Jane Austen is the new face of the precious £10 note. She was said to have ruthlessly beaten off stiff competition to secure her win, including those that I've reimagined below.

But did she deserve to be picked? Are her merits truly greater than that of The Duchess et al?

They're just very fucking cute, no further explanation is necessary tyvm.

She is a national treasure. Imagine her shouting 'Get outta ma pub', then casually tossing a £10 note with her face on it at the offending patron for taxi money.

 

Freddo

Because £10 is roughly the price of one Freddo in this godforsaken day and age.

 

Chris off Love Island

No, I am not bantering. This man deserves the entire world, starting with his cute little face on every £10 note.

 

A brew

Just because.

 

Bryn

Another indisputable national treasure deserves to be immortalised as currency.

 

Churchill

Oh yesssssssss. He will also come in a hologram form where his head will bob up and down.

 

Pret

There's one on every street corner, so why not have one in every pocket as well?

 

 

The Duchess

She's terrifying, so would serve as a sizeable disincentive with regards to spending money.

 

Stavros Flatley

Everyone's favourite father son duo are extremely worthy of such prestigious recognition, they get my vote.
