    Saw Stella McCartney at a posh restaurant two nights ago.

    Also a few years back stayed at the same hotel as Madonna and Guy Ritchie.

    Had a chat with Guy. Nice bloke.

    I was a kid. I remember he was a great guy though.

    1970 in Sydney... I won a colouring competition where the prize was a trip to Australia to meet Skippy and Gary Pankhurst (Sonny). I was on a kid's TV show, Skippy had a turquoise diamente collar and pooed on the studio floor; it looked like mustard. Also went to the outback station and got a whole bunch of toys...

    (Ssshhh... there were six Skippy's in total; each with their own special ability. One for close-ups, one for jumping etc.)

    You win hands down, Skippy, beat that anyone. (but don't spoil it for me, six Skippy's) :)

    My best I think is Judge Jules.

    Hmmm, I met Sting at the Cannes film festival last year, and I caddied in a group that Michael Jordan played in at a golf club near me when I was a kid.

    I guess that's about the extent of it. Nothing as cool as a kangaroo.

    Nigel Mansell (my hero at the time) + most of the current F1 + Indycar/Champ Car Grid.

    Would love to "meet" Britney....:D

    Oh and I bumped into Christina Aguilera a few years ago. She came out of a clothes shop and I bumped into her (tiny) said sorry and got a "no worries". The big bouncer dude gave me a right stare! I thought it was here but thought it couldn't be, that was until I heard on the Radio that night she was in town.

    The most famous? That's an easy one. Nelson Mandela :)

    He sat three rows in front of me at The Three Tenors concert in Pretoria in 1999.

    Yes. This is very true. He did roll* around my living room, drunk, but sadly not in the blobby suit.
    *I should probably point out that this was all very innocent!

    Oh yeah so I've also flirted with Christopher Eccleston on a train from Manchester ;) bumped into Bill Bailey several times, sat next to Chris Evans in a pub in Belsize Park, seen a few BBC people hanging around west London, even partied with some TV presenters in the past... :rolleyes:

    QEII cut me up in her Range Rover a couple of years ago, coincidentally she was on her way to have dinner with my Dad and sister. I think I had pizza out that night.

    I sat next to Paul Young to watch Crocodile Dundee at the cinema.

    I had to ask Steve Collins to 'move on' 'cause he was hanging about reading Boxing magazines in a newsagent I was working in without paying for them.

    Shortly after that I was on a flight with Nigel Ben.

    Nigel Mansell nearly ran me down in his golf cart on a course (he's a grumpy bastard)

    Derek Warwick and I had a bounce together on a soap bubble covered bouncy castle. It was about 10years ago and I saw him again a fortnight ago and he remembered it and said hello.

    Lawrence Llewellyn-Bowen flounced past at the airport once.

    Keith Chegwin was sat across a table on holiday once (really messy eater)

    I’ve sold porn (lots of porn) to Jack Higgins.

    The guy who invented the Black & Decker WorkMate™ and part of the Lotus Elan loves to talk about how great he is when I met him.
