    All well known people this time. (For one reason or another!) Clues are supplied as well as letters per name. Once all solved, the initial letters of their Christian names when un-jumbled, will reveal another celeb rarely out of the news. PM me with your answers, please. Deadline will depend on how many answers I get! ;-)

    p.s. Unless 'former' is included in the clue, you can assume that the person/s concerned are still very active in their profession!

    Bon chance!

    I rather hoped that would be the case, to encourage more people to enter! ;-)

    Well, the easier the better for me! :roll:

    What about one with names of rock/pop bands with an indication of what decade they are in?? Or possibly one with job titles so I can pick a new one from it when it is pointed out to me that anagram solving is not part of the job description!!!!!

    Off topic I know here - but have you had any luck yet finding a band in Scotland?

    Must get back to someone who sent me an email! Thank you for reminding me! Possibility of helping an ex youth band (now re-formed) in Glasgow.

    Cheers and thank you for asking!

    Any chance of deleting the post with the answers on?

    I was going to have a bash at that but now I know the answers! :cry:

    Dave et al

    Really really sorry. Have had a real really bad afternoon :cry: with a certain nasty little problem and then I came on to tMP and found the quiz and thought "oh great a bit of light relief". I had written all the answers into a word file, copied them and in a moment of rush, just as hubby was walking through the door to help solve the afternoons problems, pasted them into "reply" instead of PM. :oops: :oops:

    Truly sorry. :cry: :cry:

    Shame you didn't post the answers for the last username quiz instead - I'm still totaly stuck on 4 of them! :evil: :lol:

    I can't enter this one, as I saw the complete answers when I still had a couple to get :oops:

    At least I'm still ahead of you on the other one, as there were only three I couldn't work out - sent Dave an incomplete response as I'm away over Easter :!:

    Who's Al?

    No worries Dinie. It's a fun quiz! :) (Is there an emoticon for a big hug?)

    In any case, you got 'em all right. As per usual! :wink: :lol:

    Dinnie, if it's any consolation i did exactly the same as you, but luckily i realised what i'd done straight away and deleted it before anyone had chance to notice.
    It's easily done, (especially when you should be working and trying to do it on the sly, if you catch my drift!!!)

    Well done Dave for keeping us all entertained.
