CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:00:210:00:24

Thank you very much. I'm Alexander Armstrong and a very warm welcome

0:00:260:00:30

to special celebrity edition of Pointless, the quiz show

0:00:300:00:32

that puts obscure knowledge to the test.

0:00:320:00:34

Now, every single question on Pointless has been asked to 100 people before the show.

0:00:340:00:39

To be in with a chance of winning our final round jackpot,

0:00:390:00:41

our celebrities need to come up with the answers that the fewest of those 100 people could think of.

0:00:410:00:46

Let's meet today's Pointless celebrities.

0:00:460:00:49

First up, we welcome Mark Millar and Julia Kendall.

0:00:530:00:57

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:00:570:00:59

Of course, we know you both from DIY SOS.

0:01:020:01:05

So all those DIY SOS-type questions you're going to have completely sewn up, aren't you?

0:01:050:01:09

-Well, we hope so, but...

-They won't come up, will they?

0:01:090:01:12

-They won't come up. We won't have any of them, will we?

-I've no idea.

0:01:120:01:15

It's in the hands of the big man. Who knows?

0:01:150:01:18

Julia, what would you like to see? Nominate something you'd love to see.

0:01:180:01:21

-What would be your perfect Pointless category?

-Music's kind of all right.

0:01:210:01:24

-Good. What kind of music?

-Classical. Opera maybe. Except, of course,

0:01:240:01:29

-something like that might come up and I'll make a complete idiot of myself.

-I'm sure you won't.

0:01:290:01:33

-I'm sure you will.

-I'm sure you won't.

0:01:330:01:37

-Mark, anything you'd particularly not like to see come up?

-Geography.

0:01:370:01:41

I never know where I am.

0:01:410:01:43

I just wandered round Belfast to get a pint of milk one morning and I ended up here.

0:01:430:01:48

Anyway, listen, it's great to have you on the show.

0:01:480:01:50

-Thank you very much for coming on. Very, very best of luck.

-Thank you.

0:01:500:01:53

Next, please welcome Rachel Riley and Mark Durden-Smith.

0:01:530:01:56

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:01:560:01:59

-Now, of course, Rachel, we know you from Countdown.

-Hopefully.

0:02:030:02:06

And, Mark, we know you from countless things.

0:02:060:02:09

That's very kind of you to say so.

0:02:090:02:11

-You're probably wondering why we are together.

-It has crossed my mind.

0:02:110:02:15

-We were both at maths genius club...

-Yes, we were.

0:02:150:02:18

..and I was doing the catering.

0:02:180:02:20

-Mark comes on Countdown as one of his many programs.

-Do you?

0:02:220:02:26

To pretend I'm clever.

0:02:260:02:27

But I've always got a dictionary in front of me, so it's quite easy.

0:02:270:02:30

-She's very clever.

-We know you are very clever. You are very clever.

0:02:300:02:34

Well, if anything...

0:02:340:02:35

numbers one through 100, 1,000, even, come up,

0:02:350:02:37

-I'll be all right.

-All the way up to 1,000.

-Steady on. Up to four figures.

0:02:370:02:42

Very best of luck to you. It's great to have you on the show.

0:02:420:02:45

And, next, please welcome Sonia and Mark Moses.

0:02:450:02:48

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:02:480:02:50

Sonia, we know you from Eurovision and being an '80s singing sensation.

0:02:530:02:58

-Would you like to introduce your teammate?

-This is my hubby, Mark.

0:02:580:03:03

We've been together... We met at school, actually,

0:03:030:03:05

when we were both 16. Yeah. We've been together 25 years now.

0:03:050:03:10

That's amazing. Now, then, Mark, what are you hoping is going to come up today?

0:03:100:03:13

What's going to be your dream Pointless topic?

0:03:130:03:16

Maybe a bit of geography or just general knowledge.

0:03:160:03:20

-No literature cos I'm terrible.

-No literature.

0:03:200:03:22

-Sonia, obviously music is going to be strong for you.

-Yes.

-What else?

0:03:220:03:25

-I love my soap operas.

-Good.

-I love Coronation Street, in particular.

0:03:250:03:29

I love all the celebrity goss and the reality shows

0:03:290:03:33

-and stuff like that.

-You and Richard both.

0:03:330:03:36

So I'm hoping that will come up. And films. We love our films.

0:03:360:03:39

Very good indeed. Welcome to the show, Sonia and Mark.

0:03:390:03:41

It's lovely to have you here. Very best of luck.

0:03:410:03:43

And, finally, we've got Gareth Thomas and Andrew Stone.

0:03:430:03:46

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:03:460:03:50

Well, Gareth, obviously, we know you, Welsh rugby legend.

0:03:500:03:55

And, Andrew, we know you from Pineapple Dance Studios.

0:03:550:03:57

And much more importantly, the front man of Starman.

0:03:570:04:00

-I'm solo now.

-You've gone solo? How's it going?

0:04:000:04:03

It's going well, really well.

0:04:030:04:04

I'm releasing in America and here soon.

0:04:040:04:07

Gareth, how on earth do you know Andrew Stone?

0:04:070:04:09

-Where did your paths cross?

-Well, I was a roadie for Starman.

0:04:090:04:13

-We've all done that.

-Obviously.

0:04:130:04:16

-We were in, briefly, the Big Brother house together.

-Thanks for that.

0:04:160:04:20

-Who left first?

-I knew this question was going to come up. I did.

0:04:200:04:23

This isn't part of the quiz.

0:04:230:04:26

-I did.

-Did you?

-Yes.

0:04:260:04:27

So, Gareth, obviously sport, rugby, in particular.

0:04:270:04:31

-What else is going to be good for you?

-Maybe pop music.

0:04:310:04:37

What's your favourite artist? Your favourite pop artist?

0:04:370:04:40

I like this One Direction at the moment. They're kind of cool.

0:04:400:04:45

-They're big, big friends of the show.

-We love One Direction.

-Sorry, the show's big friends of theirs.

0:04:450:04:49

-I'm not sure they're particularly aware of us.

-My favourite...

0:04:490:04:52

-I'm sure they are.

-No, they are. Zayn, Zayn is a big fan.

-Is he?

0:04:520:04:56

-Yeah, Zayn loves it.

-Zayn...?

-You're more of a Harry fan, aren't you?

0:04:560:04:59

Harry... Yeah, Harry. And the little one with the face like a pie.

0:04:590:05:02

-Niall.

-Little Niall.

-Tiny Niall.

-With a face like a pie.

0:05:020:05:06

Caution - filling may be hot.

0:05:060:05:09

Listen, Gareth and Andrew, it's lovely to have you on the show.

0:05:120:05:14

A warm welcome and very, very best of luck.

