They can be dead or alive, fictional or real. You have to invite 6. So what's your table looking like. Please give reasons for your choices.

  1. The Devil
  2. God
  3. Sherlock Holmes
  4. Robert Downey Jr
  5. Winston Churchill
  6. My best mate Annmarie

1 & 2 - let's get to the bottom of this, few glasses of vino and they'll spill the beans.

3  - we need someone to verify if 1&2 are telling the truth or bullshitting

4 - he's either going to be incredible fun or a total dickhead, he's one of my slight celeb crushes.

5 -  no explanation needed, but he's not smoking in the house

6 - she's so funny. I have never laughed more in my life than in the company of this woman. We go back years.

Do you get to eat too?

Not many people will have cutlery for 7 people is all

Well 8, as the host brings a partner. I reckon your neighbour would lend you cutlery if you're that low on it. Surely the only people without 8 forks are students or single members of CAMRA. And yes you eat, as is normal for a DINNER party.

Oh that's good.

We have lots of cutlery, but only posh-stuff for 6.

If you put God and the Devil in the same room, I don't think they're going to notice if your cutlery is nicked from the nearest service station. Having never been in that situation though, I could be wrong.

It's those little attentions to detail that might keep you from an eternity of damnation

I don't mind a bit of damnation, I will provide toothpicks.

Hmm difficult. Right now I'd say...

 

1. Neil Hannon (Divine Comedy)

Seen him in concert a few times, heard and read lots of interviews, seems like a genuine bloke. He can provide the cabaret too.

2. David Hyde Pierce

Always thought he was the best and funniest actor in Frasier" and is a trained classical pianist so he could provide musical accompaniment too.

3. Matthew Rhys

Fucking phwoar! No other reason needed.

4. "Wild" Jack Suffolk bomb disposal expert, war hero and colourful character.

Because of the above. He would have some interesting tales to tell.

5. Dan Snow

I'd have to have a historian and he's as good as any. Quite fit, too.

6. Dracula

Would he get bitey or not? It would lend things a bit of an edge.

 

And yes, I do realise they are all men

Bruce Lee, Ghandi, Buddha, Dalai Lama and John Lennon. I like the cut of their jib- philosophy, attitude, intellect, etc.  All very 'me'.

Churchill- if anyone else had been prime minister, we would have capitulated to the Germans.

Fabian Cancellara- because he wins with such panache and seems a really cool guy.

Bode Miller- love how he does things his way, doesn't care if he wins or bins.  Charisma.

Sebastien Loeb- Cool as ice, under pressure.  Wish I could be like that.

Helen of Troy, Cleopatra, Marylin Monroe, Richard Burton, Oli Reed &  Peter O'Toole

Ok so me and my other half

My brother John, mutual friend Andy as he's a good laugh and is bound to offend someone, my uncle Andy as he's a good laugh too and has loads of stories from his 40 years on ships.  

Kittenkat as she comes across as having opinions and being a bit of a wind up merchant and drinks so would fit in,  then my mate Trev who anyone that uses the bikeradar or timetrialling forums will know as a repeat offender wind up merchant.

The I suppose someone else female who drinks, oh I know, a woman I used to share an office with called Nat because it'd be good to catch up.  

I think that would be lively but nobody who would take anything to heart.

I don't like cat food either, or mice. I also don't shit on my neighbour's flower bed (well not that I can remember).

Oh.. Well in that case can I replace KK with 10p Badger

David Attenborough

James Cracknell

Bear Grylls

Billy Connolly

Mohammed Ali

Bruce Lee

Oh and my wife...

What's all this about other halves? I don't want mine there while I'm perving over Matthew Rhys - and besides, I get to have dinner with him every night.

He can waiter if he wants to

I haven't invited anyone I would fancy, except my husband.

I think the Devil might be quite charming though. We might dance.
