I shared an ashtray with Nick Berry at a party once; sat next to Mick Hucknall on a flight from Milan (he was very sweet); sat opposite Ruth Madoc on a train to Brighton (oh and my mother went to school with Philip Madoc). Met Simon Weston on a different train and (literally) fell over Marc Almond in Camden Market. And I met Jacques Chirac while working in a library in a Paris suburb many years ago. Oh and I used to often see Steve Martin and Victoria Tennant while buying sandwiches at a shop in Knightsbridge.. He is very shy.
A few weeks ago A Famous Actor rang up for advice about a boat. I came over all unnecessary but M won’t let me reveal who it was. Spoilsport.
But I’ve led a sheltered life and I bet you’ve got much better anecdotes. So go on, ‘fess up, who have you met, where, when and how?
