Lindsay Lohan will switch on Kettering's Christmas Lights

Lindsay Lohan to switch on Kettering town's Christmas Lights
In yesterday's post, I reported that Lindsay Lohan made a promise to the people of Kettering to switch on their Christmas lights.
She made the promise after she tweeted that she had no idea where Kettering was. It got the Kettering MP, Philip Hollobone, fuming.
After Lindsay Lohan's utterly disgusting and offensive tweet on the night of the European Union referendum, Mr Hollobone invited her to come to Kettering to switch on their Christmas lights.
In his words, "To redeem her political reputation."
Yes, apparently she has a political reputation. Who knew?
Lindsay Lohan responded to the Kettering Member of Parliament: "Direct message me about your offer. Would be happy to light the Christmas tree in Kettering."
Kettering Borough Council jumped on the bandwagon and repeatedly tried to contact the Mean Girl, who lived up to the title of being a Mean Girl, and ignored them.
Philip Hollobone told BBC news, "She said she would come and switch on the Christmas lights at Kettering but, despite everyone's best efforts, it's simply not possible to track her down."
Hollobone added, "I'm a great believer in if you have made a pledge, then you should honour it. However, the people of Kettering know what celebrities can be like, so we weren't counting our chickens too much."
But he may get his Christmas wish after all.
Lindsay Lohan WILL turn on Kettering's Christmas lights, probably.
Yes, Lindsay Lohan may yet travel to the Northamptonshire town of Kettering to switch on the Christmas lights.
Hopefully, if she does, Kettering Borough Council will purchase a few more lights. Kettering is famous, not just for its Weetabix, or Cheaney's and Loake's shoes, but for also having some of the most dismal Christmas decorations in the country.
One local resident said, "They are terrible. A few strands of lights dotted around with half the bulbs blown, doesn't make for a great Christmas atmosphere. Lindsay Lohan would be sickened to see them if she came here."
Another wrote: Last year, they had about twenty lights on a tree that were just thrown on from a nearby building. It didn't look good.
Kettering has finally made contact with Lindsay Lohan
"We can confirm," said a Kettering Borough Council spokesman, "that we have made direct contact with Lindsay Lohan's representatives."
But would she really come to Kettering?
Lindsay Lohan is having a few difficulties at the moment. She could be facing the possibility of bankruptcy.
Lohan has until November 8th to pay a bill of £77,600 for her £3.5million London apartment after being issued with legal papers. If she doesn't pay up, her creditors will petition the court for her bankruptcy.
Kettering Borough Council said, "Understandably, Lindsay Lohan is very busy, but her representatives are looking to see whether she can make it work."
So, Kettering may yet get a Hollywood star to do the big switch-on.
Watch this space for updates.
However, there are some residents of Kettering who are hoping to have Sonia from Eastenders (a British soap-opera) turn on the lights on November 24th.
Her storyline in the long-running television show famously saw her move from Albert Square in the East End of London, to Kettering, Northamptonshire, to pursue her dream job in private healthcare.
