Robbie Williams makes it into the top 5 Great Brits list
THE nation is about to decide who among us is the Greatest Living Briton. Over the last week, Sun readers have been voting in their thousands for their heroes and heroines via phone and internet.
Now the polls have closed — and the votes of our readers have been used to whittle down an original list of 50 candidates to just five remarkable finalists.

The outstanding individuals on the shortlist chosen by you will now go forward to a glitzy grand final to be screened on ITV1 on Monday, May 21.

The winner will represent just one of the categories in the Greatest Briton 2007 event, backed by The Sun.

The star-studded show, sponsored by Marks & Spencer, will be fronted by stunning X Factor babe Kate Thornton.

It will also feature a string of other categories including Film, Television, the Arts, Business, Sport, Social Responsibility and Fashion.
Each day next week, in the run-up to the grand final, we will print an appeal by a fan of each of the final Greatest Living Briton candidates.
Here we reveal the final five Britons who will be battling it out live on telly for the top honour.

Julie Andrews
THE 71-year-old actress has won Oscar, Bafta, Grammy and Emmy awards during a screen and stage career spanning more than 50 years.
Dame Julie has also won an army of admirers as a singer and author.
She first found fame in Broadway musicals such as My Fair Lady and Camelot but won a place in the hearts of movie-goers around the world thanks to musical films such as Mary Poppins (1964) and The Sound Of Music (1965).
In 2000 she was made a Dame in the New Year’s Honours list.

Paul McCartney
BEATLES legend Sir Paul gained worldwide fame by writing and singing the most popular rock and pop music in history with his equally legendary songwriting partner John Lennon.
After The Beatles broke up in 1970, McCartney carved a successful solo career and has since taken part in a string of projects supporting international charities.
Sir Paul, 64, is listed by Guinness World Records as pop’s most successful musician and composer, with 60 gold discs and sales of 100million singles.
His song Yesterday has been played an amazing seven million times on US TV and radio alone.
In 1965 he was awarded an MBE and in 1997 he was knighted.

The Queen
NOW 81, Her Majesty has led the nation during a 55-year reign with dignity and composure.
The monarch is queen of 16 sovereign states as well as head of the Commonwealth and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces.
She is a tireless supporter of many charities.

Margaret Thatcher
THE former Prime Minister, famously dubbed the Iron Lady, is credited with transforming Britain from a run-down, strike-hit, sick man of Europe, to an economic superpower during her record-breaking premiership from 1979 to 1990.
In 1992 she was made a Baroness and elevated to the House of Lords.
Now 81, Britain’s first — and so far only — woman PM, carried out a string of tough economic reforms during her Tory administration and led Britain to victory over Argentina in the Falklands War of 1982.

Robbie Williams
THE former Take That star has won 15 Brit awards and has been nominated for Grammys for his music videos.
His career kicked off in 1990 with boy band Take That, which he left in 1995 after they had sold 25million records.
Since then, 33-year-old Robbie has sold more albums in Britain than any other solo artist.
The self-made star is still the best-selling male artist in the world, with album sales of more than 53million.
He is a tireless worker on behalf of charities, both in his home town of Stoke and around the world.
