APPLAUSE AND CHEERING
Thank you! Hello. I'm Alexander Armstrong.
Welcome to a special celebrity edition of Pointless,
the show that puts obscure knowledge to the test.
Every question on Pointless has been asked to 100 people before the show.
To have a chance of winning our final jackpot round,
our celebrities need to give answers that the fewest of our 100 people could remember.
Let's meet our Pointless celebrities!
First up, please welcome Ed and Lucy.
Ed and Lucy, you're both stand-up comedians. You've been on the circuit for years.
-A long time.
-How long have you known each other?
-We were working it out before the show. I think it's 14 years, maybe 15.
We could have had a child together, now doing its GCSEs!
It would be old enough to resent us!
Are you ready for Pointless? Do you know what's coming at you?
-I'm a massive fan of the show.
-I am. I don't want to say it, but I'm quite sad.
-I actually have it on Series Link on my personal...
-I like it,
I like the show, but he is properly like stalky about you two.
My wife said if I don't come home with the trophy, I needn't come home at all!
She just said, "Don't come home at all", but...
What would you like to see as a category, Lucy? What would be brilliant?
I like sweets. Or being a comedian. "The service stations of Britain."
Nominate a favourite.
-Southbound. Not north!
-It's the Vegas of services!
Anything else you'd like to see?
Films are good. Anytime you've asked name a film that such-and-such has been in,
I've always pulled an obscure one out of the hat - at home.
Very good. Best of luck to the pair of you. It's great to have you on the show. Thanks for joining us.
Next we welcome Ann and Craig.
Perfect. The pair of you clashed famously
when you were a contestant, Ann, on Strictly Come Dancing.
He wanted to make me pointless, but he wasn't allowed to.
Because the lowest score he could give me was one!
But he longed to give me nought.
-He's told me so!
-And now you dance together!
-We did on tour.
-We did, indeed.
-There's a film in that, isn't there?
-Yes, I'm writing it at the moment.
-Not sure what sort of film. A horror film, possibly!
-What are you like working together?
-I won't give away any secrets, but he's quite a nice guy!
-Yes, he really is.
-Is this true?
When you see him on Strictly, remember in future it's all an act!
-Am I spoiling it for you?
-Not at all, darling. I'm honest, and your dancing was horrendous!
And the nation can only agree with me!
-The nation did.
-But it kept voting!
I'd like to think you've got pretty much everything covered between the pair of you.
-I can't do pop music or soaps or sport.
-Pop music, soaps or sport?
-Luckily Craig is an expert on all those things.
I'm great with football. What I don't know about football
-is nobody's business.
-Supposing it's cricket?
-I know everything about cricket.
-Fantastic. We're OK.
-A very warm welcome to the pair of you. Best of luck.
Next we welcome Alex and Matt.
May I say how lovely it is to have you here. Now listen,
between you, you really have got absolutely everything covered.
-You do The One Show. Matt, you've got Countryfile as well.
To be fair, there's only a certain amount that the human body can retain as far as information goes.
-When it goes in, you have to get rid of it again.
-You can't retain that.
-Good disclaimer, there!
-Don't have any high expectations!
-Very good. Alex, what do you hope will come up today?
If I'm honest, rom-coms.
Male hosts on The One Show.
Very good. But sport - you presented the Six Nations.
Yeah, I know a little bit about rugby, but I bet you haven't got any rugby.
-I'll tell you something, Alex. You might be surprised when I tell you
that no, we don't have any rugby.
I mean, it is sickening, the bases you cover between the pair of you.
-We'll see how we go.
-We'll see. Calm down there.
It's brilliant having you here. Thank you for joining us.
Very best of luck to you. Finally,
we've got Jenny and John.
Jenny and John, you're our only married couple on the show today.
This puts you at a strong advantage.
Always remember marriage is a team effort.
So we're going to work as a team. Boobo's the captain of the team.
