Broadcaster and writer Stephen Fry has been voted the most popular person to have a pint with at a beer festival.

Actor Oliver Reed was runner-up in the poll, Top Gear host James May came third and Winston Churchill was fourth.

Over 600 people voted, and one of the reasons given for Fry was "the quipping would be as good as the quaffing".

The survey was published ahead of the Great British Beer Festival, which starts on Tuesday.

The women with the most votes were the Duchess of Cambridge and Lady Gaga, who shared 11th spot with Prime Minister David Cameron.

You've always taken great pride in your work ethic. Abandoning a project before it is finished will weigh on your conscience. Do the best you can with a severely reduced budget. The results won't be thrilling, but they will be respectable. Nobody will blame you for having to make bricks from straw.More
