Stars on stage outshone by stars in the crowd: Billie Piper joins TOWIE crew, Coleen Rooney and Inbetweeners at V Festival

By Alanah Eriksen

Concerts are usually all about the famous singers on stage but the two V Festivals had just as many stars in the crowd.

Billie Piper, 28, was one of dozens of celebrities at Hylands Park in Chelmsford, Essex, today.

The mother-of-one looked gorgeous in a pale peach-coloured dress, black leather jacket and leopard-print ballet slippers and she watched Clare Maguire, KT Tunstall.

Amy Winehouse's goddaughter Dionne Bromfield and Ellie Goulding also took to the stage at Weston Park in South Staffordshire and left fans screaming for more.

Also playing at the festivals today and tomorrow include Eminem, Rihanna, Plan B, Arctic Monkeys, Jessie J, Bruno Mars, Manic Street Preachers, Olly Murs, The Script, The Saturdays, The Wanted and Ziggy Marley.

The Only Way Is Essex stars Harry Derbidge, 17, and sisters Sam, 21, and Billie Faiers, 20, didn't appear to be missing their former co-star Amy Childs who is currently living in the Celebrity Big Brother House.

Harry even had his hair blow-dried in a VIP tent at the festival. Coleen Rooney was also among the stars watching and looked relaxed as she drank from a Red Bull cup while sitting in a group of friends.

The 25-year-old wife of Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney wore black Hunter wellies - identical to her four friends - and similar to the ones she wore at Glastonbury in June.

She paired the gumboots with a white T-shirt over denim shorts and kept her eyes safe from the sun with black sunglasses.

Coronation Street stars Michelle Keegan, 24, and Tina O'Brien, 28, also looked festival ready.

The wore gumboots, Tina in short black ones with her high socks peeping out the top and a short white dress with a head band over her blond hair as she strolled the park with her new boyfriend Adam Crofts.

There was no sign of Michelle's fiance, The Wanted's Max George, 22, but she looked happy in two different outfits today.

She started with a denim shirt which she wore as a dress before stripping off to reveal denim shorts and a black printed boob tube.

Raunchy: Rihanna was at her sizzling best in tiny hotpants and what looked like a customised Union Flag

Chilly: The crowd watch Bruno Mars perform on the V Stage at the festival

Star power: Dionne Bromfield, who recently lost her godmother Amy Winehouse, and Ellie Goulding

She wore a hat and aviator sunglasses and laced-up gumboots on her feet.

Inbetweeners actors Joe Thomas, Simon Bird, Blake Harrison and Hannah Tointon took a break from promoting their new movie to listen to the music.

Other stars at the festival included Harry Potter actor Rupert Grint, Peter Andre's ex Elen Rivas, Emmerdale actress Sophie Powles, former Footballers' Wives actress Sarah Barrand, celebrity hairdresser James Brown and Noel Gallagher's ex Meg Mathews.

Also there were British actress Georgina Groome, 19, comedian Leigh Francis, looking remarkably like Where's Wally in a red and white striped T-shirt and singer Jade Jones, husband of former Spice Girl Emma Bunton.
