannii Minogue turned heads looking tres chic in a Herve Leger dress. She’s on great form actually. All the judges are yet to fully sign for this year’s X Factor – but Dannii’s positive she will return after negotiations. She’s also thinking of adding to her brood from the sounds of it. Asked if she wants to have another baby she smiled coyly and said: “Probably will, yes. That’s definitely on the cards.” Also at the bash was Dermot O’Leary and funny lady Kathy Lette. Definitely check out Becoming Nancy – it makes for perfect summer holiday reading!
I’ve been a big fan of William Baker’s work over the years. His vision has shaped the career of Kylie Minogue ever since he put her in THOSE gold hotpants. And he’s a great chap in real life. I caught up with Will at Terry Ronald’s Becoming Nancy book launch this week and he told me Kylie and him have a habit of sneaking into other theatre shows undercover. “We went to watch Joan Collins in panto last year and it was the most amazing show,” he told me. “We’re both huge Joanie fans and we met her afterwards. Kylie was shaking she was so nervous about meeting her. She’s a legend to us.”
Will also says the Pop Princess has effectively banned him from joining twitter as he’s too rude. “Kylie’s banned me from twitter,” he revealed. “She says I’m a liability and I’d be too rude – which is true. There are lots of people pretending to be me which is weird. I don’t do twitter or facebook.”
