I was in a Kirsty Wark documentary about a guy with tourettes who lives in my area (who was in a very high profile documentary about him when he was younger). I was working on a supermarket deli counter to earn some money when I was in college. I was seen serving him cheese while being called words I cannot put here! It was really funny in a way because I'm a lesbian and was closeted then and he called me loads of derogatory words for gay and I was like "how does he know and I hope no one hears what he's saying".

He is a really nice guy though. Even though he calls my mum t*tw@ank.

My son sat on Sally James knee on Tiswas at the height of its fame - he was 8 at the time and all our pub customers were jealous.
He was also on Christmas Top of the Pops standing behind Chris De Burg when he was singing Lady in Red.
I was on our local new quite a few times as they always did plenty of the Street questions outside our pub as it was on the Main Road through the town.

Yup! He is really lovely but with having never met him before that time and it being on TV and being all young and not knowing about tourettes it was so mortified. All my bosses told me was that there was going to be cameras in store.

My other halfs step mother was on Wheel of Fortune in the late 90s. We are reminded of it most weeks, and also reminded that the fridge she won on it is still going strong!

Closest I've ever got was when I saw Boyzone outside Top of the Pops once and they filmed us. This was then shown as part of a day in the life thingy a week later on the Big Breakfast and luckily you can only see me as they zoom past in their car.

My sister has danced with the Wanted on Strictly and was one Gabz backing singers on Britains Got Talent the other week. She's also an extra in a film coming out next summer.

Oh and my auntie was on Blankety Blank in the 80's, shes still got the chequebook and pen

I met a guy a couple of years ago who had been an extra on Eastenders - i forget the name of the character he played but he delivered a bed to Christian and Syed - im sure he had "Big" in his name somewhere - maybe a huge fan will know

Edit: Ok after some research i found out his name was Dagenham Dave (a 2010 appearance)

Not to be pedantic but it was called Short Change This is a reply to the user ednuzio too who said 'was it called xchange or something like that?'
Apologies I'm terrible at multiple quoting.

In answer to the OP:
I was on a BBC news report briefly as a kid when they did a news piece on my primary school.

I was on Question Time, the 9/11 10 year anniversary special episode. Just in the audience though, not on the panel. If you freeze frame the beginning bit, you can see me briefly. Also in distant audience shots at other points.

I was also on BBC1 during the Federer v Sergey match at Wimbledon this year. Again in the audience (it counts!). You can see me twice, once at the end after Sergey won the match and is celebrating. I am about 1cm tall on screen. Again, you would have to freeze frame it on iplayer to see.

Yes, Short Change is the one in question. There was in fact a CBBC show called Xchange though.

I've lost count of how many old friends/acquaintances I've seen in the audience of chat shows like the now-defunct Trisha.

One of my former classmates from secondary school was a guest on Trisha (about 7 years after we lost touch), having become a drug addict and prostitute. It was a real shock to see her. I reported this to our former Head of Year when I spoke to him shortly afterwards. All the unsympathetic sod had to say was ''How much does she charge?''

I also saw my former sister-in-law as one of Jeremy Kyle's guests - I hadn't seen her for 15 years, so got a bit of a shock! She hadn't changed one bit.

Back in the late 70s me and a group of four other girls were filmed at the Delta Engineering Training Centre for the BBC. It was a programme about women in men's jobs (yep, to anyone under the age of 35, that was a big deal back then!) We were standing by the milling machine whilst the instructor showed us how to use it..even though we'd already been on that section. My brother in law was on the phones in the studio on Crimewatch when they were featuring a case he was working on.

I believe my Dad was interviewed by Brian Walden about Enoch Powell's Rivers of Blood speech. Dad was a mature student which was virtually unheard of back then!
