Some important people with friendly smiles and lots of flashy cameras put some lipstick on me and gave me a can of fizzy pop and told me to stand with a crowd of hippies and when they said ‘now’ I had to walk over and give a nice policeman a drink of my can and then they said ‘good job’ and they gave my mum a big suitcase full of bits of green paper and everyone was smiling and laughing. But now everyone is cross with me, did I have a big bogie?
When I was little, the Stamford and Rutland Observer ran a child modelling competition where you could win £500 and a guest appearance at Truckfest at the East of England Showground alongside Geoff Capes and Andy Bell from Erasure. My mummy and daddy were quite keen to win the money and we all thought I had a good chance despite my lazy eye but in the end the competition was cancelled. Apparently Geoff Capes was being a diva again and refused to turn up unless he got the stage all to himself and 50 white doves in his dressing room. True story.
Hope that helps
