Thank you @MI5 and @Cleoriff 

I try to mix the categories each time to give some variety to the quiz.

As @Cleoriff said, there are a couple of questions which I think might need thinking about Thinking

- but the good news is there is no QI-style question to catch anyone out.

The name should read - Rowena Cade not Caden... 

Hope that helps.

I have amended the question in the original post.
