Emma Thompson told Graham Norton about how she 'almost died' in an Arctic Monkeys mosh pit

Nanny McPhee covered in wee!

LAST NIGHT’S GRAHAM Norton Show was always going to be guaranteed craic with Emma Thompson on the couch, and of course she delivered.

The actress was full of beans as usual, regaling the audience with a story about the time she and her “54-year-old best mate” went to the Reading music festival – along with “90,000 teenagers”.

There is photographic evidence of her with some ladsladslads, thank god:

She said she was having a nice time at the festival until, by accident or design, she ended up in the mosh pit at an Arctic Monkeys gig.

I was all crushed in, being moved up and down by people thinking, “Oh NOW’S when I die.” I always wondered, and I thought it would be young, but I didn’t picture this.

After that, her experience took a turn that will be very familiar to seasoned festival-goers:

Someone shat on someone’s tent, and then someone blew up another tent, and then the toilets overflowed and I had to use those little piss things… It was hell, it was HELL. I’m never going again.

She is referring, of course, to the iconic piece of merchandise known as the Shewee.

“I love that people who are high at Reading would have run into you thinking ‘NANNY MCPHEE’,” said fellow guest Cara Delevingne. “Nanny McPhee covered in wee!”

Amazing. Please, people, if you see Emma Thompson in a mosh pit in the future, protect her. She’s all we have.
