For a small northern town, Bolton has produced more than its fair share of successful business people and celebrities.
The richest Boltononians by far include the founder of Bolton-based Warburton’s bakery and the founder of AO World. Elsewhere, there are TV presenters, actors and comedians that have also become millionaires over the years.
