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:
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?
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 :o
I've met and cooked food for various people including feeding all of Queens of the Stone Age and there crew at Leeds 2010, I feed the Force India F1 team at the British GP 2009.
Also met a load of the hollyoaks cast at glastonbury a few years ago and cooked for them, and also Heather from Eastenders and her son!
I've also thrown Nann bread at Phil Jupitas :)
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!)

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...
Oh and I've met Prince Charles when i was at school as he came and visited the school farm!
You met Davina.... and she's still breathing... I'm disappointed in you... to say the very least. :doh:
