Top 5 Celebrities To Help Rebuild a Shattered Worldby Tom Easton
1) Bear Grylls
Obvs. Bear Grylls has a proven track record of surviving in deserts, on oceans, through blizzards and ratings slumps. Whatever hell this planet can throw at him, he just swallows, chews and spits it back out again. Unless it's edible, in which case he doesn't do the spitting bit.
Strengths – knows where to find food, whether it's in the New Forest, at the top of Mt Snowdon, or in the harrowing wilds of Staines Retail Park.
Weaknesses – Tends to refer to fellow survivors as 'the camera crew'. Insists on serving up meals of grubs and cat intestines even when tinned beans are available at nearby Morrisons.
2) Lady Gaga
Perhaps not the obvious choice, but Lady Gaga is adaptable and open to new ideas. She's young, fit and knows how to get what she wants. Likes it rough.
Strengths – Great make-up tips for hiding those hideous boils, scars and weeping sores. Plus, if you run out of food, you can always eat her meat dress.
Weaknesses – Inappropriate footwear. Possibly too thin to survive first winter.
3) Stephen Fry
The oldest of the group, Fry is a must-have for his wisdom, his intelligence and his mostly unflappable attitude. Because of Twitter, Fry is already used to having plenty of half-crazed followers.
Strengths – Knows everything in the world. Potential leader of future global government. Weaknesses – Technophile who may find it difficult to adapt to a world without Apple. May not be much help re-populating the planet.
4) John Terry
A controversial choice. Terry is nonetheless a fighter and a survivor. He's used to horrific, blood-soaked catastrophes, having been a member of two England World Cup Campaigns.
Strengths – Never gives up, even when the ball has crossed the line, even when he's 2-nil down with 5 minutes to play, even when the girl he wants is happily married to a team mate.
Weaknesses – Not entirely trustworthy.
5) Tom Cruise
Star of the 2005 remake of War of the Worlds as well as dozens of other excellent films, Tom Cruise is a guy you'd want standing by you, presumably on a box, in the event of alien invasion, or other global catastrophe.
Strengths – Scientology background useful when talking to Alien Supreme Beings. Highly professional. Great hair.
Weaknesses – Really weird bloke. Cruise-Gaga dynamic extremely unpredictable.
