This is a question Celebrity Encounters III

I once stood next to Ian Beale out of EastEnders in the gents' toilets at the BBC. BEAT THAT. Tell us of celebrity encounters that went well, or meetings with the famous that ended up as a complete disaster. (And we'll take it as read you've just made up a "I got touched up by Jimmy Savile" story, OK?)

I stood behind Craig Charles in Manchester airport with my boss.
I was waiting to fly out of Manchester airport and there was a big line for security. I stood behind this guy and asked him if this was really the queue - he said yes.

A little while later it dawned on my that it was Craig Charles. I wanted to confirm with my boss, who was flying with me, so I wrote a message on my phone and showed it to him. At which point he read out really loudly "IS THAT GUY CRAIG CHARLES?"

RP: I was once mildly insolent to Craig Charles
A looooong while ago, the company I work for did some computer graphics for BBC Manchester's TV programme "Cyberzone" (not that anyone's ever heard of it, though). It was fronted by Craig Charles, and I had met him briefly during the pilot episode.

When we went to shoot the series, during a lull he came over to me and said "Hmm, you seem familiar, have I seen you before?"

I replied that I had worked on the pilot, and that he, too seemed somehow familiar and had I seen him somewhere before?

Lost for words, he had no choice but to slap me playfully round the face, Eric'n'Ernie style.
