Thank you very much indeed. I'm Alexander Armstrong. Welcome to a celebrity edition of Pointless,
the quiz show that puts obscure knowledge to the test. Every single question was asked to 100 people.
To be in with a chance of winning our final round jackpot,
our celebrities need to come up with the answers the fewest people could think of.
Let's meet today's Pointless celebrities.
First up, we welcome Jenni Falconer and Matt Johnson!
Now as presenters on ITV's This Morning, you must have met countless people
from all sorts of spheres of life, so you'll be SO well prepared.
-I've even met you before, so that is it.
-Hey, there you go.
-You could swap notes, possibly.
-He's not been any help.
You're assuming I know what I'm talking about. I have no idea!
-I don't even know the rounds. Matt, you've worked on OK TV.
-Who's the most interesting person you've met?
-On OK TV, we talked about Justin Bieber and Cheryl Cole.
-You loved Justin Bieber.
-I'm one of his biggest fans, literally.
-Did you get to meet the Bieber?
-A few times. More than enough.
-Jenni, what's a brilliant subject for you?
-I think we'll both be pretty good at showbiz stories,
film. I love film. For years, I've interviewed movie stars, so I've had to go and see movies.
-I've seen quite a lot of films.
-Any surprising little niche categories you'll be brilliant on?
-I studied languages at university. Only romance languages. No Germanics.
-If we get anything wrong, we have come to the conclusion that we'll blame Matt.
-Well, very best of luck with that.
It's lovely to have you here. Next we welcome Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry!
Now we know you as judges on the Great British Bake-Off,
-but you have backstories that go back and back and back! Mary, you've written over 50 books?
I was writing cookery books before there were computers.
-Paul, you've written a book called 100 Great Breads.
-We're writing one of those.
-Yeah. We've got One: White.
-Then we're, to be honest, slightly stuck after that.
I actually think I'm starting on a losing foot here.
I've already lost to Richard on Weirdest Crush.
-Ah! Heat magazine.
-Where did you come, Paul?
-At least you're on the list!
Best of luck. It's lovely to have you here. Next we welcome JK and Joel!
A multiple award-winning radio double act, TV double act.
-How long have you been working together?
-So that's...a few years.
-How did you meet?
We met at a radio station in Hull, of all places. We got put together because I was being late at 3pm
for my afternoon show.
So instead of sacking me they put me on his show in the morning, reading traffic and travel.
-JK, what do you hope comes up?
-I think for both of us Music would be good.
-Being in the radio industry.
-Joel, what are your hot subjects?
Really weird, but soaps, Prisoner: Cell Block H, wrestling, horse racing, darts.
Anything more specific than that(?)
-Em, top dogs in Prisoner: Cell Block H?
-Life and times of... Prisoner: Cell Block H.
-You love that.
JK and Joel, lovely to have you on the show. Very best of luck.
Finally, we've got Jennie Bond and Ben Cannon!
Well, Jennie, we know you best as a TV presenter and former BBC royal correspondent.
-Please introduce your fellow team player.
-This is lovely Ben. He's my nephew.
-I brought him along for the brain power of youth.
-First mistake of the evening!
-Mine is fading.
-What do you do, Ben?
-I'm a farmer.
-I am a farmer.
-Royal correspondent, but you must have travelled. The Commonwealth is brilliant for you.
-You are going to be dazzling!
-Alexander, I am terrified.
-I am standing here quaking.
-I don't think you've ever quaked in your life.
-What is going to be your specialist area?
-Music. Too many hours spent on a tractor
-listening to JK and Joel.
-Jennie, have you any strange...?
-My husband was a country music DJ,
so I know lots of really outrageous country music songs. Will I remember any? Probably not.
Jennie, Ben, lovely to have you here. Very best of luck.
We'll discover all your hidden knowledge throughout the show.
There's only one person left. If you had to phone a friend, he's the one, but he won't give me his number!
-He is my Pointless friend, Richard.
