Hello. I'm Alexander Armstrong and welcome to a special celebrity edition of Pointless,
putting obscure knowledge to the test. Every question has been asked to 100 people before the show.
To be in with a chance of winning our final round jackpot,
our celebrities need the answers the fewest people thought of. Let's meet today's Pointless celebrities.
Please welcome Louise Minchin and Gyles Brandreth!
We know you from all sorts of things. Louise, you read the news very beautifully.
And Gyles, you've been many, many things, not least a politician.
-But together we probably know you best from The One Show sofa.
-We're One Show people.
-You cover so much ground.
-Yeah, we're ready.
Is there anything, if it cropped up, that you dread?
We're all pumped up. I dread sport, I dread movies, anything to do with the animal kingdom, nature...
-I dread almost everything.
Can I say something to reassure you both about today's show?
No, sorry. Sorry.
Well, very best of luck to you, Louise and Gyles. Great having you.
Next, please welcome Todd Carty and Bonnie Langford!
You've both been on our TV screens for decades. Bonnie, from Dancing On Ice, Todd, Grange Hill.
EastEnders. The Bill. You've been a part of all of our lives.
-ALL of our lives! You're working together at the moment.
-We're doing Spamalot.
-I play the Lady of the Lake.
-And I play Patsy, the half-wit.
So I don't know why I'm here.
Are you good at picking stuff up from roles you've played, Todd?
-The Bill, are you good on...?
-I know how to use a truncheon.
-That might come in handy.
-And that's about it!
-Ask me anything on musicals and I'll be maybe OK!
-Lovely having you on the show, Todd and Bonnie.
-A joy to be here.
Next, please welcome Pat Sharp and DJ Spoony!
We know you both as radio DJs. Spoony, we've seen you on Strictly Come Dancing.
Pat, we know you most recently from I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.
-I would hope you have music sewn up between you.
-We would hope so!
-Embarrassing if you didn't!
-This is the thing. Everyone expects us to be very good on music,
but we're known more for talking than our actual music knowledge.
-Do we call you Spoony or Johnathan.
-Call me Johnathan.
-I might go Spoony.
-Try both. I like that.
-Let's agree we can call him either.
-Let's say Mr Johnathan Spoony.
-Johnathan DJ Spoony.
-That's even more confusing!
Anyway, Pat, Spoony, Johnathan, it's lovely having you here. Very best of luck to you.
And, finally, Bernie and Linda Nolan!
I suppose we know you chiefly from the '70s supergroup, the girl group the Nolan Sisters.
But most recently we know Bernie from Brookside and The Bill, Linda in London's West End.
-Linda, what do you hope comes up? What's a perfect topic for you?
-Yeah, chocolate bars. That would be great.
Well, I'm not too bad... I'm not saying, in case it comes up and I really make a show of myself.
Don't worry about that. You'll be in such good company!
A very warm welcome to you. Very, very best of luck.
We'll discover all your hidden knowledge.
Only one person left to introduce. Cardboard cut-outs of him boost sales of desks and swivel chairs!
-He's my Pointless friend, Richard.
-This should be fun.
-I just realised Linda and Bernie are like a prototype female Jedward.
-Oh, my God!
You just come over here and say that, boy.
-That's a great thing to be!
-Lovely boys, but...
-Enormously successful, musically gifted...
-Now you're stretching it.
-Two out of three ain't bad.
Very good. Thanks, Richard. All our questions were put to 100 people,
but we want the obscure answers they didn't get. To stay in the game
our celebrities need to score as few points as they possibly can. Everyone wants a pointless answer
that none of our 100 people gave. Each time that happens, we'll add 250 quid to the jackpot.
As today's show is a celebrity special, each celebrity is playing for a charity,
and we start off with a jackpot of £2,500.
Right. If everyone's ready, let's play Pointless.
In this first round, you all give one answer and you cannot confer.
The pair with the highest score at the end is eliminated.
If you give me an incorrect answer, you score the maximum 100 points, so try to avoid those.
Our first category today is...film.
Can you decide who's going to go first and who's going second?
Whoever's going first please step up to the podium.
We gave 100 people 100 seconds to name as many Clint Eastwood films as they could. Richard?
Any feature film made for cinema release for which Clint Eastwood has an acting or directing credit,
prior to May, 2012. No TV films, short films or documentaries, but voice performances do count.
Any Clint Eastwood film, acting or directing.
Now then, Louise and Gyles, you all drew lots and today you are going first.
-Dirty Harry, says Louise.
-He's in it.
-Is it right?
How many of our 100 people said it?
Down it goes. Still going down. 35, there we are.
-That scores you 35 points.
-Well played, Louise. From 1971. He plays Harry Callahan.
Thank you, Richard. Now, Bonnie.
-We're looking for Clint Eastwood films.
-I've got a couple of ideas.
And... I'm going to take a risk on one.
I hope I'm right. Bridges of Madison County.
Let's see if that's right and how many of our 100 said it.
It's a great answer, Bonnie.
Look at that! Two!
-Very, very well played, Bonnie. Two for The Bridges of Madison County.
He starred in and directed it.
Very well done. Now, Johnathan.
A nice, obscure Clint Eastwood film.
I think the title's right. I hope so. He played a DJ in it.
I think Play Misty For Me.
Play Misty For Me. Bernie's furious with that answer! She had it teed up.
Play Misty For Me says Johnathan. Is it right? How many of our 100 people said Play Misty For Me?
It's absolutely right, Johnathan.
Good answer, good score.
Yeah, that's a very good answer. Again, he directed it and starred in it.
-Now then, Bernie...
-I am so annoyed!
-You had that all ready.
-You can do better than 12 points.
-I know quite a few of his films, but there's one I think is his.
If it is, it might be quite obscure. I don't know whether to go for it or one that's...
-I think I should risk it. That's why we're here.
-I'll only kill you.
I'm going to say Sudden Impact.
Sudden Impact. Is it right? How many of our 100 people said Sudden Impact?
Oh, it's right. Very well done.
Down it goes. Look at that! Two!
Wonderful, wonderful answer, Bernie.
-I knew she'd be fabulous!
-You and Bonnie, joint low scorers. Johnathan did you a favour then.
-He forced you into a better score. Richard?
Well played, Bernie. He reprised the role of Harry Callahan. And Linda's not going to kill you!
No, I knew she'd be fine. I had no worries.
Thanks. We're halfway through. Let's look at those scores.
Bernie and Linda and Bonnie and Todd on two apiece.
Then up to 12, Johnathan and Pat. And then up quite substantially to 35,
where we find Louise and Gyles. Luckily, we know that Gyles knows everything.
So if anyone can dig you out of that hole, Gyles, you can.
Very best of luck with that. Can the second players please take their places at the podium?
OK, we're looking for Clint Eastwood films. As ever, you want the one the fewest people could think of.
Linda, you're the joint low scorers on two.
The high scorers on 35 are Gyles and Louise. Score 32 or less and you are through.
-I won't kill you.
I'm going to have a go at...
Unforgiven. There is your red line.
If you get below that, you are through to the next round for sure.
How many people said Unforgiven?
And you're through to the next round! 25! That's a great score, Linda.
It takes your total up to 27.
Very well played, Linda. He was nominated for an Oscar for acting and directing.
-He won for the directing.
-Now then, Pat.
The high scorers on 35 remain Gyles and Louise. You're on 12.
If you can score 22 or less, you're into the next round.
I'm going to go with one of his Westerns, but not the most popular. The Outlaw Josey Wales.
-The Outlaw Josey Wales. How many of our 100 people said The Outlaw Josey Wales?
And you are through! Very well done! Six.
Six takes your total up to 18.
Well played, Pat. Quite a tidy little team, that. Things are getting worse and worse for Gyles.
From 1976. He plays Josey Wales and again directed that one as well.
Now then, Todd. The high scorers remain Gyles and Louise on 35.
If you can score 32 or less it is all over for Gyles and Louise.
-We are looking for Clint Eastwood films.
Any Which Way You Can.
Any Which Way You Can, says Todd. Below that red line, you go through to the next round.
Let's see if it's right and how many people said it.
It is right.
And you are through to the next round! Seven!
That takes your total up to nine.
-Very well played, Todd. I really want to see how Gyles gets out of this now.
There's plenty of pointless answers so if you wanted to add £250 to the jackpot,
this is your last opportunity.
I have no idea. I don't think I have ever seen a Clint Eastwood film.
-You mentioned Dirty Harry.
-It's the most popular because everyone else knew it, too.
If it was a success, I bet there was a sequel. I'm going to say Dirty Harry 2!
OK, we are looking for Clint Eastwood films.
You are the highest scorers on 35. You just have to hope this goes down as low as it possible can.
Maybe a pointless answer. It has to be right, though.
You are saying Dirty Harry 2. Let's see if that's right and how many said it.
-Bad luck, Gyles!
-Was it X-rated? Is that it?
-No, it's an incorrect answer, which means you score 100 points.
-Which takes your total up to an impressive 135!
-There we are!
-There were follow-ups to Dirty Harry. Magnum Force.
-Sudden Impact, The Dead Pool.
Let's look at some pointless answers. You've seen these, Gyles.
Very well done at home anyone who said Ambush At Cimarron Pass,
Bird, Changeling. That was a pointless answer.
Coogan's Bluff, Flags of Our Fathers, In The Line of Fire.
-Oh, that was a political one, too! I should have got that.
Let's look at a few more. Invictus, Midnight In The Garden of Good and Evil was pointless
and The First Travelling Saleslady. Well done if you said those.
Let's look at the worst answers, other than Dirty Harry 2.
Louise will find one familiar.
In third is Unforgiven, 25 points. The third highest answer of all.
The Good, The Bad and The Ugly on 32, which means Dirty Harry is the biggest answer of all on 35.
-That's why there were two sequels.
-Gyles's 100 makes you look better.
Not much, but a little. Thanks.
Thanks, Richard. So the losing pair with the highest score, I'm sorry to say, is Gyles and Louise.
Dear, oh, dear. But you have borne out what you said. You did say films you would be bad at.
-And you were.
-Consistent. I'm the kind of politician you can trust.
-I'm the kind of broadcaster you can trust!
-If we say we're going to lose, we deliver on our promise.
-Absolutely. But we love the show and it's been a treat.
Lovely to have you. Thank you so much for playing. Brilliant celebrity contestants.
But for the remaining three pairs it's now time for Round Two.
Obviously, there's only room for two celebrity pairs in the Head to Head,
so one pair will be leaving us at the end of this round.
Very best of luck to all three pairs. Our category for Round Two is...the animal kingdom.
Can you all decide who's going to go first and who's going second?
Whoever's going first please step up to the podium.
OK, so the question concerns...
On each pass I'll show you the names of six animal breeds. Tell us to which animal that breed belongs.
A nice, obscure answer scores fewer points. An incorrect answer scores 100 points.
There's 12 animal breeds in all. Good luck.
We are looking for the types of animal of which these are breeds. And we have got...
HE READS THE LIST
-I'll read those all one more time.
OK, there we are. Six breeds. You just have to tell us what kind of animal those breeds are.
You want the one the fewest people knew. Bonnie, you kick us off.
Em...I only know... Well, one for sure.
Tamworth is a breed of pig.
Tamworth pig. Is that right? How many people knew that answer?
Absolutely right, Bonnie.
How do I know that?!
At least it was right.
-Well played, Bonnie. It's a golden red, long-faced bacon pig.
-Why the long face?
-Because it's a bacon pig!
-There you are.
We want to know what type of animal are these breeds.
Well, I definitely know one. Leghorn.
One of these days, Bernie is going to throw her podium at you, Pat.
But I may be wrong in what I think it is. I'm going to say it's a...turkey.
-I may be a turkey by saying it. I'm thinking of Foghorn Leghorn in the cartoon.
OK, Leghorn, turkey, says Pat.
Let's see how many of our 100 people said that.
Bad luck, Pat. I'm afraid that's an incorrect answer and scores the maximum 100 points.
I'm sorry. Richard?
-Sorry, Pat. Spoony has it all to do on the second pass. I'll give the correct answer at the end.
-Hey, Bernie. You've had a stay of execution. You can take Leghorn if you like.
-I might know an Oxford Down.
-What do you think that might be?
I think it might be a sheep, but I'm going to go for Leghorn.
-I think Leghorn is a breed of cattle.
-Leghorn, cow, says Bernie.
Let's see if that's right and, if it is, how many people said Leghorn was a breed of cow.
Bad luck. Unfortunately, that is also an incorrect answer, so you also score 100 points.
-At least you're in good company.
-Not way out on your own.
I think you might be thinking of Longhorn. Pat was thinking on the right lines. It's a chicken.
That's what I meant. Better than a cow!
-Is that me?
-That's what I meant. Foghorn Leghorn, isn't that right?
-Wasn't he a turkey?
-No! Get over it!
-He's a chicken.
-He's like a turkey.
Foghorn Leghorn - he's a chicken.
It would have scored 33 points. You all avoided Beagle.
You were sort of right to. It's a big score, but better than 100.
-Bernie, you were right about Oxford Down.
It's a sheep. Nine points. The best answer in the round.
-The other two were also very good scorers.
-Do you know the Embden?
-It's a goose.
Four points. The Roborovski. For six points, do you know that?
It's a very tiny hamster.
About four centimetres long.
-A tiny hamster!
-Oh, yeah. Would have scored you six points.
We are halfway through. Let's look at the scores.
Only two scores between the three. Once again, Bonnie and Todd leading the field and looking very strong.
Then we travel up to 100, where we find our remaining pairs, Pat and Johnathan, Bernie and Linda.
-Very close, Pat. But wrong.
Spoony, Linda, it's going to be between you to see who stays with us and who leaves after this round.
OK, we're going to come back down the line. Can the second players take their place at the podium?
OK, so we are looking for the types of animals of which these are breeds.
And we have got...
I'll read those one more time.
We are looking for the types of animal of which these are breeds
and you want the one that the fewest of our 100 people knew.
-You get first dibs on this board.
-That is good.
-Do you know many of them?
-No, I know one of them, I think.
I'm going to go with Aberdeen Angus - cattle.
Let's see if Aberdeen Angus is cattle and if it is, how many people said it.
Better than 100. 86 takes your total up to 186.
Big score, but better than 100. From Aberdeen and Angus in Scotland, the Aberdeen Angus.
Johnathan, the high scorers on 186 are Linda and Bernie. You are on 100.
If you can score 85 or less, you are through to the head-to-head. How is that board looking?
Norfolk Black, I'd like to say chickens cos they did breed a lot of chickens in Norfolk.
You couldn't have turkey and chicken in the same game show.
We never studied Animal at school.
It was always my favourite subject - Double Animal every...
-Double Animal every Wednesday morning.
I'm going to go for Russian Blue, I don't know why, being a cat.
-Russian Blue - cat.
-No, that sounds good to me, Russian Blue - cat.
There's your red line. If you get below it, you are through to the head-to-head. Russian Blue - cat.
Let's see if that's right and if it is, how many people said it.
-It's right, Johnathan, and you are through to the head-to-head. Very well done.
36 takes your total up to 136. Very, very well done.
Very good answer. Well done. They're gorgeous, Russian Blue cats.
-They have lovely green eyes and lustrous coats.
Now, Todd, great news. You are in the head-to-head.
Even if you score 100 points, you won't overtake Linda and Bernie.
-What types of animals are these breeds?
-There's one I think I definitely know
because I've ridden one.
-A Clydesdale. I've ridden a Clydesdale.
-What is it?
-Well, when I rode it, it was a horse.
A Norfolk Black, we saw all the adverts on the telly, a turkey.
-And that's all I know.
-Which of those do you want to go for?
-Clydesdale. Clydesdale - horse, says Todd.
Let's see if it's right and if it is, how many people said it. No red line. You're already through.
-35 takes your total up to 77.
-Very well done indeed.
Well played, Todd. Clydesdale horse, produced in Scotland by crossing local mares with Flemish stallions.
Let's take a look at the rest of the board.
Now, Pat Sharp, the Norfolk Black...
-It's a turkey. And turkey would have scored you 20 points.
-That's like a chicken.
Let's take a look at the other two.
The Bagot is a goat. Goat, 5.
And the last one, the Lunkarya, is a guinea pig.
Would have scored you 3 points.
-Very well done if you got all 12 at home.
-Thanks very much, Richard.
At the end of the second round, our losing pair with the highest score, so sorry, Linda and Bernie.
-Never mind. We've had a lovely time.
-Back to the green room for a glass of wine.
-What a shame(!)
-Just the glass, eh, Bernie?
# You know me so well... #
-Linda and Bernie, it's been lovely having you on the show. Thank you so much for playing.
But for the remaining two pairs, things get even more exciting now as we enter the head-to-head.
Congratulations, Todd and Bonnie, Pat and Johnathan, you are now only one round away from the final
and a chance to play for our jackpot which currently stands at £2,500.
You now go head-to-head. The first pair to win two questions will be playing for that jackpot.
From here on in, you are allowed to confer. Let's play the head-to-head.
And here comes your first question. It concerns...
-For this question, we're going to show you five pictures of famous people depicted as waxworks.
-Can you simply tell us who those people are?
-Thanks, Richard. Let's reveal our five famous waxworks.
We have got...
OK, so there we have five famous waxworks.
Todd and Bonnie, you've played best throughout the show so far, so you get to go first.
-I don't know what A is. Do you know what A is?
-Go for B?
-We'll go for B.
-We're going to go for B.
-Who do you think it is?
-We think it's Ringo Starr.
-B, Ringo Starr...
-Well, it's not, but it's meant to be.
Pat and Johnathan, talk us through the rest of the board and nominate one.
C is Rooney and D is Brad Pitt, but we're going to go for A or E, I think.
-It would be really good to get E right and then we'll clean up.
-Could be a bad Catherine Zeta-Jones.
-Catherine Zeta-Jones's mouth is completely different.
-Who are you going for?
-I think A is Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Arnold Schwarzenegger. OK.
So we have Ringo Starr from Todd and Bonnie.
Let's see if that's right and if it is, how many of our 100 people said Ringo Starr for B.
It's absolutely right.
OK, 44. Now, Pat and Johnathan, you have said that A is Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Let's see if that's right and if it is, how many of our 100 people said Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Will it beat...
47. Which means, after one question, Todd and Bonnie, you are up 1-0. Richard?
To explain the ukulele and straw hat, that's Arnie as Detective John Kimble from Kindergarten Cop.
And that Ringo Starr is the Madame Tussauds head
from the front of Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.
-C, you're absolutely right, is Wayne Rooney.
That would have scored you 91 points.
-They've given him the eyes of a puma.
-They've made him look less attractive as a waxwork.
-They might have straightened his teeth.
-That is some going!
D is Brad Pitt.
That would have scored you 66.
That almost looks like the same species.
And the final one is a pointless answer.
-It's not Catherine Zeta-Jones. It's Lindsay Lohan.
-You said that.
Did you say that, Todd? It would have added £250 to the jackpot.
Thanks very much. Second question. Pat and Johnathan, you have to win this to stay in the game.
-I'm going to give you five pairs of initials for this question.
They represent two boxers who fought in the year and the place that will be mentioned.
I need you to give me the names of both of those boxers for each of the questions,
so full names of the boxers who took part in these fights.
OK, let's reveal our five pairs of boxers and here they are. Five pairs of boxers, eh?
I'll read those all one last time.
Now then, Pat and Johnathan, you go first this time.
I think the 1997 one is quite obvious.
You think that's the easy one, do you?
-What about Cardiff?
-I don't know that at all.
-OK, that's a good start.
-What about 1975?
-That's the Thrilla in Manila.
-OK, we will go for...
-I don't know...
-I know it.
-Don't take me personally...
-I know it.
The last one might be harder because it's so old.
All right, we'll go for HC/CC, 1963...
Henry Cooper, before he changed his name, against Cassius Clay, now known as Muhammad Ali.
OK, Henry Cooper, Cassius Clay, you are saying, 1963, London.
Now then, Todd and Bonnie...
-I believe the one just above the one that the boys are saying - Mike Tyson versus Evander Holyfield?
The one above that, I think it's Muhammad Ali versus Joe Frazier, obviously.
-The FB versus the LL one...
-That's Lennox Lewis.
-I don't know who FB is, but it's Lennox Lewis.
-Why don't you try Mike Tyson versus Evander Holyfield?
-Mike Tyson versus Evander Holyfield, 1997.
-You'll go for Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield.
Pat and Johnathan, you have to win this point. You've gone for Henry Cooper versus Cassius Clay.
Let's see if that's right and if it is, how many people said it.
30. Now then, Todd and Bonnie, you've said Mike Tyson versus Evander Holyfield.
If you get lower than 30 with this, you go through to the final.
Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, let's see if it's right and if it is, how many people said it.
Will it go below 30?
Yes, you've done it.
10 beats 30,
which means after only two questions, Todd and Bonnie, you are through to the final 2-0.
Well played, Todd and Bonnie. Spoony, you talked your way out of a point there. You really did.
You know all of them, I think. So, MA versus JF, the Thrilla in Manila between...?
That was Joe Frazier and Muhammad Ali.
That would have scored 36 points.
-FB versus LL?
-Frank Bruno against Lennox Lewis.
-That would have won you the point.
-And the top one, David Haye versus...?
-A pointless answer.
Very well done if you got that at home. Tough luck. You knew them all and just chose the wrong one.
Very bad luck. The losing pair at the end of the head-to-head, I'm sorry to say, Pat and Johnathan.
-You could have scored a pointless answer.
-I should have gone for it because Pat didn't know what it was.
When you know so much about something, it's hard to work out what's obscure.
Pat, Johnathan, thanks so much for playing. It's been brilliant having you here. Excellent contestants.
But for Todd and Bonnie, it's time for our Pointless final.
Congratulations, Todd and Bonnie, you have seen off all the competition
and you have won our coveted Pointless trophy.
We get a trophy. How exciting is that!
You now have a chance to win our Pointless jackpot for your nominated charities.
At the end of the show, the jackpot stands at £2,500.
Well, you've come, you've seen and you've conquered, I have to say. Every round, our lowest scorers.
-We were just lucky.
-We were lucky.
-You've played incredibly well. The rules are very simple.
To win that money, all you have to do is find a pointless answer. We haven't had any on the show today.
Find one now and you will leave with that jackpot money for your charities.
First, choose a category from these five options.
-I don't know. I haven't got a clue.
-I've got a clue you might know about soul divas.
Yeah, but you'll know about football managers.
-What do you want to do?
-Can we have Soul Football Diva Managers?
There are a lot of diva football managers, I think, actually!
-What do you want to do?
-OK. Soul Divas.
Soul Divas. Let's find out what the question is. Here it comes.
We gave 100 people 100 seconds to name as many Diana Ross UK Top 40 solo singles as they could.
-We're looking for any single released by Diana Ross
as a solo artist that reached the UK Top 40 prior to May 2012,
so nothing with The Supremes and no collaborations.
Just Diana Ross solo Top 40 hits. Very, very best of luck.
You have up to one minute to come up with three answers and all you need to win £2,500 for your charities
-is for just one of those answers to be pointless. Are you ready?
OK, let's put 60 seconds on the clock. There they are. Your time starts now.
-There's Reach Out And Touch Somebody's Hand.
-I Want Muscle. That's an obscurish one.
What's the Billie Holiday one she did?
Oh, I can't think. Ooh!
What about the one that goes...? HUMS TUNE
-Do you know that one?
-What? Sing it again.
-Do it again? With everyone listening?
I can't think. There's got to be three.
Ain't No Mountain High Enough.
That's quite obvious.
What other Diana Ross ones? Think, Bonn, think!
I've done Muscle.
My brain has gone completely blank!
How many have we got so far?
-SHE HUMS TUNE
-Oh, um... What is it?
Chain Reaction. But that will be an obvious one.