She takes all the blame if it's a disaster for us. Blame the Boobo.
-How long have you been married, Jenny?
-Forever, I think!
What are your strengths, Jenny? We'll come to John. I suspect I might know!
-And questions on dogs?
Unless I write one now, very, very quickly, no!
She's be terrific on dogs. Cooking - there's much more of me now than when she married me.
-She's a cordon bleu chef. Go on, Boobo.
-She'd be good on horses. There's already been betting taking place on this.
You've all seen the four couples in the paddock, then cantering down to the start.
Obviously odds-on here. Matt and Alex are odds-on.
Odds-on. 5-4 on, they are,
because of their general knowledge every day.
All the different quirks of human life. But weren't Ed and Lucy impressive in the paddock?
Top of the head, 9-4. 9-4, they are.
And Ann, so knowledgeable. And Craig round the world, he's done everything.
Burlington Bertie 130. And we are the 100-1 rags. No chance for us.
Can I just say, John, you're 100-1, yes?
Given that I'm in charge of the questions, I'd like £50 on you, please.
But you're not in charge of my brain!
Ah, that's what you think!
A very warm welcome to the pair of you. Great to have you. Outsiders, my foot!
You'll storm it. Canter home.
We look forward to discovering all your knowledge in the show.
There's only one person left to introduce, the man with the facts and figures, Richard.
-Wow, what about that for a field?
-A pretty good line-up, isn't it?
I'd just like - for no reason - it's just worth remembering,
a couple of minutes ago, Ed said the rounds when you ask the films of a certain person,
"I always get a good one on those", I'm just reminding you he said that!
-OK. Thank you very much.
-I did say at home! I stressed at home!
You've got to play like you were at home. Do that.
-What? In my underpants?
It would seem inappropriate!
-What's wrong with men in their underpants on television?
-What's wrong with it?
-John is our first contestant to be dressed as an American civil war officer!
First ever. Pointless history!
No support for the Confederacy here!
I'm a Union man!
We put all our questions to 100 people before the show.
But we're after the obscure answers they didn't get.
To have a chance to win our jackpot, all you need to do is score as few points as possible.
Everyone's trying to find a pointless answer that none of our 100 people gave.
When that happens, we'll add £250 to the jackpot.
As today's show is a celebrity special, and our celebrities are playing for charity,
we start off with a jackpot of £2,500.
Right. Let's play Pointless!
In the first round, each of you must give me one answer and you cannot confer with your partner.
The team with the highest score at the end of the round will be eliminated.
If anyone gives me an incorrect answer, they score a maximum 100 points. So avoid those!
OK. Our first category this afternoon is...
Decide in your pairs who's going first and who's going second.
Whoever's going first, please step up to the podium.
Let's see what the first question is.
We gave 100 people 100 seconds to name
as many Robert De Niro films as they could. Richard?
Any feature film made for cinema release for which De Niro received an acting credit
prior to May 2011.
-No TV films, short films or documentaries but voice performances do count. Best of luck.
Ed and Lucy, you drew lots before the show and you get to go first.
I'll go for the least famous famous one I can think of!
-Which is Midnight Run.
-What a great film.
-It's amazing. I love it so much.
Let's see if Midnight Run is right, and if so, how many people said Midnight Run.
It's not a bad answer at all, Lucy.
Down it goes. Look at that - two!
Almost a home run for Midnight Run.
-Two points, Lucy. Fantastic. Richard?
-Well played, Lucy.
See how happy Ed looks! Amazing start.
-Did I do good?
-He plays there... Plays bounty hunter Jack Walsh.
-Craig, Robert De Niro films.
-Bit of a nightmare, darling!
-I can't think of the name of it. It's one I went to see
where he was murdering people and they were on a boat.
-I'm looking for clues.
-Don't give away... Don't give away...
Oh, I'm giving too much away, am I?
-No, you can...
-I know it has something to do with water and psycho something.
Anyway, I'm going to say Godfather.
