March 12th, 2013

Unfortunately Toyah didn’t make it to last night’s Hormonal Housewives performance in Brighton due to the snow causing tailbacks of up to 30 miles in Kent and Sussex.

Toyah tweeted several timesĀ from her car that she had been on the A23 a few miles from Brighton for more than six hours attempting to reach the theatre!

Overnight there have been numerous news reports, including Sky News, Gem 106 and Orange News, who mention Toyah being caught up in the chaos and also publish one of her tweets.

Hundreds of motorists have been trapped overnight in their cars for up to 10 hours after heavy snow brought traffic in Sussex to a standstill… The worst affected areas were the A23 between Crawley and Brighton and the M23 around Handcross Hill.

Cheryl Baker, the 1980s pop star with the Eurovision-winning group Bucks Fizz, was among those stuck on the roads as she tried to make her way along the A23 to Brighton to her children. In a series of furious tweets she said: “8 hours and still at a complete standstill. Bloody ridiculous. And they KNEW snow was coming. “Could have flown to NY by now. Was it the wrong kind of snow?”

Toyah Willcox, another 1980s pop star also found herself stranded on the A23 around 15 miles from Brighton tweeted: “Still on A23, not moved yet northbound is moving freely. 6 hours! Come on snow isn’t that bad.”
