The V Festival is well underway in Hylands Park in Chelmsford and Weston Park in Stafford and the Very team have a prime spot at the heart of the action. It’s so exciting! TV Presenter Laura Whitmore (above) has already popped by for a gossip – she’s actually camping this weekend (brave girl!) She’s making the most of a weekend off from work and said she’s looking forward to a weekend in the UK as she’s been spending a lot of time in the States recently. She’s looking good despite the travelling though. I’m loving her shorts!
This is what our little spot in the VIP area looks like from the front:
Once you walk inside, there is a live game, where models behind the glass select a bubble containing a card. Some cards are winning cards and some aren’t – its pretty addictive. It’s also really stands out in the festival for being pink!
The acts on the line-up for the two day festival include Beyonce, Rita Ora, Jessie J, Katy B, The Kings of Leon and The Script – and they’ve all been wandering through the VIP area (officially called The Virgin Media Louder Lounge). and even though it’s just Day 1 of the festival, and I’ll have more goss tomorrow, I’ve got a bit of an update for you now.
From Very’s prime position in the VIP area I caught up with Pixie Lott, who had quite possibly the brightest pair of coloured shorts I’ve ever seen.
Pixie is celebrating as she’s just finished recording an album, which she will be releasing in January. She’s camping with her gorgeous model boyfriend Oliver Cheshire, but if I had him to cuddle up to, I woudn’t mind!
Talking of cuteness, the Union J boys and some of One Direction are at the festival and Union J have popped into our area. This is me with Jaymi.
Jaymi and George from the band asked if they could have some wellies from the Very area. Obviously, we let them have some – they were really polite! They’re not performing so they are on a completely free weekend and I saw them making the most of it. These guys like to dance and it doesn’t even matter what they’re dancing too – they’ve got a lot of energy.
Niall from One Direction, however, is having a different festival experience as it hard for him to move around without someone wanting an autograph. It must be tough being so well known! At least in the backstage area he can sort of let his hair down, but he has to have two burly bodyguards with him at all times. I wonder what will happen when Beyonce arrives – she is coming in by helicopter!
Keep coming back to the blog for more celerity gossip – I will have more updates on Sunday – including photos from Beyonce’s Saturday night set (I hope).