-You're going to say The Godfather.
-Ann likes that!
You hope to score as few points as possible.
Is it right, and if so, how many of our 100 people said The Godfather?
-We'll get 200. Don't worry!
That's an incorrect answer. That's a maximum of 100 points.
-It'll be 200 in a minute.
-I'm very sorry. Richard?
-Sorry, Craig, you've made me an answer I can't accept!
-So, Matt. Robert De Niro films.
-I think you'll clean up here.
I'm trying to think the least people would have said.
-I'm going to try my luck with Meet The Fockers.
Meet The Fockers. OK, you're hoping to score as few points as possible.
Let's see if it's right and if so, how many of our 100 said Meet The Fockers.
Not bad at all, Matt. Good answer. 34 for Meet The Fockers.
Well played, Matt. He plays Jack Byrnes, a CIA agent, in Meet The Fockers.
-I know nothing about films!
-She sees them on aircraft!
-That's about all.
Robert De Niro films.
Taxi Driver? No?
-OK. Is that your answer?
-Given with elan, if I might say!
Taxi driver says Jenny. Is it right,
and if it is, how many people said Taxi Driver?
Very well done, Jenny. It's perfectly right.
Down it comes. 37. Not a bad score at all!
Well done, Boobo! Fantastic!
-37 for Taxi Driver.
-Well played, Jenny.
He plays Travis Bickle
-in Taxi Driver.
We're half-way through the round. Let's see the scores. Lucy!
-Lucy, to think you worried about that answer!
-I was scared.
-It scored you two.
At 34, Matt and Alex are looking pretty good as well.
Up to 37, Jenny and John there.
It would normally be conspicuously ahead,
but for Craig and Ann's lovely big round 100.
Ann, luckily, you know as much about Robert De Niro films as anyone.
-So I know you can find an obscure answer on the next pass.
-Otherwise we may have to say goodbye.
-You will be saying goodbye!
OK, can the second players take their places at the podium.
Remember, we are looking for Robert De Niro films. John?
I know there was a boxing film. I think it was about Jake LaMotta,
the fighter. But I don't know the name. So I'll say Jake.
-Or The Champ. The Champ.
-You're going to say The Champ. The Champ says John.
Here's your red line, John. That's your target.
If you get below that red line, you're definitely in the next round.
-Let's see is it right. The Champ. How many people said The Champ.
Sorry, I let you down, Boobo. Again!
Don't worry, John, it'll be fine.
-I'm so sorry.
-That scores you 100 points.
That takes your total up to 137.
-Valiant effort. There is a film, The Champ. John Voight starred in that. We'll fill the rest in later.
Alex, we are looking for Robert De Niro films.
You're on 34. The high scorers on 137 are John and Jenny.
Even if you score 100 points, you won't overtake their score.
So you're safe and sound, through to the next round.
-Just to let you know that.
I'm going to go for Meet The Little Fockers.
Meet The Little Fockers.
Right. Meet The Little Fockers. Is that right, and if so, how many people said it?
No red line for you cos you're through.
-Are you sure?
-Interestingly, that is an incorrect answer.
It scores a maximum of 100 points and takes you to 134.
You're through to the next round. It couldn't matter less. Richard?
-I'll explain all at the end of the round.
-Very good. Now, then, Ann.
-This is the moment of truth.
-There is no truth cos I couldn't name you a single Robert De Niro film.
Because Craig says it's a nightmare I'm going to elect Nightmare on Elm Street, which he did not make.
-He didn't make it.
OK. Nightmare on Elm Street says Ann. There's your red line.
-Below that red line...
-Don't worry about it. He didn't make it.
-OK. Nightmare on Elm Street. Is it right...
-Course it's not!
-Let's find out, shall we?
-We know already.
-No, we don't!
-Oh, the jeopardy!
There is none!
Nightmare on Elm Street. Is it right, and if so how many people said it?
