Ok, your Dinner table seats 8 people. There's you and your better half. You're planning a dinner party for 6 guests. Who would you invite, past or present?

One each of the following:

Singer
Actor/actress
Comedian
Sportsperson
Politician
Author

From my starting point below each poster may change one guest to one of their choice. Consecutive posts are not allowed. Neither can you change a guest consecutively.


Kylie
Suranne Jones
Les Dawson
Jess Ennis Hill
Barak O Barma
John Grisham

Ant. :D

Thanks def90cars, for correcting the spelling! I kept conjuring up a leprechaun in my mind every time I saw O Barma! :)

Mine would be:

Neil Young
Harrison Ford (in his younger days before he went a bit loopy)
Richard Pryor (we could talk about growing up in the same town)
Mo Farah
Barack Obama
CJ Sansome

A very poor choice over all as all are male.

Only MJ & Tangey followed the rules of this thread. :doh:

Never mind, it was obviously too complicated.

(Sorry for incorrect spelling of Barack Obama.)

If you sat Winnie next to Anne Widdecombe she could accuse him of being drunk as a lord and he could give his appropriate response!!
