I mentioned this on another forum I think, but I know someone who worked on Corrie who said the cast were really unfriendly, especially Anthony Cotton and one or two of the women. This person is an actor who has worked on quite a few other high profile shows and they said the Corrie cast were by far the worst they'd ever worked with.

I'm a fan of the show so was quite saddened to hear it.

Apparently most of the crew on Corrie loathe Anthony Cotton because he's so completely vile. I don't think I have ever heard anyone say a good word about him.

No me either.

The producers of the show (or some of them anyway) aren't nice either by all accounts.

No. I've not seen one good comment about him on here. It must be a case of ... I was having a nice morning until I came across you.

Donald Sinden lives near me and is often seen around and about in town. He is a lovely man with a wicked sense of humour; chats away quite happily to everyone in the supermarket queue. Paul O'Grady also lives nearby; stood behind him in a queue but didn't dare speak to him as I was convulsed with laughter at what he was saying to the staff! Tom Baker and Joanna Lumley (really nice) also.

However the most amazing man I have met is Sir Patrick Moore. Can only say that he is one of the most welcoming, generous, down-to-earth, interesting, kind, funny, and truely eccentric person (celeb or not) that I have ever met! He really is a great man and puts all the so-called celebs to shame with his sheer generosity of spirit, despite his age and now, sadly, infirmities!

My OH met Ainsley Harriott one time while on a business trip to the UK, in some grocery store or other. He was lovely and friendly, and posed with OH for a photo, which he nicely autographed to me as OH told him I was a fan. (and posed nicely with his friend Attila, who had never heard of Ainsley Harriott before since he didn't get BBC Prime but wanted to have his photo taken with him once OH explained who he was) OH said he was exactly the way he is on tv... friendly, funny and nice.

I cannot believe this after all I have said but I met Keisha from the Sugababes last night and it really is true what people say. She is very cold and looks right through you. I also met Aston from JLS who was lovely. As was Lisa Maffia from So Solid Crew. Alesha Dixon was there as well but sadly I didn't get to meet her.

I was going to post about her.



I have met some of the people you mentioned, mostly at the Funky Buddha and some other clubs. Also most of the Saturdays. I have slagged Alesha off a few times on the Strictly thread until i met her. She is very lively and talkative. A real nice girl with no airs and graces. I think she was as drunk as me. I can remember we were both complimenting each other. She had a lot of mates with her.

I have met a few not very nice celebrities as well.

A friend of mine met him at a club once and she said he was so rude, and thought he was above everyone and did the whole 'don't you know who I am?' when he had to wait to be served..

I met Nina Wadia (Zainab in Eastenders) in Ikea recently, and she was so so lovely! Really friendly and chatty, even though she was in the returns section after ikea had delivered the wrong item to her!

No me either.

The producers of the show (or some of them anyway) aren't nice either by all accounts.
The show is apparently having a change of Executive Producer soon, and I live in hope that Anthony Cotton is axed from the show. I did hear once that the crew hated him, and also that the producers had run out of storylines for Sean because he is such a useless actor they are basically stuck for things to give him to do. They apparently can't axe him because he's so "in" with the ITV bigwigs so from now on all he will do is stand in the background pulling silly faces and making the occasional silly comment. I'm not complaining about that, but I'd rather not see his annoying face on my T.V screen.

I have only ever met Pat from Eastenders and George Lamb - both were absolutely lovely

And about six or seven years ago my mum met Liam Gallagher. She said he was delightful, really lovely guy and actually down to earth. I dunno whether or not he is still the same. As much as I love Oasis Liam always comes across as a bit of a tosser to me, but my mum loves him now.

And whilst on holiday I saw Cain from Emmerdale but I was too scared to say hello. Also saw Dick Van Dyke, and I wouldn't let my nan get an autograph because he was having dinner And Tom from McFly at the airport in America. Didn't say hello but a couple of kids went up for photos and he was being really sweet with them

Why is Anthony Cotton so "in" with the big bosses?

Have met all of JLS a few times.. All really lovely and spend time talking to fans, taking pics etc..
& N-Dubz.. Dappy in particular was very rude. At a charity football game N-Dubz were playing, so were JLS, Blue & loads others.. He would not sign autographs/take pics with people that were wearing any JLS merchandise (t-shirts etc..)

My sister and Mum both saw Christopher Biggins when he was doing panto or maybe a play in Nottingham - they were in Tesco and saw him shopping - they told me how lovely he was and stood and chatted to them for a couple of minutes....

Similar one with my Dad and my other sister who saw Lionel Blair in town when he was doing panto - my sister had no idea who he was - but again he stood and chatted for a couple of minutes - both really nice!!

I've kind of met Sherrie Hewson (Loose Women/Corrie) who came into where I was doing my work experience - totally different to how she is on LW - very calm and understated...

Again never met her, but did walk past Jayne Torvill outside my work and was amazed by how tiny she is!! Dressed down, no make up and still looked great for her age...

Thank you for saying his Corrie name as I was wondering who Anthony Cotton was!
