If you had to protect someone famous and lie for them after they had accidentally murdered their partner, who would it be?

...and who, if you could, would you pin it on?

This is not an opportunity to claim the moral high ground and say you would never condone harming even a fly, we know you wouldn`t (except you, scares. I saw you swat a big bad bluebottle at Harrogate), it`s just hypothetical. If it helps, the dead partner was a cheating, violent, puppy slaying, snot on your curtains, Burnley worshipping bitch/bastard.

I would protect the Queen and pin it on this bloody drunken French git who nearly ran me over once on a day trip to Calais in 1997.

I would protect Robbie Keane and blame it on the stupid woman whose nose I broke on Boxing Day after she tried to attack me.

I would protect Robbie Williams and pin it on a woman in our office, who is a nasty piece of work.

Oh, and once Robbie had completed his mourning, he would be so grateful that he'd marry me!

Ok, like it, but my sarky example may have confuddled. So could we blame it on someone famous too/instead!?
 I shall actually protect Kate Middleton (honest, she makes my wizzle sizzle) and  hang the blame on Steven Gerrard. Let's see him buy his way out of that one.

I would protect Julia Roberts and blame it on Kiefer Sutherland so we would not have to suffer any more 24.

I'd protect Penelope Cruz because, even though she's just had a baby, I still feel I may be in with a chance. I'd blame Margaret Thatcher if Jayne hadn't beaten me to it. Instead I'll opt for her spiritual progeny - Edwina Currie. I only have to get a glimpse of her smug mush on TV or hear her grating self-satisfied voice and I want to hurl projectiles at the screen. I even find the way she bats her eyelids and her hair annoying.

I think Mary may well pin it on Walsall F.C after today

Like your thinking Smudge!

For long term satisfaction, I'd pin it on Gary Linekar - would love to see that smug grin wiped off his face.

I would protect Mezghan Hussainey and blame it all on Simon Cowell. Yes, that would mean he committed suicide, but hey look on the bright side, Simon Cowell would be dead. Music fans would rejoice.

I'm loving this thread and you know, I wouldn't protect any of them, I'd send 'em all down Wink
If I have to choose I'd protect David Cameron's wife (whatever she's called), and pin it on Clegg as they're my least favourite people in the world right now

Oh dear. A few I would happily perjure myself to protect but a lot that I would happily pin it on.

If I had to choose just one pairing though it would be that I would protect Johnny Depp and pin it on Michael Winner.  (Calm down, dears - it's just hypothetical!!)  T xx
