IF YOU ever get the chance to sit in Ellen’s studio audience, I have one piece of advice for you: pack your dancing shoes.

I guarantee that you’ll spend more time on your feet shaking your booty during the taping than you have at any boozy wedding in the past.

Here’s what my experience was like when I sat in the studio audience recently to watch an episode of the hugely successful talk show being filmed:

Armed with a VIP pass (I know a guy) I arrived at a carpark across the road from Warner Bros. studio in Los Angeles at 1.30 in the afternoon.

There were already hundreds of ticket holders gathered at the designated meeting place and the sense of excitement among the mostly female crowd was infectious.
