Jeez, this was the hardest quiz I've ever come across! I wasn't certain of one single question. Most of them I didn't have a clue.
I filled in answers for each question anyway!

I’m short of a couple of answers if anyone fancies pointing me in the right direction:

Neil once held the record for doing something at St. Cuthbert's Grammar School. In fact, he twice successfully defended his record. What was his record for?

Chris once tried to get a £100,000 car in exchange for appearing in a TV ad, but it didn't work out. What company was he talking to about this?
Woof.

Submitted my answers. Turns out there was more than 1 answer I knew. Some I deduced and some I just plainly searched in old Literally issues. The rest was a gamble.

I see Wayne has posted answers and top 10 scorers:

Turns out I was the top scorer! I clearly know too much rubbish. There were a few I got wrong that I was pretty certain on.

I am intrigued by Wayne’s answer to number one - that Neil held his school record for non-stop yo-yoing, at four hours, 27 minutes!!! In all my 33 years as a PSB fan I have never heard such a fact... It seems I am in good company as no-one else got it right either.

Does this ring a bell with anyone else?

Thank you Wayne for this bit of fun which kept me happily occupied for a good few hours.
Woof.

That was a lot of fun and I’m amazed I made the top ten! Kicking myself over a few I got wrong.

Well done Dog for being the top PSB nerd!! I’m pleased with my 2nd place. Like you, I’ve never heard the yo-yo story - most of the others I got wrong rang a bell once the answers were provided

We were 1 answer away from a number one spot. :-)

Definitely had to do some research. But I knew the answer to that one was in the original Annually.

Oh yeah, I think I knew 2 questions without looking it up (Heart and Sammy Davis Jr, of whom Neil said something about in a recent interview iirc). The rest I waded through all my Literallys. That is where I found out that it was Elton John who sent them champainge, and in fact it was a box of it.
