I 've just come back from holiday in Turkey & 2 (sort of) semi famous people were staying at the same place for the same week.

I got beaten in the table tennis final by Burnley + Welsh Int'l Brian Stock ...( although he did admit he has his own table tennis table in his triple garage at home) + also shared a few drinks with ex Deep Purple lead singer Joe Lynn Turner ( i'll be honest i'd never heard of him but his girlfriend , around 40 years younger than him , was totally drop dead gorgeous )

Now i realise in this game i have started with the equivalent of an old Mini Metro in Top Trumps Supercars .... but hopefully this will encourage all Shrimperzoners to trump the celebrity ( shouldnt be too difficult !!!) .... whether its recent or old.

Had beers with Matty Prior out in Sydney after the last Ashes Win, he has a couple of close pals in the Barmy Army.

Also had chats down the years with Paul Collingwood (Cape Town, last March), Sir Stan Collymore (Euro 2004), Darren Gough (V Festival when he was an Essex player).

Saw Richard Ayoade in London once and he looked pretty shocked to be recognised.

A few months ago when I got the train up to Liverpool, saw John Barnes getting on as I was getting off but didn't really have enough time to ask for a photo.

Never heard of him. So on that basis Lord Football probably has him on his Deadpool list.

Billericay Town held an ex - player vs Celebrity match to show off their brand new floodlights at New Lodge. Must have been donkeys years ago coz it was at that time when The Goodies were to me the best thing in the world. Bill Oddie was playing and at the final whistle i sprinted onto the pitch with the pure intention of getting my favourite Goodies' autograph. But in my haste i actually crashed into Elton John ( complete with comedy specs ) who was also playing and we both fell to the floor in a heep. He called me a F****** W***** which i thought was quite shocking to a 10 year old, but i was helped to my feet by a smiling Kenny Lynch.
Happy ending though , i did get Bill Oddie's signature :smiles:

I saw and heard Simon Cowell drop his guts rather loudly once and boy did it smell. That was a celebrity top trump.

I am friends with Graham Gooch, one of the more successful Essex and English cricketers.
