CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:00:200:00:22

Thank you. I'm Alexander Armstrong.

0:00:240:00:27

Welcome to a celebrity edition of Pointless,

0:00:270:00:30

the quiz show that puts obscure knowledge to the test.

0:00:300:00:33

Every question has been asked to 100 people before the show.

0:00:330:00:37

For a chance to win our jackpot, our celebrities need to come up with

0:00:370:00:40

the answers that the fewest people could think of.

0:00:400:00:43

Let's meet our Pointless celebrities.

0:00:430:00:46

APPLAUSE

0:00:460:00:48

Please welcome Gemma Bissix and Jeremy Edwards!

0:00:500:00:54

CHEERING

0:00:540:00:56

We know you, Jeremy, from Holby and Hollyoaks

0:00:590:01:02

and Gemma from Hollyoaks and EastEnders.

0:01:020:01:05

-You weren't in Hollyoaks at the same time though.

-Unfortunately not.

0:01:050:01:08

-But you've worked together?

-Yes, we were on Dancing On Ice together

0:01:080:01:12

and also we both voiced The Lovers' Guide...

0:01:120:01:16

in 3D.

0:01:160:01:17

You voiced it in 3D?! What's The Lovers' Guide?

0:01:170:01:21

It's like a sex-education video...

0:01:210:01:24

-Yeah, "education".

-It was the only voice-over left on the shelf

0:01:240:01:28

after you'd cleaned up with all the others.

0:01:280:01:31

-Although me and Xander are doing this year's version.

-Are you?!

0:01:310:01:34

Well, welcome to the show. Very best of luck.

0:01:340:01:38

Next, please welcome Tony Mortimer and Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards!

0:01:380:01:42

APPLAUSE AND WHOOPING The stance, Eddie, the stance.

0:01:420:01:46

Eddie, we know you from the 1988 Winter Olympics,

0:01:490:01:53

the star of Calgary, where he represented Britain in ski jumping.

0:01:530:01:57

Tony was part of East 17,

0:01:570:02:00

had 18 top-twenty hits.

0:02:000:02:02

18! How do you two know each other?

0:02:020:02:05

We met on Winter Wipeout. He came first and I came second.

0:02:050:02:09

-Ahh.

-I won something for a change!

0:02:090:02:11

He did, he won. We let him win.

0:02:110:02:14

-Thank you!

-Lovely having you on the show.

0:02:140:02:18

Please welcome Graham Cole and Derek Martin.

0:02:180:02:21

APPLAUSE AND CHEERING

0:02:210:02:24

Graham, we know you from playing PC Tony Stamp in The Bill

0:02:260:02:30

and, Derek, we know from playing Charlie Slater in EastEnders.

0:02:300:02:34

What's going to be your area of expertise, Graham?

0:02:340:02:37

I wish. This is why I said yes when Derek was my partner,

0:02:370:02:41

because he is the font of all knowledge, being that much older.

0:02:410:02:45

-That doesn't necessarily be the right thing...

-I know a lot about a lot of things,

0:02:450:02:50

but nothing in depth about anything, as you find out very soon.

0:02:500:02:55

-Anything you don't want to come up?

-Yeah, aubergines, I don't like them.

0:02:550:02:58

OK, if aubergines comes up, that is a disaster.

0:02:580:03:03

THEY ALL LAUGH

0:03:030:03:05

Graham and Derek, a very warm welcome to the show.

0:03:050:03:09

Finally, Terry Christian and Janice Long!

0:03:090:03:12

-CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

-How about that?!

0:03:120:03:15

Terry, we know you...

0:03:160:03:18

We know from The Word and, more recently, Celebrity Big Brother.

0:03:180:03:21

-And Janice...

-You just missed out years of my career there!

0:03:210:03:25

Yeah, we've top and tailed it. A lot of radio as well.

0:03:250:03:29

The man who launched every big band in Manchester.

0:03:290:03:32

-There wasn't a band that didn't get its first radio play from you.

-Not since '88.

0:03:320:03:37

Unless it was Janice, of course. The doyenne of the airwaves.

0:03:370:03:41

Top Of The Pops, Radio 1, Radio 2 -

0:03:410:03:44

so you've got music completely sorted between you.

0:03:440:03:47

-Not necessarily. There are gaps.

-Obscure music.

0:03:470:03:50

Well, that's the only kind we're interested in, obviously.

0:03:500:03:53

Terry and Janice, lovely to have you here. A warm welcome.

0:03:530:03:57

We look forward to discovering all your hidden knowledge.

0:03:570:04:00

Only one person left to introduce -

0:04:000:04:02

a man who knows what spring is like on both Jupiter and Mars -

0:04:020:04:06

my Pointless friend, Richard.

0:04:060:04:08

-Hiya.

-CHEERING

0:04:080:04:10

Round one, I think everyone will be able to have a crack at this,

0:04:150:04:19

it's a nice round.

0:04:190:04:21

Maybe by person seven or eight, it might be tricky,

0:04:210:04:25

but everyone can have a crack at it.

0:04:250:04:27

OK. All our questions have been put to 100 people before the show,

0:04:270:04:32

but we want the answers they didn't get.

0:04:320:04:35

To have a chance of our jackpot,

0:04:350:04:37

you need to score as few points as you can.

0:04:370:04:40

Everyone is trying to find a Pointless answer that no-one knew.

0:04:400:04:45

Each time that happens, we add 250 quid to the jackpot.

0:04:450:04:48

As this is a celebrity edition

0:04:480:04:51

and they're playing for nominated charities,

0:04:510:04:54

we start off with a jackpot of £2,500.

0:04:540:04:57

WHOOPING

0:04:570:05:00

Right, if everyone's ready, let's play Pointless.

0:05:030:05:06

In this round, each of you must give me one answer and you cannot confer.

0:05:100:05:15

Whichever pair has the highest score will be eliminated.

0:05:150:05:18

Give me an incorrect answer, you'll score a maximum of 100 points.

0:05:180:05:23

Our first category today is...

0:05:230:05:26

THEY GROAN

0:05:270:05:29

All decide in your pairs who's going to go first and second.