-Oh, wow. How are you?
-I'm extremely well, Richard.
-Very well. I like these celebrity specials. They're more nervous than usual!
And yet they're always on TV.
The good news is one of our pairs - you don't know this - has baked us a lovely cake.
-Yeah. The bad news is it was JK and Joel.
Very good. Thank you, Richard. All our questions have been put to 100 people before the show,
but we are looking for the obscure answers they didn't get.
To be in with a chance of winning our jackpot, our celebrities must score as few points as they can.
Everyone is trying to find a pointless answer that none of our 100 people knew.
When that happens, we will add £250 to the jackpot. As today's show is a celebrity special,
each celebrity is playing for a nominated charity. And we start off with a jackpot of £2,500.
OK, let's play Pointless.
In this first round, each of you must give me one answer and you cannot confer with your partner.
The pair with the highest score will be eliminated.
If you give me an incorrect answer, you will score 100 points, so try to avoid those.
OK, our first category is... Words.
Can you all decide who's going to go first and who's going to go second?
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 as many words ending in "..ash" as they could.
-Words ending in "..ash". Richard?
-Any word in the Oxford English Dictionary that ends "..ash".
No hyphenated words and no proper nouns. We also won't allow the word "ash" itself.
Right you are. Jenni and Matt, you all drew lots before the show and today you are going first.
I'm going to go for slash.
-You might have gone before the show!
-You're right. I've got five minutes. Slash.
-Let's see if that's correct.
It might just be(!) And how many people said slash?
-Oh, nice one.
25. Not bad at all. Not bad at all. Richard?
-A solid start. Can mean a cutting stroke, a cricket stroke... Can't think of anything else.
Clash says Paul. How many of our 100 people said clash?
Well, it's right.
This is all going in the right direction.
-For fun, Richard, clash.
-I find myself slightly redundant trying to explain what clash means.
JK, the most obscure word ending in "..ash" you can think of, please.
-I would have gone for that one.
-I think there are a couple of others.
But that was a good one. Can I congratulate you on that? I'm going to go for...whiplash.
Oh, this is good. This is good. Whiplash.
Let's see how many of our 100 people said whiplash.
There we are, you see.
-Very well done, JK.
-Thank you for choosing that one!
-Very well done. Two for whiplash.
-Best answer of the round so far.
You can have whiplash in a car with your head or spine going backwards suddenly.
-The most obscure word ending in "..ash", please.
I was trying to think a little bit outside the box. Then you doubt yourself. Have I spelt it right?
Anyway, I'm going to try...leash.
-Well done. Leash.
-Exactly. You see?
Leash, says Jenny. Let's see if that's right and how many people said leash.
-I spelt it right!
-Go on, Jennie.
-Very well done! Six!
-Six for leash.
That's a great answer, Jennie. It doesn't sound like it has "..ash" so people forget it.
Again, a leash. You have a dog on a leash. What do you want from me?
OK, thank you very much. Halfway through the round. Let's look at the scores.
-JK and Joel...
-I don't know how.
-An exemplary piece of scoring. Lovely low score of two.
Then six for Jennie and Ben.
Then we go up to 23, Paul and Mary.
Then 25, Matt and Jenni. So the grouping ain't bad. Jenni, some nice obscure words...
Or just one, in fact, to ensure you remain with us.
Can the second players please take their places at the podium?
OK, we are looking for words ending in "..ash".
Now, Ben, you are on six. The high scorers on 25 are Jenni and Matt.
Should you score 18 or less, you are definitely through to the next round.
OK, right. Balderdash.
-Oh, he's good.
-Yeah, he's good, isn't he?
-I think I said it right!
-Balderdash says Ben. You're on six.
Here is your red line. If you can get below that red line,
balderdash will see you careering through to the next round. How many said balderdash?
Down it goes...
You are through to the next round. 10!
-Very well done. It's kept you in.
-16 is your total. Richard?
-Very well played, Ben.
