I was best man for my old mate Matt's wedding earlier this year and I didn't want to give a traditional, boring best man's speech...

I remembered that Matt was crazy about gravy as a kid, so I approached Bisto Customer Services asking if they could arrange for someone to have their photo taken holding a photo of Matt and his fiancée. A day later I got an email back saying they'd love to help out. This got me thinking, if companies were willing, where would it end? Playing on nostalgia I set about emailing the agents of famous personalities from our childhood.

Against all odds I received photos back from Jim Bowen, Alexandra Paul, Judy Blume, Michael Palin, Quincy Jones, Ernie Hudson, and Cannon and Ball to name but a few. Thank you Hotmail!
