    I've had tea and biscuits with Gordan Banks and his wife in their house. What a privilege.

    My sister went out with Jeff Clarke when he was at City.
    Him and Peter Barnes had a kick around with me and my brother in our back garden.
    I was in the same class at secondary school as Ian Wilson of Sad Cafe.

    Second/third cousin was Monica Coghlan. The lady who Jeffrey Archer (spits) said was a liar but who was proven to be telling the truth.

    I knew people (now both dead sadly) one of whom had seen Hitler when he came to Hamburg where she lived and the other had a chat with Stalin every morning when he was one of the British contingent guarding the villa at Yalta while Churchill, Roosevelt & Stalin had their 1945 conference.

    One of my teachers guarded Rudolph Hess on his first night in Scotland & in the same class was Martin Sixsmith, the BBC's man in both Washington & Moscow, later played by Steve Coogan in Philomena.

    Not to get @Mad Eyed Screamer all excited but I dropped my daughter at school one morning and there was a girl crossing the road in front of the car. "See that girl?" said my daughter "That's Sunny Marr. Her dad's supposed to be quite famous".

    My mum used to have a café in the centre of Manchester and among her regular customers were Mike Summerbee & George Best.
