It was fun. But I’m glad I didn’t pay the full price of my ticket – which says it was worth over £100. Elton John’s New Year’s Eve concert at the O2 was good – and he himself was excellent – but the support acts were fairly poor and the much vaunted Alex from X Factor sang only one song, as did Will Young. I did, however, get to meet Kate Thornton, which was fairly exciting, though failed to get a photo of the two of us together. Instead, we have to be happy with one taken from my seat of her getting her make up applied, just before she did a piece to camera.
