TTW: John Barrowman   Leave a comment

Oh, Captain Jack!

Hello, peeps and welcome to TTW or Tuesday Totty Watch. Every Tuesday, as the name suggests, I will feature a gorgeous specimen of British (or in this case Anglo-American) manhood for you to….observe.

So class, if you will observe Mr John Barrowman. All-singing, all-dancing, all-acting and ALL 100% hunk.

He was born in Glasgow, but moved to Illinois with his family shortly after. At the age of 20, he came back to Britain and began acting in stage musicals. His career took off from there and he has rarely been off stage or screen since. Most people would know him as Captain Jack in Torchwood and Dr Who, but he has also been a tv presenter, a judge on Any Dream Will Do and has a successful career as a solo artist. 

 

The sheer talent and energy this guy puts into his career as a performer is just amazing. Looks, talent, personality- yes, Mr John Barrowman has it all!

Suit You, Sir   Leave a comment

Ah, you’ve got to admit. There’s something about a man in a suit that’s incredibly sexy. The classic style of them, the way they instantly add a kind of James Bond-suaveness to anyone who wears them. So here’s a selection of British totty for you to feast your eyes on, ladies (and gents!)

Jude Law looking quite the dandy

 

 

The lovely Ioan Gruffudd

 

The adorable Matthew Rhys. Ok, I might have a thing for Welshmen

From the top: Jude Law, Clive Owen, Ioan Gruffudd, Matthew Rhys, Richard Armitage and James D’arcy.

 

 

Happy St. George’s Day!   Leave a comment

 

Happy St. George’s Day to all my English readers, wherever you are in the world!

However you might be celebrating your national day, I hope you are having a great time. There is so much to appreciate about England- its history, its natural beauty and culture. The many talented people who were born there and have made all our lives richer by producing fantastic works of music, literature, art, architecture, film making and design. Or who have changed our lives for the better by introducing fairer laws and political ideals (the Magna Carta, the Abolition Act which ended the slave trade or the Suffragette Movement, to name a few.)

We have all been moved by stories of the courage and bravery shown by so many notable Britons over the centuries- Wellington, Lord Nelson, Elizabeth I, Winston Churchill, Margaret Thatcher (only joking about that last one!) that I think whether we are English or not, it is worthwhile taking a moment or two to think about just how much this great island nation has given us.

Rule Britannia! (I’m rather partial to England and the English, you know.)
