CHEERING

0:00:200:00:22

Thank you very much indeed. Hello, I'm Alexander Armstrong.

0:00:240:00:27

A very warm welcome to a special celebrity edition of Pointless,

0:00:270:00:31

the quiz show that puts obscure knowledge to the test.

0:00:310:00:33

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

0:00:330:00:37

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

0:00:370:00:40

our celebrities need to come up with the answers that the fewest

0:00:400:00:43

of those 100 people could think of.

0:00:430:00:44

Let's meet our Pointless celebrities!

0:00:440:00:47

APPLAUSE

0:00:470:00:49

First up, we welcome Nicholas Parsons and Rick Wakeman!

0:00:510:00:55

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:00:550:00:57

Quite a breadth of things we know you from.

0:01:000:01:02

Obviously, Just A Minute, Nicholas. Grumpy Old Men,

0:01:020:01:06

you've got a long career of TV and film, haven't you?

0:01:060:01:08

-And theatre, yes.

-And theatre, of course.

0:01:080:01:11

-And the Rocky Horror Show.

-Quite recently, Rocky Horror.

-Yes.

0:01:110:01:14

Fishnet tights, the high-heeled shoes...

0:01:140:01:17

-LAUGHTER

-Did you keep them?

0:01:170:01:19

Ooh, look at them.

0:01:190:01:20

And Rick, huge musical career. Massive hero of mine.

0:01:200:01:25

Rick was the keyboard player, the piano player on Hunky Dory.

0:01:250:01:29

-Yeah, I did Hunky Dory.

-You did Hunky Dory.

0:01:290:01:31

That riff at the end... # Diddler, diddler, diddle... #

0:01:310:01:34

at the end of Fill Your Heart.

0:01:340:01:36

-The diddly-diddly-diddly.

-Yes! He did all those on Hunky Dory

0:01:360:01:39

and on so many other things.

0:01:390:01:41

-It was great fun.

-You've got a lot tidied up between you, I'd say.

0:01:410:01:45

-But you have other interests. Nicholas, cricket...

-Cricket, of course, is my great passion, yes.

0:01:450:01:49

And, er, what other things? Oh, gardening, I'm a keen gardener.

0:01:490:01:53

-I didn't know that.

-Oh yes, and my garden's been on television three or four times.

0:01:530:01:58

-Goodness.

-It was the Nine O'Clock News, wasn't it?

0:01:580:02:00

Rick, how about you? What other areas are there?

0:02:000:02:04

I like gardening as well, that's what happens ageing rockers,

0:02:040:02:07

you go in the garden a lot.

0:02:070:02:08

-And football, I love my football.

-Very good. Listen, best of luck,

0:02:080:02:12

-lovely to have you on the show.

-Thank you.

0:02:120:02:14

Next, please welcome David Spinx and Hannah Waterman!

0:02:140:02:16

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:02:160:02:18

Of course, we know you from playing Keith Miller and Laura Beale,

0:02:210:02:24

in EastEnders. Now, what are you hoping is going to come up today?

0:02:240:02:28

Oh, something will come up and I think I'll like it,

0:02:280:02:33

then when the questions come up, I realise I don't know anything about it.

0:02:330:02:36

-Hannah, do you want to nominate any dread topics?

-Sport, eurgh!

0:02:360:02:41

-All sport?

-Yeah.

0:02:410:02:43

Yeah. And probably geography, history, maths, biology, physics,

0:02:430:02:49

-chemistry... And so it goes on!

-You two are going to be brilliant!

0:02:490:02:54

-I can tell!

-Oh, yeah.

0:02:540:02:56

-Fantastic.

-That was just a big morale boost I got there, wasn't it?

0:02:560:03:00

Lovely having you on the show, thanks so much for playing.

0:03:000:03:02

Very best of luck!

0:03:020:03:04

Next, please welcome Charlotte Jackson and Dan Walker!

0:03:040:03:07

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:03:070:03:09

We know you from Sky Sports and Football Focus,

0:03:130:03:16

so you've got sports completely sewn up there, haven't you?

0:03:160:03:20

-You'd hope so.

-You really would.

-It's like David said earlier,

0:03:200:03:24

you might think you know the subject, the category,

0:03:240:03:26

and then, a question comes up and you're like, "Oh no..."

0:03:260:03:29

You're expected to know it and then...

0:03:290:03:31

If sport does actually come up as a category,

0:03:310:03:33

your hearts are going to beat a little bit faster, aren't they?

0:03:330:03:36

I've got this vision of Richard, the quizmaster, going,

0:03:360:03:38

"Oh dear, my six-year-old nephew would have got that..."

0:03:380:03:41

-The shame will never leave us!

-We'll just have to walk off.

0:03:410:03:44

Let me write that down, what was that? "Oh dear, my six-year-old nephew..." OK.

0:03:440:03:48

Well, Charlotte and Dan, it's great to have you here.

0:03:480:03:52

Very best of luck.

0:03:520:03:53

Finally, we've got Trev Neal and Simon Hickson.

0:03:530:03:56

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:03:560:03:58

Well, we know you from Live And Kicking and Going Live!

0:04:020:04:05

I should just say, we know you, Trevor and Simon,

0:04:050:04:07

-from Trevor and Simon!

-Fair enough.

-If you can remember that far back!

0:04:070:04:11

Absolutely. Simon, anything you're particularly hoping might come up?

0:04:110:04:14

Films. I like films, so films in general.

0:04:140:04:18

Any particular era or vintage?

0:04:180:04:20

Er, '70s, '80s, that kind of time.

0:04:200:04:24

-Anything you're dreading?

-Pigeons, I think.

0:04:240:04:27

Pigeons and carpet, carpet patterns.

0:04:270:04:29

I've been testing Trev on cheeses, haven't I?

0:04:290:04:32

Yeah, yeah. I'm quite good on cheeses.

0:04:320:04:35

I don't want, and you like this, I hate you for liking it,

0:04:350:04:38

you always have some periodic table thing on,

0:04:380:04:40

and I don't even know what the periodic table is.

0:04:400:04:42

-It's like an occasional table!

-Pretty bloomin' frequent on this show.

0:04:420:04:48

Sorry, that was a terrible joke.

0:04:490:04:51

Possibly not even recognisable as a joke!

0:04:510:04:55

Anyway...

0:04:560:04:58

Listen, Trev, Simon, welcome to Pointless,

0:04:580:05:01

-it's lovely to have you here.

-Thank you.

0:05:010:05:04

There's only one person left to introduce.

0:05:040:05:06

He asks more searching questions than a spurned lover.

0:05:060:05:08

-He's my Pointless friend, he's Richard.

-Hiya.

0:05:080:05:12

Hello.

0:05:120:05:13

It should be a cracking show today, shouldn't it?

0:05:170:05:20

Trevor and Simon look like winners, don't they?

0:05:200:05:22

-I think they do.

-Stop it!

0:05:220:05:25

-DAN:

-Why do they look like winners?

0:05:250:05:26

They've got that slightly buffoonish air. That's just an air, right?

0:05:260:05:30

-Oh yes, it's all an act.

-Of course.

0:05:300:05:32

But you can see they know exactly what they're doing.

0:05:320:05:34

In fact, I thought they were going to be winners but looking at Round One,

0:05:340:05:38

I think Round One is going to suit Nicholas and Rick

0:05:380:05:41

-down to the ground.

-Oh, that's reassuring!

0:05:410:05:43

OK, well, I'm looking forward to Round One.

0:05:430:05:45

And Round Two is going to be "things my six-year-old nephew knows".

0:05:450:05:49

You've done that before.

0:05:490:05:51

-He knows that one.

-Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:05:510:05:54

All our questions on Pointless have been put to 100 people before the show

0:05:540:05:57

but we are looking for the obscure answers they didn't get.

0:05:570:06:00

To stay in the game and be in with a chance of winning our jackpot,

0:06:000:06:03

our celebrities must score as few points as possible.

0:06:030:06:05

Everyone's trying to find a pointless answer,

0:06:050:06:08

that's an answer that none of our 100 people gave.

0:06:080:06:10

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

0:06:100:06:13

As today's show is a special celebrity edition,

0:06:130:06:16

each of our celebrities is playing for a nominated charity.

0:06:160:06:19

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

0:06:190:06:23

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

0:06:280:06:30

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

0:06:350:06:38

and you cannot confer with your partner.

0:06:380:06:40

Whichever pair has the highest score at the end of the round will be eliminated.

0:06:400:06:43

If you give me an incorrect answer, you'll score the maximum of 100 points.

0:06:430:06:47

Do try and avoid those if you can.

0:06:470:06:48

OK, our first category today is...

0:06:480:06:51

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

0:06:540:06:59

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

0:07:000:07:03

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

0:07:060:07:08

We gave 100 people 100 seconds to name as many

0:07:080:07:12

berries as they could. Berries, Richard.

0:07:120:07:16

We're looking for the name of any fruit or plant

0:07:160:07:18

that ends in the word "berry" and has its own entry

0:07:180:07:20

in the Oxford Dictionary Of English.

0:07:200:07:22

Doesn't have to be an edible fruit

0:07:220:07:24

but any fruit that ends in the word "berry".

0:07:240:07:27

Very best of luck.

0:07:270:07:28

Nicholas and Rick, you all drew lots before the show

0:07:280:07:31

and today, you get to go first.

0:07:310:07:34

Rick, we want a fruit that's a berry, ending in "berry".

0:07:340:07:38

Well, I ruled out Chuck!

0:07:380:07:41

I'm not sure whether this is two words or one word

0:07:410:07:44

-but I'll have a go. Loganberry.

-Loganberry. Very good indeed.

0:07:440:07:48

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

0:07:480:07:52

Cracking answer, there it is.

0:07:540:07:56

60.

0:07:560:07:59

That's high. That's high.

0:07:590:08:02

Something tells me it's going to be a high-scoring round, this one.

0:08:020:08:05

-60 for loganberry.

-Big score for loganberry, named after John H Logan,

0:08:050:08:08

the American horticulturalist, but I don't need to tell you that.

0:08:080:08:12

Thank you very much, Richard.

0:08:130:08:15

-Now then, Hannah.

-Elderberry.

-Elderberry.

-That's a good one.

0:08:150:08:20

Elderberry, yes, there we are.

0:08:200:08:23

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

0:08:230:08:27

Ooh!

0:08:320:08:34

APPLAUSE

0:08:350:08:37

-It's exciting.

-16!

0:08:370:08:40

Whoah. 16, leaving loganberry in its wake...man.

0:08:420:08:47

LAUGHTER

0:08:470:08:49

Very good start, Hannah, very well played.

0:08:510:08:54

Elderberry, named after John H Logan's elder brother!

0:08:540:08:56

Charlotte, the most obscure berry you can think of.

0:08:590:09:03

Well, I was going to say loganberry, that would have been my first choice.

0:09:030:09:07

That would have done you no good at all, 60 points.

0:09:070:09:09

I'm pleased I didn't do that. But the one I'm going to go for now

0:09:090:09:13

is something no-one wants to be, a gooseberry.

0:09:130:09:16

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

0:09:160:09:20

Absolutely right.

0:09:230:09:24

-Oh no!

-61.

-Sorry!

0:09:250:09:28

APPLAUSE DROWNS SPEECH

0:09:280:09:30

-61 for gooseberry.

-Yeah, gooseberry, only 61.

0:09:320:09:35

60 for loganberry and 61 for gooseberry.

0:09:350:09:37

OK, Simon, the most obscure berry you can think of.

0:09:370:09:42

Well, this is horrible. I'm going to have a go at one...

0:09:420:09:47

I could let you down, Trev, this could be wrong,

0:09:470:09:50

this could be just someone's name.

0:09:500:09:51

I'm going to say bilberry.

0:09:510:09:54

-NICHOLAS:

-That's a good one.

0:09:540:09:55

Bilberry, let's see if that's right and if it is,

0:09:550:09:58

let's see how many people said bilberry.

0:09:580:10:00

-8.

-I don't even know what one is!

0:10:080:10:11

That scores you 8, very well done indeed.

0:10:150:10:17

We're halfway through the round, let's take a look at the scores as they stand.

0:10:170:10:21

Well, Trev and Simon looking

0:10:210:10:22

very strong indeed on 8. Then we travel up to 16,

0:10:220:10:26

where we find Hannah and David, then up to 60,

0:10:260:10:29

where Rick and Nicholas are.

0:10:290:10:31

Slightly unjustly, I can't help thinking. Loganberry, cracking answer.

0:10:310:10:35

60? I don't think so.

0:10:350:10:37

Then up to 61, where we find Charlotte and Dan.

0:10:370:10:40

So I would say, Dan and Nicholas, the pair of you should be

0:10:400:10:43

jockeying it out to see who'll be leaving us

0:10:430:10:45

at the end of this round. Very best of luck to you.

0:10:450:10:47

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

0:10:470:10:51

OK, we are looking for berries, we are looking for berries, Trev.

