Derby County Celebrity Fans and Famous Fans
Margaret Beckett Links-to-the-area Fan
Margaret Beckett was the MP for Derby South from 1983. Whilst we don't expect that she was singing along in the Columbo End or the Popside Pen at the Baseball Ground, she did try to get involved to help save the club when Derby faced liquidation in 2022.
Tim Brooke-Taylor Fan
The comedian is best known as one of "The Goodies", from the surreal 1970s comedy show of the same name. He supported the Rams having been born in the north Derbyshire town of Buxton, and there are a few claims on the old interweb that at some point he was actually honorary Vice-President of the club. We emailed Derby County to find out if this was true, but they never replied.
Timothy Dalton Alleged Fan
Geoff Hoon Fan
The Labour MP was born in Derby and has apparently been a regular sight at Pride Park over the years.
Niall Horan Fan
Mike Ingham Dual-Club Fan
Kevin Lloyd Fan
Whilst there might be a few doubts surrounding how much of a Derby County fan that Timothy Dalton is, there were certianly no doubts about fellow actor Kevin Lloyd's football loyalties. Playing the much-loved "Tosh" Lines character on ITV's police drama The Bill, Llloyd was a lifelong fan of the Rams up until his death in 1998. So much so that, when he appeared on This Is Your Life in 1992, the Derby County squad paid tribute to him on the show.
Jack O'Connell Fan
The actor (best known for Skins and This is England was born just outside Derby, in Alvaston, and is a lifelong supporter of the Rams.
