20 per cent want Diana back from dead

Princess Diana is among the stars British people would most like to bring back from the dead.

The princess – who tragically died in a Paris car crash on August 31st 1997 along with lover Dodi Fayed – joined Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe in the top ten in the survey of 2,000 people by Warner Home Video.

Elvis, who died in 1977 aged 42, came first with 23 per cent of the vote while Diana was second with 20 per cent.

Also in the top ten were British wartime Prime Minister Winston Churchill, England’s soccer World Cup-winning captain Bobby Moore and William Shakespeare.

King Henry VIII, Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, Nobel prize-winning physicist Albert Einstein and Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain completed the list.

The nationwide survey marked the DVD release of hit US TV show Pushing Daisies: Series One, which follows the story of Ned, a young man who can bring people back from the dead with just one touch.