0:10:540:10:59

-Can you do better?

-He's put me in a bit of a dilemma here,

0:10:590:11:03

cos I either play safe or I go out on a limb as well.

0:11:030:11:07

-Limb.

-Limb, limb, limb.

-I don't know whether

0:11:070:11:11

it's technically right, but...

0:11:110:11:13

Ah...

0:11:140:11:16

Juniper berry.

0:11:160:11:17

Juniper berry. A juniper berry.

0:11:170:11:19

I'm saying it like that in the hope that it's one word.

0:11:190:11:23

This red line will show you how far down

0:11:230:11:26

you need to come. Our high scorers are Dan and Charlotte,

0:11:260:11:28

on 61. You're on 8, which means a score of 52 or less from you

0:11:280:11:32

will see you into the next round. Juniper berry.

0:11:320:11:36

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

0:11:360:11:40

-Neh!

-Never mind.

0:11:420:11:46

That's a real shame, a real shame. That scores you 100 points,

0:11:460:11:49

takes your total up to 108. But anything could happen.

0:11:490:11:52

108 is your total.

0:11:520:11:54

Yeah, that's really lulling everyone into a false sense of security.

0:11:540:11:57

It's distracted you, you see!

0:11:570:12:00

-It is a berry but it's two words.

-Yeah, sorry, I...

0:12:000:12:02

However fast you say it, still two words.

0:12:020:12:05

-A little mistake.

-So, Dan,

0:12:050:12:07

the high scorers are now Trev and Simon on 108, you're on 61.

0:12:070:12:11

46 or less will see you into the next round.

0:12:110:12:14

Er...

0:12:160:12:17

-I'm all out of berries!

-No, no, no, you're not.

0:12:170:12:19

There's a garden full of them.

0:12:190:12:20

I'm going to have to go for the obvious cos I don't know any other berries.

0:12:200:12:24

-Don't you?

-OK.

-Sorry, Charlotte.

0:12:240:12:25

Are you aware of loads of other berries?

0:12:250:12:27

A couple more.

0:12:270:12:29

My berry knowledge is not quite where it should be, obviously.

0:12:290:12:32

So I'm going to have to say raspberries.

0:12:320:12:36

-OK, you're going to say raspberry.

-Yes.

0:12:360:12:38

The high scorers are on 108, Trev and Simon.

0:12:380:12:40

I should have gone for it and let you go first.

0:12:400:12:42

You are on 61. If you can get below that red line,

0:12:420:12:45

you are through to the next round. This might be a lifeline

0:12:450:12:48

for Trev and Simon.

0:12:480:12:50

Let's see. Raspberry. Is it right?

0:12:500:12:54

How many people said it? Raspberry.

0:12:540:12:56

It's right...

0:12:590:13:00

87, that has scored you.

0:13:000:13:04

-Sorry.

-That's all right, I should have let you go first.

0:13:040:13:07

87. That takes your total up to 148.

0:13:070:13:09

Phew, Trev and Simon! That aura's come back, I can feel it.

0:13:090:13:13

-148 is your total now, Dan.

-Yeah, 87 people knew that,

0:13:150:13:17

one of whom was my six-year-old nephew as well.

0:13:170:13:21

OK, now, David, you are on 16.

0:13:230:13:26

Lovely low score which means

0:13:260:13:28

even if you score 100 points, you will not overtake Dan and Charlotte,

0:13:280:13:31

our current high scorers,

0:13:310:13:33

which means you're already into the next round. But for fun,

0:13:330:13:37

let's hear your berry. Maybe it'll be a pointless berry.

0:13:370:13:40

I've got two, but I'm not sure whether they are...

0:13:400:13:44

I'm going to go for huckleberry.

0:13:440:13:47

OK... I would have smirked at that but Rick just nodded,

0:13:480:13:54

so I'm not smirking at anything to which the Wakeman nods!

0:13:540:13:57

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

0:13:580:14:02

It's right! It's right, David.

0:14:050:14:08

Very, very well done, you. Down it goes.

0:14:080:14:11

Still going down, still going down...

0:14:110:14:12

It's pointless!

0:14:120:14:14

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:14:140:14:15

-Very well done indeed, David.

-Well done!

0:14:150:14:18

A pointless answer that adds £250 to today's jackpot.

0:14:200:14:24

Takes the total up to...

0:14:240:14:27

It scores you nothing.

0:14:270:14:29

It leaves your already pretty low score at a very low 16.

0:14:290:14:33

Very well done indeed, David.

0:14:330:14:34

-Huckleberry.

-What is it?

-Brilliant answer, very well played.

0:14:340:14:37

It's a North American fruit, a small blue-black fruit.

0:14:370:14:40

Terrific answer.

0:14:400:14:42

-Rick knew, he knew it was right immediately.

-Wow.

0:14:420:14:46

Brilliant, pointless answer on your very first answer,

0:14:460:14:49

-very well played.

-Yes!

-Brilliant!

-Very well done indeed.

0:14:490:14:52

And now, Nicholas, we come to you.

0:14:520:14:54

The unusual ones have been given but I'll stick my neck out

0:14:540:14:59

-and say blueberry.

-Blueberry, says Nicholas. Let's see if that's right

0:14:590:15:02

and if it is, how many people said blueberry.

0:15:020:15:05

Absolutely right and you're through to the next round.

0:15:080:15:10

73.

0:15:100:15:11

-It's good enough.

-Well done.

0:15:110:15:15

That takes your total up to 133.

0:15:150:15:18

Well played, Nicholas, safely through.

0:15:180:15:21

It was actually the right answer to give.

0:15:210:15:23

Sorry, Dan, there were a few more you might have got.

0:15:230:15:25

-Cranberry would have seen you through.

-Cranberry!

0:15:250:15:27

Mulberry would have seen you through. Boysenberry was a low scorer.

0:15:270:15:30

There's a whole bunch of pointless answers though.

0:15:300:15:33

Let's take a look at some of them.

0:15:330:15:34

The bunchberry, nobody said bunchberry.

0:15:360:15:39

You said "Chuck Berry", Rick. If you said chokeberry, you would have got a pointless answer.

0:15:390:15:43

The cowberry, which is black and white, makes a distinctive noise.

0:15:430:15:47

The dogberry, about half the size of a cowberry.

0:15:470:15:50

-There's huckleberry, terrific answer. The serviceberry.

-Yes.

0:15:500:15:54

-You weren't thinking of that one, Dan, the serviceberry?

-It was my next one!

