Little Britain stars David Walliams and Matt Lucas and presenters Ant and Dec are among the new entries in the latest edition of Who's Who.

Actors Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman have also been added to the society guide, which recognises "noteworthy and influential" people.

Details for comedian Ricky Gervais, actress Anna Friel and writer Mariella Frostrup are also new for 2010.

The 1,000 new names take the total number in the 162nd edition to 33,680.

As part of his entry, Lucas lists his pastimes as "eating crisps, watching football, eating chocolate, watching stage musicals, sleeping, eating crumpets," while Walliams, who swam the Channel, opts for "swimming".

Survival expert and Chief Scout Bear Grylls has a suitably adventurous list which includes "mountaineering, paragliding, sailing, yoga, martial arts and piano".

Money-saving guru Martin Lewis lists his hobbies as "trying to get my average Scrabble score above 400, reading historic novels, very poor golf, anything with lists, jive, watching athletics, supporting Manchester City".

Other famous names added to the list include tennis star Roger Federer, actress Ruthie Henshall, Peep Show star David Mitchell, author Julie Myerson and Royal Ballet dancer Edward Watson.

Artist and sculptor Louise Bourgeois is the oldest new addition, who will turn 98 on Christmas Day.
