    I once saw Michael Douglas in FAO Schwartz in NY, it was ace, he was one the up escalator and I was on the down.
    I nearly broke my neck turning round and talking to him, he didn't have time to stop but he was dead dead nice and smiley ;)

    Neil (Dr) Fox!
    The Krankies :eek: I was only about 6 so thought it was rather cool at the time!
    John Nettles, and I sat on his lap, don't worry I was 7!
    Bonnie Langford, again when I was about 6/7

    And a cool one Sheryl Crow :D
    Oh and an Irish folk band called Celtus, met them all a few times plus all their families, I was so obsessed with them at one time lol!

    Lots, but they're all Sci-Fi, Fantasy or Horror authors, so most probably won't recognise the names. I've had pizza a couple of times with Stephen Moffatt (he who is taking over from Russell T Davies for next year's Doctor Who). My other half bumped into David Tennant on the Tube a few years ago. I also had Dave Gibbons as my Tai Chi instructor one day. That was strange :D

    I live just around the corner from John and Norma Major -- I have seen her at the post office and him at Tescos. I said to both of them, "Please feel free to come over any time and have a go on the trampoline." They haven't shown up, yet.

    MM

    Also, I have seen Princess Diana in Harvey Nichols (years ago -- she was being led through to "personal shopping"). I stood next to Maggie Smith in Harrold's when she was trying to buy highball glasses as a Christmas gift (very rude to the cashier). Saw George Michael in a Paris Nightclub (surrounded by minders) before people knew he was gay. Saw Denzil Washington at Planet Hollywood in London (he was being quite charming to the hostess), lots of these kind of things, etc.

    I forgot the best most recent almost met a famous person -- last fall I was in London with a group of American ladies, we were on our way to have dinner before we saw a show.

    As we walked past this restaurant there were all these paps on the pavement outside. I said to one of the ladies I was with... "I wonder who they're stalking?" And, another lady answered, "Paris Hilton is in there."

    So, we stopped and stood with the crowd for a minute or two waiting to see if she would come out or into view... then, I thought about what we were doing and said, "What are we waiting for? Paris Hilton? That tramp. She is an embarassment to Americans. Let's go to dinner." And, as soon as I said it -- not only did my group of ladies move on, but the whole pavement (photogs excluded) started to move on. LOL

    ETA: Just remembered I saw John Daly outside the Xtra Vision up town. He was filming his show at the Burnavon and I drove past in car. I bet noone knows who he is lol.
