BBC iPlayer and BBC Music are teaming up to take viewers backstage with Lily Allen.
BBC Music’s latest Backstage Pass episode, released today, offers a frank and very personal look behind the scenes at the Mighty Hoopla Festival.
After a four-year break from music that saw her split from her management and husband plus deal with a stalker who broke into her house, it sees Lily Allen return with a new, brutally honest album and plenty to say. The episode follows her as she prepares to take the stage at the South West London event.
When you're DESPERATE to get home and watch our Backstage Pass with @LilyAllen…🙈😂😱

Joining her at home where she gets ready for the day ahead, Lily talks about writing and recording a very personal album, her four year break, being a Mum, her thoughts on the UK press, politics and dealing with her demons. Travelling with her to the festival, it also offers an exclusive look at her stage preparation, including her vocal warm-up, before she soaks up the festival atmosphere and meets fans ahead of her set, while dealing with the continued anxiety she feels before stepping onto stage.
A day in the life of Lily Allen – older and wiser but no less controversial – Backstage Pass is available on BBC iPlayer until 18th July 2018.
