Even if you don't know much about football have a guess at no. 13 and ask your blokes too! Dp came with me for the first time to the quiz and neither he or the other football fans there got it right. We were given the clue "he's not English" and my guess was right but I didn't write it down as I foolishly deferred to the men!

Just one of these days I'll get in before bk, who always seems to know the same ones as me, drat!!
But: 12 is Sissy Spacek, because the little moppet is currently making her West End debut in Our Youth, I believe.
And 11 is that hopeless series with Dawn French - Out West or something.
