I haven't met many, and embarressingly they're either from Waterloo Road or SCD professionals but they've all been lovely

Eva Pope
Neil Morrissey
Tom Chambers

Erin Boag
James Jordan
Vincent Simone

They were all really nice and happy sign autographs/have pictures ect.

I also touched Michael Buble at one of his concerts but that doesn't really count. My Mum's best friend met him though and she said he was lovely to the fans.

Lucky you - dare I ask where?

Used to work in a v posh London boutique and met quite a few slebs.

Dustin Hoffman is an absolute darling, chats to everyone and always stops for anyone wanting a photo, lovely man!

Nigel havers and his wife are the most stuck up rude people I've ever had the misfortune to encounter.

Elle macphearson, Claudia schiffer, and Sophie dahl came in often and were more stunning than any photo could show and very sweet too.

Kate moss looked very ordinary but didn't really talk to her.

Sir Richard attenbrough was a regular, was delightful and used to give the colleague that always helped him a nice bottle of wine for Xmas.

Anne Robinson was....shhhhh.... A very sweet lady who seemed to go out of her way to be nice.

I used to work in a disability advice centre, and every Christmas, we'd arrange a party for disabled children. One year, we invited Linda Robson to appear (she was doing panto at our local theatre)

She was so lovely with the children, and admitted that meeting them, made her realise how lucky she was to have healthy children of her own.

An absolute star - very normal, no airs and graces at all.

I met Linda Robson when I was on holiday in Cyprus, about 6 years ago.

I was in McDonald's and she came in with her family. Anyways, I waited until she came out for her autograph. She stopped and chatted to me and my mate for about 5 minutes, like we were old friends or something - asking if we were having a nice time etc. She saw I was holding my camera, and even asked if we wanted a photo.

She is indeed a lovely lady, down-to-earth, genuine and nice.

My mum was seated behind Robbie Keane at a concert : said he was very friendly and even called her "princess".

She once met the late John Thaw as well.She says he was an absolute gentleman and very charming and talkative.

Aw, I'd like to meet her. She sounds like someone you could have a fantastic natter over the garden fence with!

I met Jaime Winstone, Jason Flemyng, Will Poulter, and Dexter Fletcher a few weeks ago. All were lovely. I found Will Poulter to be particularly lovely, so I'm very chuffed that he's doing so well.

I once met Justin Timberlake when I was very young during his NSYNC days, he gave me a kiss on the cheek Still one of my fav. stories, haha.

I met Adam Lambert in Koln, and he was absolutely the sweetest, charming guy. Swoon.

I've met the chef James Martin five times and he is absolutely LOVELY! Exactly like he comes across on TV - very down to earth and friendly and absolutely hilarious!

Pete and Noel?! You're so lucky! Pete's always treasured his fans though, right since the very beginning. And the Noel story just sounds funny
Yes, Pete and Noel in the same night. I just about screamed all the way home. I managed to meet the whole of the Boosh lot after one of their live shows once. Luckily I got a free box of crayons with my programme so I had something they could sign it with, when we met Noel the first time we had to resort to eye-liner. To be honest it was a bit mental, like they were a (VERY peculiar looking) boy band or something!

Speaking of boy bands, I have also just been told that someone I know was propositioned by Harry from One Direction AND TURNED HIM DOWN with the words "I could be your mother". She's like 19, so the mother thing is a bit of an overstatement but good on her as she has a boyfriend, not sure I could show such self restraint. However even juicier is that this girl's sister spent the whole night getting off with Louis F.1.D even though he has a girlfriend (apparently, this may need confirmation from a bigger fan than I). The girls' mum phoned the next day and overheard him singing Grenade by Bruno Mars in the shower. She swears she slept on the floor (of their hotel room), however somehow I doubt it's only Matt who'll be taking a great deal of pleasure in "how much p***y" he's getting at the moment... They must be loving it.