0:05:290:05:33

Whoever's going first, please step up to the podium.

0:05:340:05:38

OK, let's find out what the question is.

0:05:390:05:43

We gave 100 people 100 seconds

0:05:430:05:45

to name as many...

0:05:450:05:47

..as they could. Richard?

0:05:510:05:53

We want any song that's been the official UK entrant,

0:05:530:05:57

from the first time the UK entered in 1957

0:05:570:06:01

all the way through to and including the 2011 competition.

0:06:010:06:05

Just need the name of the song, not the artist. Throw it in if you wish.

0:06:050:06:09

-Good luck.

-OK, thanks, Richard.

0:06:090:06:12

Gemma and Jeremy, you drew lots earlier and you are going first.

0:06:120:06:17

Gemma, is this good for you?

0:06:170:06:19

Not really. Luckily Jeremy is a gentleman and has let me go first.

0:06:190:06:23

Erm, the only one I know is Gina G -

0:06:230:06:26

Ooh Aah Just A Little Bit.

0:06:260:06:29

-Ooh Aah Just A Little Bit says Gemma.

-# A little bit more!

0:06:290:06:32

Literally, a little bit more there.

0:06:340:06:36

-Or a bit less!

-Let's see if that's right

0:06:360:06:39

and how many of our 100 people said Ooh Aah Just A Little Bit.

0:06:390:06:44

Well, it's right.

0:06:470:06:49

Still going down. Look at that - 3!

0:06:520:06:54

Masterful. A score of 3.

0:06:580:07:01

Well played, Gemma. A good start to your Pointless career.

0:07:030:07:06

She came eighth, but Just A Little Bit was a number-one single.

0:07:060:07:10

Thanks, Richard.

0:07:100:07:12

Tony.

0:07:120:07:14

Is this any good for you?

0:07:140:07:16

No.

0:07:180:07:20

I'm going to go for

0:07:210:07:23

Save All Your Kisses For Me - Brotherhood Of Man.

0:07:230:07:26

Save All Your Kisses For Me says Tony.

0:07:260:07:29

Let's see if that's right and how many people said it.

0:07:290:07:33

He's right.

0:07:360:07:38

12.

0:07:420:07:44

Not bad, Tony. 12.

0:07:460:07:48

Save All Your Kisses For Me.

0:07:480:07:50

Yeah, it won the contest in 1976.

0:07:500:07:52

-It's actually Save Your Kisses For Me, but I gave it to you.

-I love you.

0:07:520:07:56

Now, then, Derek, we come to you.

0:07:560:07:59

Eurovision.

0:07:590:08:01

Bucks Fizz, I'm thinking.

0:08:010:08:04

-Mm-hm.

-Cheryl Baker.

0:08:040:08:06

Yeah, I know who's in it!

0:08:060:08:08

-She's been on the show, Cheryl Baker.

-She has.

0:08:090:08:12

I can't think of the title of it.

0:08:120:08:15

-Those Were The Days... No.

-No.

0:08:150:08:17

-No, I've got a blank.

-Do you want to submit Those Were The Days?

-Yes.

0:08:220:08:27

Let's see if that's right and if it is, how many of our 100 said it.

0:08:270:08:32

-No.

-Oh!

0:08:350:08:38

-Bad luck, Derek.

-What was it?

-We won't be able to say

0:08:380:08:41

in case anyone else wants to answer it.

0:08:410:08:44

I'm afraid that's a wrong answer, which means you score 100 points.

0:08:440:08:48

-Richard?

-Those Were The Days was Mary Hopkin.

0:08:480:08:51

Sounds like a Eurovision song, but it wasn't.

0:08:510:08:55

-When he said it, I thought "Ooh, yeah."

-We were only after a title.

0:08:550:08:59

-Oh, yeah.

-We'd've given you that if it had been right.

0:08:590:09:02

Janice, what are you whistling in your head at the moment?

0:09:020:09:06

My mum was a huge fan of this artist,

0:09:060:09:09

so I knew of her when I was little

0:09:090:09:12

and I think I'm right in saying the Irish singer Clodagh Rogers

0:09:120:09:16

was in the Eurovision Song Contest with Jack In The Box.

0:09:160:09:21

-Jack In The Box.

-Yeah.

-Jack In The Box says Janice.

0:09:210:09:25

Let's see if that's right and how many of our 100 people said it.

0:09:250:09:29

It's right.

0:09:310:09:33

It's right. Down it goes.

0:09:350:09:37

Yes!

0:09:380:09:40

No less than I was expecting!

0:09:400:09:43

Our first Pointless of the day - it adds 250 quid to the jackpot,

0:09:430:09:47

takes the total up to...

0:09:470:09:49

It scores you nothing. Brilliant answer, Janice, well done.

0:09:500:09:54

Very well played. They mean business on podium four.

0:09:540:09:57

From 1971, she came fourth with Jack In The Box.

0:09:570:10:01

Well done. And your mum as well.

0:10:010:10:03

Halfway through the round, let's look at the scores.

0:10:030:10:06

Janice and Terry looking so strong there, lovely low score of nothing.

0:10:060:10:11

Up to 3 where we find Gemma and Jeremy.

0:10:110:10:14

12 finds Tony and Eddie

0:10:140:10:17

and it's 100 for Derek and Graham.

0:10:170:10:19

-Graham...

-We finish strong.

0:10:190:10:22

We need a brilliant answer from you to somehow keep you in the game.

0:10:220:10:26

Best of luck. Can the second players take their places at the podium?

0:10:260:10:31

Ok, now, Terry,

0:10:340:10:36

-this has to be good for you.

-I can remember...

0:10:360:10:39

I used to fancy Clodagh Rogers. When I was about seven.

0:10:390:10:43

Hot pants and all that. And Irish, like me mum and dad.

0:10:430:10:46

Why are you wearing hot pants at seven?!

0:10:460:10:50

Shh!

0:10:500:10:51

Don't mind kids are watching this!

0:10:510:10:54

-Terry, what are you going to say?

-Erm... Knock, Knock Who's There?