0:15:540:15:57

It's one of those things. The fruit of the service tree, that.

0:15:570:16:00

-Er, the soapberry.

-Ah...

0:16:000:16:04

Didn't get that, Hannah and David? The squashberry and the winterberry,

0:16:040:16:07

all of those pointless. Shall we take a look at the high scorers?

0:16:070:16:10

These are the ones that most of our 100 people said.

0:16:100:16:13

Dan, one of these will be familiar to you. In third place

0:16:130:16:17

was the blackberry, 84, when it's working.

0:16:170:16:21

Raspberry, 87, and the top of all, strawberry on 92.

0:16:210:16:26

Well, thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:16:260:16:29

At the end of the first round, the losing pair with the highest score, it's Dan and Charlotte.

0:16:290:16:33

I want to know, is a soapberry something you use in the bath?

0:16:330:16:36

Let me look, Nicholas... No, it's not.

0:16:360:16:39

No, no.

0:16:390:16:41

-Let me put that another way. You could.

-Oh yes.

0:16:410:16:44

But it's not what it's designed for. Like so many things in life.

0:16:440:16:48

LAUGHTER

0:16:480:16:50

Dan and Charlotte, I'm afraid we have to say goodbye to you.

0:16:520:16:55

You've been denied some great quizzery from myself and Charlotte.

0:16:550:16:58

-It's a sad moment for everyone involved!

-It genuinely is!

0:16:580:17:02

Thanks so much, it's been lovely having you on the show.

0:17:020:17:05

Dan and Charlotte, excellent contestants.

0:17:050:17:07

Do we walk off?

0:17:070:17:08

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

0:17:080:17:13

Obviously, there's only going to be room for two celebrity pairs

0:17:180:17:21

in our celebrity head to celebrity head round,

0:17:210:17:24

so one of the teams in front of us now will be leaving us

0:17:240:17:26

at the end of this round.

0:17:260:17:28

Our category for Round Two is...

0:17:280:17:30

Fictional Characters. Can you all decide in your pairs

0:17:320:17:36

who's going to go first, who's going to go second.

0:17:360:17:39

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

0:17:390:17:41

OK, our question concerns...

0:17:450:17:48

-Richard.

-Yes, on each pass, we're going to show you six descriptions of fictional captains.

0:17:510:17:57

All you have to do is tell us who one of those captains is.

0:17:570:18:00

The more obscure answer you give, the fewer points you're going to score.

0:18:000:18:03

Give us an incorrect answer though, you'll score 100 points.

0:18:030:18:06

There'll be 12 fictional captains in all to have a go at at home.

0:18:060:18:09

-Best of luck.

-OK, so we are looking for the surnames

0:18:090:18:12

of these fictional captains and we have got...

0:18:120:18:14

I'll read those all one last time.

0:18:320:18:34

There we are. Six fictional captains.

0:18:480:18:52

And Nicholas, you are to go first. As always on Pointless,

0:18:520:18:55

you're going to try and find the one the fewest of our 100 people knew.

0:18:550:18:59

Well, I'm a bit lost on most of them.

0:18:590:19:02

But Long John Silver's parrot was Captain Flint.

0:19:020:19:05

Captain Flint, says Nicholas.

0:19:050:19:07

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

0:19:070:19:11

It's right!

0:19:130:19:14

6!

0:19:190:19:21

A great answer, Nicholas.

0:19:210:19:24

6 for Captain Flint.

0:19:260:19:28

That's a terrific answer, very well played.

0:19:280:19:30

From Treasure Island, of course. Reputed to be over 200 years old.

0:19:300:19:34

-Captain Flint?

-The parrot, not Treasure Island.

0:19:340:19:38

Our eldest son calls...called him Long Gone Silver.

0:19:390:19:43

-Aw, he's having trouble reading, yeah?

-Yeah.

0:19:430:19:46

-He's 17, isn't he?

-17 now, yes.

0:19:460:19:49

Er, OK, there we are. OK, Hannah.

0:19:510:19:53

I think I know the answer to more than I thought initially

0:19:530:19:58

when I went into a blind panic and could only think

0:19:580:20:01

of a very obvious answer that probably isn't there at all.

0:20:010:20:04

So I'm going to say...

0:20:040:20:06

Owner of a mandolin called Antonia is Captain Corelli.

0:20:070:20:11

Captain Corelli, says Hannah. Let's see if that's right and if it is,

0:20:110:20:14

let's see how many people knew that answer. Captain Corelli.

0:20:140:20:18

Absolutely right.

0:20:200:20:21

Ooh...

0:20:240:20:25

-That's OK.

-21 for Captain Corelli.

0:20:260:20:29

APPLAUSE

0:20:290:20:31

Well played, Hannah. Captain Antonio Corelli

0:20:330:20:35

from the novel by Louis De Bernieres, played by Nicolas Cage in the film.

0:20:350:20:39

Oh yes! OK, now then, Trev, you're the last person to have this board.

0:20:390:20:42

If you like, you can take us through the board before submitting your answer.

0:20:420:20:46

I think the indestructible agent who fought the Mysterons

0:20:460:20:48

is Captain Scarlet.

0:20:480:20:50

Then you've got Captain Mainwaring is on the Home Guard.

0:20:500:20:54

Then Captain Jack from Torchwood.

0:20:540:20:56

I'm not sure but I think possibly the bottom one,

0:20:560:21:00

cartoon enemy is Captain Pugwash, maybe.

0:21:000:21:03

I think I'm going to go with Captain Scarlet.

0:21:030:21:07

OK, very good. Captain Scarlet, you think is going to be the more obscure of those four.

0:21:070:21:11

Let's see, Captain Scarlet, is it right?

0:21:110:21:13

How many people knew that answer?

0:21:130:21:15

Absolutely right.

0:21:170:21:18

30.

0:21:220:21:24

APPLAUSE

0:21:240:21:26

30 for Captain Scarlet.

0:21:260:21:29

The highest score of the round, which seems unfair after you filled in the board so neatly there,

0:21:290:21:33

and cleverly, if I may say!

0:21:330:21:35

-Richard.

-Yes, good round from everyone there.

0:21:350:21:37

He was indestructible, Captain Scarlet, as was his nemesis, Captain Black.

0:21:370:21:41

Walmington-on-Sea's Home Guard

0:21:410:21:43

was led by Captain Mainwaring, you're right, but that would have scored 39.

0:21:430:21:46

Torchwood's enigmatic central character,

0:21:460:21:49

if you'd said Captain Jack, I wouldn't have given you the points.

0:21:490:21:51

I was looking for the surname. It's Captain Harkness.

0:21:510:21:54

Would have scored 10 points, that would have been good.

0:21:540:21:56

You should have gone for the cartoon enemy of Cut-throat Jake,

0:21:560:21:59

you were right, Captain Pugwash,

0:21:590:22:01

would have scored you 9 points.

0:22:010:22:03

The best answer on the board, Captain Flint,

0:22:030:22:05

-which Nicholas gave.

-Thank you. We're halfway through the round, let's take a look at the scores.

0:22:050:22:10

Nicholas and Rick,

0:22:100:22:12

deservedly low score there, the lowest scorers of the pass,

0:22:120:22:15

that lovely answer, Captain Flint.

0:22:150:22:17

Then all the way up to 21, Hannah and David. Then up to 30,

0:22:170:22:20

where Trev and Simon are. We're going to come back down the line,

0:22:200:22:23

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

0:22:230:22:26

OK, we're going to put six more fictional captains on the board,

0:22:290:22:33

and here they come. We have got...

0:22:330:22:34

I'll read those all one more time.

0:22:490:22:51

There we are. Six further fictional captains.

0:23:040:23:08

As ever, on Pointless, you're looking to find the one you think the fewest of our 100 people knew.

0:23:080:23:12

Simon...

0:23:120:23:13

There you are on 30, the high scorers at the moment.

0:23:130:23:17

Er, I'm going to go for Jules Verne's Nautilus commander

0:23:170:23:22

as Captain Nemo.

0:23:220:23:24

Captain Nemo, says Simon. Captain Nemo.

0:23:240:23:27

Let's see if that's right and if it is,

0:23:270:23:29

let's see how many people said it. There's no red line for you

0:23:290:23:31

as you are the high scorers.

0:23:310:23:33

It's absolutely right.

0:23:330:23:36

28.

0:23:400:23:41

28 for Nemo takes your total up to 58.

0:23:410:23:45

Very interesting now, 58 points, going to be a tough round for you.

0:23:470:23:50

The combined forces of Captain Scarlet

0:23:500:23:52

and Captain Nemo, scoring 58 points.

0:23:520:23:54

David, the high scorers are Simon and Trev,

0:23:540:23:56

on 58, you're on 21, that means a target score of 36 for you.

0:23:560:24:00

36 or less and you're in the head-to-head.

0:24:000:24:04

I'm going to do "appears in the title of an Elton John album."

0:24:050:24:09

I think it was Captain Fantastic.

0:24:090:24:11

Captain Fantastic.

0:24:110:24:14

Captain Fantastic. Let's see if that's right and if it is,

0:24:140:24:17

let's see how many people said it. There is your red line.

0:24:170:24:19

If you get below it, you're in the celebrity head to celebrity head.

0:24:190:24:24

It is Captain Fantastic.

0:24:280:24:30

Well done.

0:24:300:24:32

And you are in the head-to-head, very well done.

0:24:320:24:35

-6!

-Well done!

0:24:350:24:36

-Brilliant, Dave.

-This is a great score.

0:24:360:24:39

27 is your total.

0:24:390:24:42

Very well done.

0:24:420:24:44

We've had a pointless answer and a 6 from you, David.

0:24:440:24:47

Very well done indeed. Richard.

0:24:470:24:49

Very well played, David.

0:24:490:24:50

The full title, it was Captain Fantastic And The Brown Dirt Cowboy,

0:24:500:24:53

-by Elton John.

-Now then, Rick, you're the last person to have this board.

0:24:530:24:58

You can talk us through it if you like.

0:24:580:25:01

OK. Created by Kenny Everett, I've got a mind blank,

0:25:010:25:05

I honestly can't remember it.

0:25:050:25:06

Lives in Marlinspike Hall, I can only guess it's Captain Marlinspike,

0:25:060:25:11

but that's probably not right. Peter Pan's nemesis is Captain Hook,

0:25:110:25:14

but I'm going to go with Poirot's sleuthing partner

0:25:140:25:17

as Captain Hastings.

0:25:170:25:18

Captain Hastings,

0:25:180:25:21

Poirot's sleuthing partner. Captain Hastings, is it right?

0:25:210:25:24

How many people said it?

0:25:240:25:26

Absolutely right.

0:25:290:25:31

And you're through, very well done.

0:25:330:25:34

22!

0:25:350:25:37

-Takes your total up to 28.

-Well done, well done.

0:25:370:25:41

-Great answer.

-Well played, Rick. Captain Hastings appeared

0:25:410:25:45

in eight Poirot novels and lots of short stories as well.

0:25:450:25:48

Agatha Christie described him as Poirot's Watson,

0:25:480:25:51

as you might imagine. Peter Pan's nemesis, you were right about that

0:25:510:25:55

but if you'd said it, you'd have been knocked out

0:25:550:25:57

because it was Captain Hook but would have scored a fairly mighty 65 points.

0:25:570:26:01

Do you remember the captain created by Kenny Everett?

0:26:010:26:04

I remember what he looked like, I can't remember what he was called.

0:26:040:26:07

-Captain Kremmen. Captain Kremmen, the superhero.

-Oh yes!

0:26:070:26:11

Absolutely couldn't bring it to mind but as soon as you hear it...

0:26:110:26:14

And who's the captain who lives in Marlinspike Hall?

0:26:140:26:16

-Haddock.

-Captain Haddock, absolutely right, from the Tintin books.

0:26:160:26:20

Would have scored 1 point, the best answer on that board.

0:26:200:26:23

Very well done if you got that, very well done to anyone who got all 12 of those.

0:26:230:26:27

Thanks very much, Richard. At the end of Round Two,

0:26:270:26:29

the losing celebrity pair with the highest score...

0:26:290:26:32

It's weird. Even though I now know you're leaving,

0:26:320:26:36

you've still got that aura of winners!

0:26:360:26:37

We leave as winners, thank you!

0:26:370:26:38

Hang on, can't we do it like the normal Pointless

0:26:380:26:41

and we get to come back again tomorrow?

0:26:410:26:43

-That'd be nice.

-Let's do that.

-I'd like that.

0:26:430:26:45

-Yeah, we should do that.

-I'd love that. Trev, Simon, it's been lovely having you on the show.

0:26:450:26:50

-Thank you so much for playing.

-Thank you.

-Thank you.

0:26:500:26:53

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:26:530:26:55

-Good luck.

-But for the remaining two celebrity pairs,

0:26:550:26:58

things are about to get even more exciting

0:26:580:27:00

as we enter the head-to-head.

