I have a really rubbish claim to fame

One of the contestants from the latest series of 'Love Island' keeps showing up under the people you may know section of Facebook. I'm assuming we must have mutual friends, she's hidden who she's friends with, so I'm not sure who but I do have a couple of friends who are from the same town as she is.

Can anyone out outdo that?

Form an orderly queue for autographs.

A few many years ago, my boyfriend was Stings 2nd cousin. Long before there tantric sex, but we were only kids.

My mum had an article published in the Scotsman Magazine in the 1980s.

I served kenn Dodd too and went around the shop with him to help him with his shopping so that makes us best friends right?

Should say .... before there was such a thing as tantric sex.

I went to school with the sister of the drummer from Bastille.... I guess that's more her claim to fame than mine.
