    I've met Billie Joe Armstrong from Green Day, although it was on stage so it was brief (still managed to kiss him though!). And I've met Paul Weller and Gem Archer from Oasis/Beady Eye.

    The Chuckle Brothers filmed along my street once! I remember when I was about 9 or 10 watching it and then being like :eek: THATS MY STREET! ''MUM'' ''what?'' ''LOOK THATS OUR STREET AND THE CHUCKLE BROTHER'S ARE ON IT WALKING, LOOK!'' ''okay.....that's nice dear'' ''No Mum you don't get it, the CHUCKLE BROTHERS have walked on the same street I'VE walked on!''
    Well that's my claim to fame! I think it's a pretty good one xx
    Haha nicely done :P

    I go to the school that Greg Lake went to - my dad was a year or two below him there

    When I was 9, I met Philip Pullman and imitated him in an interview role play. I've also sat next to Kim Clijsters at Wimbledon on one of the outside courts and bumped into Ana Ivanovic the same day. Best one was serving Kara Tointon breakfast when I worked in a hotel restaurant.

    I once had dinner with Dean Macey. I didn't actually know who he was at the time, still don't really know now.

    And when I say dinner, I mean school dinners, I was in Year 4. Something to do with my school's dinner lady being the best in London, for some reason, I was too young to remember / care

    Richard O'Brien and Julia Roberts are the two biggies, naming other people like Craig David seems to lessen the coolness of the first two.

    Due to my job and hobbies, yes, name anyone and the chances are I've either personally shaken their hand or seen them up close at the very least.

    From the likes of Sonia from Eastenders all the way through to Billy Connelly and Lee Evans, Kevin Spacey, David Cameron, Brown, Blair, The Queen and not even stopping at Beckham and Jazy Z, Rihanna and more recently Leona Lewis, Imran Khan (Dragon's Den) and Sir Alan Sugar.

    But would you like to know what's such a kick in the teeth? After meeting all of these people.....I have only 2 autographs to show for it and a 3rd that was ruined by rain water.

    I need to actually get these dude and dudettes to sign me off some more!!

    How? When? Where?

    I'm jealous
    I got free tickets through work to a meal in Gateshead where he gave an after dinner speech and you got to get your photo taken with him and stuff.

    He's the only cool person I've met though so I wouldn't be too jealous. Only others I've met are Dale Winton, Jordan, and Nick from the apprentice. Yay!

    When I was in New York last year I met David Blaine and the guy who the movie Jarhead is based upon. Plus I know a few famous comedians like Jason Manford and Sarah Millican, and quite a few of the ones that have been on Michael McIntyre.

    Not quite as cool as some people.
