Chris Martin agreed. Wayne Rooney declined. Joan Collins
didn't bother to reply.When Jules Segal makes a bet with his mate over a
few pints in his local his main aim is to prove that celebrities aren't the
self-obsessed egocentrics that we all believe them to be. His secondary one
is to avoid the unpleasant list of forfeits he will have to endure should
he fail in his quest.

pre-agreed list as possible - while avoiding being thrown into prison on
grounds of stalking. Easy, right? But did Jules succeed in his mission? Or

pad as punishment for his failure?
Join our star-struck author as he travels the length and breadth of the
country in search of celebrities and their hands...
