What To Do This Weekend: Watch Great Expectations and Learn the Dance Routine to Beyonce's Single Ladies
Watch... Great Expectations
With the big freeze set to hit this weekend, venturing outside seems rather unappealing but we’d certainly recommend wrapping up warm and heading out to see Great Expectations.With a screenplay by one of our favourite authors David Nicholls and starring the incredibly talented Holliday Grainger and Helena Bonham Carter, it’s a must-see movie.
Learn A New Skill...
If Strictly Come Dancing has inspired you to brush up on your ballroom or top up your tango then Gymbox on St Martin’s Lane in Covent Garden are holding ‘So you think you can’t dance’ classes over the next three Saturdays. From 2-3pm on 1st, 8th and 15th December and just £25 per couple per class, be taught by one of Girls Aloud’s backing dancers and learn some of your favourite celeb inspired dance routines. ‘All the single ladies…’

Watch... I'm A Celebrity
We are hopelessly addicted to I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here and with just three celebs left in the running, we’ll be tuning into to ITV1 on Saturday (post X Factor, natch) to see who will be crowned King or Queen of the jungle. Will it be Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts, Eastender Charlie Brooks or heavyweight champion David Haye?
Drink at... The Oast House, Manchester
We’re not quite sure how its December already but that does mean we can officially start celebrating Christmas – well, sort of. The Oast House in Manchester has opened The Curious TeePee. With its open fire and blankets for warmth, you can tuck into a hog roast while drinking warm cider and mulled wine all under a pointy canvas roof. Cosy.
Read... India Knight's Mutton
If you fancy snuggling up with a glass of wine and a good book this weekend, grab a copy of India Knight’s fourth novel, Mutton, which offers a witty take on the ageing process, delivered in her usual pity, thought-provoking style.
