Thank you very much. Hello, I'm Alexander Armstrong. Welcome to a celebrity edition of Pointless,
the quiz show that puts obscure knowledge to the test. Every question was asked to 100 people.
To be in with a chance of winning our final round jackpot,
our celebrities need answers the 100 people didn't come up with. Let's meet our Pointless celebrities.
First up, we welcome Paul and Stacey Young.
Paul, we know you as one of our country's most popular singers,
-the man who opened the Band Aid single, the very first line of that.
-A popular pub quiz question.
-Please introduce your playing partner, Paul.
-My playing partner is Stacey, my wife of 24 years.
-And we met on the second video shoot, I think...
-..for Come Back And Stay.
You've done a lot of other things. You've been on Celebrity MasterChef, Hell's Kitchen.
-You've become a bit of a cook, haven't you?
-I'm a bit of a foodie.
It's a hobby that's become a little bit more than that. I enjoy it almost as much as making music.
-Making food's great, too.
-Stacey, you were formerly a model,
-so I guess fashion is strong for you.
-It should be, unless I forget!
-You never forget fashion.
-Might be a bit old now.
Paul, music, food... What other areas are good for you?
Geography I'm not bad. The weaker points are science and politics, two things my kids are great at.
-I don't know where they got that from.
-Anything weak for you, Stacey?
-The same two.
-How long have you got?
-Lovely to have you on the show. Paul and Stacey, very best of luck.
Next we welcome Shaun Murphy and CJ de Mooi.
Shaun, you're a world snooker champion and, CJ, most people will know you as an Egghead.
-How do you two know each other?
-We just met at the snooker a few years ago.
CJ's a big snooker fan and I play a little. We just bumped into each other.
-We've become good friends over the years.
-So, CJ, an Egghead. You're going to know everything.
I like geography, history, science, literature. I'm absolutely useless on sport, popular culture.
Ask me anything on soap operas, you'll have 100 points straight away.
OK, Shaun, snooker - I'd be very upset if you didn't know everything. A bit of travel?
-Snooker must take you around the world.
-Yeah, I'm very lucky to have done a lot of travelling.
I've seen some fantastic places. It's been amazing.
OK, well, very best of luck. It's lovely to have you on the show.
Next we welcome Chris Kamara and Martin Offiah.
Well now, Kammy, we know you as a former footballer, manager and, of course, a pundit and presenter.
Martin, of course, you were an ex-rugby league player. What brings you together as a team?
When I was a young boy, I watched Wigan rugby... and he was performing really well.
-I was a Leeds Rhino fan.
-But I was at Wigan.
-Martin, what are good areas for you?
-I quite like watching the History Channel,
-so Second World War is an area of interest for me.
-That was your topic on Celebrity Mastermind.
-Yeah. I did come last!
-Well, equal third I'd like to call it.
-Chris, what about you?
-Sport, if you don't mind.
-Yeah, yeah, OK.
-And anything to do with booze!
We'll call that food and drink. Less of the food.
It's lovely having you both. Welcome to Pointless, best of luck.
Finally, we've got Ray Quinn and Emma Stephens.
Ray, most people will know you as an award-winning star of Brookside,
X Factor, Dancing On Ice and Legally Blonde The Musical. Please introduce your partner.
This is my wonderful fiancee, Emma. We met on Grease back... three and a half years ago now.
-Yeah, so here she is.
-Emma, what were you playing in Grease?
-I was playing Marty and then went on to play Sandy.
-So musical theatre is going to be very strong.
-Hopefully, like sport, I hope I don't show myself up.
-Fingers crossed. Musical theatre, nature.
-Er, that's about it!
-Very good. Ray, what would you like to come up?
-I'm not entirely sure. I'd like to say musicals,
but I'm blagging it myself, so...
-Probably cars. I'm a massive fan of cars.
-Lovely to have you both on the show.
-A very warm welcome.
We look forward to discovering your hidden knowledge during the show.
