Take the Coronation Street Mastermind challenge

This week on the BBC's Celebrity Mastermind, John Humphrys put the questions to a panel including 6Music presenter Chris Hawkins

Chris answered questions on his specialist subject which was Coronation Street from 2005.

His chosen charity was The Christie hospital in Manchester.  You can follow Chris on twitter at @ChrisHawkinsUK

Chris did a sterling job and scored 10 out of 11.  But could you do better?  
Here's the link to the iPlayer where you can watch the programme - Chris comes on first with his Corrie questions.  

And for those outside of the UK who can't view the iPlayer, here's the list of questions.  You'll find the answers here.  Good luck and let us know how you do!

Actually, while I could picture everyone involved, my mind went blank on many names. I can't imagine the additional pressure of television. I think he did really well!!
