Ex-Hollyoaks actress grabs a lift in Konnie Huq’s chauffeur driven limo
Ex-Hollyoaks actress Ali Bastian is about to take part in the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, but it’s fair to say she won’t be able to count on Konnie Huq’s vote. The cheeky blonde ruffled the former Blue Peter presenter’s feathers when she hopped into a limo reserved for Konnie over the weekend.
Both celebrities were attending the Bittersweet Garden Party at the Soho Sanctum Hotel and enjoyed an evening knocking back the free cocktails when the incident occurred. An organiser for the event explained that a chauffeur driven limo was booked for every celebrity attending. The limos rides were scheduled to a “strict running order” which The Bill actress seemed to blatantly disregard. Those who saw the diminutive presenter’s reaction said she “didn’t look best pleased.”
Other well known names who attended the event included another Blue Peter presenter, Zoe Salmon, Pussycat Doll singer Kimberley Wyatt and DJ Ironik.
Ali Bastian was revealed last week as one of the celebrity contestants on the hit BBC One Show Strictly Come Dancing. She will be partnered by professional dancer Brian Fortuna, an American dancer and choreographer whose speciality dance is Latin. The new series is due to hit our screens from September 18th. Other celebrities appearing on the show this year include Welsh boxer Joe Calzaghe, Eastender’s actress Natalie Cassidy and ex-Rolling Stones wife, Jo Wood.
