Have you met anyone famous?

I have an autograph from Gene Wilder and one from Patrick Dupont once the greatest star of International and French ballet... does that count?

Andy,

If you wouldn’t mind my asking, are you particularly well-off financially? You live in the same apartment building as Heather Mills’s sister? It’s a luxury sort of place?

If not, I find this somewhat disappointing. It was always an article of faith with me that if I ever became wealthy—certainly as wealthy as Ms. Mills is—, then automatically every member of my immediate family would be as well. I wouldn’t make it a begging type of thing either, making each one of them come to me every time they fancied buying something expensive. I’d just write each one a check for a few million.

In fairness to Ms. Mills, however, I don’t know the circumstances, and from what you say she certainly seems to care about her sister. Perhaps her sister won’t accept any sort of overly generous support from her. Or perhaps she has no desire to live any sort of ostentatious lifestyle.

Best,

Don

I have met:

Patsy Palmer and Michelle Collins from EastEnders at a charity walk many years ago in battersey park for Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Through family in Ireland i am related to two famous people. This is just through marriage of family members but still counts i think!! One is Pauline Mclynn better known for Mrs Doyle in Father Ted, i haven't had the chance to meet her unfortunately but i was invited to her wedding a few years back!!!! And the other is more of a quiet thing, but he does sing in a group of male singers. I have met the whole group and my cousin ( blood relative ) has been their friend since childhood and was best man at one of their weddings. Big Grin

I have also been Alan Fletcher's ( Dr Karl Kennedy from Neighbours ) personal security at a big gig he did at St Andrews. It was really cool.

Also met The Racounteurs, Echo And The Bunnymen, British Sea Power, Delays and The Prodigy from when i worked close protection security for T in the Park 2008

Also met Bloc Party and some ppl i dont even know like Glasvegas at the connect festival 2008 when i was in a fast reaction security team.

Cannot remember right now who else....

I been pretty lucky Big Grin

You imply that they have stopped watching Neighbours!! There really is nothing to actually do in St Andrews, therefore there really is a 'make your own entertainment' student scene. The regular appearance of celebrities (major and minor) in St Andrews provides important opportunities.

I missed Samuel L. Jackson due to freshers 'flu once.
