    As it's a new year, I thought I would do a quiz to contribute to welcoming everyone to 2019 on Soapchat.

    Each of the following 10 photos is a clue to one of 10 characters from the 6 main American 80s prime time soap operas (Dallas, Falcon Crest, Dynasty, Knots Landing, Flamingo Road and The Colbys). Can you guess who they are?

    Some clues are more obvious than others and I don't expect everyone to guess every character correctly, but who knows? Additional marks for fully identifying how the clues lead to the names of the characters.

    This quiz is just for fun so post your answers below, even if you think you only know one of them.

    Answers will be given next week.

    Number 7 is Sue Ellen (lol) and 10 I think is Michael Channing. The others seem to be a lot harder to guess!!

    Number 10 is, if I am allowed to express my thoughts, Douglas Channing. Signed, Miss Piggy.

    I'll give a clue because it's a difficult one. The second name is the location of the training ground in the photograph which belongs to the club whose logo can be seen in the photograph.

    This is unfair! You are using local things to give clues...What about the rest of us mortals?

    Google is your friend so nothing is truly local these days.

    I tried to mix some easy ones with some more challenging ones.

    #10 can be either Michael Channing OR Douglas Channing, I guess, but if you're going to be uniform (first names only, or last names only, not a mixture) then Michael Channing is likely the correct answer.
