But who will be Top Class?

0:00:230:00:25

Hello, and welcome to the Top Class Christmas special,

0:00:400:00:44

the search for the UK's smartest celebrities.

0:00:440:00:47

Let's meet our teams.

0:00:470:00:49

First up, it's the Puddings.

0:00:490:00:51

Johnny, you're a comedian.

0:00:510:00:52

What subjects were you good at at school, Johnny?

0:00:520:00:55

I liked a bit of drama cos we could take our shoes off,

0:00:550:00:57

and my feet stink, so I loved it.

0:00:570:01:01

Could you keep your shoes on for the show, if that's OK?

0:01:010:01:04

I'll put them back on if you want.

0:01:040:01:06

Just so that Rachel doesn't feel slightly sick.

0:01:060:01:08

They do smell a little bit.

0:01:080:01:10

Rachel, we're used to seeing you on Match Of The Day Kickabout.

0:01:100:01:13

Apart from football,

0:01:130:01:15

what subjects do you want to come up on Top Class today?

0:01:150:01:18

Football.

0:01:180:01:20

Right. Lauren, you're the captain of the Puddings.

0:01:200:01:23

-Apparently, yes.

-Apparently.

0:01:230:01:24

-Who nominated me for that?

-I don't know, but you're there now.

0:01:240:01:28

-Have we got a picture of Lauren?

-No!

0:01:280:01:30

SHE SQUEALS

0:01:300:01:32

That is cute, that. That is so cute!

0:01:320:01:34

Can I ask you, what the occasion was, Lauren?

0:01:340:01:37

It was dress up as a mouse day!

0:01:370:01:39

It's something we did regularly at my school.

0:01:390:01:41

Just - hey, come in as your favourite mouse?

0:01:410:01:43

And you're like, yeah!

0:01:430:01:45

Tallulah, your character Lauren can be quite negative.

0:01:450:01:49

Are you going to be positive about Top Class today?

0:01:490:01:51

-Yes!

-Yes, that sounded great!

0:01:510:01:54

Yes, positive!

0:01:540:01:56

-Positive!

-Yes!

-Well, best of luck. Please give it up for the Puddings!

0:01:560:01:59

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:01:590:02:02

And playing against them are the Jingle Bells.

0:02:040:02:08

Alex, we know you from all over the workplace.

0:02:080:02:10

Are you going to work hard to win today?

0:02:100:02:12

I've been studying hard for weeks.

0:02:120:02:16

-Have you?

-Well, not... Not really.

0:02:160:02:19

Ed, now, hang on a second,

0:02:190:02:21

I wonder if we've got a picture of Ed

0:02:210:02:23

that we might be able to have a look at.

0:02:230:02:25

Oh, my goodness!

0:02:250:02:27

-Which one's Ed?

-Oh, I've got it.

-Which one are you, Ed?

0:02:270:02:30

Just the coolest one, on the end, there.

0:02:300:02:33

As you can see, we were the coolest gang in school.

0:02:330:02:36

You probably were, weren't you?

0:02:360:02:38

Naomi, welcome. You're the captain.

0:02:380:02:40

Do you know what? The vibe coming from over there

0:02:400:02:43

is of a very competitive team.

0:02:430:02:45

And I think we like to pretend we are not competitive,

0:02:450:02:48

but deep down we are.

0:02:480:02:49

Do you know what I like?

0:02:490:02:51

While you're speaking, Tallulah is just staring you down.

0:02:510:02:55

Finally, Barney,...

0:02:550:02:56

-Hello.

-You get to do loads of cool stuff on Blue Peter.

0:02:560:02:59

Have you got the nerve for Top Class?

0:02:590:03:01

-No.

-Great.

0:03:010:03:02

So, what subjects would you like to come up, Barney?

0:03:020:03:06

To be honest I wasn't really good at anything at school.

0:03:060:03:08

Is there anything that you think you can help answer questions on?

0:03:080:03:12

Yes.

0:03:120:03:14

Good. Excellent. Please welcome the Jingle Bells,

0:03:140:03:17

give them a round of applause, everybody.

