    For what it's worth I went through 7 years of primary school in the same class as John Higgins (yes we're the same age but he looks MUCH older ). We also went to the same high school just in different classes.

    Owen Coyle used to work for the same company as my Dad so I knew him before he was a full time player.

    And the guy with the glasses from Black Lace tried to put his hand down my top!

    Re: Brushes with celebrity (was "Claims To Fame")

    Actually,now I think about it this thead throws up a number of issues.
    One of the reasons that I dont go along with this fame thing is that I really object to bowing, scraping and fawning after people who are no better than your best mate but just happen to be blessed with a enviable talent in most cases,certainly in respect of sport or entertainement.
    How on earth could it be justified to give Chris Hoy a knighthood on the strength of winning medals at the cycling world championships.How many footballers are now called Sir.I was at a golf tournement last year where people kept addressing Sir Henry(Cooper) and what is worse I really felt that he expected it too.This sort of cavalier attitude of giving knighthoods to sportsmen and entertainers has devalued the honour and seemingly the reason.
    Mariah Carey takes the fame thing to a new level with her astonishing demands,although from all accounts it would appear that there are quite a few 'stars' who make excessive demands.It beats me why promoters and corporations deal with people like her when there are equaly talented individuals around and much less demanding.
    One of my worst nightmares would be to have to lay the red carpet out and greet someone who I really didnt respect.At this moment the person at the top of that list would have to be the somewhat odious Peter Mandelson.

    Oh, Oh, I forgot one.

    I used to hang about with and go to school with Kevin Phillips I don't know who he plays for now, but he's played footie for England a few times and lots of premiership teams.

    Re: Brushes with celebrity (was "Claims To Fame")

    As a child I was at Clarks outlet place in Somerset, and Steve Cram was signing autographs and advertising trainers. I was the only person who went to speak to him, so had a nice little chat with him and he signed a postcard for me.

    Malcolm Shottom (former Oxford Utd footballer & football manager) lived down our road, so he used to help out/joined in with games on the green when we had village fetes etc.

    A few years ago I won tickets to the Brits and while walking back to our hotel, we bumped into the paparazzi outside the EMI aftershow party which was next to our hotel. Then a glass bottle was thrown out of a window and hit my friend, so we were ushered inside by the bouncers to check she was ok (she's a stunner so not surprising, although don't know how I managed to tag along). So we ended up saying hi to Chris Evans, but wangled our way into the VIP party downstairs where there were lots of famous people (who all looked really bored, and noone was dancing!). We ended up chatting to some random bloke who was the choreographer for the Gorillaz stage show.

    Zoe Ball lives about 5mins walk from me, and have seen her at M&S a couple of times.

    Ok, last one, but I forgot a biggy.

    This is me and Flava Flav from Public Enemy at Prestatyn Pontins Soul Weekender about 20 years ago.

    1) I used to deliver Ernie Wise's newspapers.

    2) I was nearly run over by Sir Steve Redgrave in the middle of Marlow.
