Was cut up by Bruce Forsyth on the A30 near Sunningdale a few years ago in his Canary Yellow Roller , and inadvertently followed Chris Evans home in one the "magnificent seven", also saw Dale Winton driving through Regents Park in an XK8 a few years ago...

Hugh Grant (many times) in his Vanquish

Eric Clapton in his F40

Andrew Ridgely (Wham) in his Saab 9-5

Louis Theroux in his rather modest Clio!

Mostly in Rock/Polzeath in Cornwall - bit of a sleb hangout.

Did not know he had a Vanquish. I remember reading an article he wrote when "About a Boy" came out, he apparently had very little interest in cars, and the kid playing the boy spent the whole time they were making the film badgering him into buying something nice!

I can't believe nobody's jumped all over the "Jason Plato in his 911 turbo badly parked" yet...

I once got hit by Rowan Atkinson in his Delta Integrale in Windsor High Street. This was in around '87/'88. I stepped out into the road without looking, he slammed the brakes on and gently tapped me on the legs with his grille. He wound the window down and released a string of four letter invective at me which I thoroughly deserved. Sorry, Rowan, if you read this website.

The next week, I was walking in Peascod Street (also in Windsor, before pedestrianisation), when a Big Jag XJ saloon pulled up at the kerb. Door opened and out stepped Billy Connolly. He hadn't noticed me and walked straight in to me. Apologised profusely.

A couple of years ago, I spotted Paul Daniels driving a Transit van through Sonning - at the moment I spotted him I was listening to an interview with David Blaine on the radio and driving past the gates of Yuri Geller's house. That's magic, I thought.

Then, a few weeks later, I saw Debbie Magee driving her old W124 Merc coupe (gold, naturally) through Caversham Park Village.

Does he still have his Ferrari, IIRC he had the plate MAG1C on it...

I saw Tony Robinson in a LR Disco on the M5 Southbound doing that 'cutting in at the last minute' type of thing before some roadworks. As much as I love him as Bladrick, I did think wkER!!
