APPLAUSE AND CHEERING
Thank you very much indeed. Hello. I'm Alexander Armstrong
and welcome to a special edition of Pointless Celebrities
in aid of BBC Children In Need.
Let's meet today's Pointless Celebrities.
Couple number one.
Hello, my name's Duncan James from Blue,
-and this is my gorgeous mum, Fiona.
-Couple number two.
-Hello. My name's Perry Fenwick,
better known as Billy Mitchell on EastEnders.
This is Danielle Harold, who plays Lola, my granddaughter.
We've come all the way from Walford.
Couple number three.
Hello, I'm Harry Judd from McFly,
this is my mum Emma from Suffolk, and I'm from London.
And our fourth couple.
Hello. I'm Arlene and this is my daughter, Alana,
and we both live in North London and we're back for punishment again.
And these are our Pointless Celebrities.
Thank you all very much.
We'll be finding out more about all of you throughout
the show as it goes along. Only two people left for me to introduce.
Firstly, it's my Pointless friend, Richard,
and it's everybody's friend, Pudsey.
-Can I ask one question?
-Is this a Children In Need special?
OK, that explains an awful lot.
I love you, big guy. You know I always sit here by myself?
-So I figured I'd have someone to sit with,
someone I could chat to during the show. And then I remembered -
Pudsey doesn't talk.
Doesn't say a thing. Watch this.
Watch this. Who's going to win the Arsenal-Tottenham game tomorrow?
Anyway, it should be a load of fun. We've got great contestants.
-On Pointless, people are allowed back twice.
-Arlene and Alana
have come back for a second time.
Didn't absolutely cover yourself in glory last time,
but you're back for more. And I think Perry might be the youngest grandad
we've ever had on Pointless.
-Hate to say it, but it's great-grandad now.
Not my fault.
You did it!
Brilliant, thanks very much indeed, Richard.
All questions on Pointless have been put to 100 people before the show.
Our contestants must find obscure answers those 100 people didn't get.
Everyone's looking to find a pointless answer -
an answer that none of our 100 people gave
and every time that happens, we'll add 250 quid to the jackpot.
Now, as today is a Children In Need special edition of Pointless,
we are going to start off with a jackpot of £5,000.
OK, if everyone's ready, let's play Pointless.
OK, in this round I'll take one answer from each of you
and there is to be no conferring. Whichever pair has the highest score
at the end of the round will be eliminated, so try and ensure
that's not you. Our first category today is...
The Olympic Games. Can you decide in your pairs who's going to go first and second.
And whoever's going first, please step up to the podium.
OK, let's find out what the question is.
We gave 100 people 100 seconds to name:
Yeah, we're looking for the name of any country apart from the UK
that won at least one gold medal in the 2012 Olympics in London.
So any country that won at least one gold medal.
Pudsey says, "As always by country you mean a sovereign state
"that's a member of the UN."
OK. Fiona, where have you come from?
-I live in Hertfordshire.
What do you like to get up to in Hertfordshire?
-I've got two little dogs.
-What are their names?
-Lula and Jack.
Ah, good. Lula and Jack.
Jack's a Yorkshire terrier, a big Yorkshire terrier,
-so I walk my dogs.
-And that's about it!
-Did you follow the Olympics?
-Watched it a little on the telly.
-Enough to have a good answer for this?
-Well, I have to guess.
-I've heard of that, yep, France(!)
Let's see if France is correct,
and if it is, let's see how many of our 100 people said France.
-Not very good, is it?
-53 for France. Not bad at all. Richard.
That's a very solid start, well done. They won 11 golds, France.
-But they didn't win the Olympics, did they? We won that.
-How many golds did we win?
-You and I? We didn't win any. Do you not remember?
We won 29 golds, didn't we? 29 golds?
29. Are you suggesting you won a gold?
You're such a liar.
OK. Now then, Perry, did you watch the Olympics?
-Yeah, I was part of it.
-He carried the flame.
-I was a torch bearer.
Of course you were!
-So, have you got a brilliant answer?
