Celebs and the rev: 25 years of the Vicar of Dibley

28th May 2019

25 years have passed since the Rev. Geraldine Granger first set foot in the sleepy village of Dibley.

Since then, she’s been livening things up with all sorts of hijinks and celebrity guests.

To celebrate her quarter century, we’ve been back through the archives to pick our top five famous visitors to the parish.

1**.** Sting

Swapping your husband for one of the five most handsome men in the world – what could possibly go wrong?

2**.** Darcey Bussell

Leotard: check. Pink tutu: check. Poise, precision and on-point moves: check check check. It’s a ten from us, Geraldine.

3**.** Johnny Depp

When a film crew arrives in Dibley, Geraldine throws an epic celebrity bash. Or does she? Luckily Sarah Ferguson’s on hand to set things straight. Standard.

4**.** Damian Lewis

Hot clergy are so in right now. (We’re looking at you, Fleabag.)

Geraldine was way ahead of the curve though, with the Homeland star playing a man of the cloth.

5**.** Kylie Minogue

It’s party time in the parish and the village show strikes it lucky, lucky, lucky when Kylie steps in at the last minute.
