Last month Dannii Minogue asked for your best celebrity encounters from the 90s, and boy did you deliver!
1. Janet Jackson
Owen was lucky enough to meet Janet Jackson in 1997, when she was here in Melbourne to promote her new album, The Velvet Rope. He explains how he was invited in to her dressing room at Hey Hey It’s Saturday:
2. East 17
Sometimes celebrity encounters happen in the strangest of places, and that was definitely the case for East 17 fan Angie. She met the band at a servo!
3. Kylie Minogue
Of course Dannii couldn’t do a celebrity encounters podcast without including your stories of meeting her and Kylie over the years. Natasha called in with an amazing story of when Kylie tried to get her attention at a cafe:

5. Geri Halliwell
In 1999, Mark was lucky enough to be flown to London to meet Geri Halliwell at Top of The Pops! His amazing story features Enrique Iglesias, a fax machine (how very 90s!) and the Sussan jingle…
