“Nearly met Chesney Hawkes”? You should let Viz know about that highly mediocre non-encounter.

I saw Andy Serkis at the Folkestone Eurotunnel last week. He was telling one of the blokes in a high-vis jacket that he doesn’t give out autographs and didn’t appreciate being approached. What a charmer.

Within an hour I bumped into 3 sets of identical twins.

One set at Elm Park before getting on the train. The next was outside Bond St. Then the last pair was actually on The District Line heading back to Elm Park. All 3 pairs were in there 60's (not that it means a lot) :P

I played at a wedding with my stupid band yesterday. Miss United Kingdom was one of the guests, and was dancing right in front of me all the time we played. Definitely fancied me, but I reckon I could do better.

Detectorists, Eastenders and Press Gang actress Lucy Benjamin having a family holiday at the same hotel as us in Corfu. Unfortunately her poor hubbie took a massive tumble possibly caused by the damp weather today as he had his arm in a sling this afternoon.

Ian Rush of Liverpool fame with his family at the same holiday resort as me, spoke to him a bit, came across as a decent bloke.

Peter Grotier at a friends BBQ, played in goal for us, 50 or so caps 1969-1974, played with all the greats. Was brilliant listening to his stories of that time, came through with Sir Trev, proper lovely bloke :thup:

Cleo Rocos and her mum today at Vesuvio Caffe, Limehouse E14.

Exchanged pleasantries, but couldn't chat further as she was just leaving with her frail, but equally glamorous mum, who must be in her 80's. Cleo looks great for her age (56), decked out all in white with her really thick, voluptuous red hair. She's lovely and you would.
