Hello, I'm Rick Edwards, and this is !mpossible day 11.

0:00:020:00:05

'Impossible!'

0:00:090:00:10

APPLAUSE

0:00:100:00:12

'Impossible!'

0:00:120:00:14

Welcome to !mpossible, the quiz where the questions aren't impossible,

0:00:160:00:20

but some of the answers always are.

0:00:200:00:22

They're not just wrong, they couldn't possibly be right.

0:00:220:00:25

For example, if I were to ask...

0:00:250:00:26

The right answer is Kefalonia,

0:00:340:00:36

the wrong answer is Corfu, but Capri isn't a Greek island at all,

0:00:360:00:40

it's Italian. So that is an impossible answer.

0:00:400:00:43

Hoping to get lots of right answers,

0:00:430:00:45

whilst dodging those pesky impossible answers, are 30 players.

0:00:450:00:49

-Hello, players. ALL:

-Hello!

0:00:490:00:51

Nice to see you all.

0:00:510:00:52

They are with us throughout the series,

0:00:520:00:54

competing not only for a daily prize pot of up to £1,500,...

0:00:540:00:59

-AUDIENCE:

-Oooh!

0:00:590:01:00

..but also for a shot at the £10,000 question.

0:01:000:01:04

-AUDIENCE:

-Oooh!

0:01:040:01:05

Yes, this exclamation mark is filled with 10,000 shimmering pound coins.

0:01:050:01:11

At the end of every show, our winner faces one final question.

0:01:110:01:16

And here it is.

0:01:160:01:18

Today's £10,000 question.

0:01:180:01:20

Get this right, and all of that cash will come flooding out.

0:01:200:01:25

Elaine. You're new!

0:01:250:01:27

I am, hello.

0:01:270:01:28

Tell us a bit about yourself, Elaine.

0:01:280:01:30

What do you do when you're not on !mpossible?

0:01:300:01:32

I'm a stay-at-home mum. I have four sons and a lovely,

0:01:320:01:35

gorgeous husband who looks after me.

0:01:350:01:37

-How old are your sons?

-18, up to 29.

0:01:370:01:40

OK. Still all living with you, or are they...?

0:01:400:01:43

Two are, one keeps coming back, and one I can't get rid of.

0:01:430:01:46

LAUGHTER

0:01:460:01:48

-Dan.

-Hello.

0:01:480:01:49

-How are things?

-Tricky at the minute,

0:01:490:01:51

still waiting to get down and play a grid.

0:01:510:01:53

I really want you to get down and play a grid, Dan.

0:01:530:01:56

Yeah, maybe this will be my week.

0:01:560:01:57

-It could be, it could be a lucky week for you.

-That's it.

0:01:570:02:00

OK, well, good luck.

0:02:000:02:01

But for now, let's crack on.

0:02:010:02:04

You will face five multiple-choice questions, each with three answers.

0:02:040:02:08

The right answer scores you a point, the wrong answer scores you nothing.

0:02:080:02:12

But if you choose the impossible answer...

0:02:120:02:15

..it's a bit of a disaster,

0:02:160:02:18

that immediately knocks you out of today's show and you have to try again

0:02:180:02:22

tomorrow. After five questions,

0:02:220:02:25

the highest scorer gets the first chance to bag a place in today's final,

0:02:250:02:29

and do answer as quickly as you can, because if there's a tie,

0:02:290:02:33

whoever locked in their answers the fastest will qualify.

0:02:330:02:37

-Are we ready? ALL:

-Yes!

0:02:370:02:39

Good luck, everyone.

0:02:390:02:40

Here's your first question.

0:02:400:02:42

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:02:590:03:02

It's B, the Farrelly brothers,

0:03:030:03:05

a point to everyone that went for the Farrellys.

0:03:050:03:08

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:03:080:03:10

Of course, the Chuckle Brothers are

0:03:130:03:15

television personalities in the UK, they haven't made any films yet.

0:03:150:03:20

So everyone progresses to question two.

0:03:210:03:25

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:03:430:03:45

It's the Daily Mirror, B.

0:03:470:03:49

Well done if you went for that, a point to you.

0:03:490:03:52

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:03:520:03:54

It is C, the Daily Telegraph, which is a broadsheet, which means,

0:03:580:04:03

Helen and Curtis, we're going to have to say goodbye,

0:04:030:04:06

we'll see you tomorrow.

0:04:060:04:08

Question number three.

0:04:090:04:10

Let's first reveal the right answer.

0:04:250:04:28

It's B, Cordelia.

0:04:290:04:31

Well done if you put Cordelia.

0:04:310:04:33

A point to you. Jane, you went for Goneril.

0:04:330:04:37

Well, I did, because I'm pretty sure there is a character called Goneril

0:04:370:04:40

in King Lear.

0:04:400:04:42

That's why. And I'm hoping a daughter.

0:04:420:04:46

OK. Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:04:460:04:50

It's Rosalind, which means it's a bloodbath.

