It’s not every day you get to meet a pop star, let alone serve them a full English!

But in April 1984, Bury schoolgirl Claire Kingsley did just that.

Claire, seven, a pupil at Sunnybank County Primary School got the chance to meet Nik Kershaw who was in the top 10 at the time with his single Wouldn’t It Be Good.

Nik was staying at the Britannia Hotel in Manchester ahead of a sold-out show at Manchester Apollo and hearing that Claire wanted to serve breakfast to someone famous, he was happy to oblige.

It was part of a promotion by a building society which was offering special ‘fix its’ for its young savers.

Claire of Wensleydale Close served Nik with a hearty breakfast of bacon, eggs, orange juice and a pot of tea and got the chance to chat to the pint-sized pop star.

You suspect she was the envy of all her school mate after this as Nik Kershaw was very much a pop pin-up at this point.

If Claire is still around the Bury area, or perhaps you know her, we’d love to hear more about her breakfast with a pop star. After all, it’s not every day you get to meet someone who performed at Live Aid.