-Well, I'm thinking of Mr Bolt.
-So, I hope I'm right, Jamaica.
Let's see if that's right - how many of our 100 people said Jamaica?
This is good, Perry.
-38 for Jamaica.
-Well played, Perry. Very good start.
-Four golds, they won, largely thanks to Usain Bolt.
-Emma, we come to you.
-What do you get up to in Suffolk, Emma?
-Er, well, I work
-as a practice nurse.
-That keeps you quite busy, I should think.
And Harry's getting married this year. So at the moment...
-There we are. Very well done.
-You must be so proud of Harry.
-Oh, I'm so proud!
And a lovely, lovely fiancee, so, so happy.
-Very good. Now, Emma.
-Have you got an answer?
-Well, I'm going for a punt.
-So I'm going New Zealand.
Let see if that's right. Let's see how many people said New Zealand.
It is right.
38, our lowest score so far.
Oh, down it goes.
-11 for New Zealand.
Yeah, best answer yet, Emma. Very well done.
They won six golds, the New Zealanders.
Arlene. We're looking for the names of any country that won a gold medal
in the 2012 Olympics.
-I'm going to go with the Bahamas.
-The Bahamas, says Arlene.
Let's see if the Bahamas is right, how many people said the Bahamas?
It is right.
11 is our best score so far.
Down it goes. Still down.
Look at that! Three, Arlene.
Very well played, Arlene. You can tell you've been here before.
They only won one medal in the whole Olympics, and that was a gold.
-Let me just check.
What did they win the gold for?
-Was it the pole vault?
-Let me check, hold on.
Literally just got head-butted by Pudsey. That can't be right.
Yeah, the men's 4x400 metres relay. Very, very good answer.
Thank you, Richard. And Pudsey.
We're halfway through the round, let's look at the scores.
In order, Arlene and Alana.
Three. Beautiful low score there.
Alana, you're looking very strong
for the next pass, I would say.
Emma, brilliant answer from you.
11, you are on.
And Perry on 38 with Danielle.
And Fiona and Duncan on 53.
-You've got your work cut out here.
-We need a brilliant low score from you.
-Otherwise it'll be goodbye.
Can the second players please step up to the podium?
the high scorers are Duncan and Fiona on 53. You're on 3.
A score of 49 or less from you sees you
comfortably through to Round Two.
-Did you watch the Olympics at all? Did you go along?
-I went to watch the women's hockey.
Don't know why that's funny, but...
What are you going to go for?
-OK, here's your red line.
If you can get below that red line with Holland,
you're in Round Two already.
Let's see if Holland is right. How many of people said Holland?
-I think it's wrong.
You're in Round Two. Very well done.
Superb answer, Alana. That takes your total up to 15.
-Very well played, Alana. Six golds, is that right?
Oh, he's only got eight fingers, this is going to be difficult.
Six golds, they won. Very well done. Safely through to Round Two.
Now, Harry. McFly record a new album next year and you go off on tour.
-That's right, yeah.
-This is very exciting.
-For me, anyway.
-Very good. How often is Emma allowed to come along?
Erm, Mum, I'd say, comes to at least one or two shows every tour.
At least one or two. Yeah.
The high scorers are still Duncan and Fiona on 53. You're on 11.
That means if you can score 41 or less, you're also in Round Two.
I'm going to say Ireland.
Ireland, says Harry. Let's see if Ireland is right,
and if so, how many people said it.
Below that red line, you're through to the next round. Ireland.
It's right! Very well done.
Through you go to the next round.
Brilliant score, brilliant answer. 21's your total. Richard.
Well played, Harry, and you beat your mum's score by one as well.
You're absolutely right. They got one gold medal.
Boxing, wasn't it?
-Yeah, Katie Taylor for Republic of Ireland.
Do a little Katie Taylor impression.
-Not bad at all. Not bad at all.
Thanks very much indeed. Now then, Danielle.
You're on 38, the high scorers
are still Duncan and Fiona on 53.
If you can score 14 or less, you're through to the next round.
-How are you feeling?
