IF you were staging your fantasy dinner party who would your guests be?

For the purposes of this question the only rules we’re going to set are your chosen diners must be alive now (no historical figures) and excluding yourself you must choose between two and 10 guests to have along for the night.

Beyond these criteria you can have whoever you like, no matter how famous they are or how unlikely it is you’ll ever meet them in real life.

What combination of guests would you go for? Who would inject humour and fun into the evening? Who would start the interesting conversations? Who would have the best stories to tell? Who might provide a bit of mystery and intrigue?
