A big chance to wipe off five today – five sets of summer clues anyway – as we wrap up the series today. By all means use the forum below to speculate and/or exasperate, and then see if you can detect the seventh word hiding in the initials of your six answers. And how would you clue this mystery word?
Beware, there’s a tricky double meaning in this bunch, plus one gloriously concealed definition. No more hints – get solving. And remember to submit your BEST FIVE CLUES by pumpkin o'clock tonight.
