Diversity, Kira Kosarin and Professor Green perform at Slimefest UK in Blackpool to kick off half term fun at Pleasure Beach

Blackpool has been basking in sunshine but at Blackpool Pleasure Beach young thrill-seekers were showered in slime as Nickelodeon's Slimefest returned bringing a star line up and some gooey fun to the half term.

The sell-out three day event saw thousands of youngsters descend on the theme park Arena to see their favourite performers from Professor Green, Raye, Diversity to mega USA children's TV star Kira Kosarin and X Factor Celebrity duo Max and Harvey.


The event also welcomed a host of TV stars to enjoy proceedings with their families including Blackpool born Lucy Fallon and co-stars Alan Halsall, Samia Longchambon and Ellie Leach.

Model and former Celebrity Big Brother star Danielle Lloyd also graced the orange carpet in attendance with her sons Archie, nine, Harry, eight and five-year-old George.

Lucy said: "It is my first Slimefest - I'm bringing my family with me, it's going to be fun."

Jordan and Perri of Diversity fame were once again hosts of the show, turning up the ante with a remarkable opening alongside fellow Diversity members, while giving the crowds an extra slimey welcome.

Jordan said: "We adore Blackpool, we were here for switch-on, then with the tour and we love doing Slimfest, we're here for three days. One day we might get here and actually see a bit more of Blackpool but this is great fun and that's why we do it."

Professor Green, headlined the fun-filled family event on Saturday with Raye on Sunday, other performers included Jess Folley, RoadTrip and New Hope Club.

Scouting for Girls appear for the final two shows.

From Female First:

Professor Green: My job is to communicate

London-born rap star Professor Green has claimed his job is to "communicate".

Professor Green's job is to "communicate".

The 35-year-old star is aware people expect rappers to be "racy" but he doesn't feel the need to "shout and swear" in order to get his message across.

Asked if he felt he needed to tone down his performance for the younger audience at Nickelodeon's SlimeFest in Blackpool on Saturday (19.10.19), Green - who sang 'Read All About It' and 'Got it All' at the event - exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "Do you know what, the two songs I'm performing today, there's only a swear word in each so it's funny, I know everyone expects rap to be quite racy and songs with profanities but my job is to communicate, not shout and swear for the sake of it."

Green recently released a new E.P, 'M.O.T.H.' and was delighted with the response to the record, so he's looking forward to getting back out on the road.

He said: "Response to the music has been fantastic, I'm just getting ready for the tour, so yeah busy with the music."

The tour wraps the day after the 'Lullaby' hitmaker turns 36 so he's planning to hold off his birthday celebrations until all work is finished.

He said: "We're going all over the UK and we end in London the day after my birthday, were in Manchester for my birthday.

"If I do (anything) for my birthday, we run the risk of missing the London show, I'm gonna get an early night in Manchester and celebrate the end of the tour, I'll tie in a birthday party with an end of the tour party, other than that I'll just get on a plane somewhere and escape."

Joining Professor Green in performing at Nickelodeon's SlimeFest were New Hope Club, Jess Folley, Roadtrip, Kira Kosarin, Max and Harvey and Diversity, whose members Perri Kiely and Jordan Banjo also hosted.

Stars in attendance with their families for the event - which continues at Blackpool Pleasure Beach on Sunday (20.10.19) and Monday (21.10.19) with headliners Raye and Scouting for Girls respectively - included Danielle Lloyd, Samia and Sylvain Longchambom, Lucy Fallon and Alan Halsall.
