    Hiya, and good to read you, lillibet!

    Of course, the cat name fell foul of the censor.

    I don't know either of these two. Hoping for a hunky sportsman again. Mike Philips has just retired from first class rugby, so he's a possibility.

    Not a huge fan of the drawn out preamble and the 'drip feeding' of celebrities - but enjoy it once the series starts properly (I don't count the 'matching up the pairs' show)

    I quite enjoy the speculation, as there seems to be a list of types to tick off:

    BBC person. - Steph from Breakfast would be good.
    An oldie
    A soap actor. Etc

    A number of potentials mentioned in today's papers.

    I'd better hold my fire, though.

    Although one of my first speculations was mentioned.........


    It all feels so autumnal. University Challenge started weeks ago.

    Bit in The Mirror saying that the potentials have been given vice names of cheeses.

    Look out for Gouda, mozzarella and feta. Lee Ryan is Roquefort, apparently.