Nobody cos it's wrong.
There we are, then!
-There we are.
-We're going home.
Unfortunately an incorrect answer so you score 100 points.
-He wasn't in Nightmare on Elm Street, I'm afraid.
He was up for the main role. They gave it to Marlon Brando in the end!
Brando played Freddy Krueger!
Now, Ed. Whatever happens you're through to the next round.
Sorry to take the pressure off you like that!
Let's put some new pressure on. I bet there are some pointless films no-one's thought of apart from you.
I'm thinking of one, but I'm not 100 per cent sure of the title.
-You were thinking of Raging Bull and you were thinking of Cape Fear.
-That's it! That's it!
It's like a Miss Marple scene, isn't it?
He was in a movie version of a cartoon called Rocky and Bullwinkle.
Rocky and Bullwinkle is your answer.
Here we go. You're on two. It doesn't matter what you score, you're through anyway.
Is that right and if so how many people said Rocky and Bullwinkle?
Well done. It's right.
What about that?
Fantastic score. You equalled Lucy's amazing low score of two, taking your total up to four.
How many people know Midnight Run as Rocky and Bullwinkle?
-There's no justice.
-Because Rocky and Bullwinkle is awesome.
From 2000, yes, The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle.
To clear up some of the other answers. Craig was most unlucky.
He wasn't in The Godfather, but was in Godfather II.
-That would have scored you seven points.
-Oh, never mind!
Raging Bull would have scored 21 points. The Jake LaMotta film.
It's not Meet The Little Fokkers, it's just Little Fokkers. That would have scored 17.
No pointless answers, but plenty on the board.
See if you got any at home.
A Bronx Tale, which he also directed.
Angel Heart - he was the devil. Terry Gilliam's Brazil.
Godsend. Great Expectations, an updating of the Dickens' novel.
Quentin Tarantino's Jackie Brown.
The Bridge of San Luis Rey - he was the archbishop of Peru.
The Score, Ed Norton and Marlon Brando and Wag The Dog, Dustin Hoffman.
Well done if you said those at home.
Thank you, Richard. At the end of Round One, the losing pair with the highest score is Ann and Craig.
I did say things like pop music, sport, soaps, films, not my scene.
-No, no, no.
-Not my scene.
-Well, OK. Fair enough.
Fair enough. Craig,
-this is awful that you have to leave us so soon.
-I just need a II.
-I know. You'd be through.
-Cape Fear! Darling, I went to pieces!
It was a nightmare!
Ann and Craig, thank you for joining our celebrity edition of Pointless.
For the remaining three pairs, it's time for Round Two.
There's only room for two pairs in the head-to-head,
so one of these teams will be leaving us at the end of this round.
Try and make sure it's not you. Our category for Round Two is...
Can you decide in your pairs who's going first and who second?
Whoever's first, step up to the podium.
So, our Round Two question this afternoon concerns...
We'll show you a list of six sporting trophies and awards on each pass.
We asked 100 people to tell us in which sport are or were these trophies awarded.
Give us an obscure answer and you'll score fewer points. An incorrect answer scores 100 points.
12 trophies and awards, 12 sports to get at home. Best of luck.
The sports in which these trophies are awarded. Here's our first list of six.
Shall I read those one more time?
Lucy? Do you feel better now you've seen the list?
No - worse!
-I'm going to play safe and say The Lonsdale Belt is boxing.
Lonsdale Belt, boxing. Ed likes that.
Matt likes that. Is it right, and if so, how many people knew that answer.
Lonsdale Belt, boxing. Good luck.
54. It's not bad.
It's a whole lot better than 100. Lonsdale Belt.
A lot better than 100. It's the oldest championship belt in boxing.
Named after Lord Lonsdale. The late Henry Cooper was the first man to win three.
-How are you feeling about this?
-A little bit sick!
Now, I know two. But do you take a little gamble?
I think I'm going to have to go safe
and go Ryder Cup. Golf.
