Just a note to say how fantastic we thought Justin was on Saturday, hosting the Superdrug Starstruck charity event and to say thank you for making it such a brilliant evening for us and our guests. For a celebrity booking to not only do the job in hand but to seemingly actually enjoy himself AND then happily meet guests and have a laugh and a picture, was really and truly refreshing – Justin please don’t ever change from being such a nice down to earth and naturally funny man! Justin, you really deserve all of the accolades you are receiving and best of luck for now and certainly for a long and successful future.
I just wanted to forward on our thanks for what an amazing job Justin Lee Collins did on Saturday for us. He was truly amazing! The feedback we’ve had has been unbelievable and the audience just loved him. If you could pass on a huge thank you to him from us that would be fabulous.
On behalf of all of us at NABS, a huge thank you for your amazing performance at last week’s NABS Big Bash. I was deeply impressed not just by your professionalism, but also the way you truly engaged with the audience both on and off the stage. So many people have come up to say how brilliant you were. They are not a forgiving or easy audience, so it’s a praise well justified. It was also great of you to stay on and meet / greet the many fans that you have (many new ones). You are a fabulous entertainer and thanks to your hosting, the audience had a wonderful evening raising money for a good cause. I very much hope that we may be able to entice you back at some stage to do some more events for NABS and meanwhile thank you for all of us for your performance last Thursday.
