GWR Editor-in-Chief Craig Glenday recounts his first, nerve-wracking meeting with the Lady with the Nails...

When I first met the wonderful Lee Redmond, I was playing the role of chauffeur. I'd been asked to collect Lee and her granddaughter at Heathrow and bring then back to GWR Towers without any fuss.

This was a few years back, and my first experience of the airport run. Ive since welcomed the likes of smallest man He Pingping and tallest man Xi Shun to the UK, but this was my first experience waiting in the throng of expectant families and anxious girl- and boyfriends for a record holder.

I was getting increasingly nervous as every moment passed what if she never made the connecting flight? Had she even left Utah? If she did make the flight, was it comfortable? The launch of the 2007 book was relying on her cooperation with the press and without Lee, thered be no launch! Yet wed never met her! What would she be like? What kind of a woman would grow her nails like giant talons?
