Anyone famous live near you?

Ok, I'm struggling with 'famous' here any very UK based but...

James Morisson lives about half a mile away from us.
Fat Boy Slim & Zoe Ball live a couple of miles away.
Chris Difford of Squeeze lives in the Marina, 3 miles away.
Will Young has a holiday home down the road.
Chris Eubank is about a mile away.
Des Lynam, Dennis Healy, Jamie Theakston, Jordan & Peter Andre, Steve Coogan and Preston from The Ordinary Boys and BB are also local.

Very cool...I live 45 minutes from DC does that count? I live less then an hour away from the President of the US. Robert Duvall lives about 20 mintues from me. I'm sure there are others. I know Julia Roberts had a horse farm at one time across the river in MD from us. Most of the Redskins live in the area...

heh, old Buckeyes are all over the place in Columbus. I routinely see Pete Johnson at the bar where I go to watch NFL games in the fall; guess he knows the owner or something.

Now finding someone 'tabloid' famous in Columbus (aside from Eric Clapton), that would take some work. :p
