Just read Mister Chop''s Dad was Stan Collymore''s English teacher (please feel free to correct any grammatical errors)

Just wondering who amongst us, has walked with the ''stars''?

Mine would be;

I have won an egg and spoon race which had the swimmer Sharron Davies as the judge/finisher/prize giver (it was a bottle of wine before anyone gets excited)

Also, my Sister-in-law''s Mother -in Law (keeping up?), went to school with Adam Clayton''s (he of U2) Mum

I had to help out Gary Lineker''s brother''s gardeners once at work.

My mum served Sir Tom Finney in a New Zealand hotel restaurant in the early sixties.

Can''t get more tenuous than that....

I met the Queen...

Also one of my Mum''s cousins is married to Etienne Pradier, pretty good magician, he was on Penn and Teller last year, and ''fooled'' them. One of the last times I spoke to him, it was a few days before Arsenal played Barcelona in the Champions League, and he was performing for the directors. Got to watch the match as well, essentially he got paid to watch Arsenal vs Barcelona... And he was going on about how he''d rather be watching the Rugby. He did Chelsea''s end of season party thing as well, made JTs very expensive watch disappear.

A number of years ago I was shopping for some lingerie for my wife in a department store and Whitney Houston brushed by me. We left the store at the same time ( but not together ), her chauffeur opened the door of her big black limo and that was the last I saw of her, although her home in New Jersey ( before she died )  was only 10 minutes from my house.

Donald Pleasence - is my dads uncle''s brother-in-law or something like that.

 

Also I have a very good photo with our very own Paul McVeigh on a night out in Naaaarwich. Such a funny story is often told about that night and how he magically appeared like a little leprechaun under my arm whilst i was stood against the bar. Ha brings a tear to my eye just thinking about it.

Oh, Darren Huckerby passed to me once!

Although, it was on one of the Football in the Community things, we all got a picture and a signed ball from him as well. When we were having lunch, he sat in the corner with a huge bag and was signing for about 20 minuets.

Where do I start????/

Went to the same school as Geoffrey Watling, Lord Nelson, Stephen Fry, Clive Baker and Tilly (granted only four of those are famous...you decide!!!)

Once spent the afternoon with Bill Kenwright (Everton Chairman) and his then wife Anouska Hempel (look her up on Wiki) at their house in Holland Park - in fact, the day after Scum won the FA Cup Final.

Taught Mylene Klass the words to ''On the Ball City''

Met Amanda Holden in the Gunn Club

Used to play football with Norman Lamb MP

Played table football with Golden Earring at the UEA

Casted Kate Middleton in a soft porn film whilst she was a student*

(*please note one of the above is a total lie)

I''ve met and spoke to several ex Norwich players in my current role, probably most memorable Darel Russell.

I went to the same school as Chris Sutton and his dad taught me P.E.

We once saw Ricky Tomlinson (jim Royle and mike Bassett) at a charity event at the Houses of Parliament.

I met Justin Fashanu back in the day, he came to watch my brothers team play football for Fersfield against East Harling, they won 21-1, my brother let in the 1 and was most annoyed, one of the strikers scored 14 that day!!

 

Also I met Jon Thaxton recently, he came to our end of season footy due, to do a speech on motivation, nice chap actually, quite small though!

 

I was at an xmas party at Carrow Road a few years ago and Delia and MWJ were there I had a photo with Delia and the cheeky mare pinched my bum!! I might have to get the BBC to look into that one!!

Managed to get invites for me and the kids to the film UP at the BFI on the south bank in London a couple of years ago.

 

Walking down the red carpet, my 7 yr old daughter wanted to take a photo of me and number one son. So we stood there with daughter standing infront of the paparazzi camera in hand telling us to stand closer, left a bit, right a bit etc... after about 30 seconds I enquired to daughter what was taking so long?

 

After a few standard "it''s the big button on the top" and  "press it down a bit till it goes beep" etc. I noticed the paps were killing themselves laughing, I looked to the right and Daniella Westbrook was waiting with her kids, I turned aand said "can you hang on? daughters trying to take a blurry out of focus picture" which made her and the paps laugh even more. One of the paps then took the camera and told daughter to stand with us and he''d take the photo. So their not all bad....

 

Once inside we met Trinny and Suzanna, Johnathan Ross, and Gail Porter (whose even better close up). and a few more celebs.

 

Got into the Cinema managed to get the kids settled and decided I needed a quick loo break before the film started, went out of the door and bumped into Bear Grylls, I apologised and started to walk off when he started talking to me about him being the head of the scout moment, he was even wearing a woggle!!

 

Bu this point I was bursting, so I made yes noises and continued to walk to the toilets......Mr Grylls however continued talking and started to follow me to the toilet telling me how important the scouts were, his role was and what a honour it was...

 

This continued in the toilet, while I stood at the urinal, washed my hands, and walked out with him still talking.  If he was''nt ex SAS and to be honest a really nice guy I''d have told hime to p*** off. I eventually managed to give him the slip in the cinema and sat down to watch the film.

 

After the film had finished I did my own SAS style black ops trying to avoid him ducking behind pot plants and advert boards with the cream of British Celebs wondering why this man and 2 kids were commando crawling down the red carpet [:)]

Oops, I should probably add that it was in the toilets at a local football club.  I had drunk one or two though, and I''m struggling to remember which football club it was.  It was definitely Flecky, though he did seem slightly shorter than I expected close up (overall height wise I mean!!).
