If you'd like me to fire a rocket up them, or a shoddy business, I'm listening! You can email me here.


In this third instalment, I provide 10 clues to a celebrity at the peak of their fame. Guess right and you could win a a bottle of Helen & Joey Estate Layla Cabernet Merlot.

Each week for 12 weeks, I will be giving away a bottle of Helen & Joey Estate Layla Cabernet Merlot. At the close of business each week - until Friday December 01. 2017 - I will draw a winner.

All you have to do is tell me WHO I AM! Every correct response will go in the draw to win a bottle of this excellent wine.

Each week I will give you 10 clues upon which to base your answer. Each of the 12 people I describe will have been at the peak of their fame between 1960 and 1990.

Please email your responses to me here, rather than leaving them in the comments, to avoid spoiling it for others.

Last week's winner was John Lannen from East Maitland in NSW, who correctly answered comedian Jerry Lewis. Congratulations John, your prize will soon be on its way!
