Heston Blumenthal in the Brisbane Qantas Business Lounge on Monday.

VERY nice guy. Chatting with fans and the admiring chefs.

Andy Lee ( from Hamish and Andy on TV) sat opposite me in the Qantas Lounge yesterday afternoon. He was flying to Melbourne. A couple of people came up to him to have photos taken with him, so I moved !!!

My wife saw Guy Sebastian and family in the SYD VA lounge Saturday morning. She was going to OOL however she assumes they where going to ADL. This is the second time she has seen him at the airport. The last time she managed to get his autograph which now has pride and place in our study with Bert Newton and Greg Chappell.... she is a bit of a stalker.

I boarded just behind Albo and they exchanged a very friendly greeting when they saw each other. I went back to Y from there and would too have loved to see how the rest of the flight panned out!

A good mate of mine was sat next to the two of them at Otto in Sydney on the weekend... he said he didn't know whether to be excited, or drop and give them 20 push-ups

Or cancel the wonderful carb loaded pasta and desert they'd just ordered. (I'm assuming Otto is a restaurant?)

Joel Edgerton on board QF11 on Sep 8, not sure about class of travel. He took longer at immigration than us, however the guys at quarantine/ customs also recognised him as "the guy from The Great Gatsby".