-So, no pressure(?)
-Not much. No, no, no.
Erm, I think I'm going to go with Australia.
-You're going to go with Australia?
Here comes your red line. It's quite low.
If you can get below that with Australia,
you're through to the next round. Australia, says Danielle.
Let's see if it's right - and how many people said Australia?
Oh, that's a big score. 53.
Exactly the same score as Fiona got for France. Takes your total to 91.
Australia got seven golds at the Olympics or, to put it
another way, Australia got 22 fewer golds than Great Britain.
-Duncan, what are you up to just now?
-Just recording a new album for Blue.
And it's going to be released next year,
we're just about to go on tour to China,
which I know won medals for the Olympics
but I'm not going to say them.
The high scorers on 91 are Perry and Danielle.
So you want to be scoring 37 or less.
I'm thinking Dominican Republic or, like...
I don't know, don't ask me!
I'm going to go for Barbados.
-Barbados, says Duncan.
-Take a gamble.
-Here is your red line.
Barbados just has to be right. If it's right,
it's probably going below that red line.
Barbados, is it right and how many people said it?
It's... Oh, no!
Was Dominican Republic in there?
We'll ask the big man.
Oh, Pudsey, you'll have to block the other eye,
-you've already got a bandage over it!
-It was a gamble!
Poor old Pudsey. Pudsey had 20 quid on you winning.
Oh, Duncan and Fiona.
That scores you 100 points,
takes your total up to 153. I'm sorry.
Yeah, Barbados didn't get any medals at all, I'm afraid.
-What was your other option?
-got one gold.
-Why didn't you say that?
And not only was it a correct answer, it was a pointless answer as well.
Would have added £250 to the jackpots right there.
That's really tough luck. As soon as you said Dominican Republic,
I was rubbing my hands. I'm so sorry.
Let's look at some of the other pointless answers.
There's a few up here.
Algeria won a gold in the 1500 metres.
Argentina, they only won one gold, in the tae kwon do.
Columbia would've been a pointless answer,
would've added money to the jackpot.
Georgia. Iran won four golds, Latvia won one gold in the BMX cycling.
Serbia. Switzerland won two golds and Venezuela.
The other ones you could have had - Dominican Republic, Slovenia
and Uzbekistan. Very well done if you got any of those at home,
-and that is such tough luck, Duncan.
-Thanks so much, Richard.
At the end of the round, the pair who'll be leaving us with a high score of 153,
-I'm really sorry, it's Duncan and Fiona.
-I'm sorry. Just promise to come back.
-We've love to.
-We'll have you back. Thanks so much.
Duncan and Fiona, lovely contestants.
But for the remaining three pairs, is now time for Round Two.
Now, sadly at the end of this round another pair will be leaving us.
I don't know which pair that's going to be.
-Oh, Perry and Danielle, oh, a bit lucky there.
OK. Best of luck to all three. Our category for Round Two is:
Can you all decide in your pairs who's going to go first, who's going to go second.
And whoever's going first, please step up to the podium.
OK, our Round Two question concerns:
Disney films and their songs. Richard.
We'll show you the names of 12 songs that have featured in Disney or Disney-Pixar animated films.
You just need to tell us in which film did the first appear.
Give us a nice obscure answer, you'll score fewer points,
an incorrect answer will score 100 points.
-12 in all to have a go at at home.
-OK, thanks very much.
We are looking for the name of the film in which each of these songs first appeared.
And our first board is this:
I'll read all those one last time:
OK, there are the six songs.
We want you to find the name of the films they are from and, as ever,
the most obscure film
will score you the most points. Now then, Perry. Oh, yes,
you look floored by that, Perry.
It's not good for me. Not good for me.
One's standing out really obvious.
I'm going to have to go for
the only one that I know.
Which is Cruella de Vil, 101 Dalmatians.
101 Dalmatians, says Perry, for Cruella de Vil.
Let's see if that's right, and how many of our 100 people knew that answer.
It is right.
64, Perry. Could be worse.
64 for 101 Dalmatians.
