BRIEF ENCOUNTERS OF THE SHOWBIZ KIND
Ahoy readers, I hope you’ll email me with your awkward/funny/ boring/whimsical celebrity encounters. Remember where there’s fame, there’s a claim...
Just like Harriett Wilson in last week’s column, I was also at V Festival and I was blind drunk, waiting for my wife to return from the toilet.
Through misty beer goggles I spotted my HERO, Billy
Corgan wearing a silver jacket and a huge pair of sunglasses.
I got up, stumbled a little closer and finally plucked up the courage to go and say hello to the man who soundtracked my childhood.
As I got within spitting distance of the man himself, my eyes suddenly managed to focus and I realised... it was Gail Porter. I said hello anyway. She was very nice.
■■Now, Matt Glass from Essex, that is awkward.
