Now aged 88 and still touring, which comedian crashed his bike aged 7 after being dared by his friends to ride with his eyes closed which resulted in a facial injury which became his trademark?

The only one I know still touring at that age is Ken Dodd - is that how he got those teeth?

I first read about this in the Sunday Times Magazine not long after it happened, and was fascinated by the story and his bravery, so was delighted when Danny Boyle made the film "127 Hours"

He's the guy who went off to a remote area hiking alone and fell into a narrow canyon. A rock fell in after him and pinned his hand and wrist to the wall, trapping him in the canyon. He couldn't move the rock so ended up having to break his own arm by wrenching it against the rock and then cutting his arm off below the elbow. The 127 hours in the film title refers to the length of time he was trapped, however he still had the where with all to cut his arteries last to minimise the blood loss. When he'd done that he had to climb 60 odd feet out of the canyon using his good arm (and presumably in some pain) and then, if the film is accurate, abseil down to the main trail and walk a not inconsiderable distance in scorching heat before being found by some hikers.

Fascinating story, He wrote a book called "Between a rock and a hard place" about his ordeal . I believe he still climbs today.

Hope to god I've got the right guy!

My money's on Queen's Greatest Hits Vol 1 and 2. I know Vol 1 is the biggest selling album of all time in the UK...

WR has it. Their two Greatest Hits albums are at numbers 1 and 10.
For a bonus point, who is the only solo artist with 2 in the top 10?

Tonto, The Beatles only entry is Sgt Pepper at No. 3

That's an interesting question - I would have guessed there were two solo artists with two biggest selling albums. I suppose the answer must be Michael Jackson because both Thriller and Bad were huge - but I'm surprised that Adele's 21 and 25 are not in the Top 10.
