    I love Floella :love:

    Also, for the musically minded among you - Will Young and Thom Yorke. So there. Oh and apparently someone from Basement Jaxx.
    Royalty wise both Peter and Zara Phillips (grandchildren of the queen..)
    TV stuff - Nick Baker (:p:), Frank Gardner (BBC's security correspondent), and Katie from the Apprentice :eek:
    Also - fictional people wise, the banker from Deal or No Deal (according to wikipedia, anyway).

    One of the characters in Jonathan Coe's "The Rotters' Club" also went to Exeter, if you're into that.

    No, she got an LLD (Dr of Laws) from Aberdeen in 2006 for her "significant contributions to many charitable causes" and "her many contributions to society". Apparently. According to wiki.

    i don't know the names i'm afraid. in all fairness, the guys are really friendly there and i get on well with them. though, i was popping in every other day asking for a package being sent and, after 4 weeks and several emails to the sender, i discovered that the porters had it behind the desk all along and forgot to log it. doh!!!! it's typical of st lukes though - the whole place is crazy, i hate it! but then again, it's grown on me over the years, like a fungus.

    One would hope, however, that she donates mountains and mountains of her millions to the English dept.
