CELEBRITIES ENJOY WIGHT WEEKEND

katynEXCLUSIVE: The Isle of Wight played host to a number of celebrities this weekend including one not-so-legendary rocker.

British singer-songwriter Katy B was spotted in Cowes on Friday in her luxury white Range Rover as she parked near to The Union Inn pub. She traveled over to the Island via Red Funnel’s Southampton to East Cowes route and was later spotted on Shanklin seafront on Saturday afternoon, among other places.

Escaping the fast-paced life of Brighton, DJ Fatboy Slim and his TV presenter wife Zoe Ball enjoyed a short break away with the family. They briefly visited Dinosaur Isle in Sandown and Blackgang Chine Adventure Park, where Fatboy, aka Norman Cooke, enjoyed a ride down the Plughole water slide.

Popping in for a spot of shopping, the happy couple also visited the rural Chale Green Stores. It is understood they were visiting friends in the area.

The near-identical man was spotted using the Shanklin Lift mid-morning and withdrawing cash from an ATM in the High Street at lunchtime.

IslandEcho investigated these claims, later finding the gentleman enjoying a tipple in the Shanklin Conservative Club with friends, where he was photographed with barman James Hilson.
