    LMAO that is pretty boring!

    Haven't really had any boring ones to be fair, I guess you could say Ed Leigh, but bless him he took time in the middle of commentating on Freestyle Motocross to say a quick hello to us as we stood next to him - so exciting for us though!

    Or maybe the time my aunt got Kevin McCloud to ring me, but that was hilarious, only boring as I wasn't there to actually meet him!

    I was in Lidl car park about to take back my empty trolley when Melania Trump popped up offering me a pound for the trolley. Saved me taking it back I guess.

    No idea what i'd call boring but I did accidently last year chat to Ray Park aka Darth Maul from Star Wars episode 1 when I was queueing for a photo for someone else, I assumed he was someones dad waiting for their kid to have their photo taken with someone until someone tapped me on the back and said "don't you realise thats Ray Park"

    I served Bucks Fizz coffee when I worked at Butlins in the early 90's.

    I once served Trudie Goodwin (from The Bill, and Emmerdale) when she bought Christmas decorations at Woolworths.

    The posh blonde woman from Antiques Roadshow used to walk past my window at work. One time I waved at her and she waved back!

    I was standing at a bus stop in St. Albans once when Lemmy from Motorhead stopped to ask me where the nearest decent pub was.

    I'm not going to name names, but when I was serving in the Falklands in the mid 1990s part of my job was to organise the visiting show biz characters who came to entertain the troops.

    One well know comic was a hoot on stage - but crippled by shyness off stage. Not so much boring, but extremely hard work!

    The Duke of Edinburgh waved to me as I was putting out my dustbin.

    No reliance should be placed on the above! Absolutely none, do you hear?
