Stephen is the second most influential gay in Britain.

2. (23) Stephen Fry, Television Host, Actor, Author

In 2006 he was the public's ninth greatest star and the BBC's sixth greatest living icon. His BBC2 quiz show QI has a following that would be called "cult" if it weren't so huge. Also stars in new ITV1 drama Kingdom. He has won plaudits for his work on mental health issues and is the most intelligent man in the world, according to readers of the Radio Times.


The other 99 are here...

I think of myself as someone who is filled with love, whose only purpose in life was to achieve love. - Stephen Fry

Well they got that last bit slightly wrong. In the Radio Times he was voted most intelligent person on tv not in the world!

Interesting to see how much he's jumped since the last list - 23rd to 2nd place.

Assuming direct control...

X-D yeah well he probably is anyway - if you exclude Stephen Hawking

Side note - I know I must have been living under a rock - but I didn't know Alan Bennett was homosexual...

Ditto. Fascinating.

I mean, who'd have thought Sir Ian Mckellan was gay?

But Ian is SOOOOOOOOO BUTCH

And I thought Stephen granted Alan membership into the Gay Community.

Thanks for this link!

Interesting to see that Rupert Everett is also a Norfolk boy. Has anyone read his autobiography? Is it any good?

I'm glad other people are being surprised at people, because I feel like I've been living in a cave or summat.

But then why would you know, I suppose.
