    Not really, but I share a surname with that hairy one from Boyzone and two of the girls from B*Witched (remember them?)

    What channel's your cousin going to be on? I can impress people with yet another tenuous link to stardom...

    Let's not forget the merry band of idiots from tMP who all volunteered to appear in the Musicians category on one of the first shows on 'Test the Nation' where I had the pleasure of sitting next to the author of the first post in this thread...:)

    Good fun was had by all....:)

    One of my great aunts always used to claim that she could trace our family tree back to Oliver Cromwell. I've inherited all of her research and I've yet to find convincing evidence but you never know.
