Magnum PI star Tom Selleck hails from former pit village near Barnsley | The Sun

ALL-American Magnum PI star Tom Selleck hails from a former pit village near Barnsley, research has found.

The 78-year-old telly actor was born in Detroit, Michigan, and solved crimes in Hawaii in the hit 1980s series.

So it was a shock for distant cousin Caroline Coffey, 55, when she found him on a branch of her family tree.

The retired child support worker revealed: “Tom’s great-great-grandfather Robert ­Jagger was born in Yorkshire in 1856 and one of his sons, Thomas, emigrated to America.

"My gran was a Jagger.”

Caroline said she found a picture of her great-grandad Robert and he was “a dead ringer” of Tom — with the same eyes and moustache.
