16 of the most requested famous Christmas dinner dates

Here in the PR and social team we have a bit of a reputation as “the team that do lunch” well you’ve seen Ab Fab haven’t you? OK Eddie and Patsy are just a bit OTT and not all PR’s are like them!
However I thought it would be fun to imagine our team were Patsy and Eddie giving a Christmas dinner party and asked them who they would invite and why!
As always scroll to the bottom to see what is behind our advent calendar’s door!

Johnny’s famous dinner dates

Madi’s famous dinner dates

5. Beyonce – She’s the queen of the world!!! We’d probably let her bring along Jay and Blue too – they’re the best celeb family after all.

6. Jennifer Lawrence – She’s a Hollywood megastar but one of the most hilarious stars on the screen. YouTube ‘Jennifer Lawrence funny moments’ and you’ll see what I mean!

7. Larry Lamb – Our Larry is an Eastenders legend and he cooked a mean roast dinner as Mick in the Christmas special of Gavin & Stacey. Plus we met him recently at a BBC Children in Need event and he was absolutely lovely.

8. David Attenborough – We could just listen to his stories all day and maybe he could narrate the whole dinner for us too.

Helen’s famous dinner dates

9. The Queen – Who wouldn’t want Lizzie gracing your Christmas table! Of course you would have to wait to serve dessert after The Queen has done her speech.

10. Louis Walsh – Most people would choose Simon Cowell but I personally think Louis is an unsung Irish rover. I mean he created WESTLIFE! Without him there would be no ‘flying without wings’

11. Barrie from Eastenders – No explanation is needed here

16. Tom Cruise – … well we need a bit of eye candy don’t we?

Personally I think this would be a really interesting Christmas dinner party, lots of banter, intelligent conversations, jokes and fabulous food cooked by Jamie.

    Sitting David next to the Queen is ideal as I think they would have alot to discuss. Louis Walsh should be changed for someone like Brian Cox.

    • Hi Jade!

      Brian Cox is good suggestion! Who would like to sit between at our table?

  • Jen Rogers

    Jamie Oliver – I would be able to listen to everyone’s conversations for a change from being in the kitchen!

    • Hi Jen!

      We like your style! We wish you a very Merry christmas 🙂

  • Kathryn

    Not sure a bout Keith chegwiin know one particularly himself would get anything eaten with his constant laughter, personally I would like Michael Palin, he must have some interesting tales to tell of his travels around the world

    • Hey Kathryn 🙂

      I think Johnny has become a bit obsessed with him ever since he met him last October – he even got a selfie!
      And Michael Palin is a good one!

      Merry Christmas!

  • Claire Eadie

    Loving Benedict Cumberbatch as a dinner guest actually! I think he’d make really interesting and intelligent conversation, and he seems like he’s got a good sense of humour too x

    • Hi Claire!

      He is the ‘man of moment’ isn’t he!
      Have a wonderful Christmas! 🙂

  • sandy ralph

    well i agree with who has been invited and as why but i would have to invite my idol too so i can drool all night and that is Phillip Schofield

    • Hi Sandy!

      Well he is a silver fox isn’t he! We’ve invited Holly so maybe she’ll bring Phil along?

      Merry Christmas 🙂

  • belinda porter

    Holly Willoughby I miss her on this morning

    • Morning Belinda 🙂

      We miss her too but hopefully she be back in the New Year!
      Have a wonderful Christmas!

  • Mrs Rachel Heap

    Would have to be Stephen Fry for me, I bet having a conversation would be so interesting he seems to be so wise and interesting

    • Morning Rachel 🙂

      How are you this fine morning? And he does doesn’t he!

      Have a Merry Christmas!

  • Christine Sennett

    Remove the Queen – Christmas dinner is meant to be informal and relaxed – not sitting nervously minding manners and Ps&Qs-slot in Mark Webber for eye candy and sports contribution

    • Hi Christine 🙂

      Oh yes and we do love the Australian accent!
      Have a wonderful Christmas 🙂

  • Layla Al-Zara’s

    i think there is some good choices but I would have to invited david beckham because in the afternoon when the excitement of Xmas has worn off and I’m bored, he can take the kids for a kick about outside, so I can put my feet up and watch the tele!

    • Hey Layla 🙂

      I think we can certainly make room for David – imagine Christmas at the Beckhams! What a treat that must be!

      Merry Christmas Layla!