0:10:540:10:58

Knock, Knock Who's There? Let's see if it's right and how many said it.

0:10:580:11:02

Graham and Derek are on 100. Terry and Janice have nothing.

0:11:020:11:06

-If you can score 99 or less, you're through.

-Mary Hopkin.

0:11:060:11:10

Knock, Knock Who's There?

0:11:100:11:13

Mary Hopkin.

0:11:130:11:15

Absolutely right. You're through.

0:11:170:11:20

Very well done! It's 1!

0:11:240:11:27

Nearly Pointless, Terry.

0:11:290:11:32

Scored you 1 - takes your total to 1.

0:11:320:11:35

-Terry gutted not to get a Pointless answer.

-I thought it would be.

0:11:350:11:39

She was 1970, the year before Clodagh Rogers, she came second.

0:11:390:11:42

That's the Mary Hopkin song you should've said, Derek.

0:11:420:11:47

Thanks very much, Richard. Now, then...

0:11:470:11:50

Graham. Are you a Eurovision fan?

0:11:500:11:54

No.

0:11:540:11:55

But I sing a lot of songs.

0:11:550:11:57

I wanna try 1966, I don't know who sang it,

0:11:570:12:00

I think it was Gavin O'Connor, and I don't know what it's called,

0:12:000:12:04

but it goes # Looking high, high, high

0:12:040:12:07

# I once had a love and oh I loved her very dearly...

0:12:070:12:10

Once had a laughing dog?

0:12:100:12:12

# I thought she spoke sincerely but then one day away

0:12:120:12:16

# She said that she had flown

0:12:160:12:18

# And off to find her lover I went alone

0:12:180:12:21

# Looking high... # I think it's called Looking High.

0:12:210:12:24

I hope it's called Looking High, High, High.

0:12:240:12:27

-Looking High, High, High.

-Or something very similar.

0:12:270:12:30

If not, can I have something for the song?

0:12:300:12:33

Yeah... Let's see if that's right, Looking High, High, High -

0:12:330:12:37

how many people said it?

0:12:370:12:39

Absolutely right.

0:12:400:12:43

Whoa! Very good. 2.

0:12:470:12:50

Well done, well done.

0:12:500:12:52

-Well done.

-2 for you, Graham.

0:12:520:12:54

-Brilliant answer.

-Thank you, my Redcoat days!

0:12:550:12:59

That takes your total to 102. Richard?

0:12:590:13:02

Looking High, High, High by Bryan Johnson. Do you know what year?

0:13:020:13:05

From AC/DC?

0:13:050:13:08

-Was it '66?

-It was '60.

0:13:080:13:10

-Oh, '60.

-Over 50 years ago.

0:13:100:13:13

He's older than he looks.

0:13:130:13:15

I was eight.

0:13:150:13:17

Thanks very much, Richard.

0:13:170:13:19

Now, Eddie, we come to you. Your score is 12.

0:13:190:13:23

The high scorers, on 102, are Graham and Derek.

0:13:230:13:26

If you can score 89 or less,

0:13:260:13:28

you're in the next round.

0:13:280:13:30

Fly High.

0:13:320:13:34

-No idea.

-Fly High.

0:13:340:13:36

Fly High...

0:13:360:13:38

OK, Eddie. Fly High. Let's see if that's right

0:13:380:13:42

and how many people said it. Here's your red line - quite high.

0:13:420:13:46

Ohhh. Bad luck, Eddie.

0:13:490:13:51

I'm afraid, cracking song though it would be, it...

0:13:510:13:55

-no-one's yet released it.

-I'll go and write it now.

-Yeah, quick.

0:13:550:13:59

Enter it next year. That scores you 100 points,

0:13:590:14:02

takes your total up to 112.

0:14:020:14:05

You are our high scorers.

0:14:050:14:07

Now, Jeremy, you're through.

0:14:070:14:10

Let's have a brilliant answer.

0:14:100:14:12

There might be another Pointless answer

0:14:120:14:15

that will add to the kitty.

0:14:150:14:17

Yeah... No, there isn't in my head.

0:14:170:14:20

I have a safe answer, but if we're through anyway -

0:14:200:14:23

-can I say my safe answer?

-Why not?

0:14:230:14:26

It was Making Your Mind Up

0:14:260:14:28

-by Bucks Fizz.

-Making Your Mind Up.

0:14:280:14:31

-But I'm gonna go for Puppet On A String by Sandie Shaw.

-Oh, a double entry!

0:14:310:14:35

-Well, if that's all right.

-OK.

0:14:350:14:37

Puppet On A String says Jeremy.

0:14:370:14:40

Let's see if that's right and how many of our 100 people said it.

0:14:400:14:44

40.

0:14:520:14:53

40 takes your total to 43.

0:14:530:14:56

Very solid answer. Sandie Shaw.

0:14:590:15:02

It's a bigger score than Making Your Mind Up. The biggest of all,

0:15:020:15:05

of anything in this list.

0:15:050:15:08

Let's look at some of the Pointless answers.

0:15:080:15:11

A Message To Your Heart - that was Samantha Janus, now Womack.

0:15:120:15:16

Beg, Steal Or Borrow - the New Seekers, just after Clodagh Rogers.

0:15:160:15:20

Don't Play That Song Again - Nicki French.

0:15:200:15:23

A hostage to fortune, calling a song that.

0:15:230:15:26

Like calling a quiz show Pointless.

0:15:260:15:28

-Yeah.

-Let's look at the next page.

0:15:280:15:31

Even If - that was Andy Abraham.

0:15:310:15:33

There's Jack In The Box that we had from Janice.

0:15:330:15:36

Long Live Love - Olivia Newton-John. She was the UK entrant.

0:15:360:15:41

No Dream Impossible - that was Lindsay D in 2001, of course.

0:15:410:15:45

Say It Again, which was Precious.

0:15:450:15:48

And Touch My Fire by Javine,

0:15:480:15:50

which contravenes all sorts of health and safety regulations.

0:15:500:15:54

There we are. Thanks, Richard.

0:15:540:15:56

So the losing pair with the highest score - it's Eddie and Tony.