0:05:140:05:16

We look forward to discovering all your hidden knowledge throughout the show.

0:05:160:05:20

There's only one person left for me to introduce.

0:05:200:05:22

You can barely tell he's had botox. He's my Pointless friend.

0:05:220:05:25

-He's Richard.

-Hiya.

0:05:250:05:27

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:05:270:05:29

-How are you?

-Seldom better.

-Well, this should be fun, shouldn't it?

0:05:330:05:37

-Yeah. I think great fun.

-I'm going to make a fairly confident prediction today.

-Yep.

0:05:370:05:40

I think Mark is going to win. That's my opinion.

0:05:400:05:44

I have to say, I always like it on these shows

0:05:440:05:46

when someone brings a daughter or a husband or something like that

0:05:460:05:49

-cos it gives you more insight into a celebrity's life.

-Love that.

0:05:490:05:52

Also, you see a proper row cos celebrities are always lovely people...

0:05:520:05:56

But as soon as it's husband and wife, it's always my favourite.

0:05:560:05:59

And Round One, DIY SOS Mark is not going to like.

0:05:590:06:04

-But Round Two, I think everyone's going to like.

-Thanks very much, Richard.

0:06:040:06:07

All our questions on Pointless were put to 100 people before the show.

0:06:070:06:10

But we're looking for the obscure answers they didn't get.

0:06:100:06:12

To be in with a chance of winning our jackpot,

0:06:120:06:14

our celebrities must score as few points as possible.

0:06:140:06:17

Now, what everyone's trying to do, of course, is to find a pointless answer,

0:06:170:06:21

an answer none of our 100 people gave. Each time that happens, we will add 250 quid to the jackpot.

0:06:210:06:25

As today's show is a celebrity special

0:06:250:06:27

and each of our celebrities is playing for a nominated charity,

0:06:270:06:30

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

0:06:300:06:34

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:06:340:06:37

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

0:06:390:06:42

Now, in this first round, each of you must give me one answer

0:06:470:06:50

and you cannot confer with your partner.

0:06:500:06:52

Whichever pair has the highest score at the end of the round

0:06:520:06:55

will be eliminated, so try and make sure it's not you.

0:06:550:06:58

If you give me an incorrect answer, you will score the maximum of 100 points, so try and avoid those. OK.

0:06:580:07:03

Our first category today is

0:07:030:07:05

-US Geography, Mark.

-No!

0:07:050:07:08

US Geography. Can you all decide in your pairs who's going to go first,

0:07:080:07:12

who's going to go second?

0:07:120:07:13

And whoever's going first, can you please step up to the podium?

0:07:130:07:16

We gave 100 people 100 seconds to name

0:07:200:07:23

as many US states that end in a vowel as they could.

0:07:230:07:28

US states that end in a vowel. Richard.

0:07:280:07:31

Quite simply, you're looking for any US state which ends in a vowel.

0:07:310:07:34

-Mark Durden-Smith, that's A, E, I, O, U.

-Don't pick on me.

0:07:340:07:38

Pick on the big rugby player. They're always a bit brainless.

0:07:380:07:42

-Oooh.

-Oh, wow. OK.

0:07:420:07:44

-Getting nasty, isn't it?

-I would pick on Sonia rather than Gareth.

0:07:460:07:49

-I really would.

-He's so on it.

0:07:490:07:51

Sonia's one of my heroes. I can't do that.

0:07:510:07:53

-I love Sonia.

-Right. Now, then, Mark and Julia,

0:07:530:07:56

you all drew lots before the show and today you get to go first.

0:07:560:07:59

So US states that end in a vowel.

0:07:590:08:02

I'm going to go for...

0:08:020:08:04

Minnesota.

0:08:040:08:06

-I knew you were going to say that. I was thinking that one.

-Good call.

0:08:060:08:10

-Don't ask me to spell it.

-I shan't.

-Thanks.

0:08:100:08:14

OK. Minnesota, says Mark. Good call, says Julia.

0:08:140:08:17

Let's see if it's right and if it is, let's how many people said it. Minnesota.

0:08:170:08:21

It's right.

0:08:210:08:23

4.

0:08:280:08:29

APPLAUSE

0:08:290:08:32

That's an excellent answer and an excellent score, Mark.

0:08:320:08:35

-Very well done. Richard.

-Great start to the show, Mark. Terrific answer.

0:08:350:08:39

-Known as the Gopher State or the North Star State.

-Mark.

0:08:390:08:43

I will say...

0:08:450:08:46

-..Hawaii.

-Hawaii. Let's see if it's right

0:08:480:08:50

and if it is, let's see how many of our 100 people said Hawaii.

0:08:500:08:53

12.

0:09:000:09:02

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:09:020:09:05

12 for Hawaii.

0:09:050:09:07

Yes, the Aloha State. You should get less points for it.

0:09:080:09:10

-It ends in three vowels. Hawaii.

-Surely.

-That's pretty good.

0:09:100:09:13

Good. Now, then, Mark... for a change...

0:09:130:09:18

Mark, we're looking for a US state that ends in a vowel.

0:09:180:09:21

As ever, of course, you're trying to find the one you think the fewest of our 100 people knew.

0:09:210:09:25

OK. There's a couple that I'm thinking of. Which is the least one?

0:09:250:09:31

-I'll say North Dakota.

-North Dakota.

0:09:310:09:34

That sounds particularly good in a Liverpudlian accent, doesn't it?

0:09:340:09:37

-North Dakota. Just one more time.

-North Dakota.

-Yeah, that's good.

0:09:370:09:41

OK. Let's see if it's right and if it is, how many of our 100 people said North Dakota.

0:09:410:09:45

It's right.

0:09:460:09:47

Look at that! 5.

0:09:520:09:54

APPLAUSE

0:09:540:09:56

5.

0:09:560:09:57

-A great score.

-Very well played, Mark.

0:10:000:10:03

A good start to the show. It's the Flickertail State, North Dakota.

0:10:030:10:07

-I don't need to tell you that.

-No, you don't.

0:10:070:10:09

Rugby, North Dakota, supposed to be the very centre of North America.

0:10:090:10:13

There we are. Thank you very much indeed. Now, then, Gareth.

0:10:130:10:16

-Remember, we are looking for US states that end in a vowel.

-Now, I think it's a state...

0:10:160:10:20

Is Iowa a state?

0:10:200:10:23

Let's find out.

0:10:230:10:24

Iowa, is it a state and if it is, how many people said it?

0:10:240:10:28

-Absolutely right, Gareth.

-Yes!

0:10:300:10:32

7.

0:10:360:10:38

7 for Iowa.

0:10:390:10:43

Good answer.

0:10:430:10:44

He's just delighted to beat Mark, isn't he?

