I'm not famous. But my husband is. He wrote a book grin

jennie0412 Mon 26-Oct-20 22:37:52

@TheFormerPorpentinaScamander do people recognise him in the street?

Erm. Maybe. He's not my real husband. But my user names husband. I guess the actor that portrays him is recognised.

jennie0412 Mon 26-Oct-20 22:42:34

Oh! blush I just embarrassed myself there..

In real life I don't have a husband. Famous or otherwise

jennie0412 Mon 26-Oct-20 22:51:43

My dad was a famous footballer, I had a very different childhood from my school friends

I'm not in the least bit famous. Thank goodness.

What team?

I'm not famous like a tv personality or a film star. In fact I'm not 'famous' at all. But I'm recognised in the street sometimes, people ask if I'm who they think I am when I'm on the phone to them and have given my name (sometimes!) and I was once asked for a selfie. Embarrassing

So you won't know me. But you might know of me and you'll know my alter ego if you follow the thing that's made me relatively well known.

Ooh mysterious grin

Flamingo you're Peppa Pig and I claim my fiver <puts out hand>

Does anyone else come on these threads in the desperate hope that someone famous will out themselves and you can then go to sleep satisfied?grin I know itll never happen.

BetsyBigNose Mon 26-Oct-20 23:43:00

@FelicityFlamingo - are you Mrs Hinch?

gchali Mon 26-Oct-20 23:45:12

@thecartofhelena Which team?

I'm not famous, but my mum was well known in my small home town because she taught at the same primary school for 30 years and so taught many of the local population. When I first moved back here with my new husband, I did warn him that he would have to get used to the fact that half the population knew her, but he didn't believe me. Not until he decided to join the Lions shortly after moving and at his first meeting, 4 separate people came up to him and said 'oh, so you're Mrs X's son in law!

sortoffamous Tue 27-Oct-20 00:36:54

NC for this obviously. I have recently become a bit famous I would say. I'm recognised quite a bit, I've been on TV, and I've met quite a few what I would call 'real' famous people. I'm not sure I like it though.

jennie0412 Tue 27-Oct-20 00:37:53

That's exciting! What don't you like about it?

No, I just expect lots of 'name changed for this' and then blah blah blah, as is the norm for these threads grin

Betsy - I was going to guess that! Are you Darren Brown?

Bannister Tue 27-Oct-20 00:48:35

@KateWinslet, that was a really strange planecrash film you made with Iris Elba. (Were you both on glue?) grin

QuinoaWest Tue 27-Oct-20 00:52:52

I'm the REAL Banksy.

Shh.

@Bannister I couldn't possibly say without outing myself blush but yes