0:15:560:16:00

Not bad. We got the highest score.

0:16:000:16:03

Yeah, you did. Exactly.

0:16:030:16:05

The highest score. Well done. Thank you very much.

0:16:050:16:08

Eddie and Tony, we have to say goodbye, thank you for playing,

0:16:080:16:13

-brilliant contestants.

-APPLAUSE

0:16:130:16:16

But for the remaining pairs, it's now time for round two.

0:16:170:16:21

Now, there's only room for two pairs in the head-to-head,

0:16:260:16:29

so one team will be leaving us at the end of this round.

0:16:290:16:33

OK, our category for round two is...

0:16:330:16:36

Can you all decide who's going to go first and second?

0:16:380:16:41

-Huge category.

-Whoever's going first...

0:16:410:16:43

Yeah, we'll narrow it down.

0:16:430:16:45

Imagine if we didn't!

0:16:450:16:48

Whoever's going first, please step up to the podium.

0:16:480:16:52

OK, and the question concerns...

0:16:540:16:56

-Richard?

-On each pass, we'll show you six descriptions

0:16:590:17:02

of famous people called Alex, Alexander or Alexandra.

0:17:020:17:06

An obscure answer will score you fewer points,

0:17:060:17:10

but an incorrect answer will score 100. 12 descriptions in all,

0:17:100:17:14

12 Alexes to guess at home.

0:17:140:17:16

Thanks, Richard.

0:17:160:17:18

Now, then, here is our first board of Alexes.

0:17:180:17:21

We have got - author of The Beach,

0:17:210:17:24

widely credited as the inventor of the telephone,

0:17:240:17:27

beat JLS to win the X Factor in 2008,

0:17:270:17:31

the Russian winner of 1970 Nobel Prize in Literature,

0:17:310:17:35

became leader of the Scottish National Party in 1990

0:17:350:17:38

and the 18th century poet who translated the works of Homer.

0:17:380:17:43

And I will read all of those again.

0:17:430:17:46

Now, then. Gemma.

0:18:050:18:07

I'm so petrified that I've had to go first twice!

0:18:070:18:11

I only know one on that board

0:18:110:18:13

and it's probably going to be quite high.

0:18:130:18:17

Alexandra Burke beat JLS to win The X Factor in 2008.

0:18:170:18:20

Let's see if it's right and how many of our 100 people knew it -

0:18:200:18:25

Alexandra Burke.

0:18:250:18:27

-29.

-It's OK, it's OK.

0:18:340:18:36

29 for Alexandra Burke.

0:18:400:18:42

Good answer. Gina G and Alexandra Burke have seen you through.

0:18:420:18:47

She had a Christmas number one that year with Hallelujah.

0:18:470:18:50

Thanks very much. Now, then, Graham.

0:18:500:18:53

Oh, my goodness.

0:18:530:18:55

How are these Alexes?

0:18:550:18:57

Author of The Beach I might guess.

0:18:570:18:59

Inventor of the telephone - that's going to be massive.

0:18:590:19:03

Ooh, translater of the works of Homer...

0:19:030:19:06

Oh, please...

0:19:060:19:08

I think it's going to be high and I apologise, Derek.

0:19:080:19:11

Became leader of the Scottish National Party in 1990 -

0:19:110:19:14

Alex... Salmond? Is that how you pronounce his name?

0:19:140:19:18

Alex Salmond, I'll take that.

0:19:180:19:20

Let's see if that's right and how many people knew that answer.

0:19:200:19:24

Absolutely right.

0:19:260:19:28

Keep going, keep going, keep going...

0:19:280:19:31

Still going... 37.

0:19:310:19:33

-37, that's all right.

-Nothing wrong with that.

0:19:330:19:36

37 for Alex Salmond.

0:19:370:19:39

Yeah, well played, Graham. First became an MP in 1987, Alex Salmond.

0:19:390:19:43

Janice, you're the last person to have this board,

0:19:430:19:46

so you can talk us through it.

0:19:460:19:49

I've read The Beach and I can't remember who wrote it

0:19:490:19:52

and I think the book was better than the film.

0:19:520:19:55

I know who invented the telephone.

0:19:550:19:58

I'm thinking I know who...

0:20:000:20:03

..who won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1970,

0:20:030:20:06

but I'm not sure.

0:20:060:20:08

And I know, somewhere in the back of my mind,

0:20:080:20:11

who did Homer because we did it at school.

0:20:110:20:14

But I'm scared of hazarding a guess...

0:20:140:20:17

-Shall we swap?

-Yeah, can we?!

0:20:170:20:20

-I might have to go for the obvious one, forgive me.

-Mm-hm.

0:20:200:20:23

Er... Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone.

0:20:230:20:27

Alexander Graham Bell says Janice.

0:20:270:20:31

Let's see if it's right and how many people knew that answer.

0:20:310:20:34

It's right... Oi!

0:20:370:20:39

Blimey. 85.

0:20:400:20:42

-I should've gone with...

-85.

0:20:460:20:49

It's a big score, isn't it?

0:20:490:20:51

I should've taken a chance.

0:20:510:20:53

Well, we'll find out. I will test you in a moment.

0:20:530:20:57

Debate rages as to whether he invented it, but he got the patent.

0:20:570:21:01

Who would you have gone for for the Russian one?

0:21:010:21:04

-Solzhenitsyn.

-Solzhenitsyn, absolutely right.

0:21:040:21:07

-Damn.

-Would've scored 18 points.

0:21:070:21:10

-I should've done it.

-Did you have a thought for the 18th century poet?

0:21:100:21:15

-Pope for the...

-Alexandra Pope.

0:21:150:21:18

Alexander Pope, sorry. Would've scored 4 points.

0:21:180:21:21

-The author of The Beach...

-Can't remember.

-Alex Garland.

0:21:210:21:25

Alex Garland. Would've scored 7 points.

0:21:250:21:27

-I should've gone with Solzhenitsyn.

-Me too. But I got scared.

0:21:270:21:30

Let's look at those scores. Best score of the round, Gemma.

0:21:300:21:34

Gemma and Jeremy, once again.

