Diary:



TV viewers couldn't help but be impressed by last week's SuperScrimpers Christmas episode, where a family fed the five thousand for 50p (actually eight people for £50 - ed).

Inspired, I've come up with a good old fashioned festive knees-up that is completely FREE and will be attended by world-class CELEBRITIES! Click here to see the answers.

So, here it is, LondonNet's Spot the Celebrity Knee Quiz 2011:

1. These knees belong to a singer who proved she's in charge of her brand.
2. This feline knee-owner enjoys an on-off relationship with a racy boyfriend.
3. Two knees that factored-in plenty of wasted transatlantic travel in 2011.
4. The narco-cops have been chasing this freckled knee's guardian all year long.
5. This knee found it hard to keep up with its owner's marriage plans.
6. The fictional owner of this knee is soon to leave her cobbled northern hometown to find fame in that-there London.
7. Here, we catch sight of a mega knee in mid-bend, as it transforms.
8. Just a glimpse of this knee, which belongs to a personage more famous for another, curvier body part.

How did you do?

6-8 - Two lumps, please, you're the bees' knees.
5-6 - No kneed to worry.
3-4 - Bruised kneego.
1-2 - Severe anterior-cruciate damage.
