This is a question Never Meet Your Heroes

They're bound to disappoint - like the time we booked Wayne Hussey for the B3ta Radio Show. Five minutes before we're due to record, Wayne
phones, lost on the M25 with his Brazilian wife screaming in the background. Not so much the King of Goth, as a hen-pecked flake.

had the misfortune of meeting Ian Kelsey (one time Emmerdale and Casualty has-been) outside a club in Leeds. I say met, more a case of he tried to barge to the front. All it took was one "FUCK OFF TO THE BACK" from me, and off he toddled!!

also have a photo of me n jimmy saville, but it presents me in a bad way!!

apologies for depth, but not for length or girth

Minnie Driver is a twat...
About 14 years ago, I did some work as an extra on a shit Channel 4 film called 'God on the Rocks' starring Minnie Driver and 'Auf Weidersehen, Pet' actor Bill Patterson. I must have been 15 at the time and got a massive 25 per day and a few days off school. Nice.

Bill was a real nice bloke, he chatted to all us grunts, posed for pics and signed autographs. He didn't even kick off when I rode into him when I lost control the half-tonne 1920's bicycle I had to ride for the scene. He even let me ride in the 'Stars' van back to base (all the other extras had to walk). Not once did he try to touch my tail or my bottom.

Minnie Driver, on the other hand, was a complete fucking prick. Acting like a diva and treating everyone as if they were tramp-cocks as she lovied around the director.

At one point she came up to me, giggling like a stupid little girl, then pretended to be a passer-by (even though her face was practically screaming "look at me, I'm Minnie Driver, how lucky are you?!") and asked what the film was all about. I just looked at her as if she was the most pathetic brick-faced bint in the whole wide world.

You know what? I think she still is...

Also Roni Size
My mate idolises the guy. She was more than peeved when he refused to sign her cleavage.

Bugger!
Just remembered this - far too late.

But I did meet a presenter from regional news show - I think it was North-West Tonight. Her name was Chrys somebody - (I think that's the wrong spelling.

Anyway, I knew her boyfriend and at a party he suddenly appeared half-naked from a bedroom and yelled:

"Look at this!!"

So we all had a look in the bedroom and there was Chrys - bollock-naked with a ballgag in her mouth and tightly wrapped in clingfilm....

I think they finished that night....

Timmy Mallett
rachelswipe - gah, I'm glad you said that. I was on the Wide Awake Club, too. I had the temerity to ask Timmy for his autograph. "SAY PLEASE!" he barked. I did, meekly. He signed something illegible and then walked off muttering something which I was far too young to understand.

And for the past 22 years I thought it was just me he didn't like, rather than his being a sociopathic weirdo.

Hmmm
Looking at some of these, especially the last one about Timmy Mallet, I propose a new QOTW for a later date:

"Which TV 'personality' would you most like to beat into a bloody pulp and why?"

wish this was mine...
... but sadly it was the same friend whose supermarket abusing father won me the QOTW on "Lost" all those months ago.

as a young child of about 10, she was thrilled to be chosen to be on "Wackaday", featuring the ever lovely and popular timmy mallett. she was also pleasantly thrilled at how easy the questions were, and was racing ahead.

until the commercial break, when timmy bounded over to the kids. when he reached my friend, he dropped his friendly tv persona like a cup of cold sick.

"for god's sake shut up and give the others a chance little girl!" he hissed evilly, before grinning at the others and waltzing off.

she was so upset that she lost after that. timmy mallett. what a twunt.

but then, we all knew that anyway didn't we?!

PROPER metal
Met Slayer at ozzfest 2002, and they were thoroughly lovely lads. Very disappointing, I wasn't held down and fiddled with at all. also met LostProphets, who were as I expected them to be- rude, self congratulatory in the extreme and thoroughly BORING. (Met Faye from Steps too, who is a lovely lady and didn't mind me drunkenly shouting 'WE HAVE THE SAME NAME' at her at least five times.)

Oh, and Daveh- it's Ronnie James Dio, and he's a lord amongst men. Well, in my books.


Ah, I must edit this, due to people stamping that we're not doing it properly. I met Spiderman and he stabbed me in the eye with a pencil.

You're Keith!
Got inadvertently knocked to the floor by Ewen Macintosh (aka Keith from The Office) on Tottenham Court Road.

I looked up and saw this big chap, realised who it was and said "You're Keith!"

He left me on the floor.
