    i have been bought beer by several premiership footballers. which would be great if I followed football, or knew who they were. I also went to a wedding with Jo Blyth the weather girl, which was nice but i prefer the other one, and she knew that.

    I sat next to Vic Reeves in our form room at school for the whole of the 4th year

    I once had a curry with John Peel

    Well, not strictly “with” him, I was eating at The Manzil curry house in Bradford, c1983, and he came in & sat down at the next table but one. The place was otherwise empty

    I have cooked fish and chips for Suggs and Andrew Ridgely many times. Plus the entire Sheffield Wednesday team when they were a bit better than they are now.

    My dad taught Phil Lynott to play guitar.
    He also gigged with Bob Marley.

    Surely none of those mentioned above are bad names…

    Where are the stories about spending your childhood with Jonathon King?
    Dining out with Jeffery Dahmer?
    Helping Hitler with the housework?

    Nice, Jerry Only said sorry after kicking me in the back when he was climbing over some tables and Dez Cadena joined me for a beer, on the same night in CBGBs for Joey Ramones’ birthday party.

    I sold one of my Lake District landscape photos to Nigel Kennedy.

    timmy mallet hit me on the head with his mallet

    sue pollard came back to our house after opening a shopping centre my dad designed.

    bob geldof thought he recognised me at a bbq, he was mistaken and very annoying.

    bruce grobalar used to have a kid at the same infants school as me, he hung around the playground.

    jet from gladiators lived about 4 roads away from me.

    done lots of stuff with various musicians but they’re all from bands that you oldies wouldn’t appreciate, but 16 years olds on facebook would cream over.

    martin clunes is a regular at the market in the town where my mum now lives, hes a nice chap and has some very cute dogs.

    i grew up with a kid who murdered someone in aldershot and cut up the body leaving it behind a bin… apparently he used to scratch me until i cried as a baby :S

    met/worked with a few of the famous names who have been through broadmoor and other psychiatric services.

    and maybe one day… i’ll let some of you meet me, then all this talk of “celebs” will be worthless as you’ll have been able to bask in my glory.
