A friend of mine had a cousin who happened to also be a cousin of Jim Kerr from Simple Minds. Although my friend was not actually related to Jim Kerr she referred to him as her half cousin. Another friend used to boast that she and Simon Le Bon were at school together, they did indeed go to the same school but not at the same time. Anyone else got any vague claims to fame?

My DSS used to live next door to Bob Ainsworth. Apparently he used to be a good egg and take the bins out and bring them back in for DSS when he was at work.

I went to school with one of the guys in s club 7.

My cousin is a private midwife and has delivered babies belonging to some very famous footballers.

My husband went to school with the friendly fires

Edited version of my own post. Just fact checked and Google tells me that Paul McCartney doesn't have a half brother, just his full brother, Mike McGear. Process of deduction and elimination reveals that

I went to the same school as Roger McGough's (of The Scaffold, which was also the group that Mike McGear was in, hence the confusion) partners (Thelma Monaghan) son, Nathan Monaghan. Who has since name changed to Nathan McGough. Glad I worked that one out.

I once went into a toilet cubicle after Cat Deeley. I did a poo.

FleagleBingoDrooperSnork · 12/07/2017 18:13

I fell over in front of Robbie Williams on 15 September 1993. He laughed. I am still receiving therapy.

I bumped in to John Prescott getting of a train at King's Cross.

I ran away from Grotbags, fearing for my life (aged 7).

I used to live next door to Timmy Mallet's mum.

Do I win a prize?? Grin

RapunzelsRealMom · 12/07/2017 18:23

An ex-employer ALMOST set me up on a blind date with a US TV Talk show host when I split from my boyfriend ( it didn't work out as we got back together and he's now my husband). I wonder.... Grin

Kittenswithattitudeandchickens · 12/07/2017 18:24

My mum once ran after Christopher Beeny (Upstairs downstairs?) to get an autograph. She also met Bill Maynard back stage at a pantomime and said he had tiny red pants on. Eww

MaureenDodd · 12/07/2017 18:25

I work with someone who's husband is good friends with Ian Brown of The Stone Roses.

Unfortunately I don't know their music, but I will happily roll this out for the purpose of fame by association 😀

Itsmytemporaryname · 12/07/2017 18:28

Ooh Maureen. When I was younger someone gave me the address of Mani from the Stone Roses and I wrote to him and asked if he wanted to be pen pals.

I worked in a post office where an ex member of Iron Maiden used to come in regularly to post things. I didn't know who he was until someone told me, not my kind of music.Grin

Also I dated someone who was in Big Brother but that's not really a celebrity and not really a tentative link as we DTD. We definitely linked. Grin

Superpretzel · 12/07/2017 18:32

I occasionally get on the same train as Emily Watson of Apple Tree Yard and Breaking the Waves fame.

Nikephorus · 12/07/2017 18:33

I'm related to Princess Diana. Very vaguely.
