    Teachers TV came in to my old secondary school to film my GCSE English class once; they got a nice lil' shot of me engrossed in my copy of Of Mice and Men.

    My mums cousin starred in some of the Carry On films but he died before I was born. And I think my friend was on TV after our school did a fundraiser for a cancer charity after she was diagnosed, but that might have just been some of the teachers and/or policemen involved (the teachers arranged to get arrested by her dad and his coworkers and stay in the cells overnight). I know she's been in the paper...I've never let her live it down!

    Does that sort of thing go on your CV? I'd probably hire someone for that...and joke about it all the time.

    DISCLAIMER: I don't hire/fire anyone. The power would go to my head. Muhahahahaha!

    I can imagine it now- you'd swing into the office one morning and there, on your desk, would be a single Kinder egg...
