  Ellie's insider report from the Brits
Updated 18 February 2004, 16.50
Ellie reporting at the Brits
Ellie gives us the goss from the red carpet at the Brits.

"Reporting from the red carpet is such fun, but it's always hard work and a real scrum.

There are loads of journalists all fighting to get the stars to talk to them, and the celebs end up repeating the same answers about 20 times for all the different interviews.

You have to be quite pushy, but luckily some of the popstars, like Busted, recognise us lot from Newsround and Newsround Showbiz and are happy to come over.

I got to talk to loads of people which was great fun. The people I particularly liked were Jamelia, who was a real sweetie, and Alicia Keys, who was so polite and friendly, and really pretty.

I was expecting to be a bit intimidated by 50 Cent - but he was so mild-mannered and nice - almost shy! He looked great in his suit. Busted, as always, were really friendly and I'm so pleased they did well.


Doing the live report into the programme was a bit nerve-wracking, just because I'm always worried I'll have a total blank and forget everything I was going to say. I think I came across a bit over-excited, but it went fine.

I was gutted we couldn't go into the ceremony or any of the parties afterward - I could've got some even better gossip for you! But it was great to be there and actually see all those famous people in the flesh. It's weird, but honestly they are just like you and me!"