A big score. Talking of big numbers,
if you want to donate to Children In Need tonight,
if you go to the BBC website...
..and click on donate. That's what we're all here for.
Go ahead and do that now. Well, not right now -
watch the rest of this show,
unless you've got a computer in front of you, and then do it.
Hold on, let me pretend to donate now on my computer that doesn't work.
I will hold you to doing that later, obviously.
I've just realised, it is actually on.
Thank you, Richard. Emma. How does that board looks to you?
Well, I'm pretty poor with this,
but I think I know one.
And I think it's The Lion King,
I Just Can't Wait To Be King.
I Just Can't Wait To Be King.
The Lion King. Let's see if that's right,
and if it is, let's see how many people said The Lion King.
It is right.
64 our lowest score so far, you've got past that.
Good work, Emma.
44 for The Lion King.
Another good answer, Emma.
-Written, of course, by Elton John and the wonderful Sir Tim Rice.
OK. I know Beauty And The Beast.
You've Got A Friend In Me is Toy Story.
And I think You'll Be In My Heart is from Tarzan,
but I'm a bit 50-50 on it.
I think I'm going to do...
Toy Story - You've Got A Friend In Me,
but I'll kick myself if the bottom one's right.
You've Got A Friend In Me, Toy Story, let's see if that's right,
and if it is, let's see how many people knew. Toy Story.
It is right.
Can you just... Can you just tell me if the bottom one is right?
15, that's fantastic, very well done indeed.
Great score. Toy Story is surprisingly low.
Perhaps people don't know the name of the song.
It's composed by Randy Newman.
He's been nominated 20 times for Oscars, Randy Newman.
He's only won twice, but 20 times.
You know Pudsey has a little crush on Alana?
-That's the awkward thing I'm having to deal with now.
Alana, you took us very nicely through the rest of the board too -
-you're right about You'll Be In My Heart, from Tarzan.
Would have scored five points.
Be Our Guest, you're right, Beauty And The Beast,
That would have scored 20 points.
My Funny Friend And Me is the pointless answer on that board.
It's from The Emperor's New Groove.
Very well done to anybody who said that at home.
Thank you. We're halfway through the round.
Let's take a look at those scores.
Again, Alana, Arlene, looking fantastic. 15, fabulous low score.
Then we travel up to 44 where we find Emma and Harry. Very solid.
Up to 64, Perry and Danielle,
-looking a little bit exposed out front there.
-See you later!
You'll get a new board, though, and I have a feeling, Danielle,
-you'll be brilliant on this.
-I think you are. Very best of luck.
Can the second players please take their places at the podium?
OK. We're going to put six more songs
on the board and here they come. We have got:
I'll read all those one last time:
Remember, we're looking for the name of the film
that each of the songs first appeared in.
Obviously, Arlene, you'll find the one the fewest of our 100 people knew.
You're on 15, a brilliant low score from Alana.
The high scorers are Danielle and Perry on 64.
-Anything less than 48 sees you into the head-to-head.
I got Disney films
so long ago that they were
on the old-fashioned videotapes.
Um, A Girl Worth Fighting For,
-is that from The Aristocats?
No, I mean...
A Girl Worth Fighting For, The Aristocats?
No. That's not from the Aristocats.
-I don't know why I said that. But that's fine.
-Maybe it's right.
Let's see how many of our 100 people said The Aristocats.
There's your red line.
No! No, Arlene.
-We knew that was going to happen.
I don't know why I was looking down, and it says cat, quite clearly...
And it's about cats, quite clearly.
I'm afraid that scores you 100 points, takes you got up to 115.
The round is not over yet, Arlene, not by a long chalk.
-Anything can happen. Richard.
-Yeah, you've upset Pudsey as well.
He's not happy.
Because you don't want Alana to go home? You fancy Arlene as well?
-Yeah. Nothing to add to that. Harry.
-You're on 44.
Arlene and Alana on 115.
If you can score 70 or less, you're in the head-to-head.
-How's the board looking?
-It's looking a lot better
after a bit of help from someone.
