Superstars and Superfans: Paul Burrell is now as Royal as Princess Diana
PAUL Burrell is plugging his TLC show Superstars and Superfans.
From the makers of Sky1’s Pineapple Dance Studios, Superstars and Superfans follows the lives of some of the UK’s most dedicated and obsessed celebrity fans, providing a glimpse into the eccentric world of these real-life celebrity devotees, while also delving deep into the lives of the celebrities over whom the superfans obsess. What happens when their worlds collide?
This series we meet superfans including Jax who has an obsession with Shane Lynch from Boyzone and has an ‘Aladdin’s cave’ dedicated to all things Shane Lynch, she even has her very own personal fantasy world – “Lynch Land” where she meets Shane and plays out their would-be life together, Victoria whose obsession revolves around Westlife, she has created her very own Westlife ‘hall of fame’ in her hallway, dubbed the Westlife Passage with pictures of her favourite stars, and Theresa whose obsession with Rod Stewart has seen her attend over 150 of his concerts and keeps a momentum of each one in her ‘Rod Room.’
The former Royal butler is not one of the obsessives. He’s one of the obsessed on. Yeah, really. On Sky News, Burrell plugs the show:
Eamonn Holmes: “Are there any Royal fans”
Paul Burrell: “It’s not about me”
EH: “I’m not talking about you. I’m talking about Diana”
