    Does anyone know of any famous people that originate from Stafford?

    Obviously everyone knows about Niel Morrisey, but there are loads more.

    The lad who plays Spike in Hollyoaks is from Stafford and I see him pretty much every time I go out around town.

    Isn't the lady who plays Audry in Coronation Street from Stafford too?

    She bought a house in Stafford but is not from Stafford.

    I believe one of the Artic Monkeys went to Stafford Uni, I see Neil Morresey now and again in BMW X5

    Erm.....
