With me it's Marti Caine and Marti Webb.

They said on the radio today that Marti Webb would be doing something live and my first thought was "but she'd dead!"

I still laugh when I see Chris Packham on tv because people on here kept getting him confused with Chris Langham - poor CP

Oh dear, yes.

I actually felt sorry for Steve Wright (DJ) when the news was full of Steve Wright (Norfolk prostitute murderer) last year.

Ant or Dec?

UnquietDad · 12/10/2009 15:09

I have no problem telling Ant and Dec apart. But I am always utterly stumped with Dick and Dom.

Really UD? I know they stand in the same positions all the time to avoid confusion, but if they are ever out and not with the other I am totally flumoxed, dh just calls them both "Ant or Dec" after some comic wag called them both that.

I suppose it's because I used to watch Byker Grove.

I always have to mentally pause a second when thinking about Oscar Wilde and Orson Wells.

Couldn't tell you who was in which film...

Bucharest · 12/10/2009 16:00

Had extremely erotic dream last week about David Baddiel.

Then discovered it had been Colin Murray.

Of course those 2 men with the cheese-slicer chins...Rob Bryden? Dryden? (sorry, don't do comedy) and The Other One- Ben Miller?

And after his magnificent imitation on another thread, I simply can't look at UnquietDad any more without Cheryl Cole springing to mind......

BoneYard · 12/10/2009 16:03

And Aton Du Beke looks like the lost triplet Bucharest.

Lulu and Twiggy are one person in my head, I know they are two separate people but the muddle into one sixties botoxed icon !

Matthew Wright and Jezza Kyle

Kirsty Wark and Kirsty Young - I know which one is which, but there is always a split second when I hear their names that I have to think 'Newsnight bird or overpaid channel 5 blonde bird?'
