Famous People You've Met


Recommended Posts

My younger bro texted me today and said that Supracharged-IS340 came into his work today to renew his car parking permit. He was a little star struck but didn't go ga-ga and ask for an autograph!

Which brings on the question - have any of you guys met anyone famous?

I once served Jonathan Ross when I was working in a London games shop, but I guess that pales into comparison to being about 3 feet away from Hilary Clinton when she was doing the rounds at Covent Garden a few years back - I remember all the FBI suits with their black gloves, shades and earpieces all over the place!

I played and sang live on Radio Lancashire about four years back and spent the morning with Jim Bowen of "Bullseye" fame.. He was a top guy and whilst I was talking to him I asked about my Mums old story about him teaching her when she was at school.. Turns out that Mum was telling the truth :o He remembered her from all those years ago.. She was in the school brass band and he was the music and maths teacher... Small world people... :D

This is really a cool topic - lol

I had the pleasure of meeting Rolf Harris - I was young and suffering from a wicked cough at one of his shows, he took me on stage and introduced me as the little coughing boy....think it was in Bournemouth

Had lunch with Cat Deeley and Gareth Gates at Safeways picnic in the park in 2002 - that was interesting - and yes she is bloody fit!

Also, at the same event met, Ashley Cole, Gabriel, Joan Collins (Got really star-struck then!!!), and also Rod Stewart and Penny Lancaster (***** she has long legs!!!!)

When i was about 8 Barry McGuigan the boxer was stopping in the same hotel as us in Antigua. I was a bit too young to appreciate it but my dad, a massive boxing fan, was starstruck!

I also met Darth Vader outside toymaster in York when i was a kid. :P

well i am a close friend of the daughter of Howard williams from Manfred Man. 5 4 3 2 1 fame, lol. i go on little trips with them to their holidays homes in palm springs and spain n stuff, also has a way cool yaught moored up in portsmouth. altho it made me sea sick when we sailed to spain. He is a top bloke and loves his cars. even let me take out his new 911 convertible. silly man!

He is a great buisiness man and we are going to go into buisiness in a few years together when i have settled down enuf.

Also met chris eubank outside parliment near work the other week, very nice guy, said hi and was realy friendly asking how we all are etc.

Had the pleasure of scaring the **** out of dermot oleary (big brother presentor) a few years back when i was being filmed for big breakfast about Downhill MTB racing. he was standing in between a set of doubles (twin ramps with a gap between) and was filming away when i jumped over the top of him and missed his head by 10cm, looked so good on film. he just fell to the floor and was a right little sissy. he annoyed the hell out of everyone including the crew. loves himself so so much. so we spent the day taking the ***** out of him.

Also threw a waterbottle at "Dean Gafney" (robbie from eastenders) when he made a "Guest" appearance at a club. kinda started a riot tho as everyone else started throwing stuff at him and he was evacuated.

I hate minor celebs, pointless waste of time me thinks.

anyway, celebs are just people in my opinion and are just as vunerable as us to attack, lol.

Also have been on a few nights out with Lee from the band blue. he is a top bloke. was in the paper not long ago from when he invited us to the concert in brighton, we went to the after show party at the hotel and the manager was giving us hastle so lee decided it was time to spray her with the fire extinguisher, her face was a picture.

He was also given a brand new BMW M3 convertible by bmw! and got £1million from pepsi for being a Pepsi person which he spent £900,000 on a kick ***** flat in london. I wanna be a celeb now!
