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.
Never heard of him , then again I’d rather watch paint dry than F1....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.
Is she a Love Island whore?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!
