Susan Boyle almost nearly never audition for BGT because she arrived to late. She ranted to one of the crew about how long the bus took and she begged her way into the audition.

Michael Jackson had a meeting in one of the Twin Towers on the morning of 9/11, but missed it because he overslept.

In the same vein Seth McFarlane admits he was hung over from the night before and missed his flight by 10 minutes. That plane went on to hit the North Tower.

Sex Pistol John Lydon should have been on the flight that was blown up over Lockerbie.

He only missed it due to his wife taking too long over packing, so was on the next flight out.

Aussie swimming champ, TV commentator and all round good guy - Ian Thorpe, was almost killed during 9/11 also.
He was having business& sponsorship meetings in that area, and staying in a hotel around there too.

Trivia - AC/DC have a laneway named after them in Melbourne

curious how all of these 'celebs' should have been killed in 9/11! so which 'celebs' were killed, either on the planes or in towers? There had to have been several to balance out the weight of this 'I was almost killed, but...' story that so many celebs have used if the above is true

I believe Donna Summer accused 9/11 of giving her cancer.

Stan Laurel of Laurel and Hardy:

"Always gracious to fans, he spent much time answering fan mail. His phone number was listed in the telephone directory, and fans were amazed that they could dial the number and speak to Stan Laurel... When [Dick] Van Dyke was just starting his career, he looked up Laurel's phone number, called him, and then visited him at his home."

There's a website called Letters From Stan which has over 1000 letters that Stan wrote to fans that can now be seen on this website, that's someone who definitely cared about his fans!

Frank Skinner admitted that he shagged his stalker. He came home one day and she was waiting outside his gates as usual so he invited her in for a coffee and shagged her. Not sure whether that increased or reduced her keenness on him!!

Timothy Dalton's father was in the Special Operations Executive in WW2, I wonder if he gave the future Bond some tips.

Perhaps not a great secret but despite his great intellect and education, Patrick Moore never went to university. When he was roughly of the age to go, WWII broke out so he signed up with the RAF instead. He chose not to go after the war. Didn't do him any harm though! He told me this personally as I won a competition to meet him as a kid
