Sadly I have met him Celine, the difference is I am a bloke and you are female so our views will be always different. I would be nice to you if you were buying my calender but in a bar (like where I have met him a few times) you would be less interesting to me! So far up his own its a wonder he can walk. Lets leave it there because I don't want to fall out with someone I don't know but I won't be changing my opinion to suit your one off experience. Have a good Christmas and enjoy your calender!

Nobody ever lost money by under-estimating the taste of the public :)

Seriously, if people want to queue 5 hours for a brief bit of small talk with a Z-list celeb, it´s up to them. I´m sure there will be people who get their signed calendar for Xmas for whom that will be the most exciting pressie they get.

Don't forget, in the summer thousands of us packed the town in the early morning drizzle to watch some jolly nobody carry an Olympic torch. If people like celine enjoyed meeting their hero, good luck to them. It takes all sorts.
