Nice:

Simon Fuller - Always polite, well mannered and always remembers 'insignificant' people's names when he really doesn't need to.

Simon Cowell - polite, charming and engaging.

Emma Bunton - always 'on', chatty, smiley and great with fans.

Carrie Underwood - Sweet and polite but... a bit dull. Only encountered her once, though. Probably jet lagged.

Geri Halliwell - mad as a box of frogs but on a 'good day' she is an amazing person to be around. Infectious, inspiring, charming, smart, if she 'likes' the look/aura/vibe of you - she will remember your name and greet you like a long lost best friend every time she see's you. Dirty laugh that is very infectious!

David Beckham - Even more stunning in real life, very polite, unassuming, down-to-earth. Bit dull for me, but always seems like a great chap.

Victoria Beckham - won't hear a bad word against Vicky B. FABULOUS at all times - very petite and pretty in person. Quite smiley (though she often hides her mouth or looks around for cameras if she giggles). VERY professional and business savvy - if you're working for her and not doing your job properly she has no problem telling you, not much gets past her in terms of business or money but always plays fair. Here come the oft' said ones - witty, funny, dry sense of humor and self deprecating. Classics. But true.

Lewis Hamilton - Not met the chap but watched him sign what must have been well over 40 autographs and have his picture taken almost each time with a smile on his face after saying to a colleague that he was in a rush to meet his step-mum! awwww.

Jennifer Saunders: Sometimes shy but very kind, generous and naturally hilarious.


Not so nice:

Geri Halliwell: Not pleasant to be around on a bad day. The stories I could tell! Has been quite rude even to fans who have waited for hours to meet her on occasions - but usually feels bad afterwards. All in all a very compassionate person, heart is in the right place but temperament up and down like a ping pong ball.

Judy Craymer: Very elusive, borderline rude. Not sure if she is self concious of has one hell of a superiority complex.

Andy Murray: Not impressed with Andy either time I encountered him. Uninterested in anyone but himself, balshy and 'allegedly' watched him say "for f*cks sake", in my opinion, in the face of a PA over some minor miscommunication over his preferred beverage.

Mel B: Demanding, rude, loud, unreasonable, obnoxious, money-grabbing harridan.
I don't understand the comments about Andy Murray as they don't appear very articulate although you have apparently encountered him more than once. Is it possible for you to rephrase them? Looking forward to any clarification you can provide.

Or maybe feeling unwell. Or very (as it looks to me) shy. Or all sorts of things - people have bad days.
This. From what I've seen of her in the media, I really can't imagine J.K Rowling to be purposely nasty.

I tried to word my comments regarding Andy quite carefully as, for many reasons, one can get into an awful lot of trouble for revealing alleged facts about a public figure especially when witnessed in a 'private', professional environment.

This is an account of watching Andy Murray being rude according to Kenny12.

Allegedly, I have encountered Andy Murray twice and I was not impressed with the behaviour that I witnessed on either occasion.

In my opinion, he seemed to be uninterested in anyone other than himself. Very childish. He came across as very bolshy (stroppy) to almost everyone around him apart from his mother.

In my opinion, I believe that I allegedly watched Andy Murray shout "for f*cks sake" in the face of a young Personal Assistant in what I would call an aggressive manner - simply because she didn't prepare his beverage in the correct way.

Allegedly.

Allegedly.

Allegedly.

Allegedly.

Andy Murray is the most disliked sportsperson ever. Eveyone I know cant stand him.Hopefully he will retire soon and rid us of his presence for good.

I met Diana Vickers backstage at a concert once. She was bloody hilarious and very, very sweet.

I met Freddie Starr once - creepy letch, made my skin crawl
Very perceptive, although I've never liked him anyway. He's currently being linked to a big news story at the moment and this in the Guardian:

Princess Eugenie was on my course at uni. Seemed okay from a distance but I heard a few interesting rumours that would not sit well with Granny!

Not as extreme as to cause a scandal in Belgravia, I hope.

Nice:

Michelle Collins
Letitia Dean
Larry Lamb
Barry Howard from Hi-De-Hi
Andrew Hayden-Smith - spent over half an hour chatting to him once, and he and his bf remembered me when I saw then again.
Dave Cash (former Radio 1 DJ)
Colin Berry (former Radio 1&2 DJ)
Buster Bloodvessel from Bad Manners

Awful

Lenny Henry - Did not like attention by the public
Dawn French - exceptionally rude, worked at a local supermarket to them a few years ago and she made one of the staff cry.
Nicki Kelly from Hi-De-Hi - looks like an old hag nowadays and walks round with a smell under her nose.

J K Rowling.

At a book signing i got dragged along too, very poor attitude and sneery,seemed to hate the idea f meeting the fans. Was put in a foul mood by a parent who loudly criticised her attitude towards her child, Rowling stormed off in a huff.

Spitefull ignorant woman.
We all have bad days. Also, she has suffered with depression in the past... I don't think she is as rude normally, as she was that day. Thanks for the comment though

Discusting, that actually made me feel sick. In anyway shocked at what has been rumoured?

JK Rowling - Heard a story first hand from someone who worked in an Edinburgh hotel that she was vile on the phone, because she wasn't happy with the hotel procedures on something that simply couldn't be changed.

FULL of "don't you realise who I am" attitude.

I met LH very recently and found him to be really decent guy and very down to earth, completely unstarry.

Carol Vorderman - Met her on the Countdown set when I went on a trip with media studies. Hmmm, she came across as cold, uninterested and very business like. She did look fit though.

Mariella frostup has a bad reputation in TV. Apparently is very difficult veering towards downright nasty.

Served her a few times in my work and she is lovely,even hung around whilst a mate ran away to find a piece of paper for her to sign

And that voice is as sexy in real life.

Lots of people having negative encounters with these two over the years it seems, especially with Dawn. Looks like they can join Cilla and Lulu when it comes to there being so many negative stories about their attitude that they must be truly unpleasant.

My mum saw the funny side to be honest. She came out rolling her eyes and tutting, told us what had been said and we all fell about laughing. We thought it was a bit pathetic but with Freddie being Freddie, we weren't too shocked.

I met Lenny Henry by chance almost thirty years ago on a pier in Blackpool, think he had just come out of a show he was in (not one we'd been to). I was with my mum and dad and my gran, who was in a wheelchair and was very starstruck, so we said hello and he was absolutely lovely. He chatted to my gran for a few minutes and was very smiley and pleasant and even pushed her wheelchair for a few yards, which she loved!

We parted company with a very nice impression of him. Either he has changed over the last three decades or that was a good day, or he is in fact actually an ok bloke. Who knows?

I met Dawn French a couple of times over the years, was very pleasant on both occasions