0:21:340:21:36

Up to 37, where we find Graham and Derek,

0:21:360:21:39

-then...

-A fall.

-Ohh...

0:21:390:21:43

-Bit of an aberration.

-I should've taken a chance, but I was scared.

0:21:430:21:48

Terry, you get pick of the next board...

0:21:480:21:51

I wanna go back and have pick of that one!

0:21:510:21:54

Well, you tidied up there.

0:21:540:21:56

You did pretty well. And, Janice, you knew that lovely low score.

0:21:560:22:00

Anyway, anything could happen in the next pass.

0:22:000:22:03

Can the second players please take their places at the podium?

0:22:030:22:07

OK, six more Alexes on the board.

0:22:090:22:12

We have got -

0:22:120:22:14

frontman of the Arctic Monkeys,

0:22:140:22:16

Scottish bacteriologist who discovered penicillin,

0:22:160:22:19

voice of Family Guy's Lois Griffin,

0:22:190:22:22

married Katie Price in 2010,

0:22:220:22:25

author of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency

0:22:250:22:28

and became manager of Manchester United in 1986.

0:22:280:22:33

I'm going to read that again.

0:22:330:22:35

You're trying to find the one the fewest of our 100 people knew.

0:22:470:22:51

Terry, you're the high scorers, you can do something about that.

0:22:510:22:55

Erm, Scottish bacteriologist who discovered penicillin -

0:22:550:22:59

-Alexander Fleming.

-Fleming says Terry.

0:22:590:23:01

Let's see. No red line for you as you are the high scorers.

0:23:010:23:05

Just gotta hope this goes down as far as it can. Fleming.

0:23:050:23:09

Absolutely right.

0:23:110:23:13

40.

0:23:150:23:18

40, takes your score up to 125.

0:23:200:23:24

-Richard.

-Yeah, a big score, Terry.

0:23:240:23:26

I suspect there's others on the board you know though.

0:23:260:23:30

Now, then, Derek. The high scorers are Terry and Janice on 125.

0:23:300:23:35

You're on 37, so a score of 87 or less

0:23:350:23:38

will get you into the next round.

0:23:380:23:40

The bottom one, Alex Ferguson, I'll go for that.

0:23:410:23:45

-You're going Alex Ferguson.

-Probably be 100.

0:23:450:23:48

You get below that red line,

0:23:480:23:51

you are through to the next round. That line is 87.

0:23:510:23:55

Let's see. Alex Ferguson - how many of our 100 people said it?

0:23:550:23:59

You've done it. 75.

0:24:020:24:04

Obvious.

0:24:070:24:09

75 for Alex Ferguson.

0:24:090:24:11

Takes your total to 112. You are in the head-to-head.

0:24:110:24:14

-Richard?

-Very well played, Derek.

0:24:140:24:17

OK, Jeremy. The high scorers are still Terry and Janice on 125.

0:24:170:24:22

You're on 29. You're the last person to have the board,

0:24:220:24:25

so fill in the gaps for us.

0:24:250:24:27

Erm, I can only fill in one, I'm ashamed to say,

0:24:270:24:30

which is Alex Reid, who married Katie Price,

0:24:300:24:33

but I'm going with Alex Turner as the frontman of the Arctic Monkeys.

0:24:330:24:38

Alex Turner, frontman of the Arctic Monkeys.

0:24:380:24:41

Let's see how many people said Alex Turner.

0:24:410:24:44

Yep, absolutely right.

0:24:470:24:49

5!

0:24:540:24:56

Fantastic. Well done.

0:24:560:24:59

5 for Alex Turner takes your total up to 34.

0:24:590:25:03

Well played. Good answer. Two good answers, in fact.

0:25:040:25:07

-Terry, you weren't tempted by Alex Turner?

-I'm gutted!

0:25:070:25:10

I'm such a sore loser.

0:25:100:25:13

You know what? You surprise me.

0:25:130:25:15

-Big family - very competitive.

-Alex Turner would've seen you through.

0:25:150:25:19

Last time we mentioned Arctic Monkeys on the show,

0:25:190:25:22

Matt Helders, the drummer, his mum tweeted in.

0:25:220:25:26

-No!

-Yeah. Say hello to Matt Helders' mum.

0:25:260:25:29

Aw! Hi, Matt Helders' mum.

0:25:290:25:31

-Hi.

-Let's fill in the board.

0:25:320:25:35

Married Katie Price in 2010, you're right, Jeremy, it was Alex Reid. 31.

0:25:350:25:40

-The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency author?

-Alexander McCall Smith?

0:25:400:25:44

Is exactly right. 7 points.

0:25:440:25:46

The voice of Family Guy's Lois Griffin is a Pointless answer.

0:25:460:25:50

Very well done if you said Alex Borstein. Alex Borstein.

0:25:500:25:53

Very well done if you got all 12 Alexes.

0:25:530:25:57

Thank you. So, at the end of round two,

0:25:570:26:00

the losing celebrity pair - I can't bear this - it's Terry and Janice.

0:26:000:26:05

That'll teach me. I should've just taken that chance.

0:26:050:26:09

Terry and Janice, it's been lovely having you on the show. Thank you.

0:26:090:26:14

-Sorry we have to say goodbye.

-APPLAUSE

0:26:140:26:16

For the remaining pairs, things are about to get more exciting,

0:26:160:26:20

as we enter the head-to-head.

0:26:200:26:22

Congratulations, Gemma and Jeremy, Graham and Derek,

0:26:260:26:30

you are one round from the final and a chance to play for the jackpot,

0:26:300:26:34

which stands at...

0:26:340:26:37

You're going head-to-head. The first pair to win two questions

0:26:420:26:45

will play for that jackpot.

0:26:450:26:47

You are now allowed to confer.

0:26:470:26:50

Let's play the head-to-head.

0:26:500:26:52

So here comes your first question

0:26:570:27:00

and it concerns...

0:27:000:27:03

-Richard?

-You'll see five pictures

0:27:050:27:07

of characters who've appeared on The Muppet Show.

0:27:070:27:11

Can you name the most obscure?

