More than 40 notable people have spoken about their lives and Sheffield to Star interviewer Richard Blackledge over the past 12 months – here are some of the best quotes and highlights from the year’s conversations. Michael Palin: “Sheffield had lots of space, outside on the moors and the crags up in Lodge Moor and all that – you could access the countryside straight away.

In almost all of those places, her working life has continued as usual. “Last year I was moving every other week, or almost every couple of days,” she says. “Time to go, time to go.
