Forget the red carpet, it seems like London's tube network is the place for sleb spotting this week. Yesterday, Harry Potter star Emma Watson was sneaking around on the Underground hiding feminist books, and today a whole host of celebrities are taking over the tube announcements.

Jessica Ennis-Hill, Jennifer Saunders, Moira Stuart, Michael Palin, Barbara Windsor, Stephen Fry and Brian Blessed will be doing the tube announcements all day long as part of TfL's partnership with the Royal British Legion for London Poppy Day. So if you thought you heard the soothing tones of Stephen Fry on the Central line this morning, don't panic, you haven't totally lost the plot.
