David Beckham
Footballer who has played at some top clubs over the years, such as Manchester United and Real Madrid. Most notably he played for Manchester United under Alex Ferguson for many years and had great success winning the major football trophies whilst he was there. After a publicised alleged fallout with Ferguson he then moved to Real Madrid. Toward the end of his career he moved to the LA Galaxy in America for a contract worth a huge sum over a few years. He has played a lot for England and was instrumental in their success for many years. He is without doubt the most recognised footballer in the world and is now seen as something of a celebrity in Hollywood outside of football and of course is also known for his marriage to the Spice Girl Victoria Adams, now Victoria Beckham, and he is often in the press. He is also seen as a heartthrob and often voted as one of the most attractive men in the world so he is probably the biggest celebrity to come out of football of his generation.

William Shakespeare
The most famous English playwright of all time, 1564 - 1616. He wrote a large number of plays in different genres, such as comedies, tragedies, histories and of course romances. Some of his work is still regularly studied in classrooms to this day so his influence is enduring; for instance Romeo and Juliet and Macbeth are still commonly studied. His longest play was Hamlet which many consider to be the greatest play of all time. His influence on the English language was immense with a surprisingly high number of words tracing their origin to his work, as indeed do many phrases. His mind was clearly very productive and his command for story telling and commenting on humans and humanity meant his stories have reached through the ages even if the language now is difficult to understand. For many he is the greatest writer that has ever lived.

Wolfgang Pauli
