Strictly M6 Services!

So there we were sitting having lunch in the services on the M6 toll road today, and Colin had just casually asked if I'd seen anyone famous yet and I'd said no. (We often spot someone well known, it was Ross Noble when we were in London a few weeks ago).

And then I looked up and said "Vincent Simone is right behind you!!" He'd walked across to speak to someone so I pulled my camera out of my bag to "kinnear" him, but he headed for the door again. I dithered a bit and then thought "Why am I letting him walk away?" so I jumped up and ran after him, was almost thwarted by the automatic doors and dashed outside just in time to see him disappear up the steps of the Strictly Come Dancing coach parked out the back. The driver was standing outside so I asked if he would ask Vincent if he would mind having a photo so he went in and then Vincent came back out and gave me a big hug and kiss and the driver took a photo of us!!!

I was so excited I didn't think of the fact that all the rest of Strictly were probably all on the coach too!! But Vincent has always been "my favourite" so I was well chuffed with that.