-Thank you very much, Harry Judd.
-I know one of them for sure.
I'm going to go Thomas O'Malley Cat - Aristocats.
Thomas O'Malley Cat. The Aristocats? Interesting.
OK, here's your red line.
Get below that, through you go to the head-to-head.
The Aristocats, Thomas O'Malley Cat. Is that right?
-You're in the head-to-head.
25 takes your total up to 69.
-Well done, Harry.
-I feel a bit bad.
-It's fine, Harry.
-It's fine. You're beautiful. It's OK.
-So are you, I'm sorry.
-Very well played, Harry.
I have to say, that is spectacular work, Arlene, not only scoring
100 points, but then giving a really good answer to the next people in line.
-That might be a first for Pointless.
-Well, the round is not yet over.
Danielle has yet to speak.
You're on 64, the high scorers on 115 are Arlene and Alana.
If you can score 50 or less, you are in the head-to-head.
-So, we're looking for the names of the films these songs are from.
I think I know the last one. If it's right, it'll probably be low.
So I'm going to just go for it.
Girl Worth Fighting For - Mulan?
-Is Pudsey whispering to Richard or...?
-No, he's trying to see if that's a right answer.
-Is it right?
-Can you tell me?
-There is your red line, Danielle.
If you get below that red line, you're through to the next round.
Is Mulan right and, if so, how many people said Mulan? Good luck.
-It's right. Very well done, Danielle.
And you're in the head-to-head. Well done.
That's a fabulous answer.
Very, very well done, takes your total to 67,
the lowest score of the round.
-Very, very well played, Danielle,
it's the lowest score you could've got on this board.
You were confident about the top three, do you want to have a go at filling them in?
Don't put me on the spot, I was only lying!
-When I See An Elephant Fly.
-That's it! I'm going like this.
Would've scored 37. Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo.
-Alice In Wonderland?
-Oh, of course it is! Cinderella.
-14. I Want To Be Like You?
-Absolutely right. 75.
-And, Alana and Arlene, Some Day My Prince Will Come?
Absolutely right. Snow White And The Seven Dwarves, 16 points.
There we are. Thank you very much indeed, Richard.
So, at the end of Round Two, our losing pair with a high score
of 115, it's just not right, Arlene and Alana. You did so well.
Do you know what, it's the Round Two curse, I'm afraid.
-Every time you come back here, Round Two.
-Every time. Round Two.
-You'll just have to come back a third time.
It's been lovely having you on the show. Great contestants.
-Thank you for playing.
For the remaining pairs, things are about to get more exciting, as we enter the head-to-head.

Now, congratulations, Harry and Emma, Perry and Danielle.
You're only one round away from the final
and a chance to play for the jackpot,
which currently stands at £5,000. Very well done.
Now, obviously only one pair can play for that money. To decide
which pair it'll be, you'll go head-to-head.
This time you are allowed to confer.
The first pair to win two questions plays for that jackpot.
Best of luck to both players. Let's play the head-to-head.
OK, here comes your first question. And it concerns:
-Yep, we're going to show you five pictures of famous actors
as they appeared in their younger days.
Can you identify the most obscure of these, please? Very best of luck.
Let's reveal our five child stars and here they come. We have got:
There we are. Five child stars.
Now, Harry and Emma, because you've played best in the show so far,
you get to go first.
This is tough. One second. Erm...
-Christine Bale is D, I think C is Brooke Shields...
A, Attenborough, Richard Attenborough.
We think we know all of them.
Just to let you know.
-Feeling quite smug about that.
Having said that, maybe we don't know. OK. I'm going to go with A.
-A, Richard Attenborough, say Harry and Emma.
A, Richard Attenborough. OK, Perry and Danielle, the board is yours.
-Talk us through them.
-B is Drew Barrymore.
C, Brooke Shields.
-I think you thought you knew E, didn't you?
I can think of her name, though.
I know it's the girl from Twilight, I just can't remember her name.
I think we're going to take a chance here.
I think it might be right.
-I think D is Christian Bale.