0:04:530:04:57

LAUGHTER

0:04:570:04:59

Rosalind is a character in As You Like It.

0:04:590:05:02

Going to have to say goodbye to all of you, and see you tomorrow.

0:05:020:05:06

Let's go to question four.

0:05:080:05:10

Unfortunately, one of you didn't lock your answer in in time.

0:05:280:05:32

Bim, were you having a little snooze?

0:05:320:05:35

It's official, I'm Miss !mpossible.

0:05:350:05:38

LAUGHTER

0:05:380:05:39

Like the show's mascot, Bim.

0:05:390:05:41

-Exactly.

-But I will see you tomorrow.

0:05:410:05:44

Thank you.

0:05:440:05:45

So we've got a full spread, all answers in there.

0:05:490:05:52

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:05:520:05:55

It's A, What About Us,

0:05:570:05:59

was number one in 2013.

0:05:590:06:02

If you went for What About Us, you get a point.

0:06:020:06:05

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:06:060:06:08

It's Drag Me Down, which is by One Direction.

0:06:120:06:15

Meaning, Deb and Anthony, that's it for today,

0:06:150:06:18

we'll see you both tomorrow.

0:06:180:06:20

Just one person is on four points.

0:06:210:06:25

And I don't want to take all the credit...

0:06:250:06:28

LAUGHTER ..but I had a word with him, and it is Dan.

0:06:280:06:32

CHEERING

0:06:320:06:34

I've got you, buddy.

0:06:340:06:35

Now, just don't mess this up!

0:06:370:06:39

LAUGHTER

0:06:390:06:40

OK. Question five.

0:06:420:06:44

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:07:020:07:04

It's Westminster Cathedral, which is a Catholic Church.

0:07:080:07:12

I'm afraid, Ray and Carol Marie, we we'll have to say goodbye to you

0:07:120:07:15

now, and we'll see you tomorrow.

0:07:150:07:17

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:07:190:07:22

It's Westminster Abbey!

0:07:240:07:25

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:07:250:07:27

Congratulations, Dan.

0:07:290:07:31

Too busy getting kisses off the ladies.

0:07:320:07:35

Everyone gets a point.

0:07:350:07:37

Dan, you go up to five points and you have the

0:07:370:07:39

chance to grab the first place in today's final.

0:07:390:07:43

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:07:430:07:44

Dan, everyone's delighted you've made it down.

0:07:470:07:51

I'm delighted you've made it down.

0:07:510:07:53

So you used to be a science teacher for ten years.

0:07:530:07:56

-Yes.

-What are you doing now?

0:07:560:07:58

I DJ and I do a bit of web design,

0:07:580:08:00

and the other thing I've got going on is looking into grammar school

0:08:000:08:04

entrance kind of tuition.

0:08:040:08:05

Having taught at a grammar school myself and had the benefit of that

0:08:050:08:08

education, I think it's really important.

0:08:080:08:10

And too many kids don't get the chance because they're priced out,

0:08:100:08:13

so I'm looking to kind of do a bit pro bono for the guys from tough,

0:08:130:08:17

socially deprived areas, like myself, you know,

0:08:170:08:19

smart guys, get a chance and then they can go and build their own future.

0:08:190:08:23

-Fantastic.

-So going out...

0:08:230:08:24

APPLAUSE

0:08:240:08:26

..tutoring kids so they've got a better chance of getting into grammar schools and

0:08:260:08:29

-getting a great education.

-Yeah.

-Really good.

0:08:290:08:32

All right. So this is your chance, Dan,

0:08:320:08:34

to put up to £500 into today's prize pot.

0:08:340:08:38

I'm going to give you a choice of four topics, we're hoping for science.

0:08:380:08:42

Let's see.

0:08:420:08:43

Books and Literature, Sport, Mythology, Television.

0:08:460:08:51

-Not science per se.

-Mm-hm.

0:08:510:08:54

I'm going to go with Mythology.

0:08:540:08:56

-Mythology.

-Yeah.

0:08:560:08:58

OK. I'm going to reveal nine answers.

0:08:580:09:01

They are...

0:09:010:09:03

And the first half of the question...

0:09:180:09:20

Five of those answers are impossible because they are not from Greek

0:09:260:09:30

mythology. Your first job is to find those impossible answers and banish

0:09:300:09:34

them into oblivion.

0:09:340:09:37

Each impossible answer you manage to eliminate will add £100 to today's

0:09:370:09:41

prize pot.

0:09:410:09:43

Where would you like to start?

0:09:430:09:44

I'd like to go with Wyvern first.

0:09:440:09:46

What do you think a wyvern is?

0:09:480:09:49

I think it's a dragon. I think it's from Welsh kind of mythology.

0:09:490:09:53

OK.

0:09:530:09:55

Is it an impossible answer?

0:09:550:09:56

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:10:000:10:02

It's a winged dragon from medieval folklore.

0:10:030:10:07

Where do you want to go next?

0:10:070:10:08

-Banshee.

