Mine as all of my stuff is, has a twist of humour. Back in the early '90's I loost 5 stone in weight on the Cambridge diet and was one of the top Cambridge dieters in the West Midlands. We were invited to a top notch do at a posh hoteland told that, each of us (along with other dieters from across the country), would be invited onto the stage and presented with a prize for our achievement. One by one our names were called and as each of us stepped onto the stage, a 'before' photograph was projected up onto a scren the size of a football pitch. When my name was called, I made my way from my seat onto the stage and the photograph appeared. My heart stopped. The photograph they had chosen was not a full body shot (which you would have thought appropriate given the event), oh no, it was just a photograph of my face and it filled the bloody screen. It actually remembled the moon on a very very bad day. Needless to say, I turned down the request to do an interview with Bella magazine. Over to you lot for your Claims to Fame.

If you saw Flash Gordon in the cinema when it was released, there was a documentary film shown called "burgers and beans" about some kids going on a trip on a sailing boat. I was the Skinhead in it.

When my son, Henry, was little he fell off his bike and cut his head quite badly so we went to Booth Hall Childrens' Hospital. Tommy Boyd was there filming for a kids programme so we were on it, they filmed Henry getting an Xray and having stitches. I looked a right mess, all covered in blood

Tommy Cannon sat on my old VTR when I had it on the Honda Owners Club stand at a show at York Racecourse.

I think I upset him though by trying to be funny! When I saw him sat on my bike (despite the "Please do not sit on this bike" sign), I shouted over "Which one are you again? Little or large?" By heck, if looks could kill lol!

I managed to get on tv 3 times, first was the original Saint, me and mates were getting in the way whilst they were filming on the thames tow path over the river from the studio so they kept us in shot as the baddies went past, then when Thames tv started up in mid 60's I was in one of the first broadcast shots fishing. Nice good clear 12 sec shot on top gear when they did the bulldog bash with steve berry, got that on dvd. Absolutely sod all since not even police camera action { they always catch the slow ones LOL.

You ignored Suzi, how could you.
My Mrs persuaded me to go on a TV quiz show, where we got all the questions wrong hehe, we didn't tell anyone when it was being shown.
I also took part in a Met Police promotional film in 1977, where I had to round up some yobs ( actors) and throw them in the back of a van, I got a bit carried away and gave one of them such a shove that he banged his head on the front and had to go hospital for stitches. I did have a video of it, but over the years it has got lost.

When the bomb went off in Manchester my XJ650 was parked about 20ft away :( but they are bombproof, it's only injuries were a flat tyre and a smashed headlight. When it actually went off we were being told to walk up Market St and people started running when it actually exploded a lady tripped and knocked herself out, I was filmed giving her first aid and the footage went all the way to Australia..... I was getting calls off friends there asking if it was me and i hadn't even seen it as it took ages to get home!!

I was chatted up by the lead singer of Queensryche in Hull's Cheese Bar when I was far too young to be in there, he was rather scrummy tho, and I didnt realise who he was til they came on stage as support for Ronnie James Dio, and I thought, wowwwww ! I've met Thunder several times in their early days at after show parties, apart from that... not a lot !
