Walked past Jade Goody while on holiday in Spain a couple of years ago. Never noticed her at first, more the two enormous bodyguards she had.

A Bono lookalike comes in to my work quite often. Was utterly surreal the first time he came in, now it just amuses a great deal.

Billy Connelly comes in whenever he's up this way too.   

Lots of the Aberdeen players, but sadly, never Jimmy Calderwood. Bah.

Re: Celebrities you've seen in the flesh - where and when

I saw Paul Walsh walking through Chichester High Street and Jimmy Nail looking very sheepish in Amsterdam's Red Light District.

Glenn or Gyln or whatever that twat was called from Big Brother (the welsh one) - running through Cardiff weilding a lottery ticket

We saw him in the Scream bar in Nottingham once. I wanted to talk to him but didn't. Good story, I know.

I also saw Kenny Burns going into a Forest match last season.

Saw Timothy Spall walking round Weymouth last summer - literally saw him about 5 times in one afternoon, which was bizarre.

Re: Celebrities you've seen in the flesh - where and when

I saw Yannick Gers from Iron Maiden in HMV Middlesbrough years ago. He was checking out the Wishbone Ash Cds with a woman who was full on Rock Chick. They then went to China Cave to look at little glass ornaments.

When I was 9 I saw 'It aint Half Hot Mum' live in Bournmouth on holiday, saw the lot Estelle, Davies, Hayes, Bates and even 'mr la-di-da' gunner Graham! A couple of years earlier I saw Terry and June live too, in Bognor I think? The day before the show, they paraded through town in a horse drawn carriage, Terry Scott waved at me, which was ace!

Marv, I'd heard a couple of the Maiden fellas live in Yarm, I'd doubted it, but I guess it's true........... Mauritious, Monaco, the Caimen Islands and... Yarm, it's a veritable travelogue of exotic delights!
