The Beatles, Mick Jagger, Robbie Williams Considered For New £10 Banknote
The Beatles, Mick Jagger and Robbie Williams are among the names being considered to appear on the new £10 banknote, NME reveals. According to The Mirror, the Bank Of England has released a list of 150 great Britons who have been suggested by members of the public to be the face on one side of the new notes when they are printed. They join a list that includes football star David Beckham, Princess Diana, literacy great William Shakespeare and wartime Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill, who could feature on the new series F notes. Other suggestions include suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst, TV stars John Cleese, Michael Parkinson and Terry Wogan; scientists Stephen Hawking, Sir Alexander Fleming and current favourite WW2 codebreaker Alan Turing, who died aged 41 in 1954 after being prosecuted for being gay. Last month, Robbie Williams scored a chart double as his ninth album 'Take The Crown' and single 'Candy' occupied both Number One spots. The last time he had similar success was back in December 2001 when he had a Number One single with 'Something Stupid', his cover of Carson And Gaile's 1967 track featuring Nicole Kidman, and a Number One album with 'Swing When You'Re Winning'. Last week, The Rolling Stones played the final show of their '50 And Counting' run of gigs at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, where they were joined onstage by Lady Gaga for a rendition of 'Gimme Shelter'. Who would you prefer to appear on the new £10 banknote? Share your ideas in the comments.