-Let's lock banshee in.

0:10:090:10:13

What are you thinking about a banshee?

0:10:130:10:15

I'm pretty sure that's... I think it's Irish or Celtic, and

0:10:150:10:18

it's a female kind of ghost.

0:10:180:10:21

OK. Is banshee an impossible answer?

0:10:210:10:25

APPLAUSE

0:10:280:10:29

It is. £200 added to the prize pot.

0:10:290:10:32

It's Celtic, and it's a female spirit.

0:10:320:10:36

OK. Where next?

0:10:360:10:39

I think berserker.

0:10:390:10:40

Just give me the full description of the berserker.

0:10:420:10:44

Actually, I don't know what it is, but it doesn't sound very Greek,

0:10:440:10:47

I've not head of it before, so on that rationale,

0:10:470:10:49

-that's why I'm going for it.

-OK.

0:10:490:10:51

Is berserker an impossible answer?

0:10:510:10:53

APPLAUSE

0:10:570:10:58

It is. £300 in the prize pot now.

0:10:580:11:02

A berserker is from Norse mythology, it's a Norse warrior.

0:11:020:11:08

Two more impossible answers to find.

0:11:080:11:11

I think it's Ma-kara, is that how you pronounce it?

0:11:110:11:14

-Or Mak-ara.

-Makara. Any idea on Makara?

0:11:140:11:18

Again, doesn't sound very Greek,

0:11:180:11:19

I'm looking at the other ones that I'm fairly sure on,

0:11:190:11:22

and it doesn't fit for me, so I'll go with it.

0:11:220:11:24

OK. Is Makara an impossible answer?

0:11:240:11:27

APPLAUSE It is, £400 in the prize pot.

0:11:310:11:35

It's half mammal, half fish, from Hindu mythology.

0:11:350:11:39

One more impossible answer up there.

0:11:390:11:41

I'm going to go with Syclla.

0:11:420:11:44

Let's lock in Syclla.

0:11:450:11:47

Is Syclla an impossible answer?

0:11:480:11:52

It isn't.

0:11:550:11:57

Syclla is a beast from Greek mythology.

0:11:570:12:01

You've still done very well, you've put £400 into the prize fund.

0:12:010:12:05

In a moment, I'm going to reveal the second half of the question.

0:12:050:12:09

And I'm now looking for the right answer.

0:12:090:12:12

Find it, and a place in the final is yours.

0:12:120:12:15

Give me a wrong answer, and the next-best player will have

0:12:150:12:18

the chance to steal your place in the final.

0:12:180:12:21

I can reveal that it was,

0:12:210:12:25

for the 15,000th time, Ash!

0:12:250:12:30

I want a bridesmaid's outfit.

0:12:300:12:32

-We'll get you one for tomorrow.

-Thank you.

0:12:320:12:35

There is one impossible answer remaining.

0:12:350:12:37

If that trips you up, sadly, you will be eliminated from today's show.

0:12:370:12:43

Let's reveal the full question.

0:12:430:12:45

I'm pretty sure it's centaur.

0:12:550:12:58

OK.

0:12:580:12:59

If centaur is the right answer, you're through to today's final.

0:12:590:13:04

If it's the wrong answer, Ash will have the chance to steal.

0:13:040:13:08

Is centaur the right answer?

0:13:100:13:13

Yes, it is! CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:13:160:13:18

Well done, Dan.

0:13:180:13:21

That was... My heart was beating a bit there.

0:13:230:13:25

I thought you probably knew it.

0:13:250:13:27

I thought you probably knew it.

0:13:270:13:29

You did miss one impossible,

0:13:290:13:31

that was leviathan, which is a sea serpent from the Old Testament.

0:13:310:13:37

Ah, that's Old Testament.

0:13:370:13:38

But absolutely brilliantly, you've got through, after the pep talk,

0:13:380:13:42

to take your place in the final. Well done, Dan.

0:13:420:13:44

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:13:440:13:46

Still two places left in today's final alongside Dan.

0:13:500:13:54

Let's find out who's going to be claiming the next one.

0:13:540:13:57

Same deal as before, five multiple-choice questions.

0:13:570:14:01

Here's your first question.

0:14:010:14:03

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:14:210:14:24

It's C, Mrs White.

0:14:260:14:28

A point to everyone that went for Mrs White.

0:14:280:14:31

Have the rest of you managed to avoid the impossible answer?

0:14:310:14:34

It was B, Professor Green, who is a rapper.

0:14:360:14:40

Question number two.

0:14:400:14:42

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:14:560:14:58

It is C, Washington.

0:15:000:15:01

a point to everyone who put that.

0:15:010:15:04

-Annie?

-I don't want to speak to you.

0:15:040:15:06

RICK LAUGHS

0:15:060:15:08

I'm not speaking to you! I just, oh, bottled it again.

0:15:080:15:13

-Really?

-Yep. I know Omaha's not a state.

0:15:130:15:16

Oh, Annie.

