I just google Leslie Phillips. He is 95 years old 

Wow ...I thought he was dead already 

Me too!  I was quite surprised to see the old chap still alive, ding dong!

I thought he'd be chasing fillies in the hear-after.

I can understand most ( though not my choice) but Monty instead of titchmarsh?  I would say Monty is too “recent”. and no Penelope Keith 😱😱

Is Titchmarsh loved?

 

What do people think of Penelope Keith?

Should the Queen go in there?

Yes to Monty, The Queen and Penelope.

 

Not overly keen on Titchmarsh

There are quite a few on the list I am not keen on but they could be considered “national treasures”,  I don’t rate Monty as a treasure whilst titchmarsh has longevity on his side a quality needed for national treasure status

Put it this way.....she's no Gena Rowlands.

UK only i'm afraid

Criteria can't be if we 'like/dislike' someone - I don't agree with some on the list meself

 

We need one more woman - thought Joan may have been popular.

Any other suggestions to complete our 25? 

machel posted:

Shirley Bassey ? 

Joan Hickson?

 

 

Joan Hickson is a wonderful suggestion and would have gone in but sadly she passed away some time ago. June Whitfield would also have been included but is no longer with us.

 

Shirley Bassey is a great suggestion - better than Joan Collins??