A girl I know was at an airport in America with her mom - they had managed to get bumped up to first class (business class, or whatever it's called). Anyway, the girl wandered off to have a shop, and when she came back, her mom had just finished chatting with a young man in the first class departure lounge. The mom had no idea who the man was, but her daughter did - it was Justin Timberlake!! Apparently he was very lovely, friendly and a bit shy.

one of my work colleagues was in a pub in darlington when Frank Carson came in from doing a show across the road at the theatre , apparently the pub was full and he elbowed his way to the front of the bar saying do you know who i am would you move surely you know who I am and all the sort of stuff , then when he got to the bar he turned round and said right what's everybody drinking then and bought everyone in the pubs drinks all night , what a star

Not really celebrities as such but I met both Stewart Lee & Richard Herring last year

Both were absolutely lovely and had no problem standing and chatting with fans after the gigs

Billy Connolly is a twirp. He seriously needs to get himself a better 'tude and remember who put him where he is today.

Jensen Ackles is such a lovely guy and SO much better looking in real life.

Paul Walker is a bit of a creep.

Jessica Alba is lovely. Such a nice woman.

Eminem is a really nice guy also, nothing like you would expect him to be.

Murray Walker - Rude and unpleasant
Stirling Moss - A gent
Lewis Hamilton - Surprisingly friendly
Jenson Button - Genuinely nice guy
Easy to see where you've been!

Lewis is pretty shy and quiet from what I've seen

Jenson is perfectly nice, Stirling Moss is just...immense!

Will disagree about Murray Walker though, really lovely gentleman...albeit rather old now...but he means no harm...just talk a little louder!

I met that band the drums twice (the singer only once). All three of them are really polite but shy and awkwardly adorable.
The singer is beyond kind, he missed me and two girls who wanted his autograph and a picture when he did the rounds and just as he was heading back into the venue we groaned in dissapointment and he dashed back out to shake our hands and get the autographs and pictures really quickly (security were having a nightmare with them staying out so long to meet fans).

Alison Goldfrapp is quite sweet but extremely shy.

Taylor momsen was nice to us after a show we saw her band play but my friend met her back at the v festival and she was really snotty and smarmy towards her so I think she was fake sugar sweet to us at her gig, you get some like that.

Lady Gaga is adorable if you meet her, two of my friends took the commitment to stalk outside her hotel and she invited all 20 of this group in to some staircase area of the hotel and gave time to them all

I've heard the same praise for the Scissor Sisters from friends but the closest I got to them was groping Jake Shears during a crowd dive.

A friend saw Nick Cave go right past him in a french airport once. It broke his heart to see one of his rock idols in flares & converse with his two kids in tow. He was dressed so normal compared to his attire and persona when he performs and what not (lovely person apparently though).

Wow, I didn't know they were performing together again? I've met Lee before at the Jerry Springer Opera when it first came out.

I'm not surprised by that at all. He comes across terribly.

Love The Drums! I met Kele and Matt from Bloc Party once as well, they were really lovely. I've always found bands meeting fans after gigs are usually pretty nice, that kind of band anyway.

Just the way he looks at you really. Not surprising when his gf is years younger... Just got the "creep" vibe from him. But in the flesh he's SO good looking. Beautiful body too!

John Leslie did a guest spot on a youth theatre charity show I was in many years ago. He leered at all of us (mostly underage) teenage girls and told blue material unsuitable for a family show. I thought he was a sleezy creep.
I've read a few stories on here about what he got up to on holidays when he was in Blue Peter so that's not surprising.

Gaby roslin is not just the nastiest celebrity I've ever met, but one of the nastiest people. Interviewed her for my old student radio...had a few problems with the Mic and she said 'cant You just hurry the f**k up'.

Barbs winsdor, as has been mentioned, horrid.

Justin bieber, nasty little ****.

Alex Ferguson, lovely man.

Kylie, really nice lady

Simon cowell was also very nice.

In zlist category, Preston was a gem, Dane bowers a Dick.
