    Theses are mine.

    Mine all ways involves drink.
    Sat in the VIP room in a club in weston having a couple of pints with Ross Kemp.
    Nothing interesting, I got a bit drunk, he got a beer tipped over him (not by me), had some drinks and he went away.

    Sat in the drinking lounge at a hotel in worcester at about 2am having several drinks with CarterUSM till 4am. Then ended helping a bunch of women get their friend back from this random bloke.

    Ended a friday night out in a Karaoke resturant with some of the cast of skins. Got drunk and went home. Nothing that that interesting that time.

    Whats yours?

    My favourite was when i had a couple of free tickets to go and watch Spurs play. Had passes into a suite to have food and drink before and after the game and at half time.

    Sitting in there after the game and all of a sudden loads of security walked in, then followed by Martin Jol(who was the current manager). He sits on the table next to me and says hi, but with him he had some Dutch family/friends who came and sat on the same table and then kept going to the bar and bringing me back Jack Daniels!!

    After this we left and as we went downstairs in the reception of the ground misses decides she needs to run back to go to the loo, so im standing there all alone, then turn to my left and standing next to me was Robbie Keane.

    Me being half drunk turn and start talking to him like hes my best mate! Anyhow he signed my programme and off i went all happy!

    i said hello to Janet Jackson in the MGM Grand hotel in las vegas 4 years ago. She was stacked up with security and i just impulse shouted hey Janet! she waved and said hi quietly.

    i met David Seaman and Martin keown at an arsenal soccer school when i was about 11. Both nice blokes.

    I saw Ian beal (dunno his real name) at a BP petrol station in milton keynes. he was filling up his black aston martin. I double took coz i was just looking at the car then i noticed him with dark shades on looking miserable. Quite funny really not one person said hi or asked for his autograph. Probably too busy to notice mind

    Have been in Emmerdale a few times. They used to film it at my school. Haven't watched it in years though....in fact, I think I actually only watched the episodes I was in.

    Also, i'm on the gadgetshow most weeks. Everytime they advertise the live show at the NEC arena me and my brother can be seen in the large crowd waving. He took me with his work (owns his own technology site, so we had press passes). So there you go! I'm on tv more than a lot of 'famous people' haha!

    I worked at gerrards house for about a year, it was formely fowlers, but I do not like football at all so it was no big deal, prob why he didn't mind me being around. Some Liverpool defender lived two doors away but can't remember his name, he was Swiss, gave me some boots that I still have, they're a size 7 though I think! And his Swiss wife gave us chocolates.

    I see Gerrard regularly around coz he lives nearby.

    Also went bowling next to Goldie, the actor/dj, everyone was fixated on his teeth!

    Went on a mountainbike trip to Spain and was Sat behind Mandy and steff from hollyoaks on the plane.

    That's about it. Met various bands but no one anyone would have heard of.

    How long ago was this??? If it was a good few years ago it would have been Stephane Henchoz.... Legend!
    If it was pretty recent then it would have been Philipp degen...... not a legend!

    Can't think of any other players it could have been.

    I'm far more interested by your mountain biking holiday than Mandy from hollyoaks! ha

    And what do you do that warrants being in a man's house for a year? Were you gerrard's butler?

    Well in House of Fraser in Brum just a few months ago, I saw loads of people queueing to meet this dude, apparently he was really famous, so we queued up too and ended up meeting him, and I have to say it is my biggest claim to fame so far......it was Santa!!! :moa:

    OK met Andy Cole in Dubai Airport, met Sean Paul and his entourage at Heathrow Airport coming back from Egypt.

    Was in one of Apache Indians Vids when I was a kid.

    Met Gary Lineker at a footy competition, Nigel Mansell years ago and cant remember any others for now.

    I once had sunday dinner with Lenny Henry, he's a rite character and just like what you see on screen. His wife dawn french was there for a bit too (not sure if their married still). Anyway my aunty is good friends with dawn from when she used to perform in theatre years ago.

    Oh and I once spoke to Gianfranco Zola on the phone when I worked at Barcaycard. I nearly fell off my chair as any Chelsea fan would!!

    Russell Hoult former west brom and derby goalkeeper came with his family to view my mum and dads house, he walked through my bedroom as football was on the tv. Although as i dont follow football didnt have a clue who he was lol. (Nice range rover sport tho) I just said hello.

    Met michael underwood off CITV in a lap dancing club in prague, he was sitting opposite us with a few of his mates,we went over and had a chat, he was hammered lol

    Bumped into Fern cotton on a night out in london, she was with a few fit mates.

    He'd be great to be sat next to on a crashing plane...

    Never gonna give you up
    Never gonna let you down
    Never gonna run around and desert you
    Never gonna make you cry
    Never gonna say goodbye

    On a side note, anyone see him on comic relief? He still looks exactly the same! He's lived in a time warp for the last 15 years.

    My uncles in ELO (Electric Light Orchestra) and I once sat next to Shane from Boyzone on a flight to Boston...shortly before getting on the plane I literally bumped into Goldie (thought he was going to chin me!).

    I've also met the PM and the Pope too!

    Get me!

    I used to work with their number one fan. Seriously, I did.
    She's met them and everything. I think she even runs a fan club.
    Her name is Serena and she's about 4'10 tall.

    Ask him. I bet he knows who she is.

    He's off filming a documentary in LA at the minute so I'll ask him when he comes back.

    I wonder if he's ever had to ask the Plod to remove her from outside his house?!

    Ive met a woman called Mellisa Auf der Maur, after she played a gig. Used to be the bassist in Hole and, for a breif time, for the smashing pumpkins too.

    Every half a year I send an email to Marco Bortolami.

    And Ive played golf (badly) with beefy (read; on the same course at the same time...)

    I'm working on a town hall that is being turned into offices at the moment and when I looked outside on Tuesday Fred Talbot was there in his bubble car doing some filming, I'm guessing for his "Where's Fred" feature on Granada Reports.

    If you don't know he used to be the weatherman that was on the floating map on daytime tv. Good job he isn't doing that anymore, he's a bit of a porker now, he'd probably have to be fished out of the Albert Dock.

    Just remembered this, on my return trip from my honeymoon using Virgin travel, Richard Branson was on the same flight. He never travels by private jet, and insists on using his on flight service. He happily strolled round the whole plane shaking everyones hand, then upgraded half the plane's passengers to premium economy where he sat himself, avoiding the first class section.

    When I was a kid I used to play in a marching band and I had my picture taken with Linda Robson (birds of a feather star).

    I also used to work at a health resort and see Caprice naked getting out of her bath while I was in her bedroom talking to her fella :eyebrows:
    Played snooker with Steve Davis.
    Had a good chat with Frank Bruno, Chris Evan's, Tommy Walsh, Anna Rider Richardson (sp), Charlie Dimmock and lots more :p lol

    They were the good old days :unsure:
