Ilkeston, Derbyshire Famous Residents

Cringing Cult of Celebrity (Famous residents and ex-residents

* Mathew Lister. He has made it all the way to sunny sydney Australia. Only time will tell before the Australian govenment catches up with the barstard.

* Mad Alan, he's the man. We've all been lonly since Kim Tramp left... Daniel GurlinG! Whenever I see him and his scouse mate "dez" i can't help but chuckle.

* Ilkeston's No.2 son - "Rocket" Ron Haslem, motorcycle world champion. Was Ilkeston's No.1 son until stopped for riding up and down Bath Street with no licence and no insurance. Allegedly.

* William Roach (Ken Barlow) was raised here, or to be more precise Cossal a village about two miles away. He is quite proud of his roots.

* Robert Lindsay

* Ben Roberts (from the Bill).

Buskers, Street Entertainers

* Mad Allan, what a character....nice to see his name in lights. An amusing character for many folk in Ilkeston. Id like to say thanks to him for coining such famous catchphrases like "WHAT YOU DOIN!?" "WHATS YOUR NAME!?" "Y' NOT!" "D'Y WANT Y CAR WASHIN?". Where would ilkeston be without such a local hero.

* Irish guy with banjo, maybe 'Mad Alan' can be included in this category too, he makes me laugh anyway!

I have lived in Ilkeston all my life. I live on Cotmanhay Road and I hate it.
Every day that I walk to school I get grief, because I look different and probabally listen to the wrong type of music that makes you fit in.
I can't see how I'm not normal because after all theres alot of people who dress simular to me and enjoy the same things as me.
Ilkeston people just don't seem to have any respect for anyone or anything.
Hopefully when I'm old enough to move out of my parents, I will get out of here.

Do you think the biggest population of Ilkeston and Cotmanhay sucks?
Are you unfortunate enough to live in the shit hole?

Thats what your doing here then..
