Poll: Britons want to talk to Jesus, Diana
A survey suggests Jesus Christ is the person Britons would most like to communicate with from beyond the grave, closely followed by Princess Di and Shakespeare.
The survey, carried out to promote the third-season release of ITV sci-fi show
Primeval on DVD, found one third of the 3,000 respondents picked Jesus as the dead person they would most like to communicate with, closely followed by Princess Diana, who was killed in a 1997 car crash, and celebrated poet and playwright William Shakespeare.
These results show that Jesus Christ will always be the British Public's 'Superstar,' a spokesman for the DVD release said.
But we were fully expecting Princess Diana to top the poll as she won the hearts of the nation and no-one has ever really forgotten her place within the Royal family or the impact she made on ordinary people.
