    *My former flatmate's grandfather illustrated The Poddington Peas

    *I once stoody idly by as Neutrino from So Solid Crew was taunted about his surname at a local schools' athletics event

    I saw Andy McCluskey from OMD buying some jumpers in the Liverpool branch of Marks and Spencers last year.

    in a moment of horror that i relive day by day, i ended up on local tv news promoting finger skateboarding (dont ask) stood behind a mock cocktail bar following a john stalker article on drink driving (for those who dont know, stalker was something to do with the police and now sells double glazing or something like that).

    oh, and terry duckworth from coronation street acted crazy in front of me, buying a map when i worked at a bookshop and running clean out the building after cutting in front of the entire queue- i think it was just after the airport 'gun' incident. that was funny.

    i went to school with the manic street preachers, and my sister used to go out with nicky wire. i used to see them out drinking in blackwood with their eyeliner on, very brave for the valleys. they used to leave at 10pm rather than at closing time to avoid getting their heads kicked in. of course now they are local heroes to the same meatheads that would have assaulted them before they were famous.

    this is a tenous one. ian beale from eastenders is my uncles (by marriage) cousin.

    obviously this will give me loads of kudos.

    jesus, its all coming back now.

    i was lost in soho the other day and asked this balding middle aged american who looked vaguely familiar for directions. he was quite drunk and with these young women. he found it really amusing that i'd asked him and kept slapping me on the back. as i wandered off, none the wiser about directions i realised it was david soul.

    Once, i fixed my shoelaces in a staircase. When i stood up, George Clinton stood next to me, green dreadlocks and all! I shook his and and thanked him for all his amazing music.

    My uncle is a direct (and illegitimate) descendent of a french queen.
