Hi guys,

Good news, the first ever ‘Lily Allen and Friends’ is done and dusted and it went swimmingly I must say! Lily, dressed in a beautiful red number, announced to the audience she was 'nervous' but really pulled it out of the bag as the show went on.

The guests couldn’t have been more fun. Lily got cosy on the sofa with Peep show star David Mitchell and film megastar Cuba Gooding Jr, who took his top off for half the interview.

We were also treated to a performance and a half from Reverend and the Makers who wowed the audience and crew alike. Lead singer Jon is a true genius, he was walking round set strumming his guitar all day.

My favourite part of the show was the questions to the guests from our internet correspondents; Chris Crocker in particular. Funny guy. Oh and a certain miss Anne Robinson (who was filming The Weakest Link in the studio next door) gave Lily a little surprise by crashing our set. Very funny.

So it’s one episode down, seven episodes to go now. Please keep on sending in funny youtube clips you come across and also new band suggestions.

Tune in to the show on Tuesday at 10.30pm on BBC 3 to see what all the fuss is about.

Have a good rest of your weekend.

P.s Sorry I didn't post this earlier, it's been a nightmare getting back to my flat because of the fire in Camden last night. Thank goodness no one was hurt.

Is george lamb involved in the show in any way?

daily mail are pairing him and allen off as a 'mystery man' - but anyone who pays attention to pop culture would know who he is (not the daily mail obviously). I assumed he was involved in some way with the show.

The show was excellent. Lily looked so cute when she first came out. she was really shy, but she soon became comfortable and the show was a huge success. Well done Lily!. And the audience were not walking out. the only point where the audience began to walk out was when the winning band at the end were on (not saying who it was just in case). and that was only because they werent particularly good and the lead singer looked and sounded drunk! and also because it overran and obviously after standing up for 3 hours straight, it kills ya back n u wanna go home!!! we were NOT ungrateful!! It was a brilliant show and i am SOOO glad i went. (and glad im going again!!! hahaha)
Well Done Lily!! We Love you!

Didn't catch the show...were The Metros on it?

Instead of promoting bands who have already made it like the admittedly brilliant Blood Red Shoes, you could so easily promote the true underground of good British music. There are so many great unsigned bands crying out for a little publicity. Rieser, The Chiara L's, Dead World Leaders, Echolounge. If people had the opportunity to see/hear these amazing bands then they would blow up.

If this is all about the social network revolution then have some spine in booking bands who have made a name in social networks.

Watched the show
Really entertaining
Lily really did well it cant be easy.

The show needs The Runners

The show was awesome, why does it take the BBC this long to come up with great ideas?

Lily Allen rocks and her blatant honesty is what appeals to me most

enjoyed watching the show... look forward to seeing the rest.

As for You tube, my favourite things are the 'farting preacher', diet coke and mentos and thenarcoleptic dogs. All worth a look .