0:15:160:15:17

-I'm not speaking to you no more.

-All right, you don't have to.

0:15:170:15:20

I'll just tell you what the impossible answer was.

0:15:200:15:22

It's B, Omaha.

0:15:260:15:28

Not a state, it's the largest city in Nebraska.

0:15:280:15:32

We can talk about it tomorrow, Annie.

0:15:320:15:33

Also have to say goodbye to you as well, Paul.

0:15:330:15:35

-Yeah.

-See you tomorrow.

-Cheers.

0:15:350:15:37

Question number three.

0:15:390:15:40

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:15:550:15:57

It's Saint West, C.

0:15:590:16:01

So, just three of you getting a point.

0:16:010:16:04

For the rest of you, let's see if you've managed to avoid

0:16:040:16:06

the impossible answer?

0:16:060:16:09

You have. The impossible answer was South West.

0:16:120:16:14

North West was born in 2013.

0:16:140:16:18

Moving on to question four.

0:16:180:16:20

Someone didn't lock their answer in, in time.

0:16:380:16:41

Kerry. What happened?

0:16:410:16:45

I thought I did. Obviously I did not.

0:16:450:16:48

-Nope.

-I do not have an explanation.

0:16:480:16:51

Do you know what you're going to get tomorrow?

0:16:510:16:53

Probably Olly Murs' album from my daughter!

0:16:530:16:57

-LAUGHTER

-That's more likely than not.

0:16:570:17:00

You're going to get an Olly Murs album from your daughter,

0:17:000:17:03

and a pep talk from this guy.

0:17:030:17:05

-Thank you.

-OK?

0:17:050:17:07

For now, we have to say goodbye.

0:17:070:17:10

I'll see you tomorrow.

0:17:100:17:11

We have all answers covered.

0:17:140:17:16

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:17:170:17:19

It's A, Peter III.

0:17:210:17:24

So, four of you get a point.

0:17:240:17:26

Ash.

0:17:260:17:28

-What were you thinking about?

-I actually acted in a play,

0:17:280:17:31

where I played the ballerina strumpet to Nicholas II.

0:17:310:17:36

Was your performance any good?

0:17:360:17:37

I... I really was rocking a little tutu, definitely!

0:17:370:17:40

OK. Well, let's see if you're going to have

0:17:400:17:44

more time to reflect on your performance

0:17:440:17:46

in that production,

0:17:460:17:48

and see if you've given an impossible answer.

0:17:480:17:51

Nicholas III. There was no such emperor.

0:17:540:17:57

-I'll just have a little think now.

-Yes,

0:17:570:17:59

you will have to have a little think.

0:17:590:18:01

Sarah, you might have to have a little think as well.

0:18:010:18:04

We'll see you both tomorrow.

0:18:040:18:06

-Craig?

-I'm hanging on.

0:18:060:18:07

-Middle worked.

-I'm a trier.

-You are.

-I'm a trier.

0:18:070:18:10

I just want to get to round three, and then I'll be happy.

0:18:100:18:14

All right. So, after four questions,

0:18:140:18:18

three of you are tied on three points.

0:18:180:18:21

It may well be important who locks in their answers the fastest.

0:18:210:18:26

Question five.

0:18:260:18:28

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:18:460:18:49

It's C, Goldeneye.

0:18:520:18:55

Elaine, you were tied in the lead.

0:18:550:18:57

Goldeneye was not based on an Ian Fleming book.

0:18:570:19:01

The 1995 film was named after his house in Jamaica.

0:19:010:19:05

Oh.

0:19:050:19:07

I'm sorry. We'll see you tomorrow.

0:19:070:19:09

OK. Let's reveal the right answer.

0:19:100:19:14

It is The Man With The Golden Gun.

0:19:160:19:19

So, a point to all of you who went for that.

0:19:190:19:22

I can tell you that both Gerard and Anne got that correct.

0:19:220:19:27

It means that Gerard and Anne are tied on four points each.

0:19:270:19:32

The fastest to lock in their answers across the round by a whisker...

0:19:320:19:38

..was Gerard.

0:19:400:19:41

Congratulations, Gerard. APPLAUSE

0:19:410:19:44

You have the chance to grab a place in today's final alongside Dan.

0:19:440:19:48

-Hello, Gerard.

-Hello, again.

0:19:540:19:57

-How are you?

-I'm pretty good, pretty good.

0:19:570:20:00

I'm feeling a bit bad about this whisker that was between myself and Anne.

0:20:000:20:05

It would have been nice to have seen her down here, actually.

0:20:050:20:07

Yes, but, of course, Anne will have the chance to steal from you.

0:20:070:20:12

And I think Anne will happily take that chance.

0:20:120:20:14

-I think...

-LAUGHTER

0:20:140:20:16

You've had one go already at the £10,000 question.

0:20:160:20:20

You didn't win the £10,000.

0:20:200:20:22

-No.

-Are you feeling good about today?

0:20:220:20:25

I'm feeling positive.

