I am in awe of all these people who have met loads of celebrities and have interesting stories to post about.

It got me thinking.......the closest I have ever got was when I was young Tilda Swinton's mum & dad used to let me ride on their estate and one day I patted Tilda's old pony.

And that's it!!

Anyone else got equally tenous sleb stories (and yes I am very bored....)?

I stood next to Tom Conte in a queue in a caff when skiing. He asked me to pass the ketchup in the deepest sexiest voice imaginable. He must have been 25 years older than but swoon he really was lovely (but short). Spent the whole of the rest of my season looking out for him.

My daughter's uncle once got steaming drunk with the Wurtzels.