Ryder Cup golf to Banbury Cross!
Ryder Cup golf says Alex. Is that right
and if it is, how many people said Ryder Cup - golf.
-It's right. Not a bad score.
-At least it's right!
-Right, it's damage limitation in rounds like this so that's a good tactic.
-First played for in 1927, the Ryder Cup.
-Very well done, Alex.
You're the last person to have this board so you can sweep up.
Fill in all the missing answers and submit the one you think is best.
The obvious one for me to go for now is Calcutta Cup. England-Scotland rugby. I know that.
You're going for Calcutta Cup, England-Scotland, rugby.
Let's see if that's right and if so, how many people knew that answer?
-Look at that! 21!
Who else knew? Who else knew?
Isn't he so arrogant in victory!
21 for the Calcutta Cup in rugby. Richard?
Well done. 21 other people knew, certainly!
As you say, it's the England-Scotland match at Six Nations.
It's the best answer. Let's fill in the board.
The FA Cup, well avoided, as it would have scored 84 points.
The Venus Rosewater Dish. The name is not familiar
but it's a famous trophy.
It's the silver salver presented to the ladies' champion at Wimbledon.
That would have scored 11 points.
The Corbillon Cup, the best answer in this round. Any idea?
You would have to play this to know the answer - table tennis.
We're halfway through the round. Let's see the scores.
John and Jenny looking very strong on 21. Fantastic answer, the Calcutta Cup.
Then up to 54, where Lucy and Ed are, and up to 67 for Alex and Matt.
So Ed and Matt, the tussle is between you, I'd say, in the next pass. OK,
can the second players please take their places at the podium.
Here we go. Six more trophies on the board. Here they come.
Let me read those one more time.
We are looking for the sports for which these trophies are awarded.
Jenny. The high scorers on 67 are Matt and Alex.
You're on 21. If you can score 45 or less with this answer,
you're in the head-to-head.
Cheltenham Gold Cup is horse racing.
Horse racing, Cheltenham Gold Cup says Jenny.
John thinks that's right, you'll be pleased to hear!
If you get below that red line, you're definitely through.
Is it right and how many people said Cheltenham Gold cup, horse racing.
-Could have been better.
-57. That takes your total up to 78. Richard?
Well played. The most prestigious chase in the racing calendar, would you agree, John?
100 per cent.
-Very good. Now, Matt.
-Jenny and John are the new high scorers on 78.
You're on 67. If you can score ten or less, ten or less with this,
you're through to the head-to-head.
I am thinking back.
I played baseball when I was on Blue Peter.
-I forgot you did Blue Peter.
-I don't know why I think this,
they'll be screaming at the telly saying, "Don't be stupid!"
but I'm thinking for some reason The Thomas Cup is something to do with baseball.
Thomas Cup, baseball.
It's probably completely insane, but...
-It needs to be insane.
-It's the least one I can come up with. Anyway.
Sounds brilliant to me. There's your red line.
If you get below that red line with Thomas Cup, you've done it.
Let's see if it's right,
very exciting, let's see if he's right. Thomas Cup, baseball.
If it's right, how many people said it?
Bad luck, Matt. That's an incorrect answer and scores you a maximum 100 points.
-Taking your total up to 167. I'm sorry.
-That's all right.
I'll tell you at the end of the round in case Ed wants a go.
-The good news is you've made Ed very happy.
Wow, Ed. You've done it. You've done it again.
Through on a bye. See if you can find a low-scoring answer on that board.
I'm going to take a guess.
I've half a mind that the America's Cup is boating.
Boating. OK. America's Cup - boating.
-Sailing, if you like.
-Boating. I like boating.
Is Ed right? How many people said America's Cup - boating.
There we are. 40.
Takes your total up to 94.
-Well played, Ed. Boating or sailing or yachting.
It's an invitational challenge yacht race.
The rest of the board - The Ashes was cricket, a big score at 82.
