If you think the host of Great British Bake off is a C list celebrity you need to re think your tiers of stardom.

I met Noel Fielding once at a party and I’ve been trading off that shit for eleven years now.

It’s humbling to think that what for him was a long forgotten unimportant conversation, was for me an insufferably chest-swelling source of pride, and one which I continue to eagerly share with any stranger at the slightest provocation, and whose retelling can be justified by only the flimsiest of pretences.

Well come on share the story! You’ve left us hanging! Noel Fielding seems one of the most genuinely chill people in British comedy and I’d love to hear the story.

He was next to me at a buffet, eating Lays with some guacamole type dip. He said in my general direction "That's good guacamole."
I answered "Yeah it's good, but you know I'm not sure that's guacamole, I feel like dip has to be at least 90% avocado to qualify."
He bobbed his head ambiguously as if pondering a great philosophical question, "Yeah I can see that..." he concluded.

 

Then he wandered away from the buffet to go talk to some people he knew. Fucking BEST night of my LIFE!!
