Cherrie Blair, vile excuse for a woman, saw her spit on the back of a young girls head at a charity function back in 2008, again if I was her I'd never eat/have drink out ever again.
Deliberately!?

Fair play if he is your cup of tea, my first and thankfully only meeting with him it was instant dislike.

We can't all like the same things people.

Yes in my opinion, what angered me more was the fact the charity gig was to award kids/teens who have overcome personal medical issues, the girl she spat on has learning difficulties, it may have been an accident on Blairs wife's part and its my word against hers if truth be told.

After reading this thread, I just laughed out loud at Cilla Black trying to put "celebrities who say "don't you know who I am" " into Room 101

You've got to say Cilla has some front, she must know the rumours about her, particularly from air-port crews.

Obviously she threw in that she was BIGGER than this other star

I only think he's nice to look at

I think people have said on here before he's pretty foul in real life

I've met a lot of actors and Johnny Depp has to be the nicest celebrity I've encountered personally. He's not like a celebrity at all and although my time with him was very brief, he still managed to make it feel like a personal and intimate experience. He's a gem of a human being - one of the few celebrities who live up to the hype when it comes to everything said about how genuine they are.

I've also had positive experiences with Christian Bale, Kate Winslet, Keira Knightley, David Tennant, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Zachary Qunito.

Thankfully I haven't met anyone who was horrible. At worst, when I met Kylie Minogue she came across as disinterested but it was very shortly after she'd recovered from her cancer so she gets a pass, and I feel a bit crass to even mention it. It was still great to meet someone who was a childhood hero.

Met Melinda Messenger a few years back in Swansea and she was really lovely.
Alex Jones from The One Show used to go out with my mate and she's a lot quieter away from the telly.
Met Dr Michael Mosley from the Horizon programmes and he was slightly aloof but still came across well.

Oh and I met Nicky Evans from Shameless and Tim Vincent in a bar in Los Angeles years ago.
Nicky Evans was really nice but Tim Vincent was a bit up himself.
I think they were both in Emmerdale at the time.

TBH, I hate judging people like this because I've got it wrong with impressions of people so many times.
But like certain celebs who have been mentioned on here for their terrible behaviour I think a thread like this is Gold.
By the way did anyone see that lovely down to earth character Cilla Black on Room 101 last night?

Derren Brown - I was very nervous meeting him as i'm a huge fan but he was very nice, always makes time after his live shows to meet fans and sign/have photos taken with everyone.

Penn and Teller - Also very nice and always meet the fans after their Vegas shows.

Alan Carr - Met him by accident on a night out in a club a few years ago, and despite me behaving like a slightly drunken fanboy he was lovely, very funny and happy to pose for pictures etc

Yeah, as has been said before, it's the ones who consistently get bad rep that seem to be the genuinely 'difficult' ones .

I met Jack White a few times last year after some shows. Nicest guy, humble, very funny and has a personality that fills up an entire room I've read stories of him being quite arrogant but I didn't get that impression at all! Smokes like a chimney and is incredibly tall.

Alison Mosshart is an absolute sweetheart, such a free spirit and just downright lovely.

I read somewhere that he shoehorned his family into reserved seats allocated to lucky ticket holders for the diamond jubilee concert, daily mail probably. Ticket holders apparently livid when they went to their seats.

She usually does. In all recent interviews where I've been unfortunate enough to catch her, she doesn't fail to throw in how successful she was in comparison with her contemporaries of the day. She feigns surprise ('surprise surprise! ) and comes out with something like "Oh, I was told the other day that I outsold...[insert 'x' female singer of the 1960s]." Sometimes, her interviewer will throw it in "Oh, did you know that you had more hits than...?" and it makes me a bit suspicious that they might have been 'primed' to say it in the pre-interview blurb because they know it will flatter her ego and get her talking.

Someone ought to tell her that bigger ain't necessarily better and that some of her contemporaries of the day blew her out of the water, vocally. She did used to have a half-decent voice but it was nowhere near the quality of people such as Dusty Springfield, Dionne Warwick and even Petula Clark. As the years went by, her voice got harsher and harsher 'til it sounded something like a constipated hen being chased with an axe.

I reckon she was bitter she never made it in America and by the late sixties was seen more as a host of syrupy entertainment shows than a singer on a par with Dusty Springfield. Also Surprise Surprise has to be the most toe curling, false show she ever presented- I bet she really wanted to be away from people she considered beneath her.

That's because she doesn't have an Autocue.

Lembit Opik is lovely
Yes, strongly agree. I met him at an Irish Astronomy Association meeting here in NI few years back when he gave a talk about his grandfather who was a prominant astonomer. One of the best talks I have ever attended, he really knows his stuff in that field - fascinating speaker and a really, really nice person.

I'm no doubt the only person on the planet.... but I think Dusty was over-rated and at Cilla's best, I preferred her voice over Dusty's. But I will agree re Pet Clark (brilliant, such clarity) and Dionne.

I met Richard Attenborough when I was at school...bit of a weird one, he was a fan of a book that one of my teachers wrote, I think he did the foreword for one of the editions of it.

This was just after Jurassic Park came out so everyone was in awe

Very nice guy, as far as I remember anyway.

I know! Don't get me wrong, I still think she was very good but I just didn't "get it" because to me I felt her range was quite limited. (Hides for cover).

Anwyay, sorry I've veered off topic.

Fair do's Ella
I bet there are a fair few that would agree with you.
Because I've often had a pop at Cilla on DS I did find some clips of her earlier recordings (and my bf's mum loved her voice)...she did have a good voice. One person's preference is as good as another's. I do think in more recent decades it got shriller, though. Maybe due to strain.
Dusty herself had a bit of a tempestuous private life but I liked her stand on Apartheid. I liked the 'smokiness' of her voice and do tend to prefer the huskier-voiced female singers.

Like you say you think Dusty was over-rated, I think Pet Clark has been under-rated. Read a recent interview with her and was delighted to see she's still working and busy at 80. She always did seem to have that Peter Pan thing going on!
