Who is the most famous person you’ve ever stood in the same pleb queue with?

E.g. Cherie Lunghi in a queue for the Midland Bank cash desk, West Ken, 1989.

SinnerBoy - 29 Jun 2019 12:12:40 (#9 of 140)

Probably Frank Bruno. Mind you, he came up here to visit a friend and had a bit of knockabout sparring with us, so that probably doesn't count as queuing.

I've stood in the urinals next to Bernard Manning. He said if your friends ask you if you know Bernard Manning tell them you've had a piss with him.

pranzingfrogg - 29 Jun 2019 12:16:07 (#11 of 140)

Sue Pollard, at Peterborough station exit barrier.

Jacob_Richter - 29 Jun 2019 12:20:20 (#12 of 140)

Nick Cave - in the gents in the pub next to The Venue.

Pete Wylie - in the gents in some club in Liverpool.

The guy who played Curly in Corrie - at the bar and in the gents at various pubs in S.Manchester.

Jason Watkins - bakery in Orford.

Just a month ago - Phil Jupitus on the ferry to Orkney and again at the Italian Chapel.

The Italian rugby team, baggage reclaim, Edinburgh airport. Presumably they were all wearing made to measure Italian suits, but they made them look like cheap off-the-peg.

Ulrikka Jonsson, Apple Shop, Regent St.

SinnerBoy - 29 Jun 2019 12:24:28 (#14 of 140)

I was asked for directions, at last year's Tall Ships, by Sinitta. I bragged about it here, at the time.

hailesaladdie - 29 Jun 2019 12:32:14 (#15 of 140)

I had a slash beside Jarvis Cocker, after some queueing.

hailesaladdie - 29 Jun 2019 12:33:53 (#16 of 140)

Eh, the queueing was for the bogs, not specifically to have a pish next to Jarvis.

dreams99 - 29 Jun 2019 12:34:21 (#17 of 140)

Christie Hynde, in a video rental shop in Maida vale.

hailesaladdie - 29 Jun 2019 12:34:55 (#18 of 140)

Did you approach her, or did she stand by you?

indlovubill - 29 Jun 2019 12:38:28 (#19 of 140)

Paul Ince in an Indian restaurant in Swiss Cottage.

popstar7 - 29 Jun 2019 12:43:01 (#20 of 140)

Hugh Grant. Waiting to get served at the Electric Cinema bar. Notting Hill (where else?), 2010.

He already had a drink so I suppose it wasn't a queue exactly.
