Thinking last night while her indoors (honest) was watching celeb big brother. That Kerreh Katona bird... what happens when she runs out of money?

Clearly she wont sing anymore (did she even in the first place?) and im sure she can last another 5 years on crappy celeb shows. But what happens then? She's clearly been in money troubles and scrapes a living going from celeb show to celeb show.

So what celebs do you now know of back in 'normal' jobs? I believe the East 17 boys went back to being roofers. What about any others?

As you can tell, im full of thought provoking intelect this morning

'Celebrities'


Then mentioning Kerry Katona. Bleh.

I expect they get by on selling stories and pics of themselves to 'Celebrity' magazines etc....

Gary Croft

taken from Wiki:

[quote]Gary Croft (born 17 February 1974 in Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire, England) is a former English football player who played as a left back. He played as a professional between 1992 and 2008 notably for Grimsby Town, Blackburn Rovers and Ipswich Town, having also had spells with Wigan Athletic, Cardiff City and Lincoln City. He is most famous nationwide for being the first footballer to play whilst wearing an electronic tag,[1] when playing for Ipswich Town. Croft made his England under-21s debut against Brazil under-21s on 6 June 1995, David Beckham also made his debut in the same match.[2]

I think so...

Little Britain had a sketch based on a childrens' tv personality working in a supermarket.

They can always land a job in PR or something that requires a face, albeit an ugly one. Let's face it, most of us don't have the celeb thing on our CV and manage. Clearly some of them are as thick as pig sh8t and i'm struggling to think what sort of job requires experience in being spit-roasted by footballers and ilk. But if you can sing, dance or tell jokes [badly] then you will find work.

Not really a celebrity as such, but there was a pub where my folks have a holiday home that was ran by an ex premiership footballer, nobody well known but he had pictures all over the wall of him in the team line up with some big stars, shaking Mandelas hand etc... Apparently had some big gambling problem and when I was up there the other week he was selling bacon butties and ice creams from a van down by the beach, seems he works for a local estate now as an odd job man. Decent enough bloke by all accounts and seems to be taking it all in his stride.

Not quite a celebrity, but the breakfast show presenter on Rock Radio used to play guitar with Nazareth.

I met him a couple of years ago, before he got the radio gig, he was driving delivery lorries for Asda, when i worked there as a student.

What about the failed celebrities who are £XM in debt and out of work yet still living multi-millionaire lifestyles? If they’re out of work and £XM in debt than they’re earning £X less than me and effectively have £XM less than me, yet I can barely afford to scrape a humble plebeian existence while they continue to live in sprawling mansions and drive Porsche Cayennes. I don’t get it.

I guess it depends if you're a "celebrity" because you're really good at something or a "celebrity" because you were on some talentless vacuous reality TV show...

Why do we (i.e. the UK media and its acolytes) celebrate these nonentities?