0:27:110:27:13

OK, now, then, Gemma and Jeremy,

0:27:130:27:15

you've played best so you get to go first.

0:27:150:27:18

Let's reveal our five Muppets. We have got...

0:27:180:27:22

There we are. Five Muppets.

0:27:350:27:38

Gemma and Jeremy, you go first.

0:27:390:27:41

THEY WHISPER

0:27:410:27:44

I know C and that's the most...

0:27:440:27:46

-OK.

-Right.

0:27:490:27:51

-Tactics.

-You've got an answer?

0:27:510:27:54

We do, yes. We're playing it safe

0:27:540:27:57

in the hope that they have no knowledge of the Muppets,

0:27:570:28:00

because our other answer is dubious.

0:28:000:28:03

-So we're going with C - Miss Piggy.

-C - Miss Piggy say Gemma and Jeremy.

0:28:030:28:07

C - Miss Piggy.

0:28:070:28:09

Graham and Derek, oh, they've misjudged you!

0:28:090:28:12

Oh, no! No, I think they've got us sussed.

0:28:120:28:15

But I am a Muppets fan. I love, love, love them.

0:28:150:28:19

Talk us through the Muppets.

0:28:190:28:21

It's only cos he fancies Miss Piggy.

0:28:210:28:24

Well, I think B is Rowlf.

0:28:250:28:27

-Go for yours.

-I'm going for B.

0:28:270:28:29

-Rowlf. Please be Rowlf.

-B - Rowlf.

0:28:290:28:32

Holding an early prototype of the iPad there.

0:28:320:28:35

So we have Miss Piggy and we have Rowlf.

0:28:370:28:40

Gemma and Jeremy have said Miss Piggy for C.

0:28:400:28:44

Let's see if that's right and how many people said it.

0:28:440:28:47

Oi! Wow. 93.

0:28:510:28:53

Graham and Derek have said that B is Rowlf.

0:29:000:29:04

Let's see if that's right and how many people said it.

0:29:040:29:08

It's right.

0:29:100:29:12

And it beats Miss Piggy.

0:29:120:29:14

It really beats Miss Piggy.

0:29:140:29:17

12!

0:29:170:29:18

Very, very well said, Graham.

0:29:180:29:21

-Well done.

-Misspent youth.

0:29:210:29:24

That means, after one question,

0:29:250:29:27

you are up one-nil. Richard.

0:29:270:29:30

Yes, singer and pianist.

0:29:300:29:32

Told Kermit his motto was "Stay away from women." Let's go through them.

0:29:320:29:36

-A is... Do you know A?

-Animal.

0:29:360:29:39

Animal, of course.

0:29:390:29:41

That would've scored you 43 points.

0:29:410:29:43

D is the only one that would've beaten Rowlf on the whole board.

0:29:430:29:47

Er, and that is Sweetums.

0:29:470:29:50

2 points. Looking not unlike Terry Christian when he got knocked off.

0:29:500:29:54

What were you going to go for for E?

0:29:560:29:58

-Gunther.

-No, it's Beaker.

0:29:580:30:01

Beaker. Would've scored 15 anyway.

0:30:010:30:03

Well done if you got all five. Sweetums the best answer.

0:30:030:30:07

Thanks, Richard. Here comes your second question.

0:30:070:30:10

It concerns...

0:30:100:30:13

-Japan, Richard.

-We'll give you five clues to facts about Japan.

0:30:160:30:20

Give us the most obscure answer.

0:30:200:30:22

OK, here come five clues to facts about Japan. We have got -

0:30:220:30:27

its highest mountain, its largest island, main unit of currency,

0:30:270:30:30

the name of emperor who succeeded Hirohito in 1989

0:30:300:30:34

and its internet top-level domain.

0:30:340:30:37

I'll read those one last time.

0:30:370:30:39

Graham and Derek, you go first this time.

0:30:500:30:53

THEY WHISPER

0:30:530:30:55

That sounds a good answer to me.

0:30:550:30:58

I think, because you're so sure, go for your first one.

0:30:580:31:02

We'll go for the highest mountain - Mount Fujiyama.

0:31:020:31:06

Mount Fujiyama.

0:31:060:31:08

Mount Fujiyama say Derek and Graham.

0:31:080:31:11

Gemma and Jeremy, you can talk us through the board.

0:31:110:31:15

I wish we could! The only one I know is the currency - yen.

0:31:150:31:19

Yeah. I don't even understand "its internet top-level domain".

0:31:190:31:24

-It's just words.

-Does that mean it'll be "jp" or something?

0:31:240:31:28

The currency won't be bigger than the mountain,

0:31:290:31:32

-so shall we take a punt at something else?

-Yeah.

0:31:320:31:35

Can we punt and say Nagasaki for largest island?

0:31:350:31:39

Nagasaki - largest island.

0:31:390:31:41

Yes, you can.

0:31:410:31:43

-Thank you!

-So Graham and Derek...

-The trophy's getting further away!

0:31:430:31:48

Graham and Derek said Mount Fujiyama, the highest mountain.

0:31:480:31:51

Let's see if that's right and how many people said it.

0:31:510:31:54

Absolutely right.

0:31:570:31:59

Come on, go, go, go...

0:31:590:32:01

-36.

-Yes! Well done, Derek.

0:32:010:32:04

36.

0:32:040:32:07

Gemma and Jeremy have said Nagasaki as the name of its largest island.

0:32:090:32:14

It's a bit of a shot in the dark.

0:32:140:32:16

Let's see if that's right.

0:32:160:32:18

Oh, bad luck, Gemma and Jeremy, an incorrect answer,

0:32:210:32:24

which means, after two questions,

0:32:240:32:27

Graham and Derek storm into a lead there.

0:32:270:32:30

Two-nil. Straight through to the final.

0:32:300:32:33

-Richard.

-The hare and the tortoise!

0:32:330:32:35

The largest island is Honshu. It's where you find Mount Fujiyama.

0:32:350:32:39

Honshu would've scored you 9 points.

0:32:390:32:41

-Now, Gemma, you said Jeremy was the clever one.

