  • have you seen the bbc southern counties website mapo of celebs~? its pityfull.
  • People who 'reside here' are Jordan and Peter Andre, Paul Mccartney, Brian Capron, and loads of other Z'listers.
  • chris eubank?
  • Keith Flint from the Prodigy, I saw him and his HOT chick both wearing Army cargos, carrying Motobike Helmets down the lanes near the 'Biddi' shop in the summer of 2003. Some little shit, managed to collar him and get him to speak to his mate on the phone. I just wanted to let him know that Voodoo People is an Awesome track, but Im sure he already know that.
  • erm...Jorden! she lives in my godparent's old house! eww!
  • No one mentioned Jordan!!!! How could you forget her!!! Oh yeah and my mum said she saw her and Peter Andre at the marina the other day continuing their farcical relationship. I think she's moved away now but you'll still see her about sometimes. I've seen her 3 times in 7 years in the flesh and i've seen her with her flesh out countless times and so have you probably, and i've seen her getting done by Dane Bowers in a porn. She's such a dickhead, I am envious of her riches though. And how could you forget Daniella Westbrook and her late septum!?! I saw some bloke who used to be on the Bill yesterday. Baby Spice used to live in an expensive flat down the seafront. I think Naomi Campbell might have a house here.
  • Fatboy Slim, Chris Eubank, The Levellers, Peter and the Test Tube Babies, Nick Berry
  • Jordan has a house here and that guy from the fast show and Grass(the pub owner)
  • Nick Cave lives here, somewhere in hove so does mark williams of Fast Show
  • I met Dr. Legg (from Eastenders) down there in The Lanes, he was played by Leonard Fenton and what bushy eyebrows he had. Also met the chap who used to host Picture Box when I was a kid. Paul McGann smoking copious amounts of cigarettes in O'Neills. Norman Cook and Zoe Ball. Also, a bloke called Steve something-or-other who used to host crap kids' Saturday tv programme Motormouth in the mid-90's.
  • Guy McKnight and the Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster hail from sunny Brighton.
  • Zoe Ball and Norman Cook Chris Eubank.
  • eubanks an embarresment to the town
  • Helen Zahavi, who wrote the definitive Brighton novel, "Dirty Weekend", used to live in the Brunswick area.
  • Genesis P-Orridge: ex-Throbbing Gristle and Psychic TV frontman and Temple Ov Psychic Youth honcho, lived here before his "triggered exile" to the U.S.A.
  • Fat boy slim,Amir williams(sponsered by 360clothes,blueskin,also in new heroin video.
  • The only celebs I've seen in Brighton are Chris Eubank at Brighton Station, Zoe Ball and Fat Boy Slim in Waitrose and one of the Fast Show (the guy who played Jesse "This week I'll mostly be..") walking along Western Road telling whoever he was with he'll never drink again!
  • If I ever see Julie Birchill, I've got a list of over nine hundred quibbles with her air-head Guardian column to fire at her. Dollar fans should look out for David Van day serving burgers and chips from his mobile van.
  • Professor Flynn (Errol Flynn's dad) had a house here.
  • Patsy Rowlands from the later Carry on films lives somewhere in Brighton or hove I've seen her loads of times on Western road.
  • Chris Eubank ... occasionally seen around in his his huge yank truck holding up traffic.
  • The fabulously out-spoken journalist Julie Burchill! She's the only newspaper columnist with an ounce of intelligence and perspective this side of Armageddon, probably the best thing about her being that fact that she isn't in thrall to the pathetic celebrity obsession that seems to have gripped pretty much every one else on this fair isle of ours! Annie Nightingale - one of the best DJ's to have ever graced our conservative airwaves - (Jo "it's about the music" Whiley eat ya heart out), and one of the finest full-on party goers ever - she's put most students to shame even now! Long may she live!
  • OOh, saw Gaz from Supergrass yesterday, Zoe Ball shops in our local Tescos, saw Mark Williams and one of the McGanns at Brighton Station.....
  • The Levellers and their dirty flea-ridden following, who are actually all nouveau riche middle class dropouts who sleep at their parents when things get a little bit chilly.
  • Apparentely, Steve Coogan has moved from the Level, to where they all seem to end Hove! He just bought a nice little house a stones throw away from Chris Ewbank, just off the Drive. I think it was a pressie to himself after getting a contract for another TV show.
  • Fat Boy Slim Tampasam Chris Eubank
  • Steve Ovett (Olympic runner) went to Varndean and the Art College. His dad ran (runs?) a greengrocery stall in the market by The Level. Dora Bryan (comedienne) has a hotel on the seafront.
