UK celebrities

There is something about celebrities that fascinates us.

Whether we are inspired by them, or just simply plagued by a bizarre curiosity, we want to know what they are doing, when they are doing it, and how. It is precisely for this reason that celebrity news websites are so popular around the world. So, in this article, we would like to focus on the greats of the 20th century. Let us take a look at a few British celebrities who were on top in the past decade, and where are they now.

Jimmy White

To call snooker a pub game would be a disservice. After all, the game is exceedingly popular among fans of sports. And it is also terribly popular on numerous sports betting sites. If you go over to, you will find a plethora of websites that cover pool, snooker, and many other variants on the game.

When it comes to British snooker players, Jimmy White is possibly the most popular. He began his career in the mid-70s and quickly gained notoriety for his fluid, aggressive playstyle. It is precisely this offensive form of play that earned him the 1980 World Amateur Champion title, 3 World Senior Champion titles, and two of the three major snooker titles (The UK Championship and the Masters).

Today, Jimmy White is still playing, if you can believe it. At age 60, Jimmy White is still going strong. His most recent major victory came in 2019, when he won the World Seniors Championship. Since then, he has consistently been reaching the finals and semi-finals at some of the most prestigious events. Certainly, he has earned his ranking as one of the best snooker players of all time.

Kate Bush

Kate Bush is a pioneer in the art pop and progressive genre. In the 1970s, she gained worldwide prominence with her debut single “Wuthering Heights”, a song inspired by the novel of the same name. However, that is not all she is known for. Since her single, Ms. Bush has released 25 singles that charted on the UK Top 40. She has done duets with some of the most prominent singers of the 20th century, including Peter Gabriel. Her songs have also appeared in numerous films and TV shows, most recently and notably the Netflix hit sci-fi/horror, Stranger Things.

In 2022, Kate Bush enjoys a spot at the Ivors Academy (which she was awarded in 2020). The Ivors Academy is an independent association of British musicians and artists. Her music has also seen a resurgence among Gen Zers, with her songs appearing frequently on the video-sharing platform TikTok.

John Cleese

One of the most popular and beloved British actors in the world, John Cleese is best known as one of co-founders of the comedy troupe Monty Python. Responsible for the famous English sketch show Monty Python’s Flying Circus and the numerous filmic adaptations of it, John Cleese is one of the most influential comedians in the world.

In recent years, John Cleese has been doing a lot of speaking engagements. He was scheduled to appear in Cambridge University in 2017. However, he cancelled his appearance. In 2022, he was cast in the upcoming drama film The Palace, a black comedy taking place in a Swiss hotel.
