To be fair the elevator was not overcrowded, at the entrance before the doors opened there was five of us waiting to enter the lift, I, my OH, Bloke & Child and some lackey they had with them, we all stepped back when the doors opened to accommodate a young girl with stroller who was exiting the lift. At that point there was no one on the lift.

They proceeded to enter the lift at which point their lackey uttered words 'lift full' to us, she was lucky my OH did not slap her disgust towards us of her face. Elevators at Westfield can legally accommodate 15 i believe.
Ah i see, that didn't come across in your first post, i assumed you meant some elevator attendant thingy told you no.

I did some of the XF tour & found it the opposite way round...Jedward were quite rude and only wanted to speak to their 'regular' fans who followed them round the country...even heard one of them say "Who are all these randoms who think they can ask for a picture?"! lol
...Really? First negative thing I've heard from anyone who's met John and Edward.
Aw well, I still want to meet them

It's a weird one as they definitely had loads of time for the fans & spent ages signing autographs and doing pictures...just only with the 'faces' that they had seen before and had supported them all along! Or maybe they just pick and choose which fans they like the look of?

Lloyd wasn't particularly nice...my friend asked for a picture and he said "OK but hurry up about it" with a bit of a scowl...which I thought was a bit much considering he was on that tour by the skin of his teeth, given that he can't actually sing!?

Danyl & Jamie were nice enough and happy to have a chat and pictures...didn't really speak to any of the girls so couldn't comment. Didn't see a great deal of them though, really?

Joe was very sweet but the security were all over him like a rash and not letting him stop for the fans...which is a shame!

Olly was far and away the nicest

Timmy Mallet did a little show at our local jumping jaks in 2004, my friend was working at Jaks at the time, and TM was begging her and some of the other girls to go back to his hotel room. Also, he tried on a number of occasions to touch some of the girls as "a laugh" when he was on stage.

I've heard so many bad stories about Timmy Mallett, I think it's definitely a case of no smoke without fire!

I met Noel Gallagher 2 years ago

Noel: "just a little test, name your favourite Oasis song"
Me: "erm erm Columbia or Gas Panic"

He suddenly smiles and shakes my hand.
I then got his autograph and picture.

Noel: "if you'd have said Wonderwall then I'd have probably told you to piss off"

But he said it in a joking way, really cool, honest bloke.

I didn't meet him because I didn't want to bother him, but I walked past Keith Duffy today (guy from Boyzone, and plays Ciaran in Coronation Street) he was literally next to me! It felt awesome!

David Walliams and Matt Lucas.

Matt Lucas: Sort of pleasant, friendly.

David Walliams: Miserable, grumpy, unfriendly.
we had issues with david when little britain came to the theatre i work at his dresser ( she worked for the theatre not him/production) was 6 months pregnant and he was treating her like a slave when she mentioned it wansn't her job to be his slave he made a nasty comment about her keeping her legs crossed.

Although I never met them myself my uncle was really close friends with Freddie Mercury and Richard O'Brien, they were both apparently really awesome people. Freddie used to hold the most amazing parties and the invitation cards that my uncle got for them were spectacular too. Freddie also used to go by a COMPLETELY different name sometimes in his private life

I met most of the Dancing On Ice stars last month on the tour. Gary Lucy was lovely he took his time to chat and have a picture with me and my friend. Matthew Gonzalez was also great, he chatted for about five minutes. The other stars were all friendly but those are the two that really stand out as the nicest

Met Ricky Groves (Garry from EE)... seems like a nice bloke.

Also not met him, but apparently Chelsea defender John Terry is a nice bloke, according to my mate who met him, apparently went out of his way to sign autographs, and have pictures taken with the fans.

probably arranging secret trysts with female fans lol

I have heard he is a nice bloke though but a total arse hole when it comes to women, big surprise

Met Jimmy Carr after a gig, so lovely, even though me and my friends were practically stalking him (there wasn't any time for photos, so we hung around till the end and made him have one with us, no wonder he looks scared in it! plus outside the venue, we kept bumping into him, he probably was just wishing we would go!)

I've met John Barrowman,

James Marsters

and Eve Myles at a signing. John was rushed off his feet, so didn't get loads of time to talk to him, but seems like a lovely guy. James is LOVELY (I'm biased - Buffy is my favourite programme of all time), he loves a bit of eve contact and shaking hand for a long time. Eve, well she is just a sweetheart! Such a lovely girl, wondering if we were having a good day and what we were up to.


Haven't met a bad one so far!
OMG I am so jealous u met James Marsters- Buffy and Angel are my fave tv shows ever! Angel's my favourite character but Spike was so 2nd

Lorne Spicer truly awful woman
Having recently watched a few episodes of 'Beat the Bailiff' on Sky 3, I can truely believe that.

She appears to look at the person she is trying to help with utter contempt sometimes.

Ryan Giggs - couldn't have been nicer, more down-to-earth, and seemingly unimpressed with his own fame and accomplishments.

Robbie Fowler - 100% the opposite.

I just posted on the thread about Judy Finnegan and realised that I'd not commented here about Richard Madeley - probably because they are near neighbours and I don't tend to think about their 'celebrity' much. I just want to say that, although I never see Judy, Richard is always out and about. He seems a thoroughly nice guy - always as cheery as he appears in the media - locals don't tend to greet him, but he always smiles/waves/says hello when he sees you!

We also see Jonathan Ross, who lives on the other side of the Hampstead Heath extension and is sometimes out there with kids & dogs. I've never spoken to him, but he is always getting involved in local events (fetes, prizegivings etc.) and, although I don't think much of his TV persona, I can say he does his bit for the local community. You can always spot his wife - she's the only person around here with flourescent magenta hair...

Met the author John Connolly at a book signing today (one of precisely two people I'd stand in line to meet) - an absolutely lovely bloke, took time with everyone, chatted away, personalised all signings and just couldn't have been nicer.

Liam Neeson helped pick gloop out of my hair when I was about 11. Much of Rob Roy was filmed where I live and I befriended the directors daughter, Daisy. She was a bit of a bitch but I thought it was ace that her dad was a director so thought I'd just put up with her cowness.

One night I stayed over at the house her family were renting whilst filming and Daisy through this toy gloopy stuff at me. It all went in my hair and was like chewing gum. I started going crazy at her screaming (I had such beautiful hair) and her parents came running to see what happened. Her mum took me to another room to try and save my hair and then Liam Neeson walked in. I was in a bit of a state and he sat down next to me and started to help pick this crap of my hair. He was such a lovely dad type.

My hair had to be cut short to get rid of the stuff but I guess it's my own fault for being such a fame whore! Plus Liam Neeson touched my hair and said it was pretty!

I've met quite a few cos I'm an extra. Off the top of my head, Ricky Gervais and Connie Fisher were the stand-out ones. Both friendly, polite, and sweet.

So pleased to hear that about Lacey Turner, and I think that's a nother person who's said that Kym Marsh is not particularly pleasant.
