I used to work in an IT Call Centre and got to speak to some pretty famous people.

Ones that I can remember are Paul Daniels and his wife (they were always calling, as they were as thick as ****), Terry Wogan, American Country singer Willie Nelson (actually it was his PA that phoned, but I had to confirm the account with Mr. Nelson before I could go any further - he was really nice), Peter Kay - not sure if it was THE Peter Kay, but it sounded like him and he had a Bolton address.

There was more but I can't remember who they were.

Who else has spoken to anyone famous?

The most famous person i have spoken to is Adam Clayton from U2, i fell down some stairs and landed on top of him in a nightclub.

I twisted my ankle, and i have to say he was very nice to me, was very concerned and kept offering me a lift home, which i refused.

Met and spoke to most of the england team after the Holland match at Euro96 - had a nice invite to the players bar after the game from Terry Venables dad, Fred, after serving him as a waiter for the other group games. Paul Gascoigne and his wife at the time Cheryl and Jamie Redknapp and his girlfriend at the time, now wife Louise were there.

Johnny Vegas used to lodge at my mates Mum and we used to go and support him on his early days of open mike stand up!! They often turned into messy drinking sessions!!

I did a bit of work at the home of opera singer Lesley Garrett a few years ago, she was pleasant if a bit of a diva!!

I met most of the Old Firm players from the early to mid 90's as I had a part time job as a hospital porter while a student.

Who was it that had wee Pancho from Dirty Sanchez help them build a shed or patio or summit like that?

I thought that was cool as fook. :)