0:10:460:10:48

That's all I wanted.

0:10:480:10:50

The Hawkeye State. That's a very good first round from everybody. Very well played.

0:10:500:10:54

Thank you very much. Let's have a look at the scores as we're halfway through the round.

0:10:540:10:58

Mark and Julia, 4. Lovely. Looking very safe there indeed.

0:10:580:11:02

Up to 5 for Mark and Sonia.

0:11:020:11:04

And Andrew and Gareth on 7.

0:11:040:11:07

And then, whoa, up to 12. Oh!

0:11:070:11:10

-So, Rachel...

-Painful.

-Thank God for you.

0:11:100:11:12

-I've got to do the heavy lifting.

-Yeah, we need that. We're going to come back down the line.

0:11:120:11:16

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

0:11:160:11:20

OK. We are looking for American states that end in a vowel.

0:11:210:11:26

Now, then, Andrew, the high-scorers on 12 are Rachel and Mark. You're on 7.

0:11:260:11:30

A score of 4 or less from you

0:11:300:11:32

will definitely see you into the next round.

0:11:320:11:35

-You know I'm dyslexic so I'm hoping I get this right.

-OK.

0:11:350:11:38

Um, Orlando.

0:11:380:11:40

-Orlando.

-What are you smiling for?

0:11:400:11:44

Oh, dear.

0:11:440:11:46

-It's come up before, Orlando.

-Has it?

0:11:460:11:49

I don't think it was right then either.

0:11:490:11:53

-Unlucky, bud.

-OK. Orlando.

0:11:530:11:55

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

0:11:550:11:58

Bad luck, Andrew. I'm sorry. I'm afraid that's an incorrect answer.

0:12:010:12:05

Takes your total up to 107. It's scored you 100. I'm sorry. Richard.

0:12:050:12:09

Sorry, Andrew. It's a city, not a state, Orlando.

0:12:090:12:12

-It is in America, though.

-Yes.

0:12:120:12:14

Now, then, Sonia. I've got some great news.

0:12:140:12:17

The high-scorers are on 107.

0:12:170:12:18

You're on 5. You are through whatever happens.

0:12:180:12:21

Even if you score 100 points, you are still in the game.

0:12:210:12:24

-Nevada.

-Nevada. Nevada.

0:12:240:12:29

-Have you played Nevada?

-We got married in Nevada.

0:12:290:12:32

You got married...?! Fantastic.

0:12:320:12:35

-Wouldn't forget that, would you?

-No, you certainly won't. OK. Nevada.

0:12:350:12:38

Let's see if it's right and if it is, how many people said it. Nevada.

0:12:380:12:43

Absolutely right.

0:12:430:12:44

8 for Nevada. Very well done. Takes your total up to 13.

0:12:500:12:54

Well played, Sonia. Very good answer. Very good team work as well.

0:12:570:13:00

It's interesting you got married in Nevada,

0:13:000:13:02

yet it wasn't the first state that came to Mark's mind.

0:13:020:13:06

-I never thought of that.

-What have you been up to in North Dakota, Mark?

0:13:060:13:10

I think I heard a song once.

0:13:100:13:12

That's why I like having husband and wife teams on the show.

0:13:120:13:15

Cos you can start stuff like that. Thanks very much, Richard.

0:13:150:13:19

Now, then, Rachel. Andrew has thrown you a lifeline there, quite frankly.

0:13:190:13:24

They are on 107. You are on 12 which means...

0:13:240:13:27

-Listen, you know you don't have to explain the maths to Rachel, don't you?

-I know!

0:13:270:13:31

-You know this anyway, but 94 or less.

-OK.

0:13:320:13:36

Um...

0:13:360:13:37

I'm going to go for Georgia.

0:13:370:13:39

Georgia. Is it right? How many people said it?

0:13:390:13:42

Absolutely right and you are through. Well done.

0:13:430:13:46

6.

0:13:510:13:52

Cracking score. Takes your total up to 18.

0:13:520:13:56

Well played, Rachel. The Empire State of the South.

0:13:580:14:01

Its motto is Wisdom, Justice, and Moderation.

0:14:010:14:04

LAUGHTER

0:14:040:14:08

Thanks very much, Richard. Julia, more good news.

0:14:080:14:10

-You are through to the next round whatever happens.

-Phew.

0:14:100:14:13

You will not overtake Andrew and Gareth's high score.

0:14:130:14:17

That's probably a good thing.

0:14:170:14:19

-OK. Let's try Louisiana.

-Louisiana.

0:14:190:14:23

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

0:14:230:14:26

It's right.

0:14:260:14:28

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:14:340:14:36

What about that?! 5.

0:14:360:14:39

It scores you 1 and gives you a total of 5. That's your total!

0:14:390:14:44

-Single figures. The best answer of the round.

-Well played, Julia.

0:14:440:14:47

The Pelican State. If you're playing along at home, there were five answers

0:14:470:14:51

which would have scored one point. Well done if you said any of these. Let's take a look.

0:14:510:14:55

Montana, Missouri, Louisiana - all of those would have scored you 1.

0:14:550:15:00

As would Pennsylvania and New Hampshire.

0:15:000:15:02

So very well done if you said any of those.

0:15:020:15:05

Just to clear up, Orlando is a city in Florida, I'm afraid. Florida would have been a good answer.

0:15:050:15:10

Florida would have got you 22 points. It would still have knocked you out,

0:15:100:15:14

but it would have been a correct answer.

0:15:140:15:16

Thanks very much, Richard. So at the end of the first round,

0:15:160:15:19

the losing pair with the highest score, I'm afraid it's Andrew and Gareth.

0:15:190:15:23

Oh, dear. I'm sorry. It was a tough call, that one.

0:15:240:15:27

-Have you been to the States much, Andrew?

-I've been to New York.

0:15:270:15:31

-And LA.

-Just no places that end in a vowel.

-No!

0:15:310:15:35

I'm so sorry. It means we have to say goodbye to you, far too soon.

0:15:350:15:38

The answers they gave were amazing. I'd have probably said those

0:15:380:15:41

if I'd have known more and still gone out, so well done.

0:15:410:15:44

Well, it's been lovely having you on the show. We release you back into the community.

0:15:440:15:49

But for the remaining three pairs, it's now time for Round Two.

0:15:510:15:54

Obviously, there's only room for two celebrity pairs

0:16:000:16:02

in our head-to-head round, so one of the teams in front of me now

0:16:020:16:05

will be leaving us at the end of this round. OK.

0:16:050:16:08

Our category for Round Two is...

0:16:080:16:11

Music Awards.

0:16:110:16:12

Can you all decide in your pairs who's going first, who's going second?

0:16:140:16:18

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

0:16:180:16:21

-OK.

