A woman who has dedicated her life to getting snapped with A-list celebrities has revealed she’s now rubbed shoulders with more than 500 stars.
Sarah Winterman, 25, from Swadlincote, Derbyshire, regularly shares photos of herself with famous faces – including Oprah, Cara Delevinge and Emma Stone – to her 20,000 Twitter and Instagram followers.
Working flexibly as a babysitter means that the dedicated fan can attend up to four events a month – and is even on first name terms with some of the stars.

Sarah has met everyone from Katy Perry and Ellie Goulding to Jennifer Lawrence and Paris Hilton. Sarah said: ‘I’ve been meeting celebrities for nearly nine years.
‘I go to about four events a month, and have probably met more than 500 of them.
‘It’s now one of my hobbies that I enjoy a lot. I went as a one-off in 2009 and it just went from there.’
She says that the buzz of meeting celebrities is what spurs her on to keep attending red carpet events.
‘I mostly meet them at events, like award ceremonies and premieres, but there’s been the odd time that I’ve run into celebs on the street or at hotels when they’re doing promotional work.
So, who’s the nicest of the stars she’s met? Sarah explains: ‘My favourites are Anne Hathaway, Ryan Reynolds, Keira Knightley and Katy Perry, who I’ve met the most.
‘The nicest were probably Margot Robbie, Saoirse Ronan and Mark Hamill, and the rudest I’ve met were Benicio Del Toro, John Lithgow and Laverne Cox.’

She said she has even made a whole new group of friends while attending red carpet events,
Sarah added: ‘I’ve met new people doing this which I’d now call best friends.
‘I get a schedule diary sent to me every month and plan that way in advance what I’d like to attend or who to meet.
‘Luckily, I have a job that can be easily covered by someone else when I need to go away or travel.
‘Some celebs have recognised me – Anne Hathaway, who I’ve met at least six times, knew who I was by the second meeting.
‘She then spoke about me and my friend at an after party, mentioning to fellow cast and guests how sweet we were.’
