I didn't find out until 3 days later.
I was on holiday you're right
and we were somewhere with no telly, and phones didn't work abroad really (we were in the philippines)
someone actually told me that she died quite soon after it happened but i thought they were lying so just was like "shut up" and then forgot about it until a few days later
It was my Nan's birthday, Woke up and it was all over the news while I was having breakfast.

I just followed my original plan for the day and went round to Davis' and got muntered. We watched his recording of Helen Daniels dying on Neighbours.
I had to go into work that day - was working a summer job at Comet. Lots of people were just standing round staring at the TVs. Shift manager was so upset he was consider shutting the store for the day.
so woke up in a blurry haze around 5am with (I think) channel 5 news talking about it.

I was pissed off I could watch Football Italia
in her charming over-emotional Catholic way, woke me up in the early hours to tell me about the crash. I was more bothered about being woken up a few hours before a CRUCIAL u-14s Sunday league game, before which, incidentally, we had the most painful minutes silence in recorded history.
old lady told me it'd happened as i was delivering her paper I was like "oh dear, that's bad news" thinking she was senile
I need somebody with a human touch.
or Julian Clary
or Alan Carr
I really think we should have someone a bit naffly camp