-Our Round Two question concerns...

0:16:230:16:26

-Oh, no.

-Winners of the Grammy for Record of the Year. Richard.

0:16:290:16:32

On each pass, we're going to show you the names of six famous songs

0:16:320:16:36

that won the Grammy for Record of the Year. We'll also give you the year in which they won it.

0:16:360:16:40

We just need you to tell us which group or artist won the Grammy

0:16:400:16:43

with that song in that year. Very best of luck.

0:16:430:16:45

-12 in all to have a go at home.

-So here we are.

0:16:450:16:47

We are looking for the artist that had a hit with each of these

0:16:470:16:50

Grammy-winning records. And we have got on our list...

0:16:500:16:53

I'll read those all one final time.

0:17:060:17:08

There we are. Six Grammy award-winning records.

0:17:220:17:25

You just have to say which artist released them. Julia.

0:17:250:17:29

-Hmmm.

-Julia.

0:17:290:17:31

-Alexander.

-Are you happy with that?

-Er, yeah...

0:17:310:17:35

-Are you?

-There's a couple.

0:17:350:17:38

-I do know a couple.

-This is good.

0:17:380:17:40

I'm going to go with The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face.

0:17:400:17:44

I think it was Roberta Flack.

0:17:440:17:46

Roberta Flack for The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face.

0:17:460:17:49

Let's see if that's right and if it is, how many people knew that answer. Roberta Flack.

0:17:490:17:54

Absolutely right.

0:17:540:17:55

It's a great answer, Julia. Well done. Single figures. 9.

0:18:000:18:05

Lovely low score. Roberta Flack.

0:18:050:18:08

Good answer, Julia. Great answer in the first round, another great answer there.

0:18:080:18:12

-Written by Ewan MacColl.

-Now, then, Rachel.

0:18:120:18:17

Well, I think I know three of the other ones.

0:18:170:18:21

I'm going with Use Somebody and Kings of Leon.

0:18:210:18:24

Kings of Leon, Use Somebody, says Rachel. Kings of Leon.

0:18:240:18:27

Let's see if it's right and if it is, let's see how many people knew that answer. Kings of Leon.

0:18:270:18:31

Absolutely right, Rachel. Brilliant answer.

0:18:320:18:35

15.

0:18:390:18:40

-15. Good answer. Good score. Kings of Leon.

-Well played, Rachel.

0:18:440:18:47

Another good answer. A number two hit in the UK. Kings of Leon.

0:18:470:18:50

-The Followill family.

-There we go. Mark.

0:18:500:18:54

Mark. You're the last person to have this board.

0:18:540:18:57

You can talk us through it if you like and fill in all the blanks.

0:18:570:19:00

I think I know all of the others. I think U2 is the top.

0:19:000:19:04

Hotel California is the Eagles.

0:19:040:19:05

And Simon and Garfunkel, Mrs Robinson.

0:19:050:19:08

-I think I'll go for...

-You've missed one out.

0:19:090:19:13

-I've realised I don't know that one.

-Oh, right.

0:19:130:19:16

I think I'll go for...

0:19:160:19:18

..U2. Beautiful day.

0:19:190:19:23

OK. Beautiful Day, U2, you are saying.

0:19:230:19:25

OK. Let's see if that's right and if it is, let's see how many people said U2.

0:19:250:19:29

Absolutely right.

0:19:310:19:32

Wow. 32.

0:19:370:19:38

Extraordinary. 32. Very high score for that. Great song, obviously.

0:19:420:19:47

Well played, Mark. You filled in the board very nicely as well

0:19:470:19:50

and you picked the right one of the ones you knew.

0:19:500:19:52

Because Hotel California, absolutely right, was by the Eagles, but that would have scored you 49.

0:19:520:19:56

Mrs Robinson is Simon and Garfunkel, that would have scored you 41.

0:19:560:20:00

Now, the best answer on the board, is Need You Now,

0:20:000:20:02

a band who are much bigger in the States than they are over here -

0:20:020:20:05

a country act, Lady Antebellum. Would have scored four points.

0:20:050:20:10

Very well done if you said that. To give you an idea of how many Grammys they give out...

0:20:100:20:13

They also won the Grammy for the best country performance by a duo

0:20:130:20:17

-or group with vocals. That's specific, isn't it?

-Isn't it?!

0:20:170:20:21

-We should enter that.

-I think we won it in 2004.

-So we did! There we go.

0:20:210:20:27

-Just beat Sonia and Mark, didn't we?

-Yeah, we did. Heady days.

0:20:270:20:31

OK. We're halfway through the round. Let's take a look at the scores as they stand. Julia and Mark,

0:20:310:20:35

looking amazingly strong. Another very strong turn from them.

0:20:350:20:39

Nice low score of 9.

0:20:390:20:40

Then we come up to 15, where we find Rachel and Mark

0:20:400:20:43

looking pretty strong. Then Sonia and Mark on 32.

0:20:430:20:46

Sonia, luckily,

0:20:460:20:48

you couldn't be more at home in this category if you tried.

0:20:480:20:52

And you get first pick of the next board. So you're going to have to find a really low score

0:20:520:20:55

and hope that's enough to keep you in the game. Very best of luck.

0:20:550:20:58

We're going to come back down the line. Can the second players please take their places at the podium?

0:20:580:21:04

OK. We're going to put six more songs on the board and here they come.

0:21:040:21:08

Good luck. We have got...

0:21:080:21:10

I was wondering if I could just say them altogether

0:21:240:21:27

and turn it into one big, long lyric.

0:21:270:21:29

Don't know why, what's love got to do with it?

0:21:290:21:31

Strangers in the night, rolling in the deep, I honestly love you just the way you are.

0:21:310:21:35

APPLAUSE

0:21:350:21:38

And the good news is, you've just won a Grammy.

0:21:380:21:41

Wow.

0:21:430:21:44

Now, Sonia.

0:21:440:21:47

-Um, Tina Turner, What's Love Got To Do With It?

-OK. You are on 32.

0:21:470:21:52

You are the high-scorers.

0:21:520:21:53

You're saying Tina Turner, What's Love Got To Do With It?

0:21:530:21:56

Let's see. Tina Turner, is it right? How many people said it?

0:21:560:22:00

Absolutely right.

0:22:000:22:01

40.

0:22:040:22:06

40. Takes your total up to 72. Richard.

0:22:070:22:11

Pretty big score for that song.

0:22:110:22:12

It's also the title of the film of her life as well. Tina Turner.

0:22:120:22:16

Now, then, Mark.

0:22:160:22:18

-HE SIGHS

-Oh, no!

0:22:180:22:20

It's just such a shame.

0:22:220:22:25

She's so clever. Can't you get someone else in to do this question?

