I want to know about your first ‘celebrity’ crush. You know, the one you fancied from that band, or that film, or who read the news, or who won Gold at the Olympics.
Did you have their pictures on your wall or in your locker?
Did you dress like them, style or colour your hair like them, follow them, meet them, marry them? (It could happen.)
Photos of THEM would be good, photos of YOU at the time you liked them would be even better.
Also, if you have time, I’d like to know whether they had any influence over your life, the person you became, or if they were just an embarrassing blip you would kind of rather forget about.
I had posters all over my bedroom and his records never left my record player. I had a David Cassidy jigsaw as well. I'll always remember that jigsaw, it's one of those memories that has stuck with me right through to adulthood.
I seem to recall that Donny Osmond came a close second but nothing could beat that twinkle in David Cassidy's eye. I think I might just swoon even today if I ever crossed paths with him.
As a slight addendum to this....despite the schoolgirl crush, I could never understand what all the screaming and fainting was about. Anyone remember when the Osmonds arrived in the UK and there was mass hysteria and girls were falling down all over the place? I just never got that. But one of my teenage heart-throbs was Bryan Ferry.
A couple of years ago I managed to get some tickets to a small concert he was recording for the BBC. It wa a very intimate theatre and we were only a few rows back from the stage. Well, he walked out onto the stage dressed in a black tuxedo and, girls, I had to shove my fist in my mouth to stop myself from screaming. I finally got it.
Head on over to Jo's to see who else is participating.
*SNOW UPDATE - Having woken up to 3 inches of snow yesterday morning and it still falling fast, by 3pm the sun came out and within an hour it had just about all gone. So fickle.