-D, Christian Bale, you're going for.
OK, D, Christian Bale.
So we have A, Richard Attenborough, D, Christian Bale.
Harry and Emma said Richard Attenborough for A.
Let see if it's right, and how many people said it.
Oh. Not Richard Attenborough.
So, Perry and Danielle, you've gone for Christian Bale, D.
That just has to be right.
That's all it has to be, and you'll win this question. Is it right?
It's absolutely right. Very well done.
It's pointless. I bet it is.
Oh, it's a great scorer. Six. Very, very well done indeed.
Six for Christian Bale, which means, after one question,
Perry and Danielle are up one-nil. Richard.
Yeah, good work, Perry.
Harry and Emma, I think you did know all of them apart from that top one.
I was hearing you whisper away.
The top one does look like Richard Attenborough, doesn't it?
-But it's actually... Perry, do you know?
It is Mickey Rooney. Absolutely right.
It's the best answer on the board, would've scored five points.
Very well done if you said that at home. Mickey Rooney.
B, you're absolutely right, was Drew Barrymore, would have scored 30.
C, Brooke Shields. Also quite a big scorer actually, 26 points for her.
-And E, did you know E, Harry and Emma?
-Kristen Stewart would have scored 10 points.
-Thank you very much, Richard.
Here comes your second question, Emma and Harry.
You have to win this question to stay in the game.
OK, and it concerns:
There we are. Five questions about Children In Need.
You answer the one you think the fewest of our 100 people knew.
And Perry and Danielle, you get to go first this time.
I've kind of got an idea of when it started, but it's a bit risky so...
Ask Pudsey. Who's your girlfriend, Pudsey?
When did you start?
I think we are going to go for the One Show presenter
and I think it's Matt Baker.
Matt Baker say Perry and Danielle. Matt Baker.
The One Show presenter who cycled all that distance in a rickshaw.
Now then, Harry and Emma, this is the one that you have to win.
Talk us through the board, if you can.
The year Terry Wogan first presented the Children In Need telethon,
I'd guess, early '80s. I'd guess '83 for some reason, rings a bell.
Lou Reed song performed by multiple artists was Perfect Day.
And, for some strange reason, I think I know this bottom answer.
The name of the female bear mascot introduced in 2009 is Blush.
OK, Harry and Emma are going to go for Blush.
So, we have Matt Baker versus Blush.
Perry and Danielle, you've said Matt Baker was the One Show presenter.
Let's see if that's right and, if it is, let's see how many people said it.
23. Very well done.
Harry and Emma have said Blush is the name of the bear mascot
introduced in 2009.
Let's see if that's right and, if it is, let's see how many people said it.
You have to win this one to stay in the game. Best of luck.
-Yeah, well done.
-Is it going to beat 23?
Yes, it is. Down it goes.
Very, very well done indeed, Harry and Emma.
That's exactly what you needed to do.
That means, after two questions, you are drawing one all. Richard.
That is brilliant work, Harry. Very, very well played
cos it was a very good answer from the other team as well.
Blush. You like Blush, don't you?
Are you going to see plenty of Blush this evening?
And Terry Wogan, he's your mate. What's he like, Terry Wogan?
He's nice, is he? He seems nice. He seems nice, doesn't he?
-Yeah, he does.
-He does seem nice. Very, very well played.
This is going to go all the way now.
Let's go through the rest of the board.
The year he first presented it wasn't 1983.
It was 1980, the first Children In Need telethon.
That would have scored four points.
The best answer on the board is the celebrity he kissed for £50
which is Joanna Lumley.
Two points. And the Lou Reed song, absolutely, was Perfect Day.
That's the biggest answer there. 31 points.
Very good. Thank you very much, Richard.
We like to say very, very best of luck
to this year's Team Rickshaw on the One Show
who are attempting the whole thing all over again.
So, very best of luck to them.
OK, now, here comes the third question. The decider.
This will see who goes through to the final
and plays for that jackpot for Children In Need.
Your third question concerns...
Barack Obama. Richard.
We are about to show you find clues to facts about Barack Obama.
