Throughout my life I haven't been very successful in the meeting famous people category. When I was a young lad I was on that stupid show called Tiswas with Chris Tarrant. Chris Tarent was a friend of my mothers and he used to occasionally drink in the pub we owned back in those days. He gave my sister and me two tickets for the show. Secondly I managed to get on the Basil Brush Show when I was a wee nipper. Can’t remember much on that meeting. My brother went to school with John Taylor from Duran Duran. My three biggest meeting were in Australia where I actually talked with Natalie Embrulia outside an ice-cream shop on Bondi Beach. She was waiting for her then boyfriend who was the lead singer of Silverchair. She is stunning in real life. I’ve saw Lawrence Fishbourne in a supermarket also on Bondi Beach but didn't say anything to him. I’ve met loads from the crap soap opera's in a night club called "Home" in Darling harbor. The funniest meeting was when we met that Toad Fish from Home and away. The following week he was banned from the same pub for shagging an English bird in the toilets. Finally one my best buddies played for West Bromwich Albion. His name is Stacey Caldecott. Poor Lad.
Have you met any famous people?
Got any Gossip on famous people?
Met David Bellamy at newcastle airport and train station a few times, ALan Shearer was my neighbour Peter Beardsley lived around the corner as did several other footballers.
Jackie charlton drak in one of my locals as well.
I also met Felowa Benjamin that big black lady from TV in a british gas showroom.
ANd the most famus of all was the bad guy from Mission Impossible 2 - he was in my mates apartment one night filming a new patsy kensit film - nice bloke told him the film was shite though - shame that the mushrooms were making me behave like a dick.
My list is impressive...
When I was in America a guy told me to 'have a nice day' but I didn't, so I sued him
Im pretty proud of Felowa benjamin or however you spell her name she had a wicked laugh
She was cool! Floella Benjamin, that is.
I met Paradorn at the airport after a flight back from Australia earlier this year. We were in the luggage section, he must have been on the same flight. Of course he pretended not to know who I was. The ensuing karma probably accounts for his wretched form this year. Snob.
Or would you like to swing on a star?

Thats for starters
not that i'm proud of it.
once had a brew and a few herbal aperitifs with those monkeys from oasis back in the heady days of, er, i guess about 95.
i got fired years ago from a PR job for spending too much time hobnobbin with the stars at celerbrity events our firm put on...i always made sure it was my responsibility to hire the photographer and then had him shoot me with different stars...i got some great shots of me and mohamed ali, heston among others...then years after that, i got a part time job driving a limo in los angeles...i got over the "star gazing" quickly...
one of my favorites, an experience that really turned my celebrity awe into contempt was driving rosanne barr from her private jet to her brentwood mansion...she was certainly juiced on something...she sat in the back with her head and shoulders slumped over, screaming and i do mean screaming: "FASTER! FASTER!" ....she kept it up like a montra...the trouble was that i couldn't comply even if i wanted to...i guess she didn't realize we were locked in bumper to bumper traffic...

I served Jonny Wilkinson at the restaurant I work at, and also Dec (from Ant and Dec)
Jackie Charlton's missus is my younger sister's Godmother
Met the Queen...that's about all I think.
Oh - and I interviewed Sigue Sigue Sputnik for the uni newspaper - that was really weird!
I'm uber-impressed with all your celeb tales.
My heady heights of celebrity encounters are limited to meeting(and getting a free pint from) the guy who appeared on the "Freak or Unique" section of TFI Friday for blowing a condom up through his perforated ear drum.
Met many many so called 'Famous people' during my 30yrs as a Documentary Film Director here in the UK, and round the World.
If I never see any of them again it will be too soon!
Selfish bastards. Virtually every one of them......
Very excited about the possibility of having a beer with KK though......wonder if he will give me his Autograph?
(I hear he looks just like his Avatar).
