It has been a seriously celebrity-packed weekend in Chelmsford for the V Festival. It started on a high with one of the first visitors to our Very.co.uk tent in the backstage area being the fabulously stylish Laura Whitmore (see Saturday’s blog post) and its got even better. Cara Delevigne, the hottest model of the moment, has been hanging out in the VIP Louder Lounger area before she waits for her friend and wifey Rita Ora to perform on Sunday afternoon. At festivals, it’s all about the accessories and I did like Cara’s baseball cap!
I’m a Celebrity contestant turned TV presenter Stacey Solomon has played some games in our Very tent – she is a lot of fun to hang out with in real life. Check out her in front of our live model machine game. Those white wellies are so cool, aren’t they?
In the backstage area, you just bump into celebrities chilling out all the time, and I was able to grab Alexandra Burke before she tucked into a massive cake. The girl does eat! The celebrities are given tokens that entitle them to lunch, dinner, drinks and treats and it seems Ms Burke likes the treats!
I asked Alex what her highlight was and she told me she was able to watch Beyonce from the side of the stage. I’m jealous! However, I cannot complain as I got to see her from the main area, where the crowd were loving her. It’s pretty special to be among a HUGE crowd and everyone is dancing and singing to the Beyonce lyrics. She stared with her song Girls, rocking a white bodysuit
And as the set progressed, she really started shaking her new bob. She had about 10 outfit changes! Some were wild, and some I think I could get away with. Those white trousers are fab!
I also caught up with Amelle Berrabah from The Sugababes, chilling in the bath after a long day of festival action. Yes, really:
I love this photo as it shows Amelle is really up for a laugh. But she is a hard worker as she is working on some new solo material. She’s got enough material for a solo album and is currently selecting the best. What does she think to ex Sugababe band members Mutya, Siobhan and Keisha reforming as MKS? She’s so not bothered…she has her own stuff to do.
From our spot in the Very area, we’ve also got a bit of love life goss for you as it seems David Gandy is back with his ex girlfriend Samantha Barks. There were rumours that he ditched her but they look pretty together in this photo:
All of The Saturdays are here, model Jordan Dunn, Lucy Spraggan, Katy B, Lawson, McFly and Five…while Rita Ora, Calvin Harris, Rudimental and Kings of Leon are the kety acts. V is the place to be this year! It’s been great covering it with Very.co.uk and I’ve got some longer one on one interviews that I will publish on this blog very soon. If you like music and you like celebs, be sure to come back here for a V festival update.
