    Ohh I have met a few.

    Back in the good old East 17 days:eek: me and my friend saw them in the van after the concert and they said give us a scream girls and like love sick puppies we did :eek:.

    One day shopping in Manchester me and my friend bumped into Mark Owen and he stood with us chatting for a good few mins and we were besotted with him after that:D

    I went to Manchester Uniteds training ground when Eric Cantona use to play for them. There was loads of people screaming him and he came to me :D first and gave me his autograph but then he borrowed my pen to sign everyone else's then came looking for me to give me my pen back and gave me a kiss on the cheek and said thanks cant you tell I was well chuffed.

    I saw David Beckham in Mcdonalds in Manchester before he got with Victoria. He threw a paddy because some girls started screaming his name then he stormed out.

    Oh and I saw Gail Platt from Coronation Street shopping in Manchester too.

    Right I think I have finished going on with my little old self for now.:D

    Who have you met?

    Cool thread!

    I've met Amy Lee from Evanescence (back in the day when I used to love them!) :eek:
    Mark Hoppus, Travis Barker and Tom Delonge from (former) Blink 182
    Cristina Scabbia from Lacuna Coil
    Ina May Gaskin (my hero, love her seeing her again in October!)
    Mary Cronk (another hero!)
    Michael Odent
    Denis Walsh
    Jane Evans
    Dame Karlene Davis (not really all that famous unless you know about RCM!)

    Mine are pretty special people and most people are like 'yeah who?' but they're all people (bar Dame Karlene!) that I really look up to and admire and I was floating when I met them!


    Sad aren't I :eek:

    Ooh, I've met

    Princess Diana
    (when she was engaged, and very shy and giggly). Needless to say, we didn't chat much...just a Hello, are you having a good time (giggle, giggle) :D

    Cliff Richard: Cooked and ate dinner with him

    Aker Bilk: (oldies might remember the Clarinet player). Played a clarinet duet with him at a pub where I worked. Then went back to his flat

    James Galway: I stole his golden flute for ages before he noticed:cool:

    The Strawbs: Anyone remember that group? They came to our house for tea when they were at their height with 'Part of the Union'
    Now I'm a union man
    Amazed at what I am
    I say what I think, that the company stinks
    Yes I'm a union man

    When we meet in the local hall
    I'll be voting with them all
    With a hell of a shout, it's "Out brothers, out!"
    And the rise of the factory's fall

    Oh, you don't get me, I'm part of the union
    You don't get me, I'm part of the union
    You don't get me, I'm part of the union
    Until the day I die
    Until the day I die


    Cool song :D

    Matthew Kelly: But only bumped into his trolley as ASDA :D and we apologised to each other.

    Some famous newsreader who I chatted with for a couple of hours. Didn't have a clue he was famous until we finished talking and DH told me :D Still can't remember who is was...but DH says that anyone with an ounce of intelligence would have known :D:eek:

    I dated Frank Sinclair (Chelsea Football Club) in the 90's - when I was thin on course lol.
    Bruce Forsythe - he gave me a £40 tip and a bottle wine after I served him his meal in a hotel when I was a student.
    Brit Ekland - served her room service.
    I went to school with Jonathan Kerrigan (Casualty, Heartbeat, Mersy Beat etc).
    I used to do kickboxing with Enigma from the current Gladiators show.

    No idea, just sitting here in this handbasket minding my own business.:whistle:

    Actually, thinking about it, that's my walking stick. You just stay there on the commode. It looks comfy:cool:

    Oh yes it is very comfy! :D Only trouble is I keep wanting to wee :confused: is that normal at our age? :D:D

    At least it's not one of those ones from the local hospital with the wheels on! The embarassment of being pushed around on a wheely commode still hasn't left my memory 2 years later!! :eek::eek:
