I’m going to the polo but I’ve got nothing to wear

Last year's Black Friday deals at Tesco, Fratton.

VERITY LUSH: Yet another example of distasteful American influence sweeping the UK

Have your say

What do you wear to a prestigious annual polo event where many of the guests will be arriving either by helicopter or stretch limo?

What does little ol’ me, Gobby Gibbs from Portsmouth, put on? That’s my dilemma this week and it’s causing me great concern.

Okay, so maybe I’m being a tad dramatic (very out of character, I know), but I’ve been invited to attend the annual Duke of Essex Polo Trophy, the most prestigious day out in the Essex calendar, and I have nothing suitable in my wardrobe.

Now guys, I know you won’t have a clue what I’m fretting about. But ladies, you’ll be on my side won’t you?

I’ve never even been to a polo event before, let alone such a celebrity-studded one. So quite frankly, I’m starting to ponder whether I’m punching above my weight with this one.

To top the nerves well and truly off, I’m filming the whole thing to launch the TV channel of We Are The City, a London website for big city women hot-shots that I’m fronting. I could so freak out right now.

Peter Andre, Alexandra Burke and a whole heap of other stars including members of Boyzone and Blue will be in attendance, as well as the whole cast from TOWIE (The Only Way Is Essex).

So yes, I’m really looking forward to it. And as it’s in Essex I’d better make sure I’m well and truly spray tanned and groomed.

Those Essex ladies know how to ‘work’ their best assets, so I’d best do my utmost to fit in!

I will know one friendly face there – Nicola Goodger from TOWIE is going and I’ve met her a few times. She’s lovely.

Nicola is classically gorgeous and her style is very ‘Kate Middleton’ rather than typically Essex, so I’m pretty confident she’ll upstage everyone.

I was in London this week with her and she towered over me because she’s surprisingly tall and lean.

Quite my opposite but hey, she might take pity on me and take me under her wing – which in my translation means she may well take me to the VIP champagne tent!

A girl can hope. Will keep you posted.
