Mel & Sue recording. (With me in the audience and on set.)

Last Thursday I met Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins. I went to see their show being recorded live and it all started, well, quite terribly, with me being given some bad news when I arrived at the studio's venue. Julie was there (my friend from Twitter) and we met, which was lovely, but I was on a bit of a low point after the shocking news of not getting in for Thursday's show.

When I came back upstairs (in the shopping centre, where the studio is) Julie met me again and we waited around for Mel & Sue to come out of the studio. I then, thankfully met Sue, and she remembered me from all those years ago (just over 4 years), and we had a brief chat, and I got an autograph and a picture.

This piece of writing refers to the pic of me and Sue, which I show below in a collage! ---> A picture says 1000 words. And I reckon this one does say it all. Sue's pointing at me like 'I'm here with Supersizer1.', but she's just thinking that.

It was a massive turn-around when Sue said to me "Did you enjoy the show?" and I said "I didn't see it.", she wasn't pleased about that, and after hearing what my companion had to say about it, and what Julie had to say, she spoke to a woman who works at that studio, and Sue got me in!!! I was lead away by another woman who got me to get a wristband put on me, and then I was told to go "Over there.". I then sat down and tweeted about meeting Sue, before my phone's battery died. 

It was all up from there. No down, depressed moments, at all. 

We waited for 1hr and a half, perhaps more before seeing the recording, and I got sat on the left of the studio. I could see the two sofas, and the walls quite well, but because of the cameras, my vision of the kitchen area was poor. The recording lasted for a good two hours, and I was feeling sick at one point, so a kind lady got me a free water (well, she asked someone else to get it). I think it was a mix of the hot studio lights, me feeling tired and also all the cheering, which has hurt my throat quite a bit.

When the recording was finished, I went over to Sue (who I saw briefly earlier, while we were waiting to go into the studio), and I said I'd have to get my 3DS, so that I could get a pic of me with Mel and Sue. I went as quick as I could to my bag, and got it out. I came back over, got Mel's autograph and Mel commented on my pink scarf, which was funny! I then got my companion to take the pic of us, which came out pretty good. I love the girl photo-bombing in between me and Sue!

I did a little collage! Hope you like it!
(Below is something I wrote about the above picture, of me with Sue and Mel.)

I don't know about you, but I want to quote this song/these lyrics here:
Clowns to the left of me,
Jokers to the right,
Here I am,
Stuck in the middle with you.

Right at the end, I asked Sue for a hug, after Mel had walked over to some other people to talk to them. I said "Can I have a hug?", she said "Of course!". It was lovely. She was so sweet and made me feel special, and cheered me up, after the day's initial disappointment. 

Also, before going home, me and my companion asked if I could go back on set and take a few pics. 

So... here's a few for you. 

The famous window! (A sweet sunset.) 

When I watched Mel & Sue on Friday!

Thank you for reading this. And thank you to Sue, Julie and Mel, for a day I'll never forget. Also, thank you to the kind staff/crew for being so accommodating.

I hope you enjoyed this blog post. Please comment below or tweet me your thoughts on this post. 

Lots of love, Ss1. xxx

Going to see Mel & Sue tomorrow!

Tomorrow I am going to see Mel & Sue, at ITV Studios. I will be in the audience. I am so excited! I have told Giles and Howard (of Bake Off fame) about it, and I am happy that both have been lovely about it. It is going to be one hell of a day!

Alan Davies and Ken Hom are the guests, and I am going with my companion and also meeting a lady from Twitter too!

I will let you all know how I get on tomorrow. Pics, gossip, fun stuff, food and all!

Bye for now,
