Once it was undergarments that over-excited fans threw at their music idols, but at this year’s GuilFest, one woman was so thrilled by the performance of a Robbie Williams’ impersonator that she hurled her prosthetic leg at the ersatz chart-topper!
Heather Best lost her leg in “a stupid accident at work” in 2010, and until then, had enjoyed going to festivals. On Saturday, Best, who is a major fan of Robbie Williams, attended her first festival since the accident to see tribute act “Blobbie Williams.” So moved was she by Blobbie’s singing (“He sings with a lovely voice,” she said), that Ms. Best removed her leg, waved it above her head, before throwing it “in his direction for him to then raise it in the air.”
“I’m here to have fun and to dance again,” she told Get Surrey.
“It’s good to dance even if I only have one leg.”
Heather suggested she might also give Sunday’s festival headliners a similar treat.
“I want to see the Human League,” she said. “I might even throw my leg at them if they are lucky.”
It’s certainly good publicity for Heather, who is currently setting up a rehab center for horses in Bletchingley.
“I still ride and do show jumping and stuff,” she said. “I’m building a premises now to help any horse with injuries. Leg injuries are my speciality.”
It is unknown whether The Human League were “lucky” enough to elicit a similar response.
