Amanda Burton was on the one show the other day and she seemed a right stuck up mardy moo.Alex Curran has always struck me as a freeloader. She basically just sponges off her hubby for a living, ive heard other stuff about her as well. But I don';t want to be sued so I'll sssssh

Alex Curran is a model, and, she writes a column for the Mirror, so I can't really see how she sponges off her Husband.

There have been well over a hundred housemates now. I would certainly not tar them all with the same brush. Some have quietly got back on with their lives. Still, they were once in the BB housemate so they don't deserve privacy now.
I agree with you. In fact I think I've posted something similar on a different thread. It seems that certain people tar all 144 housemates with the same brush because of the actions of the determined few who continue to get papped falling out of clubs on a regular basis.

Yes, it's a very stereotypical view.

What does she actually model? she must be up there with Linda Evangelista to earn enough to live in a chav mansion, spend a fortune on trashy clothes and drive an expensive car. Plus her columnn endorsing superdrug is as a result of being married to Steven Gerard-not something she's eaned through years of committed journalism

I've met a few personalities in my time:

- Andy Crane (from Children's BBC) nice bloke

- Billy Connolly - funny and friendly

- Pat Sharp & the twins from Funhouse - very friendly and chatty, was embarrassed because I had a childhood crush on the twins!

- Alex Higgins (Hurrican Higgins) the snooker player - up himself, and quite rude

- Debbie McGee (the lovely Debbie McGeeeeeee!) very nice, pleasure to talk to, very friendly

- William Roache (Ken Barlow) arrogant, 'do you know who I am' type, his wife and daughter aren't much better

- Les Dennis - very nice, took the time to speak to me, and complimented me on what I was wearing

- I've also met a number of Scottish actors and actresses, all of whom were very, very nice: Gerrard Kelly, Paul Young (Hooked on Fishing), Jan Wilson (City Lights, Still Game, Lovejoy etc.), Andy Gray (also City Lights).

Have to agree with you there - plus, I thought she was a baby sitter when Gerard met her?

Husband has met late Bob Monkhouse twice and the second time he remembered his name. Dh said no idea how give he must've met so many people but he was very flattered and said Bob was great company. Husband's van broke down once and he got a push from Warren Mitchell (aka Alf Garnett) and he went to school with Dave Gilmour.

I've had to escort Prince Philip on a tour - very randy bloke, not horrible, def an eye for the ladies

Briefly met Christopher Eccleston, oh alright he signed my nephew's autograph, but really lovely. A very infectious grin.

Bobby Robson is like your favourite grandad. Alan Shearer happy to talk life, football and Alan was much more animated and good looking than he come across on tv sometimes.

I'm exceptionally jealous of that one! He's one of the few main cast members of Doctor Who that I haven't met yet and he's "my" Doctor, too. He's is notorious for being private, so there isn't such a high chance of meeting him at public events like there is with the other cast members.

I really hope to meet him one day and can only hope he'll do some theatre so I can bump into him at the stage door.

I met Noel Fielding and Julian Barret, who were both exceptionally lovely

Other than that, I haven't really met any other famous people...

Model? Really, what campaigns and magazine covers, shows etc has she done?

She no longer 'writes' for the Mirror either- though I highly doubt that she wrote it herself considering she can barely string a sentance together. It was a joke her writing a fashion column anyway, how does shopping for a living make you an expert of fashion? and her dress sense is awful and chavy.

I once shared a cab with Jimmy Hill, who was a real gentleman, not full of himself in the slightest, and we had a very interesting chat on a series of subjects. I think he even let me pick up the fare!

I also saw William Roache and his wife and daughter.It was in the late eighties.I was having a meal with mu Mum and Dad and a place called The post House in Sandiacre.The staff were fawning over them and treating them as if they were gods.The daughter had a giant teddy bear,and demanded it have a plate of food,she sat it at the table like another diner.His wife looked sooo snoooty as if she was abov everyone.My mum said she looked like mutton dressed as lamb anyway.

I haven't met many celebrities but they've all been quite nice.

