Generic Celeb

Is it just me?

I've had a quick glimpse at a few programs with alleged "celebrities" in them, and not recognised a single one.

What does it take for someone to be a "celeb"?

For example, I once won a torch from winning a game of bingo in an amusement arcade in Hastings in (circa) 1972. Would that qualify me as a celebrity?

Good question, Dex, and one I have often pondered over this, myself.

Firstly may I say how much I admire you for winning that torch. I hope it has lit your pathway in life till this day still.

Although I feel a little shy about this, I will admit I once saved a dog from being shot - plus my Agapanthus in the garden this year have been legendary.

I feel I have achieved so much.

That makes you a celebrity in my book, Mups!

Thank you Tabby, but I felt so in awe of Dex's Bingo win, that I kept quiet about it.
