You know, a really bizarre link / tenuous link....the looser the better !

For example, I went to a pub about 3 years ago for Sunday dinner with the then Missus

I went to the toilet, washed my hands after but as the dryer wasnt working came through the door on the way out shaking my hands dry in front of me, only to literally bump into the Page 3 slapper Jody Marsh coming out of the Ladies....it looked as if I was trying to grope her !!!

A brief fling with a young lady who promptly dumped me when she was offered a recording contract.............

Saw here a few months later on Top Of The Pops - and she hasn't looked back since............ mind you, neither have I, of course.............

how about Belinda Carlisle counting out loose change for me?

Carole Decker from T'Pau groping me (while her husband looked on disaprovingly)

Phillip Green telling me I had sticky tape stuck to the sole of my shoe?

Damon Hill nearly running me over in a car?

There are a lot more, but not as tenuous/tedious..

Default Re: What your most tenuous / ludicrous claim to fame ?

Thinking About it, I have quite a few....

My mum's really good friends with Michael Cains daughter Nicki, I actually played PS3 with her when she visited us at Christmas (Never met her Dad though)

I won a competition to go to BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge to meet and watch Nelly Furtado perform, whilst there I was sitting in the Radio 1 staff room playing Xbox with Vernon Kaye, I also met Jo Whiley at the same time.

I have pretty much met everyone from the UK Garage & DnB scene from working in Ayia Napa and DJ'ing over the years, most of you won't know them but the most famous would include: Artful Dodger, Misteeq, So Solid Crew, Oxide & Neutrino, DJ EZ, UK Apache, Spooney, Trevor Nelson and many others.

I had dinner with Jilly Cooper at a dinner party at my mum's friends house once.

I met Chris Moyles at the Leeds game at Christmas

I met Jeremy Beadle at the Motor Show

I met Olivia (Max Power Beauty) in McDonalds in B'ham

I met Paul Daniels whilst Christmas shopping in London, now that's magic

I met Ian Wright at Barasti

I met Analise Hartman from the popular Australian soap Neighbours at a charity thing in Gloucestershire.

I'm sure there are loads more that I can't remember.

and I translated for 'So Solid' Harvey, so that he and the Misteeq girls (and very nice they were too) could get a coffee and some food at Barajas Airport..
