    Jimmy Saville

    I saw him today, sat outside a cafe in Carlisle smoking a BFO cigar.

    TBH I don't subscribe to the cult of celebrity in any shape or form, and just see 'famous' people as someone I've never met but know the name of.

    What's your take on 'celebrity' and how do you act if you see a 'famous' person?

    Probably point at them and say to Sam "Isn't that (insert name)??"

    Then life goes on. Not something I give much thought to tbh.

    Perhaps because you're an AOC celebrity?

    I'm a bit like that too, I see no reason why someone should be treated any differently because they've been in a film, TV show etc.

    I'm somewhat biased towards celebs....i hate them.....most do half the work for x amount the wage, so i'd be more likely to blantantly not give them the satisfaction of being noticed.


    I know i'm such a witch

    I suppose we all hve different people we would class as a 'celebrity'. I know my sister goes crazy over the Big Brother contestants. Where as for me I only get starstruck if i's someone I look up to. I remember meeting Michael Owen a few years ago and not really caring much about it, however I met Dave Lombardo (Slayer, Fantomas), Thomas Lang (Various) and Chad Smith (RHCP) at university and was completely speechless.

    I've met a couple of Z-listers and I wasn't as starstruck as I thought I would be. I had a bit of a chat and then that was it. No fuss.

    I'm not how I would be if I bumped into someone really famous though. I'd like to think I wouldn't care all that much but you never can tell until you get put in the situation.
