    Question Famous people from Hull?

    Are there any worldwide known people from Hull?

    I'm updating the info about Hull on my site (fixing the errors the previous guy wrote 6 years ago).
    I haven't heard of any of the "celebrities/bands" he has written down

    Fat Boy Slim aka Norman Cook

    The Housemartins

    Everything But The Girl

    Mick Ronson

    Surely there must be somebody who is known worldwide?

    Err... there's Reece Shearsmith, one of the blokes who made 'The League of Gentlemen' and 'Psychoville'.

    Tom Courtenay, some old bloke.

    Amy Johnson, first woman to fly around the world alone.

    Deano?

    I think William Wilberforce made a bit of a name for himself.
