Big-Brother-Summer-2016-Hughie-004

Scott: How did you get involved in Big Brother? Was it something you always wanted to do? Was it an easy audition process? 

Hughie: I’ve always been a massive fan of big brother and reality TV shows since I was a kid. At the start of the year I wrote a bucket list and getting on big brother was on it , so I searched online found an email address for a casting producer and emailed them about myself and why they should have me. After that there came a rigorous process to get on the show of phone calls, Interviews and meetings in London until I was chosen as a housemate. Getting in that house is the best thing that’s ever happened to me.

Scott: We all know about the romance between yourself and Ryan, Was it love at first sight? 

Hughie:  I wouldn’t say that for either of us not that I didn’t think he was attractive or anything but I didn’t know if Ryan was being himself on the first night I didn’t know if we would get on, I thought we might clash. But by the 2nd day I knew he was himself just that he had a fantastic personality. It wasn’t until we were separated when he went over to the main house that we both really started to miss each other and when he came back I kissed him on the first night and it went from there.

Scott: I loved you in the house, Not afraid to stand up what you believe in, Natalie was a horrid woman! Have you seen her since the show? Did she make your experience more difficult? 

Hughie:  I’m a very honest person and I say how I feel and I’m really glad that people seen that because it could of went another way that I came out looking bad because I argued quite a bit but i didn’t thankfully. I’m just really passionate about the way I feel. Natalie is a disgrace of a women. horrible in every sense of the word .. I hate even talking about her because I know she wanted to be seen in a controversial way and be the “bitch” of the series. She had a dark presence about her she was always dressed in black and wearing dark Sun glasses. And sitting in the smoking area throwing in comments left right and centre when she deemed necessary to people. Me mostly. I was top of the list for this twat. I chose in the end to ignore her and I let the public do the talking and boy did they . She would have ruined my experience if I had let her but I didn’t. She made me uncomfortable at times though and I was glad to see the back of her. I hope to never see that thing again.

Scott: Since you been out, I know you had a lot of positive reactions which is amazing! Any not so positive things or rumours you can share with us / clear up? 

Hughie:  Yes I’ve had an amazing reaction from the public which I am so happy about. Thank you to all of them. But strangely I haven’t really had any hate online or in the press just positive really. I mean I get the odd comment saying Hughie kicks and screams when he’s not getting his own way .. but that is the extent of the negativity as far as I’ve seen.

Scott: In my last interview with Ryan, He said about you moving to London sometime this year and live together, You looking forward to the big move? Hows your family feeling you moving from Dublin? 

Hughie:  Yes I am looking forward to moving to the UK and starting a new life . My family are happy if I am and I’m an adult so I control my own life now. Ireland will always be home but I’m ready for a change.

Scott: We also talked about people online saying you and Ryan should get your own show, Do you think we be seeing it? 

Hughie: So many people say that all the time. Literally thousands of people have said that . There are threads on Twitter and pages dedicated to us being back on there screens again. I really want to do more reality TV and I’m going to make that happen for myself but if I got to do a show with Ryan it would be amazing. I think one about my move to the UK would be a good concept.

Scott: How’s it been being a public figure, Everyone knowing you, and the TV / Press? 

Hughie:  It’s so weird but funny as well because I am such a fan of people who know me as well and follow me online and speak about me on tv . Reading about myself in the paper is so strange as well. The weirdest thing to happen is a police man in Oxford street who was about 55 years old asking me for a selfie. That was just not the type of person I thought was watching. But I’ve always wanted to be on television so it’s a dream come true.

Scott: I brought my first book out this year called “OUT” its my true life story about coming out as gay and getting bullied in school for who I was, Did you every suffer from bullying, How was your coming out? 

Hughie: I was horrendously bullied as a kid , always called homophobic names by adults and kids . It was horrible and ruined my childhood but I’m happy now. My coming out story is different to others because a lot of my family and friends found out on television when I was talking about it on the show. I only told who I deemed necessary beforehand . But every 1 has been amazing. It’s at a stage in my life now where I don’t care how others feel about it if I had a family member who had a problem with it I would cut them out of my life now a days. I have to think of myself.

Scott: When you an Ryan move in and settle down, Are you going to get any pets like puppy’s? What;s your favourite breed? 

Hughie: .Ryan doesn’t Care to have a pet but I want a French bull dog called harry. A boy one. I want the blue grey colour.  They are stunning. Ryan can dog sit for me haha!

Scott: Ryan did say he will be starting a Youtube channel, Are you going to join him or start your own channel? 

Hughie: I’m sure I’ll make the odd appearance on his channel. I would like to do my own sometime but I’m not very good with social media. I need to learn more before hand and come up with a theme for my videos and site.

Scott: What is planned for Hughie, Anything you love to do like another TV show, Clothing range etc? 

Hughie:  I really want to do another reality show. Something fun and young like Ibiza weekender. I think I would’ve really good on that. There is so much that I want to do in the industry if I have the chance but I am still young I’m 22 at the end of the day so I can go out and work for anything in my opinion. I’m going to make things happen for myself.

QUOTE FROM SCOTT:

 I just like to say thank you to Ryan & Hughie for working with me they are 2 amazing guys & I hope you work with them in the future! 

Also their fans for all your support on Twitter and enjoying my work, 

THANK YOU!  

