Wearing a hot pink coat and T-shirt combination, the American singer-songwriter greeted fans who had queued up for their copies to be signed.

Debbie teamed the bright ensemble with a pair of leopard print sunglasses which hung casually on her top, a pair of black leggings and Vans trainers.

The star styled her blonde locks into a lightly tousled textured hairdo as she posed up a storm at the signing.

A dash of black eyeliner on top of smoky pink eye shadow was accompanied by a pink lip and a dusting of blusher.

Her Waterstones appearance came after fans who paid to hear her talk at the Cheltenham Literature Festival walked out of the interview on Sunday.

Audience members hit out at the host Rob Roth, accusing him of 'terrible, disjointed questioning' and being the 'worst interviewer ever'.

Fans later took to social media to share their scathing reviews, prompting sarcastic responses from Roth including, 'thanks for coming on the tour bus.'

The singer was at the event to talk about her memoir which charts her rise to fame with Blondie and their hits including Call Me, One Way or Another and Heart of Glass. 

She appeared alongside Blondie co-founder and former partner Chris Stein, in conversation with artist and director Rob Roth, who led the interview on Sunday evening.

Guests claimed Roth's dry questions garnered little enthusiasm from his interviewees and he appeared to flounder in an hour-long interview.

Several people left the tent before the event had finished and one staff member said they'd 'never seen that amount of people walk out of a literature event so early'. 

One ticketholder on Twitter called it 'unstructured, uninformative and not very entertaining', adding: 'Very disappointing, embarrassing lack of preparation and poor delivery.

'People left after few minutes, wish we had. Having seen many great lit fest events, a shame this was so poor.'

One audience member said: 'Odd moves on Roth's part included asking questions such as, 'From the Switzerland tour...was there anything that happened that you maybe don't remember, or anything that you're only remembering now?', prompting a blank look from his interviewees.'

Roth has also been accused of speaking more than his interviewees and dropping in 'groan-inducing' jokes.
