Roy Keane - was absolutely lovely at his book signing chatted to him & had a bit of a flirt with him he loved it. Genuinely he couldn't have been nicer

My mum met Johnny Depp - she said he was an absolute gentleman and when his security tried to get her to move he told them to leave her through and she got his autograph. She said he was lovely

Lorraine Keane, presenter that used to be on Tv3 was an absolute stuck up bitch. If I hadn't been working I would have told her so too

Helen Flanagan (Rosie Webster)- She was sat behind me when Swansea City were playing at Leeds United. She is going out with one of our players. She is absolutely gorgeous and a lovely girl. At half time, she signed loads of autographs and had photos taken with everyone, she was cheering loudly everytime her boyfriend got the ball and she even laughed and applauded the group of lads sat behind her when they started chanting her name.

Liz McClarnon Atomic Kitten- Bumped into her at halftime during a Swans away game at crew. Neither of us were looking where we were going and we clattered into each other. We both laughed and apologised and we walked back into the stand together chatting away. She also signed every autograph and took photographs with loads of people, a really nice girl.

Gavin Henson- Met him before he was 'famous' and he was very shy but seemed like a nice guy.

I met Hawkwind last week and they were pretty cool guys.

Recent (nice) celebs I have met include:

Eric Burdon (The Animals) - a real gent . We chatted for ages and shared a pint.

Roger McGuinn (The Byrds) - one of the sweetest people I have ever met . He was so down to earth and spent a long time with me . I reviewed a gig he was doing , on my blog , and he read it and thanked me .

Ian Rankin - I've been to his house a couple of times through my work , and he's always been really nice . We have a similiar taste in music , and I've met him since at some gigs and he always takes time to say hello.

Billy Boyd- He lives quite near me , so we've met a few times. Once I was wearing a Kasabian T shirt , and he commented that he'd seen them recently and we ended up chatting for ages about music .

I met Jack Charlton when I was 2 or 3. I can't remember it, but my mum said he was very nice and he sat me on his knee for a photo.

Not me personally, but my daughter waitress-ed Mrs Beckham and two of her kids the other day, she's no fan, but her report was:
"She's skinny, but no as much as expected"
"She tipped her 20 and she only bought two drinks"
"Her boys were both really cute and well behaved"

So a real world thumbs for VB!

Ive met Ben Shepherd who was lovely and chatty (although a tad chubbier in real life than I expected- sorry ben) pretty sure he was a little tiddly though.

I also met Rhydian (from the x factor..) who reeked of desperation and wanted to be recognsed throughout the night. being stubbon, I pretended that I had absolutley no idea who he was much to his dissapointment.

Im not one of those people who collect autographs and such like

The Saturdays were amazing! They are all so lovely & came over & spoke to my friend & I for about 10 minutes, took photo's aswell - just lovely girls, seriously, could not ask for nicer girls (:

Diana Vickers think she is something - nasty piece of work. Took a picture with 1 person & then said "Oh, really sorry got to go" in the most fake way, EVER.

My sister and SiL have met the boys, Sister when they came into her shop with Posh's mum and bodyguard, SiL when they were in a book shop with Becks, both said how lovely, polite and well behaved all three boys were.

Dermot O' Leary, Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh are lovely.

Holly Willougby is a miserable, stuck up, rude cow.

June Brown is lovely.

Rowan Atkinson is a bastard (I still love him though).

Chris Eubank was awesome. He loved that I recognised him and he heard me say his name...and he approached me to take a picture. Max Clifford was there too and he was also very nice.

Graham Norton was adorable the first time I met him and very nice, but the second time he was quite rude but was in a rush...

Harry Connick Jnr was amazing. Chatting to him for ages...well to be honest, I didn't realise it was him until somebody else said so. I thought it was a man working on production.

Cameron MacIntosh and David Baddiel were quite nice, as was Mickey Graham from Boyzone.

Alan Rickman was quite nice when I bumped into him in Waterstones but got the feeling he was angry at being recognised.

I think its harsh to judge people off just one meeting, especially if they are in the public eye and you dont know them. Everyone has off days and doesnt always feel like posing for a camera when they are "off duty".

