Have You Ever Met Anyone Famous ?

Recommended Posts

I met Paul McCartney while he was having a coffee with his band “ Wings” at Sheffield University. I served him a coffee when I had a part time job there.

I was once at a dance at The Locarno. Ronnie Hilton had been on the stage singing and came onto the dance floor to sign autographs afterwards . I walked past him and he tried to catch my eye, but I knew he was married so didn’t respond.

Good for you,  takes a strong-minded woman not to have her head turned by a celebrity

In 1993 - or maybe '94 - I went holiday to Barbados with a friend from work and stayed with her family who lived in Speightstown.  All the tourists would bake themselves lobster-red on the beach all day, but the local residents would come out for a dip in the sea when the sun was going down and all the tourists had gone in.  During these twilight swims I got nattering to a couple of very old, obviously very wealthy American ladies, who would come out of their posh beach-side villa and bathe in the sea for a while. It was only after I'd been chatting away to them for several days that I found out that I'd been talking to Claudette Colbert - a huge Hollywood movie star from the 1930's/40's  - and her partner, who she'd been in a relationship with for many years. I just thought of them as a nice old gay couple and I was gobsmacked when I found out I'd been gossiping for days with an old Hollywood movie legend.
