Celeb Spotting is as big a part of going to the Edinburgh Festival as going to actual shows. Every year, you’re guaranteed to see somebody remotely famous there.
This year was no different, although I had to wait a while. I arrived on the Saturday morning, and didn’t see a celeb until the Monday night.
Monday 24th August
Gyles Brandreth – Walking towards Potterrow
Al Murray – Walking towards Assembley at Potterrow*
Jimeoin – Walking along Forrest Road.
Tuesday 25th August
Al Murray – Hailing a cab on Princes Street**
Wednesday 26th August
Matt Forde – Talking to flyerers at Pleasance
Gordon Strachan – Loitering backstage at the James concert at Princes Street Gardens
* Al Murray has made so many appearances on this blog, it’s as much a certainty of being in Edinburgh as it raining.
** I’m not stalking Al Murray.