The Jules Rimet Trophy, the other name for the World Cup. Scored 29.
The Hawthorn Memorial Trophy, named after Mike Hawthorn, a motorcyclist and Formula 1 driver.
It's Formula 1 racing, seven points.
The Thomas Cup, I'm afraid, is not baseball, it's badminton.
It would have scored three points, the best answer on the board.
-Well done if you got that at home.
-At the end of Round Two, the losing pair
with the highest score, I'm sorry, are Matt and Alex.
You were on the right scent there, I think.
The first two letters were right, anyway!
It's hitting something.
-It's hitting something and starts with ba...
-We have to say goodbye. Thank you for coming on the show.
-It's been brilliant.
For the remaining two celebrity pairs things will get more exciting in the head-to-head!
Well done, Ed and Lucy, Jenny and John. You're in the head-to-head.
Only one pair can make it through to today's final
and play for the jackpot which currently stands at £2,500.
For each question, each pair gives me just one answer, but you may now confer.
This is where the fun starts!
Just give an answer that scores less than the other pair to win that question.
The first to win two questions will play for our jackpot. Let's play Pointless.
OK. Here is your first question.
We gave 100 people 100 seconds to name
as many Leona Lewis UK Top 40 hits as they could. Richard?
Any solo single released by Leona Lewis that's reached the UK top 40
prior to May 2011.
-Where there was a double-A-sided single, we'll accept either.
-Ed and Lucy,
you've played best so far, so you get to go first.
Leona Lewis UK Top 40 singles.
We only know one, and we're hoping that's going to be all we need.
# Keep bleeding, Keep, keep bleeding #
Just doing that was right!
Jenny and John, if you're wanting Bleeding Love, it's gone.
I could do with some bleeding love now, I can tell you!
I'm not... It's pathetic.
Not a clue. Pop music, Lady Gaga, all these people, not a clue.
What shall we say? "I Love You".
-I Love You. Listen, John...
-That won't help - give him an answer!
OK. We have Bleeding Love and we have I Love You.
Ed and Lucy. Bleeding Love - is it right and if so how many people said it?
It is right.
38. Jenny and John, I Love You. Is that right?
-We knew it wasn't.
-So after one question, Ed and Lucy are ahead one-nil. Richard?
Well done, Ed and Lucy. It was nearly a brilliant answer.
If you'd said "I Got You" it would have scored you three points!
Let's look at all the answers here.
A Moment Like This was a Christmas number one in 2006.
OK. Here is your second question.
Jenny and John, you have to win this question to stay in the game.
We gave 100 people 100 seconds to name
as many communist states as they could. Richard?
As of May 2011, there are five single-party communist countries left in the world.
We want one of those five and by a country we mean a UN member
which is a sovereign state in its own right.
OK. Now, Jenny and John, you go first this time.
We've got China! We've got China!
-You'll always have China!
-We've got China and North Korea which will be higher...
-Higher than Cuba.
Is it not Tajikistan? Somewhere?
-Do you want to take the risk or shall we gamble?
-I won't risk it.
-Let's go North Korea.
-We'll go for North Korea, I think.
-OK, North Korea.
We have Cuba. We have North Korea.
Jenny and John said Cuba. Is it right, and how many people said Cuba?
Down it goes. 29!
29 for Cuba.
Now, North Korea you think will be higher than Cuba?
OK. Let's see. North Korea. Is it right, and how many people said it?
It's going to be close! Ooh! 32!
32 for North Korea.
A nose - the shortest distance it could possibly have been, a nose.
In horse racing that was a nose.
A nose. You won it by a nose, Jenny and John.
Which means after two questions it's one-all.
-Very exciting. Richard?
-Tactically a very good answer from John.
Of the more obvious answers he picked the most obscure.
There are two answers that would have beaten Cuba.
Well done at home if you'd said Laos, which scored two,
and Vietnam, which scored ten.
