Anyone famous in West Dulwich
Posted by: Muffins78 28 March, 2008 20:34

Has anyone seen or know of anyone famous in West Dulwich??

I know Kate Thornton used live around here!! Only knew by chance when her house was for sale and I viewed it!! I didnt realise it was hers, and got very excited when I saw a photo of her and another couple and thought...."oh they've met her". It took the estate agent a few times to get me to understand it was her house, and not the couples!!!

I've seen Kate Thornton a few times but not recently. Natasha Bedingfield lives in West Dulwich - never seen her but every time I book an Addison Lee car they never fail to mention it!

One of the girls from MIS-TEEQ used to live on the estate on Rosendale. It wasn't Aleesha Dixon from Strictly come Dancing though.

Nesbitt has a dish named in his honor at many a restaurant. He lives in Herne Hill.

I read in the London Lite that Daniel Beddingfield lives in Dulwich.

I believe I saw Peter Kay in Tescos about 3 weeks ago, he had bought a loaf of bread, some milk and a packet of pork scratchings....anyone else seen him in the area?

Can't believe Paul McGann eats bread and milk. That's so exciting.

Re: Anyone famous in West Dulwich

So are Paul McGann and Peter Kay actually the same person?

In the Telegraph magazine earlier this month Robert Wyatt said that he was brought up in West Dulwich. Anybody remember him from those days?

I was in Kate Thornton's house - I was looking to buy at the time, and the agent kept saying "kate this" and "kate that"... I didnt put two and two together, and I was walking around, and saw a photo of her with a couple, and said "oh look, they know that girl off the tv"... The other people found it funny, I was still confused for a few mins afterwards!! lol!!

Saw James Nesbitt at the station the other day!!
