The big fat Coronation Street quiz - with Corrie prize!


Here we go with The Big Fat Corrie Quiz.  Those of us lucky enough to be at the Coronation Street fan convention Corriefest last weekend took the quiz at the Lass O' Gowrie, Manchester.  In fact, our Coronation Street Blog quiz team The Bessie Street Dropouts made up of Flaming Nora, Sunny Jim, Fat Brenda, Dave Dutton, Nicky Beresford and John Beresford won it!

The Quiz was hosted By Giles D. Bastow from Big Fat Quizzes UK, (creators of bespoke Quiz Nights http://www.bigfatquizzes.co.uk/).

Giles hosts The Big Fat Stupid Quiz (a fiendish general knowledge based quiz) every Thursday at The Lass O' Gowrie. You can also follow him on Twitter @Eatmymindquiz

So, here we go with Giles' quiz. See how you do and if you fancy entering it to win the prize of Coronation Street Monopoly (slightly used!) as won by our Coronation Street Blog team at Corriefest, send in your entries with the answers to all of the three rounds to glenda.young@btinternet.com with QUIZ in the subject line.
