Scott McGlynn: We seen you get to Nicole Scherzinger’s judges houses, Tell me about you X-Factor experience?

James Hughes: I loved the the whole X Factor experience. Its unforgettable, there are ups and downs and its a tough!

I feel you have to be emotionally prepared for The X Factor or else it will slowly brake you. I’m happy I auditioned for The X Factor and I’m happy I’ve seen what the show can do to peoples lives.

SM: I honestly loved your audition and six chair challenge song choice “Tina Turner – Proud Mary” Your a fan of the classic i noticed, Did you grow up listening to the old divas / classics?

JH: I don’t think your much of a performer if you didn’t listen to old diva classics. The soul and passion in that music tells its own story and is nothing like the “MUSIC” we hear today.

SM: Do you think you will audition again next year (2017) ?

JH: I’ve been changing my mind so much when asked this question. I would go back if I was guaranteed to make it to the live shows, if not then i wouldn’t go back!

SM: Who are you loving on the show and why?

JH: There’s only one person left on the show that I like and its Matt Terry! I didn’t think Matt would be able to handle live shows but he’s proven me wrong and is smashing it every week. Apart from Matt I don’t really see anyone on the same level.

SM: I’ve seen on your Twitter your not a fan of Honey G can you tell me why? What was she like behind the scenes?

JH: I’ve been pretty harsh on Honey G, She’s done well to get where she has got but she has no talent and doesn’t deserve a place in that competition!

That’s what Britain’s Got Talents is for, joke acts.

SM: Being on the XF  gives you a platform, Will we be seeing you performing anywhere soon?

JH: I have lots of things planned and I’m really excited about them! I’m going to be performing in a lot of different placed and I can’t wait to tell everyone what I have planned!

SM: Do you ever suffer from nerves? If you do how do you prepare yourself?

JH: I don’t suffer from nerves, I’m a very confident individual.

Everyone gets nervous including me but I think I control it well. I just go into my own little world and do what I do best which is perform.

SM: Can you tell me your first single you bought?

JH: I think the first single I bought was “Love on Top by Beyoncé” I’ve bought so many!

SM: Who are you loving in the charts right now?

JH: I’m not really loving anyone in the charts at the moment, I don’t really think their’s any soulful songs with meaning so I’m not really interested with any current music.

Hughie Maughan Interview With Scott McGlynn

Big Brother runner up Hughie Maughan exclusive interview with Scott McGlynn.

After last weeks interview with his partner Ryan, It was a huge request to get Hughie featured for a Q&A we talked Ryan, Future Plans, Puppies and much more…

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!  

Ryan Ruckledge Interview By Scott McGlynn

TV personality Ryan Ruckledge exclusive  interview with Scott McGlynn, We seen him on The X Factor, MTV and recently Big Brother 2016! We talked future plans, Fans and Mr Hughie

 

Big-Brother-Summer-2016-Ryan-004

Scott: We see you on a few things The X Factor, Judge Geordie and recently big brother, How did you get involved in these show?

Ryan:  I’ve appeared on a few shows over the years and made an absolute joke out of myself on the like of the X-factor and judge Geordie but it was all to just try and build and profile and to get the producers of big brother to recognise me, I applied for 8 years to get on big brother and it was eighth time lucky I got on, genuinely think it’s fate I never got on any of the previous series as I was meant to meet Hughie! I’ve been a joke over the last couple of years and caused a bit of controversy when I never really wanted to, it was all to get on big brother and I’m glad I’ve changed a lot of people’s opinions of me on the show for just being me and people could see I’m different compared to the other shows I’ve been on in the past. 

Scott: How was your Big Brother experience?

Ryan:  My big brother experience was the most challenging and mentally draining thing I’ve ever done, there was times when I wanted to just quit and leave but kept telling myself I would regret it and I’m so glad I never! I mean what do u do for 24hours a day with no phone no tv no nothing and what do u talk about! The days are so long and 24 hours feels like 24 days! When days was bad they was bad and when they was good they was incredible! Best thing I ever did and won’t ever forget it.

Scott: We all know about you a Hughie, I love you guys BTW! Was it love a first sight?

Ryan:  Aww thank you, and to be honest it wasn’t love at first site! I initially saw this tanned guy who was quite confident and a bit like me in some aspects and instantly thought we was going to clash, after a few hours tho we got on so well and formed a good bond and I knew we was going to be At least good mates but never thought anything more of it! It was till after I got chose to go to the main house after the first three days I realised I had stronger feelings than just friends, I was really missing him! Then I think it was day ten when I got sent back to the others house I couldn’t wait to see him and that’s when he went in for a kiss and it just progressed from there! If he hadn’t of made a move on me I’m not sure if I would of dared because I hate rejection, especially on national TV so I’m glad he did haha!

landscape-1468181689-bb8

Scott: Are you a official couple? It nice to know the long distance isn’t going to effect you both and make it work! 