0:22:250:22:29

I'm only confident of one.

0:22:290:22:33

So I'm going to say...

0:22:330:22:36

Adele, Rolling in the Deep, because it's the only one I know.

0:22:360:22:40

Rolling in the Deep, Adele, says Mark.

0:22:400:22:44

OK. Here's your red line.

0:22:440:22:45

That's what you want to be getting below.

0:22:450:22:48

The high-scorers on 72, Sonia and Mark.

0:22:480:22:51

You want to be getting 56 or less. Adele. Rolling in the Deep.

0:22:510:22:55

Is it right? How many people said it?

0:22:550:22:57

Absolutely right.

0:22:580:23:01

You've done it! 41.

0:23:010:23:04

Very well done indeed. Good work.

0:23:040:23:06

41 takes your total up to 56 and sees you into the head-to-head.

0:23:080:23:12

-Good work, Mark.

-Yes, the Record Of The Year, 2012.

0:23:120:23:14

Again, a number two hit just like Use Somebody.

0:23:140:23:17

She broke every single sales record going, Adele. Both sides of the Atlantic. Amazing.

0:23:170:23:21

Amazing. Now, then, Mark. You're on 9.

0:23:210:23:24

The high scorers on 72 are Mark and Sonia.

0:23:240:23:26

That means a score of 62 or less keeps you in the game.

0:23:260:23:30

Remember, we are looking for the groups or artists who had

0:23:300:23:33

hit records with these Grammy-winning singles.

0:23:330:23:36

-I actually don't know any of them. I'm going to have to guess.

-Oh, no. Don't!

0:23:360:23:41

-I'm in a state of shock.

-No!

0:23:410:23:43

-I don't recognise any of them.

-Oh, no. Come on.

-Honestly, I don't.

0:23:460:23:50

I Honestly Love You...

0:23:500:23:52

but that was 1974 and things have changed since then.

0:23:520:23:55

LAUGHTER

0:23:550:23:59

Just The Way You Are...

0:23:590:24:02

Is it Elvis Costello?

0:24:030:24:05

Just The Way You Are, Elvis Costello, says Mark.

0:24:050:24:09

Is it right? How many people said it?

0:24:090:24:11

Bad luck, Mark. Bad luck. I'm afraid that's an incorrect answer.

0:24:150:24:19

-It scores you 100 points.

-I'm sorry.

-I knew I shouldn't have brought you!

0:24:190:24:22

-She's turned already.

-Sorry, Mark. Not Elvis Costello.

0:24:220:24:26

It was Billy Joel. Just The Way You Are.

0:24:260:24:28

# Just the way you are. #

0:24:280:24:30

-Remember?

-No, I don't remember.

0:24:300:24:31

-Julia, what would you have gone for for Strangers in the Night?

-That would have been...

0:24:310:24:35

It's one of the old crooners. Isn't that Frank Sinatra?

0:24:350:24:38

It is Frank Sinatra. Absolutely right.

0:24:380:24:39

That would have scored 24 points. Would have seen you safely through.

0:24:390:24:43

-Don't Know Why from 2002. Xander, do you know that one?

-No.

0:24:430:24:47

-It was Norah Jones.

-Norah Jones. Of course!

0:24:470:24:50

Would have scored you four points.

0:24:500:24:52

-And I Honestly Love You. This is the best answer on the board.

-No.

0:24:520:24:57

-Olivia Newton-John is the answer. Three points.

-There we are.

0:24:570:25:01

Thanks very much, Richard. So at the end of Round Two, the losing celebrity pair...

0:25:010:25:05

-Mark, you're not going to be forgiven.

-I know I'm not.

-No.

0:25:050:25:09

I know I'm not. I just hope Mark wins.

0:25:090:25:12

-Frank Sinatra, you can hear it now, can't you?

-Of course I can.

0:25:130:25:18

I think Julia thinks it would be better if it was DIY.

0:25:180:25:20

And Mark is thinking SOS.

0:25:200:25:23

LAUGHTER

0:25:230:25:25

-Mark and Julia, it's been brilliant having you on the show.

-Thank you.

0:25:250:25:28

Thanks so much for coming. Lovely contestants.

0:25:280:25:30

But for the remaining two celebrity pairs, things are about to get

0:25:320:25:35

even more exciting now as we enter the head-to-head.

0:25:350:25:37

Congratulations, Rachel and Mark, Sonia and Mark.

0:25:430:25:46

You are now only one round away from the final

0:25:460:25:48

and a chance to play for the jackpot which currently stands at £2,500.

0:25:480:25:53

You are now going to go head-to-head and the first pair to win two questions

0:25:580:26:01

will be playing for that jackpot.

0:26:010:26:03

The great news is, from here on in, you're allowed to confer.

0:26:030:26:07

You are now a team. Or two teams.

0:26:070:26:10

Sonia and Mark, you had a bit of a lifeline thrown there, didn't you?

0:26:100:26:15

We did. I thought that was it for us.

0:26:150:26:17

And Mark Durden-Smith, you need to pull your socks up.

0:26:170:26:23

Rachel has been carrying me through the first two rounds.

0:26:230:26:25

I knew nothing about geography or music, so I'm glad they're out of the way.

0:26:250:26:29

Geography and music, both came up and you excelled.

0:26:290:26:32

-A nice question about maths now would be appreciated.

-Yes, please.

0:26:320:26:35

Perfect. Very good. Well, the very best of luck to both pairs.

0:26:350:26:38

Let's play the head-to-head.

0:26:380:26:39

Here comes your first question and it concerns...

0:26:450:26:49

Superhero Nemeses.

0:26:490:26:51

Ooh.

0:26:510:26:52

-Superhero Nemeses. Richard.

-Yes.

0:26:520:26:54

We're going to show you five images of villains from superhero films.

0:26:540:26:57

Can you identify them and pick the most obscure, please?

0:26:570:27:01

We're looking for their villain name, not their human name.

0:27:010:27:05

-Good.

-Villain name.

-Villain name. OK. Let's reveal our five villains.

0:27:050:27:09

And here they come. We have got...

0:27:090:27:11

There we are. Now, Rachel and Mark, you've played best

0:27:240:27:27

throughout the show so far, so you get to go first.

0:27:270:27:29

-OK.

-OK.

0:27:300:27:33

Shall we go for it? OK.

0:27:330:27:35

We're going to go with Magneto. Number E. Or letter E, rather!

0:27:350:27:38

She's obsessed by numbers.

0:27:380:27:40

-Letter

-E. Letter E, Magneto.

0:27:410:27:44

Magneto, letter E, say Rachel and Mark. Sonia and Mark.

0:27:440:27:48

We know two.

