Liverpool celebrities back in time: 26 pictures of Liverpool celebrities when they were young

Take a look at some of Liverpool's most famous faces many years ago - including Jodie Comer, Stephen Graham and the Rooneys.

Liverpool is the birthplace of many brilliant people, who have been household names all over the globe - from the greatest rock band of all time to Hollywood actors.

While these people may now be instantly recognisable when they appear on our television screens or on our social media feeds, once upon a time they were just normal people growing up in the Merseyside, just like the rest of us, and had no idea just how famous they would become.

We have taken a look back in time and dug out some old photos of some of Liverpool and Merseyside's most well known celebrities - from Jodie Comer to Tom Baker - taken many years ago.

Look through our gallery and see how many you recognise - some are hard to recognise, and sadly some are no longer with us, but these celebs are truly Liverpool icons.
