OK, here we go.
Met Ronald Reagan
Worked Olympics with Lord Coe and Bad boy Boris
Met and talked and got a back stage pass from Johnny Cash.
Pat Jennings. Biggest hands I have ever shaken.
Nicest footballer I met? Dion Dublin. So genuine.
Biggest regret? Turned down an invite to attend an end of tour party that turned into a jam session with Paul Young

Can't believe I forgot this one. A business partner and I had an argument and very nearly a dust up with the blonde plasterer and little electrician from DIY SOS. They were proper twats. The production crew took them away.

I don't mean to took my own horn, but I reckon we'd have easily thrown a beating into them.

Ian Wright was a customer of mine when I managed a bank in Croydon when he played for Arsenal, plus wife number ? (lost track of which one it might have been) used to work for me.

Decent enough bloke, but not the sharpest tool in the box - reckon that he got his car towed away every time he came in as Croydon used trucks circling the town centre all day to do that & he would keep parking on the red lines outside the bank.

Um, no. He was very much acquainted with a blond half his age dressed like she was maybe his nurse at the time. He was hammered and looked like he'd done 8 rounds with Mike Tyson but he still gave us the time of day so fair play to him for that. This was in Gatwick airport, if memory serves, pre-flight to Tenerife. Turns out he and his *nurse* are going the same place me and my mate Andy are. We board the plane and we're in the very back row so when the drinks trolley comes round we get first dibs. Champagne it is, obvs. I mean, its gone 9am by this stage. George is about 6 rows in front of us. When the trolley reaches his row there is - shall we call it - an animated conversation. There was only one bottle of champagne on the flight. He was not a happy chap.

Too late, now at Victoria. Didn't realise it was him until he spoke tbf. He did, rather impressively, fall asleep while looking at his phone for a while.

I split open a large prawn as part of my starter at Langans in Mayfair and the contents of its head shot over my shoulder and into Lorraine Kelly's hair





So weird...

I'm spending a bit of time up at a hide in the middle of a field studying Red Kites as part of my degree. It's run by the RSPB so you get loads of bird watchers come through to watch them feed, usually pensioners and school kids. Today, Danny Dyer turned up. Danny Dyer. Birdwatching. So surreal.
There were a couple of pensioners there who obviously didn't know who he was but we made eye contact when he first came in and he looked quite embarrassed that I recognised him. So awkward. He just sat there with his binoculars not saying a word.




I think of these 2 every time anyone mentions claims to fame to me

Just thought I'd randomly bump them :LOL:


EDIT: Blame Quirk for his Ryanair joke

Mrs jelly met grayson Perry yesterday. He's running an exhibition at her place of work as it was the first place to put on a show for him years ago.
She said he was lovely, friendly and approachable, didn't have airs and graces and was happy to chat with people.

My wife's met him before too and said the same thing.

They did have the whole pottery thing in common which helped.

Is this the Art Club exhibition at The Mac?
