Did I ever tell you that I saw Keith Chegwin at Malmaison? :lol:

 

When I lived in Manc I was behind Jason Orange in the queue for a cashpoint and it wouldn't give him any money, and I looked after Mark Owens grandma on my ward.

 

I also met and spoke to Harold Shipman on a number of occasions.

 

Oh and Nora Batty an'all :D

Worryingly, I'm from the same city Shipman's from (Nottingham), attend the same medical school he did (Leeds), and lived in the same hall of residence he did. My auntie lives in Hyde, his former stamping ground as well. :lol:

Here's a tip for you then: Don't start your GP career as a doc in Todmorden, and if you do, don't steal Pethidine and self-inject it. Oh, but if you do, then it's okay cos it'll all be covered up and you can then go on to murder 300 people before anyone is suspicious of you....

Seen several 'celebs' down the years like.

 

A lot of NUFC players past and present. Aside from that.....

 

Bobby Gillespie (Primal Scream singer) in a pub in Soho a few years ago.

 

Met Prince Philip when he and the Queen opened the North East Gymnastics Centre (based at my school) when I was 11.

 

Met Mani (ex Stone Roses, now Primal Scream bassist) at Stone Love.

 

Met Goldie Lookin Chain at Northumbria Uni Bulletproof Freshers special in September 2004.

 

Met Muse backstage (I was on the guestlist) at a JJ72 (remember them?) gig in London in 2001.

 

Brian Johnson (ACDC singer), who used to work at Parsons with my dad. My dad's in a band and he turns up at their gigs if he's back in town. Only met him a couple of times though.

 

That's all I can remember meeting or seeing first hand.

 

When I worked at Orange I spoke to one or two.

 

Jack Dee: I kept thinking he's gonna use some really sarcastic putdown, but he didn't.

 

Darren Day: Was an arsehole (didn't suprise me really, as I always had that impression).

 

And, most evil of all......

 

Marco Gabbiadini: The daft sod rang up because he was in Italy and his phone wouldn't work. Had he rang us to have his handset enabled for roaming before he left the UK? No. He'd just assumed it would be OK.

It wasn't. Ha!

Sat next to Jonny Wilkinson on the plane to Newcastle (when I went to see the Norwhich game we drew 2-2, Bellamy and O-brien putting us 2-0 up only for Bentley and Francis to score. :) And if you don't believe it, his autograph is in me wallet, hidden by a pic of the jorman lass :lol: )

 

Jimmy Carr walked past me in a service station (I was on the way to Sheffield)

 

I was inside a lift with BRENDAN SHANAHAN!!! :lol:

 

Saw squillions of NHLers from Buffalo Sabres and Detroit Red Wings in my hotel in Tampa at breakfast. I was in a que for a waffle with Chris Osgood and Kirk Maltby! :D

 

Ales Kotalik sat on the table next to me and nodded at me. :D

 

Looked to my left when I was in the car once and saw John Oster. :icon_lol:

Don't worry Brock, I know who these people are and appreciate it. :icon_lol: As an aside, my mam went to New York at the start of the year and went into the official Rangers shop to pick up some NHL stuff for me. Anyway, she comes back and says there was some bloke in there signing things and offered to sign a Rangers shirt for her to buy, but she didn't know who he was so didn't. Anyway, I showed her pictures of the squad and it turns out it was Jaromir Jagr. Useless bint.

 

Anyway, I have seen or met (non-NUFC):

 

Johnny Wilkinson in Tescos at Kingston Park, bought lots of Bacon that was on 2 for 1 special.

 

John Peel at Glastonbury, doing an early morning link for the BBC when I was on my way for a shit. Gave him a cringeworthy thumbs up. :)

 

Sinbad from Brookside, wanker. Nearly started a riot in our end at the match when he celebrated a Liverpool gola by standiong up and giving us all the Vs. Removed for his own safety, put into the Liverpool end (if he'd been you or me they would have locked him up) then went on Soccer AM a week later to claim he'd been sitting minding his own business when he'd been started on. Deserves a kicking, and I'm willing to volunteer.

Sat in the VIP section at Elland Road in 1995 for england vs sweden. On my row alone there was fergie, collymore, steve watson and robbie elliott.

 

On a plane to Heathrow the morning after the England vs Albania game i was sat next to wooly of the daily star and behind lineker and crookes amongst others. Wooly was writing the next mornings paper on his laptop and when i dared to look at his screen for a non second he took a mega huff and turned his whole body and laptop away from me!

 

Was in Snitch bar in New York with nicole ritchie, huey FLC and jamie discala or whatever shes called from sopranos.

 

My girlfriend also spotted samuel l jackson in times square but turns out it was a wax model. I dumped her when we got back.
