I would say no - as I know many people who don’t know who their MP is!

I agree with you. I guess it depends on how well they are known by the general public- personally I wouldn't consider them celebrities, however, many might consider prime ministers celebrities because they are better known.

Not intrinsically, but it is a position that lends itself to bringing people into the public eye and can evolve into celebrity status.

Depends what they get involved in. If they are a government/shadow minister then yes, they have some claim to fame. If they are a backbencher and nothing more, then no.

The word celebrity is over-used, and treating the then MP for Henley as one has indirectly led to the deaths of thousands of people.
