Having a drink with a favourite celebrity
Politicians and film stars are top of your list
Last week, the Reformer told how a group of pals on a stag do bumped into a famous face.
Jim Moore and his mates found themselves in the pub with chart-topping singer Ed Sheeran, who was game for a laugh and joined them for a selfie, as well as wishing Jim the best with his forthcoming nuptials.
With that in mind, we headed out to Burnside to ask locals what famous folk they would love to meet in their local for a pint and some chat.
John Higgins said: “I would want to speak to Nicola Sturgeon. Just one to one, as long as I could get actual yes or no answers and not all ifs or buts that she usually says.”
His wife Joan Higgins had old school Hollywood glamour in mind over politics.
She said: “I’d love to meet Kirk Douglas. He’s 100, so the amount of stories you’d get from him. I’ve always been a big fan of his films, although I would probably say ‘I’m Spartacus!’”
Lucy McInally was more in mind for a bit of humour.
She said: “James Corden would be my favourite because you’d get some laughs.
“I’ve loved him for years, going back when he was in Gavin and Stacey so bumping into him would be great.” Ruth Watt returned to politics with her pick. She said: “I think Barack Obama would be great, you could talk to him about politics, his life, everything.
“I’m a fan of his – certainly more than the present regime there!”
Barack Obama would be great, you could talk to him about politics, and his life,” Ruth Watt