0:03:170:03:19

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:03:190:03:22

Let's kick straight off with a lightning round.

0:03:220:03:26

In this round you will each be given a word search.

0:03:270:03:30

Puddings, you're up first.

0:03:300:03:32

You're looking for Christmas decorations.

0:03:320:03:35

There are eight in total.

0:03:350:03:37

Your 45 seconds starts now. Lauren.

0:03:370:03:41

I was ahead of the game there - wreath!

0:03:410:03:43

Is that there? It is.

0:03:430:03:45

-Johnny?

-Stocking.

0:03:450:03:47

Is that there? Yes. Rachel.

0:03:470:03:50

-Bauble.

-Bauble, is it there?

0:03:500:03:52

Yes.

0:03:520:03:53

-Lauren?

-Star!

-Star?

0:03:570:03:59

-Yes, it's there.

-Angel.

-Johnny?

-Angel.

0:03:590:04:02

Angel, is that there?

0:04:020:04:03

Yes. Lauren?

0:04:030:04:05

Candle, is that there?

0:04:050:04:07

It is.

0:04:070:04:08

Turns out I'm just really terrible at this.

0:04:110:04:13

Come on, Tallulah, come on!

0:04:130:04:14

Ten seconds. Tallulah.

0:04:140:04:16

-Wreath.

-You've already had wreath.

0:04:170:04:19

Oh! Sorry.

0:04:190:04:21

It's already gone, that one. It's already gone, that one, mate.

0:04:210:04:24

And I can tell you, at the end of that round,

0:04:240:04:26

you scored six points, Puddings.

0:04:260:04:28

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:04:280:04:30

You missed two.

0:04:310:04:33

And the two you missed were...

0:04:330:04:34

-fairy.

-Oh, yeah!

-You see it now? And...

0:04:340:04:39

tinsel was the final one.

0:04:390:04:40

-Where? Oh, yeah!

-Just there.

0:04:400:04:42

Next up are the Jingle Bells.

0:04:420:04:45

You're looking for things you would have at Christmas dinner.

0:04:450:04:49

There are eight in total.

0:04:490:04:51

Your 45 seconds starts now.

0:04:510:04:54

-Barney.

-Goose.

-Is goose there?

0:04:540:04:56

It is. Naomi.

0:04:560:04:58

-Stuffing.

-Stuffing?

0:04:580:05:00

Correct. Naomi.

0:05:000:05:02

-Potatoes.

-Potatoes?

0:05:020:05:04

Yes.

0:05:040:05:06

-Ed?

-Parsnip.

0:05:060:05:07

Parsnip? Yes.

0:05:070:05:09

-Barney?

-Gravy.

-Gravy?

0:05:120:05:14

Yes. Naomi?

0:05:140:05:16

-Sprout.

-Sprout?

0:05:160:05:18

-Yes.

-Well spotted.

0:05:190:05:20

-Alex?

-Ham.

-Ham?

0:05:210:05:24

Yes.

0:05:240:05:25

Ten seconds.

0:05:270:05:29

One more to find. Naomi?

0:05:290:05:30

-Turkey.

-Turkey? Is Turkey there?

0:05:300:05:33

Yes, it is! Well done!

0:05:330:05:35

You got eight points!

0:05:350:05:37

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:05:370:05:39

Well done, teams, you got lots of points on the board! Well done.

0:05:390:05:43

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:05:430:05:46

OK, teams, from now on,

0:05:460:05:47

throughout the game you will get the chance to take control for each

0:05:470:05:51

subject. Here's your first subject.

0:05:510:05:53

It is...

0:05:530:05:55

Science.

0:05:550:05:57

-Great!

-Here is your control question.

0:05:570:06:00

Which organ produces insulin...

0:06:000:06:04

-Barney.

-Pancreas.

0:06:040:06:05

..produces insulin to help process all the sugar

0:06:050:06:08

from the Yule log I ate?

0:06:080:06:09

You said pancreas, you're absolutely right, Barney,

0:06:090:06:11

you're absolutely right!

