From comedians and actors, to singers and physicists, Lancashire has produced endless talent over the years…

6. Peter Kay


Comedian and actor Peter Kay was born in the town of Farnworth, Bolton and spent his school days at Mount St Joseph School with fellow funny-man Paddy McGuinness. Not only has Peter produced, directed and starred in many of his own TV programmes, but he also holds a Guinness World Record for the most successful stand-up comedy tour of all time – performing to 1.2 million people. Surely proof that some of the funniest people originate from Lancashire!
