Which celebs would you say are national treasures in the UK? Feel free to utilise polls to come to democratic conclusions on national treasure status.


#2

Andy Murray
Dame Judi Dench


#3

Attenborough but I’m not sure why.


#4

Victoria Coren-Mitchell.

Really miss autofill from old DiS.


#5

Nick Knowles


#6

Initially misread this as Dame Judy Murray, which would be an accurate suggestion in any case. (Agree with both of your suggestions too.)


#7

I was toying with the idea of including Judy Murrray as well.


#8

Big Narstie


#9

Stephen Fry?

  • Still a national treasure
  • Maybe was once a national treasure but is a bit of a buffoon these days
  • Never was a national treasure

don’t get the fascination with Fry. knows quite a bit about a few things and has a pleasant voice. so what?


#13

You leave Victoria THE FUCK alo… oh, I see. Carry on.


#14

I don’t know. There was a certain self-deprecating charm about him for a while - plus he had some well-documented health problems and it was a relief to see him get through these. Plus Jeeves and Wooster. But these days: not so sure.

Wow really? Judy Murray as a a National Treasure? Have it on good authority by a mate who worked as a ball girl at Wimbledon that she is an absolute chode. Wanted to be treated like tennis royalty apparently even though she’s famous for being Andy’s mum.


#16

you forgot to mention the fraud and doing a runner from that west end show man


#17

Yeah I think that was because he was unwell to the point of near-suicide: http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2015/12/29/stephen-fry-suicide-west-end-play_n_8888522.html

And I didn’t know about the fraud, but it looks like he was about 17 at the time.


#18

Ah. I’m happy to back down on this one, though I think that the ‘popular vote’ would have her down as a national treasure


#19

Just asked my pal for the finer details of what went down.
