Entertainment Celebrity cameos Victoria Beckham on Ugly Betty, Tom Cruise on Tropic Thunder and Britney Spears on How I Met Your Mother... By Charlotte Duck 24 Mar 2015 Our favourite moments when the stars pop up from out of the blue... Ed Sheeran in Home and Away During a trip to Australia, Ed Sheeran visited the Palm Beach and Eveleigh sets of Home and Away to film scenes for an upcoming episode. Yes, Ed Sheeran is starring in the much-loved soap – and it’s rumoured that he filmed scenes with good ol’ Marilyn (played by Emily Symons). It’s believed that the world-renowned singer-songwriter will play himself, but storyline details about what (or who!) brings Ed to Summer Bay are being kept under wraps. We can't wait for this one. Kim Kardashian in 2 Broke Girls The reality TV star-turned-fashionista has made a guest appearance in hit US TV show 2 Broke Girls as a customer to their cupcake shop. In a still released by the show - and in typical Kim style - Kardashian can be seen looking chic, sleek and sharp in an all-white outfit with her hair dark hair left loose and lovely over her shoulders. www.unc-mps.com.ua www.maxformer.com Dianna Agron in Sam Smith's music video Sam Smith has unveiled the music video for his new single, I'm Not The Only One and it features Glee actress Dianna Agron. The blonde beauty plays a wife who is being cheated on by her husband, and her performance really brings Sam's heart wrenching pop-ballad to life. Way to go, Dianna! David Beckham in Only Fools & Horses David Beckham is heading to Peckham. The footballer is set to appear alongside Del Boy and Rodney in a Sports Relief Special of the show, the first episode of the comedy in 10 years. No news yet on whether Becks will get up to some wheeling and dealing but, by the looks of things, he is set to enjoy a good cuppa in the local greasy spoon. Cheryl Cole in Coronation Street Cheryl Cole returned to TV, not on The X Factor but with a cameo in Coronation Street. The singer played barmaid Tina's best friend. Richard Branson in Casino Royale The Virgin boss saved the Bond filmmakers a significant wad of cash by providing them with a plane at the last-minute and asked if he could have a walk-on part in exchange. "Martin said: 'Come to the airport and we'll stick you in the little security thing and you can set the bells off.' He had a lot of fun and he was a trooper and it was a long night," said producer Barbara Broccoli. Jennifer Aniston in South Park The then-Friends star Jennifer Aniston surprised us all by voicing the character of teacher Miss Stevens in the show’s episode Rainforest Schmainforest. Lindsay Lohan in Ugly Betty You could have been mistaken for thinking you were watching Mean Girls as Lindsay Lohan took on the role of the bullying Kimmie in the fashion magazine series. Paris Hilton in the OC Paris Hilton tried to persuade us that she was more than just a dumb blonde by talking Magical Realism with Seth (Adam Brody) in a nightclub. He didn’t look convinced and neither were we. Stephanie Meyer in Twilight The Twilight writer made a sneaky appearance at the Forks diner, as a customer working away on her laptop (she was writing Breaking Dawn actually). She ordered a vegetarian sandwich – very deep. Geri Halliwell in Sex And The City Geri Halliwell managed to upstage even Kim Cattrall by squeezing her plentiful bust into a teeny tiny halterneck bikini top. Robbie Williams in Eastenders Blink and you would have missed Robbie Williams’ 1995 cameo answering the phone in the Queen Vic. It wasn’t what we called pivotal to the plot but the ratings for the episode soared with his fans. Kylie Minogue in Moulin Rouge The petite singer was shrunk down to size as the Green Fairy in Baz Luhrmann’s musical hit, and sang The Hills Are Alive With The Sound Of Music, as you’ve never heard it sung before. Tony Blair in The Simpsons The former Prime Minister agreed to lend his voice to the American show because his children were such big fans. It must have been a welcome relief from the day job; his 50-second sketch was filmed during the height of the Iraq War. Sean Connery in Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves The James Bond star got paid £250K for the two days it took to film his part as King Richard – but he donated it all to charity. Anna Kournikova in Me, Myself And Irene Anna Kournikova was a hit off-court as she appeared as a police witness with an unlikely boyfriend in Me, Myself & Irene. Alice Cooper in Wayne’s World The rocker gave us a history lesson on Milwaukee. We’re really not worthy. Billy Idol in Wedding Singer Billy Idol smoothed the way for true lovers, Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler, via a hostess trolley and aeroplane intercom. Britney Spears in How I Met Your Mother After shaving her head and being hospitalised, Britney Spears bounced back to her best in this TV show, as dippy receptionist Abby. Victoria Beckham in Ugly Betty Victoria Beckham took on bride-to-be Wilhelmina through the medium of fashion. Plenty of perma-pouts and Brand Beckham promotion, mixed in with an accent that we barely recognised. Status Quo in Coronation Street The band had been fans of the Street for years but it was their friendship with Bruce Jones, who plays Les, that helped them land a cameo spot as the band at his character’s wedding to Cilla. Madonna in Will & Grace Madonna only had one diva-like moment when she appeared on the sitcom as Karen’s friend, Liz. Apparently the singer didn’t like any of the outfits that the wardrobe department had selected for her and decided to wear her own Dolce & Gabbana clothes instead. George Clooney in Friends We couldn’t get enough of Dr Ross in 1995. Not only was he setting our pulses racing in ER, but he turned up with Noah Wyle to treat Friends' Monica and Rachel to his bedside manner. Lucky things! Pamela Anderson in Borat One of the few people in the Borat film who was actually in on the act, Pamela Anderson was abducted by the Kazakhstani journalist, who wanted to marry her. Keith Richards in Pirates of the Caribbean Johnny Depp always cited Keith Richards as his inspiration for Captain Sparrow, so it wasn’t so surprising that when they created the role of Sparrow’s father in the third film, they went straight to the Rolling Stone. Lance Armstrong in Dodge Ball The ultimate pep talk from the (now-disgraced) cyclist, who delivered his lines with dead pan confidence. Paula Abdul in Bruno The former American Idol judge was told she would be appearing in a “fun Japanese game show” but Paula Abdul knew something was up when she was ordered to sit on top of two gardeners and eat sushi off the stomach of another. Paula said it’s “scarred her for life”. Tom Cruise, Gwyneth Paltrow et al in Austin Powers Goldmember The A-listers were lining up to appear in Austin Powers by the time the third movie came out. Tom Cruise, a leather-clad Gwyneth Paltrow, Steven Spielberg, Danny Devito and Kevin Spacey almost stole the show in the first five minutes. Brad Pitt in Friends This was back when Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt were so inseparable, she even took him to work with her. Tom Cruise in Tropic Thunder Tom Cruise stole everyone’s thunder with a fat suit, bald head and some crazy dancing in Ben Stiller’s comedy flick.
