Woo! The moment we’ve all been waiting for… The 100 finalists in the 2008 My Best Friend Rocks comp have just been announced in May 1st issue of Mizz mag. Letters have now been sent to the lucky 100, who will be joining me along with their best friends and mums, for the Ultimate Friendship Festival in London on July 6th.

If you are a winner… WELL DONE!!! I can’t wait to see you in July.

If you haven’t been lucky this time, don’t be sad – I loved ALL the amazing entries. There were many HUNDREDS of them and it was soooo tough to choose just 100 finalists, but with lots of help from MIZZ and CHILDLINE, we did our best. If you are not one of the finalists, remember that you are still a friend in a million, because you took the time and effort to create an imaginative, heartfelt entry for your BFF. And don’t forget that we’ll be running the comp again next spring, so you can get thinking and try again then!

Thanks to ALL of you who entered. MBFR is all about celebrating friendship, and anything that does that is COOL. Whether you entered or not, tell your BF how much she means to you… today!
