Quarter of Brits think Churchill was myth, but Sherlock Holmes was real

A recent poll has shown that the British are extremely confused about who was a historical figure and who was fiction.

When historical figures (Churchill) look an awful lot like fictional characters (Holmes) on the TV, it becomes hard to separate fact from fiction.
