    For the love of god someone please put me out of my misery. Someone sent round an Excel quiz with famous people as children on that you have to identify and this one is driving me and the wife insane. We have both seen the picture before but can't place the person. Anyone have any ideas?

    Looks a bit like he'd turn into Dirk Benedict or maybe Michael York.

    My first thought was Richard Branson for some reason, but he's probably not old enough.

    That's a great guess. Branson was born in 1950, so a black and white picture is quite viable.

    It's not Prince Edward is it?

    EDIT : Bearing in mind how our faces stretch vertically as we grow into adulthood, this may help.

    It's Sting, aka Gordon Sumner.

    Edit: the jumper he's wearing is yellow and black, which is where he got his nickname from.

    Going by the ear formation and nose, I'd say that Haggard is a good guess.

    I thought he got the nickname 'Sting' because he has a small ahh...'stinger'.

    I love you drlunanerd. You are welcome to come round my house and sleep with my wife, cat, fish, anything that takes your fancy. I can sleep at night now without his face going around in my head. Let's all have a grateful ripple of applause for the wonderful drlunanerd.

    Clap clap clap clap clap.

    Seriously dude - you totally rock!

    Seeing as how you're all so good at this how about the remaining pics that I wasn't so bothered about but would still like to identify:

    pretty sure the last two are Bob Dylan and Bruce Willis, respectively