0:27:000:27:01

Congratulations, David and Hannah, Nicholas and Rick,

0:27:070:27:10

you are now only one round away from the final

0:27:100:27:12

and the chance to play for our jackpot which currently stands at...

0:27:120:27:15

You're now going to go head to head and the first pair to win two questions

0:27:220:27:25

will be playing for that jackpot for their chosen charities.

0:27:250:27:29

You are now allowed to confer, that's the other great news

0:27:290:27:32

at this part of the game. Very best of luck to all of you.

0:27:320:27:35

Let's play the head-to-head!

0:27:350:27:36

Here comes your first question and it concerns...

0:27:420:27:46

Celebrities when they were young.

0:27:490:27:52

-This sound fun, Richard!

-Yes. It's only pictures of them, it's not actually them.

0:27:520:27:56

-Still...

-We're about to show you five photographs

0:27:560:28:00

of very famous people, but taken when they were children.

0:28:000:28:03

Can you identify them and try and give us the most obscure answer, please? Very best of luck.

0:28:030:28:07

Thanks very much.

0:28:070:28:09

Let's reveal our five celebrities when they were young.

0:28:090:28:12

We have got...

0:28:120:28:13

OK, so there they are.

0:28:260:28:28

Five celebrities from when they were little.

0:28:280:28:31

David and Hannah, because you've played best so far,

0:28:310:28:34

by one point, you get to go first.

0:28:340:28:37

I think go with what...yep.

0:28:370:28:40

We're going to go with A and say Jeremy Clarkson.

0:28:400:28:43

Jeremy Clarkson for A. A, Jeremy Clarkson.

0:28:430:28:48

Nicholas and Rick.

0:28:490:28:51

Shall we go for C, Prince Charles?

0:28:510:28:54

Well, we know C, it is. We know that's for sure.

0:28:540:28:59

D looks awfully like my daughter!

0:28:590:29:02

LAUGHTER

0:29:020:29:04

I thought E was Beckham at one stage

0:29:040:29:08

-but I'm not sure.

-Oh, my gosh.

0:29:080:29:10

Oh, I think we're going to have to play what we know, really.

0:29:100:29:14

Let's go for what we know.

0:29:140:29:15

-Yeah.

-You're going to say C, Prince Charles.

0:29:150:29:18

-Yeah.

-So we have David and Hannah saying A is Jeremy Clarkson.

0:29:180:29:23

A, Jeremy Clarkson. Is that right and if it is,

0:29:230:29:25

how many people said A was Jeremy Clarkson?

0:29:250:29:28

It's right.

0:29:300:29:31

And it's going to be low.

0:29:310:29:33

Go on, David!

0:29:350:29:36

12!

0:29:360:29:38

APPLAUSE DROWNS SPEECH

0:29:380:29:40

Brilliant.

0:29:410:29:43

12 for Jeremy Clarkson.

0:29:430:29:46

Nicholas and Rick have said C is Prince Charles.

0:29:460:29:49

Let's see if that's right and if it is,

0:29:490:29:52

how many people knew that.

0:29:520:29:53

Absolutely right.

0:29:550:29:56

72.

0:29:580:29:59

APPLAUSE

0:29:590:30:01

Pretty conclusive there, after one question,

0:30:010:30:04

David and Hannah are up 1-0. Richard.

0:30:040:30:07

Well played, David and Hannah. Nothing you could have done, it's the best answer on the board,

0:30:070:30:11

Jeremy Clarkson. Let's take a look at the rest of them though.

0:30:110:30:14

B, any ideas?

0:30:140:30:15

-HANNAH:

-Kate Moss?

-Absolutely right.

0:30:150:30:17

Would have scored 13 points.

0:30:170:30:20

D is Nicholas Parson's daughter.

0:30:200:30:23

LAUGHTER

0:30:230:30:24

-Not really, it's Kate Winslet.

-Oh, I wondered that!

0:30:240:30:27

Well done if you got that at home.

0:30:270:30:29

She would have scored you 19.

0:30:290:30:31

And E, do you want one final go at this, Rick?

0:30:310:30:33

-We thought Beckham.

-We thought it was Beckham.

0:30:340:30:36

You are absolutely right, it is David Beckham.

0:30:360:30:39

That would have scored you 31 points, David Beckham,

0:30:390:30:42

so again, wouldn't have won the points.

0:30:420:30:44

Thank you very much. Here comes your second question.

0:30:440:30:47

Nicholas and Rick, you have to win this question to stay in the game.

0:30:470:30:50

It concerns...

0:30:500:30:53

Oh no! Ha ha!

0:30:530:30:55

We're going to show you the names of five British cheeses here

0:30:570:30:59

-or cheeses commonly associated with Britain.

-I love cheese.

0:30:590:31:02

But they are all in anagram form.

0:31:020:31:04

Can you solve the anagrams and give us the most obscure answer, please?

0:31:040:31:08

-Very best of luck.

-OK, thank you very much.

0:31:080:31:11

Let's reveal our five anagrams of British cheeses

0:31:110:31:13

and here they are. We have got...

0:31:130:31:15

I'll read them all one final time.

0:31:230:31:25

There you are. Five British cheeses.

0:31:300:31:33

Nicholas and Rick, you go first this time.

0:31:330:31:35

Shall we go for the first one or the third one?

0:31:350:31:38

I think the first one is probably the most unusual, yes.

0:31:380:31:41

We'll go for the first one, "newly sealed", as Wensleydale.

0:31:410:31:46

Wensleydale, for "newly sealed", say Nicholas and Rick.

0:31:460:31:51

OK, David and Hannah.

0:31:510:31:52

OK, we're going to go for the third one down, which is Caerphilly.

0:31:550:31:59

Caerphilly, the third one down, "clearly hip".

0:31:590:32:02

First we go for "newly sealed", which Nicholas and Rick identified

0:32:020:32:05

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

0:32:050:32:10

It's right.

0:32:120:32:13

23.

0:32:180:32:20

APPLAUSE DROWNS SPEECH

0:32:220:32:23

23. You've got to hope that's enough to keep you in the game.

0:32:230:32:26

It's got to be low enough. David and Hannah have come up

0:32:260:32:29

with Caerphilly for "clearly hip". Is it Caerphilly?

0:32:290:32:33

How many people knew that answer?

0:32:330:32:35

It's right. 23 is what it's got to beat.

0:32:380:32:40

Still going down.

0:32:400:32:42

Yeah, you've done it!

0:32:420:32:43

You've done it, you've done it. 10!

