Billie Book Signing at Asda Walmart 

Fans queue for hours to meet Swindon star
 
Billie Piper arrived back home in Swindon tonight - and caused quite a stir in the process.

The Doctor Who favourite made a special appearance at the Asda Walmart superstore in north Swindon to sign copies of her autobiography 'Growing Pains' - and meet the mass of fans who turned out to see her.

"It's great to be back - and wow! what a crowd," Billie said, on seeing the 300 yard queue that had already snaked round the outside of the store by the time she arrived at 5.15pm.

First in line were nine-year-olds Katie Hunter and Lilly Cox, who had waited over three hours to finally get a glimpse of their idol and have their treasured copy of her book autographed.

"Billie's brilliant," said Katie, "I loved her as Rose Tyler in Doctor Who and I watch everything she does on TV."
"She's my hero," said Lilly.
 
 
Although still only twenty-four, the much-awaited autobiography tells the story of how Billie turned from an aspirational schoolgirl growing up in Swindon into a mega-selling pop singer and now an award-winning actress - plus all her showbiz trials and tribulations in between.

Billie, who had originally arranged just a one-hour signing session in the store, eventually spent over three hours meeting her fans; happily posing for pictures and telling stories of her life as a TV time-traveller.

Billie can be seen next on television at Christmas, when she stars as Sally Lockhart in the Victorian sleuth story 'The Ruby in the Smoke'.
