Before Dave Spikey, Reg Holdsworth was the Official spokesperson for Chorley, and is credited as inventor and copyright owner of the phrase ' buy one get one free'. Hilarious.
Sadly Reg moved away from Chorley due to the numourous attacks on his home.
If you know where he lives now, then please keep it to yourself as we wouldn't want the vandals to find out.
Unfortunately Reg is now only remembered as "a straight Christopher Biggins" or as "that creepy guy with the big red glasses".
Phil Cool, the original rubber faced comedian before Jim Carrey.
Unfortunately for Phil he isn't as funny as Jim or he'd still be performing, or maybe he just died, who knows?
Sir Henry Tate, invented sugar, a national hero, yet there is no statue in Chorley to commemerate him, shame on you Chorley.
Henry now lives in London in a gallery, or maybe he's dead, who knows?
Someone from libertyX, apparently one of them was from Chorley.
I saw their album in the poundshop in Wigan, I didn't buy it and they had loads of them, so if you're a fan get looking in the poundshop accross from Ethel Austin in wigan, (it's near McDonalds).
Starsailor, the whole band are from Chorley, where are they now though?
Not in Chorley that's for sure.
Bill Beaumont, I did see him in the town center once.
He walked right past the shop I was working in (and I nearly dropped the cakes I were putting in the window) on the floor in surprise!
Ian McShane, apparently he's from Chorley but myself and no-one I know has ever heard of him.
Dave Spikey, so famous he's mentioned elsewhere on this website.
Has released a DVD which my partner bought from the charity shop.
I turned it off after 5 minutes as I didn't have time to watch it, but I will review it when I get time.
Eli Dingle, yes he's in Emmerdale and not Chorley but TV isn't real.
The guy who plays him comes from Chorley.
This may not be actually true as he is good looking!
Steve Pemberton, another Chorley comedian.
The series of a league of gentlemen was ok, the film was brilliant.
His character of a butcher was apparently based on your typical sinister, weird looking chorley citizen.
Micheal Jennings, a boxer who I saw talking to some middle aged ladies once, he seemed nice.
I won't take the mick coz I don't want him to punch me.
Chorley nearly went to war with america last year when the americans claimed the captain of a pilgrims boat was american and the Chorley citizen claimed otherwise.
But after all the fuss he was from Standish.
Mr and Mrs Potato Hart. A couple of animal abusing, moronic, pieces of crap.
Munchausen's syndrome is a psychological disorder where someone pretends to be ill or deliberately produces symptoms of illness in themselves, Munchausens's-by-proxy is when they feign illness in others around them (like pretending their mum is dying) for attention, this includes pets as well as family members, and can even include actually harming them rather than faking they are ill/dying. Garbage. Ugly inside and out.
