The lovely Anastacia
The youngster: - he's met pop stars before but been suitably unimpressed. Today however, he was intent on getting Will Young to sign his autograph book, I didn't hold out too much hope as I had encountered this pop idol before.
The first signatories to show their faces were McFly, refreshingly friendly and unassuming they made sure they had kissed and signed for all their fans and took time to speak. They signed the youngster's book and wrote some witticisms on a canvas for yours truly, nice bunch of lads especially Dougie who looks like he could've jumped ship straight from Westlife.
Matt Goss strolled in later, I think he has the same disease that a few other Celebs have contracted, as he has a hat permanently stuck to his bonce. Think JK, Badly drawn boy and Victor from Big Brother. I met Matt about a month ago just before his kitchen endeavor and he is a very polite, nice guy though. The youngster collared him for a sig. and I didn't bother as Matt had already scrawled for me. I later spoke to a waiting driver who told me he once booted the Bros boys out of his limo into a crowded Oxford street because they wouldn't take their feet off the seats. They were ejected to the sounds of "We'll get mobbed" How things change. Matt is taking part in Hell's kitchen, probably did well there as he's had a decade learning to make humble pie.
The lovely Rachel Stevens popped out after a bone soaking shower descended, I again decided not to hassle her as we have met before and she is suitably lovely, I didn't want to get all doe eyed in front of the youngster. He however was bowled over and cleverly waited by her car door so she couldn't get passed his 3 foot frame and autograph book. He told me after he thought she was lovely but was possibly wearing too much make up. Hey, a nine year old critic!
WILL YOUNGWill Young was expected and finally strolled out after about 3 hours. I was begging the youngster to go home but he kept me hanging there with the temptation that Will would appear 2 minutes after we left and our wait would have been in vain, so I held on. I should have known better. Will did his normal trick of getting straight in his car and ignoring his loyal fans that had waited in the raging weather for up to 4 hours, How to win friends eh! The youngster was decidedly and rightly disgusted with his behavior
