Wow, thread 4! Thanks for the heads up @finallychangedmyusername

Sorry I've been quiet, life stress has reached a new peak, but this may be just the antidote smile

LadyGAgain Fri 03-May-19 23:51:55

Louise!! Brilliant clues and well done. I also agree that this is the space to free your head ... and muddle your brain!

@IslaMann - do you have a new clue!

IslaMann Fri 10-May-19 14:28:25

Sorry, totally missed this! Erm, I'll be back soon with my clue, let me have a think!

IslaMann Fri 10-May-19 14:40:01

This defrosted daughter of a king, needs priestly intervention.

finallychangedmyusername Fri 10-May-19 15:03:42

Welcome back to the thread @IslaMann!

I'm going to guess... Cordelia?

Nope, not Elsa finally

finallychangedmyusername Sat 11-May-19 20:13:16

Hmmmm... Tallulah?
The name means leaping water, Talluah Willis is Bruce Willis's daughter and I guess has arguably the King of Christmas movies... I've never seen Bugsy Malone, but maybe Tallulah in Bugsy Malone required priestly intervention?

(Possibly clutching at straws. A LOT.)
