Seconded, recently saw her in the stage version of Birds of a Feather, went for something to eat and she was eating there as well, rude and arrogant towards her server, and no amount of cack will hide those mid Atlantic rifts on her coupon.

And as for Micheal Ball yes he was a bit off with us but he later came back to where we were sitting and apologised and explained why, he was distracted by a personal issue.

So prince of the gents crown is his still, Sir Roger Moore is the King.

At least MB came back & explained why.

Bet some of the buggers wouldnt even do that!

I think Susan Boyle has a lot to put up with from local neds as well. They apparently provoke her into coming out of her house and then she starts effing and blinding at them and they run away laughing.
Oh, that's horrid. I keep hoping attitudes towards mental health issues will improve, since it's now 2013 and all, but with people who behave like that still seemingly rife in society, I'm obviously wishful thinking.

Dave Gorman read my tweet out on his show once. I liked him even more after that. I can imagine him being a little moody, though.
Not a fan of Dave Gorman but Danny Wallace is really friendly. Danny's book was the inspiration for the film 'Yes Man'. He responded to a tweet with plenty of nice things to say and ended the first tweet with an X. I'm a bloke as well lol.

"The daughter of a friend of my family was working for Ruby Wax on some corporate conference/training thing she did, using the ranch they used in Dallas (the TV programme). This was just coming up to Christmas and knowing the girl was English RW asked her how she was getting home for holidays. She explained she couldn't get a flight and so was staying in a hotel til after when she could. RW wouldn't have it and insisted the girl stay with her over Xmas so she wouldn't be alone in some hotel."
That's such a nice thing to do.

Such a disappointment - I actually grew up believing that 'Carter' was the nice one out of him and 'Regan' (The Sweeney).

By all accounts, it was the total opposite in real life...

Kym Lomas? Really? I was stood behind her at Euston station waiting to board the train. I tweeted her telling her I saw her and she replied almost straight away saying I should have said hello. I eavesdropped on her conversation and she seemed really nice - discussing how it's cheaper to buy two singles rather than a return lol.

I met Dr David Starkey, the so-called rudest man in England, at a private view. I can only say that he was faultlessly courteous. We talked for some time about history, which, looking back, was very generous of him, as I was 18 at the time, and knew very little about anything.

I attended a memorial service at which the late Basil Cardinal Hume and the late 5th Earl of Gainsborough were guests, and I spoke to both of them. Lord Gainsborough was dressed very grandly in the robes of what must have been the Order of Malta or of St John, and he spoke only to say, "I'm Gainsborough". Cardinal Hume, on the other hand, was dressed very simply in his monastic habit. He didn't need to introduce himself, as I knew who he was, but he asked me who I was and why I was there, and we had a brief chat. I know that his reputation has suffered more recently, but he seemed to me to be a kind, gentle, and humble man.

I think here's a huge difference between the reports on this thread of one off meetings where a celeb has been offhand and the genuinely nasty celebs wher people have worked with them for a time.

We all have off days and I know if I was out shopping/eating and someone asked me to drop everything to do something related to my work life I'd be pretty peeved about it too. You may think it would "only take 2 seconds" but soon everyone in the shop or bar is asking and they've lost their down time

Then of course there's the divas who want the attention and pretend not to! I was in a club where Antony Cotton was and needed to get past him to get to the bar. I said excuse me and he barked some nonsence about not doing autographs at me! I had to ask my friend who the eff he was because I didn't watch Corrie and it was prior to the Jungle stuff

I met Yvette Fielding's husband in Waitrose car park and he was absolutely lovely. He stood chatting to me about the live shows and was a very nice (and handsome in the flesh!) man. Have heard the same about Yvette F - she knows my hairdresser and he says she's really funny and friendly and his staff say the same.

I never liked Pater Kay in the first place, but there was a documentary following him on tour, that revealed him as an utter shit.

He has a reputation in the comedy world. It ain't a good one.

Apparently he's the second most successful UK comedian after Lee Evans so he probably laughing his way to the bank

My son met them both recently in a music studio and he said that they were very pleasant, and she was quite chatty and telling them funny stories about their ghost hunting experiences

Don't get me wrong, I love his stand up (perhaps it's something to do with me being from t'North- although I know some fellow Northerners can't stand him) but when he's a guest on anything, he comes across as loud and boorish. He has to take over and steal everyone else's thunder. He can't shut up and let other people speak, which suggests a degree of arrogance. His upstaging of others crosses the line from what I find funny to actually being irritating and even embarrassing.

Maybe he doesn't mean anything by it and isn't self-aware enough to realise it, being 'larger-than-life' and all but it can grate on the gears after a while.

Theres plenty of examples of him 'taking over' isnt there?

The One Show for instance.

Bewitched - me neither. I can only imagine Theo Bear means not the twin sister who was usually doing the most "singing". I'm only guessing though.
