    It might be a good idea to define celebrity for this, might it not?

    For real entertainment and the look on Seb Coes face when it happens it should be Steve Ovett!

    Nah should be Redgrave. Might be Pinsett though.

    Surely it’ll be that little dude from EDF energy after all he’s well equipped as a flame 😀

    Love the idea that a sports person must fade away into obscurity having given everything to get where they are. Trying and make some money for them and their families is considered poor form.

    Chris Hoy did ads, still a great sports man
    Brad will do loads does it remove his achievements?

    Plenty to choose from
    Regrave, Tammy Gray Thompson, Coe??, Daily Thompson, Cycling Team GB.

    The only thing that David Beckham should have to do with it is as kindling.

    Ken Dodd with a flaming tickling stick

    Gazza

    . . .carried in 5 bellies arms . . .

    800m staircase from track to flame – enter Coe and Ovett. The final showdown. Both have torches – first to the top lights the flame. Go Ovett!!

    But more likely – Bannister, Redgrave or Thompson with the latter turning up incorrectly dressed as per normal!

    “Bannister never won a medal at the olympics but the sub 4 minute gives him some Kudos”

    Some Kudos !?!… more like Britain’s greatest sportsman.

    Should be him.

    I’d like something original such as the participation of the entire stadium.

    By creating an electrical charge by rubbing their arses frantically on specially designed static charge generators, commonly known as plastic seats, 80 thousand people, minus the corpirates as they have already done so much to make the games what they are today (and for which , we shall remain eternally grateful. Amen) power a 50ft high Mechanical Steve Ovett, which raises it’s arm in a flaming one fingered salute to lord Seb.

    Either that or the blind archer routine, provided they don’t miss the torch 8)

    Edit: Doh. Sausage fingers on android phone. That should read corporate, but as it looks so right-on, I’ll leave it be.

    Personally I would be most pleased if the stooges from TOWIE lit it ,only after they had been doused in paraffin first!
    Now that I would pay to watch.

    Well, they are keeping it within the celebrity circle …

    The really worrying thing thinking about that is that they were refusing to comment on whether or not it was an Olympian, as supposedly that would give the game away. Now if they said it was an Olympian that wouldn’t narrow it down very much…

    Somebody who can prove has paid all the due taxes at the appropriate rate and not got anything offshore. Well that’ll be most of the celebs mentioned out then.

    Like I said, Liz.

    Why bother with the upkeep of a ceremonial family, and then not use them for ceremonies?

    Really, Beckham, what a travesty.

    Any of the “Windsor PLC” bunch, but not Beckham!!

    Can see it now, he will kick a burning football into the heart of the burning thing.

    I still think it should be Ben Parkinson