There's only one person left to introduce. His pen is ready to go, his chair is at the optimal height,
-but he's still not wearing any trousers. My Pointless friend, Richard.
-That's a pretty good line-up.
-Question one you could loosely affiliate with music.
-And question two you could loosely affiliate with sport.
-OK, thanks very much, Richard.
All our questions have been put to 100 people before the show. We want obscure answers they didn't get.
To stay in the game with a chance to win our jackpot, our teams must score as few points as they can.
Everyone's trying to find a pointless answer that none of our 100 people knew.
Each time that happens, we add £250 to the jackpot. As each of our celebrities is playing for charity,
we start off with a jackpot of £2,500.
Right. If everyone's ready, let's play Pointless.
In this first round, each of you must give me one answer and you cannot confer with your partner.
Whichever pair has the highest score will be eliminated. An incorrect answer scores the maximum 100 points
so avoid those if you can. OK, our first category this afternoon is...Eurovision.
RAY: Yes! I'm joking.
Can you all decide who is going to go first and who goes 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
as many countries which have won the Eurovision Song Contest as they could. Richard?
Any country, other than the UK, which has won the Eurovision Song Contest up to 2011.
Where a country no longer exists, we need its name when it won.
So any country that has ever won the Eurovision Song Contest.
Wow. Right, Paul and Stacey, you all drew lots before the show and you get to go first.
I'm going to say...
-OK, Finland, says Stacey.
Let's see if that's right and how many people said Finland.
Oh, it's a good answer, Stacey. Look at that - 18.
Very well done. 18 for Finland.
-Great start, Stacey. They won in 2006. Lordi won with Hard Rock Hallelujah.
-I knew that.
Now then, Shaun...
-I'm going to go for... Republic of Ireland.
-Let's see if that's right
and, if it is, how many of our 100 people said Republic of Ireland.
Oh, that's a high score.
It's a lot better than 100, but 71 for the ROI.
Good score in snooker, not so good on Pointless. They've won it seven times.
Thanks very much, Richard. Kammy, the most obscure country to win the Eurovision Song Contest.
-Do you follow it at all?
-Not really, but with ABBA being a Swedish band, I'd think Sweden.
Sweden. OK, nice obscure answer there from Kammy. Let's see if Sweden is right
and, if it is, how many people said Sweden.
Oh, it's not bad. 58.
58 for Sweden.
Yeah, they've won it four times as Kammy well knows. ABBA was 1974. They last won it in 1999.
Thank you. Now, Ray, something tells me you might be quite good at this.
You're having a laugh.
-Yeah. I'm going to say Germany.
OK, Germany says Ray. Let's see if that's right and, if it is, how many people said Germany.
-Well done, Ray. It's right.
-That'll do me.
-Down it goes.
-Good score - 39. Well done, Ray.
-Yes! I'm proud of that.
-39 for Ray.
-Yeah, they won in 2010. They also won in 1982 as West Germany.
We're halfway through. Let's take a look at the scores.
Best score of the round was from Stacey. A cracking score of 18.
Then we go up to 39, Ray and Emma.
Then 58, Chris and Martin.
And up to 71, Shaun and CJ. But I think CJ will have a brilliant answer,
otherwise we won't see you in the next round. Can the second celebrities take their places?
Here we go. Remember, we are looking for countries that have won the Eurovision Song Contest.
Emma, you're on 39. Cracking answer from Ray.
The high scorers on 71 are Shaun and CJ. That means if you can score 31 or less,
-you are definitely in the next round. Is this good for you?
-Em, not really, no.
-But I'm going to give it my best shot. I think Italy.
-Yes, I'll go for Italy.
-Well, Germany did well for Ray. There is your red line.
Get below that red line and you are through comfortably. Italy, is it right? How many people said it?
Well done, Emma.
-You've done it! Very well done - 16!
That's a great answer. Takes your total up to 55. Richard?
Safely through. Italy have won it twice, the last time in 1990.
Now then, Martin. Martin...
You're on 58. The high scorers are still Shaun and CJ on 71.
