Did the celebrity guest star in Modern Family? TV quiz

From 2009 to 2020, ‘Modern Family’ defined a new era of family sitcoms – in short, it quickly became a classic, and it’s still well-loved today. The show depicted the unique dynamics of an extended, diverse family living in suburban Los Angeles, usually with hilarious consequences. This wonderfully modern family was made up of Jay Pritchett (Ed O’Neill), his young wife Gloria (Sofia Vergara) and her son Manny (Rico Rodriguez), Jay’s daughter Claire Dunphy (Julie Bowen), her husband Phil (Ty Burrell) and their three children, as well as Jay’s son Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson), Mitchell’s husband Cam (Eric Stonestreet) and their adopted daughter.

However, there were far more people involved in the decade-long story, as the sitcom regularly featured a variety of guest stars, enhancing the show’s breadth and adding an extra dimension of humour and charm to the series. It was always a treat when celebrities popped up in the show over the years – some staying longer than others, but all bringing a little extra magic to the programme.
