    Just read woodslous post on my GMTV thread about knowing Kevin Adams who is doing their beach body challenge and wondered who else has a claim to fame?

    My only one is that the childrens pet rabbit was used in a childrens tv programme years ago...

    Oh and my mum backed into Cliff Richards car when I was a kid!

    Errr me and hubbie got cut up in our car by Davy Jones from the Monkees about 10 years ago.. he wasn't a very nice person at ALL and gave us the 'finger' :(

    When doing my 'BTEC in Hotel and Recreaton Reception' I checked in Peirce Bronson at the Hilton Gatwick... I liked that one!

    Su Pollard came to my Great Uncles Funeral and inductioned herself and said "now I know who you are", aparantly my Great Uncles Step-son's best friend was Su Pollard!

    I've hugged Richard Hammond at the recording of Top Gear last June and he isn't that tiny, he's about 5ft 7in. and gorgeous....lol Ohh and James May nicked my autograph pen and never gave it back....lol.

    I've met loads of people when I used to work on the trains - one of my fave 'regulars' was Ainley Harriot as he was always so polite. Not-so-nice customers included Jasper Carrott (who put on a ridiculous posh voice - or maybe he's not really a Brummie?!), and Sophie Grigson who were both very rude. Claudia Winkleman was very, very drunk on the little vodkas we gave away in First Class!

    Errrm...I have made Prince William a cup of tea! (He came to the base that I work at)
    I used to play the guitar with James (lead singer) from the Manic Street Preachers (my mum used to play darts with his Mum).
    I have spoken to numerous sports celebrities when I was an Event Manager which was great fun too.

    I spent my 21st birthday with Stevie Wonder(do you younger ones know him?) and his entourage at Tramps night club in London. I was working at the Royal Garen Hotel at the time and they were all staying there. That was cool had a fab night/day!!!
    After that i worked at the BBC and met many a famous person but i have never been one to be impressed by anyone famous, they were just people to me, some nice and some not so nice.

    Both my children have met Robbie Williams at different times, and he was in a Leeds nightclub once (where my DS was a student) DS rang me and said someone wants to say hello to you - it was Robbie Williams and he called me Mom.......we had quite a chat, needless to say I had always been a fan and DS had told him this.

    Even my DS was 'starstruck' because he had a drink and a chat with Robbie Williams in a nightclub.

    When I was at secondary school, I edited the school magazine and so got to interview Francis Rossi (from Status Quo) at his house. I managed to spill tea on his white carpet - oops!

    And, more recently, a couple of years ago, DH booked a special lunch at the Ivy one lunchtime in London. What a star studded Tuesday it was! In the restaurant (dining separately) were Michael Parkinson, Noel Edmunds, Gordon Ramsey and (the late) Stephen Gately. However, when I went upstairs to the loo, I bumped into Madonna (eeeeeeeeeeeep! complete childhood mega hero) drying her hands - I managed a 'hi' but was basically pathetic :eek:

    I was on television last week! Well, for a few seconds anyway - if you had blinked you would have missed me.

    David Dimbleby, Jeremy Paxman, Huw Edwards and Nick Robinson are all very nice and work incredibly hard.

    I got stuck in a lift with JOhn Barnes,and often see Frank Bruno in Tesco. I work with Adenbuyer (however you spell it, Arsenal) 's uncle. My mate has Nigel Winterburn as her landlord. I couldn't believe it when I saw her tenancy agreement.
