Matthew Steeples visits the tenth annual Winter Wonderland in London’s Hyde Park (along with several desperate-to-still-be-famous one-time ‘celebrities’)
Last night in Hyde Park, Winter Wonderland opened for its tenth time in London.
Though less busy than in previous years, guests numbered such luminaries as Hyde Park Stables owner Basia Briggs, music and TV producer Simon Cowell and the Daily Mail’s Richard Kay. ‘Princess Tippytoes’ Anthea Turner was also spotted seeking out the cameras. She was plainly not despondent about her 2015 divorce from her fame hungry, bankrupt, £50 million debtor ex-husband Grant Bovey and delusionally beamed as if she was an A-lister. One photographer was overheard to remark: “Who the hell does she think she is? Mariah Carey’s body double?”
Elsewhere, after I was catapulted upside down over 100 feet into the air on a ride named ‘Air’, we retreated to a so-called VIP tent where Vanessa Feltz was stuffing her face with sausage baps. Though hardly in need of further sustenance, she was heard demanding: “Get me more!”
Winter Wonderland is open from 10am to 10pm daily until 2nd January 2017 excluding Christmas Day, when the site is closed. Entry is free.