0:32:430:32:45

10 for Caerphilly.

0:32:460:32:47

Very well done, David and Hannah.

0:32:500:32:53

After only two questions, you are through to the final,

0:32:530:32:56

2-0, brilliant.

0:32:560:32:58

Very well played indeed.

0:32:580:32:59

-Er, "cad herd" is...

-Cheddar.

-Absolutely right,

0:32:590:33:03

would have scored...76. "His cheer"?

0:33:030:33:05

-Cheshire.

-Cheshire, absolutely right.

0:33:050:33:08

Would have scored 40. "Angry choirs", very well done, anybody at home

0:33:080:33:13

-who got this. It is Cornish Yarg.

-Oh, gosh!

-Cornish Yarg.

0:33:130:33:18

-A pointless answer.

-I love that cheese.

0:33:180:33:20

Yarg, named after the Gray family, Yarg being Gray backwards.

0:33:200:33:24

-That is clever.

-That is clever.

0:33:240:33:26

Very well done if you got that at home.

0:33:260:33:28

Very well done if you make that at home as well!

0:33:280:33:30

Thank you very much, Richard! So the losing pair

0:33:300:33:33

at the end of the head-to-head, it's Nicholas and Rick!

0:33:330:33:35

-AUDIENCE: Aaah...

-Yes, exactly, aaah.

0:33:350:33:38

There's so much luck in it. We both knew Caerphilly and Wensleydale,

0:33:380:33:42

which will get the lowest, and we went for the wrong one.

0:33:420:33:44

-Yeah.

-Luck and judgement!

0:33:440:33:47

Yes, we had the judgement and we had the bad luck!

0:33:480:33:52

Nicholas and Rick, it's been brilliant having you on the show, thank you for playing.

0:33:520:33:56

I'm sorry we have to say goodbye. Great contestants!

0:33:560:33:58

A great pleasure!

0:33:580:33:59

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:33:590:34:01

For David and Hannah, it's now time for our Pointless final.

0:34:010:34:05

Well, congratulations, David and Hannah.

0:34:080:34:11

You've seen off all the competition

0:34:110:34:13

and you have won our coveted Pointless trophy.

0:34:130:34:15

You now have a chance to win our Pointless jackpot for your allocated charities.

0:34:200:34:24

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

0:34:240:34:27

You have played so well throughout this show.

0:34:310:34:35

You have been the lowest scorers in Round One, Round Two

0:34:350:34:38

and then a clean sweep in the head-to-head there, 2-0.

0:34:380:34:42

You come swanning into the final. You make it look so easy.

0:34:420:34:44

-Believe me, it's not!

-Really?

0:34:450:34:47

I'm so proud of David getting a pointless and adding to the jackpot.

0:34:470:34:51

You know, so if we win that, it's down to him that we've got the extra 250 on it.

0:34:510:34:56

-It'll be fantastic.

-The rules are very simple. To win the money

0:34:560:35:00

for your charities, all you have to do is find a pointless answer.

0:35:000:35:02

We've had one pointless answer on the show today, it was from you.

0:35:020:35:05

You only have to find one more. We nearly had another one from you just then.

0:35:050:35:09

If you find one more now, in this round, you will go home

0:35:090:35:12

with that money for your charities.

0:35:120:35:14

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

0:35:140:35:16

They are...

0:35:160:35:18

-How are you on your countries?

-I've been to one or two.

0:35:260:35:30

-Narrows it down then, doesn't it?

-Yes.

-Okey-dokey.

0:35:310:35:35

-What do you reckon?

-Well, OK, I really... Elements, eurgh...

0:35:350:35:40

In that case, I'd say between Countries and Modern Theatre for me,

0:35:400:35:44

-but whatever you...

-Countries and Modern Theatre, right...

0:35:440:35:48

-Countries we've got a fair chance at, haven't we?

-Shall we go Countries?

-Why not?

-Let's do it.

0:35:480:35:52

-Do you agree?

-Yeah, I agree, that's why I said "yeah".

0:35:520:35:56

-Yeah. Let's not fall out at this stage. Countries.

-Countries, OK.

0:35:560:36:01

Let's find out what our question's going to be on Countries.

0:36:010:36:03

-Here it comes. Best of luck.

-Thanks.

-We gave 100 people 100 seconds

0:36:030:36:07

to name as many island nations in the Pacific Ocean as they could.

0:36:070:36:13

Island nations in the Pacific Ocean. Richard.

0:36:130:36:16

Yeah, we're looking for any country that lies wholly or partly

0:36:160:36:19

in the Pacific Ocean and that shares no land borders with any other country.

0:36:190:36:23

As always, by country we mean a member of the UN

0:36:230:36:25

that is a sovereign state in its own right.

0:36:250:36:27

So any island nations in the Pacific Ocean. Very best of luck.

0:36:270:36:32

OK, you have up to one minute to come up with three answers

0:36:320:36:34

and all you need to win that £2,750 for your charities

0:36:340:36:38

is for just one of those answers to be pointless.

0:36:380:36:41

-Are you ready?

-Yes, yes.

-Let's put 60 seconds on the clock.

0:36:410:36:46

There they are, your time starts now.

0:36:460:36:49

-Fiji's the only one I can think of.

-Fiji, okey-dokey.

0:36:490:36:52

-Nauru.

-Oh, my gosh, that sounds good.

0:36:520:36:55

-I don't know where that is.

-It's a little island.

0:36:550:36:57

-In the Pacific? Marvellous.

-American Samoa, I think that exists.

0:36:570:37:01

Er...

0:37:010:37:03

-Tonga.

-I thought, yes, Tonga...

0:37:030:37:06

That's one, isn't it?

0:37:060:37:07

-OK.

-Er...

0:37:070:37:09

There's millions of them, they're dotted everywhere.

0:37:090:37:12

-Nauru, Tonga...

-Nauru definitely exists.

-Tonga and American Samoa.

0:37:120:37:17

-Yeah, I think that exists.

-Or just Samoa?

0:37:170:37:19

Samoa, I think it's split into two now.

0:37:190:37:23

I think Fiji's going to be high up so we ignore that one.

0:37:230:37:26

-Let's think of some other...

-Haiti's not, that's in the Caribbean.

0:37:260:37:30

Caribbean. It's where all the...

0:37:300:37:33

-Easter Islands, they're not Pacific.

-No.

0:37:330:37:37

See, I only really know answers that are in the wrong oceans.

0:37:370:37:41

-Ten seconds.

-Pitcairn? Is that a country or does that belong to Australia?

0:37:410:37:44

It's worth us having a go, we don't lose any points.

