If you could choose ten famous people (alive or passed) to have a dinner party
I think I'd go for Elizabeth 1, even though I'd be hugely intimidated, it would be just amazing to see her and hear her speak, then Noel Coward because he's just so witty, and of course Shakespeare. Then maybe Julian Fellows, I love his scrips and books so he would be good value and Dame Maggie Smith because I'm sure she would be really amusing ...
... I think Julia Childs would be fascinating and Stephen Fry, another witty one. But just so I wasn't completely out of my depth I'd add Hamish Blake (aussie comedian) he just makes me laugh as does Tina Fey, oh and Kate Winslet, because I'm sure she's down to earth and fun to be with ... though she may have to slap me if I started hyperventilating at my own guest-list.
