On 30 November, Foxy Bingo opened the doors to the ‘Love Lodge’; a cosy, festive hide away in London’s trendy Soho streets. Ten celebrities escaped the cold weather and joined the party, offering their best advice on love, dating & festive traditions!
The mix of hunks and hotties enjoying a Christmassy cocktail included Chloe Lewis, Bobby Norris and James ‘Diags’ from team TOWIE, Love Island’s Kady McDermott and Scott Thomas, Chelsea boy, Hugo Taylor, Big Brother housemates Jeremy McConnell, Helen Wood and Lillie Lexi Gregg and 90’s boy-band legend, Anthony Costa.
The night began in true festive style with present opening for everyone, festive classics sung by the resident Love Lodge singers and, of course, a warming cocktail or two before the dating ‘dos and don’ts’ were offered up for singletons and couples alike.
Having revealed that he wanted to find Danny Dyer under the mistletoe this Christmas, Bobby Norris from TOWIE added, QUOTE: “I think I’ve got a bit of a crush on Foxy to be honest, I’ve had to get a cheeky selfie and a snapchat!”
TOWIE’s Chloe Lewis top tip for love was simply: “Just be yourself! If someone doesn’t love you for who you are then don’t chase it.”
When asked about his Christmas crush, model, Jeremy McConnell commented on his fellow Love Lodge attendee: “Lillie Lexi Gregg is really stunning, I kind of have a crush on her actually. I’m done with love for the moment, but there are always friends..!”
Love Island’s Kady McDermott was looking forward to making her own fun, “I said to Scott I want to make a gingerbread house, I’ve never made one before! I’m looking forward to doing the basics, the normal things that couples do, as it’s our first Christmas together.”
Offering his top dating tips, Scott Thomas said, “I think people are quote dubious about sending that soppy text message, but I’d say just send it! It’s the time of year where it will be best received, it’s Christmas time!”
Fashion designer Lillie Lexi Gregg was quick to talk about her new man: “My ideal person to kiss under the mistletoe would be my boyfriend Josh McEachran, I’m hoping to find a French Bulldog under the Christmas Tree! My boyfriend already has one so we need to get another one to keep him company!”
James ‘Diags’ also had something to say about his mate Foxy: “Me and Foxy go way back, we were on the Love Boat together years ago, we’ve always had a bit of a spark, a bit of chemistry, it’s really nice to see him again!”
