Eli Dingle, yes he's in Emmerdale, 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, wierd 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.
even more famous people from Chorley..
