In a bid to discover the nation’s dream celebrity guests for Afternoon Tea, National Tea Day polled over 1,000 avid tea lovers nationwide. Respondents chose one guest from each of the five categories which were Royal guest, International Superstar, Homegrown star, Comedian, Conversationalist. Celebrities included both the living and the dearly departed. 

After weeks of anticipation, the results are in! The nations’s ideal Celebri-Tea Party guests are Prince Harry, Marilyn Monroe, Idris Elba, Graham Norton and Sir David Attenborough

Having recently become a first time Dad, it comes as no surprise that Prince Harry is our favourite Royal taking 26% of the Royal vote.

Marilyn continues to hold a special place in our hearts with almost a third (30%) of the International superstar vote.

Mary Berry was pipped at the post by Idris Elba who won by just 1 vote in the Homegrown star category.

It was a close run race in the Comedian category also, with Graham Norton taking a quarter of the votes and Catherine Tate a close runner up at 22%.

And finally in the Conversationalist category, Sir David Attenborough smashed it out of the park with almost half of the votes (48%).