Russell T Davies - have seen him 3 times in Cardiff Bay and once in HMV... he bought Supernatural on DVD... he's bloody tall! Bumped into someone and they dropped their CD, he picked it up and apologised

Tony Hart - in Dulverton, when I was about 5 (so just over a decade ago!) he smiled at us and waved, probably amazed we recognised him tbh.

Rhydian - genuinely nice, if a little odd... fell over in front of him :S

I haven't met David Tennant but I know he's nice - my grandmother's friend had made some Christmas cards for charity and he bought a whole bunch, also my friend caught him filming and he took about 15 minutes to talk to her, gave her his autograph and took a picture with her (he's making bunny ears over her head, haha).

Julian Barret - saw him in the British Museum, he had a baby with him and kept laughing hysterically as it tried to eat a cake, haha. He seemed happy to talk with people, but I'm not a fan so I left him alone.

Oh and I forgot, Trevor Eve could charm the knickers off a nun - he's gorgeous and a lovely man.

Haven't met Anthony Hopkinks but Jack Nicholson is lovely. He snubbed the press (bet they were seething! ) in favour of spending more time with the fans and despite it being January and so cold I couldn't feel my body, he stayed outside with for ages. I think most people who were in the front line didn't go away disappointed and he was shaking hands and posing for photos as well. He's clearly very fan savvy and knows exactly how to handle it all.

I'm sorry and please don't take it the wrong way but your spelling mistake there just made me smile


i crashed into pam ayres' trolley in waitrose in witney years ago...she took it quite well if i remember rightly but i was only about 12... no lasting harm done

apparently my mum saw kevin whately [inspector morse and lewis] walking down a high street in truro years ago too but i was too busy to notice as i had my then teenage chompers around a huge cornish pasty...

hey it was lunch time, celebs and actors come a very poor second next to food...


i'd love to meet kevin spacey, has anyone met him? and ken stott, i hear he's really nice, wouldn't mind meeting him either

agree totally on respecting their privacy, they're still people like the rest of us although there are some that just feed off the media and we all know who they are!

CoughCandy, I am sooo ridiculously, majorly jealous of you meeting Freddie Mercury!!!

He is my No 1 hero of all time!!

I spent last Wednesday evening with Jamie Theakston and Harriet Scott (Heart fm breakfast) at the television awards, as I won a comp to sit with them in their box. They were both lovely.

Nigel Harman - met a couple of times. He is very nice

Richard and Lea from BB7. Won comp to go in limo with them to opening of celebrity Big Brother Hijack in January. Very friendly and chatty

Dermot O'Leary - met a few times and always talks to his fans

Louis Walsh and Danni Minogue came to speak to us when won VIP tkts to X Factor last yr. Nice of them to do that

Ben Shepherd at a MIchael Buble Magic radio event was friendly but his wife was not. She didn't want us to have photo taken with him. Ben happily posed for photo with us.

I've met loads of others who have all been friendly.
Wow, You've won quite a few comps, I wish I could win some like that, I'm just very unlucky. Oh and I've never met any celebrities either. lol

Met Gok Wan at the weekend in a club. Quite possibly the rudest person I have ever encountered, celebrity or otherwise!

Oh no, elaborate!

If you're female, did he comment on your "bangers"?

I saw her several times in the Ladies at the Cogges Farm Museum. Our children's bladders seemed to be synchronised.

I saw Robson Green in the Metro centre a couple of years ago, all I did was glance at him and he started the whole "Please leave me alone, I want to shop in peace etc" crap. I said "You're a s**t actor anyway you dozy t**t!" and walked off.

Has anyone ever met David Paisley actor of Tinsel Town and Holby City/Casualty Fame ????????? He is currently starring in Scottish soap River City !!!
Yeah I've met him, used to be out every friday night at Popstarz in London - seems like a nice guy!

As for whoever it was earlier slagging off Davina McCall - shame on you! She's one of the loveliest people I ever met.

Graham Norton, on the other hand is the most unpleasant little turd I ever had the misfortune to chat to!

Paul Nicholls - arrogant swine - but why?! What's he got to be arrogant about?!

Oh and Stuart Miles from Blue Peter is a sex pest - spent the night chasing my friend and I...

But Matt Lucas is lovely!
