Tenuous Claims to Fame.

I sat on a ski lift with Richard Branson and his ski instructor. We chatted (my springer bitch was in pup) and I got a call two days later saying he'd like to buy a puppy. He changed his mind, the git.

I also chatted to James Blunt while he had a smoke (very nice guy) and stood in a queue next to Hugh Grant (utterly sullen & miserable, hiding his face under a snood which only made him more recognisable as Hugh Grant trying to go incognito).

A friend and I got a push around George Square from the half the Scotland squad who were doing an interview/promo piece in Glasgow just as his car juddered to a halt. They just grinned when we said "could you give us a push" and helped out. Probably the fastest the car ever went.

Wasn't this snood? Was it?

In 1986 I was backpacking in Australia, stayed with some distant relatives in Sydney, they had a very effeminate 16year old son. In the early 90's I found out he was now a she and was dating a famous rugby league player who went on to captain the England team. I'm not sure if he realised she was a he, my cousin wanted to sell the story to The Sun, but I pointed out he was probably quite a big bloke and might not be amused.
She was stunning and yes I probably would have given the chance.
 
Shared a helicopter to the Isles of Scilly once with Janet Street Porter.



Spent most of the journey with my head out the door to get away from the noise.

I used to nod to a bloke id see at Finsbury park station occasional, it was one of those i know you mate but cant think where from. So after a while he started to nod back to me ..... years later I found out that he was the garage mechanic in Crossroads .

As an aside I ve seen tons of famous people in the west end where I used to work and i noticed that many of them looked very sheepish and shy .
 
Thats her! And her slightly put on Manc/northern accent.
Mate, you niece is going to be a stunner when she's older (assuming she's still at school)
 
Ummm... Well, now... Funny you should say that...
But seriously; thank you for your confidence in me. I'm Welsh Independent, not Roman Catholic.

My bold ….. there's lovely for you boyo!

I was (maybe) one of the last people ever to be issued a battledress blouse as part of my uniform. It was 1980, I was just a new kid to Air Cadets, and the squadron was very short on woolly pulleys, so out came a small RAF blue blouse for me. The arms were way over my wrists, it was saggy from much previous issue, and I didn't half look a cunt in it when it was topped by a beret that could have doubled as a teacosy.

Following on from my earlier post I have realised that I do know someone who may be considered famous, and any F1 racing fans on the Arrse will probably recognise him or will has heard him on race commentaries etc..

I give you Sean Kelly...





Sean went to school with my son and they used to drive my wife and I up the wall playing car racing computer games until 2 or 3 in the morning when they were teenagers.

He's a nice guy though and occaisionally calls round to the house for a cup of tea and to say hello when he is in the UK to visit family. Last time we saw him was just after Christmas when my wife and I went for a drink with Sean and my son. :)
Never heard of him , then again I’d rather watch paint dry than F1....

Not really my thing either... my son always complains about people who watch a race up to the first corner (where most of the crashes occur) and then change channels... :)
 
I used to say good evening to Susannah York, she was lovely, she bought the old house on the Corner of Elsynge road and Spencer road
On a day trip to London we bumped into her in a bar off Trafalgar Square. Very tidy and pure MILF material
 
My daughter is slightly famous and becoming more so each day. She attracts multi-millionaires like flies and spent cases around an Iraqi wedding.

Observing her life as her father is a truly surreal experience.

And no, just no, before the inevitable requests!
 
Years ago, my local was the same as her what played Nadia Popov on Rentaghost. I can confirm that (albeit years ago), she is a charming person away from the telly.
 
Adolescent crush after seeing her in her under crackers in the BoB film...
When I met her it was few years after We'll meet again.
47 at the time

Is she a Love Island whore?
