If you are in the UK, Charlie Booker who is presenting Have I Got News For You on BBC1 has a Sinclair Spectrum on his mantle piece

Splendid fellow! You could see loads of books behind him when he was interviewed on Newsnight, but the resolution wasn't good enough to make them out properly. Wonder if the BASIC manual or Speccy Nation were there.

He had the Spectrum in front of him on the coffee table for his recent Corona Virus Wipe on BBC 2, probably still on Iplayer. He is well known for having very strong links with the Spectrum, and used to write in the UK computing area in the 90s. At least one of his Black Mirror programs, 'Bandersnatch', has a clear link with Spectrum software.
