Rupert Grint's a double too.  Watton-at-Stone are welcome to him as I'm claiming Rik Mayall.

Idris Elba appears twice. Jane Leeves is a new one on me. Ilford was Dame Maggie Smith and Helen Mirren to me. The Edge (not that edge) Was born in the same hospital as me before moving to Ireland.

I've got Lisa scott-Lee off of Steps for Abergele when everyone knows she's from Rhuddlan. Gutted because Colwyn Bay has got Timothy Dalton.

Ozzy Osbourne for me. And narrowing it down more, ex footballer Terry Cooke (never heard of him) from down the road in Marston Green.

Hannah Fry, the mathematician, went to Presdales School in Ware and is a year younger than me. Which means there is a good chance she was friends with a few of my teenage ex-girlfriends.

Most of those near me/where I grew up are unsurprising. Gillian Taylforth, George Ezra, Rupert Grint, Posh Spice and Sir Cliff.
