Rude boy

Loan etc’s Michelle Blair proved to Mole that she is not a lady to be messed with, especially when it comes to celebrities.

Blair and a friend recently bumped into Stephen Gately, one-fifth of boy band Boyzone on a night out. Blair’s star-struck friend decided to ask Gately for a photograph with her.
