Life in 3D: Laura Whitmore Talks Katy Perry And I’m A Celeb

In her second column for, Laura tells us about her trip to the London premier of Katy Perry's Part of Me and why she can't wait to get back to Oz to film the latest series of I'm A Celeb, Get Me Out of Here. Oh, and there's a certain torch she'd hoping not to drop...


It’s all about 3D these days. God forbid we went to the cinema and watched our favourite Hollywood stars in all their flat 2D faced glory… That’s so last decade! 

Katy Perry is the latest megastar to jump upon the big bucks bandwagon. Following in the footsteps of the Jonas Brothers and Justin Bieber, Katy hit the red carpet on Wednesday for the European premiere in Leicester Square and of course sure it would be rude if I didn’t pop down to see what all the fuss was about.

Turns out, it was much more personal than I thought. My friend who was sitting beside me was a blubbering mess (I won’t name and shame HIM!) It’s weird. I remember I first met Katy when she played her first ever London gig at Water Rats, a pub in Kings Cross just before ‘I Kissed a Girl’ was released. Boy, has her world changed since then!  

I also bumped into my old jungle pal Russell Kane at the premiere (I’m sure his hair is getting bigger every time I see him). I’m sad that we won’t be working together on the next series of I’m A Celeb, Get Me Out of Here now but am so excited to get back to Oz and work on the show. Last year, myself and Russ had a daily style diary, so not sure who else will agree to take their clothes off for the sake of Twitter fun! 

On the set of I’m A Celeb…can you spot Russell? 

Oh and this Sunday, I’m running with the Olympic torch in Huntingdon just outside London!  Can’t wait… But I’m nervous as hell that I’m going to drop it, or fall over, or possibly do both. 

Be Lucky!
