I got a better reaction than Lauren Goodger from TOWIE

It’s important the parade continues – but safely

Have your say

I’m always delighted when people tell me they read this column.

‘You’re that Gobby Gibbs, the girl about town’ they’ll say.

So far it’s happened in a variety of places – my mortgage company, the dentist, a few shops and, last weekend, in my local Chinese takeaway.

Happily, they gave me a much larger portion than usual when I placed my order under my name and not my partners.

They even had The News opened up to this page when I arrived and the chefs looked very pleased to see somebody from the paper.

In contrast, imagine how poor TOWIE star Lauren Goodger felt when only 10 people showed up to her appearance at Debenham’s this week to promote her fake tan range. That’s got to hurt.
