Tess Jarvis's rules for life have always been somewhat relaxed...
1.Never go to bed before your last guest has left. Tess and Gina's flat has a Jacuzzi so it's the obvious location for a party... every night.
2.Make great friends and keep them close. Thought not actually in your bed. Tess and Jim's claims that they are 'just good friends' has everyone's eyes rolling.
3.Look on the bright side of life. After all it could be so much worse. Tess's job reviewing the nation's catastrophes proves this every day.
4.Don't wait for the weekend to wear your fancy knickers. Although be warned, this can lead to all manner of messes...
Tess has always been one to wing it but she's fast realizing that her bank of blag is running out of funds. At twenty-eight, is it time to grow up?
Maybe having a baby with your best friend isn't the best way to start...
Katy Regan worked at nineteen magazine for two years before joining Marie Claire UK in 2002. Highlights in that position included spending ten days in the buff on a nudist resort and becoming a footballer's wife for a week- all in the name of investigative journalism.
In 2004 at the height of her career as the office roving reporter singleton, she fell accidently pregnant by her best mate (who just remained a friend).
Katy's editor then commissioned her to write a column, 'And then there were three', which proved so successful it rang for two years and inspired many a reader to write in to Katy with their life story. She has now taken her loyal following to her blog, 'The state she's in', on the Marie Claire UK website. She lives in south London and shares care of her son Fergus with his dad, who lives across the road.
