Hav­ing a drink with a favourite celebrity

Politi­cians and film stars are top of your list

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Jonathan Ged­des

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
