BBC Teens - Celebrity

Celebrities on being famous:

"If someone recognises me in the street I get very edgy and start to sweat." Ricky Jervais

"I've always loved singing, I've always loved dancing and this is the one thing that I could do to make people watch me and pay attention to me." Victoria Beckham

"I still feel the only noticeable thing about being famous is that people come a long way down the carriage to sit next to you on trains." Griff Rhys Jones

tiny When was the last time you passed a celeb in the street? It could have been an A-list Hollywood star over here on a film shoot, or an Z-list extra from Hollyoaks stocking up at ASDA.

Scott Mills and Chris Moyles, spotted by fans

Or have you seen any pop stars stopped at a motorway service station, or any famous footballers down the local chippy?

And if you've got any celebrity goss, let us have it (as long as it won't get anyone into too much trouble!)

Post your celebrity spots from around the South in the form below.

If you were brave/sad enough to get your picture taken with the celeb, e-mail or picture message your snap to

We'll even give your celeb-spot a star rating out of 10 on our celebometer.
