Up Close & Personal : Mecca Meets Claire Sweeney
As you will know, we had the amazing Claire Sweeney with us yesterday talking all things soap, celeb and answering your questions live.
If you missed it, don’t worry – it was recorded and can be found below.
We also took some time out to have a quick Q&A for our loyal readers of the Mecca blog. Enjoy!
• Who did you have on your wall as posters when you were young ?
Shakin’ Stevens that was when I was really young. I had posters of him, funny isn’t it Shakey S ha ha! Actually and then I thought he was a bit naf and I became obsessed with Sammy Davis Jr. I had a large picture of him on my wall as Mr Bojangles which I thought was very cool.
