Rio Ferdinand got the ball rolling last week by answering "C'est la vie" to the first question he was asked, before dissolving into fits of laughter.

Meanwhile, Tony Adams was pressing his claims by getting four Beatles songs into one chat - Get Back, Something, Let It Be and With A Little Help From My Friends.
