So and So is "well on the way to being a national treasure" - yawn, what a tedious cliche that is - and what are the criteria for achieving such a status ? and who would you consider awarding such a grand title to ?

Not sure many would consider any of these national treasures and I deffo do not. Several of these are widely considered to be national jokes. TBH I can only think of one or two living people ever referred to NLTs one being David Attenborough.

As the person to whom this label is most frequently attached is Joanna Lumley, I think your definition is spot on.
