Hi everyone,

I went to a fete this afternoon and picked up the local quiz - 100 famous couples eg Adam & Eve, Barbie & Ken. I have completed 89 and am stuck on the other 11. Having googled to get inspiration, and failing, I am now turning to you wonderful and clever people. They are all in alphabetical order.

9 Colonel's carer plus Christmas bird (the answer falls between Barney & Betty Rubble and Bill & Ben) Turkey ?

13 America's Jimmy followed by delicate frills (Butch & Sundance and Cain & Abel)

28 He was her third, she was number eight's first (Echo & Narcissus and Flanagan & Allen) Catherine ?

39 Twickenham Stoops Rugby team plus wayside flower (Hansel & Gretel and Hillary & Tenzing)

51 Two hard-backed insects collaborate in song (Laurel & Hardy and Learner & Lowe)

55 Well thet would say that wouldn't they (Margaret & Dennis Thatcher and Marks & Spencer)

62 Victory's captain and Emma (Napoleon & Josephine and Paris & Helen)

64 Did he work his magic on this lovely lady (Paris & Helen and Phillip & Fern)

69 Did she ring his bell? (Pyramus & Thisbe and Randall & Hopkirk)

93 This poor boy replaces the king's son (Tarzan & Jane and ?) The prince and the pauper?

94 O'Sullivan & Kray, or Reagan & Hilton ( ? and Torvill & Dean)

99 They graduated from bicycles to airplanes (Wayne & Waynetta and Yogi & booboo)

Many thanks for any help.

Thank you all, I will be awarding stars - as soon as I stop kicking myself !

Batman & Robin - a real turkey (that's me btw) doh
Q 28,

Could it be Catherine of Aragon
Question Author
Thanks Chestnut, I think that it must be ? and Cathy or ? and Catherine but the ? must start with either E or F to fit in.
28. Edward VIII & Mrs Simpson
55. Mandy Rice-Davies & Christine Keeler ? Is Margaret Thatcher definitely correct?
93. I think you're right and the answer has to be The Prince and the Pauper, as Tom Canty & Prince Edward (son of Henry VIII) would not fit alphabetically'
& then
94. The Two Ronnies
51. Lennon & McCartney (2 of the Beatles / beetles = hard-backed insects ) ?
54. Of course, if you call her Maggie Thatcher then it fits ....

Kettledrum you are a star * * * * *

I was puzzling over MANdy and MARgaret, so MAGgie it is then.

Edward V111 - the kicking bruise is getting bigger - just never occured to me.

I am going with the Prince and the Pauper. Especially as the two ronnies seems to be an answer.

Many thanks to all once again.

Is it possible to get hold of a copy of this quiz?
