A night before Christmas

As we move towards Christmas, like everyone else we begin to wonder; "When will another '28 Days Later' rip-off be released?"

Well our prayers were answered last night by Will Smith and some of his A-list friends at the London premiere of "I Am Legend".

Fans braved sub-zero temperatures to catch a glimpse of their favourite stars on the red carpet at the Odeon Leicester Square in London, and once Big Willie had warmed up the crowd and made his way inside, the real fun started.

Hope, of X Factor fame, were first to make their way down the carpet. Rumour has it that they were involved in an explosion at Topshop but they couldn't pull out of the event and let down their loyal fans.

Next was everyone's favourite black ex-member of Blue, Simon Webbe! Sporting a fabulous new asymmetrical hair do and thick latex gloves, it was as if he was preparing to battle the god of pop for his deserved place in musical history.

It was well below -30 degrees now but the crowd were holding out as they'd heard some classical singers at the pinnacle of their careers were soon to arrive.

They weren't wrong — next up the carpet was Jon Ansell who used to be in G4. Don't be fooled by the cute face, Jon tore apart G4 after he became addicted crystal meth and decided they needed to take on a new industrial grindcore sound.

Finally, another X Factor hopeful in the form of Alisha. No, not the one who likes happy slapping. No, not the one with the blonde quiff. She was the one who could sing quite well but was chucked out before the Children of the Corn (Same Difference).

This is probably the last celebrity event of the year but we can console ourselves with the knowledge that as we celebrate Christmas with our nearest and dearest, Jodie Marsh will be sitting alone in a cold bedsit wondering what went wrong.

Merry Christmas one and all!