-If you can score 12 or less...
-I'm going to say Israel.
-Israel, says Martin. Here comes your red line.
If you get below that, you are through comfortably.
Israel. Is it right? How many said it?
-Whoo! Not bad!
-34. Takes your total up to 92. You are our new high scorers.
-There's a big crossover between rugby league and Eurovision.
Martin just symbolises it perfectly, doesn't he?
Not ashamed to show the sort of knowledge that he's just shown us there.
Israel have won it three times.
CJ, your score is 71. The high scorers are now on 92.
A score of 20 or less would see you straight into the next round.
I will go for Azerbaijan.
-Watch and learn, everybody. There's a quizzer.
CJ says Azerbaijan.
There's your red line. If you get below that with Azerbaijan,
you are in the next round. Let's see if that's right and how many said Azerbaijan.
And you're through to the next round. It scores only four points! Takes your total up to 75.
Very, very well done, CJ.
-Yeah, they won in 2011. That just seems unfair, doesn't it?
Now then, Paul. The high scorers are still Martin and Chris on 92.
-A score of 73 or less will see you through.
-I was going to go for a wild card,
but I think I can afford to play it safe.
-France. There's your red line.
It's nice and high. If you can get below that, you are through to the Head to Head. Best of luck.
France. Is it right? How many said France?
Yep, it's right.
And you are through.
42 for France!
-It's good enough.
-Takes your total to 60.
-Perfect tactics, Paul. That's exactly the way to play.
They've won five times. There's no pointless answers at all.
There's some low-scoring ones. Best answer would have been Belgium or Austria, for one point.
Monaco was two points. Other low scorers - Yugoslavia, Serbia, Latvia, Ukraine, Estonia.
Well done if you said those at home.
Thanks very much, Richard. So at the end of Round One,
the losing pair with the highest score is Kammy and Martin.
-Aww. 92 is not a bad total, either.
-Devastated, I have to say.
Oh, dear. What will you take away from your Pointless experience?
Chris and Martin, thank you so much for joining us. It's been a real treat. Brilliant contestants.
But for the remaining three pairs, it's now time for Round Two.
Obviously, there's only room for two celebrity pairs in our Head to Head, so one team leaves after this round.
Our category for Round Two is... celebrities.
-Can you all decide who's going to go first and who's going second?
Whoever's going first, please step up to the podium.
OK, our Round Two questions concerns...footballers and their WAGs.
-I told you it was loosely associated with sport. We'll show you six names one each pass.
Tell us which footballers these people are married to.
Give us a nice obscure answer for fewer points.
Give us an incorrect answer, you'll score 100 points. 12 names in all to get at home.
Here we go. We are looking for the footballers who are married to these people. And we have...
HE READS THE LIST
I'll read those all again, only if you make that face, CJ!
And here we go...
There we are.
Oh, I'll just have to go safe and I'm really sorry, it's lame,
-but Abigail Clancy is married to Peter Crouch.
-Abigail Clancy, Peter Crouch.
Is that right? How many people knew that? Peter Crouch, Abigail Clancy.
Not a terrible score.
-38 for Peter Crouch.
-Very good answer. Married in 2011.
OK, Peter Crouch, great answer. Now then, Shaun.
I only know three of them and one of them's gone,
so I'm going to have to go for Alex Curran, who I think is married to Steven Gerrard.
Alex Curran, Steven Gerrard. Let's see if that's right.
Is Alex Curran married to Steven Gerrard? How many people knew that?
Ah, it's right! There we are, Shaun.
Down it goes. 33. There we are, 33.
-Not a bad score. Alex Curran.
-Well done, Shaun.
She launched her own perfume. Know what it was called?
Alex. It makes you smell like Alex Ferguson.
-Now then, Emma, talk us through the board.
-The only person I know on that board is Coleen
-and Wayne Rooney. So that's the only answer I can give.
-No shame in that.
Coleen McLoughlin, Wayne Rooney.
Let's see if that's right and how many knew it.
