Bradley Wiggins

'I’m a Liverpool football fan and I’ve sat in the Kop many a time and watched those guys, so it’s really nice to hear them applauding me.’

Daniel Craig

'When I was growing up, my heroes were the Liverpool football team,' said Craig. 'All of them – and I was a big fan of Kevin Keegan, particularly.'

Craig Charles

'My first game was Liverpool v Middlesbrough. We won 2-0 and Souness had a big fight with Jimmy Case. The first time I went to the Kop I hit my head on a barrier and got knocked out. The crowd carried me to the front where the Red Cross were. I got a brilliant view.'

John Bishop

'My dad fed me, so there was no chance of being anything other than a Red, everyone loved Keegan but I liked John Toshack as well. He was like the John Wayne of football – the strong and silent type. There was always something happening around him but he never seemed to move.'

'Liverpool have won 18 league championships and it meant a lot to read about King Kenny and Steven Gerrard – a hometown kid who now captains the team. And then to be at Anfield and see 40,000 fans screaming at the top of their lungs, the whole game was an unbelievable experience for me.'
