Celebrity gamer to cut ribbon on UK's largest electronic games event
Southampton, 21st July 2008: Multiplay, organiser of M Festival - the UK's largest electronic games event, are pleased to announce that TV celebrity Gemma Atkinson is to officially open the event on Friday 8th August 2008 at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire.
Gemma's first acting role playing Lisa Hunter on Hollyoaks placed her in the public eye and she has been firmly there ever since. She was a popular character in Hollyoaks, playing Lisa for five years and proving her credentials as an actress covering topics of self-harm and bereavement. Due to her characters popularity Gemma continued with late night Hollyoaks show, Hollyoaks: in the City.
After leaving Hollyoaks behind Gemma showed fans a different side to her by appearing in ITV1's primetime show Soapstar Superstar and proving that she can sing as well as act. More recently Gemma became even more of a household name by taking part in ITV1's massively successful I'm a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here broadening her fanbase. Gemma also has a part in Brit-Flick 'Boogie Woogie' out in August, her 2009 calendar is out in September and she'll be playing 'Peter Pan' at the Royal Manchester Opera House in December.
Gemma is also an avid gamer in her spare time and is thrilled to be opening such an important milestone for the European gaming scene.

A site about games and game paraphernalia and how nothing's as good as we remember it, probably because we used to inhabit a FANTASY WORLD.
What are we half-heartedly skimming RIGHT NOW?
Each post .02% worse than the last.
THE HTML ERAS
When men used to till the pages by hand.
12 years of wheat and chaff in one vast and impenetrable mass.
Some updates weren't universally hated by the entire world within seconds of being uploaded.
Links to that blog of yours you started up and were excited about for a whole weekend.
Some people we might've MET. Or at least seen in a room and been near.
Other sites we are happy to officially endorse without requiring Adwords spend.
Having one is compulsory, apparently. Ours is here. It is not meant to be funny.
People off the internet. Quality and commitment levels may vary.
It came with the template. Maybe in 2014 we'll jump on board the Twitter train and put that in here. Or a radio. That'd be nice.
