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.

After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
