First crush I can remember having when I was very young was Maggie Moone when she was on 'Name That Tune'
Allegedly I used to kiss the screen whenever she came on
Later on, my main crush was Melissa Joan Hart when she was in Clarissa Explains It All
Which has then pretty much remained with me as she went on to star in Sabrina The Teenage Witch and beyond...
Same age as me, and still would now
As for Gladiators, I was always in the 'Lightning' camp too
Not that I'd ever have kicked Jet out of bed either of course. Just that Diane Youdale was always more interesting to me when she was starring as 'The Games Mistress' in Sky One's Games World
