    Thinking initially in my frame ... John Lennon, Billy Connolly although love Kevin Bridges (currently my fav comic fullstop) Shirley Bassey or Tom Jones, Oscar Wilde. Im giving it more thought tho.

    England, Richard Dawkins
    Wales, Richard Burton
    Ireland, George Best
    Scotland, Andy Murray

    Not sure if these fit the criteria your looking for but for me all geniuses at their chosen careers.

    How does one determine their favourite person. My solution was to ask myself who, that has been alive in my lifetime, would I like to spend a few hours with, chatting.

    I couldn't narrow it down so I've listed 3 for each nation. Sorry if that's cheating.

    Ireland: Dermot Morgan, Rory McIlroy, George Best

    Wales: Neil Kinnock, Anthony Hopkins, Tommy Cooper (4th only on a technicality was Terry Jones)

    England: Peter Kaye, David Attenborough, David Bowie

    Scotland: Billy Connolly, Karen Dunbar, Nicola Sturgeon

    Slade, the only comedian me and my parents loved, the reason I support Hibs and the narrator on Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds album.

    Shame my stomach and hair have exchanged size since then!