Um... I can't even think what I've said now. Um...
We're just going to have to go with it.
There's your minute up. We were looking for Diana Ross solo Top 40 singles. I need your three answers.
-I Want Muscle.
-I Want Muscle.
Reach Out And Touch Somebody's Hand.
Reach Out And Touch Somebody's Hand.
-And it's going to have to be Chain Reaction.
-OK, Chain Reaction it is.
-Which is your best shot at a pointless answer?
-I Want Muscle, I think.
-We'll put that last.
-And Chain Reaction we'll put first, your least likely shot?
-Let's pop them on the board in that order.
We have got...Chain Reaction, Reach Out And Touch...
-You even said that with brackets around it!
-I've never heard anyone say that. Reach Out And Touch...
I Want Muscle. There we are, your three answers.
We were looking for Diana Ross solo UK Top 40 singles.
Chain Reaction was your first answer, your least confident shot at a pointless answer.
You only have to find one pointless answer to win that money for your charities.
Let's see how many people said Chain Reaction. This is for £2,500.
Well, it's right.
It's right. If this goes all the way down to zero, it could do,
you leave here with £2,500...
-It isn't bad.
-There we are.
Probably her best-known hit and only 31 out of 100 people knew it.
Not a pointless answer, so you only have two more chances
to win that £2,500 jackpot for your charities.
-Todd, what's your charity?
-Very good indeed.
When I was doing The Bill, it was our favoured charity, so I've always stuck with it.
Whenever I've had a few quid, I've put some money towards them. If we win tonight, it would be fantastic.
Bonnie, what's your charity?
Mine is a lesser known charity called the CdLS Foundation
and it's for children and their parents and carers who suffer from Cornelia de Lange Syndrome.
-Thank you very much.
Very best of luck with your two remaining answers. Let's hope those charities benefit.
We are looking for Diana Ross solo UK Top 40 singles.
Let's hope nobody said Reach Out And Touch (Somebody's Hand).
This has to be right and pointless for you to win that money.
Both of those things, you leave with £2,500. How many people said Reach Out And Touch (Somebody's Hand)?
This is your second shot at our jackpot of £2,500.
If this goes all the way down to zero, you leave with that jackpot.
Now, that's more like it!
-Where are those four people?
-That's more like it. We are looking for Diana Ross solo UK Top 40 singles.
Your third and final answer, I Want Muscle, was your most confident shot at a pointless answer.
OK, to win the jackpot, your last chance, £2,500, this has to be pointless.
Let's find out. I Want Muscle - how many people said it?
What was it?
-Is it called something else?
-Maybe. We'll discover.
I'm afraid you didn't find that all-important pointless answer,
so you don't win today's jackpot of £2,500, but you go home with a Pointless trophy each.
As it's a celebrity special, we'll donate £500 to each celebrity pair for their respective charities.
-That's great. Thanks so much.
Sorry, Todd, Bonnie. You were brilliant throughout and you had a right old crack at the jackpot.
The song is actually called Muscles, written and produced by Michael Jackson.
-It would have scored 2 points.
-It wouldn't have been pointless anyway.
-It would have prolonged the agony.
Ain't No Mountain High Enough would have scored 7 points.
-Let's look at the pointless answers and hope you don't recognise any of them.
All Of My Life, Doobedood'ndoobe, Doobedood'ndoobe.
-That might be the one I was talking about!
-That's the one you meant!
If We Hold On Together, all of those were pointless.
I'm Gone, In The Ones You Love and Not Over You Yet, all of those would have won the money.
One Shining Moment, Sorry Doesn't Always Make It Right and Work That Body, all pointless answers.
We have to say goodbye to you, Todd and Bonnie, but it's been brilliant having you on the show.
-Thank you so much for playing.
-We've had fun. Thank you.
All that remains is to say thank you to all our pairs, Louise and Gyles, Bernie and Linda, Pat and Johnathan,
-and of course, our excellent finalists, Todd and Bonnie!
-Thank you very much.
Join us next time when we put more obscure knowledge to the test on Pointless.
-It's goodbye from Richard.
-And it's goodbye from me. Goodbye.
