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

8. Victoria Wood


Victoria Wood is most recognised for her role in award-winning BBC comedy ‘Dinnerladies’ which she also wrote and co-produced, and her on-off working relationship with actress Julie Walters. Prestwich-born Victoria made Lancashire proud when she was awarded with an OBE in 1997, and again in 2005 when she was given the British Comedy Award for ‘Outstanding Contribution to Comedy’.