Every four years they hold a veterans' Olympics for athletes over 50
and the 100 metres in that is the balderdash.
Now then, Joel, you're two.
You're the low scorers. The high scorers are Jenni and Matt on 25. A score of 22 or less
-will see you through to the next round.
-I think I'm going to go with a really bad film.
-OK, you're going to go with splash.
There is your red line. Below that and you are definitely through.
How many people said splash?
Well done. Oh - 21. That'll do.
That will do very nicely. That takes your total up to 23.
-By the skin of your teeth there. Splash, come on.
-It wasn't that bad a film!
-It's a good film.
A mermaid?! You can see her legs! It's stupid.
-I'm not talking about the costume!
-You want them to cast a real mermaid?!
-Thank you very much.
Mary, words that end in "..ash".
The high scorers remain on 25. A score of one or less will do you very nicely.
It will see you through.
I think I'm going to say thrash.
Thrash says Mary. Here's your red line.
Ah, there it is. It's just above the grey line that is, in fact, the ground.
Below that red line, you are definitely through. Good luck.
How many of our 100 people said thrash?
Three that scores you.
It takes your total up to 26. Trust Mary to find the one word in that little category
-that scores only three.
-Terrific answer. Puts all the pressure on Jenni.
-Well done, Mary.
Which means, Jenni and Matt, you are on 25. Jenni, if you can score a pointless answer
-you are definitely in the next round.
-Let's go for squash.
-Oh, that's good.
-I have spelt it right? It doesn't end "osh", does it?
-Let's find out.
Squash, says Jenny.
Let's see if that's right and how many of our 100 people said squash.
Well done. It's right. It has to go down to one or pointless.
Only two scores will see you through. Oh, no! Bad luck.
It was a great answer.
Seven is your score. 32 is your total.
-Sorry, Jenni. You were doomed by Matt's slash.
-Not for the first time.
-I almost went for quash.
-Funnily enough, quash was six.
-That's all right, then.
I'll give you a list of some pointless answers. There's some quite well-known words here.
Backsplash, brainwash, haberdash.
Mouthwash is a pointless answer. Well done if you said that. Newsflash, overwash.
-JENNIE: You should have got that!
Soundclash would have been a pointless answer, but who knows the word soundclash?
And stonewash, also pointless. Well done if you got those at home.
Let's look at the highest scorers.
Dash with 64. We've avoided all of these. Bash at 72.
And right at the top, mash with 73.
Very, very low scores and incredibly unlucky to be going out with 32.
-That's a low score.
-Thank you, Richard.
At the end of Round One, the losing pair is Jenni and Matt!
-I know. The other thing we should be saying is, "It's all Matt's fault."
-But we've loved it.
-We've had a great day. We'll take the money.
-Is there a mug we can have of some sorts?
-We can find you a mug.
-I'm happy with a mug. I'm from Wales.
Several. Jenni and Matt, thank you so much for joining us. It's been lovely having you.
But for the remaining three pairs it's now time for Round Two.
Now there's only room for two celebrity pairs in the Head to Head
so one of the teams in front of me now will leave after this round.
The category for Round Two is... Fashion.
Can you all decide in your pairs who's going first and who's second?
Whoever's going first, please step up to the podium.
OK, our Round Two question concerns famous models and their countries of birth.
-We're going to show you lists of six famous fashion models.
You have to tell us the modern-day country in which they were born. An obscure answer scores fewer points.
An incorrect answer scores 100 points. Twelve models in all, twelve countries to guess at home.
As always, by country we mean a member of the UN, which is a sovereign state in its own right.
So we are looking for the modern-day countries in which these models were born. And we have got...
HE READS THE LIST
I'll read those again.
There they are.
What we want from you is the countries in which they were born.
If you can find the most obscure, the one that the fewest people knew, the better. Good luck.
Mary, what do you make of that?
Carmen, I think, was born in Spain.
-Spain, says Mary.
Let's see if that's right and how many people knew that.
