We’ve talked about the men that make us go weak at the knees, we’ve oohed and arghed over them but where did it all start? More to the point with whom? Only one Romaniac knows the answers – we’d love you to join in and try to guess who had a crush on who. Can you relate to any of these or did you have your own? Do tell!
So you have Celia, Lucie, Vanessa, Jan, Laura, Catherine, Debbie, Liz & Sue to match up with the following:-
This Romaniac has listed Sting, Bryan Robson and John Travolta amongst her many teenage crushes but the one she truly holds dear for his brawn, confidence and wicked sense of humour is Bruce Willis as David Addison in his Moonlighting days
SO ALL THE CRUSHES HAVE BEEN GUESSED – DAVID ADDISON WAS OUR LOVELY JAN’S CRUSH
Any member of Take That was this particular Romaniac’s crush, but she was devastated when Robbie left
WELL DONE TO EVERYONE WHO GUESSED THIS WAS LIZ’S CRUSH
Obviously a Grange Hill fan, Tucker Jenkins and Stupot were on the list of this Romaniac.
LAURA HAD THE GRANGE HILL THING GOING ON
Who was under the spell of Dave Leoffler because of his floppy hair? That would be same person who had a major crush on Mark Owen because he was cute (and he had floppy hair too I seem to remember)
YEP, THIS WAS CATHERINE’S CRUSH
Who do you think would have posters on their bedroom wall of Elton John, Marc Bolan and Freddie Mercury (do you notice a theme there?) It is, however, David Bowie who can still cause this Romaniac to flush when she sees him on TOTP2
AND THIS HAS BEEN CORRECTLY IDENTIFIED AS CELIA’S CRUSH
From the one extreme to another – who would like to make Dragons’ Den, Peter Jones an offer he couldn’t refuse, while at the same time swooning over Taylor Hanson?
CORRECTLY GUESSED AS LUCIE’S CRUSH
This law abiding Romaniac had a thing for the likes of Officer Poncherello from the American TV series CHiPS, both Starsky & Hutch and either Lewis Collins or Martin Shaw from The Professionals
THIS WAS SUE’S CRUSH
This Romaniac had a thing for Aidan Quinn from Desperately Seeking Susan, she even wore fingerless gloves for months after seeing the film. However, she would loved to have been ‘Baby’ and she certainly would not have been left in the corner as she dirty danced with Johnny Castle.
NO BODY PUTS OUR VANESSA IN THE CORNER, NOT WHERE HER CRUSH IS INVOLVED ANYWAY
She ADORED John Travolta, drank Babycham while watching David Soul in Starsky & Hutch but her true teenage crush because he was sexy, no wait, make that really sexy, was Adam Ant.
AND A GIRL AFTER MY OWN HEART, WITH A MEGA CRUSH ON ADAM ANT, WAS DEBBIE
We’ve told you ours, do let us know yours!
