    Walked past Hugh Dennis once.

    I think we all just greeted each other and then later realised who it was.

    I didn't know who he was at the time. Only after he left my colleagues told me. He asked me for help but I told him I was helping someone else and would help him when I was free, or to go to the rear till where someone free could help him.

    Also I found Ken to be bit of a snob in real life.

    I met Susan Boyle. It was really random. I was on holiday in Scotland staying with my Mother's friend and we went to some shopping outlet. We walking into some make-up store and she was there, dancing infront of the shop assistants. I got a picture, she was really friendly.

    I have no awareness of celebs, especially their real names. Oh I forgot to mention I saw david cameron in st james park about a year ago flanked by one big male body guard and one short female bodyguard. Think he was out on a brisk walk during a lunch break or something. All the thick ****ing tourists were taking pictures of the ****ing birds when the ****ing PM walked right past them. Ignorant fools But to be fair to them i'd rather take pictures of birds than a Tory, any day of the week! I ****ing hate tories.

    I've met a few. Most famous one was Michael Jackson. I was only a child back then, and very shy, but he was really nice.

    Aw, I really liked Michael Jackson as well. I do feel very lucky. A friend of my family was a photographer for a big publication, and he asked for permission to take me along for the assignment.

    It was only for a few minutes, that I got to speak with him. And as said, I was really shy, so I didn't actually say much. But it's a good memory, and I remember him being a kind, gentle person.

    Haha aww, hardly.

    I really envy people who have met Sir Terry Pratchett. Would have loved to have had the opportunity to meet him in person. He was my literary hero.

    Spoiler:

    I did actually accidentally email him and he was such a lovely guy. But it was embarrassing all the same.