0:27:480:27:50

The first one we've got an idea, but I think I'm going to pronounce it wrong.

0:27:500:27:54

-Say who you think they might be.

-A is out of Superman.

0:27:540:27:57

-Do you know his name?

-I think it...

0:27:570:28:00

-No, we're not saying that.

-B.

0:28:000:28:03

-B, we're going to go for B.

-You say it.

-Ming the Merciless.

0:28:030:28:06

Ming the Merciless also sounds great in a Liverpudlian accent.

0:28:060:28:10

So we have Magneto and we have Ming the Merciless.

0:28:100:28:14

Rachel and Mark said Magneto. Let's see if that's right

0:28:140:28:16

and if it is, let's see how many people said Magneto.

0:28:160:28:19

Absolutely right.

0:28:210:28:22

11.

0:28:270:28:28

Very, very well done. Great answer.

0:28:300:28:33

Now Ming the Merciless. What do you think? 11? Lower than?

0:28:330:28:38

-Higher, we reckon.

-We think it's higher than that. It's from Flash Gordon.

0:28:380:28:41

OK. Ming the Merciless. 11 is what you have to beat. Is it right?

0:28:410:28:44

How many people said it?

0:28:440:28:46

It's right.

0:28:460:28:48

36.

0:28:510:28:53

-I've never heard of him.

-Rachel and Mark...

0:28:530:28:56

-I didn't recognise him at all.

-..you are the heroes,

0:28:560:28:59

Sonia and Mark, the villains of this particular piece.

0:28:590:29:01

After one question, Rachel and Mark, you're up 1-0. Richard.

0:29:010:29:04

Magneto, the enemy of the X-Men, played by Sir Ian McKellen.

0:29:040:29:07

A very good answer. A couple of answers that would have beaten it.

0:29:070:29:10

You're quite right, Mark. A is from Superman.

0:29:100:29:13

It's General Zod.

0:29:130:29:15

General Zod would have scored six points and would have given you the point.

0:29:150:29:19

Played by Terence Stamp. There's Ming.

0:29:190:29:21

C is Catwoman. Probably best avoided.

0:29:210:29:24

Scored 88 points.

0:29:240:29:27

The clue is in the ears. And D, do you know that one?

0:29:270:29:31

It's Mickey Rourke. But that's not the villain name.

0:29:310:29:35

It's Whiplash from Iron Man 2. Very scary.

0:29:350:29:38

-Would have scored you two points.

-Wow. Thank you very much, Richard.

0:29:380:29:43

OK. Here comes your second question. Sonia and Mark, you have to win this to stay in the game.

0:29:430:29:47

Very best of luck. Here it comes. It concerns...

0:29:470:29:50

World War II.

0:29:500:29:52

World War II. Richard.

0:29:530:29:55

I'm simply going to show you five clues to facts about World War II.

0:29:550:29:58

-Can you give us the most obscure answer here, please?

-OK.

0:29:580:30:02

Let's reveal our five clues to facts about World War II.

0:30:020:30:05

And we have got...

0:30:050:30:06

The port, the location of the 1940 evacuation

0:30:060:30:09

of Allied troops from Northern France.

0:30:090:30:11

The Buckinghamshire country estate

0:30:110:30:14

that served as HQ of Allied code breakers.

0:30:140:30:16

The French city where the full Nazi surrender was signed on the 7th of May in 1945.

0:30:160:30:21

The demilitarised zone that Hitler's troops entered in 1936.

0:30:210:30:25

And the name of the German air force.

0:30:250:30:28

I'll read those all one last time.

0:30:280:30:29

The port that was the location of the 1940 evacuation

0:30:290:30:32

of Allied troops from Northern France.

0:30:320:30:34

The Buckinghamshire country estate

0:30:340:30:36

that served as HQ of Allied code breakers.

0:30:360:30:38

The French city where the full Nazi surrender was signed on the 7th of May in 1945.

0:30:380:30:43

The demilitarised zone that Hitler's troops entered in 1936.

0:30:430:30:47

And the name of the German air force.

0:30:470:30:51

There we are. Five clues to facts about the Second World War.

0:30:510:30:54

Sonia and Mark, you go first.

0:30:540:30:57

THEY WHISPER

0:30:570:31:00

OK. The second one down, Bletchley House.

0:31:020:31:05

You're going to say Bletchley House.

0:31:050:31:07

Bletchley House for the Buckinghamshire country estate.

0:31:070:31:10

Rachel and Mark. You can talk us through the board.

0:31:100:31:13

-Well, we're allowed to go for the same one if we think it's wrong, aren't we?

-Oh, yes.

0:31:130:31:17

-I think it's Bletchley Park.

-I love her.

0:31:170:31:21

Versailles... Is it the Rhineland? The Luftwaffe.

0:31:210:31:25

It's Dunkirk, isn't it?

0:31:250:31:26

Bletchley Park. Full Nazi surrender was signed in Versailles.

0:31:260:31:30

-Treaty of Versailles.

-You think it's Rhineland and then the Luftwaffe?

0:31:300:31:33

I think it's the Rhineland and the Luftwaffe.

0:31:330:31:35

I think it's Bletchley Park not Bletchley House.

0:31:350:31:37

I think I agree with you, so we're both in agreement.

0:31:370:31:41

OK. You're going to submit Bletchley Park.

0:31:410:31:42

-We have Bletchley House versus Bletchley Park.

-Yep.

0:31:420:31:45

OK. Sonia and Mark have said Bletchley House. Is it right?

0:31:450:31:49

How many people said it?

0:31:490:31:50

No! Bad luck. Not Bletchley House.

0:31:540:31:58

It is, we think, Bletchley Park.

0:31:580:32:01

Let's put it to the test. Bletchley Park. All it has to be is right.

0:32:010:32:06

And it is right. You are through to the final.

0:32:060:32:09

Let's see how far it goes down.

0:32:090:32:11

29. Well done.

0:32:110:32:14

APPLAUSE

0:32:140:32:17

Very, very, very well done indeed, Rachel and Mark.

0:32:170:32:21

After only two questions, you are through to the final

0:32:210:32:24

-in straight sets. 2-0. Well done. Richard.

-That's a very tough way to go out, Mark and Sonia.

0:32:240:32:29

Sorry about that. Just one word wrong.

0:32:290:32:30

Yes, Bletchley Park, it currently houses the National Codes Centre

0:32:300:32:34

and the National Museum of Computing. Quite the place for dates.

0:32:340:32:37

I'd enjoy it.

0:32:370:32:39

Let's go through the other answers.

0:32:410:32:44

The port is Dunkirk.

0:32:440:32:45

Would have scored you 40 points.

0:32:470:32:49

The name of the German air force was a big scorer - 55 for Luftwaffe.

