"I was in a shop," former "BBC World News" presenter Fiona Armstrong once recalled, "when I saw a lady looking carefully at me. She'd recognised my face, I thought -- and true enough, she came across. ''I know who you are,' she said. I smiled. 'You're [actress] Angela Rippon! Yes, you are, you're Angela Rippon!' 'Really, I'm not!' 'You are! Oh, I shall go and tell everyone I've just met Angela Rippon. How excited I am!' She disappeared with a smile. So much for being well-known!"
[Ouch: Angela Rippon was born 12 years before Fiona Armstrong.]
