I have always considered this to be the most Z-list of non celebrity stories. Easily topping my backstage pass and access all areas card for Haircut 100. Or the time Lionel Blair needed to borrow a pound in Roehampton Asda.

"Our patio furniture used to belong to Valerie Singelton."
"So you went round her house to buy them?"
"No..They were already here."
"So..how did you know they were Val's?"
"Well..the bloke we bought the house from said he bought them from her from a news-agent's advert.."
"But you have no actual proof?"
"Erm..no..but it is a good story."
"Hmmm....No. Not really."
But it is the current Z-list, non celeb non-event champion anecdote.
If you have a worse, more pointless, less famous, utterly banal sleb story, then the crown might be yours.
Into the comments please.
