From plebgate to plodgate, it's been a odd sort of week.

The frosty weather has turned distinctly soggy and hopes of a white Christmas are slowly melting away.

It's not all bad news though. We're still here! The apocalypse predictions turned out to be a load of baloney (who would've thought?)

It's Friday afternoon and whether you're recovering from a hangover or wiling away the final hours at the office, it's an ideal time to test your knowledge on Huff Post UK's news quiz!
