Who do you consider the most influential person is in Essex?

From sports stars to business tycoons to actors and politicians you can now have your saying voting in the third annual Essex Power 100.

Starting back in 2016, the list names the people who are either born or live in the county that have biggest impact on residents.

Last year, Chigwell resident and billionaire Lord Alan Sugar topped the charts, most well-known for his long-running television series The Apprentice.

Owner of Billericay Town FC Glenn Tamplin was named runner-up and rock legend Sir Rod Stewart took the bronze prize.

Other names who made the 2018 list who will be fighting to stay on include Eastenders actor Danny Dyer, Conservative MP Priti Patel, comedian Rob Beckett and Paralympian Anne Wafula Strike.

Deadline to submit your nominations is Saturday, September 21.
