Ooooh hark at you Jase, with all those fancy royalty etc- how d'you manage it?

Mine are unbelivably bad:

[*]Met Doctor Karl Kennedy from Neighbours. He is so HOT.
And also met Toady.

[*]I once nearly served Jarvis Cocker when working behind the bar at the Octagon in Sheffield.

[*]My ex went to school with Pete Doherty

[*]My brothers housemate's friend's step-mum's sister-in-law's cat once saw Craig from BigBrother1 at B&Q....

I saw Sir Trevor McDonald meandering down a moving walk way early one morning in Nov 03 in Heathrow Terminal 1 - l was off to St Petersburg!

Tom from Big Brother series one (of the tent in the red shorts incident!) came into my old work place

Da from Give my Head Peace (Northern Irish) sort off scarcastic look at the troubles/peace process - compared at a work event which l was helping organise!

I nearly knocked over Viv Richards (cricketer) when he was playing at a charity Cricket match in my home village (l was running down a hill and couldnt get stopped!! I was 14 at the time!!)

I met Kenneth Branagh back in 2001 when he was directing "The Play What I Wrote..." at London's West End. Every single journalist covering the opening night didn't recognise him, but I did (he had always a very peculiar way of walking), and I went after him. I just wanted to tell him just once in my life how inspiring he was, what a wonderful work he had been doing throught his professional life... And I did!!!! He was very kind to me and grateful. He has continued doing a great work ever since.

Skin - the singer of Skunk anansie, saw her when she was buying shoes in London

Alois Vogl (German slalom ski racer)- did not know that he was famous, we talked at the bar, but I left, because he was really rude, realized he was sort of famous the next day when he won the slalom race in Wengen...what chance I missed ;)
