Norman Wisdom (RIP) - great guy
That's about it I think!
Al Bean, and a few other astronauts. Was at 6th form with Colin Firth. Lit "Sweeny Todd" with him playing the barber...
Prof Brian Cox whilst he was a student and still playing for D:Ream, he worked in the laboratory I looked after and then I was occasionally working with him until 5 years ago when I left the University.
Also Patrick Moore & Sir Francis Graham-Smith Astronomer Royal.
I also worked with Prof Gleeson who is not famous but she did help invent colour LCD displays.

met a few "celebs" in passing (Paul Daniels, Lionel Blair, Bonnie Langford, Prof Heinz Wolff, Tony Adams, Joe Corrigan)
did a survival course many years ago with Iain Thomson and Lofty Wiseman as instructors. Both should have been celebs in the same vein as Bear Grylls and Ray Mears but they were from a slightly different era.
Bumped into Pete Winner (aka Soldier I from the storming of the Iranian Embassy) at the Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford in July this year. He was signing copies of his book and was happy to have a chat.
Mostly just sports people:
Duke of Edinburgh
Mostly at the same event but still counts, I hope!
Ooh, forgot Rick Wakeman - he used to live next door to a friend of mine!
Anyway, I've met John Helliwell from Supertramp he used to live locally to me so bumped into him in the post office, bank etc and at events at a school I used to work at. Literally bumped into Dr Christian from C4 embarrassing bodies in London on Regents street the other year he's very tall and did appologise as he was talking on his phone at the time and didn't see me. Me and Tim walked into Ted Kravitz from the BBC F1 coverage the other year after the F1 at Silverstone, and I met Carol Vorderman back in the summer, she's very stunning for her age and a very witty speaker she gave a love speech at the event I was at
Interesting thread.... now here goes - not many but I'm sure to have forgotten some... (some are Welsh target audience as well).
Most of the Ospreys
A lot of the Welsh rugby team
and this weekend I met........Wynne Evans - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia -
Also every so often I see Dan from Friends Electric | Kostenlose Musik, Tourdaten, Fotos, Videos - he is my cousin.
Um- anyone else? Cannot remember at the moment,
oooo - coming back. Bet Jean Michel Jarre in Birmingham a few years ago after his concert. We were in the same hotel.
