Pity the show isn't!  ;)

I don't know whether this 'televisual delight' has made it out your way yet (in which a bunch of so-called celebs are shut in a house and the public gradually vote them out)...what some people do for publicity!

Shame this will be your last AC quiz...they've been very enjoyable!  :)

Well, in that case, "Bread"  :)

But honestly, I put Telly ahead of them because I thought his had been a bigger hit (albeit a sort of novelty one...?)

Bread did it originally, and they had the bigger hit here in the U.S.  I have never heard Telly's version, and honestly I think it's probably better left that way!  ;)

You got that right, young Karen!  ;)

Not much biting on the others, but I'm fairly sure...

#18. 'Can't Stay Away From You' - Gloria Estefan/Miami Sound Machine (delete where applicable depending on what name was being used at the time! :D)

Sorry, that should have read #16...I really should get glasses!  :-[

It was (in Britain at least), where (horror of horrors!) it hit #1... :o
