My Weekly Latest Issue October 27

Cover of My weekly latest issue with Shirley Bassey and Mexican magic cookery

My Weekly editor Stuart JohnstoneAmong all the Covid bad news, I was mildly gutted to hear that the latest James Bond film, No Time To Die, will not be released until next year. Fortunately – albeit indirectly – I’m getting a bit of a 007 fix in this week’s issue with our exclusive interview with the one and only Dame Shirley Bassey, who of course sang three of the best James Bond themes. The legendary singer is on brilliant form and shows absolutely no sign of slowing down as she moves into her 80s, with a new album just about to be released. I hope you enjoy our wide-ranging chat with the star! Have a great week.

You simply have to try these!

I've worked on a variety of regional newspapers and national magazines. My Weekly and Your Best Ever Christmas are fantastic, warm-hearted brands with an amazing, talented team. I'm a sub-editor and particularly love working on cookery, fiction and advice pages - I feel I should know all the secrets of eternal life, health and happiness by now, but hey, we all need that regular reminder!
