    An experimental quiz. I don't know whether there will be any take up, but here goes.

    Rules

    Three clues, the answer to which is the same surname Could be a person of the same name, a trade, a place, an animal ...it's up to you.

    Winner stays on......

    I'll go first

    1. Premier name in soft furnishings and fabrics.

    2. Javelin thrower extraordinaire

    3.

    I cheated

    I had to check the Juventus player - but if Lianne and Tessa are the answers to Q3 and Q2 it is SANDERSON.

    Duh - so much for cheating and taking too long to post!

    (A few years ago I spent many a miserable Saturday morning being forced by herself to look through Sanderson - and other - wallpaper catalogues.)

    Rick Stein has a f&c restaurant in Falmouth and the Luton Town footballer (who also played for England) was BRIAN Stein.

    So.....good effort!

    I'm guessing at 2, but maybe Cruise? That said, all Nugent did was moan about it, so maybe he doesn't really like them :shrug2:

    Well done. Tom was number 1. I was going to say it's a missile for 2 but thought that would be too easy. A bit unfair for 3 maybe as you would have to have read the board a while, but yes his famous Cruise.