If you give us the most obscure answer,
it's going to win this point and get you through to the final as well.
Very, very best of luck to both teams.
OK. Thank you very much, Richard.
Let's reveal our five clues to facts about Barack Obama.
And here they come. We have got...
I'll read those all one last time.
So, there you are. Five clues to facts about Barack Obama.
Harry and Emma, you go first this time.
I know it's probably the most obvious one
but we don't want to risk not getting any points
so we think his wife's first name is Michelle.
Michelle say Harry and Emma. Michelle.
Now then, Perry and Danielle, talk us through the board.
Can we have another question, please?
I've kind of got a hunch about where his father was born
but I can't take the risk so the one that we want to submit is,
everyone would get it but, his main residence is the White House.
-You're going to go with the White House.
OK, Perry and Danielle say the White House, his main residence.
So, Harry and Emma have gone with Michelle, his wife's first name.
Let's see if that's right and, if it is,
let's see how many of our 100 people said Michelle.
Perry and Daniel have said
the White House is his main residence as president.
Let's see if that's right. Let's see how many people said that.
Yeah, it's right.
OK, so, Perry and Danielle, well done. There you go.
You have done it.
After three questions you're through to the final, 2-1.
Well played. Harry and Emma, you're very unlucky there.
The name of his vice president is the best answer on the board.
-It's Joe Biden.
-Joe Biden, yeah.
Joe Biden would have scored you eight points.
Now, the country in which his father was born.
-Emma, did you have an idea on this?
-I thought it was Kenya.
-It is Kenya.
-Oh, mum, I'm sorry.
That would have scored 12 points. It would have seen you through as well.
And anybody on the state in which he was born?
-Anyone in the audience?
-Hawaii is absolutely right.
That would have scored 1-8.
Hawaii 1-8. 18 points.
Really, really tough luck but very well done, Perry and Danielle.
Very well done indeed.
So, the losing pair at the end of the head-to-head,
I'm sorry to say, it's Harry and Emma.
You were that close to saying...
If you'd said Kenya, you'd have gone through.
And Joe Biden, you were quite close to getting it.
I thought most people would know he lived in the White House.
I thought that was a kind of throwaway answer.
-I thought that.
-I was even doubting myself with White House.
Harry and Emma, it's been lovely having you on the show.
-Thank you for having us.
-Thank you so much. Harry and Emma.
But for Perry and Danielle, it's now time for our Pointless final.
Congratulations Perry and Danielle,
you have fought off all the competition
and you have won our coveted Pointless trophy.
You now have a chance to win our Pointless jackpot
for Children In Need and at the end of today's show
the jackpot stands at £5,000.
Did you ever think you were going to get this far?
I thought we were going in the first round.
Yeah, I would have put money on that we would be gone in the first round.
You've done really well. I mean, you have winged it.
But you've done phenomenally well.
Very, very best of luck in this last round.
The rules are very simple.
To win the money all you have to do is find a pointless answer.
Do that and you win £5,000 for Children In Need.
Firstly, you have to choose a category.
You have five options to choose from. And they are...
-We are unanimous, aren't we, Dan?
-What do you think?
-Movie stars it is.
OK, well let's find what the question is. Here it comes.
We gave 100 people 100 seconds
to name as many Liam Neeson films as they could.
Liam Neeson films. Richard.
Yeah, we are looking for any feature film made for cinema release
for which Liam Neeson has received an acting credit
up to the end of October 2012.
No short films, TV films or documentaries
but voice performances do count. Very best of luck.
OK, you now have up to one minute to come up with three answers
and all you need to win that £5,000 for Children In Need
is for just one of those answers to be pointless.
Are you ready?
-OK, let's put 60 seconds on the clock.
There they are. Your time starts now.
Right. From what I know,
I know he was in the remake of Mutiny On The Bounty
-with Mel Gibson.
-Yeah, but is that a bit...?
Well, he was in it. He's definitely in the film.
He is also in a low-budget film with Joanne Whalley.
-And I think it was called The Big Man.
