Adele, The Beatles and Susan Boyle are among the U.K. stars competing to be named Great Britain's top cultural offering in a new poll.
Queen Elizabeth II, One Direction, the Harry Potter books and Dusty Springfield have also been shortlisted in the Greats of Great Britain survey, which aims to find the public's favourite performers, sites, food and attractions.
Individuals with the highest numbers of votes will have the opportunity to perform at a live The Great Exhibition event later this year (12).
And the competition is stiff - sarcasm, fish and chips, pubs, the Bbc, William Shakespeare, the Union Jack and a cup of tea have all been nominated as the best thing about Britain.
