WHo've you spotted and where?

I was really disappointed not to see any in London My bf gets to see them all the time cause he works in a posh restaurant.

When I was walking by the Seine in Paris the relative silent was disturbed by an armed police raid on a group of criminals. My bf was busy trying to get out the way, whereas I was stood totally ignorant of any possible danger of stray bullets gawping at Yoko Ono! Only famous person I've ever seen and I whenever I relate the tale people just say "who?"

I've seen Badly Drawn Boy a few times but then he is a neighbour, I've seen quite a few corrie actors as well. A lot of minorish TV actors live in the same area as me so I can get to see a lot of famous actors.

Robin Gibb even owns a house 2 mins walk away, however I admit he dosn't live in it

Hehe, you must have stayed behind afterwards like us! My friend insisted on going to speak to him and getting his autograph; I was standing there thinking "I can't believe I'm at one of the best universities in the world and we're sucking up to someone from Big Brother :rolleyes: "

Oh and I saw Joan Collins checking in a hotel for some kind of charity do. She looks about 200 years old.
Talking of Joans. You know Joan Rivers? She has a jewellery range that is on QVC (I was flicking....) and she was hilarious trying to sell that tat.

Excellent! Did he use his terrible puns?
Lol, I have no idea, I was at school. Him and my dad used to quite good friends at school apparently, my dad invited some of his old mates for a piss up once, so i'd imagine he used a few classics.

I met Dave Clarke (techno producer/DJ) in the middle of Leeds! I was well chuffed, had a nice chat with him over a coffee. Having said that, only celeb I've ever met.
