a boundary in cricket is afour + 1 run = 5

therefore five .....

The only group I can think of is five star

though I can't see how star can be correct

They put an asterisk beside the batsman on strike on tv, eg:

Strauss 5*

so Five Star is spot on!

Thought this one would be easy, it looks fairly straightforward, but I can't solve it!

Working off the basis that New Orleans must be NO in the middle of the band name somewhere, I've tried prefixing it with Young, Junior, Kid, Boy, Girl, Child etc......or juvenile as in puerile, stupid, etc......but nothing's coming!

Was also assuming 'mad' is an anagram indicator and 'chocolates' or more likely a synonym of chocolates, eg: mars, chocs etc the fodder........
