Freddie Mercury because I'd love to get an insight into his real character.

Brian May because he's a pretty interesting bloke.

Sarah Millican because I think we'd have a good laugh.

Louis Theroux because he'd have some pretty interesting shit to talk about.

The Kray twins because I am fascinated by their story and would actually quite like to get to know more about them on a personal level.
