I'm stuck on the same ones... and a couple more!
tv 48 - I found the same, no mention of an actress
music 10 - is it Nelly Furtado? I also need no.7
Music 42. King
Music 10- yes, i suggested Nelly Furtado as my first thought when I saw it but I can't find any pictures like it on Google images. I also suggested a younger Jessie J but it's a long-shot
Someone did hint it was something to do with S Club Juniors- the only one I know is Frankie Bridge as she's now called, but it doesn't really look like her

Question Author
yes I saw that trev if I find it i'll give you a shout.
got to take the wife out for lunch its nearly at the stage its that quiz or me
and she went mad when I tried to put it off till tomorrow when the quiz had gone in.
Problem is, as in previous years with this quiz, it could be the questions are wrong and after numerous hours of searching the question becomes VOID

Interesting to see rule 7

7.The winner is the person who has the most correct answers in the opinion of the quizmaster and the editor. In the case of a tie, lots will be drawn.

So if in their opinion 2+2 = 5 then 5 is the correct answer

As a protest I suggest no one submits an entry, that'll teach them!!!!!

Hee hee
Tom, have you always been such a bad hat :)
#dr pop - thank you I think, lol
haha - Tom - yes, it's very frustrating when the questions are wrong!

music 49 - saw that about band aid, but as far as I can tell M just turned up and sang anyway, was not replaced?

music 10 - can't see sinead

thanks for music7 - knew the face was familiar!
Question Author
no problem happy to help.
we'll keep looking
I'm about ready to call it a day. Less than 2 hours to find answers I've already been looking for for three weeks? Not gonna happen!

Anyway, pictures I'm still looking for are:
TV 4, 7, Lit 8, GK 8 (Winnie?), NE 2,10, Music 10 (Nelly?), Sport 1

sport 49 and 50 are nagging at me, sure I've seen/heard the questions before. Maybe on a tv quiz show.

Good luck everyone!
