Ugh. Jim Davidson. What a cock!

This thread has my favourite post on mumsnet ever: 'the world's most stuck up nail technician' about Steven Gerrards's wife

Really interesting reading this thread from the start in 2008 esp references to letchy Jimmy Saville and Max Clifford.

I too can confirm Bob Geldolf as a rude and arrogant git when he played when I was at Uni. Madness and the Pogues on the other hand were great.

My friends sister also told me Jerry Springer is horrific to work with.

I read Emma Watson as Emma Thomson and was hmm

Two people have told me Emma Watson is a diva.

I met Jacqueline Wilson the kids author when I worked at a bookshop and she was doing a signing. She was rude and horrible to the staff but nice to all the kids thankfully.

I wouldn't buy her books now though.

Interesting how the same names seem to crop up time and again as being arses....No smoke without fire and all that hmm

Which has made me really disappointed as Floella Benjamin seems to be a right cow according to everyone! I met her whilst I was a student as she was the chancellor or something and she was lovely! She called me "daaahhling" (in non-patronising way I thought!) and said my hair looked "beautiful". Feel gutted after reading this thread!sad

Clive Anderson walks his dog in the park near where I live - always looks moody but in fairness once when my toddler (who was having a run around the park) got excited about his dog he did stop and let ds pat it and I made minor small talk about the dogs name and the weather. He was just a bit of a grumpy old man. I was a bit embarrassed but he obviously realized that an 18 month old didn't recognize him and just saw a cute dog.
others I can remember now -
Billy Bragg lovely and funny.
Daisy Lowe - horrible, snotty.

A celeb but a celeb's wife; I worked for 5 years with Clive Anderson's wife at a London hospital. She is without doubt the most vile person I have ever met.

I've met a few famous folk through my airport work. Thankfully, none of them have been unpleasant:

Jools Holland. The same in person as on television.

Patrick Moore. Ditto the above. Larger than life. Eccentric.

Paul McCartney. Very affable. Great considering how poorly Linda was at the time.

The Eagles. Admittedly I saw little of them but their air stewardess promised me they were very well behaved wink .

John Major. Somewhat tight-lipped but he was in the middle of an election campaign.

I once passed Roger Daltrey in an Isle of Man hotel corridor. We exchanged "good mornings" and carried on our separate ways.

The guy who played Lofty in Eastenders - walked straight into him with my head down in the rain - he was sweet, apologetic (though my fault), softly spoken and very shy. He was very tall and also gorgeous (which was a surprise). Ben Elten was lovely too.
A disappointing one was Ronnie Drew of the Dubliners, who was a hero of mine. Not horrible but grabbed my pen and gave me his autograph fast when I hadn't asked for it and seemed a bit arrogant - in stark contrast to the other lovely, friendly members of the group who stopped to chat.
Two who have been met by several people I know and are desrcibed as 'absolutely horrible and obnoxious' are Cilla Black and Mick Hucknall. Though by the looks of things that's a unanimous experience.

Horrible/nice celebrities that I have met -Paul Daniels = loud mouthed -tight arse dwarf, so up his own arse --Wendy Craig --stuck up rude bitch----Ulrika Jonsson- comes across curt and snobbish. Scary spice --hyper totally hyper, very very loud, but shes ok, not stuck-up. Max Beezley -charming (chatted me up lol) -Kevin Woodford (tv cook) -lovely lovely man, a true gentleman. Robert Lindsay and his wife Rosemary Ford - they are fine, just act ordinary. Lorraine Kelly - lovely lady, what you see is what you get, shes like that all the time, no front. Johnny Vegas (chatted me up hahah but he was totally pissed off his head) --very funny guy though.

I met little Mo off Eastenders 'sss husband ... Trevor was it? 'Orrible cunt he was on the soap. In real life?

Met loads of famous/celebs down the years. One horror that sticks in the mind is Sharon Osbourne. Way before she was a media 'star' and had her haggard bitch-face on tv screens all over the world, she was merely Ozzys wife and manager (though no less of a loud-mouthed, sanctimonious twat). She wasnt the plastic glamour-puss either-looked like she shopped in bulk at DH Evans, but left her manners at the check-out. Over-loud, boorish, tedious, and rude. Hasnt changed a bit in 30 years...

ArthurComix Thu 01-Jan-15 11:04:23

Uri would that be W*yne C*yne from The Flaming Lips? No surprise there.
At a Midsummer Tube in 1986 in the Green Room, sharing a table were Stephen Fry, Ian Botham, and Gary Glitter. Happy to say I spilt my (and a few others) drinks over both Glitter and Fry.

Saw a very tall Nick Knowles at the Baby Show last year with very "quaffed, blow dried hair" parading around like a real stag with his pregnant "girlfriend" on his arm. I was exhibiting and he walked by I smiled and said hi ...both just blanked us. My illusions were shattered sad

Member302299 Tue 16-Dec-14 00:12:41

Mumsnet never forgets! Be a rude celeb at your peril!

AlpacaLypse Sat 13-Dec-14 20:04:25

Has it really been running since 2008?!

Secretblackandmidnighthag Sat 13-Dec-14 19:50:05

Just sat and read this thread from the beginning (2008). Very weird & creepy to read the one about Jimmy Saville with benefit of what we now know.

LeopardInABobbleHat Sat 13-Dec-14 19:15:48

Val McDermid was a bit full of herself and her little hangers-on.

diamondiva Sat 13-Dec-14 18:59:19

Great thread..have spent half the day reading through it..

I can only confirm Lineker is a total obnoxious tosspot as I have had the misfortune to meet him.

I am glad that scumbag Geldof has been mentioned a few times and I can only confirm this from what I have heard.

Uri Geller was very nice and emailed me in the past.

Madeline Bell is fab
