Leslie Phillips, 97

Ah the memories. Many (many) years ago my mate and I pulled into a petrol station in West Hampstead to fill up. Mate got out and was at the pump when a sports car pulled up at the other side of the pump, and out got Leslie Phillips.  I was trying to do my 'I'm looking at him but trying not to let him notice' thing when he came over to the car and said something along the lines of " I say chaps, just picked up this car and I can't find the petrol cap, I don't suppose one of you would know where it is?"  Out we got and after a while my mate found it (behind the rear number plate), cue lots of thanks in true Carry On/ farce mode, and off we went. A very nice chap.