Coleen McLoughlin, Wayne Rooney.
80. I mean, that's...
-That's really quite high.
-I knew it would be high!
-No, no, this isn't your answer. It's our 100 people.
Yeah, 80 out of 100, but it's better than 100.
Let's have a look at the rest.
Carly Zucker was married in 2009 to Joe Cole.
That would have scored 16 points.
Toni Poole in 2007.
-Yeah, John Terry. There you go. Lionel Richie sang at their wedding.
-They were furious. They booked Shane Richie.
And Simone Lambe is a pointless answer. Very well done if you knew she was married to Michael Ballack,
Chelsea and Germany midfielder.
Thanks, Richard. We're halfway through. Let's look at those scores.
Shaun and CJ, looking very good on 33. Very strong.
Then up to 38, where we find Stacey and Paul.
Then Emma and Ray, up there on 80, but luckily Ray gets first pick of the board.
-You'll find the Simone Lambe, maybe.
Good luck. Can the second players please take their places at the podium?
OK, we're going to put six more WAGs on the board. Here they come.
HE READS THE LIST
I'll read it one more time.
Remember, we are looking for the footballers to whom these women are married.
And you want the one the fewest people knew. Ray, you're on 80.
-We need a nice low score.
-I'm hoping it is. A name popped into my head.
I'm hoping it's right. I think Louise Nurding is Jamie Redknapp's wife.
Louise Nurding, Jamie Redknapp. CJ is just so upset about that!
It must be right, then! LAUGHTER
There's no red line for you. Just hope it goes down as far as it can.
Is it right? How many said it?
Yes, it's right.
-That's OK. That's not too bad.
-40 takes your total up to 120. Richard?
-Well played, Ray.
In 2004, Louise Nurding named FHM's Sexiest Woman of the Decade.
-That's not bad going. A title neither you nor I have.
Now then, CJ, the high scorers are Ray and Emma on 120.
You are on 33. A score of 86 or less would see you straight into the next round.
I'm afraid I just don't know any of these, so I'll have to go for Victoria Adams and David Beckham
Victoria Adams, David Beckham, says CJ.
If you get below that red line with Victoria Adams and David Beckham, you are in the head-to-head.
Is that right and if it is, how many people said Victoria Adams, David Beckham?
You've done it. 78.
There you are. 78 takes your total up to 111. Very well done. Richard?
Safely through. Scored just less than Coleen McLoughlin.
If it said Posh Adams
or Victoria Spice...
-Or Posh Spice...
Maybe 82, maybe 83 people would have got it.
I think maybe 97 people might have got that.
Right, Paul... The high scorers on 120 are Ray and Emma.
You're on 38. A score of 81 or less will see you through to the next round.
Leanne Wassell, don't know, Sheree Murphy, don't know,
Claudine Palmer, don't know, Joy Beverley, don't know,
but as it's married in 1958,
the most famous footballer I can think that might have been playing in the '60s would be Bobby Moore.
And that's all I've got.
Bobby Moore, putting everything on Bobby Moore.
OK, here is your red line. It's nice and high.
Bobby Moore, you are saying.
Is that right for Joy Beverley married in 1958?
Let's see if it is and if it is, how many people said it.
Oh, bad luck, Paul, I'm afraid that's an incorrect answer, so you score the maximum of 100 points.
It takes your total up to 138. Sorry.
Yes, sorry, Paul. Faultless logic. It was the right thing to do.
She was the eldest of the Beverley Sisters
and she married a man capped over 100 times for England, Billy Wright. Would have scored 2 points.
Let's go through the board. Sheree Murphy married Harry Kewell,
former Leeds and Liverpool player - 16 points.
Claudine Palmer has a first class degree in Economics and Finance from University College Dublin
and she's married to Robbie Keane - 3 points.
And Leanne Wassell is the pointless answer on the board. She would have added £250 to the jackpot
the day she married Wes Brown, ex of Man United and now Sunderland. Very well done if you got those.
