The party was held in celebration of the hip and fun young brands new collaboration with Ibiza icon Cathy Guetta (wife of David), a collection of new watches called F**k Me I’m Famous which embody the élan and Ibiza-party spirit – for which Cathy with her club nights at the legendary club Pacha are renowned – and also the launch of Ice-Clocks and Ice-Phones. Held in the stunning Aqua Neuva in the West End, which rooftop terrace, filled to bursting due to the unseasonably warm weather we are enjoying, provided spectacular views over the city for the fashionable crowd of young Londoner’s and celebrities in attendance (sightings included Jay Camilleri and Jessie B of E4’s Dirty Sexy Things fame), signature cocktails, wine and beer flowed freely with a steady supply of delicious canapés from the kitchen.

The party was a fun-filled affair with a massive turn-out and felt like an early start to summer, fitting given that the F**k Me I’m Famous range is a celebration of that summer party spirit for which Ibiza is renowned. Following speeches from the ebullient Ice Watch CEO Jean-Pierre Lutgen, and the beautiful Cathy Guetta discussing her line in a delightfully sexy French accent, the crowd was treated to a brilliant live performance from upcoming singing sensation Esmee Denters. To top it all off was an appearance from boy band McFly whose current sell-out Keep Calm And Play Louder tour is sponsored by Ice Watch, and an exclusive DJ set from band member Danny Jones that had the crowd dancing late into the night.

Keeping calm was never an option for the screaming fans who packed out the theatre to welcome Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones, Dougie Poynter and Harry Judd back to town.

But the boys did play louder and harder than ever before.

A shout out first, though, for Chelmsford powerpop punk band The Hype Theory who got the audience pumped and were treated like headliners instead of show openers and rightly so.

Support act Ivyrise were good too, their cover of Adele’s Set Fire To the Rain went down a storm.

This was McFly’s night though.

Formed in 2004, their debut album, Room On The 3rd Floor, hit the charts at number one; earning them a place in the Guinness Book of Records as the youngest band to do so – a title taken from The Beatles.

Since then they’ve gone on to release three successful studio albums, Wonderland, Motion in the Ocean, Radio:Active and a greatest hits album.

They have clocked up 18 consecutive top 20 singles, seven of which reached number one in the UK singles chart and scooped a Brit Award for Best Pop Act.

Fifth studio album Above The Noise was released to huge acclaim, spawning one of the band’s biggest singles.

After the audience – mostly females, mostly young, all screaming – performed an impromptu group performance of YMCA, the boys came on all guns blazing and never stopped.

Neither did the yells of we love you. My ears are still ringing.

A shout out to the parents, mainly dads, too; beer in one hand, surfing the net on their phones with the other trying to ignore their daughters’ hormonally charged cries.

The boys are great live performers; belting out old hits, giving fans a sneak peek at tracks from their forthcoming sixth studio album and performing a crowd-pleasing mash-up of tracks by One Direction, Rhianna, Busted, Bon Jovi, Goyte and Whitney Houston.

They had great banter with the audience and each other; some celebrity reality show chit chat by king of the jungle Dougie and king of the dancefloor Harry diverting into talk about bottoms.

It’s clear to see why, eight years on, they’re still rocking sold out venues.

The five-piece band has beaten hundreds of other emerging bands to win the chance to be McFly’s support act at their April 3 gig at the University of East Anglia’s LCR.

For Lost? bass player Rob Allison it will be a case of deja-vu, because the 24-year-old from Newton Flotman was almost picked to be part of McFly and auditioned with McFly members Tom Fletcher and Harry Judd about nine years ago.

Rob said it was his McFly audition which led him to him becoming serious about a music career.

He said: “At the time I wasn’t really taking music very seriously, it was more of hobby, but having had that experience it made me start taking things more seriously.

“To support McFly is just crazy, it is like everything has come full circle.

“I’m really excited, really buzzing about it. I can’t wait.”

Rob’s fellow bandmates are equally excited about supporting McFly, whose hits include Baby’s Coming Back, Star Girl and All About You.

The 1,700-strong crowd they will be performing in front of will also be Lost?’s biggest audience to date.

As well as Rob, the band includes singer and guitarist Peter Bilton, 25, from Long Stratton, guitarist Nathan Stimpson, 21, from Pakefield, drummer Roger Bilton, 28, from Trafford Road in Norwich, and keyboard player Ashley Hannan, 19, from Wymondham.

They describe their music as “thrilling pop rock” and since they formed in 2009 they have toured the UK and America.

Peter explained they were picked to support McFly after they submitted a video on the McFly Super City website and fans were asked to vote for which bands they would like to be support acts on the McFly tour.

Twenty-six bands were then picked to support McFly – one for each of the nights on their Keep Calm And Play Louder Tour.

“Over 1,000 bands entered and we were in the top 10 – we were number eight,” he said.

“McFly were given a list of the top 50 to choose for support acts.

“We found out at the end of January and were pretty ecstatic. It is quite a big deal for us. The first gigs all of us saw were at the UEA so to get the chance to perform there is great.

“It is incredible. McFly are such a successful band and it is like a seal of approval from the band themselves to be picked by them.

“It is a huge opportunity and it is great of McFly to give bands this opportunity.

“We are just in the process of working out the set we are going to play.”
