Kelvin Fletcher Quotes
On His Ideal Dinner Party I'd have Martin Luther King. I was always into history at school. Muhammad Ali, just because he's so inspirational. I'm a big fan of Robert De Niro and I thought Leonardo Di Caprio was brilliant in Catch Me If You Can. Brad Pitt I like as well. He's great in Fight Club. Joaquin Phoenix from Gladiator could come along and I think Peter Kay is great. I suppose I better get some females there as well so let's invite Beyonce.
On winning his National Television Award I was sat there, rooted to the spot when my name was called out, and when it came to the speech there were so many people I wanted to thank, but the words just wouldn't come.
On his part in 'Emmerdale' He's Not really a horrible child. It's just the background he comes from. At school, he felt everyone was picking on him all the time, including his teacher. But Sarah was really on his side and knew how he felt.
On Clive Hornby's illness and death It's not really hit me yet. There is such a massive void there. The minute he went there was a huge hole. There are certain scenes now that you think he should be in and he should be there. He was definitely a second father to me, without question. He was a massive part of my life from 12 years old. We knew he'd been ill for a while but like anything else you don't accept it. He had been off work for a couple of months and what was the hardest was to do scenes saying we missed Jack. We would say, 'Oh Jack's on holiday, I wonder when he's coming back.' It was hard to do that.
