Bored in the office on a hot day – Celebrity Thread
I met Bill Bailey in heathrow baggage claim once, and bizarrely, Phil Jupitus in a pub in Aberystwyth. I have never met any other people of the telly box, and the two I have met were off the same show.
Oh and I once saw shadow off of the gladiators in a traffic jam on the M6. He was driving a vauxhall frontera.Posted 5 years agoIHNMember
I saw Bradley Wiggo and Mrs Wiggo in Wagamamas in Manchester the week after he came fourth in Le Tour. Congratulated him and shook his hand, he seemed nice enough.
My friend’s son once wiped snot on Vic Reeves jacket.
Saw Kevin Grand Designs “it’s just vaaaaast”, “the question is, will they pull it off?” McCloud in the Arriba cafe in Portree the other week. He and his Mrs were having a little tiff.
I could go on.Posted 5 years agotheotherjonvSubscriber
Oh, too many to mention:
I was in a lift in a hotel once and the doors opened and Christopher Biggins got in.
I used to get a lift to school with George Cole’s son. Usually his mum took us (she’s also an actress, mainly theatre and radio drama but occasional TV stuff), but once or twice George himself would do the lifts. He had a jag as well.
My wife is friends with one of Mika’s backing singers, who also stood in for Senser’s shouty frontwoman when the original shouty frontwoman was pregnant. And through that connection, a passing aquaintance with Skunk Anansie’s drummer (he was in Feeder to), who is her other half.
Just remembered – I met Lisa Faulkner at the Good Food Show last week, and also a few other people who’ve been on Masterchef.
My mate stood next to David Seaman in the loos at Harrods a few years back. ‘Pound for a piss! That’s a bit steep’ was the limit of that conversation.
Need I go on – I’m practically nailed on to be in the next series of Big Brother, I’m that famous.Posted 5 years agoPookSubscriber

I served Arnold Schwarzenegger and his family ice cream in Covent Garden back in the early 90’s.
AND when he couldn’t carry them all he actually said “I’ll be back” then laughed his head off.
Still one of the coolest days of my life.
Basically that’s a story you’ll keep telling even when everyone else is pissed off with you telling it because it’s so good.Posted 5 years agosamuriMember
I once stood at a urinal next to Matthew Kelly.
And I have stood at a urinal next to Bob off Emmerdale. He followed normal etiquette patterns and did not engage me in conversation until after we had finished weeing.
I’ve also shook hands with Honor Blackman.
Big hands.Posted 5 years agoBreganteSubscriber
Julie Goodyear – (Bet Lynch from Corrie) was friends with my Mum and Dad when I was growing up. She used to pull pints in our pub at Christmas and if she saw me walking home From school with my mates she’d pull up in her MG and give me a lift home. Very funny because she was one of the most recognise able faces in the country back then and would usually wear her trademark fur coat and Mahoosive earrings!Posted 5 years ago
