The Munch Box, ITV & CITV

Layla Anna Lee |

Just imagine the mess made during a game entitled ‘Pancake Head’.

Last year The Munch Box debuted on Saturday mornings on ITV with teams of boys vs girls competing against each other in the kitchen.

The teams are made up of chefs aged between 9 and 12 years old who compete in a series of cook off’s and culinary challenges judged by a celebrity chef & his two Munch Box tasters.

We had laughter, tears and lots of spreadable chocolate. The young teams are inspiring in the kitchen – with no boundaries and an array of healthy ingredients they cooked a divine Thai Prawn Tagliatelle – the pasta handmade from scratch!

I tasted the juiciest, most flavoursome beef burger I had ever experienced and when I asked the 9 year old chef to describe the flavour he proudly claimed “it tastes like a burger”.

Children recreated dishes from The Wolseley restaurant FROM MEMORY and now we’re back for series 2.

I’m joined by a brand new co-host, Joe Hurd. The Anglo-Italian chef will be helping me guide the mini chefs in the kitchen as they prepare for an even tougher series of culinary challenges.

Empowering children and educating audiences with fresh home-made deliciousness makes this a show I’m incredibly proud to be part of.

Join us in the kitchen at 8:30am The Munch Box Saturday mornings on ITV!

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

I was nominated to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge in order to raise awareness for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

I accept and I nominate my good friend photographer Tom Leishman, my KickTV co-host & former USA national soccer player Jimmy Conrad, meu amigo Barcelona midfielder Rafinha Alcantara, and I challenged Crystal Palace Co-Chairman Steve Parish!

I wonder who will accept?!

A ‘Happy’ Protest

Layla Anna Lee |

A group of savvy protestors from Porto Alegre, Brasil, have made a fun video clip drawing attention to their complaints.

Porto Alegre is home to Estádio Beira-Rio, a R$290 Million World Cup stadium that is not yet completed… like many of the public services in the area.

In this video, the joyful protesters draw attention to local construction that’s been on ‘indefinite pause’ due to World Cup strains; roads left unfinished, traffic problems and issues with public transport.

Twerking in abandoned construction sites and clapping through rush hour traffic, the (UN)Happy protestors use the Pharell Williams track ‘Happy’ to express their juxtaposing dancing displeasure.
