Was on the Cambridge to Kings Cross train last week. Sitting at a group of four seats a chap gets on and sits opposite.

I tend to smile/say hello to people who sit with/near me, maybe a bit weird but a pleasantry costs nothing. He smiles back and gets on with some phone calls and reading some papers.

Something inside says 'I know your face' and I'm trying to peep over my copy of the Metro in a subtle way to try and remember who he is, by Finsbury Park the penny dropped.

Anyway, he must have clocked all along that I was trying to work out who he was, because the moment I recalled, he looked up grinned and says quietly 'Yes I am'

I feel a bit foolish by now, but he was really friendly, saw the work logo on my fleece and asked what I did in London. Fair play to him, he made an effort to be interested and when he got up to get off the train, he smiled and said was nice to meet you.

Was John Sessions.

Had the misfortune to eat within earshot of this harridan who loves to play the 'do you know who i am' card. Nasty and spiteful to her server and if you dared to look in her direction it was daggers. Still don't know till this day how she was able to scream for ten minutes about the soup.

Just remembered i was in the same store as Shona McClarty and Mat Lipsuckass (they play Whitney/Goon brother in Easties),McClarty has a foul mouth and BO that could floor an elephant, Mr Lipsuckass is defo a friend of Dotty and he is NOT fooling anyone with the pretend loved up nonsense.
BIB What does that mean?

A euphemism for being gay apparently ('friend of Dorothy' is the correct expression).

Indeed. She probably knows it too which probably makes her very bitter.

I just went to Twitter and surprise surprise - she trending

Re Cilla! You know that saying 'you can judge a man/woman a lot by the company he/she keeps'? As Paul O'Grady is such good pals with Cilla - do you reckon he's a bit of a twonk too?

BTW - is there anyone here from Liverpool who likes her. I'm from Liverpool - and my whole family and everyone I know from Liverpool can't stand her.

Yeah my dad's a scouser and we used to frequent a market in Liverpool every week when I was little where Cilla's mum had a stall. Everyone pretty much hated Cilla there too!

I'm guessing she must have been rude to hundreds, if not thousands of people in her time to have such a horrendous reputation.

To be honest - from things I've heard - she was a 100% bint before she even got famous!

In a way, it's quite impressive really to succeed in alienating that many people. Must take real dedication. Just think if she'd used all that energy for something more positive.....

You know the odd thing is - before she had her nose job - she DID have a decent (very distinctive) singing voice! And I'm not talking that sh/te song 'Ooh You Are A Mucky Kid' or even 'Alfie'.

Before her nose job, Cilla looked very like an aunt of mine-i.e. not very good looking. Not that she was great-looking afterwards, but it was some improvement.

Maybe this is Cilla's problem. After her nose job - her voice went down the pan (it went truly crap) - and she's hated herself ever since!!! Just a thought. Its why Barbra Streisand has never had anything done to her nose - as she had the sense to realise that it would have an adverse effect on her singing voice (having said that - I think Barbra Streisand looks fab anyway - although I have heard she can be a bit of a temperamental bint). But - unlike Cilla - at least Streisand has talent.

You know - maybe Cilla should have a thread all of her own - I bet all the other miserable-git-celebrities feel a bit miffed that she's hogging their time!

She had a fine voice in the mid 60s, but has sounded like a foghorned voice cabaret singer ever since.....maybe that partially explains her nastiness and bitterness.

I met Patrick Stewart and he was a miserable turd, and incredibly short. A friend and I waited for him outside a theatre after a performance and there was a weird superfan waiting for him too, with a special diary of all her encounters with him. When he spoke to her, she told him that his scottish accent had sounded northern, it was a very tense moment. He looked flumoxed and I tried to change the subject by asking him who is favourite x-man was (much to the extreme mirth of my friend) and he stalked off.
A friend of mine works for a West End Theatre and worked on the "Waiting for Godot" production with him and Sir Ian Mckellan in it. Apparently he's not a diva but can be very abrupt and tactless to people on occasion. McKellan was lovely the first time but when the second run of the show with Roger Rees - he was grumpy.

Ralph Fienes is a top bloke apparently though and the Dames Maggie Smith and Judi Dench gave the staff so much champagne that my mate (who isn't a big drinker) was giving it away for months.

To be honest, I would take the opinions of people on this thread with a pinch of salt. While some might have met celebrities, their opinions could be based on less than a minute with the celebrity or could be based on a dislike they have anyway.
It depends I think - I think if someone is repeatedly touted as being nice or nasty then there's something to it. Active rudeness, especially at an event where they are paid to be nice, counts for more than 'blanking' which could be just not noticing. Mixed accounts could mean the person is moody, two-faced or just that like the rest of us they have good days and bad.

Good summary.

My mum met Sue Barker at Wimbledon many years ago and said she was very rude! My mum asked for an autograph and Sue made a fuss about it saying "I have got a party to go to, you know" which is really rude!