0:32:490:32:53

The demilitarised zone that Hitler's troops entered...

0:32:530:32:56

-Hitler was his villain name, wasn't it?

-Oh, yes.

-Very much so.

0:32:560:33:00

I think, Rachel, you said, the Rhineland. Very good answer.

0:33:000:33:03

Would have scored three points. The other answer is a pointless answer.

0:33:030:33:07

The French city in which the full Nazi surrender was signed. Any clues?

0:33:070:33:11

-I thought it was Versailles.

-Was it Versailles?

-It's Reims.

0:33:110:33:14

-Versailles was the First World War.

-Of course!

0:33:140:33:16

Very well done if you said that at home. A pointless answer.

0:33:160:33:19

So the losing pair at the end of the head-to-head, I'm afraid, Sonia and Mark.

0:33:190:33:23

-Never mind.

-You've done so well, though. Brilliant.

0:33:230:33:27

-Exemplary play all the way through the show.

-We've really enjoyed it.

0:33:270:33:30

-We really have.

-What was your favourite round?

0:33:300:33:33

-The first one because it was where we got married.

-Lovely.

0:33:330:33:38

Nevada, not North Dakota.

0:33:380:33:41

Listen, Sonia and Mark, it's been lovely having you on the show.

0:33:410:33:44

-Thank you so much for playing. Brilliant.

-Thank you.

0:33:440:33:47

APPLAUSE

0:33:470:33:50

But for Rachel and Mark, it's now time for our pointless final.

0:33:510:33:54

Well, congratulations, Rachel and Mark.

0:33:580:34:00

You have seen off all the competition

0:34:000:34:02

and you have won our coveted Pointless trophy.

0:34:020:34:05

-Wow.

-You now have a chance to win our Pointless jackpot.

0:34:100:34:13

At the end of today's show, the jackpot stands at £2,500.

0:34:130:34:17

Very, very strong performance.

0:34:200:34:24

Very strong performance from you there, Rachel.

0:34:240:34:26

I knew you were going to say that! She needs the rock beside her.

0:34:260:34:31

-That was a maths question, really, in disguise, Bletchley Park?

-Bletchley Park, kind of, yeah.

0:34:310:34:36

The question is, how are you going to pick the category that Rachel's going to answer?

0:34:360:34:40

We all know Rachel will pick the category Rachel's going to answer

0:34:400:34:44

-and I'll just go along with whatever she says.

-OK.

0:34:440:34:46

Well, very best of luck. You've done fantastically well to get thus far.

0:34:460:34:49

But the rules are very simple. To win the money for your nominated charities,

0:34:490:34:53

all you have to do is find a pointless answer. We haven't had any on the show today.

0:34:530:34:57

You only have to find one now and you'll go away with that money for your charities.

0:34:570:35:00

First, you've got to choose a category and you have

0:35:000:35:02

a choice of five options. Good luck. They are...

0:35:020:35:05

-Katie Price.

-Oh, no!

-Formula One...

-Just all of them, not just her.

0:35:070:35:10

Interesting. We both know a lot...

0:35:140:35:16

You once compared me to Katie Price

0:35:160:35:18

-and you've worked with her, haven't you?

-I have.

0:35:180:35:21

-But I haven't read her...

-Neither have I.

-..books yet.

0:35:210:35:24

Which I'm getting round to, but I haven't quite done it yet.

0:35:240:35:27

-Formula One...

-Formula One, I know nothing. Artists... Uh-oh.

0:35:270:35:31

Rock Stars...

0:35:310:35:33

-I think Transport seems to be the one that's the most obscure.

-Why not?

0:35:330:35:36

-And you are quite random so...

-Thank you. Let's go for it.

0:35:360:35:40

-We're going Transport.

-You're going Transport?

-Yeah.

0:35:400:35:42

Very well done indeed. Let's find out what the question is.

0:35:420:35:46

We gave 100 people 100 seconds to name...

0:35:460:35:48

as many national rail stations on the London tube map

0:35:480:35:52

as they could. Richard.

0:35:520:35:55

Yes, we're looking for any station on the TFL London tube map

0:35:550:35:58

which also provides a national rail service.

0:35:580:36:00

Those are the ones on the tube map with the little rail symbol.

0:36:000:36:03

It can be on any tube line, London overground or DLR,

0:36:030:36:06

so long as it's on the tube map at the beginning of 2012.

0:36:060:36:10

Thank you very much. OK. There we are.

0:36:100:36:12

You have up to one minute to come up with three answers and all you need

0:36:120:36:15

to win that £2,500 is for just one of those answers to be pointless.

0:36:150:36:20

-Are you ready?

-No.

-Not yet.

-Let's put 60 seconds on the clock.

0:36:200:36:24

There they are. Your time starts now.

0:36:240:36:26

-I know the Essex ones, like Barking...

-Barking's got national rail?

-Barking, West Ham...

0:36:260:36:30

-I would go St Pancras, King's Cross, Paddington. That's obviously no use to us.

-Barking, West Ham...

0:36:300:36:34

-West Ham's national rail?

-Liverpool Street. That's an obvious one.

0:36:340:36:38

-Yeah, West Ham's one.

-I love that. OK.

0:36:380:36:40

Clapham Junction's one, of course. I'm just trying to pretend I know stuff.

0:36:400:36:44

Woodford Green, is that one?

0:36:440:36:46

-That's your neck of the woods, isn't it?

-Yeah, I only know the Essex ones.

0:36:460:36:49

-Croydon. East Croydon. East Croydon is a national rail line.

-Are you sure?

0:36:490:36:53

Yes. But I like your Barking. I like your West Ham.

0:36:530:36:56

Trouble is, the cross-section of society...

0:36:570:37:00

-We're in trouble here, aren't we?

-Yes.

-Um...

0:37:000:37:04

I'm just going to say um and ah for a bit longer.

0:37:040:37:07

How many more seconds have I got to um and ah? 19 seconds.

0:37:070:37:09

Why are you backing away from me? You think, "You useless..."

0:37:090:37:13

-No, I'm trying to think. Time. Focus.

-OK. OK, focus.

0:37:130:37:16

-Ten seconds.

-Jubilee line.

0:37:160:37:18

Go down the Jubilee line, anything on there?

0:37:180:37:20

Swiss Cottage, is that a national rail line? No, I don't think it is.

0:37:200:37:24

-High Barnet. No. I think what we've got to go for...

-OK.

0:37:240:37:29

Your time is up. We're looking for national rail stations on the London tube map.

0:37:290:37:33

-I now need your three answers.

-Is Woodford Green one?

0:37:330:37:37

Let's do that anyway. So Woodford Green...

0:37:370:37:39

-Let's go all those Essex ones.

