VIP Meet&Greet: Meet Olympian Louis Smith

We know you love reading about all your favourite celebs – but how would you like to meet them?

LLAVIP is bringing you a new feature to help you on your way to meeting celebrities. VIP Meet & Greet will give you all the latest tips and times on the whereabouts of your favourite celebrity VIPs and when they will be mingling with the public.


In 2010 from simply buying a comic book, I found myself in a room full of Hollywood celebrities (including celeb royalty Brad Pitt!). It was the Kick Ass European Film Premiere in Leicester Square and me and a friend had gotten free tickets as part of a giveaway: the first 75 people in the line to get their Kick Ass comic books signed by the comic book creators were given tickets to the premiere. Christopher Mintz-Plasse (McLovin’), Mark Strong and upcoming star Chloë Grace Moretz (Hit Girl) were just some of the stars we had the chance to meet.

When I began following LLAVIP earlier this year, I remember looking at founder Zoe Griffin’s fabulous posts and photos with envy, and wondering if there were any more offers and giveaways that I could use to get up close to celebrities myself – this is where VIP Meet & Greet comes in!


First up we have a few opportunities to meet Olympic silver medalist and Strictly Come Dancing Strictly winner Louis Smith. The Olympic gymnast will be signing his book ‘LOUIS’ at WHSmith at Selfridges in Manchester at 6pm this Wednesday (10th July), as well as at Waterstone’s book store at the Reading Oracle Shopping Centre at 12.30pm on Friday (12th July) and the Cribbs Causeway Waterstone’s store in Bristol at 4.30pm on the same date.

If you’re more interested in crafts than sports, there is also an opportunity to meet singer, model and television personality (and full time yummy mummy) Myleene Klass this week. Myleene will be signing her new book ‘Things to Make and Do With Your Children” and hosting an interactive crafts session at WHSmith in the Merry Hill Centre in Brierley Hill, West Midlands at 10am on Tuesday 9 July.


Finally, fans of a very pregnant ‘Pricey’ will have the chance to meet the glamour model superstar Katie Price this Friday in Greater London as she heads to Tesco supermarket in High Road, Goodmayes at 11am to launch her new fragrance ‘Kissable’. We wonder if she’ll be wearing her giant lips costume?


LLAVIP itself shot to popularity when Zoe’s unique footage of Leona Lewis being attacked at a book signing at Waterstones was picked up by news stations and broadcast across the country, so you never know what surprises you may encounter or where it may lead when mingling with celebs.


We want to hear about how you get on when following up out Meet & Greet feature – so if your VIP meetings are successful, or you find yourself in a unique or unexpected situation with a celeb, let us know! Tweet @zoegriffin with your pics or email
