Don't Let Me Down

Celebs, artists etc you really really hope don't ever appear in some future  unseemly revelation

I'm going firstly for Adam Henson,  possibly my one and only media hero

Clarity LD. When you say 'unseemly revelation', do you mean in the Savile sense?
Late Doors

Deliberate lack of clarity. Didn't want it to be about the worst kind or leave it open for misinterpretation by anybody. I mean any kind of unsavoury behaviour beyond the normal love rat, tax evasion, bad language in restaurant kind of crap.

Maybe im old fashioned but i kinda expect media stars, sports stars etc to be role models of some positive  kind and behave like decent human beings. There's a few whom i admire because i think they are and I'd hate it were it to be shown otherwise. Be like a betrayal of the trust i put in them i suppose.

He did push me in my pram when he first came down to Leeds from Scotland. I can report there was no inappropriateness.

I've never placed anybody on such a pedestal. People are people, famous or not. Anyone and everyone can fuck up.

If I was pushed and had to pick anybody it would be top jockeys like these three L-R Ruby Walsh, Davy Russell, and Barry Geraghty. If they were ever implicated in some daft betting con or stopping a horse from winning I'd be very disappointed because I admire them as disciplined professional men. But it's usually the younger lads who get intimidated into a con, or get blinded by the fast money and throw away their careers. Not older more established blokes like these three seasoned pro's. I really admire Davy Russell and it would do my head in if he was ever named in any kind of scandal. It's hard to explain to people who aren't into racing just how much guys like these are admired by those of us who are passionate about racing.

Those lads definitely need to be on a pedestal.....

I have zero expectations of celebrities.

I once tweeted about this, to zero response, when did celebrities become roll models? I don't ever remember it.

I don't remember ever over hearing my mam saying anything like, 'We just hope he grows up to be like Alan Clarke or Rodger Moore.'

If pushed, I've got a soft spot for John Prine.

Dont people in the public eye have a certain responsibility to be "good" people. At least not shithouses. Wether we like it or not they are role models for i would say the majority of young people. People follow their style, mannerisms and sadly views. Thats why they get interviewd on telly and in teh papers so much. Ive said it myself a few times just 'cos the are famouse doent mean their views are any more worthwhile than other peoples but sadly that is the world we live in

I think it's something that's been pushed on celebrities - relatively recently too - possibly by the media and sportswear companies among others who've figured out a way to make a few quid out of the phenomenon.

I think parents are your number one role model, or should be. My role model was my dad. He never played a guitar, he never made a movie, or wrote a book but he laid the blue print for how I try to live my life.

I've seen the likes of Oliver Reed, George Best and Hurricane Higgins adored and forgiven multiple transgressions by the public, loved way more than say an earnest Billy Bragg.

I expect celebrities to entertain. most of them fail at that.

It's not really setting the bar very high.

I respect your opinion, I just don't share it.

Well, likewise, of course but ill finish the point in maybe a trivial way. A video of Jason zed shows him cruising along the beach front in his open top. He's got almost naked women next to him and behind him, he's got the shades and the threads and he's wrapping on about bitches n hoes (i know all the lingo me). He's living the dream The lights go to red but he goes straight through them laughing whilst tossing his cigar butt into the road. Can anyone tell me that is ok? To me that is shithouse behaviour that will make millions of kids think its ok.Agree about the parents prime role though and i can imagine what parents would say, if they were around.

Cant see Tim Booth doing that sort of thing going back to the thread.

Increasingly difficult to find role models now.

I've always had time for John Humphreys, Paxman, and the other 'serious' journalists who make life difficult for our politicians and attempt to bring them to order.

From the world of sport, Kevin Sinfield, Jessica Ennis. Anyone else who leads through actions rather than words, and seems to remain unaffected by fame.

I'd be very sad if David Attenborough turned out to have done something very wrong. Particularly if it involved animals.
