Guess Where I Went Yesterday!

Can you guess what it is yet?


There was pretty lighting......


 ..... there was a (former?) children's tv presenter.....



...... and a panel of judges..... 


 ..... one of them was Christopher Biggins!!!

 
 (more about the cutey in the pink vest later)




Yes, it was Dancing On Ice! At the Nottingham Capital FM Arena, where the loos are Not As Good As Westfield's. And the capuccino's a bit rubbish too.



 Look. Famous people!










  ....famous people being waved at, in an out-of-focus way


 ... famous people facing The Wrong Way


 ..... And Vanilla Ice! He'd taught his partner to rap, graffitti and buy cars off eBay.


Unfortunately he decided to jump up on a ramp and do some cringey rapping mid-act. Nevermind...



The bloke off Radio 1. They were doing something involving the Dreaded Line Dancing


The lovely Johnson Beharry. VC.


 And Chloe Madeley. Upside down. Her mum was in, apparently. Well, anyway some woman shouted "Come on Chloe"

 Some bloke off EastEnders. Who's been winning. A lot.



And afterwards, in a disorganised bunfight-in-the-carpark-kind-of-affair...





...... we saw the top of Vanilla Ice's head. Look at the woman in the purple jumper, then look at her cuff. He's there.



Karen was a sweetie - she spoke to my son as he was milling about shyly, ducking behind people.

And Colin man-in-pink-vest, a 25 year old Canadian pro dancer, spent AGES chatting to people. He's a darling. He was alarmingly stage-made-up-fake-tanned. I told him he made us feel a bit pale.

Why on earth..?

Because I refused to take my razzmatazz-obsessed son to the PopXIdolFactor circus, so this spangled, z-list-celeb-infested thing was the compromise. And anyway, Vanilla Ice is The Man. So they say...

Lor' I'm not sure the Iceman is still the Schnizzle. Still it looks like a good time was had by all. Except me. I was elsewhere, doing a series of terrible tasks.

Probably.

I now admit, in retrospect, it was the influence of too many easter eggs that made it seem like a good idea.

I chiefly went with the idea of carrying out a one-woman protest against the very existence of chloe madeley, but wimped out. still, does not clapping her performance count, a bit like not standing up for princess margaret???

Biggins is still around!?! Looks like a lot of fun :-)

Hello Thrifted - we did try to get rid of him once; we sent him over your way, in the jungle. trouble is he had a film crew, and an itv programme - which he won. and so we still have him, bless his sequinned little soul ;)