0:20:250:20:26

We're just going to have to wait and see how it goes.

0:20:280:20:30

It all depends on what the subject of that secret question is.

0:20:300:20:35

All right. You have the chance to add £500 to today's prize pot, which

0:20:350:20:40

already stands at £400, thanks to Dan.

0:20:400:20:44

-Yes.

-Of the three remaining topics,

0:20:440:20:48

which are Books and Literature, Sport,

0:20:480:20:50

and Television, which would you like to go for?

0:20:500:20:54

I'm going to try Television.

0:20:540:20:56

OK.

0:20:560:20:58

Well, here are your nine answers.

0:20:580:21:02

And the first half of your question...

0:21:190:21:21

Five of those answers are impossible because they didn't win

0:21:270:21:31

Strictly Come Dancing.

0:21:310:21:33

You need to find those impossible answers and get rid of them.

0:21:330:21:36

Each impossible answer you eliminate will add £100 to today's prize pot.

0:21:360:21:43

Where would you like to start?

0:21:430:21:45

I am going to start with one that sticks in my memory

0:21:450:21:49

for his entertaining performance,

0:21:490:21:53

but it wasn't exactly technically perfect,

0:21:530:21:56

so he didn't win it, and that was John Sergeant.

0:21:560:21:59

All right. Is John Sergeant an impossible answer?

0:21:590:22:03

He is. APPLAUSE

0:22:060:22:07

£100 added to the prize pot.

0:22:070:22:11

He actually withdrew in series six.

0:22:110:22:13

Next, I'm trying to wonder if she actually took part in it at all.

0:22:150:22:21

Because she presents the sort of companion programme to it on BBC Two.

0:22:220:22:26

I'm going to go for Zoe Ball.

0:22:260:22:28

Zoe Ball, let's lock her in.

0:22:280:22:31

Is Zoe Ball an impossible answer?

0:22:320:22:35

She is. APPLAUSE

0:22:380:22:41

She did take part, she came third in series three.

0:22:410:22:44

But she does now present It Takes Two.

0:22:440:22:47

Now it gets harder.

0:22:470:22:49

There were...

0:22:490:22:51

lots of lovely, pretty young ladies,

0:22:510:22:56

entertainers in it.

0:22:560:22:58

I'm looking at two of them there, Rachel and Denise.

0:22:580:23:01

But I don't think Rachel would have won.

0:23:030:23:05

OK. Is she an impossible answer?

0:23:050:23:08

APPLAUSE She is, well done, Gerard, £300 added to the prize pot.

0:23:120:23:16

It now stands at £700.

0:23:160:23:18

Rachel came second in series six.

0:23:180:23:21

Oh, gosh. I apologise to Rachel for underestimating her performance.

0:23:210:23:27

And there's always been one or two sportsmen in it.

0:23:270:23:31

So, I'm looking at the two sportsmen.

0:23:310:23:34

So, I'd like to eliminate Matt Dawson, please.

0:23:340:23:38

OK.

0:23:380:23:40

Is Matt Dawson an impossible answer?

0:23:400:23:42

APPLAUSE

0:23:460:23:48

-He is.

-Right.

0:23:480:23:49

He also did rather well in series four, came second.

0:23:490:23:52

£400 added to the prize pot.

0:23:520:23:54

It now stands at £800.

0:23:540:23:56

One more impossible answer on the grid, let's see if we can eliminate it.

0:23:560:24:00

Now, this could be a famous last word that comes back to haunt me.

0:24:000:24:04

But I think I'm OK now because I think the last one to get rid of is

0:24:040:24:08

Denise Van Outen.

0:24:080:24:10

-Yeah?

-Yes, please.

-Is Denise Van Outen...

0:24:110:24:14

an impossible answer?

0:24:160:24:17

She is!

0:24:200:24:22

APPLAUSE

0:24:220:24:23

£500 added to the prize pot.

0:24:230:24:25

Very well done, Gerard.

0:24:250:24:27

She came joint second in series ten.

0:24:270:24:31

So, the prize fund now stands at £900.

0:24:310:24:35

Let's see if you are going to be playing for that money,

0:24:350:24:38

and for a shot at the £10,000 question in the final.

0:24:380:24:42

When I reveal the second half of the question,

0:24:420:24:45

you need to tell me the right answer.

0:24:450:24:48

Find it, you're in the final with Dan.

0:24:480:24:51

Give me a wrong answer,

0:24:510:24:53

and the next best player, who is Anne, as you know,

0:24:530:24:57

gets the chance to steal your place in the final.

0:24:570:25:01

The full question is...

0:25:010:25:03

Which celebrity winner of Strictly Come Dancing won the first series of

0:25:040:25:10

the show?

0:25:100:25:11

Thank you, God!

0:25:110:25:14

He's definitely watching.

0:25:140:25:16

He's watching over me as well at the moment, I can tell you.

0:25:160:25:18

-It was Natasha Kaplinsky.

-You seem very confident in that.

