Celebrity coincidences

I was in Planet Organic off Tottenham Court Road today and found my way to the cereals aisle in search of proper porridge, only to find myself standing next to someone who was the spitting image of Persian-born childrens’ campaigner Camila Batmanghelidjh. (Apt for me saddened by the death of Kodjo Yenja in Hammersmith Grove on Wednesday, not far from work).

Later talking to Diane she said she’d been outside the Ritz and seen Liza Minnelli’s ex-hubby David Gest. Way to go Diane (but I think I prefer my celebrity spot!). Later I spotted who I now know was BBC Newsnight’s Diplomatic Editor Mark Urban on Tottenham Court Road. Sorry for the slow recognition on that…

Where was my invite?
