When I was 17 I used to drink in the same pub as Iain (M) Banks (I had a job in the offices opposite, so it was our default place) and I guess there were a few other famous authors who drank there. I spoke to him about meat pies once.

Christopher Cazenove off Dynasty bought the first apartment I renovated when I was ~19, was a thoroughly nice guy, but he flew up from London to Edinburgh wearing tennis whites and was dreadfully unprepared for the difference in weather (it was like 7c and pouring).

I've met a ton of Dr Who actors/VO artists since I worked for a related company for a few years and went to tons of meetings with them. Almost without exception they are all nice people.

My sister-in-law used to work at some very expensive hotels, and although she didn't bang any real celebrities, she did bang a lot of their (adult) children, including David Bowies son.

A few more.

A friend of mine at school had a relative who was fairly high-up in Wonderland Promotions, which handled a lot of gigs by big artists in Northern Ireland. She scored us VIP passes for The Prodigy and Utah Saints back in the mid-90s and I met them backstage. Keith from The Prodigy :rip: was sound and spent some time trying to teach us his mad dance style. Liam was fairly quiet and disinterested, but one of my mates was big into techno music production, and he opened up once they started talking about synth-nerd stuff. Maxim was really chill and a perfect gentleman, completely at odds with his manic on-stage persona.

I can't remember anything about meeting the Utah Saints.

I briefly saw Jennifer Aniston towards the end of the Friends run. I always thought she was pretty, but Monica was more my type. IRL Aniston was, and probably still is, astonishingly attractive.

A friend and I once saw Jarvis Cocker cycling across Hammersmith Bridge. For some reason my friend screamed out "WILLIAM SHATNER" at him and caused him to wobble on his bike.

At primary school we went to the Ulster Hall in Belfast to see Johnny Ball do some show called "Mathemagic" or "Magic with numbers" or some poo poo. At one point he asked for kids from the audience if they had certain denominations of coins they could bring up, so he could do some maths with. This resulted in him being pelted with coins like a black Premiere League player taking a corner.

The guy in the housing association flat above mine in st Jamesí park used to deal coke to Channel 4 executives out his window.

He was so enormous he could barely get out of his sofa, and in the end they came into our flat to brace his floor via our ceiling.

im quite angry tonight because my parents were supposed to be out of quarantine this morning. we did everything how youre supposed to do it, paid all the moneys. and they arent.

its my nephews birthday sunday and theyve put up with all the poo poo we've all put up with for so long. but when you make your best effort to do what you're told and youre still hosed it saps your energy.

i can only blame the tory government cunts but where does that get us? its just absolutely gut wrenching to hear my mother tonight, through not tears because shes tougher than me, say her cancer diagnosis was nothing compared to being told she can't go to her nephews birthday after a year of loving doing everything right and now the stupid test isnt back in time. i'm just beyond cross.

My dad was friends with David Seamanís brother and we once went to a BBQ at his house. David was there and it was not long after World Cup 2002 and my grandma kept pointing him out and telling people ďhey look itís that footballer who canít catch the ball!Ē As if no one knew who he was. He was laughing about it and pretending like he didnít care but it was blatantly obvious that he was actually loving fuming.

the more obvious joke would be to follow him round going "its seaman on the barbecue," "its seaman on a chair" "i keep seeing seaman on things in this garden"

then when he snaps you pretend not to know who he is and point to the spunk you stealthily planted earlier

if you ever find yourself at a garden party with david seaman again you can use this

Speaking of Dr Who, I've met Louise Jameson (Leela, companion of the fourth doctor, and also I guess she was in Eastenders and other stuff) a good few times back in the 90s. She was (and I think still is) friends with my mum because my brother and one of Louise Jameson's kids were in the same local youth theatre group and my mum got chatting with her and they became friends. She seemed nice.

Louise Jameson showed up at the funeral for my boyfriendís aunt, and he said she was very lovely too. He didnít know she knew his aunt at all.

Thats three of ours innit...to one of yours. You know mate I really think we ought to even up the average!

I've been in a lift with Martyn Lewis, the newsreader. He stood motionless at the back, rather resembling a tailor's dummy.

In a corner shop close to the London Dungeons, Christopher Biggins and Barbara Windsor barged past me out of the door, into a Morris Minor estate that was waiting outside.

I know someone who has worked with Jim Davison and Jessie J. Both are very unpleasant people. Davison is banned from other 23 theatres in the country due to being rude and lecherous. Jessie was rude to the technicians. The electrician was summoned to her room and she demanded, "Why haven't you fixed my lights yet you (word I will get banned for)."
Sadly her light was fixed.

I knew someone who worked security at Leeds O2 and he said Jessie J acted like a diva and only 11 people turned up.

Sam Smith performed there to a tiny crowd before anyone knew who they were and everyone working there stopped what they were doing and watched them with jaws on the floor.

I used to work in the Graduate Centre in Cambridge as a catering assistant / waiter back in the early 90s aged 16.

Steven Hawkings- no idea if he was a nice bloke or not but he had seriously bad table manners. Food all over the table. Couldn't be bothered to get his speech synthesizer to ever say say thank you.

Then I took far to many drugs, failed my A levels and became a nurse. You could do that then, it was a glorious time when you could gently caress up for free. Did my nurse training, while they paid me a decent wage for 3 years.

I met Mr Hawkings again in a hospital as a registered nurse, and he ain't changed, the speech synthesizer was still broken for talking to the working class. I'm not advocating abusing people with disabilities but I have a small amount of understanding for why he was left in the sun by his wife and got heat stroke.
