It’s that time of the year when every Lancastrian starts to get excited!

With just days to go to Lancashire Day, every true-blooded man, woman or gender neutral Lancashireperson is looking forward to discovering who will lift the crown in 2020.

In previous years, the ‘Rochdale Cowboy’ Mike Harding and cricketing legend and Sky Sports TV presenter David ‘Bumble’ Lloyd have both claimed the accolade in the keenly-contested competition.

We’ve compiled a list of great living Lancastrians from nominations received via Twitter, Facebook and email.

But who gets your vote?
