6 Famous Faces You Didn’t Know Were Everton Fans

From world-renowned musicians to global megastars, Goodison Park has seen its fair share of famous Everton fans.

The Toffees have earned admiration from a number of celebrities through the years, from music royalty to actual royalty.

We’ve even seen a famous face or two at Goodison Park. So, how many of these famous Everton fans have you seen at the match?

Sir Paul McCartney

Everton’s most famous – and probably most reluctant – fan is one quarter of Merseyside’s legendary Fab Four. Sir Paul McCartney was brought up in an Evertonian family and has supported the Blues since childhood.

Sir Paul is the only Beatle to support a Merseyside team. Both John Lennon and George Harrison never expressed any interest in the beautiful game while Ringo has confessed to being an Arsenal fan due to his stepdad.

Sir Paul has previously tried to claim in an interview with The Observer that he supports both Liverpool teams after making friends with Kenny Dalglish at a match, but we know that if you’re born a blue you’re forever a blue.

Even Sir Paul knows there’s no compromise. He once admitted: “If it comes to the crunch, I’m an Evertonian”.

Sylvester Stallone

The Hollywood action man, who made his name playing characters including Rocky Balboa and John Rambo, first became an Evertonian when his business partner and friend took him to a match.

Since then, Stallone’s love for the blues has grown and grown: he’s watched a number of Everton matches, asked fans to help him out during half-time when filming crowd scenes for the movie Creed and even admitted that he wishes he’d bought the club before sport became a “billionaire’s game”.

Liz McClarnon

One of Atomic Kitten’s original band-members is a devoted Evertonian. In an interview, she described her “old Everton scarf” as one of her most prized possessions and she reportedly once refused to give Gary Lineker an autograph after he had left The Ev.

The Eternal Flame singer has said her best Everton moment was watching the team bus drive past on Aigburth Road in 1985 where she was watching with her Dad and brother.

Dame Judi Dench

Yet another celeb on our countdown of famous Everton fans is Dame Judie Dench.

The UK’s very own national treasure and star of stage and screen is a patron of Everton’s official charity, Everton in the Community.

Dame Judi followed in the footsteps of her late husband Michael who was an avid Blue – and she’s also taken her grandson Sam to a number of matches.

The Oscar-winning star has been photographed at many matches over the years, including the 2009 FA Cup Final.

Amanda Holden


Britain’s Got Talent Judge Amanda Holden, has been a lifelong Evertonian and was even made an ambassador for Everton in the Community in 2016. The TV-star attends home and away games whenever her busy schedule allows and regularly tweets support for the club throughout the season.

In 2016, during a visit to Liverpool for Britain’s Got Talent auditions, Amanda took time out of her schedule to visit Goodison and help out with their ‘Pass on the Memories’ programme which supported people living with dementia in Merseyside. The charity is close to Holden’s heart as her Grandfather suffered from dementia at the end of his life.

Lee Latchford-Evans

A member of the world-famous pop group Steps, Lee Latchford-Evans is a proud Evertonian and a season-ticket holder.

The Tragedy singer began supporting the Blues after encouragement from his dad, who was a Blues fanatic. Lee’s middle name, Latchford, was given to him at birth in tribute to Everton-legend Bob Latchford.

The Steps star wrote a moving tribute after his father passed away, reminiscing about a childhood spent at Goodison wearing a warm hat decorated with badges and carrying a flag to cheer on the Toffees.

Nowadays, he often tweets about taking his young nephew to Goodison whenever he’s back in Liverpool.

The ‘Maybe’ Famous Everton Fans

Alongside the famous Everton fans above, there’s been plenty of rumours over the years of other potential Blues fans.

Justin Bieber is regularly referred to as an Evertonian after photos surfaced of him wearing the club’s third kit while playing soccer (although he’s also been spotted in a number of other kits including Chelsea, Arsenal and Barcelona).

Other possible fans have included the late Sir John Hurt, Harry Potter star Helena Bonham-Carter and, perhaps most surprisingly, the late Queen Mother who, supposedly, took a shine to the handsome Dixie Dean at the 1933 FA Cup Final – she then held a soft spot for the team from then-on-out.

We hope you’ve enjoyed our quick look at some famous Everton fans.