0:25:180:25:21

Let's get that locked in.

0:25:210:25:24

Is Natasha Kaplinsky the right answer?

0:25:240:25:26

It is!

0:25:300:25:32

-Well done, Gerard.

-Thank you.

0:25:320:25:34

-Congratulations, take your place in the final.

-Thank you!

0:25:370:25:40

APPLAUSE

0:25:400:25:43

So, just one place left in today's final alongside Dan and Gerard.

0:25:440:25:50

Let's see who it's going to be. Only six surviving now.

0:25:500:25:54

Here are your five multiple-choice questions, starting with...

0:25:540:25:58

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:26:120:26:15

It's B, Harold.

0:26:160:26:18

A point to all of you Harolds.

0:26:180:26:20

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:26:200:26:23

A, William.

0:26:260:26:27

There was no Saxon king called William.

0:26:270:26:30

You've survived, Craig.

0:26:300:26:32

-I can't cope with this!

-One down, four to go.

0:26:320:26:35

CRAIG CHUCKLES

0:26:350:26:37

Question two.

0:26:370:26:40

Everyone's gone for Battenberg.

0:26:540:26:57

Let's see if that's the right answer?

0:26:570:27:00

It is. A point to everyone.

0:27:000:27:04

The impossible answer, Craig?

0:27:040:27:06

-Bratwurst?

-Let's see.

0:27:060:27:08

Yes. It's a pork sausage.

0:27:110:27:13

Question number three.

0:27:150:27:17

Craig. You went for Kylo Ren.

0:27:350:27:37

I did. Well, I know it's not Tyrion Lannister,

0:27:370:27:41

-cos that is Game Of Thrones.

-Ooh.

0:27:410:27:45

That's bad news for Jane, potentially.

0:27:450:27:48

And I've been very lucky because my career, I'm an actor and performer,

0:27:480:27:55

and I was lucky enough to be in the film.

0:27:550:27:58

-So, if you got this wrong, Craig!

-I'm going to be very, very stupid!

0:27:580:28:01

Let's see. Let's reveal the right answer.

0:28:030:28:07

It's A, Poe Dameron! LAUGHTER

0:28:090:28:13

You were IN the film, Craig!

0:28:160:28:21

I was a creature so I couldn't see very well.

0:28:210:28:24

OK, fine, then. LAUGHTER

0:28:240:28:27

Jo, the only one to get it right and get a point.

0:28:270:28:31

-Wow!

-Hooray!

0:28:310:28:35

Now, Craig, you did think that Tyrion Lannister

0:28:350:28:39

-maybe NOT in Star Wars...

-Mm-hm.

0:28:390:28:41

But famously you couldn't see very well, so he might have been. LAUGHTER

0:28:410:28:45

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:28:450:28:47

It is Tyrion Lannister.

0:28:500:28:52

I'm afraid, Jane, that is a Game Of Thrones character.

0:28:520:28:55

-Sorry, grandkids.

-We'll see you tomorrow.

0:28:550:28:58

-Thank you.

-Question number four.

0:28:580:29:01

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:29:180:29:20

It's B, Reykjavik.

0:29:220:29:24

So, a point to Anne, Joe and Megan.

0:29:240:29:28

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:29:280:29:30

It's C, Karachi.

0:29:330:29:36

Karachi is not a capital city,

0:29:360:29:38

it's the largest city in Pakistan but Islamabad is the capital.

0:29:380:29:43

I'm sorry, Tracy, we'll have to say goodbye to you now.

0:29:430:29:46

-We'll see you tomorrow.

-OK.

0:29:460:29:48

Only four players left as we move on to the final question.

0:29:480:29:52

And only one player has four points, and that is Craig...

0:29:520:29:56

..of course it isn't! LAUGHTER

0:29:560:29:58

And that is Jo. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:29:580:30:02

Question number five.

0:30:040:30:07

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:30:250:30:28

It's B, Gustave Flaubert.

0:30:310:30:35

He wasn't a physicist, he was a writer.

0:30:350:30:38

He wrote Madame Bovary.

0:30:380:30:40

Jo and Craig, I'm sorry, we'll have to see you tomorrow.

0:30:400:30:46

Jo, so close.

0:30:460:30:49

It is what it is.

0:30:490:30:52

That means it's between Megan and Anne.

0:30:520:30:55

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:30:560:30:59

It's Henri Becquerel!

0:31:020:31:05

APPLAUSE

0:31:050:31:07

A point to you, Anne, which means you're on the four points,

0:31:070:31:10

and congratulations,

0:31:100:31:12

you have the chance to grab the last place in today's final alongside Dan and Gerard!

0:31:120:31:16

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:31:160:31:19

Huge, huge cheers from the !mpossible family, Anne,

0:31:220:31:25

everyone's happy you're down here.

0:31:250:31:27

-How are you feeling?

-Well, I'm happy I'm down here too.

0:31:270:31:29

-Everyone's happy!

-I've been working towards it for ages.

