Celebrity Stalker... Oops!

I've been pretty busy recently and it feels like I haven't written a post in ages - sorry about that! So for this post I thought I'd take inspiration from what I've been up to these past few months and I realised that most of my recent experiences seemed to involve celebrities. When, I was younger I was always so amazed by people that met celebrities; I was always wondering 'WOW, how is it possible?' but in the past 9 months I've accomplished quite a lot! Over 2014 and 2015 I've met: Nicole Scherzinger, Zoe Sugg (Zoella), James Bourne, Harry Judd, Danny Jones, Dougie Poynter, Tom Fletcher (Twice!), Alfie Deyes (PointlessBlog), Emily Canham (imhereforever), Jake Boys, George Sear, Richard Wisker, Shannon Flynn and Bobby Lockwood. I think that's quite an achievement!
So for today's post I thought I'd give you my top tips for meeting celebrities:
  • Make sure you follow the people you want to meet on twitter AND have their notifications turned on. This means you get notified as soon as they tweet meaning you get first access to anything they tweet about.
  • If it's an actor you're after, look out for upcoming film premieres as they're such a great way to interact with celebrities and they're free! I stay up to date by following @UKfilmredcarpet on twitter (or if you don't have Twitter their instagram is 'whatsontheredcarpet' ).
  • Book signings are also a cheap, fun way to meet your idol - usually you only have to pay the price of the book so you're effectively meeting the author for free, how cool is that? That's how I met Zoella and PointlessBlog so it definitely works!
  • Radio stations are good places to meet artists as unless the artist has drawn attention to the event, no one knows that they're going! The best way to find out about these appearances is to keep a close eye on the radio station's social media or just listening to the radio can help too!The only downside to this method is that some interviews are pre-recorded, so try not to get your hopes up too much.
  • Finally, just keep your eyes peeled! London is a great place to go celeb-spotting because its such a tourist attraction that even celebrities want to look around. Also, most record label/management companies are based in London and many celebrities are asked to visit for meetings etc. Or, if you're really lucky, the person you want to meet might live in London! For example, my friends were getting on the tube in Wembley and bumped into Caspar Lee - you never know who you're going to see!
That's all the tips I can think of at the moment but if I think of any more I'll tweet them so follow my twitter (@charlyblogs) to keep updated. Also if you have any good tips, leave them in the comments below or tweet me!
See you soon,
