Londoners reveal their best celebrity encounters

James Manning

We asked you to reveal your best celebrity encounter – from Arnold Schwarzenegger on a Boris bike to Alan Carr on a night bus, you didn’t disappoint.

'I literally bumped into Ian McKellen at the tube barriers at Canary Wharf - he had tapped his Oyster card and got the "seek assistance" message.'

'I took a night bus from Piccadilly with Alan Carr. He invited us to a party in Notting Hill. We declined. Still kicking myself about that one!'

'I threw prawns into Kirsten Dunst's mouth at the instigation of a chef at Benihana.'

'Tim Minchin drank some of my friend's birthday dirty pint.'

'Eddie Redmayne coughed all over me outside Southwark station.'

'I once tried to sell Derren Brown a karaoke machine.'

'Turning up at the wrong place for an interview isn't so bad when it means you get to meet every member of One Direction.'

'I did a pub quiz with Matt Lucas and he accidentally took my wallet.'

'I saw Arnold Schwarzenegger riding a Boris bike around Hyde Park Corner.'

Now tell us: what’s your biggest guilty pleasure?
