Drum roll please... the results are in!

A fantastic time was had by all last night at the final of the 2014 Funny Women Awards, hosted by the hilarious Katherine Ryan - who proved beyond any possible doubt why she won the Awards in 2008 and how she has gone from strength to strength to become one of the most popular new comedians on the live circuit and the small screen.

Smear Campaign

1st September 2014

It might not be a date on your calendar that you eagerly count down to, but a regular smear test is the best protection against cervical cancer. The test identifies changes in the cells of the cervix and early detection can prevent cervical cancer developing. In spite of this many women have never had a smear test. 

ITV's This Morning are looking for 25 people between the ages of 25-64 to appear on the show and have a smear test. The aim of the piece, No Fear Go Smear is to raise awareness and promote smear tests as nothing to fear. Participants will be pampered and receive a pedicure. A medical professional (not Holly Willoughby or Philip Schofield) will then …
