9:00am Sunday 8th September 2013 in News
DUDLEY-born comedian Lenny Henry has been voted the celebrity midlands motorists would most like to take on a road trip.
In a survey by car supermarket Motorpoint, motorists in the West Midlands chose Lenny from a list of regional celebrities which included Richard Hammond, Ozzy Osbourne and Cat Deeley.
Drivers decided the most popular car for the imaginary journey would be an Aston Martin DB5.
The attributes which motorists said put Lenny Henry in pole position were his intelligence, sense of humour and his ability to talk about anything from Shakespeare to Dudley to keep travelling companions amused on long journeys.
