    My friend's parents know Stephen Fry. BEAT THAT!

    I was also sitting outside the library the other day and saw the whole 'Anglia News' crew walk past. My heart skipped a beat. ;)

    I'm related to the artist, Colin Self.

    Erm, the answer to your question is that I DON'T know anyone famous.

    My uncle was the drummer in the Boomtown Rats.

    I answered the door to find John Hurt standing there once, but I can't claim to actually know him.

    I know several famous people, but I don't know them that well.

    In fact, to be honest some of them I've only met 3 or 4 times so although I'd say I don't know them that well they'd probably say they don't know me at all, if that makes any sense?

    I know quite a few MPs but wouldn't class them as "famous"...

    Other than that, I'm believed to be descended from a 17th Century author and scholar.

    Have met plenty of famous terns but aren't on speaking terms... :o)

    Edit - Oh, and my sister shagged the bassist (I believe) from Shed Seven so she "knows" him pretty well...

    So no.

    I was on Funhouse when I was a nipper, so I met Pat Sharp (don't know him though).

    Also Chris Barrie bought me a pint once (again - don't really "know" him).

    And my girlfriend and I had a good chat with Jason Donovan a few months back (before I'm a Celebrity...). Nice chap actually.

    So no - I'm not actually friends with anyone famous, if that's what you mean.

    I once shared a first class cabin on a BA flight back from Barbados with Bill Clinton.

    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realise half of them are stupider than that

    About 5 years ago I was offered a 1 day job working for my mates' security firm.
    Turned up and the job was as security for Rod Stewart. Was quite an exciting day, got to see (but not necessarily meet) many celebs that day.

    So, no I don't really know any celebs.