Oh, bad luck. Unfortunately, that's an incorrect answer and you score the maximum 100 points.
-I've a feeling that's not the last time we'll see that this round. Joel?
-Do you know what's scary?
-One of the ladies on the list actually lived above me in Manchester.
-You two know everyone!
-No, no, no...
-But I've no idea where she's from!
I am going to take a stab, so to speak, at Linda Evangelista.
And because her fella was French, I'm going to go French.
Linda Evangelista, France. Let's see if that's right.
Ah, no, but...! Her boyfriend at the time was French!
Unfortunately, that was an incorrect answer. You also score 100 points.
-It's fun, this round.
Mary, Joel got 100 points on a question about his next-door neighbour.
So, Ben, it's up to you to tidy up.
-Luckily, I think you know most of these.
-Fill in the board and pick the one you'd like.
Absolutely. Specialist farming round. Jennie put me first as well. Thank you, Auntie(!)
-I'm not sure whether to play safe or take a punt.
-I tell you what, if you get a question right
-you are well ahead of the game.
-I can go home head high. I'll go safe, but I don't know if safe's safe.
Elle Macpherson seems obvious, but it may be wrong. Australian.
Elle Macpherson, Australia, says Ben.
This is the first time I've had the scent of possible correctness.
-Oh, hang on. That's you.
-Yeah, I'm wearing Possible Correctness by Lentheric.
Ben, you said Elle Macpherson, Australia. Let's see if that's right and how many people knew that.
Well done, Ben!
-Well done. 54!
-We'll take that.
-We'll take that, yeah!
-That puts you well ahead of the game, Ben. 54.
Well done, Ben. The biggest answer on the board, but it puts you in the driving seat.
Heidi Klum, the next highest scorer. She is from Germany. She would have scored you 36 points.
Gisele Bundchen is from Brazil. That would have scored 26.
Helena Christensen is from Denmark and would have scored 17.
Linda Evangelista is from Salford. That's a shame.
-No, she's Canadian.
-Maybe. But certainly Canadian.
Would have scored you four points. And Carmen Kass is the hardest answer. She is Estonian.
-One point. We'd have been here all day to guess that.
Very well done if you got all six.
Thank you. We're halfway through the round. Let's look at those scores.
54 - Ben and Jennie, that's looking fantastic.
And then nothing to divide Joel and JK and Mary and Paul, both of whom are on 100.
It's a tussle between Paul and JK. Who knows the countries of origin of models better? We shall discover.
Can the second players please take their places at the podium?
OK, we'll put six more fashion models on the board. We have got...
HE READS THE LIST
And one more time...
There we are. We're looking for the countries where they were born.
You're trying to find the one the fewest people knew.
-Now, Jennie, 54 is your score thanks to Ben's brilliant fashion knowledge.
-He did very well.
The high scorers are 100. That means a score of 45 or less will definitely see you through.
I know, surprisingly, about four of the names, so that's good.
I think I know a couple of the countries. I'm going to go for Carla Bruni.
Well, I believe I'm right in saying... I may be wrong!
I might be wrong. Actually, I might just change my mind.
I will go for Cindy Crawford, America.
Cindy Crawford, America.
OK, there is your red line. If you get below that red line, you are through to the next round.
Let's see if it's right and how many people said it.
Well done, well done. Well done.
-Takes your total up to 118.
-Well played, Jennie. She studied chemical engineering.
-Yeah, she did.
Well done, her. Now, JK and Joel. The high scorers are now Jennie and Ben on 118.
A score of 17 would see you deftly into the Head to Head.
I'm torn between - and it's a great choice to be - Claudia Schiffer or Eva Herzigova.
I'll go for Claudia Schiffer, Switzerland.
Claudia Schiffer, Switzerland. There's your red line. Below that and you're into the Head to Head.
Let's see if it's right and how many people said it.
That's an incorrect answer, which means you score 100 points. That takes your total up to 200.