-Yes.

0:32:410:32:45

-Remind me, your answer for the internet top-level domain.

-jp.

0:32:450:32:49

-Would be correct answer...

-No!

0:32:490:32:51

..and would've scored you 10 points.

0:32:510:32:54

That was just process... Oh, no! We could've just gone for it.

0:32:540:32:57

Would've been worth a gamble.

0:32:570:33:00

I feel like committing harakiri.

0:33:000:33:02

The main unit of currency is yen.

0:33:020:33:04

It would've been crazy to go for - 88 points.

0:33:040:33:08

You also would've won with the emperor who succeeded Hirohito.

0:33:080:33:12

It's Akihito and it's 5 points, so that's the best answer on the board.

0:33:120:33:17

.jp.

0:33:170:33:19

So the losing pair - Gemma and Jeremy!

0:33:190:33:22

You've played so well throughout...

0:33:220:33:25

-We're the two biggest fans of the show!

-And you had jp!

0:33:250:33:28

But we got this far.

0:33:280:33:30

-So, Gemma and Jeremy, thank you for playing.

-Thank you.

-Thank you.

0:33:300:33:35

But, for Graham and Derek, it's now time for our Pointless final.

0:33:360:33:41

Congratulations, Graham and Derek, you've seen off the competition

0:33:450:33:49

and you've won our coveted Pointless trophy.

0:33:490:33:52

You now have a chance to win the jackpot and the jackpot stands at...

0:33:570:34:02

CHEERING AND WHOOPING

0:34:040:34:06

Did you ever think you would end up here?

0:34:090:34:12

Yes.

0:34:120:34:14

-Very exciting.

-Very exciting.

0:34:140:34:17

Well, you've ended up in the final.

0:34:170:34:20

The rules are very simple - to win that money for your charities,

0:34:200:34:24

you have to find a Pointless answer. We've had one from Janice.

0:34:240:34:29

Find one more and you will go home with that money for your charities.

0:34:290:34:33

First, you've got to choose a category. You have five options...

0:34:330:34:37

I'm in your hands, Derek.

0:34:450:34:48

-I'd go for two - Adventure Movies...

-Adventure Movies.

-..and Formula 1.

0:34:480:34:53

-Pop Divas - wouldn't know.

-Artists...

0:34:530:34:56

-Go with your first one.

-No, go on.

-I'd go for Adventure Movies.

0:34:560:34:59

-And you can hit me if I'm wrong.

-Yeah, we'll go for that.

0:34:590:35:03

And Formula 1. There's got to be three?

0:35:030:35:06

-No, just one.

-Oh, just one! I thought there was three!

0:35:060:35:10

No, just one. It's easy.

0:35:100:35:12

-Adventure Movies.

-Adventure Movies it is. OK.

0:35:120:35:16

Here comes the question.

0:35:160:35:18

We gave 100 people 100 seconds to name as many...

0:35:180:35:22

..as they could. Richard.

0:35:240:35:26

Any actor who's received a credit

0:35:260:35:28

in any of the four Indiana Jones movies according to IMDb, please.

0:35:280:35:33

Any actor who receives an acting credit for any of those movies.

0:35:330:35:37

-Are you ready?

-Yes.

0:35:370:35:39

Let's put 60 seconds on the clock.

0:35:390:35:41

-There it is.

-Sean Connery.

0:35:410:35:43

-Your times starts...

-Yes, but...

-Your time starts...

0:35:430:35:47

-..now!

-What about Djamali? Whathisface Djamali?

0:35:470:35:50

David Yip, who I worked with on The Chinese Detective,

0:35:500:35:55

he was in it and he got a credit.

0:35:550:35:57

OK. But I don't know Djamali's other name.

0:35:570:36:00

And who are any of the girls?

0:36:000:36:03

-Presumably we can't say Mr Ford, can we?

-No, no, no.

0:36:030:36:07

-Silly, no.

-So thingy Djamali...

0:36:070:36:10

-Who else? Come on.

-Rhys...

0:36:100:36:12

-Erm...

-Witherspoon?

-Welshman. No.

0:36:120:36:14

No, big, gruff voice.

0:36:140:36:17

Rhys Jones. John Rhys...

0:36:170:36:20

John Rhys... Rhys Jones.

0:36:200:36:23

Big feller. He played an Arab.

0:36:240:36:26

We've got 20 seconds and we've named three.

0:36:260:36:30

-We can't say "the Arab feller".

-No.

0:36:300:36:32

-It's John Rhys...

-Come on, come on.

0:36:320:36:35

-This is ridiculous.

-Ten seconds.

0:36:350:36:37

David Yip, John Rhys Jones and...

0:36:370:36:40

And Djamali, whatever his name is,

0:36:400:36:43

Whatsit Djamali.

0:36:430:36:45

Thingy Djamali.

0:36:450:36:47

Your time is up.

0:36:470:36:49

We're looking for actors in the Indiana Jones film series.

0:36:490:36:52

I now need your three answers.

0:36:520:36:55

-David Yip.

-David Yip.

-Yes.

0:36:550:36:58

-John Rhys Jones.

-John Rhys Jones.

0:36:580:37:01

Or John Rhys-Davies. Hang on.

0:37:010:37:04

-John Rhys-Davies.

-John Rhys-Davies.

-Yes.

0:37:070:37:11

Well, Sean Connery played his dad, but you're saying that's obvious.

0:37:110:37:15

Well, Sean Connery, put him in.

0:37:150:37:18

Sean Connery. Three great answers there.

0:37:180:37:21

Of those three, which is most likely to be Pointless?

0:37:210:37:24

-David Yip.

-We'll put him last.

0:37:240:37:26

-He's a nice man though.

-Yeah.

0:37:260:37:29

Shall we put that on the board too?

0:37:290:37:31

-Which is your least likely? Probably Sean Connery.

-Yeah, put him first.

0:37:310:37:36

-And we'll bung John Rhys-Davies in the middle.

-Yes.

0:37:360:37:39

Let's put them on the board in that order.

0:37:390:37:43

We're looking for actors in the Indiana Jones film series.

