Default Who would you invite around for Christmas Dinner

A recent poll (I heard on the radio - no idea who did the poll) suggests that of all famous people, the masses would most like Jennifer Aniston or Tom Hanks around for Christmas dinner.

Who would you have around? Personally, I'd go for Winston Churchill.

If I was forced to pick a person alive today, I'd have Alan Sugar - just so I could dress him as an Elf.

Jennifer Aniston or Tom Hanks? What dull choices.

As I am cooking Christmas lunch, yet again, I'm rather tempted to pick Jamie Oliver just so I can shove him in the kitchen and I could have a day off.

If I could choose anyone, right now I'd pick Eric Morecombe to join us for Christmas Day lunch. Inately funny man and reminds me of my late uncle.

I'd have Churchill too.

Or maybe Lennox Lewis

how many people are we allowed?- and can we dress them all as we want?- If thats the case it might just be ryan reynalds dressed as spiderman

I'd go for Vivienne Westwood, Tim Burton, David Attenborough, Derren Brown, Michael Palin, Alan Carr, Joanna Lumley and Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman as the waiters :-)

Palin's a great shout.

Good from you.

Thinking about it, I'd bin Alan Sugar as Elf and have Jack Nicholson. Much more fun.

Yeah, but I reckon before you get the halved-grapefruits-with-half-a-maraschino-cherry-on-top dishes cleared away he'll have stood up with sufficient violence to have broken your Habitat chair and barged off with a "**** this shit" scowl on his face. Worth a shot, though.

Mmm, I'd do that too knowing what I know now.

Boris Johnson is a quality idea.

Normally someone would have suggested Hitler by now?

For me, it would be Mum, Dad & all the kids, parents-in-law (but not evil sister-in-law). That would be my ideal Christmas. Doubt it will ever happen, though.