Those are the great answers. Cuba, 29, well played, John.
North Korea 32 and China up the top on 44.
Thank you, Richard.
Here's your third question, the decider.
Whoever wins this question goes through to the final. Here it comes.
We gave 100 people 100 seconds
to name as many Top of the Pops dance troupes as they could.
-Top of the Pops dance troupes.
-It all hangs on this.
Any resident dance troupe on Top of the Pops from 1964 to the end of the series
in 2006, please.
So, Ed and Lucy,
you go first this time.
We have three. We're thinking which is the most obscure.
I'm letting him decide cos I'm scared of him!
-We're going to say Hot Gossip.
-Hot Gossip say Ed and Lucy. Hot Gossip.
Jenny and John.
The only one we know, there's nothing else left,
is Pan's People. That's the one we know.
But it'll be more popular than Hot Gossip.
Pan's People say Jenny and John.
-I think we should have gone with the other one.
-What was that?
-Legs & Co.
-We were thinking Legs & Co.
I think that's the most obscure, but he's the boss!
It's all my fault!
We have Hot Gossip. We have Pan's People.
-Hot Gossip. Pan's People.
-What a party that is!
Ed and Lucy said Hot Gossip. Is it right, and how many people said Hot Gossip?
Jenny and John, you merely have to be correct
and you are through to the final.
Pan's People say Jenny and John. Is it right?
It is right!
You've done it. 78. It's a high score.
APPLAUSE DROWNS SPEECH
You have done it.
Jenny and John, after three questions you're in the final.
That's the 100-1 outsiders through to the final.
Why does everyone know Pan's People above the others?
I can't imagine.
-Were Hot Gossip just on the Kenny Everett Show?
-Just on the Kenny Everett Show
and the Kenny Everett Video Show. You know what?
I bet an awful lot of people thought Hot Gossip were on Top of the Pops.
If you'd said Legs & Co, as Lucy suggested,
you'd have scored 21 points.
You'd be in the final. So sorry.
Let's take a look at all the answers.
Ruby Flipper appeared for six months in the '70s.
Zoo, in the early '80s for a few years, seven.
Legs & Co, 21.
Pan's People, 78. No Hot Gossip to be seen. Sorry. Tough luck.
It was Top of the Pops' loss. That's why Top of the Pops isn't around today!
Exactly. You had the last laugh!
So the losing pair at the end of the head-to-head is Ed and Lucy.
Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear.
But what an amazing game you've had. Two fantastic Robert De Niro answers.
-We've had a lot of fun.
-A lovely day out.
Ed and Lucy, thank you for playing. Absolutely fantastic contestants.
For Jenny and John it's time for our Pointless final and the chance to win our jackpot of £2,500.
Congratulations, Jenny and John. You've fought off the competition.
You've won our coveted Pointless trophy. Well done.
You now have a chance to win our Pointless jackpot for your charity.
At the end of today's show, the jackpot stands at £2,500.
To win that money, all you have to do is find a pointless answer,
an answer that none of our 100 people could think of.
We haven't had any pointless answers today. You only have to find one now
and you take home that money for your charity.
First, you have to choose a category from these three options:
-European football. I should know a bit about that.
-I know nothing about it.
-I'll go European footy, but I know nothing about it.
European football. OK, let's see what the question is.
We gave 100 people 100 seconds
to name as many teams that have lost a European Cup Final as they could.
Any team that has lost a UEFA Champions League final
or previous to that a European Cup Final since the beginning of the tournament up to the 2011 final.
-Best of luck.
You now have up to one minute to come up with three answers
and all you need to win that £2,500 for your charity
is for just one of those answers to be pointless.
Your 60 seconds start now.
It's no good saying Manchester United as everybody else would get that. No good, that.
I might say Red Star Belgrade.
They sound a possibility.
-Red Star Belgrade.
-Go with what you want.
What about Moscow?
Moscow Dynamo. Or did they beat Chelsea?
