John Travolta - in town for a Scientology gathering - tried to book a table at the East Grinstead KFC.
The KFC politely pointed out that it was a KFC and not the bleedin' Ritz-Carlton, and turned down the booking.
Somehow the story has wound up in Gordon's column:
A KFC spokesman said last night: "In hindsight, of course, we would have reserved a table for him."Why?
It's unclear if the KFC spokesperson has got stars in their eyes, or merely had one of the grinding dressing downs that the Scientologists specialise in when they don't get their way.
