But we're also home to famous actors, politicians, writers, boxers and more.

The Liverpool identity is wrapped up in many things. Is it where you were born? Or where you grew up?

Is it the way you talk? Or is it an attitude? Is it in your genes or maybe your politics? Or how you see other people?

Or the colour of your wheelie bin?

To people from outside Merseyside it's often difficult to tell the difference between someone from Liverpool and someone from one of the surrounding boroughs such as Knowsley, Sefton, Wirral, St Helens or even parts of Cheshire and nearby West Lancashire.

But locals tend to know.

Can you pick the scousers out of our list?

We've not included The Beatles, or Cilla Black or Sir Ken Dodd as they're too famous and obvious. And we know we've missed loads of others out but there are too many successful scousers to include everyone. We can save them for the next line-up.
