Have you ever upset anyone Famous?
I have refused Shane Ritche entrance to a hotel in Blackpool because he had no I.D on him (also removed a very drunk Alex Higgins from same hotel).
One of my colleagues so upset Grahame Souness once that he refused to open the ‘Pickwick Night’ at Whalley and drove home in a hough.
Go on then, who have you royally naffed off?Posted 4 years agotomhowardSubscriber
Not me, but a mate works for Madame Tussaud’s, so has to deal with a celeb or two and one day had to move a range rover as it was blocking him in so he got the keys and
ragged itmoved it to a car parking space.
Apparently Daniel Craig was less than pleased.
I had to tell Dave Courtney he couldn’t smoke at the bar I was working behind, got a bit of a glare.Posted 4 years agowartonMember
simon Donald, one of viz’s creators, and general rent a mouth for those ‘100 best’ tv programmes.
Got into an argument with him beacause I went through a red light on my bike (it was years ago, i realise I was in the wrong now 🙂 )

Got the look from the late Barry Sheene when I prevented him getting on his DAF Suzuki because I was taking a picture of his bike. Elicited a ‘farkin ell’ when I did it again later in the day.
This was unofficial practice for the British GP back in the day when you could just wander around the pitsPosted 4 years agoinbred853Member
Not upset but mildly annoyed the actor that plays Taggart in the series, me and my mate were in the hospitality tent after the Great North Run supping free booze when he sauntered along, with his free food, lots of, “there’s been a murder”, with him looking less than pleased, same happened the year after to which he had a wee outburst much to our laughter.Posted 4 years agoPookSubscriber
I once drunkenly told Darren Gough in a Sheffield bar that he’d get back on form if he stopped boozing and focussed on getting his knee better. One of the fit girls on his arm told me to **** off and he just laughed at me.
Which was fair.
I think he may even have already retired by then.Posted 4 years agobikebouyMember
David Coverdale, yes he of Whitesnake fame. I was carrying three pints over to my mates, I backed away from the bar (reversed so I could protect my beer) inadvertently turning sharpish and landing three pints in the lap of Mr Rock God. He was not very happy with me, but it wasn’t him that turfed me out of the pub and landed a punch in my guts, nooo that was his minder.Posted 4 years ago
No matter how much I tried to apologise I got the feeling he wasn’t accepting any of my protestations,of sorrowful guilt, but it really was an accident. 😐SpinMember
I was running a charity abseil at which Charlie Dimmock was the main attraction. Me and the boys sized her up (you develop an eye for these things) and thought she would fit in a standard harness. We didn’t want to upset her as the large ones were huge.
She managed to get it about as far as her knees. “Does this adjust” she said. “Only down” I replied.Posted 4 years agoKlunkMember
I got glared at by Steve Martin, Dan Aykroyd and most of the crew of Sgt. Bilko. I was watching them filming at the back lot of Digital Domain while having a crafty fag on the fire escape. The fx smoke generators malfunction and belched smoke out over the whole cast and crew anyway they didn’t take kindly to my laughter. 😳 😆Posted 4 years agooldgitMember
I gave Robert Powell (Jesus) the hump when I was a kid by cycling through ‘his’ woods, he insisted we get off and walk. But I was too busy looking at his missus’s boobs, she being Babs Lord of pans People. He went crimson with rage.Posted 4 years ago
Right out of his league with her the little twerp, even as a kid I knew that.
Ooh, just remembered the last Tory Conference at Blackpool, an incredibly drunk Alan Duncan approached myself and a colleague in the early hours at the Imperial Hotel and asked how he could get out of the carpark. My colleague said ‘sir, you could leave by that exit, or that exit (pointing at the 2 obvious exits), or alternatively you could stick a rocket up your arse and leave that way’.Posted 4 years ago

I set fire to the corner of a newspaper that a famous radio one dj was reading in a busy London record store. He didn’t really notice until he turned the page to be met by a sheet of flame. Management were not impressed but I was quick on my feet in those days.
Did he try to touch you?Posted 4 years agoNZColSubscriber
Engaged in light fistcuffs with Liam Gallacher at Universal studios in LA, at the log flume of all places. I sttod on his foot accidentally and he took exception, shoved me and tried to hook me so i twatted him quite hard more as a natural reaction !. Had no idea who he was until Patsy started kicking off and a large man intervened apologising. Kept seeing him and of course i enjoyed gobbing off at him and generally inciting him. Could have been a childs face though as his kids were there, shocking example and I could really have shown some decorum but i was young and angry.Posted 4 years agovorlichMember

In a younger life, while working for TWA at LAX and on-duty in the lost luggage department one evening, had to tell Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton that their luggage was inadvertently left off their TWA flight out of New York–this after an hour of their patiently (not so much) waiting while I made calls to try and find it.
Fortunately it had been found and brought in on another flight 1 1/2 hours later. My god, she was lovely to look at and Richard (who had obviously had more than a few cocktails) was really reasonably pleasant after the first 10 minutes-actually quite funny once he realized there was absolutely nothing that could be done except wait.Posted 4 years agomaccruiskeenSubscriber
En masse a bunch of about of us inadvertently pissed off the late Frank Sidebottom.
A large bunch of us had booked a coach to take us to a nightclub, rendezvous for the pick up was at a pub near Aston University. On the night it turns out the pub is the venue for a live radio 1 broadcast. I’m not sure how they marketed it but we weren’t aware it was going to be on and we were also pretty much the only people there- There was a DJ trying to enthuse an warm up the ‘crowd’ prior to the broadcast- the crowd was basically us, waiting for a bus. Part of the evening that we were also unaware of was some live standup by Frank and that was going the be the bit going out live on air. The live broadcast starts and Frank’s announced and comes on stage just as we see our coach pull up in the windows behind him. He tells his first joke and about 60 of us get up and walk out.Posted 4 years ago
