Here’s how to play: We choose two people in the news this week and ask you to connect them through the six steps.
This week we’ve chosen Sunderland striker Darren Bent, who scored one of the weirest goals in football when a beach ball thrown onto the pitch by a Liverpool fan rolled in front of Reds' goalkeeper Pepe Reina, from where it was struck by Bent - and Pakistani Taliban leader Hakimullah Mehsud, who is being pursued by Pakistani forces in South Waziristan.
You need to come up with five other people between those two for a total of six links.
Leave your submissions in the comments section below, and the team will pick the most creative connection, and we’ll announce the winner on Friday’s show.