-Or Harold Hill?

-OK. I need your three answers now.

0:37:390:37:43

-Harold Hill?

-Harold Hill.

-Three answers.

0:37:430:37:45

-It's obscure. It might not be right. Let's go Harold Hill.

-OK. Harold Hill.

0:37:450:37:49

So I think you've got to go for your Holford doo-da,

0:37:490:37:51

whatever that was, and then go for the ones...

0:37:510:37:54

-You've had your 60 seconds.

-Barking and Woodford Green.

0:37:540:37:58

-Woodford Green, Barking and Howard Hill.

-Harold Hill.

0:37:580:38:02

-Harold Hill.

-As in King Harold.

-There are the three answers.

0:38:020:38:05

-Which of those three do you think is your best shot at a pointless answer?

-If Harold Hill...

0:38:050:38:09

-I've never heard of Harold Hill.

-Nor have I.

-If it's a mainline station, national rail,

0:38:090:38:13

-we're delighted with Harold Hill.

-Shall we put that last?

-Sure.

-OK.

0:38:130:38:17

-That goes last. Which shall we put first?

-Barking. Everyone's heard of Barking.

-OK.

0:38:170:38:20

Let's put those up on the board in that order. And here they are.

0:38:200:38:24

Barking, Woodford Green, Harold Hill. There we are.

0:38:280:38:31

We were looking for national rail stations on the London tube map.

0:38:310:38:35

Barking you said was your least confident shot at a pointless answer.

0:38:350:38:38

You only have to find one pointless answer, remember,

0:38:380:38:41

to win that £2,500 jackpot.

0:38:410:38:43

So let's see how many people said Barking.

0:38:430:38:48

Is it right?

0:38:480:38:49

It is right.

0:38:510:38:52

OK. Down it goes. If this goes all the way down to zero,

0:38:520:38:55

you leave here with £2,500 for your charities.

0:38:550:38:58

It's still going down.

0:38:580:38:59

Into the teens.

0:38:590:39:00

Into single figures. Down it goes.

0:39:000:39:02

Three, two, one. Oh!

0:39:020:39:03

GROANING

0:39:030:39:05

One point away.

0:39:050:39:06

SHE GROANS

0:39:110:39:13

One person got Barking. Barking's quite well known.

0:39:130:39:16

It's at the end of the line, the end of the tube line.

0:39:160:39:18

-It's written on the front of tubes.

-So West Ham might have...

-Upminster!

0:39:180:39:21

Upminster's now a good shout.

0:39:210:39:23

It's unfortunate. There we are. Not a pointless answer.

0:39:230:39:26

-But I think quite... Are we reassured by that?

-No.

-No.

0:39:260:39:29

-Aren't we?

-I'm not sure the others are even...right.

0:39:310:39:34

The other two are wild guesses I think. Wild-ish from...Raquel.

0:39:340:39:39

-You only have two more chances to win today's jackpot.

-Oh, dear.

-Rachel, what's your charity?

0:39:390:39:43

It's the Angus Lawson Memorial Trust that helps children's charities

0:39:430:39:46

-across the globe and at home.

-Very good indeed.

0:39:460:39:49

APPLAUSE

0:39:490:39:51

-And, Mark, what's your charity?

-Mine is the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust which is

0:39:540:39:58

raising awareness about depression and fighting its symptoms

0:39:580:40:02

-and trying to basically help people who are suffering.

-Very good.

0:40:020:40:05

APPLAUSE

0:40:050:40:07

Well, let's hope, for the sake of those two charities,

0:40:110:40:14

that one of your two remaining answers will be pointless. OK.

0:40:140:40:17

We're looking for national rail stations on the London tube map.

0:40:170:40:20

Let's hope nobody said your next answer which is Woodford Green. It has to be correct and pointless.

0:40:200:40:25

If it's both of those things, you leave here with £2,500.

0:40:250:40:28

Is it right? How many people said Woodford Green?

0:40:280:40:31

No. We weren't sure. Oh, dear.

0:40:330:40:37

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

0:40:370:40:40

-Is it even a tube stop?

-I've never heard of Harold Hill.

0:40:400:40:44

-Not as a person, not as a tube map.

-I'm living in the past.

-Harold Hill.

0:40:440:40:49

We are looking for national rail stations on the London tube map.

0:40:490:40:52

Your third and final answer was Harold Hill.

0:40:520:40:55

This was your most confident shot at a pointless answer.

0:40:550:40:58

This is your third shot at that jackpot of £2,500. It has to be right.

0:40:580:41:02

It has to be pointless. Is it right? Harold Hill.

0:41:020:41:04

Oh, no!

0:41:070:41:09

-That was obvious. No-one had heard of it!

-You did brilliantly.

0:41:090:41:12

Bad luck. Well, there we are. Unfortunately, you didn't manage

0:41:140:41:18

to find that all-important pointless answer,

0:41:180:41:20

so I'm afraid you don't win today's jackpot of £2,500.

0:41:200:41:23

However, as it's a celebrity special, we are going to donate

0:41:230:41:26

£500 to each celebrity pair for their respective charities.

0:41:260:41:30

-Thank you.

-Thank you very much.

0:41:300:41:32

That's great. Thank you.

0:41:330:41:35

-This is the really hard bit. Richard.

-It's not going to be Upminster and West Ham?

0:41:350:41:39

Please don't say that.

0:41:390:41:40

You've been so good. You went for Barking. Should have gone for West Ham.

0:41:400:41:44

-It was a pointless answer.

-Oh, no!

-Would have won the money.

-I thought that was obvious.

0:41:440:41:47

-Upminster also a pointless answer.

-Oh, no!

0:41:470:41:50

Let's take a look at some of the other pointless answers.

0:41:500:41:52

Well done if you got any of these at home.

0:41:520:41:54

Brixton would have won you the money.

0:41:540:41:56

The nearest overground rail station to here - Shepherd's Bush.

0:42:020:42:04

That would have won you the money. Stratford International.

0:42:040:42:08

There's Upminster. Watford Junction as well. A few others.

0:42:080:42:11

Amersham would have won you the money. New Cross Gate. Old Street, South Ruislip,

0:42:110:42:15

West Hampstead, West Ruislip. All of those pointless.

0:42:150:42:17

Well done if you got any of those. Unlucky. You've been brilliant.

0:42:170:42:20

-That's a really, really tough way to lose.

-How disappointing.

0:42:200:42:23

Unfortunately, we do have to say goodbye to you. It's been brilliant having you on the show.

0:42:230:42:26

Thank you both so much for playing. Excellent contestants.

0:42:260:42:30

APPLAUSE

0:42:300:42:32

All that remains is for me to say thank you to all our celebrity pairs,

0:42:320:42:36
