I'm 11 years old and I'm stood at my white MFI desk in my pink bedroom, in a bungalow, in Redditch - home to Rik Mayall, Kevin Turvey and me. I'm holding a purple and black spotted furry photo frame about the size of a passport and wondering what to put in it...

Thank you, Rik

"You didn't know him. I hate this; when people get upset about somebody they didn't know", I didn't argue. I couldn't really hear what my friend was saying above the sound of my heart beating. I'd agree with him, usually. It's hard to understand how you could feel such grief for somebody you'd never known... and yet I did.

People Say You Should Never Meet Your Heroes... Those People Never Met Rik Mayall

Rik was ridiculously charming, funny and generous - and clearly loved by the crew around him. He was also, I was embarrassed but delighted to learn, flirtatious. After the chat and the autograph, one of the crew took our photo together: I put my arm around Rik, he put his hand on my bottom. But it wasn't, I hasten to add, the slightest bit creepy or slimey. It was funny, and brilliant. Clearly, this man wasn't making a play for me - he was just absolutely making my day. It was, in short, pretty much the most perfect meeting-of-a-hero you could wish for.
