    This has been on a lot of news sites but I can't see any mention of it on BHW - Google have added a "six degrees of Kevin Bacon" function into their search results. Just Google "Bacon Number [celeb name]" to find out their "bacon number".

    Pretty addictive trying to get as high a "bacon number" as possible, I haven't been able to get higher than a 4.

    I haven't found one higher than 2. Who did you find with a 4?

    I've forgotten now, but the trick is to find people who have appeared in films but aren't film stars. Venus Williams, for example, is a 5 (not my find, one of my mates got that one)
