I've never met anyone well-known. However, I once thought I saw Stevie Wonder driving a Bently, but then I thought, 'Hang on a second...'

Very small world, we lived in Granborough, a little village just outside of Aylesbury. Mr Freemantle (Lord Cotslowe) was a client of mine. Also Sir Lawrence Verney was a client (anyone from Bucks should know of him or his family - Florence Nightengale, Claydon House, Recorder of London, Sir Edward, etc).

Steve.
