John Lennon once got himself into serious trouble by suggesting that the Beatles were more popular than Jesus Christ. These days it would hardly cause a ripple, as is shown by a story in today's Express.

An internet-based matchmaking company called nomorefrogs.co.uk has carried out a survey to find out who would be the most popular person to share your Christmas turkey with. JC came in at a lowly 42nd place, just seven ahead of OBL - yes, that's Osama bin Laden.

Top of the pile was Aussie songstress Kylie Minogue, with Robbie Williams and Madonna just a cracker's-length behind. Graham Norton was voted an impressive sixth, one ahead of Nelson Mandela. Ominously for the Tories, Iain Duncan Smith did not make the top 100 at all, while Tony Blair almost gets a top table seat at number 13.

But IDS can share a compensatory mince pie with Kate Moss and Angelina Jolie, who themselves only just crept into the list. There are worse things in life.
