Well, I got home after Ally Pally and thought - 'That's it then'. But it wasn't, I then got an email about the upcoming 'Never Mind The Buzzcocks' which Alice was due to host IN ABOUT 2 DAYS, saying that they were looking for avid fans to be in the audience.....say no more, I emailed, texted and called everybody I could think of, and managed to snag a place in the audience!!
I waited outside the TV centre in Wood Lane for a while, and then met up with some other fans inc Steven Crayn, who had just hotfooted it back from the Glasgow Halloween gig in time for the show........we got taken in before the usual crowd, spent a while in the bar, and then we were led thru the bowels of the BBC (hi Andy!) to reserved seats near the front of the Buzzcocks studio. Phil Jupitus and Noel Fielding came on and did a sort of warm up and then - loud bang, lots of smoke and Alice appeared to host the show! It was 2 hours of filming fun for us, including snakes and lookalikes and Alice's usual brilliant sense of humour. They wouldn't let us take any photos, which was a shame, and I was really hoping we'd get to meet up with him afterwards but it wasn't to be - I think if we'd just called out to him, he would've come over.......but we didn't...........next time, huh. But it was still a great night and and added bonus for me to round off a great couple of Alice weeks.
