Our man Jordan Cross spots DJ Lemon, Rowetta’s tweets and a killer pair of leggings at The Isle of Wight Festival.

Chattiest celeb has to go to Jordan from Rizzle Kicks who befriended The News watching The Stone Roses on Friday night - and then ripped up the Big Top an hour later.

Great to see Southsea DJ and It’s A Sin resident DJ Lemon going down a storm in the hip-hop karaoke tent with a crowd-pleasing performance of Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince’s Summertime.

Southsea’s Tansy Miriam ensured the area was well represented in the festival chic department with her killer Tetris leggings.

Nice that Bloc Party’s Matt Tong is a man of the people. He mixed it with the riff-raff as he queued up for his ticket with a can of Kronenburg 1664 on the opening day. Lead singer Kele Okereke popped into long-running Pompey retro night Hipshaker a couple of times, too.

Widley’s Ted Lavender is a kid with a bright future. After playing at Lily Allen’s wedding and the Notting Hill Carnival the Purbrook Park School student delivered a skanking and knowledgable Saturday afternoon display in Hipshaker.

Happy Mondays knew where to get their latest Isle of Wight updates. Backing singer Rowetta, of X Factor fame, was quick to retweet our pics of their barnstorming Thursday night set.
