James Blunt performed a cracking set at the Hampton Court Palace Festival this week. I popped down to see him play and caught up with the main man after. Kelly Brook was in the audience enjoying a night out with girlfriends. James told me at the after party: “Where’s Kelly Brook? I heard she was in the crowd but she hasn’t come back here, damn it.” The star barely had time to party the night away – he was straight back on the road to continue his grueling European tour….
Josh Bray is fast becoming one of my favourite up and coming artists. His album Whisky and Wool is fabulously chilled with it’s folk style sound. Josh is about the start work on his new album and this week supported Matthew Morrison at Hammersmith Apollo. Chelsy Davy was whooping when Josh sang, Arlene Phillips looked engrossed and Matthew himself was impressed too. Check out www.joshbray.co.uk for more.
Trendy new band The Good Natured are flicking my switch big time. The new act have signed to Parlophone and will be a big priority later in the year. They’ve just been picked to headline BBC’s Introducing stage at Glastonbury on Saturday. There debut track Skeleton is ace. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for them!
Those lovely folks at Orange are offering festival goers at Glastonbury the chance to watch a top band side of the Pyramid stage at the festival next weekend. I’ll be there reporting from the muddy fields and hanging out with the celebrity crowds! Win your tickets at www.orange.co.uk/glastonbury from tomorrow!
Congratulations to hotel and club King Mark Fuller on the successful launch of his new Portugal hang out Embassy Beach. 90210 star Jessica Lowndes was the star of the extravaganza on Friday night. But not everything went according to plan – both Jessica and Mark missed their Easyjet flights and were forced to fly to Lisbon and travel bar car to Embassy! Jess told me: “We sang Grease and Rihanna all the way and I drove.”
Could Mollie King and David Gandy be preparing to move in together already? I hear the star was overheard in the Vintage Rose clothes shop in Richmond saying she was”house hunting in the area” with her boyfriend. Well that’s certainly moving along nicely isn’t it? I guess once you’ve snagged THE Dolce and Gabbana model you speed ahead.
The stars were out in full force to celebrate the launch of OMEGA Ladymatic this week. Jodie Kidd and model Olivia Inge were nattering in one corner, Matt Cardle made a somewhat rare appearance out and everybody’s favourite topless gardener Jesse Metcalfe was eyeing up the models. Fabulous.