Sorry, JK. But at least you didn't get 100 points on somebody you'd meet at the Residents Association.
-In the lift.
-That is something.
Paul, we're looking for the modern-day countries in which these models were born.
-It's a tricky one.
-The high scorers on 200 are JK and Joel,
which means if you score 99 or less, you are through to the Head to Head.
I'll go for Eva.
Let's see if that's right and how many people said it.
There's your red line.
All I think you have to be is right. Eva Herzigova, Czech Republic. Is it right? How many said it?
You've done it! Very, very well done, Paul.
Look at that. Down it goes to eight.
That's a cracking score, Paul. Eight for Eva Herzigova takes your total up to 108.
-How about that? Very good impression of a man pretending not to know much about fashion models!
Let's take a look at the rest. Jennie, you were trying to go for Carla Bruni.
I instantly thought she was French. I've heard her sing in French, she's the wife of Sarkozy.
And then I suddenly thought her origin could be Italian.
Exactly right. You made the right decision. She is Italian.
-Very well played. Claudia Schiffer is German.
-What do you mean, "See!"?
-55 points. You would still be out.
And Natalia Vodianova is Russian,
which is 24.
And the best answer on the board is Alek Wek who is from the Sudan.
It would have scored three points.
Very well done if you got all 12. I think only Paul knew that one.
Thank you, Richard. So the losing celebrity pair with the highest score is JK and Joel.
-But what a score to go out on - 200!
-He thinks we've won!
In many ways you have. You've won a reprieve from the show.
JK and Joel, lovely. Thank you so much for being on Celebrity Pointless. Wonderful contestants.
But for the remaining two celebrity pairs, things get more exciting now as we enter the Head to Head.
Congratulations, Paul and Mary, Jennie and Ben.
You are now only one round away from the final and your chance to play for the jackpot,
which currently stands at £2,500.
Obviously, only one pair can play for that money and to decide which pair you will now go Head to Head.
For each question you are given, there will be five options.
Each pair needs to give me one answer, but you are now allowed to confer.
Just score less than the other pair to win that question. First to win two questions play for the jackpot.
Let's play Head to Head.
OK, here is your first question and it concerns...
-Famous painters, Richard.
-We'll show you five photographs of famous painters.
You just have to tell us who they are. The most obscure answer wins.
Thank you very much. So let's reveal the five famous painters. And we have got...
I don't know what's funny about that. So there you are.
There are your five painters. You pick the one you think the fewest of our 100 people knew
and hope you win the question.
-Again, stab in the dark, I'll go A, Picasso.
Paul and Mary are saying A, Picasso. Jennie and Ben...
-You can go for A as well, if you like.
-We can go for A as well?
-We thought we knew that.
-We thought we only knew two.
-Go for A. Salvador Dali.
-That's what we think.
A, Salvador Dali. So we have Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali both competing for A.
In the order they were given, Paul and Mary said Pablo Picasso. Is that right?
Oh, as I think you probably knew, that was an incorrect answer.
Jennie and Ben, you have gone for Salvador Dali for A. All you have to be is correct.
Are you? ..And, yes, you are!
-Yes, you are correct.
-49 people out of 100 knew that.
-Well done. Excellent.
-Well done, Jennie and Ben. After one question, you are up one-nil. Richard?
49 points, Salvador Dali. B is pointless. None of our 100 people knew this.
It's a very rare photograph of Claude Monet. Scored nothing, would have added to the jackpot.
C, Jackson Pollock, would have scored you 11 points.
D, the famous painter Francis Bacon. That would have scored seven.
And, unsurprisingly, the biggest score of all, 74 for Rolf Harris.
Thank you very much. Here is your second question. Paul and Mary, you have to win this.
Here it comes. It concerns...Doctor Who.
-We'll give you a list of five clues to facts about Doctor Who.
Can you give us one of those facts? The most obscure one wins the point.
-OK, let's reveal our five facts on Doctor Who. Here are the clues.
