I wonder if they've sent all the emails out yet? Could be more to come perhaps.

I know I'm a worrypot but found yesterday's email alarming saying not guaranteed entry - have booked my train, so I hope I get in.... have submitted a question (although I don't want to be heard on air!)

I can't think of a question (that I don't already know the answer to!) Anyone got any suggestions?

Hi Clare when we used to go to London for Have I got News for you we found it best to get there about an hour & a half before the doors opened if that's any help!

I've submitted a couple of very poor questions, I don't think either will get chosen as they don't have s very intelligent content! It's a bit worrying that we aren't guaranteed entry :(

I don't think it matters whether you know the answer or not (is there anything you don't know?!) - presumably the idea is for the question to have an interesting answer!

Yes, you're right of course Elly. I must think a bit harder!

Has anyone, who has submitted one, had their question accepted?
I'm assuming mine hasn't, I think we would have heard by now.
Oh well, in for a long wait in the queue, wrap up well, it's going to be a chilly day.

I haven't heard anything, either.

Edit: I have now! My question has been chosen, and they've added a bit at the end for me to ask. Eeek! (Now hoping they overrun so they don't make me stand up in front of everyone to ask the question...)

So how does this work then?
You got an email saying you had been allocated a ticket, but now they are telling you you're not guaranteed entry?
What if you've travelled a long way / booked a hotel?
How can they do that?
It seems so mean.

They allocate more tickets than there is actually room for, on the assumption that not everyone will turn up. I would think if you arrive early enough, you'll get in - I hope so anyway! Fingers crossed.

I'm crossing everything Maureen!
Wrap up warm, it's going to be a long cold wait in that queue!
