Spotted: Mel Giedroyc
Where: Comedy Theatre, watching Birdsong
The lovely presenter of The Great British Bake Off was at the theatre on Monday night, watching Birdsong.
I spotted Mel in the queue for the always-confusing ladies at the Comedy Theatre (queues to left and right? Blind corners with more loos hiding behind them? Mirrors that make you look like death? They're all in there...)
Mel was looking punkier than her British Bake Off image, with spikier hair, and maybe sporting some leopard print?
Last time I saw her in a theatre, she was giving an absolutely stunning performance in EUROBEAT: Almost Eurovision! at the Novello Theatre. She was brrrrilliant.
Birdsong was less good. Much longer, far fewer laughs(!), and left me strangely lacking in emotion, despite being about one of the saddest things in the world: trench warfare and WWI. Read my Birdsong review here on londonist.
