    Yeah met some :mmm:
    Can't say everyone will know them though :ashamed2:

    david alrick - at a book signing at Waterstones - was one of my favourite authors at the time He signed all 3 of the books I had from him and was such a kind man! I think I actually saw him twice at the same shop as he had a sequel at ahha (he didn't remember me tho :emo: )

    As have been to some Everton matches and me and the fam are fans, have met some of the players/managers, including:
    Moyes - was v nice and signed my program yey :ahee:
    everton players such as Mirallas, Arteta (at the time), Fellaini (at the time), Cahill ( :heart: ), Tim Howard - was so sweet omg, he talked to my mum for ages xDDD, and others that I can't remember but I do have their signatures somewhere :ahee:

    tennis players as have been to wimbledon
    Most notably Ostapenko

    christopher eccleston - he was wondering through china town, london when we were :rofl: was hilarious xD

    Last place I worked we occasionally had celebrities visit the office. Some were very polite, others… less so. Ruby Wax (not exactly the biggest name anymore I know, but she'd just released a book at the time iirc) was probably the friendliest, she took the time to say hello to pretty much everybody. By far and away the rudest was Nigel Farage, complete snob to everybody and basically wasn't interested in anything except boosting his own ego.

    I met Rosemary Shrager if that counts. She was really lovely and gave me some advice on cooking.
    Apart from that not really. I did see the Youtuber Ashens once but was too scared to say hello so just awkwardly stared at him while I walked past.
