Clark recalled running into Windsor in Selfridges just weeks after he was eliminated from O Fator X dentro 2012, having previously met the actor and her husband Scott Mitchell backstage at the show.
“She introduced me to her husband and I was like, ‘Hello, Scott. Lovely to meet you!’” Clark remembered. "Ela disse, 'Não, darling. You said hello to him a few weeks back at X Factor.’”
“I was so sorry. Como, all over the place. And she said, ‘Let me give you the best piece of advice you’ll ever need. Never say, “Nice to meet you.” It’s always, “Lovely to see you.”’ And for the past 10 anos, Barbara Windsor has got me out of so many awkward scrapes.”