Thank you, Richard. The losing pair at the end of Round Two
with the highest score, I'm sorry to say, it's Paul and Stacey.
Well, sport was never my strong point.
-I'm afraid this is where we have to say goodbye and every time you go away, you take a piece...
-Oh, never mind.
-You take a piece of us with you.
-At least I like to think you will.
Thank you so much, Stacey and Paul, it's been lovely having you on the show. Brilliant!
But for the remaining two pairs, things get even more exciting now as we enter the head-to-head.
Congratulations, Ray and Emma, CJ and Shaun, you are now only one round away from the final
and a chance to play for our jackpot which currently stands at £2,500.
Only one pair can play for that money and to decide which pair it will be, you now go head-to-head.
For each question, you will be shown five options.
Each pair needs to pick just one answer, but you can now confer.
Score less than the other pair and you will win that question.
The first pair to win two questions will be playing for the jackpot. Let's play head-to-head.
OK, here is your first question.
-For this question, we'll show you five pictures of fashion designers.
We've also shown them to our 100 people. Which of these is the most obscure?
Thanks very much, Richard. Let's reveal our five fashion designers and here they come.
There they are, our five fashion designers.
Ray and Emma, you've played best throughout the show so far, so you get to go first.
We have five fashion designers. You name the one you think the fewest of our 100 people recognised.
I'd go with C because it's black and white, innit?
I think it might be Chanel, but I don't know.
-OK, you are saying C...
CJ and Shaun...
I think A is Tom Ford, B is Donatella Versace
and E is Jean-Paul Gaultier.
Just on the basis that I'm not sure who C is...
If it is Coco Chanel, then we don't have much of a chance anyway,
so let's hope it isn't and we'll go for a definite one and go for E, Jean-Paul Gaultier.
OK, Jean-Paul Gaultier you are saying for E.
So we have Coco Chanel and we have Jean-Paul Gaultier.
Ray and Emma went with Chanel. Let's see if that's right and if it is, how many people said Chanel.
-And it is.
-Oh, my gosh!
-Very well done, Emma.
-Down it goes.
-21. That's a great answer.
CJ and Shaun have gone for E who they think is Jean-Paul Gaultier.
Let's see if that's right and if it is, how many people said Jean-Paul Gaultier for E.
21 is the score it has to beat. Will it go down that far...?
Very well done, Ray and Emma. After one question, you are ahead 1-0. Richard?
Very well played, Emma. It's a very good answer.
CJ, if you had gone for A, Tom Ford, you'd have won the point.
It only scored 7, so it would have been a terrific answer.
B is Donatella Versace.
She would have scored 30.
There's C, Coco Chanel.
D is the best answer on the board - 1 point.
You'll know the name, if not the face, of Donna Karan - 1 point.
And E, we've seen already, is Jean-Paul Gaultier - 31.
-Very well done if you got all five of those.
-Thanks very much, Richard, and very well done, Emma and Ray.
Here comes the second question. CJ and Shaun, you've got to win this question to stay in the game.
-We're about to give you five clues to facts about David Cameron.
What's the most obscure of these facts? Very best of luck.
Thanks, Richard. Let's reveal five clues about facts to David Cameron. And here we are. We've got...
I'll read those all one more time.
There we are. CJ and Shaun, you go first this time.
As I said before, you have to win this question to stay in the game.
I think we'll probably have to go for the special adviser
which I believe was Norman Lamont.
Norman Lamont, you are saying was the former Chancellor to whom he was special adviser. So, Ray and Emma...
We really don't know any of the answers.
The only one we can have a stab in the dark with is the famous public school
and I don't even know if it counts as a school or a university.
What do you think?
-Oxford School, whatever it's called.
OK, you are saying Oxford.
CJ and Shaun have said the former Chancellor to whom he was a special adviser was Norman Lamont.
Let's see if that's right and if it is, how many people said it.
6 of our 100 people knew that
and Ray and Emma are saying that the famous public school he attended was Oxford.
Let's see if that's right and if it is, how many people said that.
