Default Famous PP holiday makers

We have just returned from a week in a James Villa just outside old Pollensa - great time had by all. We saw JANE HORROCKS walking down the lane outside our villa! What other famous faces have been spotted in Pollensa I wonder??

A few years ago whilst staying in csv my husband helped an elderly gentleman off the pollensa bus. Later that evening when we :were having a nightcap in the Bar Majorca we could hear someone moaning about Saga holidays. Turned out to be husband's elderly gent. and he turned out to be seth armstrong from emmerdale, sorry can't remember his real name. He was staying at the Molins

Used to see John Pertwee regularly as he lived in Pollensa a lot of the year. My daughter who was about 6 at the time (now working in C'an Costa for the summer) tripped over in front of him .. he helped her up, and we started chatting. My mum had gone to Frensham Heights boarding school with him,and he had been my aunt's first boyfriend. He even phoned my mum up afterwards to say he had met us!

I sat in front of Colin Salmon ( currently playing the doctor in Bad Girls..phwoar!) on the flight out a few years ago year, we have also seen Jane Horrocks at Plama airport AND Tony Hadley fron Spandeau Ballet was on our flight back last July!

Looks like us lot aren't the only ones who think Mallorca and especially PP is fantastic

Our celeb sightings thus far - Ian Lavender buying toilet roll at the SYP supermarket near the old town shortly after joining Eastenders.

Steve Cram strolling with family down Pine Walk some years ago - clearly another man of excellent taste.

And....Mr Motivator doing some dubious piece-to-camera for a low budget travel channel on the beach in front of the H. Anglada Camarasa statue.

Man, I know how to live.....

We have seen quite a few over the past 3 years, the best was meeting Barry McGuigan dining at Il Gardino (old Town) - Jenny (can't remember her surname) the food lady on UK Food - also in the old town. ummmm who else... Amada Platell the ex-tory private secreatry, oh yes, Annie Lennox in Deia. i'm sure there are others, but can't think of them right now. As you can tell we spend alot of time in the old town for the food,family scene and all-round people watching, many an hour is spent looking out for famous lookalikes and what a score when spot a real one!

Back about 2 - 3 years ago we saw Brian Mcfadden from Westlife having lunch with some friends on the beach front in Puerto Pollensa, it didn't take long though before he had to make a sharp exist because the teenage girls started harrassing him.

Also,

( not sure I can claim this one coz I didn't actually see them )

But I have it on very good authority that Robbie Williams hired one of those fantastic villas on the cliffs at Formentor for a week last summer

and that he spent time in PP

Default famous Faces

Scraping the bottom of the barrel with some of that lot!:lol

The thread says FAMOUS faces! Liam Gallagher and Patsy Kensit down in the port one day, they were staying the Hotel Formentor. He came across as a decent guy, giving people autographs.

Neil Sullivan (ex Tottenham, Wimbledon, Chelsea, Leeds and Scotland keeper) spotted with his family on PW a few years back.
Of course when I saw him he wasnt playing for Spurs anymore so therefore can only be called "former famous".
I saw the ice cream man on his bike too Snowy....much more famous than any of the others:lol
