Not sure he counts as a celeb as such, but Harry Kewell was on the BA 116 in CW on 29/12.

Saw Eddie Jordan of F1 fame in the T3 First lounge on New Years day evening. Later saw him boarding the BA43 to Cape Town, I didn't however see him in the F cabin, perhaps he was upstairs :D

Doesn't he work for the BBC Top Gear? I doubt they would pay for him to fly First = )

Well I guess anything is possible with the BBC. He was travelling alone.

Speaking with some South African friends apparently he is out here quite often for various reasons, and has a house somewhere in Cape Town

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag on BA 269 1/1 upper deck, 2nd CW cabin.

Amazing…a GCH? Most of the BBC news presenters I work with barely have Bronze level cards…if that…!

No idea - I guess he (or one/some of his party) must have been!

"He" does!! Just wasn't sure how that definition would go down on here....seemed a nice chap though.

Obviously doesn't spend much time on here though as he was in the 'dormitory' with his family-no mini-cabin for him.

When I was flying between LHR and IAD every few months I'd often see BBC and ITV correspondents in the lounge or in CW. I don't recall seeing any in F but that could be just not noticing it.

I realise this is going to start an epic war, but Casey Neistat on CPT-LHR in his latest video:

Isn't his wife a celeb in her own right? Ex soap actress from memory (although I guess he could have changed wives, since I last peeked at the Daily Mail ;) )
