Here we celebrate just 10 of the Steel City’s famous sons and daughters in pictures – but if your favourites have been left out of this one, keeping looking because we’re going to do more.
You can also share your own stories and pictures of your friends, neighbours or schoolmates who became famous on our Retro and Memories - Sheffield Star Facebook page.
In these confusing and worrying times, local journalism is more vital than ever. Thanks to everyone who helps us ask the questions that matter by taking out a digital subscription or buying a paper. We stand together. Nancy Fielder, editor