-Bad luck. It doesn't matter. You had a point in hand.
After two questions, you are now even, one point apiece. Richard?
Yeah, he did go to Oxford University. Eton was the name of his public school.
-That would have scored 57.
-Can you not change the question?
Even if we changed the question, you'll still lose the point because CJ gave us the best answer,
which is the special adviser to Norman Lamont which scored 6 points.
Let's go through the rest of them.
His wife's name is Samantha. Would have scored you 38.
The daughter born in 2010... It's good to know that CJ doesn't know something. That's humanising.
That was Florence. Would have scored you 11 points.
-His parliamentary constituency, also a low scorer, 7 points for, CJ...?
Here comes your third question. Whoever wins this question is in the final.
Your third question concerns...
-We'll show you five proverbs or sayings from the Oxford Book of Proverbs.
They're all missing one food or drink-related word. What's that word, please?
OK, let's reveal our five food and drink proverbs.
I'll read those all again.
Now then, Ray and Emma, you get to go first this time.
This is another tricky one because there's some that you think you know, but it could be wrong.
-Just do the last one.
-"You can't make an omelette without breaking any eggs."
You say, "You can't make an omelette." "Omelette" is the missing word there. CJ and Shaun...
I know four. I don't know the second one.
"Why buy a cow when milk is so cheap?" "Man cannot live by bread alone."
"Fine words butter no parsnips." That's what we should go for.
"Fine words butter no parsnips." What do you think?
-Fine words from Shaun there(!)
Let me put it this way. That's the one we'll go for.
OK, so you are going to go with "fine words butter no parsnips".
So we have from Ray and Emma, "You can't make an omelette without breaking eggs."
Let's see if "omelette" is right and if it is, how many people said it.
-Yes, you know...
CJ and Shaun, you said, "Fine words butter no parsnips."
Let's see if that's right and if it is, how many people said that.
It's right and you are through to the next round.
Good answer, CJ and Shaun, so after three questions, you are through to the final 2-1. Richard?
It's the best answer on the board. Ray and Emma, you've played so well throughout and taken them to 2-1,
-but they gave the best answer twice in a row.
-We've done all right.
Let's go through the rest of them.
"Man cannot live by bread alone" would have scored 57.
"Why buy a cow when milk is so cheap?" Would have scored you 36.
-And "you can't put new..."
-"..wine in old bottles." 30 points.
The best one there, "Fine words butter no parsnips." Well done if you said that at home.
Thank you, Richard. The losing pair at the end of the head-to-head, it's Ray and Emma.
-Guys, you've done so well.
-I don't want to go.
-You can stay if you like.
-I need to go before I embarrass myself.
I don't think you did at all. Oxford... In America, they call universities "schools".
I'm made up that we've done well. I'm made up about that Chanel one. I wouldn't have known that one.
-It's just a shame we're not taking anything home for our charity, but never mind.
-So share it!
-Ray and Emma, thank you so much for playing. It's been lovely having you on the show.
-Thanks for having us.
APPLAUSE Good luck.
But for Shaun and CJ, it's now time for our Pointless final.
Congratulations, CJ and Shaun, you have fought off all the competition
and won our coveted Pointless trophy.
You now have a chance to win our Pointless jackpot and at the end of today's show, it stands at £2,500.
Your Pointless career so far has been slightly up and down. The first round was not especially dazzling.
I thought after Shaun gave the Republic of Ireland answer as our very first utterance in the show
it would be our last one, I thought we were out.
Well, here you are in the final.
To win that money for your charities, all you have to do is find a pointless answer.
We haven't had any today. You only have to find one now and you go home with that money.
First you've got to choose a category and you have a choice of five categories.
Before the show, we agreed that if we got this far,
which we are very lucky to do after my Republic of Ireland mess-up,
we'd go with whatever you wanted to go with.
-We'll go for Flags, Alexander.
-OK, let's find out what the question is.
We gave 100 people 100 seconds
to name as many countries that have national flags with three stripes as they could.