0:06:110:06:13

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:06:130:06:15

Well done. Jingle Bells, you have control of the game.

0:06:160:06:19

Here are the rest of your questions on the subject of Food Chains.

0:06:190:06:23

You're going to see a food chain of animals in Lapland,

0:06:230:06:26

however, it's all mixed up.

0:06:260:06:28

You need to arrange it into the correct order,

0:06:280:06:30

starting at the top of the food chain.

0:06:300:06:33

Here is your mixed up food chain.

0:06:330:06:36

Fox, lemming, grass, wolf.

0:06:360:06:38

Is it wolf, fox, lemming, grass?

0:06:400:06:42

-That's what I'd go for.

-Yes.

0:06:420:06:44

I think it may be a trick question.

0:06:440:06:46

The fox might be a hard case.

0:06:460:06:47

I can tell you right now, Top Class does not give trick questions.

0:06:480:06:52

We think it's wolf,

0:06:520:06:54

then arctic fox, lemming, grass.

0:06:540:06:58

Grass at the bottom of the food chain,

0:06:580:07:00

that's what you've put as your order.

0:07:000:07:02

Let's see how many you've got right.

0:07:020:07:05

All of them right!

0:07:050:07:06

five points, Jingle Bells! Well done!

0:07:060:07:10

Well, it's all about getting control of the game, and I can tell you,

0:07:100:07:13

after that round, the Puddings have six points,

0:07:130:07:15

the Jingle Bells have 13 points!

0:07:150:07:17

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:07:170:07:20

The next subject is...

0:07:220:07:24

..Maths.

0:07:260:07:27

Here is your control question.

0:07:270:07:29

This year, Father Christmas has increased

0:07:290:07:32

the number of reindeer he has by 50% to improve productivity.

0:07:320:07:37

He started off with eight reindeer, how many does he have now?

0:07:370:07:41

-Barney?

-12.

0:07:410:07:43

12?

0:07:430:07:44

It's the right answer, Barney, it's the right answer!

0:07:440:07:47

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:07:470:07:50

Here are the rest of your questions on the subject of arithmetic.

0:07:500:07:54

I head downstairs on Christmas morning.

0:07:540:07:57

There are 20 presents under the tree.

0:07:570:08:00

Two for mum, two for dad, ten for my little sister, and six for me.

0:08:000:08:07

First question, what percentage of the presents are mine?

0:08:070:08:11

So, ten plus six, plus two, plus two, is 20.

0:08:120:08:16

If I've got six out of 20, then that's 30% of the presents,

0:08:160:08:21

-I think, isn't it?

-Yes.

0:08:210:08:23

Yes. We think 30%.

0:08:230:08:26

30%, is that the right answer?

0:08:270:08:29

It is, well done.

0:08:300:08:32

Second question:

0:08:320:08:34

I pick out a present at random.

0:08:340:08:37

What is the probability it's for my little sister?

0:08:370:08:41

She's got ten.

0:08:420:08:44

It's 50-50, isn't it?

0:08:440:08:47

-She's got half the presents.

-Is it the percentage they want?

0:08:480:08:52

The probability. One in two?

0:08:520:08:54

We're going to say one in two.

0:08:540:08:56

One in two, that's how you're expressing it to me?

0:08:560:08:59

-Oh, not necessarily.

-You look really angry!

0:08:590:09:02

-One in two?

-A one in two chance.

-It's the right answer!

0:09:020:09:04

Well done, it's the correct answer!

0:09:040:09:06

Oh, that's mean, Susan.

0:09:060:09:08

What is the mean number of presents per person this year?

0:09:080:09:13

If your presents were bought by a really mean auntie,

0:09:130:09:17

would they be the mean presents?

0:09:170:09:18

Not having it, are you? Mean number of presents...

0:09:190:09:22

So, is that halfway?

0:09:220:09:25

-Is mean the average?

-The average.

0:09:250:09:27

-Is that the mean?

-Mean is the average. Yes...

0:09:270:09:30

Oh, the median... I'm getting... Let's say... Go on.

