Syd Little on Felixstowe sea front when he and Eddie were appearing at the Spa Pavilion there sometime in the 90s and short while after I had had a sketch accepted for their TV show.
And Lenny Bennett and his then comedy partner Jerry Stevens when they did a private stage show in Nice for the franchise photographic company I was with at the time in the late 70s. I have a photo somewhere of me and them getting pissed in the hotel bar.
OH! And David Frost on Ipswich railway station in about 1964 when I was going to London for a job interview and he had just been to see his parents at Beccles in the north part of Suffolk. I only had a second class ticket but was determined to talk to him and so sat with him in first class, hoping the ticket inspector wouldn't appear. He didn't and David got off at Colchester (short trip) to be interviewed for something. He disappeared to the bog to put some make-up on and when he came back it was a bit of a shock to see how thick he had laid it on his face!!
He told me that at the time he was writing a TV prog. (or it may have been an article) about Randolph Churchill. The other biding memory was he had really bad acne around his neck.
A really nice man who took the time to speak to a nobody like me - I bet his heart sunk when I sat in the opposite seat to him!!