-We want any country in the world that has a flag
which consists of three vertical or horizontal stripes.
They must all be different colours and go in the same direction.
Any flag that has a crest or symbol on it doesn't count. Countries with a three-striped flag, please.
OK, you now have up to one minute to come up with three answers.
All you need to win that £2,500 is for just one of those answers to be pointless. Are you ready?
-Let's put 60 seconds on the clock and here they are.
Your time starts now.
It's a pity there's no symbols allowed.
Don't do anything from Europe.
Generally, avoid any major country that's been in the FIFA World Cup.
I'm struggling now to avoid ones without symbols on them.
Just going across...
I think Chad doesn't have a symbol on it.
That does, that does. Oh, dear!
I'm trying to avoid anything in Europe.
-That does. Oh, dear.
-Ten seconds left.
Anything in South America?
-He's only playing. He'll have got it.
-I wouldn't bet on it!
-OK, I've got...
-I've got three possibles.
-OK, your time is up
We were looking for flags with three stripes. I now need your three answers.
We'll go for Chad, Netherlands
So we have Chad, the Netherlands and Russia.
-Which of those are you going to keep till last?
-Lovely. Which is your least likely?
OK, let's put them up on the board in that order. We have got...
OK, flags with three stripes on. Russia was your least confident shot at a pointless answer.
You only have to find one pointless answer to win that £2,500 for your charity.
OK, let's see if Russia is right and if it is, how many people said Russia.
If this goes all the way down to zero, you'll be leaving here with £2,500 for your charities.
-Down it goes into the teens.
Into single figures... 7.
Unfortunately, not a pointless answer. You only have two more chances to win today's jackpot.
-That's not bad, 7 for your first answer?
-That was his least favourite.
-That's pretty good.
Let's hope nobody said your next answer, the Netherlands.
This has to be pointless to win that jackpot of £2,500.
Let's see how many people said the Netherlands.
Your first answer of Russia went down to 7. Let's see how far down the Netherlands goes.
If this goes down to zero, you leave here with £2,500.
You only have one more chance to win today's jackpot, £2,500, and it is all riding on Chad.
-What do you think Chad's flag looks like?
-What if Chad's wrong?
-If it is, I'm not going to do well here.
-Describe it for us.
-I think Chad is similar to the flag of Romania.
-I think it's very similar to Romania
-What are your charities? Shaun?
Well, our chosen charity is the Paul Hunter Foundation
which was set up after Paul sadly passed away a number of years ago.
It's a foundation that helps a lot of underprivileged kids get off the streets, basically,
-and it's something that as snooker we're really into.
-Very well done.
An excellent charity.
Let's hope your last answer will see that charity £2,500 richer.
This has to be correct and it has to be pointless if you're to leave here with £2,500 for your charity.
We were looking for flags with three stripes.
Chad, is it right, and how many people said it?
You were pretty confident if it was right, it might go all the way down.
7 we scored with Russia, 14 with the Netherlands.
If this goes all the way down to zero, you leave here with £2,500.
-You've done it! Very well done. Very well done indeed. Fantastic.
-CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
Congratulations. Chad was a pointless answer,
which means you'll be leaving here with a jackpot for your charity of £2,500.
-Very, very well done indeed.
-Very well played, gents, very well deserved, going to a very deserving cause.
CJ, you say it's similar to the Romanian flag.
Chad and Romania are the only two countries with identical flags.
It's blue, yellow and red vertical stripes. Let's look at some of the pointless answers.
There's seven, five of them in Africa. Let's look at all of them.
Congratulations if you got any of those at home and congratulations to you guys as well. Very well played.
Thanks once again to our winning celebrities Shaun and CJ
who go away with today's jackpot of £2,500.
Thank you to our other celebrity pairs Chris and Martin, Paul and Stacey, and Ray and Emma.
Join us next time when we put more obscure knowledge to the test on Pointless.
-Meanwhile, it's goodbye from Richard.
-And it's goodbye from me. Goodbye.