0:09:300:09:34

Five.

0:09:340:09:35

Five?

0:09:350:09:37

It's the right answer, well done.

0:09:370:09:39

We are blagging this, amazing!

0:09:390:09:42

Finally, Dad managed to wrap 15 of them

0:09:430:09:47

in gold paper before running out.

0:09:470:09:50

All the rest are wrapped in silver paper.

0:09:500:09:53

What is the ratio of gold to silver presents?

0:09:530:09:56

I was asleep during maths.

0:09:580:10:00

Hang on, so, there is 20.

0:10:000:10:02

Five of which are silver.

0:10:020:10:05

So, it's 15...

0:10:050:10:08

15 gold, five silver.

0:10:080:10:09

-Three to one.

-Naomi?

-Three to one.

0:10:090:10:12

-Oh, I said that!

-Three to one.

0:10:120:10:14

Three to one, is that the right answer?

0:10:140:10:16

-Yes.

-It is the right answer! Five points to the Jingle Bells!

0:10:160:10:20

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:10:200:10:23

At the end of that round, the scores are...

0:10:230:10:25

the Puddings have 6,

0:10:250:10:27

the Jingle Bells have 18 points!

0:10:270:10:29

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:10:290:10:32

Here's your next subject.

0:10:320:10:33

It is...

0:10:330:10:34

..Geography.

0:10:360:10:38

Come on, we've got this!

0:10:380:10:39

Here is your control question.

0:10:390:10:42

In Italy, gifts are said to be delivered by La Befana,

0:10:420:10:46

the Christmas witch.

0:10:460:10:48

But what does she ride instead of a sleigh?

0:10:480:10:52

Johnny?

0:10:520:10:54

A gondola.

0:10:540:10:56

I can offer it over. Anyone want to buzz in straightaway?

0:10:560:10:59

-Barney?

-A broomstick. She's a witch.

0:10:590:11:03

That's the correct answer!

0:11:030:11:04

-Genius!

-Genius, who knew that a witch flies on a broomstick?

0:11:070:11:11

It's an obvious answer.

0:11:110:11:12

Barney is really showing himself up as somebody who

0:11:120:11:15

pretends not to know a single thing,

0:11:150:11:18

but has so far answered every single control question in the game.

0:11:180:11:22

Here are the rest of your questions

0:11:220:11:25

on the subject of the Winter Olympics.

0:11:250:11:27

First question: in which country is Turin,

0:11:280:11:31

host of the Winter Games in 2006?

0:11:310:11:33

Italy.

0:11:330:11:34

-Italy.

-You're saying Italy. Is that right?

0:11:340:11:37

It is, well done. In which country is Innsbruck,

0:11:380:11:41

which has hosted the Games twice?

0:11:410:11:44

Is it Austria? Innsbruck?

0:11:440:11:46

-Austria.

-Is it Austria?

0:11:460:11:48

Yes. In which country is Grenoble,

0:11:500:11:52

which hosted the 10th Winter Games?

0:11:520:11:55

France, it's in France, isn't it?

0:11:550:11:57

I think Alex should be team captain.

0:11:570:11:59

-France.

-Is it France?

0:11:590:12:01

It is, you're doing a grand job, Naomi.

0:12:020:12:04

Don't give up that seat for anyone, lady.

0:12:040:12:06

In which country is Oslo, host to the Winter Games in 1952?

0:12:080:12:12

-Norway.

-Norway.

0:12:120:12:15

-Norway.

-Is it Norway?

0:12:150:12:17

It is, five points go to the Jingle Bells!

0:12:180:12:21

Well done!

0:12:210:12:22

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:12:220:12:24

So, I can tell you, at the end of that round,

0:12:240:12:27

the Puddings have 6,

0:12:270:12:29

the Jingle Bells have 23!

0:12:290:12:31

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:12:310:12:34

Next up...

0:12:350:12:37

it's time to test the teacher.

0:12:370:12:39

As this is a special show, we have something a little bit different.

0:12:390:12:42

I mean, there's no way we'd be able to bring any of your old teachers,
