    No I can believe it was Rolf Harris. (just a hunch)

    Seen:
    Gordon Banks, on a train (ok I've seen 100s of football players and the odd musician performing, but that doesn't really count does it?)
    Rich Hall, walking around Marylebone
    Craig Charles in a hotel bar in Maidstone.
    Rich Hall - good call. I've added him to my list, as I've seen him at some London comedy clubs.

    Gok Wan and Matthew Kelly have been added to my list since this morning (as in I remember I've seen them).

    Met the Queen, bowed and said "your majesty" or something (she was visiting a security printing exhibition, my dad was one of the leading UK companies).

    Spoke to Jeremy Clarkson on the TVR stand in Birmingham. He's pretty tall, looks much more weather-worn in RL and he spent most of his time eyeing the ex, the dirty bastard. He was pretty approachable and funny.

    Saw Dick Emery in London with one of his many blonde floozies.

    As a kid, spoke to Gary Glitter in Hamleys, my younger sister got a kiss - hehe.

    Bumped into Harry Enfield in a coffee shop in Soho and actually apologised for doing so.

    Spoke to Paul Daniels (sans wig before he went public) and Debbie Magee in Le Manga, Spain (we had a villa next to his).

    Had a bit of a crush on Lisa Burke (Sky weather girl) and spoke to her on a few occasions in the office, someone at Sky grassed that I liked her (her image was on my PC desktop) and she sent me some signed photos and a letter, which was marginally better than a restraining order.
    If you think my attitude stinks, you should smell my fingers.

    When I was skiing once we saw don Maclean (of crackerjack fame) in our hotel, and in the airport on the way home. I knew he was in the airport because a bunch of scousers started singing "American pie"

    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.
