I met Gino D'Acampo once; we had so much banter, and he's hilarious.
Also met Dale Winton, who I asked for an autograph (I don't know why...), and he said my pen was gorgeous (it was pink, no surprises there).
My mum used to work for a Marine Electronics company and was at a Boat Festival, she met Timothy Spall and they had a little chat about his boat (berthed in Banff) He was lovely.
I remember when I was 10 or something, we saw Calvin from S Club Juniors in Aberdeen airport. He just stood there texting and listening to his CD Player.

But hands down the best encounter has to be Miriam Margoyles (aka professor sprout) in a cue for the toilets at a theatre, she decided she wouldn't wait and so after chasing the men out of their bathroom ("ANY MEN IN THERE-A LADY IS ENTERING!") she asked me to "stand guard" and prevent anyone from entering the mens toilets while she used them. Very surreal and possibly one of the greatest moments of my life
I once got Chesney Hawkes's autograph in Sainsbury's. I didn't even want it, but it beat trouncing around the cat food aisle. Anyway... He was really nice and also a bit simple, I think: he spent about 10 seconds trying to yank what he thought was a lid off of the pen until I highlighted the fact it was a twisty.
I also got a Hollyoaks actor's autograph in Superdrug. I can't remember his name, but he played an incestual rapist father. He was nice, too.
I know people who know most of the cyclists like Chris Hoy and Victoria Pendleton. Apparently nearly all of them including Chris Hoy especially are fantastic and such nice people. Apparently Nicole Cook is stuck up though, but apart from that they are all really down to earth people, and that's coming from a really nice family.
I met Linford Christie as he came to our primary school. Can't remember much of it sadly
My mum was once in line somewhere and Princess Diana let her go in front. I was just a little baby in the pram My mum said she was very nice
Also if anyone knows who he is but briefly met Mr.Woo the freestlye football champion. He was very cool