After that I'm thinking of modern-day stuff.
I know they go back to the '80s.
Think of the latest one.
-Wait, latest? Earliest.
-Yeah, well, exactly. So, yeah. The Big Man...
-My mind's gone blank.
I've got one. I watched one on DVD on Sunday.
-What is it?
-I don't know. It was rubbish.
-You better hope he ain't watching.
He's a big bloke, ain't he? He's The Big Man.
-Ten seconds left.
-One more. One more. Just one more.
And that's time. OK, we were looking for Liam Neeson films.
I now need three answers.
-Mutiny On The Bounty.
-Mutiny On The Bounty.
-The Big Man.
-The Big Man.
And there's one what he did about wolves. I'll take a guess at this.
-I'm not really sure on that one.
OK, so Mutiny On The Bounty, The Big Man and The Awakening. There we are.
OK, of those three,
which do you think is your best shot at a pointless answer?
-The Big Man.
-It's got to be.
-The Big Man last.
Which one do you want to put first, your least likely?
-Shall we do the Awakening?
OK, let's pop those up on the board in that order. And here they are.
We have got...
OK, so we were looking for Liam Neeson films.
The Awakening you said was your least confident answer.
Remember, you only have to find one pointless answer
to win that jackpot of £5,000 for Children In Need.
The Awakening - is it right, how may people said it?
No. OK, that would have been surprising if that was right.
By the end of the show you'll remember what it's called.
-He'll text me at two in the morning.
-When Richard tells us.
OK, so not a pointless answer.
You only have two more chances to win that jackpot.
So, we are looking for Liam Neeson films.
Let's hope nobody said your next answer
Mutiny On The Bounty. This has to be right
and it has to be pointless for you to win that jackpot of £5,000.
OK, let's see how many people said Mutiny On The Bounty.
-It's The Bounty.
-They shortened it, yeah.
You only have one more chance to win today's jackpot.
If you want to relieve the tension,
now might be a good time to make a donation
to BBC Children In Need.
Go to bbc.co.uk/pudsey and click on donate.
Actually, don't do it quite now. Wait until after this.
It could be very exciting.
-This feels like a winning answer.
-It's got to be.
We are looking for Liam Neeson films.
Your third and final answer was The Big Man.
This was your most confident shot at a pointless answer.
For £5,000 for Children In Need this has to be pointless.
Very, very best of luck.
The Big Man - is it pointless, how many people said it?
Oh, my gosh.
It's right. It's right. OK, down it goes.
Into this 60s, into the 50s, down into the 40s.
Down through the 30s, 20s, teens.
Into single figures. Still going down. Down it goes.
Yes! You've done it!
Very, very well done.
Thank you, Alexander.
Congratulations. That's all we needed.
The Big Man was a pointless answer which means that you go home
with that jackpot of £5,000 for Children In Need.
Very, very well done indeed. Richard. What about that?
Oh, terrific work, guys.
What a lovely start to Children In Need night.
Pudsey, are you happy? Absolutely delighted.
You're right, it was The Bounty rather than Mutiny On The Bounty.
-That was a pointless answer.
-So it would have been a good one.
The wolves film you're thinking of was The Grey.
-I knew it was the something.
-It would have scored six points.
Let's take a look at some others in case anyone got those at home.
Breakfast On Pluto, another Neil Jordan film.
High Spirits. Those are pointless.
The Woody Allen movie Husbands And Wives,
that would have been pointless.
Kinsey, Lamb, Les Miserables from 1998. That was a pointless answer.
Seraphim Falls the American Civil War movie,
The Mission and Under Suspicion. All of those pointless answers.
Well done if you got those. But very, very well done to you guys.
Fantastic news. Fantastic.
Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant.
Well, thanks once again to our winning players, Perry and Danielle,
who win today's jackpot of £5,000 for BBC Children In Need. Brilliant.
Join us next time
when we'll be putting more obscure knowledge to the test on Pointless.
Meanwhile, it's goodbye from Richard and Pudsey.
And it's goodbye from me. Goodbye.
