For the second year running we were engaged by City TV to conduct red carpet interviews with the cinematic fraternity during The Toronto International Film Festival.
Over ten days we thrust microphones in front of Colin Farrel, Kristin Stewart, Kirsten Dunst, Christpher Walken, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Billy Bob Thornton, Kate Hudson and many more and, deploying our innate, deep lust for info and gossip, managed to get some major scoops and coups. As well as a whole load of cuddles from the Hollywood fraternity...

A quiz show featuring a host of TV celeb's, us included. Other guests included Angela Rippon and Steve Pemberton.
On this BBC 1 reality show we attempted to demonstrate existing culinary skills (ahem!) while learning a whole new kitchen skill set along the way.
Broadcast over several weeks, tasks included cooking for an entire hospital staff as well as catering for the lunch service in a top London restaurant.
In this well intentioned 'scamming' show we demonstrated, for the benefit of the British TV audience, just how easy it is to be ripped off in the world at large.
In this thirteen week series, we mix chat, music and showbiz gossip over three hours, each Sunday. Irreverent to the max and very uptempo.
Tune in to our Canadian style extravaganza on the Style Network on Sky.
A live format magazine life style chat show; we stand in for regular host Michelle MacManus for one episode with guests The Pearces and Jonathan Ross's house band 'Four Poofs And A Piano'.
A hard hitting and controversial three part documentary, during which we observe the path that led our subject, Jim, to become a rough sleeper.

Engaged to comment on the wedding of William and Kate, we appear daily on City Line, BT and City News in the run up to the big day. Adding a splash of Brittania proves to be a lot of fun!
From September 2009, when the successful TV makeover series was re-formatted without its previous host Terri Dwyer, we joined as regular presenters/decorators and fronted a total of 24 episodes.
We took our lives in our hands by agreeing to become contestants on 2009's I'm a Celebrity…Get Me out of Here! A thoroughly enjoyable - if particularly hard - experience, we did, however, lose a combined weight of 46 pounds! Boasting some of its highest audience ratings ever we had an absolute ball and would tackle a similar project without hesitation. Mind you, being lost in the jungle with Kim Woodburn for a second time might make us think twice...
Colin and Justin's Home Heist is filmed in Canada. The show premiered on the HGTV network in October 2008. Home Heist now broadcasts in approximately 20 countries such as Australia, Poland and South Africa.
During this interesting magazine format series we visited different shopping malls and built a 3D room set in each. We then decorated the set with a different theme each episode using items which we harvested from the stores in the mall. The entire series was filmed before a live audience, and was first shown in Britain on UKTV Style.
This drive time BBC Radio Scotland series (which aired on Fridays at 6.00 - 7.00p.m) saw us reinvented as DJ's! The show became renowned for its pacy, irreverent formula which was a mix of gossip, social comment and of course music.
In this hard hitting 2007 series on Chnnel Five we attempted to visually transform Arden, a council estate on the south side of Glasgow. Our simple premise was that everyone should be entitled to a good standard of living, no matter where they are on the social strata.
As part of the programme we organised and ran a charity auction (rasing 65K) at the Oran Mor arts centre in Glasgow and used the proceeds to build a much needed youth centre. Our glittering event was attended by national and local celebrities including Anna Ryder Richardson and Atomic Kitten's Liz McClarnon.
In Wedding Belles, which aired on Channel Five in 2007, we became wedding planners to prospective brides. Four one hour episodes spawned international interest and the show now airs across the globe.
In this series we counted down the best ways to increase the values of British property. The format also included Twenty Builders' Botch Ups, Twenty Design Crimes and Twenty Celebrity Fashion Frock-Ups. The series was made for the UK's Channel Five.
In 2007 we presented Hogmanay Stories, a mix of traditional New Year celebrations with music from Michelle McManus amd John Carmichael. Featuring stories from Elaine C. Smith, Cameron Stout and Aggie MacKenzie we delivered holiday messages to loved ones who found themselves away from home over the New Year period.
A British TV first, we (along with model Caprice) attempted to raise a £150,000 anamatronic 'baby'. The show charted the highs and lows as we experienced 'virtual'parenthood. Caprice infamously dropped her 'baby' while we later said in interviews that it made usrealise we'd indeed make good parents.
A reality TV series that saw us planted in rural Wiltshire, hosting twelve celebrities such as actress Charlene Tilton, model Emma B, porn star Ron Jeremy, actor Lionel Blair and ahem, Orville The Duck!
How Not to Decorate aired on the UK's Channel Five. On this show we transformed dramatically ugly interiors into effortless palaces of high design. Renowned for the bitchy 'put downs' by narrator Ed Hall, How Not To Decorate ran for four series and had a spin off show called Celebrity How Not To Decorate. During this we transformed the homes of Samantha Fox, Neil and Christine Hamilton and veteran DJ Tony Blackburn.
TMPPE is a BBC Television series which originally aired on BBC Two in the United Kingdom in 2004. During this show we invested an initial £100,000 loan from the BBC. The ultimate goal was to finish in a property worth£1million. Taking more than two years, we bought, renovated and sold seven properties across the UK with the help of our hard working project manager Nigel Leck. Our final property sold for £1.25 million and after paying back all loans we made a profit of nearly £300,000 which was donated to The BBC's Children in Need Appeal.
This live format multi camera studio show, a production for BBC1, was hosted by Lowri Turner and co-presented by us and other experts such as celebrity chef James Martin and style guru Trinny Woodall. Lasting for seven series we created live 'one hour' transformations, interacting throughout with viewers. The emphasis was about 'style on a shoestring' and the show enjoyed a spin off series called Housecall in The Country on which we also worked.
Trading Up (and its overseas spin off Trading Up In The Sun) aired on BBC One. During the run we counselled people on how to successfully sell and buy property. The former concentrated on British homes while the latter saw us travel around Spain and France in search of homes for British buyers.
