So!
Which "famous" person did I see in Tesco yesterday, and rudely strike up conversation with while they were trying to shop?

Clue: It's not Dimrill (or any Beexer).
Clue: The person has success in their field on both sides of the Atlantic, so I think it's fair to call them famous.

If you'd said last week I'd have gone for "The Internets Famous Dr Richard Gaywood" (TIFDRG)

As its 20 questions , is their area of expertise acting ?

Not necessarily, if Wikipedia lists her as a "chef and television personality" and Grim... is selective quoting.

Whats she famous for in America , and Wikipedia lists her as :

Quote:
Dani Behr (born 9 July 1970) is an English singer, actress and television presenter.


Whereas Grim... specifically said she was not a singer.

Not Cat Deeley. I'm not sure if you were asking about Anne Robinson, so I'll let that one slide, especially as I don't think she's famous in the US.

9!

Yes she presents a factual TV show, although neither of them. They're factual?

It's not Victoria Coren.

If it was Cat Deeley, Victoria Cohen, or Dani Behr, we wouldn't be playing 20 questions, Grim... would be shouting "I fucking saw Dani Behr last night!". Pick someone less fit.

Nope and nope (well, it involves homes and gardens, but only because they are there).

Top job, sir.

Yes indeed. I asked her if she could make the Grimlet sleep and she said "no-one can make children sleep". Then she said hello to him (calling herself 'Jojo'), and carried on with her shopping.

She's a big girl in real life.
