Okay it's been a while since i started a thread so I thought this might be fun. Do any of you have any claims to fame? Know anyone famous? Related to a celebrity or ever met one? Even just having their autographs.

Oh and fancying a celebrity or having the same first name dont count :xyx

I'm a published author.


I know Bam Margera and Lisa Scott Lee from Steps.


Who remembers when I went on Talk Sport and barraged Alex Shane after taking the mick out of Shah? Then I made him sing the Angle theme, making an even bigger tit out of himself.......

As well as my friendships with footballing SUPERSTARS Chic Pearson (Falkirk, on loan to Linlithgow Rose), Graeme Weir (Hearts), Mark Kerr and Lee Millar (Both Falkirk), I can also claim to be related to former England and Wolves captain Billy Wright, who has his own statue outside the Molineaux.


Oh, and I know a model that used to go out with Lorenzo Amoruso. Er...I have José Quitongo's autograph...um...I met Mio Krivocapitch in Hamilton once...I've been on Your On Sky Sports about 3 times. And I met Wayne Rooney before he was famous, when I was on trial at Everton. Well, at least I think I did, I was training with his age group's team, and unless he was injured or having the day off, I could have even touched him, talked to him or nutmegged him.


And of course, it was my email that made Shah sing on TalkSport. Alex Shane called me Croy-Aaaahg.

Hehe, gotta love the way Russ wrote Croy- Aaaahg, i can really picture that!.

Anyways i have a list, its not a fantastic list but i thought meeting everyone one of them was really cool!


Stuart Pearce - I met him when he was playing for Forest after he got that bad injury and came down to the Meadow to play a reserve match against Shrewsbury Town, after the match i met him , had a short chat and he autographed my match program.


Brian Clough - The same time as above, but he just shook my hand and said "hello young lady" then he went, :)


Keith Curle, Fitzroy Simpson, Mark Crossley i met all these at Maine Road, on the pitch actually, my mate shouted them over and they came, i have pictures with all three. I remember telling Mark Crossley to let some goals in as City were playing Forest. Im still amazed they came over, i think it was because we were young, i couldn't get over how tall Mark Crossley actually was.


Emelyn Hughes, Alan Kennedy, Frank Worthington, Terry McDermot and David Johnson. I met these when the Emelyn Hughes All Stars took on our local team for charity. My dad got too drink with them all, i just got to listen, but we spent ages with them, they were good fun with some great stories.


Jack and Vera Duckworth and Percy Sugden - I met these whilst on a tour of Granada Studios. Percy Sugden was really funny totally opposite from the character he portrayed in the Street. I have his autobiography signed to me, and a picture with him.

Jack and Vera were also signing autographs, so i have there autograph, but i didnt get a pic, as i'd used all my film in the camera.. damn lol


Steven Pinder - who played Max Farnham in Brookie. I met him in Chester, where he lives whilst out shopping and yes i stopped him for an autograph, he was really gracious and didnt seem to mind!


Karl Howman - from Brushstrokes plus the Flash ads, i met in Blackpool, in the street whilst on my hols!


Ive met lots of British wrestlers but theres too many to go into detail, aswell as the forign talent we've had over.


I had a wave just for me off the queen mum, it was quite funny actually as all my family had gone to line the streets when she visited but i couldn't be bothered and went to the bookies instead but on my way back her car came past, so i just stood there on my own and waved, and she waved back hehe, the best bit was my family had a terrible view and were dead miffed that i got a wave!


I never managed to get through to Talksports Talkwrestling show, but i did get two emails read out lol!


But i did get through to Jimmy Wag on GMR, to talk about City! don't say whos that :D


Thats about it!

Russ' Rooney story could be pretty damn impressive someday.


One of Englands 1966 World Cup winners, Alan Ball, told me that I had what it takes to be a professional footballer, this goes to show excactly why he's such a terrible football manager.


I met Bobby Robson coming out of Highbury when he was England manager.


I used to go to School and play football every day with the lead singer out of the Dum Dums.


I saw Dr Legg from Eastenders catching the tube at Oxford Circus.


One haloween I threw an egg at Bob Mortimers Accoutancy Office window, I also saw Vic Reeves buying a telly in Dixons and when we were up town one day, the future Mrs KJ told Vic Reeves that he had bigger tits than her, and he laughed, also when Mrs KJ worked in an optitions she used to dispense Mr Mortimers glasses.
