I had thought my days of nightclubbing were well and truly over.
My killer stilettos had been replaced by fluffy slippers and I’d swopped pina coladas for mugs of cocoa and being in bed by 10pm.
But now I’ve received a surprise invite from Liquid & Envy nightclub to come down and meet Joey Essex from the TV reality show The Only Way is Essex.
Now I’m not sure about this.
I confided my misgivings to my girlie pal Lulu, who replied: ‘I’m sure he can handle a couple of us experienced older birds’.
So to enter into the spirit of all things Essex, I’ve got the fake tan and glammed up my hair.
But does anyone know where I put those white stilettos?
