Clue 11d is \"SCOTTISH COMEDIAN\"
I have T***E*E
or C***E*E

Judging by the Forum info-exchange, I seem to be the only one doing this crossword! This last clue is \" doin\' my \'ead in \" as they say (in all the top places).
Help! Chris.

Chris,

There is one other posting re this xword but they asked for the same thing, amongst others, and I have seen no reply as yet for the comedian part. I will sleep on it and look again for you in the morning. Dont fret there are lots of clever people in this forum! (Come on you lot!).

Royston

I know it doesn't quite fit your letters, but the best I can come up with is Ronnie Corbett

Thanks Royston & Mike.
Have stared long and hard at CORBETT and CONNOLY and could not square the circle, so to speak.

However, during another STINT (yes, that's STINT!!)looking at it - a Eureka moment!

26a is not SNIPE, It's STINT (a small wading bird) - which would, of course, give CORBETT for 11d.
Must now plan how to spend the £500. Good luck to all. Hope my trials and tribulations might have helped. Chris.