0:37:440:37:46

Is that a country, I think it belongs to...

0:37:460:37:50

OK, your time is up.

0:37:500:37:53

We were looking for island nations in the Pacific Ocean.

0:37:530:37:56

I now need your three answers.

0:37:560:37:59

-Nauru.

-Nauru.

-I think that's how you say it. N-A-U... Nauru!

0:37:590:38:04

-Just say it with confidence!

-Nauru!

0:38:040:38:07

Nauru, good.

0:38:070:38:08

-American Samoa.

-American Samoa.

0:38:080:38:12

Yeah. And...what's the other one you said?

0:38:120:38:16

-We don't want Fiji, do we? It was the other...

-Tonga?

-Tonga.

0:38:160:38:20

-Tonga.

-And Tonga. There we are. Of those three,

0:38:200:38:23

which do you think is your best punt at a pointless answer?

0:38:230:38:26

Nauru, I've never heard of it!

0:38:260:38:28

-Is that right?

-Yeah!

-Oh, is it an island then?

0:38:280:38:31

No, I'm sure you're right, I've just never heard of it!

0:38:310:38:34

-Put that one last.

-OK, Nauru goes in last.

0:38:340:38:39

-What shall we put first? Tonga or American Samoa?

-Tonga.

0:38:390:38:42

-Tonga.

-Tonga first, American Samoa in the middle.

-Let's do it.

0:38:420:38:45

Let's pop them on the board in that order. Here they are. We have got...

0:38:450:38:48

We were looking for island nations in the Pacific Ocean.

0:38:520:38:55

Tonga was your least confident shot at a pointless answer.

0:38:550:38:59

You only have to find one pointless answer to win the £2,750 jackpot.

0:38:590:39:04

OK, so let's see. Tonga, is it right? How many people said it?

0:39:040:39:09

Tonga. Good luck.

0:39:090:39:10

Yep, it's right. This is your first shot at that jackpot of £2,750.

0:39:120:39:18

Down it goes. Tonga.

0:39:180:39:20

If this goes all the way down to zero,

0:39:200:39:21

you leave here with that money...

0:39:210:39:23

-Oh, 7!

-Nauru's got to be good then, hasn't it?

-Yeah.

0:39:230:39:27

APPLAUSE DROWNS SPEECH

0:39:270:39:30

-7, that's good.

-That's good.

-It's not pointless but I don't think you were expecting it to be pointless.

0:39:300:39:35

-No, I thought it would be higher.

-So did I.

0:39:350:39:38

Unfortunately, not a pointless answer,

0:39:380:39:39

which means you only have two more shots at today's jackpot

0:39:390:39:42

of £2,750. What are your charities? David, what's your charity?

0:39:420:39:46

-Cancer Research.

-Very good indeed.

0:39:460:39:48

-It's a personal thing.

-Well, a great charity.

0:39:480:39:52

-Absolutely.

-Very best of luck.

0:39:520:39:54

Hannah, what's your charity?

0:39:540:39:56

-Mine is Diabetes UK.

-Another excellent charity.

0:39:560:40:01

APPLAUSE

0:40:010:40:04

Keeping our fingers tightly crossed that one of your two remaining answers

0:40:070:40:11

will win that jackpot for your charities.

0:40:110:40:13

OK, we are looking for island nations in the Pacific Ocean.

0:40:130:40:16

For £2,750, let's see how many people said American Samoa.

0:40:160:40:20

Ah.

0:40:240:40:25

-Samoa...

-OK, an incorrect answer as it turns out.

0:40:250:40:30

You only need one pointless answer and let's face it, your best answer,

0:40:300:40:34

Nauru, there it is, the bottom of the list.

0:40:340:40:36

Hannah hadn't heard of it, you were absolutely certain it's correct.

0:40:360:40:40

This sounds like a winning combination to me!

0:40:400:40:44

OK, we are looking for island nations in the Pacific Ocean,

0:40:450:40:49

your third and final answer was Nauru.

0:40:490:40:50

How many people said it?

0:40:500:40:53

It's right!

0:41:000:41:01

OK, Tonga took us all the way down to 7.

0:41:010:41:03

American Samoa teased us, turned out to be incorrect.

0:41:030:41:07

Nauru, still going down, still going down.

0:41:070:41:10

If this goes all the way down to zero...

0:41:100:41:12

Yes!

0:41:120:41:13

You've done it!

0:41:130:41:16

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:41:160:41:17

-That is fantastic!

-Very well done!

0:41:170:41:19

-David!

-Fabulous.

0:41:190:41:21

David, well done!

0:41:220:41:26

That's superb, congratulations!

0:41:270:41:29

Nauru was a pointless answer, which means you leave here

0:41:290:41:33

with the jackpot of £2,750 for your charities. Brilliant.

0:41:330:41:37

Fantastic performance. Richard.

0:41:400:41:43

Very well done, there's only four pointless answers on the board.

0:41:430:41:47

Let's take a look. Very well done anyone at home who said any of the following...

0:41:470:41:51

The Federated States Of Micronesia.

0:41:510:41:53

Trips off the tongue, doesn't it? The Marshall Islands, there's Nauru,

0:41:530:41:57

and the Solomon Islands, all of those are pointless.

0:41:570:42:01

Some low-scoring ones, Kiribati, there's Palau,

0:42:010:42:04

both of those would have scored 1, Tuvalu would have scored 1 as well.

0:42:040:42:07

But those are your four pointless ones.

0:42:070:42:09

Samoa was up there, it would have scored 9 but American Samoa is a dependency of the US,

0:42:090:42:14

-it's not a country in its own right.

-It does exist though?

0:42:140:42:16

It does exist, it's not a country but you couldn't care less, could you?

0:42:160:42:20

-Not really at this moment!

-Cos Nauru exists.

0:42:200:42:23

Congratulations.

0:42:230:42:25

APPLAUSE

0:42:250:42:27

Well, thanks once again to our winning celebrities,

0:42:300:42:33

David and Hannah, who go away with today's jackpot of £2,750.

0:42:330:42:38

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:42:380:42:40

Brilliant.

0:42:400:42:41

A huge thank you to our other celebrity pairs, Charlotte and Dan,

0:42:430:42:46

Trev and Simon, Nicholas and Rick.

0:42:460:42:48

Join us next time when we'll be putting more obscure knowledge to the test on Pointless.

0:42:480:42:52

-Meanwhile, it's goodbye from Richard.

-Goodbye.

0:42:520:42:54

And it's goodbye from me, goodbye.
