This is a question Shit Claims to Fame II

My car was in the Specsavers advert with the old lady and the loud stereo. Not me. My stupid blue Nissan Micra. Tell us about your brushes with fame.

Nightshade from Gladiators
Came to my mum's 40th birthday party. She's also slightly matey with Steve Redgrave.

Also, my great uncle once got stuck in a lift with Ieuan Evans (Welsh Rugby number 14 in the nineties) for about ten minutes. Apparently he's a cunt.

Sat next to Kate Lonergan (of Maid Marian and Her Merry Men fame) on the train from Manchester to London
She shared the haul of booze she'd just bought from M&S with me and we talked about that awesome show the whole way. Best train journey ever.

She signed the book on pirates I was reading for me (complete with arrow doodle) and gave me a kiss goodbye. I think it was meant for my cheek, but weirdly ended up on my chops after some awkward head movements. Not that I'd complain, had a massive crush on her when I was in school.

Mr. Bronson off Grange Hill got me by the ear
It was Michael Sheard at some sort of sci-fi convention, and he was pissed up with a can of Special Brew in his other hand, but I still got a photo of it. Fucking legend.

That and I met the mad janitor bloke off "Take Hart", Mr.Bennett.

Beat that!

Ginger Cake Refusal
I took Rod Stewart a pavlova when simply red played at a winery I was working at. He didn't want it, so I ate it instead. Oh, and I sat on Frank Bruno's knee at the Blackpool olympics - the only thing my mum had for him to sign was an opened envelope (which I think she still has!)
***edit - Blackpool Illuminations! Nearly weed on readback!

I nearly ran that there David Beckham over sometime around 2002.
He'd gone and done some injury to his foot and the country was on tenterhooks as to whether he would be fit to play in some World Cup game. Something to do with him kicking a ball around a bit in front of a load of overweight people who also dressed up like footballers whilst waving scarves around and singing racist and homophobic songs.

On one of the rare occasions where there wasn't much rush hour traffic in Alderley edge, probably school holidays, I had to slam on the brakes for this beanie hatted muppet who leapt out of his fancy Bentley and hobbled across the road with his leg in a cast, Probably to get a copy of Razzle or some Rizlas for his wife.

I gave him a blast of me horn and a curse and when he turned to wave an apology I realised it was only Beckham himself. Makes me wonder if I'd have hit him and put him out of the ball playing game whether I'd have had to go into hiding for a few months. Or years.

Said hello to Kate Moss
She was walking near Oxford street surrounded by burly guys in badly fitting suits. Had no idea who she was (I realised later) - just knew that I knew her face so assumed she was someone I knew.

She ignored me and her presumable bodyguards / minders / door-openers glared at me

Jo Brand's brother once called me a twat.
He was my GCSE physics teacher, and he scrawled "twat" in the margin of a test paper when I got a question wrong.

I used to run a vintage clothes shop
Jimmy Carr came in one day and asked how much a shirt was. I told him it was £15 and he put it back on the rail and politely left.

Penny pinching cunt.

After a Comedy Store thing I
Asked Tony Hawks to sign my fridge, looked like a twat because I thought that this was original and then looked like an even bigger twat when of course I didn't have it with me.

I met William Roach once. Ken Barlow from Coronation Street.
He shook my hand and said "Hello".
Then he signed an old lady's scarf.
The whole memory keeps me warm on cold nights.

I had a 'starring' role in Bergerac
Episode 8 I seem to recall, the one with the Luftwaffe pilot in it.

Years later John Nettles' black labrador would attack my pet rabbit. Never forgive, never forget!

My car, the attention whore
I've got a blue Nissan Micra. SHUT UP. When I bought the thing out of sheer empty-pocketed desperation, I had to wait for a week to pick it up (and got a discount) because "a production company is using it to film an advert".

Oh, that's nice.

Imagine my surprise, then, to see it several weeks later in this here advertisement for Specsavers.

Yes, I've got That Granny Car.

No, the stereo isn't that loud.

And yes, it failed the MOT the following year because the suspension was fucked. Also, the dead granny tied up in the boot.

Cherie Blair
Do you remember the time Cherie Blair got caught without a ticket on the Thameslink? She only had Euros on her or something.

I walked past her that day at the ticket machine as she was fumbling in her hand bag. If she had only asked, I could have refused to lend her the money!

My dad used to think he went to the same school as Cliff Richard.
"He's must have been a couple of years above than me. I don't remember him." Then one day he found out it was a different school with the same name.
