    I was once on a flight to Orlando and England goalkeeper Gordon Banks was on the same flight.

    This year on a trip to Las Vegas, 'TV funny-man' Billy Pearce was on both the outbound and return flights.

    Can anyone top that?

    My friend was once on a flight from Heathrow to Manchester and was sat next to Morrissey. She was too afraid to speak to him.

    My friends are cabin crew so they get quite a few. Apparently Keith from The Prodigy was absolutely lovely, as was George Michael.

    I saw Richard Whitely at LBA once... he was a right grumpy sod.

    Three of Take That on a plane to Vegas just after they'd announced their reunion. They were then stood just in front of us in the immigration queue but we nipped in to get a cab before them.

    A mate of my was sat next to Kool from Kool & The Gang. Each of the band's carry on bag had the word Gang on them. Ace.

    Not plane related but I saw the B52s in LA last week and they were staying in our hotel so I got my photo taken with Fred & Cindy. :)

    Potential winner...in my opinion.

    Apparently a bit of a sex pest, too. Wandering hands.

    Someone on LMF once posted about being stood in a queue in TK Maxx next to Christa Ackroyd and she was a complete cow.

    She once let me into the BBC building one of the times I was on Introducing. She was polite, but again, bright orange.

    I read that there was much rejoicing when she left Look North.

    Also I believe there was once a letter in Viz from a reader claiming to have heard her do a massive guff in a supermarket carpark.

    I once got on a plane in the states and I had to walk past Stevie Wonder in 1st class. I was really shocked and tried to keep my cool and not stare. By the time I sat down I realised he probably wouldn't have noticed if I was staring...

    I saw Paxman in the departure lounge Wetherspoons at East Midlands airport and was far too afraid to even speak to him.

    That's reminds that that I once saw Al Snow in the departures area at Manchester Airport. He was working with WWE at the time so there were probably a few other wrestlers with him but I didn't spot any I recognised.
