Even though it has been the most hyped event we can remember, we have to say, we are excited about the upcoming Olympics!
After years of preparations since London won the Games in 2005, the Olympics is finally coming, officially starting tomorrow with the opening ceremony, which includes the entrance of the final torchbearer (we’re hoping for David Beckham!) who will light the great Olympic cauldron. The torch has been carried by 8,000 torchbearers across the country including Billy Mitchell in a live segment of Eastenders (brilliant!) and actor/comedian David Walliams – seen above.
As well as this, there is of course, a spectacular performance starring a cast of 15, 000 (including some familiar faces), entitled ‘Isle of Wonder’ and directed by Oscar winning Danny Boyle (director of Slumdog Millionaire, The Beach and Trainspotting).
Then there is the closing ceremony, which will feature performances by Blur and the Spice Girls and a celebration of British fashion with a catwalk showing the best of British design worn by true supermodels, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Lily Cole, this, we are very excited about.
What we love about it is the sense of occasion, this really is an event we will remember forever. Are you looking forward to the Olympics?
