Let's be honest, any one of us would jump at the chance to appear in a video game - ANY video game - but we sadly don't have that option.

Celebrities, however, do have the luxury of appearing in games, and even being the star attraction on occasion - "Go! Go! Beckham! Adventure On Soccer Island" being the obvious example...

"Celebrity is as celebrity does", right Professor Lockhart?

Games are now big business, rivalling Hollywood in the entertainment stakes, so it's little wonder that everybody is trying to get in on the act.

The kids who grew up playing eight and sixteen bit titles on retro systems are now the movie stars and talk show hosts of the day.

Whether these sports stars, actors, musicians and comedians simply lend their likeness to a character, provide a voice over, or even step into the motion capture suit, celebrities appearing in video games is now as commonplace as famous fans turning up in Star Wars movies.

Here then are ten bizarre video game cameos NO ONE saw coming.