It was in Moscow, the Chelsea game.
Red Star Belgrade,
and somebody who we don't know much about who's got into the final.
-Who weren't very good, but got there. Come on.
-Haven't a clue!
An English team who've lost in the final.
Or a German team.
What about Schalke? I'll say Schalke.
-Schalke. So three hopeful moderate European teams.
Do you want to stop the clock if you're happy with those?
Stop the clock. Your time is up.
We wanted teams that have lost a European Cup Final.
I need your three answers.
-Belgrade. Red Star Belgrade.
-Moscow Dynamo. OK. Your three answers.
Of those three, which is your best shot at a pointless answer?
Maybe Schalke. I just don't know.
-But I can't go for Manchester United and Celtic and all those.
-OK. So Schalke we'll put last.
-And your least likely punt?
-Moscow Dynamo. I shouldn't think they ever got through!
Moscow Dynamo we'll put first. We'll put them up in that order.
OK. We were looking for teams that have lost a European Cup Final.
Moscow Dynamo. This is your first answer for that £2,500 jackpot
for your charity. Moscow Dynamo.
Is it right, and if so, how many people said it?
An incorrect answer, therefore not pointless. Two more chances to win today's jackpot
-for your charity. What charity have you nominated?
They work with retraining racehorses and children with special needs and animals.
They do a lot of good work there.
-And for racing, helping the old warriors when they retire.
If we don't help ourselves, no-one else will.
These poor old horses. A wonderful life and the kids get on them really excited.
-Greatwood is a superb racing charity.
-Fantastic. Very good indeed.
So great for the horses, great for the children as well.
OK. Let's hope with one of your two remaining answers, maybe even both of them,
you can win that jackpot.
OK. Your second answer is Red Star Belgrade.
Remember this has to be correct and it has to be pointless to win that jackpot of £2,500
for your charity. Let's see.
Red Star Belgrade. Is it right? How many people said it?
Best of luck.
Bad luck. Another incorrect answer.
You're at the right fringes, surely, of European football.
You only have one more chance to win today's jackpot.
And you're going with Schalke.
Schalke. This is your last chance. If this is right,
and it goes down to zero, you leave here with £2,500 for your charity.
This was the one you had most faith in to be pointless.
Let's see if it is.
Schalke. Is it right? How many people said it?
-Bad luck. Bad luck.
-Sorry about that.
I let the Boobo down again!
Unfortunately, you didn't manage to find that crucial pointless answer.
So I'm afraid you don't win the jackpot of £2,500 for your charity.
But you do take home our Pointless trophy. Well done.
They were genuinely great answers.
You were right. All the obvious ones, Man Utd, Chelsea, Bayern Munich, scored big points.
It had to be random teams. When I played the round before the show, I went for Red Star Belgrade.
They won it in '91 against Marseilles. Never been a runner-up.
Moscow Dynamo have never been in the final. And Schalke got to the semi-finals.
So genuinely, three great answers.
Let's see the ones that would have won the money.
Liverpool beat Borussia Moenchengladbach in 1977.
Liverpool beat Brugge in 1978.
That was a pointless answer. Fiorentina. Hamburg, beaten by Nottingham Forest.
All those were pointless.
-Your answers were on a par with those.
-It was pitiful. Nine answers and I couldn't get one.
-The man said you did very well!
-Yeah, but he's a flatterer!
-I think Alexander will tell you I'm definitely not!
He's really not a flatterer!
Unfortunately, we do have to say goodbye to you, Jenny and John.
It's been brilliant having you on the show. Thank you both for playing.
And a huge thank you to all our other celebrity pairs - Ann and Craig, Alex and Matt
and Ed and Lucy.
Nobody's won our jackpot today so to thank our celebrities for taking part in our special edition,
we'll donate £500 to each pair for their respective charities.
-So it's goodbye from Richard.
-And goodbye from me. Goodbye.
