4. In 1982, who had his first solo UK number one with "Goody Two Shoes"?

Answer: Adam Ant

Although Adam and the Ants had hit number one in UK with "Stand And Deliver" and "Prince Charming" (both 1981), "Goody Two Shoes" in 1982 was his first number one after dropping the Ants. Ant, real name Stuart Goddard, struggles with bipolar disorder and works closely with mental health charity SANE on their Black Dog campaign to promote better understanding of mental illness.
5. Which popular 1940s and 1950s comedian had the catchphrase "Hello playmates"?

Answer: Arthur Askey

Askey was also known for the catchphrases, "Before your very eyes" and "I thank you", which was also the title of his 1941 film. In the 1950s, he hosted a TV show called "Before Your Very Eyes", named after his catchphrase but it is "Hello playmates", which he used to great effect in the radio show, "Band Waggon" in the late 1930s for which he is most fondly remembered.

In 1957 Askey released an album of comedic songs also entitled "Hello Playmates".
6. Who recorded hit albums entitled "19" and "21" in 2008 and 2011 respectively?

Answer: Adele Adkins

While "19" did incredibly well for a debut album, selling seven million copies worldwide, her second album, "21" blew those figures away by selling an amazing 31 million. Along the way, she released hit singles such as "Chasing Pavements" (2008), "Rolling In The Deep" (2010), "Someone Like You" (2011) and the James Bond movie theme "Skyfall" (2012).
7. Who succeeded Alfred, Lord Tennyson as Poet Laureate?

Answer: Alfred Austin

Following Tennyson's death in 1892, the position of Poet Laureate remained vacant for four years as candidates were either not suitable or refused the role. Algernon Charles Swinburne was considered, but it was public knowledge that he was an alcoholic who enjoyed sado-masochism, while another candidate, William Morris was a dedicated socialist, so neither were seen as suitable for the ear of the monarch. Austin is probably best remembered today for his poems, "The Season" (1861).
8. Which Italian was Formula 1 World champion in 1952 and 1953?

Answer: Alberto Ascari

Ascari drove for Ferrari and ended the winning streak of Alfa Romeo who had provided the winning car the previous two years for Guiseppe Farina and Juan Manuel Fangio. Ascari's career was a short one as he died while testing at Monza, Italy in 1955.
9. Which renowned English playwright is responsible for works such as "A Bedroom Farce", "Life of Riley" and "A Chorus of Disapproval"?

Answer: Alan Ayckbourn

Ayckbourn is a prolific playwright with over 70 full length productions under his belt, dating back to 1959. His 1985 comedy, "A Chorus Of Disapproval", which was also made into a movie starring Anthony Hopkins, won an Olivier Award.
10. In 1941, which UK police officer became the first person in the world to be treated with injections of penicillin?

Answer: Albert Alexander

In December 1940, Oxfordshire constable Albert Alexander received a scratch on his face from a rose bush. The scratch became infected, leading to abscesses on his face and requiring the removal of one of his eyes. Penicillin injections, had, at this time only been tested on mice and a human subject with a terminal condition was required, and Alexander fit the bill perfectly.

Although Alexander showed immediate improvement after just the first injection, wartime restrictions meant supplies ran out after five days and Alexander suffered a relapse and died on March 15th 1941.
