0-7 – You’ve let yourself down, to be honest. We don’t want to be overly harsh at what is already a difficult time, but sometimes tough love is the answer (but unfortunately for you, not an answer to any of the questions in the quiz…)

8-14 – Adopting a full Liam Gallagher-esque swagger might be a step too far, but you definitely have licence to wear a smug grin after that performance. Loving your work!

15-20 – The cream of the crop! The real deal! We are hugely impressed, slightly alarmed, but mainly impressed. If we had a ceremonial purple anorak to present, we’d be bestowing it upon you right now…
