Gold viewers voted to create a shortlist of their favourite all-time comedians. They are titans of comedy, their names becoming a by-word for joy and laughter.

But, who made the cut? And when it comes to the crunch, who is the best of the best? A jury of comedy experts crown the nation's top funny person as: Britain's Greatest Comedian.

With a rich history of comedy legends such as Tommy Cooper, Bob Monkhouse, Victoria Wood, Eric Morecambe, Dawn French, Peter Kay and many, many more, the battle for the number one spot is going to be fierce.

Gold's jury consists of Roy Hudd, Sally Phillips, Stephen Mangan, John Thomson, Darren Harriott, Ronni Ancona, David Quantick, Boyd Hilton and Nina Wadia.
