Ok! here we go, I'll start

I live in London so I've seen quite a few

My favourite is when I was on the kings road I was in a shop buying trainers and there was Gene Wilder trying on some shoes. great!! I'm a big fan, he looks exactly the same in real life, crazy hair!

Quite a few over the past few years but during the last couple of weeks Brian Ferry and his girlfriend out shopping shopping and Bob Geldof a few times (he always sits outside at this one particular cafe next door to a Harley-Davidson shop reading the paper and doing the crossword, and for some reason whenever I've seen him he's been in a navy pinstripe suit... very "rough" looking but attractive man nonetheless) :D

Blechky!!! Ted Kennedy, we were dining, he was being escorted to 'his table' at a restaurant in D.C. with his gf/wife? and another couple, fattest cheeks I ever seen, then from behind, you could still see his cheeks(on his face I mean) :eek: :p he was loud and his cheeks got redder :p

lmao Lou Dobbs in a very swanky Florida resort book store, he was buying a book before he was to speak, I think he was keynote speaker, was there just slumming around while hubby atteneded a conference. :p He was a great speaker btw :cool:

Seen many famous people when I used to work on Regent Street. a lot of mega rock stars like Clapton, Bowie, Elton John etc.
Funniest star spotting was about a year ago around High Street Ken one evening. Saw Brian May and his missus Anita Dobson having dinner al fresco in some fancy restuarant but they were having a huge barney :eek: :eek: :p
