Ah the only celeb that I saw on a regular basis was Fred the weather man and I definitely didn't have a crush on him. grin

He is not. I was obsessed.

He lived next to my uncle when I had this almighty crush. I used to stand outside his house hoping to see him.

Then one night I went to a BBQ at my uncle's and Alan was there! I couldn't talk to him, just sat staring at him all night. Everyone was laughing at me as I kept saying over and over "its Alan Smith! Alan Smith is here, Alan Smith is eating the same burgers as me!"

He came over and said hello and I thought I would faint blush

As often as I could get away with ScarletLady02. I think it may have started a bit of a vampire obsession too. blushgrin

SPsFanjoLovesItGangnamStyle Mon 08-Oct-12 11:45:26

Alan Smith I obviously had no taste

ScarletLady02 Mon 08-Oct-12 11:44:40

Oh TheOneWithTheHair - did you watch The Lost Boys 10 times a day? I did for a while >_<

I always preferred Kiefer in that though.

FutTheShuckUp Mon 08-Oct-12 11:44:12

Mine was Nathan Moore from brother beyond.
And I still would oh hell yes.

TheOneWithTheHair Mon 08-Oct-12 11:41:58

He was my first crush.

Oh the daydreams...........

SPsFanjoLovesItGangnamStyle Mon 08-Oct-12 11:40:32

For a few years from 7 upwards I loved Alan Smith and Lee Bowyer when they played for Leeds.

My crushes haven't got better with age either as its Russell Howard at the moment blush

Oh and I loved mekhi Phifer in ER. He was brilliant.

Fakebook Mon 08-Oct-12 11:38:05

This was my first crush:

I used to find pictures of him in the newspaper television section and put them in a secret place at the bottom of my wardrobe!

ScarletLady02 Mon 08-Oct-12 11:36:40

Oh and Mekhi Pfeiffer doesn't always play nice characters. Have you not seen Dawn Of The Dead or Clockers?

TheOneWithTheHair Mon 08-Oct-12 11:35:56

<backs quietly away from whistlestopcafe > grin

But urgggh at snogging Basil Brush!!

ScarletLady02 Mon 08-Oct-12 11:34:57

My first crush was Keanu Reeves, I think I was about uncle knew his next door neighbour so I've got a personalised signed photo...I still cherish it as it's a photo from Point Break.

whistlestopcafe Mon 08-Oct-12 11:32:24

I had a crush on Basil Brush when I was that age. I would blush whenever he came on TV. I had fantasies of having cosy Saturday evenings snuggled up on the sofa and I wondered what it would feel like to snog him. blush

At 7, DD1 had crushes on David Tennant and Gethin Jones. By 9, she'd moved on to JLS.

At 11 she has pictures of Mo Farrah all over her bedroom walls. Now, he seems a lovely man. He's a talented runner. But as a pin up?

nettie Mon 08-Oct-12 11:25:49

Scott from Thunderbirds!

Xnedra Mon 08-Oct-12 11:23:25

My 7 year old informed me she's marrying David Tennant. Good taste. grin

HeadfirstForHalos Mon 08-Oct-12 11:22:17

Just snorted out loud at He-Man, I'm glad nobody else is the the house!

YY to Andy Crane, and Philip Schofield! I must have needed glasses as a child grin

FolkGhoul Mon 08-Oct-12 11:19:30

I've just remembered my huge crush on Luke Skywalker!

FolkGhoul Mon 08-Oct-12 11:17:09

Ah that explains it a bit!

I had no idea who he was. grin

Probably has more going for him than Shaggy!

TheOneWithTheHair Mon 08-Oct-12 10:55:42

Ooh yes to Indiana Jones. smile

peeriebear Mon 08-Oct-12 10:54:49

Mine were Indiana Jones and He-Man!
