Tonight is the live final to see who will be named the greatest icon of the 20th century.

There will be controversy surrounding the whole thing no doubt, especially as all seven finalists as already voted for by the public are men, but at least there is diversity in other areas among the finalists. The public will have to choose who was the greatest out of Pablo Picasso, Muhammad Ali, Martin Luther King Jr., David Bowie, Alan Turing, Ernest Shackleton and Nelson Mandela.

Icons is on BBC Two at 21.00.
