In preparation for the next series of Who Do You Think You Are? (due for screening at the end of July), the BBC have announced the line up of celebrities appearing on the programme.
This gives me the chance to play the game "Who Do I Think They Are?". The rules are simple, take on genealogy blogger and one list of celebrities and see if the genealogy blogger has heard of any of the celebrities.
For those of you playing along at home here is the list of celebrities:
- Bruce Forsyth
- Rupert Everett
- Monty Don
- Jason Donovan
- Rupert Penry-Jones
- Dervla Kirwan
- Alan Cumming
- Alexander Armstrong
- Hugh Quarshie (according to Wikipedia)
I’m afraid I didn’t do very well. I have heard of five out of nine of the celebrities (Bruce Forsyth, Monty Don, Jason Donovan, Dervla Kirwan and Alan Cumming) but that probably says more about my celebrity knowledge than the fame or celebrity status of any of the celebrities.
