Yeah when I was younger (about 7) I won a competition in school and met Ian Rush.

I’ve never been a football fan so had no idea who he was, despite my Dad/Grandad like fawning over him.

Jo Brand came into my shop when I worked in a shop with her daughter and I served her, thought she looked familiar but just thought she was a regular, I noticed everyone starting at me whilst I was serving here and afterwards everyone was like THATS JO BRAND and I was like ohhhh

I was 12 and in London with my family staying in a Hotel.

This guy started chatting to us and I thought I recognised him.
It only dawned on myself and one of my Brothers, after he set off.
That he was Neil Hannon of Divine Comedy.

Once I realised I was so disappointed not to have realised before, as I love their recordings.

I met Nicky Pope in a club at New Cross having absolutely no idea that he was a Charlton player at the time. It didn’t really help that my friend (who is dyslexic) was saying ”LOOK THERE’S NICKY POP!!” instead of Pope

Celebrity is a condition of fame and broad public recognition of an individual or group as a result of the attention given to them by mass media. A person may attain a celebrity status from having great wealth, their participation in sports or the entertainment industry, their position as a political figure, or even from their connection to another celebrity.

Thanks

Audley Harrison in a WH Smith in Bluewater, i wanna say 2000. I didn't know who he was, but i knew he was 'someone' just because of the crowd around him, and he was physically HUGE.

Celebrity literally is a “celebrated personality”, footballers come under that I reckon.

Especially Rashford, even if just for his work off the pitch lately.

Celebs are people that make you go ooooo in the street, if you see them.

Default Have you ever met a celebrity but didn't know who they were at the time?

I think I’ve mentioned on here before, I chatted to the bloke from “Outlander” whilst waiting an outlandish ( ) amount of time to be served at a bar in Glasgow when I was on stag night. Had no clue who he was until I went back to the table and everyone was like “was that the fella from outlander??” And I had to google it, and it indeed was the fella from outlander.
