First published in Literature

THREE Blackburn men, a guitar-playing judge who supports Burnley and former Blackburn Rovers boss Kenny Dalglish are among the 1,000 new entries in the 2012 edition of Who’s Who.

Who's Who, a world-famous reference book, contains 33,000 potted biographies of some of the most celebrated, talented and influential people in Britain and elsewhere.

The new edition, published this week, includes: *Judge Mark Gosnell, 54, a Leeds-based judge who lists just two recreations in his Who's Who entry: “Watching Burnley FC and playing guitar in a band called Wasted.”

*The Haslingden-born Archdeacon of the Isle of Man, the Venerable Andrew Brown, 56 ,lists his recreations as, “supporting Burnley FC, reading detective stories, walking, cooking, watching ‘chick flicks’ with my daughters.” He was educated at Haslingden Grammar School.

*Andrew Bradley, 56, Blackburn-born chief engineer on the Hawk Advanced Jet Trainer Aircraft at BAE Systems, who was educated at St Mary's College, Blackburn.

*Neil Dewhurst, 59, Blackburn-born president of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh.

*Denis Wormwell, 50, Colne-born chief executive officer of Shearings Holidays Group and a product of Colne Park High School and Blackburn College University Centre; *James Lupton, 56, Whalley-born chairman of London-based Greenhill Europe.

*Simon Csoka, 43, a Blackburn-born Manchester-based QC.

They are joined by Kenny Dalglish, England manager Fabio Capello, F1 driver Jenson Button and chef Michel Roux.

Everyone in Who's Who, with the possible exception of the fugitive peer, Lord Lucan, who vanished in November 1974, but who nevertheless retains his place in Who's Who, is invited to compile his or her own entry. The late romantic novelist, Dame Barbara Cartland, needed 143 lines to list her achievements.
