We all sussed it ages ago and so we decided to risk it for a biscuit and attempt to go get tickets to Celeb Big Brother Entrance night…..
Abz will WIN!!! #TeamAbz!
Thank you to my man for supporting me. I love you.
Myself, Sian and Laura went through 60 hours of emotional rollercoaster. From the wait to see if we got tickets, to the aghhh the travel is a nightmare, to we HAVE to do this….. We found a way! We got there! The three of us, together again. We got there. We were fucking there!
After 3 hours travelling a million percent out of my comfort zone, determined and on a mission, I had panic attack at Paddington, a crazy tube journey with some nice old ladies trying to help me, almost missed my connection because they didn’t put up a platform until the last-minute and I couldn’t run because my stomach was pulsating……. I arrived in Sian Land.
Food. Giggles. Tunes. Polish. Check in.
Not that I saw much of it but I was staying in the Newark Hotel and the chap on reception was nice even if he did assume I was going to come in drunk after midnight. He couldn’t have been further from the truth. The bathroom was bigger than the bedroom – I liked it, it was sweet, just enough room. Why so many fire doors? I got lost in there.
Laura arrived after her 3 hour driving and it was mission a go go. Sian was an amazing Chauffeur. Thank you for getting us there safely. On the road, having a sing song and converting Sian’s mate. We soon arrived at the Elstree film and TV studios.
We made it, we were in the queue… Skipped over to get some food from the McDonalds. DO YOU WANT YOUR TOY? SMURF! We were given a ticket with a number on in the queue. I was 205. About 7pm they told us anyone over 220 wouldn’t be getting in. So, we thought they were saying we all would. Everyone thought it. Turned out, 10 minutes later that more priority and VIPs turned up than there was total space. Which meant………. Us lucky lot……………….. got sent home.
Why exactly did they send us tickets if they knew there was more priority than there was space? We didn’t know priority exsisted??? Why didn’t they tell us we were on stand by from the start? Why did they make out like we were in? I don’t understand.
The dude in front of us tried to ask his sources to get us in – that was overly nice of him. No luck. Some #5ivers were being ace face with their advice over twitter. Thank you #5ivers.
I have to be honest. I cried.
I couldn’t believe it. Beyond gutted and ready to collapse. I can’t tell you how much effort we put in to getting there and then BAM! We weren’t going to get in, any way. Would have loved to see his little face. The 3 of us had our Abz caps and banners.
I hope he was given an amazing send in!!!!!
We ran around to the front as Vicky tweeted she was on route. Thank you to her, I shouted her. She waved and blow US a kiss. She didn’t have to do that. We really appreciated it.
We tried getting into… what’s it called?; ‘Bit on the side’ show, but they weren’t having any of it. Oh Rylan did shout over the brushes when we were in the queue. The people waiting to go into that randomly starting singing ‘Keep on Movin’ so I started singing with them and shouted #TeamAbz baby!!
I can’t believe it. We tried absolutely everything in our powers. Except jumping fences or digging holes..
We were heartbroken to be quite honest. I then bawled my eyes out to Laura. Which was not cool and I am sorry. Because of rather pants emotions that I can’t go into, tiredness, guttedness, illness and shock, I couldn’t contemplate staying in hotel and the journey home. I sent a SOS to my sister, who drove 4 hours to pick me up. She IS amazing and I will never thank her enough for being there for me – ALWAYS! I checked out the hotel, the lady did ask her boss if I could get the money back but it’s in the Terms and Cons I couldn’t. I am so sorry to Sian and Laura for bailing, I couldn’t handle it. Those ladies put so much into the day and getting there. I can’t believe it. Well, I can believe it, but I can’t believe the way it was run. No logic at all. He better be smiling in there. He has to be smiling. Then we be happy.
Spent the night (well a few hours sleep) at my brothers then a family member drove me back to Oxford this morning. Took an hour or so. My family are crazy. I Love them so much.
Thank you to Sian and Laura. We were in it together and I flippin’ loved seeing you so soon. We tried, we really, really tried. Love you millions. Thank you for being in my life ladies. Truely, Thank you.
WE LOVE YOU ABZ! We did it for you man. Stay safe in there. I’m sorry, I hope we didn’t let you down… #TeamAbz
*exhaustion and tears*
Now I’m off to shave my hair in protest……………………
EDIT; Saturday 24th August – just got the ‘priority tickets’ that we got told we’d get as compensation. It’s for one of the evictions. On them it says you have to be there 45 – 60 minutes before the show. There were people turning up with ‘priority’ less than half hour before….. Yeah… Ok. I did bring myself to watch in the end and I’m super happy he saw Vicky before he went in. Thank goodness.
