Celebrity squares

Reading lovely Pete’s comment about exchanging curry recipes with Robert Palmer got me thinking about all the famous people celebrities I’d come across.

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?

    Only 3 things of interest – I have swam in ex-MP Edwina Currie’s swimming pool; one of my friends was thrown out of a charity function for insulting foppish indie poseurs Suede, and last but by no means least, I have heard TV presenter Vernon Kaye slap his testicles against the insides of his thighs. It is his party piece. It makes a surprising amount of noise.

    I just don’t know where to start. Why were you in Ms Currie’s garden? Did you see inside the house? And where in God’s name were you when Vernon Kaye did this… this… senseless act of noise pollution?

    I have peed in Mel Gibson’s toilet. And I have shared a bed with Hugh
    Jackman (platonic). I also used to get the bus to school with Nicole
    Kidman.

    Wow, I think that’s the most impressive list so far (sorry Manly).

    Any other tales?
