It's the ultimate accolade to be voted the Greatest Living Briton.

Now Sun readers are exclusively invited to choose the shortlist in the first-ever nationwide hunt to find the best England has to offer.

Fifty finalists, including Elton, have been put forward in the Marks & Spencer-sponsored poll.

Now the paper is asking the public to whittle that list down to five.

The overall winner will be chosen in a live vote on a star-studded ITV1 show on Monday, May 21.

Details of the finalists are listed in alphabetical order at

Meanwhile, Elton is considered tops in another compilation: The Pink List, which recognises openly gay successful individuals.

He's in third place, and the results can be viewed at
