We have seen them all in our neighbourhood over the years.
So here goes with these reminders of the stars we have had in our midst. How many do you recognise?
1. Frankie Vaughan
Singer Frankie Vaughan visited Hartlepool Boys Welfare Club and we believe this would have been in the early 1970s.
2. James Martin
Back to 2003 and James Martin shows off his culinary skills to visitors to the Middleton Grange Shopping Centre.
3. Joey Essex
Back in 2015, Joey Essex was in Hartlepool to switch on the Christmas lights. Did you go along and meet him?

4. Cheeky Girls
They are the Cheeky Girls and they were in Peterlee's Castle Dene Shopping Centre in 2007 to switch on the Christmas lights. Did you go and see them?
