1. David James, the England goalkeeper – his partner’s children go to the same school as William, and he’s often there at pick up time. He seems a very nice and unassuming chap.
2. My second cousin is quite famous – she’s married to Prince Edward.
3. Many years ago, I went with my now sister-in-law, Amanda and her mum to the BBC to watch the National Lottery programme. Coincidentally the previous week, Amanda’s mother had five numbers come up on the lottery and had won several thousand pounds, and because of this she was featured in the show, which meant she got her own dressing room and hair and make-up done, and we went to the ‘green room’. We met all sorts of celebs that day including Geena Davis, Tom Jones, Des Lynam, Jim Bowen and Mystic Meg.
I was so excited to meet Geena Davis, as Thelma & Louise is one of my favourite films. She was absolutely TINY, I couldn’t get over how little she was.
4. Although we didn’t actually meet them, this is a celeb story that still makes me chuckle:
On a plane to St Lucia a couple of years ago, the England cricketer, Kevin Pietersen, and his wife Jessica Taylor, formerly of the pop band Liberty X, were sitting across the aisle from us. My brother was really rather taken with the lovely Jessica, and after they disembarked at Antigua and the plane flew on to St Lucia he felt the need to go and sniff her seat!!!
This is so wrong on so many levels, Nick! I would also like to point out that I didn’t take the photo, I stole it off Facebook!