Exactly. I don't take it to heart at all. I've met Rowan Atkinson twice and both times he was rude, BUT, I think he is absolutely hilarious and he is one of my all-time favourite actors and nothing will ever change that. He's bloody good at what he does.

I've only met 2 celebs - largely on account that I really wanted to meet them so made sure I was in the right place at the right time !
Nowhere need the celeb stardon of those that have been mentioned but I love them anyway - it was Sam and Mark and they are just the nicest, friendliest guys on the planet !
seriously could not have been nicer !!

Jimmy Summerville a HORRIBLE object.
I spoke to Jimmy Somerville about 10 or so years ago, when I worked for a mobile phone network. He had lost his phone and he was at the airport waiting on a flight. He was charming, despite the situation and had a surprisingly deep voice.

Spoke to Davina McCall too - she was very nice.

John Leslie on the other hand.......

I haven't seen anyone with a bad word to say for the Beckham kids. They sound really well brought up.

Jason Orange- an absolute delight. Very softly spoken and polite. Very talkative as well. Super nice guy.

There's a lyric in the Spitting Image parody "I've never met a nice South Africian" where amongst all of the improbable and impossible things that the narrator has seen, heard and witnessed - 'flying pigs in convincing wigs' 'a decent song by Wings' 'a guy who got a job straight after leaving school' etc. he claims to have had lunch with Rowan Atkinson when he paid and wasn't late - so I think that someone involved with Spitting Image probably John Lloyd had a lot of bad experiences with Rowan in that regard. Sometimes there's a lot to be said for 'trust the art not the artist' and I should know my favourite artist removed his own head with a shotgun.

You know it's funny but I heard that aswell that Rowan Atkinson isn't that friendly and nice to get along with.

he doesn't respond to fanmail either, when you write to his agent, they just send you a pre-printed Mr.Bean photo, nothing from him personally.

I've heard that too, Rowans not that nice.

My dad and stepmum met Rowan Atkinson, and said he came across as painfully shy, but was pleasant enough and posed for a picture with my stepmum.

I haven't read all the way through the thread so sorry if I repeat anything anybody else said.

The vilest, most rude celeb I ever met was Marcus Hannehman (sp?) - the Wolves goalie. He moaned about absolutely everything. Roy Keane was really surly too - he refused to sign for his room service meal and I had to inform him that if he wouldn't sign I'd end up having to pay for it.

Arsene Wenger, Thierry Henry, Patrick Viera, Pascal Cygan and Robert Pires were all really polite and friendly.

Wet Wet Wet were rude, Take That were immensely friendly. Lulu only eats soup made with mineral water! I took a barrel-load of booze up to Michael Barrymore's suite when he fell off the wagon just before the announcement that he was gay. Ice T and Bobby Davro were in the hotel at the same time as him so we were inundated with celebs!

Ben Elton was a star and asked for 2 Yorkie puds with his roast pork dinner.

Jamie Harper (footballer) was delightful, as was Alan Pardew. Darren 'Big Dave' Moore is a fantastic guy - really chatty and funny. John Salako ate his body weight in ice cream, John O'Shea naughtily had a chicken pesto sandwich from room service against the physio's orders.

Richard Wilson had me in stitches, Michael Elphick stood chatting to me for ages as I was at the opposite end of the room to the bar and he didn't want to be tempted!

Lenny Henry and Dawn French were an odd couple to meet together - the height difference was immense!

I dropped new potatoes into Cathy Staff (Nora Batty's) lap the first night I ever worked in a silver service restaurant.

The most amazing person I ever met was Princess Diana. She was stunning.

Lady Gaga is very nice, met her once before the MB and she's very polite & sweet.

Alesha Dixon is nice too, a little hard to understand (at times) but she's really funny and her laugh is amazing.

Martin Clunes - I've met him twice. Once in Cornwall when they were filming "Doc Martin" and once in the airport in Dubai when he was there to film that documentary about horses.

Both times he was really lovely and down to earth.

Michael Buerk was lovely too. He was posing for photos and signing autographs and ignoring his production team, who were telling him to move along.
Yes, I met Michael Buerk back in 2002 on the Cunard ship Caronia. He was really nice and posed for a photo with me:
