Last Saturday Cwmbran Life broke the news that Dane Bowers had signed for Cwmbran Celtic  football club.

It was an unusual post for a local blog and click here to read about the dilemma involved in clicking publish.

That post explained how I was worried about Cwmbran Celtic being annoyed…I never really worried about Dane …

That became a bit more real tonight as I was stood at the bar of the Greenhouse pub.

Sophia Cahill and Dane arrived and I had another dilemma.. My story was picked up and shared and even led to being included in a Popbitch celebrity email round up.

I could have sat at the bar and ignored everything. My local link to Sophia goes back 12 years and in the 30 minutes before they arrived I was already chatting to her mum about a story I had written for the South Wales Argus in 2000.

Her mum made the introductions and before I knew it Dane was buying me an SA Gold. Phew…

I returned the favour. He had a bottle of Budweiser.

In the 45 minutes of fun conversation with them both I’ve lined up a couple of quirky stories for Cwmbran Life. Hopefully they will happen.
