    I've met Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt at a book signing

    Simon Neil from Biffy Clyro and the TV presenter Neil Oliver are both from my hometown and I've seen them a few times and I've seen the cast of Still Game in Glasgow.

    Best for last, I got to talk to Damon Albarn after a Gorillaz gig at MEN Arena in 2010 :love:

    Omg, I forgot about Edinburgh Fringe Festival! I've lost count how many people I saw there but some notable ones were Jack Whitehall, Dylan Moran, Sean Hughes and the most random of all - the actress who played Stiffler's Mom in American Pie :laugh:
    Words cannot describe how well jel I am right now


    I've met David Walliams, the Everton FC team (Ladies and Mens ) :fan: and a couple of actors

    My friends dad was in a famous 90s techno band (10 points if you can guess which one).

    Have you ever met a famous person? Maybe you're even related to one!

    this is one of my favourite stories ever, so forgive me if it's long.

    my friends dad used to own a fancy restaurant in london. once when I was around 7/8 (ish) he let me and my parents have a meal in the vip section. at some point my parents were suddenly all 'omg!' because some famous guy walked in, but I had no idea who he was so I wasn't fussed. we went over to him and asked if he would sign a napkin. we got to talking and next thing I knew we were sitting having a drink with him. I was young, so I don't remember every detail but he seemed to be a very funny guy who made a lot of hand gestures and funny voices and had me cracking up laughing.

    eventually my dad said 'hannah's a big fan of your movies' to which I (in true child fashion) replied that I didn't even know who the guy was. he burst out laughing while my parents tried to apologise on my behalf. now, this part I remember like it was yesterday. he put his hand over my eyes, and said "listen closely, hannah...........ten thousand yeeeeeeeears will give you such a crick in the neck!" to which I shouted, louder than is appropriate in a super posh restaurant, "IT'S THE GENIE!!!!!"

    so yeah, that's the time I met robin williams. warms my heart but brings tears to my eyes thinking about it. I wish I could remember it better, though.


    other than that, I once saw stephen fry in a pub. people kept going up to him and asking him for pictures and signatures and he looked a bit overwhelmed and stressed out by it all so I just gave him a smile and a nod from across the bar, which he returned.

    So jelly. He's one of my absolute favourite people. He did a talk at my uni but I couldn't get tickets - they got snapped up in about 1 second even though they gave alumni the chance to get them first

    I met Norman Reedus (he's so lovely), and a few other TWD people. I met a bunch of musicians when I was a bit younger and used to go to gigs all the time. I'm good friends with a group of YouTubers as well, though not sure if they really count as famous

    I voted 'Yes, I know one very well'.
    Whilst they're not an international superstar or a well known person, they were a finalist on the X Factor. I talk to Bupsi.

    I've met Taylor Swift (although i am pretty sure most people hate her these days) I've been a fan for years and her management chose me and a few other fans to listen to her album 1989 pre release with her. They were called the Secret Sessions. It's a cool story to tell, she was lovely and she knew everybody's names without us having to tell her
