Who Would You Like To Make Tube Announcements?

tannoyTransport for London has drafted in a host of celebrities to make announcements on public transport for the Royal British Legion's London Poppy Day tomorrow.

Commuters will be able to hear the dulcet tones of Barbara Windsor, Sir Terry Wogan and Joanna Lumley telling us to mind the gap at more than 70 tube stations, all London buses and Network Rail main line stations.London Mayor Boris Johnson has seemingly passed on a further opportunity to annoy passengers with recorded announcements.

There will also be entertainment across the transport network with performances from a variety of bands, buskers and X Factor group Rough Copy to raise money for the Royal British Legion.

Much as we'd have liked to hear Benedict Cumberbatch at Baker Street, we're very much looking forward to being bellowed at by Brian Blessed at Theydon Bois. But who else would you like to hear reminding you to stand clear of the closing doors? We think there's an opportunity here to match up a celeb with a station or line. Michael Caine on the Piccadilly line? The Queen at Victoria? Chris Hemsworth at Charing Cross? Joey Essex at Chigwell? Tell us in the comments box below.
