From a comedian to a Coronation Street legend, these celebrities have moved to Norfolk in recent years.

1. Janet Street-Porter

Journalist and Loose Women panellist Janet Street-Porter announced that she had moved to Norfolk in 2019, leaving life in a remote Yorkshire village behind.

She said her nearest village shop at her new home was in Thurlton and described the area as "like The Archers".

In June this year, she wore a crown on Loose Women that she had bought from The Needlecraft Shop in Beccles.

2. Graham Cole

Graham Cole OBE, best known for playing Tony Stamp in police drama The Bill for 25 years, moved to Norfolk in 2021.

It is his second spell in the county as he also lived in Wroxham many years ago, but had to move back to London due to work.

Last Christmas he starred as Alderman Fitzwarren in the Norwich Theatre Royal panto Dick Whittington and his own show 'So You Think You Know Me?' is coming to the Playhouse in October 2022.

3. Joe Pasquale

Comedian Joe Pasquale moved to Norfolk in March this year and told Chris Moyles on his Radio X show that he really liked the accent.

He is no stranger to East Anglia, having performed at many theatres and holiday parks, and he lived in Hopton-on-Sea many years ago.

4. Beverley Callard

Another Norfolk newcomer is Beverley Callard, who is best known for playing Liz McDonald in Coronation Street.

She shared news of the move on Instagram in May and pictures of trips to The Wildebeest in Stoke Holy Cross and The Ivy in Norwich.

5. Jessie Buckley

Irish actress and singer Jessie Buckley recently won the best actress Olivier Award for playing Sally Bowles in the West End revival of Cabaret.

The star of stage and screen revealed in an interview with The Guardian last year that she had bought a house in Norfolk that dates back to the 1600s.
