Florence Henderson-One Saucy Lady

Florence Henderson has done it all- Broadway musicals, hosted TV chat and game shows, written cook books and fronted a TV cookery show. She's even a trained hypnotherapist.

Most people would remember her as the enduring Carol Brady from The Brady Bunch which was filmed from 1969 to 1974 but is probably being shown right now on a TV station in every country in the world.

At the moment Florence is in Australia to promote Ardmona's new range of tomato pastes..(motto :"paste the difference"..gedditt) so Ardmona threw a small bash for about 50 guests and Flo at the hip new restaurant Concrete Blonde in Kings Cross.

The Shuttle has met Florence before, around 20 years ago in London. She doesn't seem to have aged one bit despite being a grand 76 years old but looking a good 20 younger. And up close and personal she hasn't had any nips and tucks, Flo is just one of those lucky people with great bones which the camera simply loves.

Florence told us about her early life as the daughter of share crop farmers in Indiana where her dad grew tomatoes so she reckons she's a bit of an authority on this wonder food which she eats every day of life. Perhaps that's her secret.

Clive James is still very much alive and not planning to leave this mortal coil any day soon and he'd like the world to know after the Shuttle (and the world's media) wrote him off last week.

We don't usually fall for tabloid beat-ups but we plead guilty to believing the UK Daily Mirror. Clive found out of his imminent demise when tributes started to flow in.
 Sorry Clive!
