David Hasselhoff has claimed he has only ever met two people who didn't know who he was.

The Britain's Got Talent judge, who is a big singing star in Germany, spoke about the pros and cons of fame in an interview with the Sun.

"I should call Charlie Sheen. We were neighbours and I had his number but I've lost it," he said.
