    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 :emoticon-0108-speec

    Fat Boy Slim aka Norman Cook

    The Housemartins

    Everything But The Girl

    Mick Ronson

    Surely there must be somebody who is known worldwide? <eek>