0:37:470:37:50

Sean Connery, your least confident answer.

0:37:500:37:53

So let's see how many people said Sean Connery.

0:37:530:37:58

It's right.

0:38:000:38:02

-Still going down.

-Keep going, keep going.

0:38:020:38:05

Still going down into the 30s.

0:38:050:38:08

Into the 20s. 24.

0:38:080:38:10

-24.

-I thought it would've been up there.

0:38:100:38:13

Yeah, yeah!

0:38:130:38:15

Well, that's not a Pointless answer.

0:38:150:38:18

-You'd've been surprised...

-Know why I knew that? I was in that film.

0:38:180:38:21

-Were you credited?

-I've no idea.

0:38:210:38:24

-He got paid.

-Probably at the end. If you stayed long enough.

0:38:240:38:27

-Seriously, your name is on...

-If you stayed long enough, you may find it.

0:38:270:38:31

-I went to the school...

-Why didn't you put your name up?

0:38:310:38:34

-Why didn't you put your name up?

-Richard's not going to have that!

0:38:340:38:38

You thought Sean Connery would score less than you. That's what you mean.

0:38:380:38:43

Oh, right. Well, you only have two more chances to win today's jackpot.

0:38:440:38:49

Now, £2,750. That would go to your charities.

0:38:490:38:52

What are your nominated charities?

0:38:520:38:55

-Mine is the Grand Order Of Water Rats.

-Graham?

0:38:550:38:58

-Age UK.

-Age UK.

0:38:580:39:00

Two excellent, excellent charities.

0:39:000:39:03

We are looking for actors in the Indiana Jones film series.

0:39:050:39:09

Let's hope nobody says your next answer - John Rhys-Davies.

0:39:090:39:14

This has to be Pointless for you to win that jackpot.

0:39:140:39:17

£2,750 riding on it. Let's see how many people said John Rhys-Davies.

0:39:170:39:22

-It's right.

-Come on.

-Sean Connery took us down to 24,

0:39:230:39:28

-surprisingly low.

-Come on, Derek!

0:39:280:39:30

If he can take you down to zero, you win that jackpot for your charities.

0:39:300:39:34

Still going down... Oh, no!

0:39:340:39:36

Ohh, man!

0:39:370:39:40

That's a brilliant answer.

0:39:420:39:44

You only have one more chance to win today's jackpot.

0:39:440:39:48

Maybe David Yip did lots of these things.

0:39:480:39:51

He did... He told me he was going in it.

0:39:510:39:54

But whether it was Romancing The Stone or...

0:39:540:39:57

We're looking for actors in the Indiana Jones film series.

0:39:570:40:01

Your third answer was David Yip, your most confident answer,

0:40:010:40:04

provided he's in this film.

0:40:040:40:06

To win that jackpot of £2,750, this has to be Pointless.

0:40:070:40:11

Let's find out if it is. David Yip -

0:40:110:40:13

is it right? Please be right and please be Pointless.

0:40:130:40:17

It is! David Yip is in it!

0:40:180:40:20

Sean Connery took us down to 24.

0:40:200:40:22

-Come on!

-John Rhys-Davies took us down to 1.

0:40:220:40:25

David Yip, still going down.

0:40:250:40:27

Single figures, down he goes!

0:40:270:40:30

Oh, no!

0:40:300:40:32

-Yes!

-David Yip!

-I don't believe it!

0:40:320:40:36

I thought it was Pointless! I thought it was Pointless!

0:40:360:40:39

I thought it was going...

0:40:390:40:41

-David Yip.

-Oh, man.

0:40:410:40:43

I thought I'd nailed it.

0:40:430:40:46

-I thought you had.

-David Yip. Wait till I tell him.

0:40:460:40:50

Unfortunately, you didn't manage to find that Pointless answer,

0:40:500:40:54

so you don't win the jackpot of £2,750.

0:40:540:40:58

But you do go home with a Pointless trophy each.

0:40:580:41:01

But we are going to donate £500 to each celebrity pair

0:41:010:41:04

for their respective charities.

0:41:040:41:06

Thank you.

0:41:060:41:08

-Graham, were you really in one of the films?

-Yeah.

0:41:130:41:17

-On the credits?

-You would've been a Pointless answer.

0:41:170:41:20

-Was I in the credits, Richard?

-You weren't, I'm afraid. I'm sorry.

0:41:200:41:24

I gave my Russian and everything. In a lift.

0:41:240:41:28

-I think...

-Alexander or you didn't know David Yip was in

0:41:280:41:32

-until you checked.

-I know Yip's in it. I know my David Yip films.

0:41:320:41:36

Oh, right!

0:41:360:41:39

David Yip is Wu Han in the Temple Of Doom.

0:41:390:41:42

John Rhys-Davies was in Raiders Of The Lost Ark and The Last Crusade.

0:41:420:41:46

Let's look at the Pointless answers. Some big names on this list.

0:41:460:41:50

These would've won you the money. Alan Dale was in The Crystal Skull.

0:41:500:41:55

-Alexei Sayle was in The Last Crusade.

-Alfred Molina.

0:41:550:41:58

Alfred Molina was a Pointless answer. In Raiders Of The Lost Ark.

0:41:580:42:02

-It's so simple when you see them up there.

-Alison Doody.

0:42:020:42:06

Anthony Higgins was in Raiders.

0:42:060:42:08

Cate Blanchett was in Crystal Skull and was a Pointless answer.

0:42:080:42:12

-Dan Aykroyd has a cameo in Temple Of Doom.

-Jim Broadbent...

0:42:120:42:16

Jim Broadbent in Crystal Skull. And Karen Allen, unbelievably,

0:42:160:42:20

Indy's love interest in Raiders and Crystal Skull - Pointless answer.

0:42:200:42:24

Well done if you said any of those at home.

0:42:240:42:27

Well, we have to say goodbye, but it's been fabulous having you here.

0:42:270:42:31

Thank you so much for playing. Brilliant, brilliant winners.

0:42:310:42:35

CHEERING

0:42:350:42:37

So, thank you to all our celebrity pairs -
