Burley and Henshall added to Who's Who
Award-winning actress-singer Ruthie Henshall, former Blues manager George Burley and a Birmingham judge who supports Ipswich Town are among the new names in the 2010 edition of Who's Who.
IPSWICH: Award-winning actress-singer Ruthie Henshall, former Blues manager George Burley and a Birmingham judge who supports Ipswich Town are among the new names in the 2010 edition of Who's Who.
They are joined by Hollywood superstar Brad Pitt, actor Ricky Gervais, and television presenters, Ant and Dec in the latest issue, which is published this week.
Inclusion in Who's Who - which contains potted biographies of 33,000 of some of the most famous, most talented and most influential people in the world including US President Barack Obama and iconic statesman Nelson Mandela - is by invitation only.
In her entry, Ruthie, 42, reveals that she has no time to relax and in the recreations section of her entry says: "I'm a mother of two small children - recreation, what's that?"
Burley, 53, makes his debut just three weeks after being sacked as Scotland manager.
Ipswich Town also appear in the new Who's Who, thanks to Birmingham-based circuit judge and former Northgate Grammar schoolboy Robert Brown, 53, who lists his recreations as "skiing, golf, vegetable gardening, supporting The Tractor Boys".

Everyone in Who's Who, with the possible exception of the fugitive peer Lord Lucan who vanished in November 1974 but who will remain in Who's Who until he is officially declared dead, is invited to compile his or her own entry so entries can be as long or as short as celebrities wish.
The late romantic novelist Dame Barbara Cartland hogged virtually a whole page - 211 lines altogether- to list her achievements.
But the entries of the Ipswich trio are comparatively brief and modest.
Ruthie, who appears under full name Valentine Ruth Henshall, explains her life story in 18 lines … five more than President Obama's 13-line entry and seven more than Nelson Mandela's 11-line entry.
Burley and Town fan Judge Brown make do with nine lines each.
The 2010 edition of Who's Who is published by A & C Black at �200.