Ryan: Yeah me and Hughie are 100% official and in a relationship, the long distance thing does bother me slightly only because I can’t see him whenever I like but we are seeing each other as much as we can and he’s recently just been to Blackpool to meet my mum and family! We are planning on moving in together in the next few months when he moves to the UK!

Scott: People on twitter, keep saying you & Hughie should do a TV show, If you had a chance to, what would it be about?

Ryan:  The demand for me and Hughie to get our own reality show is crazy, almost every tweet is about it! It’s flattering, we would both love to do it! I think it would be a reality one like Katie and Oeter following our lives and him moving in with me in the UK and stuff! Just being us the jokers that we are!

Scott: Any of your ex housemates you don’t want to see again?

Ryan: I don’t want to see Natalie, Jason and Marco!

Scott: Tell us 3 facts that people may not know about yourself?

Ryan: Three facts id say, I used to do athletics when I was younger for about 10 years! I once fell over on a gravestone and chipped my front tooth on it that’s why it’s chipped haha and i once got four stick-men tattooed on my arm as a dare.

Scott: What’s your top 3 grooming tips?

Ryan: I’m not really good with grooming to be honest I always say tho I love a good tan, white teeth and Vaseline on your eyelashes makes them grow!

Scott: What’s your perfect date? 

Ryan:  I don’t really have a perfect date and I don’t really go on many I get too nervous! I’m very spontaneous and crazy as I’m sure you’ve gathered and I’d love to do something like a bunker jump or a sky dive then get drunk after haha! No ones been brave enough yet, I’m sure I can persuade Hughie 🙂

Scott:  What’s next Ryan?

Ryan:  I’m not sure to be honest what’s next For me, I do know that I’m looking forward to being with Hughie and meeting his family! Then the next stage is to move in together which is so exciting! I’m sure this won’t be the last you guys will see of me tho x

Mark Byron By Scott McGlynn

Exclusive interview with reality star Mark Byron by Scott McGlynn

JS80884611

Scott: What’s life been like since big brother? 
Mark: Life has been really magical after Big Brother it’s changed my life so much. It’s given me a world of opportunities and I feel so lucky! I’ve made amazing friends and had an incredible experience. 
It’s rare these days for housemates to maintain a profile or still earn money after the show and it feels great to be in the very small group of those who have done so.
Scott: I know you write a column about this years BB, what do you think of the housemates?
Mark: I think the housemates are really fantastic this year! 90% of them have delivered and that’s rare!! They have kept me entertained since launch night 
Scott: Who do you love and hate?
Mark: Ryan and Sam have been my favourites as I’m actually friends with both on the outside world. I also love Hughie, his outbursts are just gold! Andy for me is the worst he is so evil and manipulative.
Scott: If you were in there this year, who would you clash with?
Mark: I would definitely clash with Andy and Jason. Even though Hughie is amazing I could see my self having a few rows with him as we’re both very loud and proud in our opinions.
Mark-Columns-bb17
Scott: Your a very fashionable guy, Where do you like to shop? Where do you get your inspiration from?
Mark: My wardrobe is mostly premium high street but I have a few bargains and a few designer pieces too.
I’m not sure where I get my inspiration from as dressing well just comes naturally to me. It’s fun for me and definitely a hobby. Life is more fun when you live glamorously.
Scott: Congratulations on being in “Aladdin” this coming Christmas, how did this come about? 
Mark: I was approached by LHK productions and naturally jumped at the chance! It will be a wonderful opportunity and a lot of fun! I’ve always wanted to branch out into acting so I’m very excited.
Scott: What fake stories have you heard or seen written about you?
Mark: I’ve been pretty lucky with my press stories. There were a few fantasy ones that came out in big brother and just after but nothing too bad!
Scott: What will be your perfect date? 
Mark: People naturally assume I’d be a nightmare high maintenance boyfriend as I’m so glamorous but honestly I like simple things too! My ideal date would be lunch in Mayfair with lots of Laurent Perrier Rosé champagne followed by a romantic walk in Hyde park and maybe a ride on a boat. That would be so cute.
Scott: Whats your plans this summer? Can we be seeing you at any events?
Mark: I’m at about 5 events weekly at the moment! A lot of wonderful bars have been opening. Last week I absolutely loved the launch party of an incredible new Champagne bar called Bubbles on the pier head in liverpool. 
Ive also attending Newcastle pride and I’ll be attending Liverpool pride in a few weeks where I’ll be hosting on stage.

Richard: I wasn’t big on actors as a kid… Apart from Michael Jackson, I was a massive Gene Kelly & Fred Astaire fan… Still am.

Scott: When did you know acting was your passion and wanted it to be career of yours?
Richard: I trained as a dancer & started out in the musicals (I played ‘Flat Top’ then ‘Electra’ in Starlight Express)… I kind of just fell into acting, loved it, never looked back.

Scott: You been in some amazing programmes like “Bad Girls” “Where the heart is” and “waterloo road” how was the auditioning process?
Richard: The audition process is always tough & that will never change. You have to develop thick skin very quickly in order to manage inevitable rejection… The upside is, it makes success taste even sweeter when it comes around & you learn to appreciate every second.
