Stephen has bigger fish to fry than being PM
Stephen Fry has finished top of a ‘Digital Spy' poll as the celebrity the public would most like to see become Prime Minister.
Bookmakers William Hill think that this is unlikely, despite the current spate of celebs entering politics, and offer 1000/1 that he becomes PM within the next 20 years.
"There is no doubting the fact that Stephen Fry is an incredibly intelligent individual and there are those that think his intelligence would be well served as leader of the country," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly. "But unfortunately, we cannot see this happening."
Hills think it is a lot more likely that Fry will be made a knight, offering 16/1 that he is announced as Sir Stephen in or before the 2017 New Year's Honours list.
He is also 10/1 to reunite with Hugh Laurie to recreate A Bit Of Fry And Laurie by the end of 2013.
