    That would be the lovely Jean Boht i believe.She was in a high profile play in the West End recently,althogh the name of it escapes me.I am sure someone out there can enlighten me.

    By the way was she having a fag as well?She always looked like a twenty a dayer or is that a bit harsh.Wonderful actress nevertheless.

    Years ago I taught her daughter Hannah, who was lovely; Jean Boht subsequently saw a performance of mine and her comments were enormously encouraging and had a lot to do with my realising I was in the right line of work. A great lady.

    Good spot! That's alot better than the one I keep making. Have no idea what her name is but she was one of the witches in the worst witch with Tim Curry. I keep seeing her everywhere in my area, the pub, asda, at the train station. I can barely hold in the song 'Filthy, smelly, evil wicked and creul' does anyone know who i am talking about or am i crazy? Anyway this also makes me very nostalgic! At least your celebrity spot talked to you, mine probably thinks i'm some sort of stalker that stares at her, though reading this back, perhaps i am!!

    Oh yeah I have a huge celebrity spot I saw Paul Mcartney in Soho. He was dressed like royalty and I didn't have the courage to speak to him.

    I do a bit of PA work for this woman in Notting hill, i have to say i had an impressive celeb spotting day 1. i was just leaving her house and i saw Colin Firth, then when i returned to her house ( from now on you'll think how did i not realise it was this person) having done shoppin for her she was in her kitchen talking to her friend Simon (i recognised him but couldn't work out why1)and we had a long chat about acting. when i walked out the door it dawned on me it was Simon Callow!!!

    Also jean Boht ran the am dram company i was in when i was younger and she used to live down my road.

    There thats enough of me showing off

    Have a good weekend guys, at the mo i am suffering a BAD hangover and i've got to go out again tonight !!

    When I used to work in a theatre I bumped into (literally- I was running backstage) a huge guy. We had a lovely chat, shook hands and he said I looked like trouble (which to be fair I am). We parted and I thought "what a nice man".

    Then he laughed.

    And I realised that the gigantic black guy with the huge hands was in fact Frank Bruno.

    (smacks forhead).

    In a similar way I've also met Linda Robson, one of the gladiator women (how cool am I?), Robert Llewellyn (we were born in the same place)and Paul Barber, who boxed in my car and was rather rude about the whole thing.

    I was also briefly introduced to Colin McFarlane who is quite possibly the nicest and most charismatic man ever.

    I know which Witch you're talking about! She was the skinny snivelly one with the Green hair. Her real name is Sue something but everyone calls her Squeaky Sue because of her voice. I've met her a few times cos she's a friend of my Godmothers. I remember being totally awestruck at her when I was little. Loved that film!

    My brush with the stars was snogging Rolf Harris. It's true, I have proof.