-HE READS THE LIST
Shall I read those one more time?
Jennie and Ben, you go first this time.
The only one we've got any idea and we're not sure - the decade, we'll go for the '60s.
The 1960s. The decade in which it first appeared, say Jennie and Ben.
-Mary, I know you're a massive Doctor Who fan...
-He's the clever one.
-I think we have to keep to our namesake.
-Surname shared by two actors who played the Doctor - we'll say Baker.
Very well done and how appropriate. OK, Jennie and Ben have gone for the 1960s,
the decade in which it first appeared. Is it right? How many people said it?
-Oh, well done, Ben.
-Oh, I don't know.
-Well done, Ben.
-Very well done.
-It was a guess.
-67 is what Paul and Mary have to beat with their answer of Baker,
the surname shared by two actors. Is that right? And how many said it? Baker.
It IS right.
And it beats Jennie and Ben.
That's what it needed to do. Very well done, Mary and Paul.
Very well done. That wins you the question, so it's one-all. Richard?
Well played, Paul and Mary. Two Bakers must be the most appropriate win we've ever had.
-We had to go for it.
-Exactly. Tom and Colin both played the Doctor.
1963 Doctor Who was first shown. And the rest. The assistant played by Billie Piper was Rose Tyler.
That would have scored you 35.
The foe most recently played by John Simm is The Master, 20.
-And the Dalek planet is the best answer. It's Skaro.
-Everything to play for!
You are absolutely evenly matched. Whoever wins this third question will play for that jackpot.
Your third question concerns... Grand National winners.
We'll give you the names of five horses which have won the National since 1970,
but we've missed out the last word in their names. Give us that word. The most obscure one wins the point.
Wow. Very exciting. OK, let's reveal our Grand National winners with the second name obscured.
-HE READS THE LIST
I'll read those all one more time.
So there are your five Grand National winners.
Paul and Mary, you go first again this time.
-We all know one, don't we?
-OK, Red Rum.
-You're going to go for Red Rum.
-And so did everybody else!
-Middle of the board, Red Rum.
-Jennie and Ben, you can now do your thinking out loud if you need to.
-I think we'll go for...
-No, Party Time. Go on. We'll go for Party Time.
We have Red Rum and we have Party Time.
Paul and Mary, Red Rum. Is it right? How many people said Red Rum?
-It's right! And 94 people said it.
-I'm not surprised!
That might be all you need.
We have Party Time from Jennie and Ben. Is it right?
-Oh, no! Bad luck.
That's an incorrect answer, which means Paul and Mary are through to the final, 2-1.
-Very well done indeed.
Absolute full credit to Mary there who nicked the only answer everybody knew.
Very good tactics. Some of these, you'll know them when you hear them.
The next highest answer is not Party Time. Five days before the election in 1992, the bookies lost a fortune.
It was Party Politics. It scored 22 points.
Ben Nevis won the 1980 National. Only 4 horses finished. 12 points.
The first horse I ever won money on, in 1987, Maori Venture. That would have scored seven.
I've given it all back since. And the most recent winner is the lowest score. 2009, Mon Mome,
which would have scored five points. Very well done if you got all those and if you bet on them!
Very good. Thank you, Richard. So the losing pair is Jennie and Ben. That was a good horse snort!
-He's very competitive.
-You needn't be. You've done so well.
-Yeah, it was fun.
We're very relieved to have got this far.
-Thank you so much for coming and playing.
-Great contestants, Jennie and Ben!
But for Paul and Mary it's now time for our Pointless final.
Congratulations, Paul and Mary. You fought off all the competition to win our coveted Pointless trophy.
You now have a chance to win our Pointless jackpot, which at the end of today's show stands at £2,500.
The rules are very simple. To win that money, all you have to do is find a pointless answer.
We haven't had any today. You only have to find one to go home with that money for your charities.
First, you've got to choose a category from five options.
HE READS THE LIST
-I don't believe it!
