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 smelly, animal abusing, moronic, pieces of crap. Ugly inside and out. Liars, bullies, and abusers.
As well as NPD, BPD, ASPD, HPD, Paranoia, and Sociopathy Debbie has
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 for attention, this includes pets as well as family members (like pretending their mum is dying), and can even include actually harming them (like her pets and probably her children) rather than faking they are ill/dying.

Mrs.Potato Hart definitely shows severe signs of all of these Cluster B disorders. This is the dramatic, emotional, and erratic cluster. It includes:
Borderline Personality Disorder tend to view the world in terms of black-and-white, or all-or-nothing thinking. Their tendency to see the world in polarized terms makes it easy for them to misinterpret the actions and motivations of others. Clearly, the Borderline Personality Disorder with its combination of distorted thought patterns, intense and under-regulated emotions, and poor impulse control is practically designed to wreak havoc.
Narcissistic Personality Disorder require a lot of admiration from other people in order to bolster their own fragile self-esteem. They can be quite manipulative in extracting the necessary attention from those people around them. Their need to be powerful, and admired, coupled with a lack of empathy for others, makes for conflictual relationships that are often superficial and devoid of real intimacy and caring.
Histrionic Personality Disorder are characterized by a pattern of excessive emotionality and attention seeking. Their lives are full of drama (so-called "drama queens"). They are uncomfortable in situations where they are not the center of attention. Moreover, the drama and exaggerated emotional expression often embarrasses friends and acquaintances as they may embrace even casual acquaintances with excessive ardor, or may sob uncontrollably over some minor sentimentality.
Antisocial Personality Disorder is characterized by a pervasive pattern of disregard for the rights of other people that often manifests as hostility and/or aggression. Deceit and manipulation are also central features. In many cases hostile-aggressive and deceitful behaviors include; may hurt or torment animals or people. They may engage in hostile acts such as bullying or intimidating others. They may have a reckless disregard for property. They often engage in deceit, theft, and other serious violations of standard rules of conduct.
