Well, a very high-scoring first round there.
Let's have a look at all the scores.
In fourth place, six points, Dev.
Third place, 11 points, Patrick.
Joint first place, 12 points apiece, Nathan and Adam.
So it is the general knowledge round now and if there's a tie at
the end of it, then the number of passes is taken into account
and the person with the fewest passes is the winner.
Let's get on with it and ask Dev to join us again, please.
Dev, you're a DJ.
The role of DJs, or disc jockeys as we used to call them,
has changed quite a bit over the years, hasn't it?
Yeah, that's right.
There's a lot more pushing buttons and talking about yourself involved
nowadays, so a lot of it's on your laptop.
Then you'll get people leaning over it with drinks and that,
screaming requests in your ear.
-Tipping the drinks into the laptop?
-Yeah, that kind of fun stuff.
How do you do that?
If they're asking you to play something and it's all in the
laptop, how do you manage that?
Basically, how I forged most of my career - it's just ignore
everybody around me and do what I want to do.
I have this suspicion that you guys exploit...
Let's use that as a kind word.
..the difference between slightly younger and slightly older people,
to make us, the slightly older people,
feel embarrassed at our lack of knowledge of modern music.
Is that a fair assessment?
I'm just a sprightly teenager who just loves everything young.
As opposed to?
I mean, you're a legend anyway, Humphrys,
so I wouldn't worry about it.
I'm sorry. Legends have to be extremely old.
-You have to at least put in a shift.
-I'm going to stop there.

Let's see how you do with general knowledge.
Two minutes of that coming up now.

The Infiltrator was that 2016 film
and Paul Nicholas joined the cast of EastEnders in 2015.
You have scored, Dev, 13 points.
And now Patrick again, please.
Now, Patrick, you're a tailor.
Is it fair to say that now you can wear
pretty much anything you want to wear?
Yeah, I think the rules of men's dress have changed considerably
over the years.
I think barriers have broken down entirely.
You can kind of wear what you want where you want.
On the other hand, if you went to, I don't know, a lunch or something
-dressed as you are now, very, very smart indeed...
..beautifully-cut suit, waistcoat and all that sort of thing,
everybody else was wearing jeans and a T-shirt,
would they feel a bit of a prat or would you?
Er, well, I wouldn't feel a prat because I like wearing these things
-and I'm kind of used to it.
-So you don't care what anybody else wears?
I spent my childhood dressing differently from my peers.
I went to Wembley to watch the semifinal of the FA Cup being

apart from perhaps a couple of coach drivers.
But I don't mind.

And, Nathan, you've been a comedian for, what, 12 years?
Something like that, yep.
Is there something in this that, in the old days if you wanted to
become a really successful comedian you had to do your porridge.
You had to have all those drunks shouting offensive stuff at you
and survive all that.
Now you get on a telly show and, bingo, you're a star.
I wouldn't say I'm a star.
I'm still up and down the circuit gigging in the clubs
-taking all the abuse.
-Social media you get it a lot.
That's slightly different.
Do they chuck abuse at you from the seats in the audience?
They shout where they think I can hear them.
But how do you deal with it? Two things really.
How do you deal with it in the theatre and how do you deal with it,
if you bother, on Twitter?
On stage, how do I deal with it? I just remember I'm getting paid.
I'm like, "Who's the loser now?"
On social media, I had one person,
the clocks went back and I made a joke about football and I said,
"Remember to put your clocks back one hour.
"Manchester United fans,
"remember to put your clocks back about five years."
Then one person tweeted me saying,
"I bet your mum wishes she could turn the clock back 26 years."
-That's not bad, is it?
-I was, "What? You think I'm 26?"
-Black don't crack.
-But it gave you another gag.
They don't realise it's feeding me, giving me ammunition, so it's fine.
Anyway, Nathan, you've got 12 points which is a big score.
That's the good news. The bad news, you've got to beat 25 now.
-No pressure. Good. Glad you feel it. Here we go.

Two passes. Lily Collins played Snow White and Branston Pickle.
Sorry. I'm not a massive pickle fan!
You've never eaten Branston Pickle?
-If you had jokes about Nando's I would have nailed it.
-Anyway, Nathan, you've now got a total of 18 points.
And now Adam again, please.
-..I looked up the quote especially for you.
I thought I'd remembered it.
"Football is a gentleman's game played by hooligans.
"Rugby is a hooligan's game played by gentlemen."
In certain parts of England, yes.
Yes, very true.
So the English basically are hooligans
and you guys are gentlemen?
No, I think we get a tougher sort of player back home in Wales
but they're brought up in a slightly different way.
Certainly where I play now, in Harlequins, they have
a silver spoon in their mouths.
But you still play for them. You take their money.
Exactly, as Nathan said.
Let's try a serious question.
Rugby now, you can succeed if you're brilliant and if you're big.
It's not that long ago Barry John or somebody, a brother-in-law of mine,
Bleddyn Williams, small man, did brilliantly.
Yeah, I think especially these Northern Hemisphere countries
there's a lot based on gym work.
Everyone's getting bigger, faster and stronger now.
I think I got out at the right time really.
What, being a skinny little chap like you are, you mean?
I was getting bigger, fatter and slower.
Right, well, you've done all right.
Over the years you've won a few caps, my goodness.
Now then, talking about doing all right, you've got 12 points already,
but the score to beat is 25 so here we go.

Third place, 18 points, Nathan.
Second place, 20 points, Adam.
First place, 25 points, Patrick.
-Thank you very much.
Must be a bit of change for you to be receiving an award
rather than handing one out as a judge on the Sewing Bee.
Well, it's certainly a lot less nerve-racking on Sewing Bee.
This is probably the most petrifying thing I've ever done
-but I'm delighted.