-If I pick Liverpool singers and get it wrong, I'm finished,
-so I might avoid that one. I'm thinking time zones.
-Are you? I'll try to help you.
-Time zones it is. OK, let's find out what your question is.
We gave 100 people 100 seconds to name as many countries 10 hours or more
-ahead or behind GMT.
-We're looking for any country whose standard time is at least 10 hours ahead
or 10 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time. By country we mean a sovereign state that's a member of the UN.
You have up to one minute to come up with three answers.
All you need to win that £2,500 for your charities is for just one of those answers to be pointless.
We'll put 60 seconds on the clock. Your time starts now.
-Barbados is not 10 hours ahead.
-No, it's eight.
-I think we go west coast of...
No, that's the same. West coast of America or you go Indonesia, Japan. Not Australia.
I think they're 12, 11. New Zealand. I think you have to come in a little bit.
-It's 10 hours or more.
-10 hours or more.
Falklands... Some obscure island off New Zealand. Tasmania?
-Tasmania. The Hayman Islands?
-Not Cayman Islands?
I would... Australia. 10 hours or more.
10 seconds left.
Miles away. Think New Zealand. Australia. I think Tasmania could be an interesting one.
-You've got Fiji...
-OK, your time is up.
We were looking for countries whose standard time zone is 10 hours or more
ahead of or behind GMT.
-We think Fiji could be one.
I will go Tasmania.
-As a curve ball, Falklands? Maybe?
-I'll go Falkland Islands.
-Of those three, which is your best shot at a pointless answer?
-We'll put Fiji last. And your least likely?
-Let's put them up in that order.
And here they are.
So we are looking for countries whose standard time is 10 hours or more
ahead of or behind GMT. Tasmania was your least confident answer.
You only need one pointless answer to win that jackpot of £2,500.
Tasmania. Is it right? How many people said it? Tasmania.
Tasmania. An incorrect answer.
We'll discover why in a moment.
It was just holding a place for you. You only have two more chances.
-What are your charities?
-The Pilgrims Hospice in Canterbury.
-The Child Bereavement Charity.
-Very good indeed.
OK, we are looking for countries 10 or more hours ahead of or behind GMT.
-Your next answer, the Falkland Islands. Are you confident?
OK, this has to be pointless for you to win that jackpot.
Let's see if Falkland Islands is right and how many people said it.
Another incorrect answer.
But this was all just preamble for your main answer, which is Fiji.
You had no hesitation putting Fiji last. It's your best answer.
We're looking for countries 10 hours or more ahead of or behind GMT. Your last answer, Fiji.
Is it right and, if it is, how many people said it? This to win the jackpot of £2,500 for charity.
Fiji is right.
We mis-hit with Tasmania and the Falkland Islands, but Fiji is right.
And you put it last...
-Never mind, Mary.
Unfortunately, you didn't find that all-important pointless answer, so you won't take our jackpot home.
However, as it is a celebrity special, we are going to donate £500 to each celebrity pair
towards their respective charities, so there you are.
Let's find out, though. Richard, what were the pointless answers?
Just to explain the wrong ones, Tasmania is part of Australia.
The Falkland Islands is a UK territory and only four hours behind, amazingly.
You were right in thinking of island nations off Australia.
All the pointless answers are island groups in the South Pacific.
A lot of these are familiar to regular Pointless viewers.
Federated States of Micronesia, Kiribati, the Marshall Islands,
all of these are countries and members of the UN.
Nauru, the Solomon Islands, Tuvalu
and Vanuatu. All of those would have won. Very well done if you said those.
Thank you very much, Richard.
Unfortunately, we have to say goodbye to you, Paul and Mary, but thank you so much for playing.
So all that remains is for me to say thank you to our celebrity pairs - Jenni and Matt, JK and Joel,
Jennie and Ben and our finalists, Paul and Mary!
Join us next time when we'll put more obscure knowledge to the test. Meanwhile, goodbye from Richard.
-And goodbye from me. Goodbye.
