Not any of the seven but I met Michael Elphick in a pub once, when he was in panto round the corner. I was several sheets to the wind and proceeded to gush in a fanboy way about him having three of the greatest roles in British film and tv history (Macgowan, Jimmy's dad in Quadrophenia, and the poacher in Withnail). Thankfully he was more pissed than I was so he was extremely gracious about it and I buggered off before I embarrassed him or me any further.

Lovely guy.

Not personally, my sister served Tim Healy when working in a local private hospital. Imagine my disappointment when she didn't even get me an autograph, she barely knew who he was! "Married to that woman off Loose Women". Dear me!

She did say he was a grumpy man - but then again, he was stuck in hospital!
