Shelagh, Adele completely wrong.
I will allow you Motzart even though your reasoning is completely wrong.

This pack (Wolf gang) had a test( MOT) on the last (Z) picture (Art) = Wolfgang Motzart.

I think you have all had too long a break from my strange thinking. :twisted:

Bill, can't wait to find out who pop star is...not sure there can be many names left :D
Sorry about lack of reasoning for old Mozart, was just dashing out the door when I spotted extra clues, didn't give myself time to think, entered answers and ran :oops:
Thanks for your help with the reasoning :wink:

Well done Bern :D

Just had a little think about the group question;

No 8. ABBA - reasoning here - A female Before = AB - the measurement in the centre of the backside - B R A measurement = ABBA (best explanation I can give :roll: )

A desparate attempt at #10 LUIS FONSI (Luis and Alfonso were kings on the Iberian Peninsula).
Although I'm wondering if, whilst we're all looking for a name which consists of 2 kings' names we should also be looking for a name which means "got together" .....

The other two are incorrect though.

Well done

before I get off to yet another school sports day I'll have a go a

I thought you'd dismissed James Arthur yesterday Bill????

Shame about the other two..so very difficult :(

Shelagh I'm amazed you didn't see that I'd suggested James Arthur yesterday morning as you did comment on my post :?

Bee..what can I say, so very sorry, I had genuinely forgotten that James Arthur had been suggested and dismissed...I definitely would not have wasted time searching for names, had I known..I think this situation calls for a Stewards Enquiry Bee :shock:
And once again, I sincerely apologise :-(
Have been getting sidetracked by the other stinkers (questions) your correct answer had been overlooked...SOZ our Bee :cry:

No apols needed Shelagh, I did the same with your suggestion of Charles & Eddie for the same one - I was just surprised you'd missed it as you'd actually commented on my post. As you say, it was a waste of time worrating away at other names but at least with that one being straight forward we could think about it while getting on with other stuff. :wink:

Bee, I apologise for missing the James Arthur answer, but when you first posted that reply I was laughing and read it out to my wife. The second half of your posting containing the James Arthur answer was definitely not there on my screen. Did you edit it immediately after posting the first part?. I did read your reply a couple of times because I thought it was very funny, so I don't know how I missed your answer. 'Very Strange' :oops:

Well done anyway, I am just amazed that that one lasted so long.

Sounds confusing Bee.. But a bit similar to Bill, your post at 8:34 am didn't show up on my 8:47am post..bit of a time delay going on in W.K. me thinks :D

Now I'm confused Shelagh, your 8.34 and 8.37 are showing up on my screen as 9.34 and 9.37 - perhaps Britishi Summer Time arrived south of the Mersey earlier than north :lol:
Bill, quite conceivable that I posted second half a minute or two later - I'm forever logging on to post something, then getting distracted posting something else and having to go back to write what I originally intended :( I know I defo posted James Arthur quite quickly after the original as we had an early start for sports day. Anyway; stewards enquiry over, we've a few more to crack. Will defer worrating at them until we return from Liverpool Maritime Festival :D

Not that one either Shelagh, but a good guess.

I think I will have to give some extra clues tomorrow, as everyone seems to be struggling at the moment.

Yes Bern, feeling confident now. Initially only thought lady and bellum fitted thinking that "before" was just an indication of where the "female" should be place. Once I wrote it down the penny dropped. HOO FLIPPIN' RAH!

Congratulations Bee, spot on.

Female = Lady, before= Ante, B (Ell= measurement)UM.

Love that group, they have a distinctive sound. I bought their CD about 8 years ago after seeing them on The Breakfast Show,
The first time they came to the UK.

Bernie, thanks for moving the clues over.

Shelagh, wrong guess I'm afraid.