0:31:290:31:32

You have, you have. And, finally, the hard work has paid off.

0:31:320:31:36

Remind me who's going to be watching at home?

0:31:370:31:39

There's my partner, John, and my children in various parts of the country,

0:31:390:31:44

One in London and one in South Wales, and three grandchildren,

0:31:440:31:48

-and quite a lot of friends.

-So, plenty of support out there.

0:31:480:31:51

-Absolutely.

-So,

0:31:510:31:53

you can add another £500 to today's prize pot which already stands at

0:31:530:31:58

£900, thanks to Dan and Gerard.

0:31:580:32:02

Of the remaining topics, which are Books & Literature and Sport,

0:32:020:32:08

which would you like to go for?

0:32:080:32:11

I'll go for Books & Literature.

0:32:110:32:12

OK. Books & Literature it is.

0:32:120:32:15

I'm going to reveal nine answers.

0:32:170:32:19

They are...

0:32:190:32:22

And the first half of the question...

0:32:360:32:38

Which Bronte novel...

0:32:390:32:42

Five of those answers are not novels by a Bronte.

0:32:420:32:46

-Right.

-You need to find those the impossible answers.

0:32:460:32:49

Each impossible answer you eliminate will add £100 to the prize pot.

0:32:490:32:54

-Right.

-Where would you like to start, Anne?

0:32:540:32:56

Persuasion.

0:32:560:32:58

And why are we going for Persuasion?

0:32:590:33:01

Jane Austen.

0:33:010:33:03

You think Persuasion is by Jane Austen,

0:33:030:33:05

and therefore an impossible answer.

0:33:050:33:07

Is it?

0:33:070:33:09

Yes, it is! APPLAUSE

0:33:100:33:12

£100 added to the prize fund. Persuasion is by Jane Austen.

0:33:120:33:16

-Where next?

-Black Beauty.

0:33:160:33:18

Who do you think Black Beauty is by?

0:33:200:33:21

-Anna Sewell.

-OK.

0:33:210:33:23

If that's the case, this is an impossible answer.

0:33:230:33:26

Is it?

0:33:260:33:29

APPLAUSE Another £100 added to the prize fund.

0:33:310:33:34

It is by Anna Sewell.

0:33:340:33:36

-Where would you like to go next?

-Cranford.

0:33:360:33:39

You're telling me all the authors so far.

0:33:390:33:41

-My mind has gone blank.

-Never mind.

0:33:410:33:44

Let's just see. Is Cranford an impossible answer?

0:33:440:33:48

APPLAUSE It is. £300 added to the prize pot.

0:33:510:33:56

It's by Elizabeth Gaskell.

0:33:560:33:58

Two more impossible answers remain on the grid.

0:33:580:34:02

Our Mutual Friend.

0:34:020:34:04

Our Mutual Friend. Let's get that locked in.

0:34:040:34:06

-By?

-Dickens.

0:34:070:34:10

Is Our Mutual Friend an impossible answer?

0:34:100:34:13

APPLAUSE It is.

0:34:160:34:18

And it's by Charles Dickens. £400 added to the prize fund.

0:34:180:34:23

One more impossible to find.

0:34:240:34:26

Under The Greenwood Tree.

0:34:260:34:29

-And by?

-Thomas Hardy.

0:34:290:34:32

Is Under The Greenwood Tree an impossible answer?

0:34:320:34:35

APPLAUSE Yes, it is, and it's by Thomas Hardy.

0:34:390:34:43

£500 added to the prize fund which now stands at £1,400.

0:34:430:34:48

The question is, will you be playing for that money in today's final?

0:34:480:34:53

You need to give me the right answer when I reveal the whole question.

0:34:530:34:58

Remember, the next best player from that round, who was Megan...

0:34:580:35:01

..there she is, is waiting to steal your place in the final

0:35:020:35:06

if you give a wrong answer.

0:35:060:35:09

The full question is...

0:35:090:35:12

Which Bronte novel

0:35:120:35:15

features the character Catherine Earnshaw?

0:35:150:35:19

Doddle.

0:35:190:35:21

Doddle, Anne says! LAUGHTER

0:35:210:35:24

-It's Wuthering Heights.

-Let's lock Wuthering Heights in.

0:35:240:35:27

Is Wuthering Heights the right answer for a place in the final?

0:35:290:35:32

It is! CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:35:350:35:37

-Congratulations, Anne.

-Thanks.

-Well done.

0:35:370:35:40

-Thank you.

-And you've grabbed the last place in today's final.

0:35:400:35:43

Go and take your place.

0:35:430:35:45

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:35:450:35:49

For the rest of you, I'm afraid that victory today proved impossible,

0:35:510:35:55

but we'll see you all tomorrow.

0:35:550:35:58

But for Dan, Gerard and Anne, it's time for the final.

0:35:580:36:02

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:36:020:36:05

Dan, Gerard and Anne, there's £1,400 in today's prize pot.

