Alan Turing to appear on new £50 note

Just for laughs, they should wait until the note is 6-12 months in circulation, and then quiz the public on who 'that dude' is & what he is famous for... :) But it'll be a while before you can get your hands on one:
The new polymer £50 note is expected to enter circulation by the end of 2021.
