I was in Munich at the weekend with my 'friend'. Thankfully we didn't run into Dr Fox and companion, at least not in any of the establishments that we frequented.

I am sure he was only there to enjoy the Gluhwein at the Christmas markets.

For those of a certain age......the legendary broom cupboard inhabitant Andi Peters in the Brussels BA lounge no doubt waiting for the delayed 397 (and he rushed to get here apparently...!)

Reputedly he's not a hugely sociable person. YMMV.

He was sat by the fireplace with a baseball cap pulled down and looked utterly and totally discontent with the world. Wouldn't have gone near him.

Try me. I'm very practised at it! And I'm not well known for anything (other perhaps than picking fights on FT).

Be happy ... you are OUR Celebrity on BA


... along with PUCCI, BBB, SRG and several others.
So perhaps you're not a Celebrity?
No, I can't contemplate that.
