Olympic diver Tom Daley was a guest at Tiger Tiger’s New Year’s Eve party along with some other celebrities and DJs including Aled Haydn Jones , Hugo from Made in Chelsea and Sophie Anderton. (all the big stars come to Cardiff you know!) o_0
But things didn’t seem to goto plan when Tom criticised Cardiff’s nightlife on Twitter saying that it was a let down. This is how it played out on social media including Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
Early on in the evening Tom had taken a photo of himself all dressed up to go out and have it large in Cardiff and posted it on Instagram.
Early on he tweeted to Aled Haydn Jones to “have fun DJing” in the nightclub and it looked like everyone was having fun.
On one photo Tom posed with some earphones on his head so he may have even jumped on himself to spin a few tunes!
A full set of photos taken throughout the night at Tiger Tiger show everyone having a great New Year’s Eve party over at the Tiger Tiger Facebook page.
Then at 01:45am on New Years Day Tom tweeted to say,
“Cardiff…what a let down for new year.” And then exclaimed that
“everything shuts at 1!”
It’s not entirely sure why Tom left Tiger Tiger but staff tweeted him to say they were open til 4am as were many establishments throughout the City.
This then begs the questions who was Tom with (local Cardiff people or an entourage?) and where did they try to take him?
Most of the pubs probably did close about 1am but all the nightclubs were open much later and i’m sure he’d have no problem getting into any of them!
Tom then criticised the capital, saying that he’s
“definitely not going to go to Cardiff for new year again” adding that,
“people say it’s a good night out…I can’t assure you it isn’t.”
Whereas another of the ‘celebs’ tweeted to say how much they enjoyed the Cardiff experience!
Then began the reaction from everyone else on Twitter to Tom’s criticism of a night out in Cardiff:-
Just after 12:00 midday on New Year’s Day Tom removed his comments about Cardiff from his Twitter feed and instead wished everyone a Happy New Year! RESULT!?
PS the biggest question I have to ask about this whole episode is why do these nightclubs pay large amounts of money for these so-called celebrities to appear at their venues? Does it really attract anyone that wasn’t already going there in the first place?
Happy New Year everyone!
