Have you had your 15 minutes of fame?

These days you switch on the television and yet another load of 'ordinary' people are getting their fifteen minutes of fame. Be it a game show or reality program, antiques show or property buying/selling. Thousands are clamoring to be seen on the box. and of course once you have been on the television you are then a 'celebrity'.

Which got me to thinking of my own moments in the public limelight but for me it was not the road to fame and riches just a few moments when I was was on the telly.

My first appearance was in a Weetabix advert age,all I can say I was young,had to run through a field of wheat, jump a ditch and turn back and call my dog. I might add that there was no stunt double for the ditch jumping scene, it was all my own work. For that I got a chauffeur driven car to take me to and from the shoot site,notice the casual but accurate terminology,and I think around 20 quid, a lot of money at the time.

The second time is when the kids home I lived in in Harrow appeared on the local news program and I was selected to kick a football, I have no idea why, possibly a strange TV ritual.

The third time and this is one for the older forum members, I appeared on Crackerjack and I got a pencil. To my shame I cannot remember who the presenter was at the time but I do remember it was not much fun. You were pushed and shoved all over the place by the TV people just so you were in the right positions for the camera shots, there it is again,casual use of terminology.

So there you have it, since then I have shied away from the limelight,preferring to live a life of quiet industriousness.

So the question remains unanswered: Have you had your 15 minutes of fame?

I can be seen in the background for an interview with some girls at the movie premiere for Scott Pilgrim Vs The World. My leather jacket and backpack anyway.

Umm so not really in the video and not fame but still know it was me.

Nothing else really though as a claim to fame i have met some A list movie stars

I had jelly and ice cream with the Beatles at Hammersmith Palais in the sixties but that does not count towards 15 minutes of fame as it was not televised or filmed. No pictures either, very sad.

If security footage counts, I've been drinking and chatting to the All Blacks and the Australian rugby teams several times in '06-'09 and once with a few of from the Saffa team.

Other than that, a few minor celebs, a couple gig afterparties and drinking with one of my favourite Saffa bands, Prime Circle

Many, many years ago, I was linked with Nell McAndrew, as I was working with her at a radio station. Having finished a day's work, we got snapped heading into a restaurant to get some food. My 15 minutes of fame? The media thought I was dating her. Still good friends with her now, thanks to that.

My only 'claim to fame' so far is CPC Folder of the Month, though I forget the month!

That said, I have met a couple of famous people:


Me & Iron Maiden drummer Nicko McBrain (taken in 2006, I was 19 at the time)


Me & Queen guitarist Brian May (taken in August 2011)

I did some model work for GAP. It was wierd to see my chops on posters in stores.

I was 20 and went to the Gym 7 days a week for two hours.

I'm now touching 29 and I struggle to do the gym 3 times a week.
