I'll let some other guesses roll in before I say what's right and what isn't. By the way some of your numbering has gone awry, Col.

Yep. I'm amazed nobody has suggested Lesley Joseph for number 10. It's not her, but still...

OK, we've got most of them now. Here are the answers, but for the two outstanding (and I mean that in so many ways) ones:

1. Come on guys, it's so obvious! Just think of that chap who's always got his finger in his nose!
2. Billie Piper (I love the way she's just used an old family snapshot)
3. Ian 'Lovejoy' McShane
4. Peter Andre (well done Amarie!)
5. Neil Diamond (yelling drunkenly at passersby, apparently)
6. Sean Bean (how did you all get that?! He's nothing like him!)
7. I love the suggestion of Bill Giles, but no...
8. Simon Cowell (and how did you all get that as well - he doesn't even have the black T-shirt and high-waisted trousers on!)
9. Harvey Keitel (well done ono - I didn't think anyone would get that!)
10. Joan Collins (believe it or not, though I love the suggestion of Angie Watts)
Bonus: Sharon Osbourne

So two to go. And here's another one that made me laugh:
