Not baby related but-Claim to fame

Was thinking about what famous people I'd met/seen yesterday in the shower(tmi?!) and I thought mine was pretty good. Not sure why I was thinking about this but anyway. . .
Met Jack Dee in a restaraunt in Swansea-well I say met my Gran went over and asked him for his autograph saying 'My Grandaughter says your famous'-as a 14 year old I was about embarassed as possible! Mentioned it to me mate yesterday and said hers was meeting Leona Lewis backstage at X-Factor. How daft did I feel?!
So what about you guys? Anyone met any mega famous people? Can you beat meeting Jack Dee?!!


  • i have not personally but my sister works at edinburgh airport and meets celeb all the time,lucky git lol
  • Not sure who'd I like to meet-maybe Posh just to see what's she's like up close and personal! Mind you I'm pretty shy so not sure what I'd say!!
  • I saw Kym Marsh in Greggs. I literally bumped in to Will Mellor in the trafford centre. I wasnt looking where i was going and when i said sorry i realised who is was. Saw the person who plays Steph in hollyoaks in a nightclub once. I often see Kirk from corrie in asda as he lives not far from me (or did - not seen him for a while). Also seen Tyrone from corrie stuck in traffic near my house. Seen Mercedes and OB from hollyoaks in trafford centre. OB is tiny.

    Best 'claim to fame' is i have touched jason donovan, gary barlow and jason orange. Jason donovan was before his im a celeb come back when he was performing in magaluf. The take that boys was when we went to watch them last year. They walked through the crown after performing on a little stage and they both touch my hand. I was so excited lol

    Mine are not that exciting.
  • No MKT86 am well impressed! Think you've beaten my Jack Dee meeting hands down!! Oh forgot did 'meet' Colour me Bad once-anyone remember/ever heard of them?!?!?
  • I remember them.

    I've seen wet, wet, wet and waved at them at the Ebbw Vale flower festival???

    I've met Austin Healey at a rugby match I was wearing a t shirt and he asked if I was cold. I've met several other welsh rugby internationals (my dad is on the commitee for the Llanelli Scarlets)

  • McFly, G4, John Barnes, Jamie Carragher (sp?), Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen (sp?), Mike McCartney (Pauls brother) and i used to go on holiday with Nicola from Girls Aloud! image
  • Ok am wellllll impressed Royalty and everything! Jason Donavan gets about a bit too!
    Rugby players reminded me; me and Dad met Johnny Wilkinson on a plane coming back from watching England play Oz at Twickernem (how bad is my sp??!) I won the tickets on Radio 1-that has to beat my Jack Dee!!?
    (Colour Me Bad-'I wanna sex you up'-a classic!!)
  • Younger BE members may not remember him, but when I was really young (about 4 I think) I sat on Dave Lee Travis knee as he was opening a new housing estate near where we lived!!
    I've also spilled spinach on Gail Tyldsleys lap in a restaurant, bumped into the woman (literally) who plays big Betty in Corrie and I think that's about it!! not great really but it's my tiny claim to fame!!
  • Oh we saw Lee Evans last week he was brilliant wasn't he? Not sure about the song at the end though!
