Fatboy Slim, aka Norman Cook, is a well-known Brighton fan, with his record label, Skint, having sponsored the club in the past.

However, the DJ and record producer comes clean about something that Seagulls fans may not be very well pleased with, though I’m sure can forgive him.

“Because I grew up in Reigate, I’m ashamed to say that for the early part of my life I supported our arch enemy, Crystal Palace,” he revealed.

Five years after moving to Brighton he was taken to a Brighton game by his mates and “instantly hooked”.

Robert Plant, who also performed in front of thousands, is a massive Wolves fan, going to his first game as a five-year-old and insisted that ever since legendary captain Billy Wright waved to him, that was the moment he was hooked.

He was made the club’s vice-president in 2009, but has said following Wolves put a strain on his marriage to Maureen Wilson who he eventually divorced in 1984.

“It played havoc with my marriage for a while,” he said. “When we won the League Cup in 1974, it took me three days to get home from Wembley to Worcestershire.

“I haven’t got a clue where I was. “I know the Mayor of Wolverhampton received the team in official form, and I remember being there for a minute or two.”

Pete Doherty of the Libertines also made an appearance at Glastonbury. His father, also named Pete, is a QPR fan and both the name and love of the club were passed down to the band’s frontman.

Despite being born around 300 miles from London and living all over Europe due to his Dad’s career in the British Army, the Doherty junior show an almost encyclopaedic knowledge of the London club and even produced a fanzine devoted to the Hoops in the ’90s.

He once serenaded Charlie Austin on Soccer AM and has been known to dedicate Libertines songs to QPR legend Stan Bowles.

Like Noel and Liam Gallagher, Blossoms’ Tom Ogden supports Manchester City and despite hailing from Stockport and sponsoring the town club, the band’s lead vocalist said it was always Man City for him.

“It started for me through my mum and my dad, both sides of my family are City fans,” he said. “From as early as I can remember I was into football.”

His first City game was a League Cup clash against Burnley at Maine Road, though it was the Etihad which helped put the Blossoms on their path to being famous on the music scene.

The band revealed that one of their most important gigs had been as an unknown band on MCFC’s City Square stage, which showcases local music talent before matches.

They then went on to support The Stone Roses on the main stage inside the stadium in 2016.

We could add so many more names but we’ll finish with Gaz Coombes from Supergrass, claiming to be a Man Utd fan.

The frontman is a Red Devils fan despite being brought up 160 miles away.

“When I was a kid I had family in Birmingham, family up north in Manchester and I was brought up in Oxford, ” he explained. “So it was a choice of Oxford United, Birmingham City or Manchester United. Man City didn’t even come into it, I might add.

“It was a choice of those three and at that point it was just an easy choice for me. My oldest brother was a United fan and had all the posters on the wall and stuff, so I just gravitated towards it really and that was that.”

When he first started supporting Man Utd, they were really struggling, so bad you’d wonder they had any support at all. They were, get this, “in the lower reaches of the First Division at that point”.