Haydn Blower Interview with Scott McGlynn

Haydn Blower who has a passion for singing, modelling and dancing, He’s well know for uploading his first freestyle dance video, this video had 37,000 views in just over a week, I caught up with Haydn to talk more about YouTube, Modelling, Fashion and more… 

676171c6-e745-4ff8-84d4-f43c711ba788

 

Scott:  We know for YouTube channel, Your freestyle dance video got huge hits, What was you feeling from all the support? 
Haydn: I think the feeling was shocked at first, so crazy that someone out there liked what I did and that’s a great feeling 

Scott:  Your channel is full of mix videos, what’s been your favourite bar your dance video?

Haydn: Well I like the singing ones cause you can show passion when you sing and I think everyone enjoyed it and could connect.

 

Scott: You do a lot of modelling how did you get into it?

Haydn: Just posting random pictures on social media and got asked by a brand by the name of OnePiece if I would model some of their stuff in return for goods and opportunities 

 

Scott: What’s been your best shoot so far?

 Haydn: Along with the OnePiece one I did one for my website which was great fun cause I could do whatever

Scott: Any advice to people starting out in modelling you can give?

Haydn: Don’t stay in your comfort zone try new style of clothes and always bring your personality out in photos you take it puts you from the rest of everyone else


Scott: You a brand ambassador for “OnePiece” what can you tell me more about the brand?

Haydn: Well the company was founded in 2007 on a Sunday morning in Oslo Norway the idea came of tying together a hoodie with a pair sweatpants using a giant zipper ended up in what would become the OnePiece Jumpsuit, the very core product of the brand. Some said it would look stupid, some said it wouldn’t last, most people agreed it wouldn’t work out. But they became a global movement of slackers, counting 10 Concept Stores, over 1000 retailers selling in over 100 countries and over 1 million fans worldwide – and the slumber party has barely just started…

 

Scott: I recently brought out my first book called “OUT” its my autobiographical story of being gay in high school age 11 and getting bullied for who i am, What advice would you say to people getting bullied?
Haydn: I got bullied myself at a young age moving schools and even been having to be pulled out a one point as it was affecting my grades but I chose to go back to school cause I know that school was just a small part of my life and that I was going on to do better things then the people who put me down, so my advice would be stay cool headed and surrounding yourself with good friends at school or wherever and just think you in the end will come out on top
Scott: We love to see you come around the UK any plans for this?

Haydn: I will be doing a few tours of the UK with events coming up
Scott: What’s the 3 most things you can not live without?

Damien O’Brien interview with Scott McGlynn

Damien O’Brien is well known magician to the stars and TV from Alexandra Burke to Kesha, He’s travelled worldwide to show his amazing talent, I caught up with Damien for a Q&A enjoy…

unnamed (7)
Scott – We seen you on “BBC 3 Killer Magic” what was it like? Did you enjoy the experience?
Damien – Killer Magic was a lot of fun to film , it gave us all a chance to show off our talents and to also reach a new audience , I personally loved the experience as I got to work with 4 amazing magicians incredible directors and producers plus I got to try out big illusions and tricks I have always wanted to do what was fun.
Scott – Your well known for your tricks with celebrities who has been your favourite and why?
Damien –  I would have to say Nelly has still been my favourite just because of his reactions he was so chilled out and just loved every second of it , but Alexandra Burke is a close second for me as she goes cray when you pull off a trick to her , see for me its not always about who I’m performing to its more about getting that great reaction
Scott – Out of everything you do from magician to hypnotist which is your number 1 trick is your personal favourite? 
Damien – Hmmmm that’s a tough question as I have so many , but I think my favourite trick was from Killer Magic doing the card in the fish as it was so random and the guys just went absolutely crazy when the found their signed card in the fish , its reactions like that what makes magic so much fun for me.
Scott – Has there ever been a time something went wrong? If yes explain what happened.
Damien – Yeah sometimes things ain’t gone right and I have to fix it like I might get the wrong card and then I just have to make it lookalike I did that on purpose and recover you would never know I did something wrong as a good magician can recover.
Scott –  Have you got any plans doing a UK tour visiting city’s?
Damien  – I don’t have plans for a UK tour as I’m not really a stage magician so all my work is private booked but who knows maybe one day ill decide to create a stage show.
Scott – I recently brought out my book called “OUT” dealing with sexuality and bulling in school, If you have something to people getting bullied in school or workplaces what would it be?
Damien – It would be don’t be afraid to talk to people and let others help sometimes we are to proud to admit these things and to admit we need help , so my advise is you should never have to be bullied by anyone so never be afraid to ask people for help.
Scott – Is their anyone you like to meet to do tricks on that you haven’t already? 
Damien – I always wanted to do magic to Eminem I grew up listening to his music the man is a genius so that would 100% be my first choice.
Scott – Now with BGT back on our TV screen, any magicians you enjoyed watching?
Damien – I think there has only been one magician i haven’t  watched to much of BGT I never do , but the one I saw he seemed OK hopefully we will see some more magicians.
Scott – What advice would you give young magician’s starting out?
Damien – PRACTICE !!! and perform as much as possible as it will help so much I know so many magicians who are skilled but can’t perform , the performance is everything I say its a good 80% and the other 20% is pulling of the trick so practice and perform as much as you can.
Scott – *This is a request question from your fans* Do you have snapchat?
 I have snapchat a lot of time its me posting up food and photos after the gym my add is the same as my Twitter , Facebook and Instagram DamienMagician , if you want to watch my tricks in action then subscribe to my YouTube channel www.YouTube.com/DamienMagician
