Fry 'good for a quip and a quaff'

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

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.

If you're renting a space, your landlord may tell you to leave with very little notice. Stay calm. It will be easier to find new living arrangements if you remain logical. Spread the word on social media. Be specific about your needs. A friend or acquaintance may hear of somewhere suitable for you.More
