Lorraine Kelly was one of the many celebrities who descended on Wimbledon this week, although she was one of the few who experienced the full VIP treatment by scoring a seat in the Royal Box. Find out how the TV presenter got on in her HELLO! diary...

What a wonderful day I had at Wimbledon. If you watched Friday's show you will know that our fashion expert Mark Heyes picked a special outfit for me to wear to watch the tennis.

I couldn't believe that the lovely summer dress he chose cost just £15 from Primark. So many people at Wimbledon commented on how much they liked it and were astonished at the price.

I also had my perfect comfortable summer sandals from Office. It's taken me so long to find sandals that are both comfy and stylish and I really wish I had bought two pairs, as I am going to wear these out very quickly.

The day kicked off with a lovely lunch at The Lawn, beautifully organised by the team at Keith Prowse which was a real treat, and then we took our seats at Centre Court to see a surprisingly well-behaved Nick Kyrgios beat Brandon Nakashima.

We had time for a wander around the grounds to buy some souvenirs and treat ourselves to afternoon tea.

Just when I thought the day couldn't be any more perfect, we were given a fantastic invite to the Royal Box to watch one of my all-time favourite players Rafael Nadal get through to the quarter-finals.

The view from the Royal Box is absolutely incredible and I felt so close to Nadal I could have wiped the sweat from his brow! I was in esteemed company with actors Mark Rylance, Sir Ian McKellen and David Suchet and arts presenter and writer Melvyn Bragg.

I felt so very lucky and it was an unforgettable day.
