They may have fame and fortune but there is a select band of celebrities
who are as badly off as we are when it comes to football. Below is a list of people in the public eye who are either known to or are believed to follow Everton.
Some of the following are tenuous, others disputable. Please feel free
to write in and challenge a
listing or suggest others. Remember, sports broadcasters are
notorious for hiding their true allegiances; what someone heard them say
in a bar one night may not necessarily be true!
There is obviously a
grey area to this feature and we haven't listed famous ex-players and
managers who haven't gone on to post-football careers in the public eye,
nor are we listing current or former Everton players, even if they are known Blues like Tom Davies, unless they remain in the public eye and are vocal in their support of the club.
