Nobody correctly answered last week's 'Who Am I?' brainteaser. Do you think this week's is easier?

To go in the draw to win a bottle of Helen & Joey Estate Layla Cabernet Merlot, all you have to do is tell me who I am, following the 10 clues I provide. 

Get this right and you could win two gorgeous bottles of red wine.

Every week for 14 weeks  - until December 13, 2017 - a winner is drawn from all of the correct responses.

Nobody correctly guessed last week's Who Am I? The answer was Ella Fitzgerald.

Maybe this week's puzzle will be a little easier. So, here goes ....

Who Am I?
