THE search is on for the champion Tyke.
Whether your local hero happens to be DJ turned fundraiser Jimmy Saville, author Charlotte Brontë, singer Jarvis Cocker or social reformer William Wilberforce, Yorkshire folk are being given the chance to choose which famous Tyke has done most to put the county on the map.
Following on from the success of the BBC Great Britons campaign, a new regional search begins on Monday to find the county's most famous son or daughter.
They could be an artist, politician or movie star.
Many Huddersfield shoppers had plenty of suggestions which included home-grown celebrities such as actor James Mason and politician Harold Wilson.
In last year's national poll, wartime leader Winston Churchill outstripped other contenders including William Shakespeare, John Lennon and Princess Diana.
The Yorkshire list, to be broadcast on BBC Look North at 6.30pm on weekdays and on BBC radio, is sure to include nominations from the public including explorer Captain Cook and poet Ted Hughes.
Whether it mentions the county's more off-the-wall celebs remains to be seen.
Presenter Michael Parkinson, outrageous comedian Frankie Howerd and nightclub owner Peter Stringfellow are all Yorkshire lads.
