    Met anyone famous?

    This came up after catching up with the wife's uncle who is bar manager of a hotel in Pembroke, Wales. He said that the Harry Potter cast stayed there when filming parts of the last two films there. He chatted with Daniel Radcliff and Rupert Grint while they were both at the bar and said that they were both really nice, friendly lads. Emma Watson though barely made an appearance and was quite "snotty" when she did pop up. He also had a log chat with Warrick Davis (awesome guy!) about his career (Star Wars, Willow and the like) and was saying how everyone used to wind up Harrison Ford on set when filming Star Wars. People would go up to him, give him a poke him and say "George want's you in this scene." Mr Ford would wander off only to be told he wasn't needed. Apparently, he used to get really p****d off about this!

    Anyway, personally, the most famous person I've chatted to is Carol Lee Scott. You may remember her as:

    Met anyone famous?-50502_292786817049_6707224_n.jpg

    I used to work at Morrison's back at college and she lived near by and always came in to do her shopping. I used to love Grotbags as a kid even though she scard me, so whenever she was I'n, I'd help her out with her packing and take her shipping to her car for her. One time she came in and gave me her last colour photo of her as grotbags autographed on there, and even called me a brat on it!

    So, have you guys met anyone famous?

    Princess Anne.
    I sat a couple of chairs away from Stephanie Cole in the theatre this year, the bloke she was with was famous but can't for the life of me put a name to the face.
    Alfie Bow and Aled Jones last year at the Welsh Proms.
    Simon Weston, who was burned badly in the Falklands.
    Precious MacKenzie, olympic weightlifter around the 70s.
    Lee Evans lived a couple of streets away from me, this was way before he was famous, I'm sure our paths crossed as he dated my neighbour.
    Tony Robinson, he sat me in his kitchen with a glass of grapefruit juice. I was there to price up some decorating work.
    I worked on designs for Frank Williams' house\mansion and also Dave Rappaport's house.

    EDIT: What a name dropper

    Tulisa from N-Dubz/X-Factor! (A good couple of years before their first 'hit' - back when they were only just breaking through and being shown on Channel U!)
    Prince Charles a couple of times (not in an intimate setting!)
    Philip Schofield (his parents lived round the corner from me!)
    Davina McCall when she was doing a show called Street Mate (no, I wasn't involved!)

    ....Does Thomas the Tank Engine count?! He came to Yorkshire when I was 4 years old!

    Funny that this topic has come up... I went along to the Chill Factore in Manchester a week last Friday, with a group of 6th Form Students and whilst we were there we bumped into Rio Ferdinand, His Wife and two children! He was happy enough to have a chat and pose for a few photos!

    Met a few others Celebs in random places...

    At that point she hadn't done Big Brother and I wasn't too aware of her.

    I saw him and Feargal Sharkey getting out of a helicopter in Bristol, as I was driving past, around the start of the Feed The World campaign.

    I was also on stage with Alan Taylor of Mr & Mrs in the 70s and around the same time Frank Carson (I didn't like him one bit, even more miserable than Van Morrison)

    I have met loads of boxers, for instance - both Hatton brothers, Micky Gomez, Johnny Nelson, Enzo Mac etc as I used to spend a lot of time watching the shows at the MEN Arena (usually ringside) so my face was recognised by them and you get to talking.
    Also met Henry Rollins, Keith Allen, Tori Amos and even had a kiss and cuddle with Fil the lead singer (FEMALE!!) of a band called Back to The Planet.

    I was the nanny for Sally James's (Tiswas) two children. I met Chris Tarrant, Bobby Davro and Bob Carolgees with Spit the Dog whilst I was down there in Cobham, Surrey. Had a right giggle.
