whilst serving on HMS Aisne a visit to Villefranche near Nice several of us ashore met Sir John Mills and his wife and we (about 20 of us were invited to his
villa. His daughter Juliett was there but we were all disappointed that Hayley was back in Britain.  He was anabsolute gentleman and being a ex-serviceman
got on so well with everyone - They dont make them like him anymore - compared to Princess Margaret on the Royal Yacht - what a Madam

WORKING IN LOndon I regularly see Robert Vaughan and all the Hustle team, the Ashes to Ashes peeps (IE phillip glennister, and keely hawkes) Many pop and rock stars status quo, michael buble, vanessa may, etc all the eastenders team, the actors in Spooks and the Bill plus many many more. And its not even a tv studio, just a normal everday business complex where they do lots of filming! The music connection is one of the biigest studios i the country for rehearsing in!
Makes a great story when the person behind you in the queue for dinner is someone like Cliff Richard or Chrissie Hind!!! or just last week Snow Patrol!

  Peterm's mention of James Robertson Justice reminds me that he once threatened to pull my beard out hair by hair. Mind you, I had carved up his Bentley in my Zodiac, playing Z cars probably.

I was playing in a band one night in Surfers Paradise and in a break went to the bar and met my idol Ted Mulry who was sitting having a drink. I actually played a Ted Mulry Gang song in front of the lead singer of that group. For those who don't know who Ted is here is a link to one of his songs.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IMBLhdv_b6k&feature=related and this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AExjHPZypk8&feature=related Unfortunatly he passed away a few years back. What a great Aussie band.

Not sure I should be allowed on this thread as I work in the entertainment profession, and years (and years) ago I was a (struggling) actor.   ;)

Met Margeret Rutherford when she was getting her shopping out of a taxi and offered to carry it into the house
She invited me in and gave me a drink, ( Port ) I was invited back to many of her home parties.   She was a wonderful
woman and everybody thought very highly of her.

Myself and the good lady wife used to work at Silverstone, we met many famous drivers, Stirling Moss, James Hunt, Nigel Mansell, Derek Warwick, Nelson Piquet, Ayrton Senna, Derek Bell to name just a few. Also Noel Edmunds, Dave Lee Travers and Mike Smith all of whom where involved in motor racing. Jimmy Saville attended the handover of an electric wheelchair to a patient from Stoke Mandeville Hospital which I and friends played for 24 hours to raise the money.

Never mind all these Z-list celebs; I once shared a bowl of peanuts with Nyree Dawn Porter (she of the Forsyte Saga first time around) and I can now die happy.  :P

  Was that in Gerrards Cross, bigH? Often used to see Maragret Rutherford in the village. Leslie, and more rarely Dennis, Compton used to come into the Black Horse in Fulmer.
