So I've told you about my experiences with McFly, the Skins cast and Kelly Rowland at T4 On The Beach, but now it's time to show you all the rest of my photos and sum up the day. A couple of my style icons Agyness Deyn and Alexa Chung both did their thing onstage at the event, Agyness looked fab (do you agree?) in her checked shirt, which seemed to be the item du jour for all of the men who were there, from McFly's Harry and Dougie to T4 presenters Steve Jones and Rick Edwards.
The 45,000 strong crowd loved Agyness and there was a roar when she took to the stage to sing with Five O'Clock Heroes – she also brought her man Albert Hammond Jr to keep her company! Alexa was rushing about backstage to present her links, but looked gorgeous in her mini with ankle boots. She was also rocking some wayfarers, like many people at the event including yours truly and the super-cool Carl Barat who performed with Dirty Pretty Things.
To hear a little more about the day and see many more photos of the celebs, including Scouting For Girls, Dev Hynes, Gladiators, Duffy, George Sampson, One Night Only and others, just
Alexa's fashion partner in crime Gok Wan was also there, and I spied him in the VIP bar watching Feeder perform "Buck Rogers". A little later Gok and friends took advantage of some transportation that was going unused backstage, staging a smile-filled mini photo shoot outside the press tent. The Ting Tings put on a great performance despite a little trouble with Katie's microphone cord, and "Shut Up And Let Me Go" was definitely a highlight of the afternoon. The boys in the crowd all perked up when Basshunter performed with a bunch of scantily clad female dancers, and the entire Basshunter crew got rather merry on the free booze backstage following the performance as the album went in at number one yesterday!
Speaking of the scantily clad, the press tent went rather quiet as four of the Gladiators came in wearing their costumes... one of whom the female faction went a little googly eyed over. Who knew ridiculous costumes could have that effect? At the same time Gemma Atkinson came in and the men also got a little googly eyed. She's really petite, seemed very down to earth and was so friendly to everybody backstage – another genuinely nice type, which was fab to see.
All in all it was an awesome day, and I can't wait for next year. Did any of you go or watch it go out live on TV? Let me know!
