Hi Nadia. I have met Dan Jones, Sam Willis and James Daybell which I doubt are names generally known. They are all historians and are regularly on tv. I have great respect for anyone who excels in their field and their books and documentaries have taught me loads.

Working In a theatre I've met a fair few celebrities.

I have mentioned In another post how I beat a Nolan Sister at Karaoke.

One for the older generation here - about 25 years ago I presented Yehudi Menuhin with a birthday cake.

Played and lost darts to Nick Berry (ex Eastenders)

Walked past Gary Glitter backstage (If only I'd known then what I know now I'd of thumped him, twice)

3 quarters of Bucks Fizz blanked me, despite me making them lunch.

I despise celebs who think they are better than everyone else by virtue of money and fame. Why is it so easy for humans to let these things go to their head.

Lynibis Indeed, I started out acting starstruck, but as I got to know that many of these celebrities think they are gods gift, I soon cooled.

Of course many of them were absolutely lovely.

Nadiaparveen He was a Conductor and Violinist, he happened to be performing a concert on his birthday.

I believe he died around 1999, around 3 years after the birthday cake.

I met Ed Sheeran many years ago at a tiny little gig he was playing in Southampton about a month before he became famous.. we got to hug him (Regretted that because he was DRENCHED in sweat 🤣) and take photos with him after the gig.. it was so small he spent half of it stood on a bar stool in the middle of the crowd playing his guitar and singing without a mic / speakers

So jealous!. I saw him at St James park in 2018. Really enjoyed it but me & my friend both said we'd loved to see him live in a more intimate setting.
