Lady Gaga may have admitted to being nervous about filming her part for an upcoming episode of The Simpsons, but she’s actually in very good company. The series, now reaching the end of its 23rd season and boasting the accolade of longest running prime time scripted US TV programme, has featured countless stars since it first aired in 1989. Here's a few of our favourite Simpsons celebrity cameos…

Rex

Michelle Pfeiffer

Stylist cover star Michelle Pfeiffer appeared in season five of The Simpsons. Entitled The Last Temptation of Homer, Pfeiffer plays said temptation: a character called Mindy Simmons who is hired to work alongside Homer at the nuclear plant. They become attracted to each other but only go as far as sharing a kiss as Homer doesn’t want to cheat on Marge.

Rex

Zooey Deschanel

In Apocalypse Cow from season 19, Zooey Deschanel plays a farm girl called Mary. She narrowly misses being married off to Bart after he saves a cow from the slaughterhouse and gives it to her – a clear sign, according to Mary’s country bumpkin father, that Bart is asking for her hand.

Rex

Drew Barrymore

After revealing that she was a huge fan of The Simpsons, Drew Barrymore appeared in an episode entitled Insane Clown Poppy in 2000. She played Krusty the Clown’s long-lost daughter, Sophie, the result of Krusty's one-night stand with a soldier who fought in the Gulf War.

Rex

J.K Rowling

Following an unexpected windfall, the Simpson family head to London on holiday in a 2003 episode entitled The Regina Monologues. After a meet and greet with former PM Tony Blair, the clan run into J.K Rowling standing outside a bookshop, before causing havoc at Buckingham Palace.

Rex

Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway loved appearing on The Simpsons so much she’s done it twice. Her first time was in the episode The Good, the Sad and the Drugly from 2009, as an 11-year-old girl called Jenny who manages to get Bart to do some good for once. Her second stint was in 2010 as Krusty the Clown’s new co-star Princess Penelope in Once Upon A Time In Springfield – a role for which Hathaway won an Emmy Award.
