Met Matthew Corbett in Cuba - Was on an excursion and got chatting to him and his wife not knowing who he was as he had sunglasses and hat on. It took a while for the penny to drop, as I recognized his voice. It was only until he took his hat and glasses off it was confirmed.
Really down to earth lovely guy with an underlying dark humour. Me and my girlfriend hung around with him and his wife most of the day. Sold the rights to Sooty so he could retire and travel the world.
I had completely forgotten that I'd met him myself. In a pub in the middle of nowhere about 4-5 years ago. He really is a lovely guy. Just had a brief chat, but as you say he's very down to earth.