0:36:070:36:12

Only one of you can win that money and get the chance to face the £10,000 question.

0:36:120:36:17

You're each going to start with ten lives.

0:36:170:36:21

Questions are on the buzzer.

0:36:210:36:23

Get one right and you knock a life off both your opponents.

0:36:230:36:26

Buzz and get one wrong, you lose one of your own lives.

0:36:260:36:30

However, some of the questions are impossible.

0:36:300:36:34

If you think you've spotted one of those,

0:36:340:36:36

all you have to do is buzz in and say, "impossible".

0:36:360:36:40

That'll be double trouble for your opponents.

0:36:400:36:42

They'll both lose two lives.

0:36:420:36:45

But if you say a question is impossible when it isn't,

0:36:450:36:49

or give any other answer, it's you who will lose the two lives.

0:36:490:36:54

You ready? Good luck.

-BUZZER Gerard?

-Impossible.

0:39:120:39:14

It is impossible, it's French for Thursday.

0:39:140:39:17

That means, Dan, I'm afraid, you lose your remaining life.

0:39:170:39:20

Commiserations to Anne, commiserations to Dan.

0:39:220:39:26

You fought valiantly. We'll see you next time.

0:39:260:39:29

-Very well done, Gerard.

-Thank you.

0:39:290:39:31

It's time to face, once again, the £10,000 question.

0:39:310:39:34

APPLAUSE

0:39:340:39:37

Gerard, you're today's winner with £1,400.

0:39:390:39:43

But you could be leaving with a whole lot more if you can answer

0:39:430:39:47

the £10,000 question.

0:39:470:39:49

Now, you've been here once before, and you won £1,400.

0:39:490:39:52

Whatever happens,

0:39:520:39:54

you'll be leaving us after this show

0:39:540:39:56

because you only get two attempts at the £10,000 question.

0:39:560:39:59

I'm going to show you nine answers, and then ask you a question.

0:39:590:40:04

Three of the nine answers are correct.

0:40:040:40:07

And if you can find them all within ten seconds, you win that £10,000.

0:40:070:40:11

There's your good news. The less good news is that three of those answers are wrong.

0:40:110:40:18

Pick any of those and you won't win the £10,000.

0:40:180:40:21

The bad news is three of the nine answers are impossible.

0:40:210:40:25

Give me any of THOSE answers and you lose the £1,400.

0:40:250:40:30

Today's £10,000 question, I hope it's a good one for you,

0:40:300:40:34

it's on geography.

0:40:340:40:37

-Could be.

-Good luck.

0:40:370:40:39

Here are your nine answers.

0:40:390:40:42

And you're looking for...

0:40:540:40:57

African countries that are members of the Commonwealth.

0:40:580:41:02

And your time starts now.

0:41:020:41:04

Zambia... Uganda...

0:41:040:41:08

And I'm going to gamble on Rwanda.

0:41:080:41:11

If those three are right,

0:41:150:41:18

you'll win £10,000.

0:41:180:41:22

Let's start with Zambia.

0:41:220:41:25

Is Zambia an African country that is a member of the Commonwealth?

0:41:280:41:34

APPLAUSE It is!

0:41:370:41:41

Edging closer to £10,000, Gerard.

0:41:430:41:47

We need Uganda to be an African country in the Commonwealth.

0:41:480:41:54

Is Uganda a right answer?

0:41:540:41:57

APPLAUSE It is. You're going well, Gerard.

0:42:020:42:06

-So far.

-Those were the two you seemed confident in.

0:42:070:42:11

-Yeah.

-Rwanda you said was a gamble.

0:42:110:42:13

Yeah. There's another at least one more that I think it could be,

0:42:130:42:18

I just had to make an impulsive decision.

0:42:180:42:21

OK. If that impulsive decision was the right one,

0:42:210:42:26

you're going to go home £10,000 richer.

0:42:260:42:29

Is Rwanda an African country in the Commonwealth?

0:42:290:42:35

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE It is! Come here, Gerard!

0:42:390:42:43

£10,000!

0:42:450:42:48

It is all yours!

0:42:480:42:51

-My word!

-You can touch it. I really genuinely don't mind.

0:42:510:42:55

-It's genuine.

-It's real money.

-It is!

0:42:550:42:58

And there's genuinely 10,000 of them.

0:42:580:43:03

You must be absolutely delighted!

0:43:030:43:05

-Over the moon.

-The impossible answers that you managed to avoid...

0:43:050:43:09

..Suriname, Guatemala and Bali, not in Africa.

0:43:100:43:14

-Gerard, you're leaving the show with £10,000!

-Oh, wow!

0:43:140:43:19

-CHEERING

-Thank you!

0:43:190:43:22

So, Gerard leaves the show with £10,000,

0:43:220:43:24

the hospital radio's going to get some new equipment.

0:43:240:43:27

This has been !mpossible, the quiz where anything is possible.

0:43:270:43:30

See you next time. Goodbye!

0:43:300:43:32

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:43:320:43:35
