    I met David Attenborough once a few years ago when I went to see a preview film of one of his documentaries. He was really lovely and friendly.

    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
    That's really cool!! She seems like she would be super nice to her fans

    I saw him walking the streets of london a few years back, complete with sherlock attire. I freaked out, ran up to him and asked for a photo. then once I looked at him properly I realised he was a lookalike
    I just said "oh....you're not..." and he laughed at said "let's take a blurry selfie together, you can tell your friends you met the real guy" which I thought was nice of him

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

    Need to flip it around

    I've met Manic Street Preachers and Atomic Kitten at CD signings.

    Catherine Zeta Jones' and Michael Douglas' child went to the summer camp I worked at this year, and I was friends with Woody Allen's youngest daughter, Manzie, although I didn't see Woody himself.

    There's a few West Bromwich Albion players that are members at my work, Boaz Myhill and Chris Brunt are really lovely guys.
