Once Villa start to be successful again I think we will see all sorts of celebs crawling out of the woodwork claiming to be life-long fans. Do you know there is a respected French rock band called Aston Villa? Seriously, they named themselves after the football team, if you don't believe me go to http://www.rfimusique.com/siteEn/biographie/biographie_6290.asp

Ian Lavender (Pike from Dad's Army). Look at his scarf in the old episodes. He chose it because it was Villa's claret and blue.
