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.

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.
