    I can't say that I have met anyone famous.

    However I did see Tom Baker's eyes staring out at me through a gap in the folds of a marquee [guess that doesn't count?]

    Met quite a few Rock/Metal stars.....spent a good hour with Dave Mustaine of Megadeth fame who was actually a really nice guy...chatting about music and stuff.

    Met Peter Steele from Type O Negative too....was a huge guy.

    Rowan Atikinson's brother lived next door to me when i was about 6-7 (at the time Mr Bean was brand new and top TV) so i got to meet Mr Bean many times as a kid, and he knew me by name and would stop to talk to me if i was playing outside

    Ive met alot of bands at the Leadmill in sheffield, was good friend in school with Joe Carnall the lead singer of Milburn
    I work at the school the Artic Monkeys attended so they pop in every now and again to say hello (especially matt helders, who gave me a special edition supremebeing jacket that he designed)

    Also ive met all the disney characters and the muppets aswell (disneyland and universal studios ofc)

    Forgot to mention that I've had a chat with Gabriel Thompson (Mikey - My Family) at a showing of The Merry Wives of Windsor, where he was playing a Frenchman (forget the character name). He signed the booklet for me.

    I've met a few. In the last couple of weeks I've met Janet Street Porter, Mark Radcliffe, Mark Thomas, Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall (third time now), Andy Kershaw, Adam Hart-Davis, Simon Callow and others. As always, it depends on your definition of famous!

    I've also met quite a lot of musicians and vocalists on the British festival scene. Had breakfast with Seasick Steve a few weeks ago, and spent half an hour with Noah and the Whale. Had a brief chat with Tom Jones last year, and said hello to Florence (of the machine). There are lots of other meetings too.

    When I ran a pub in the East End Charlie Kray was a regular. We also had Stanley Baxter, and Lenny Peters (from Peters and Lee) drink in there.
