Out of the blue my leaders of the plaque.

Byline: POLLY HUDSON

A journey of a thousand miles is made up of single steps.

And so, it's great news that English Heritage have announced only 14% of the Blue Plaques in London - marking the spot where someone of note lived - honour women.

Better still, they're not boasting about this. They want to change it. And so, they're asking for suggestions. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

Kathy Burke

Unarguably a national institution, and one who is unapologetically herself, come what may. Wouldn't give a toss about having a Blue Plaque, which is exactly why she should have one. Or two, actually, if that's an option.

Olivia Attwood from Love Island

Because there will never be a better phrase for staying with a man you shouldn't just because things are good physically than "Trapped in the d**ksand."

Emily Maitliss

For that Brexit eyeroll - the voice pupils of a nation.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge

Could there be a more unnecessary sentence imaginable than one explaining why Phoebe Waller-Bridge should be celebrated?

Susanna Reid

The perfect model of patience and restraint. Better put her plaque low down though, so it will be easy to remove if she does kill Piers Morgan.

Geri Halliwell

Endlessly entertaining - and sometimes even intentionally. Sharon Horgan For being funny, clever and hardworking, for championing other women but mainly because without her, we might never have seen Rob Delaney's bum.

Stacey Solomon

Her insistence on showing how real she is has become a bit of a schtick for attention but she's pretty much a lone iceberg in a filtered Instagram sea of perfection, so must be commended. The plaque could read, "Stacey e, if she prefers.

Solomon: Better than nothing." Or, you know, something else, Beyonce Yes, OK, strictly speaking not British, but come on, it's Beyonce.

Gemma Collins

Either because you love her, or because she's proof that even someone with zero talent can have surprisingly enduring success, or because you think being that big a diva with the aforementioned zero talent shows inspiring self-confidence, or because it was funny when she fell over on Dancing On Ice.

Rita from Corrie

Reassuring that she's just always there. When she er can't be there any longer, they'll have to get her stuffed, so she still can be, otherwise it will probably lead to the end of civilisation as we know it.

Theresa May

Lol. Not really.
