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

0:00:250:00:29

and very warm welcome to a special celebrity edition of Pointless, where we test obscure knowledge.

0:00:290:00:36

Every single question has been asked to 100 people.

0:00:360:00:40

To be in with a chance of winning our final round jackpot, we need the answers

0:00:400:00:45

that the fewest of our 100 people could remember. Let's meet our Pointless celebrities.

0:00:450:00:52

-First up, welcome Dick and Dom!

-Thank you.

-Thank you.

0:00:550:00:59

-CHEERING

-Splendid.

0:00:590:01:02

OK, we know you best as children's TV presenters. How will you draw on that experience?

0:01:030:01:09

If we're not doing very well, I'll whack him in the face with a pie.

0:01:090:01:13

There is always that. What are you like working as a team? Are you going to be good? Or buckle?

0:01:130:01:19

-We're usually a bit competitive, but we can't be.

-Generally, as a team, 15 years working together,

0:01:190:01:26

we should be all right. But in a lot of the rounds we can't work together.

0:01:260:01:31

-You can't.

-Telepathy.

-When you're in a double act,

0:01:310:01:36

-you do think what the other person's thinking. Hopefully, that'll work.

-I do hope so. Very best of luck.

0:01:360:01:43

It's brilliant having you. Next, it's Charlie and Susanna!

0:01:430:01:48

APPLAUSE

0:01:480:01:50

Now, then, Charlie and Susanna. We know you from BBC Breakfast.

0:01:550:02:00

I need hardly remind you that the last BBC Breakfast people we had on

0:02:000:02:05

left here

0:02:050:02:07

-triumphant.

-If only we'd known...

-They were great, Bill and Sian.

0:02:070:02:13

Not only did they win, they were charming, had the audience laughing.

0:02:130:02:17

LAUGHTER

0:02:170:02:19

-Oh, man, they were good. We all went out after.

-Yeah, they took us out.

-For drinks.

0:02:190:02:25

They flew us to Paris.

0:02:250:02:28

-How long have you worked together?

-About five years.

0:02:300:02:34

-And have you done things like this before?

-Not together, no.

0:02:340:02:39

But I totally trust Charlie. He knows a lot of things.

0:02:390:02:43

-What are Charlie's strong suits?

-He's done a lot of different jobs.

0:02:430:02:47

-I think you'll find things you didn't expect he would know.

-What's he done?

0:02:470:02:52

-You've been a doorman and a brickie and you used to clamp cars.

-I was a roofer for a while.

0:02:520:02:58

-There we go.

-Yeah?

-So I think there will be categories you might not expect.

-Absolutely.

0:02:580:03:04

-What about Susanna?

-Susanna is very calm under pressure and extremely knowledgeable

0:03:040:03:10

and I'm entirely relying on her.

0:03:100:03:13

Good. It's all going to go well, then.

0:03:150:03:18

Very, very best of luck to you. Great to have you on the show.

0:03:180:03:22

Next we welcome Russell and Dawn!

0:03:220:03:25

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:03:250:03:27

-How long have you two known each other?

-Years!

-Only about a year. We worked together and got on.

0:03:320:03:38

So we thought we'd do this together.

0:03:380:03:40

-Where did you first meet?

-In Australia.

0:03:400:03:44

I was a guest on a panel of I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here Now

0:03:440:03:48

and Russell does a hilarious sketch.

0:03:480:03:51

I have to do stand-up about the show every night to an audience of three people.

0:03:510:03:59

Then Dawn was giving her opinions and we got on.

0:03:590:04:03

Fantastic. Anything you'd hate to see come up, Dawn?

0:04:030:04:07

Anything that requires a shred of intellect.

0:04:070:04:10

Or something in which I think I'm an expert, but turn out to be an idiot.

0:04:100:04:16

-And then get humiliated. That would be horrible.

-Very good.

0:04:160:04:21

-Very best of luck to the pair of you. And finally we have got Vanessa and Ben!

-Hello!

0:04:210:04:28

APPLAUSE

0:04:280:04:30

-What are your strong suits, Vanessa?

-Reclining on a chaise longue while Ben peels me a grape

0:04:300:04:37

is the thing I really excel at. Everything else, I'm not much cop.

0:04:370:04:41

Talking I'm good at.

0:04:410:04:44

-Ben, what areas will you look after?

-Music I'd love to see come up.

0:04:440:04:49

-I love a bit of music.

-Because you're a lead singer.

-#

-Hey, what's wrong with you?

-#

0:04:490:04:55

-I had to do that.

-Not bad at all.

-Marvellous.

0:04:550:04:59

Of course, Ben is responsible for the greatest album title in the history of recorded music.

0:04:590:05:06

-Ah!

-He was in Phats and Small. Do you know what their first album was called?

0:05:060:05:12

-Now Phats What I Small Music.

-LAUGHTER

0:05:120:05:15

That's genius, right? Come on.

0:05:150:05:18

-I'm still laughing about it today.

-APPLAUSE

0:05:180:05:22

You're a couple on and off screen. What will you be like as a team?

0:05:240:05:29

We're going to be devoted and charming, gently nibbling one another's earlobes, billing, cooing.

0:05:290:05:37

-Just like we normally do.

-Yeah. Kissing.

-The occasional snog.

0:05:370:05:42

-And you're good under pressure?

-Under pressure, we rev it up! LAUGHTER

0:05:420:05:48

Well, welcome to you. We look forward to discovering all your hidden knowledge.

0:05:480:05:53

There's only one person left to introduce. He is my Pointless friend. He is Richard.

0:05:530:06:00

Hello.

0:06:000:06:01

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:06:010:06:03

-Wow.

-Hello there.

-Wow.

-I know, it's exciting.

0:06:070:06:12

-Once again I am the 10th most famous person in a room.

-LAUGHTER

0:06:120:06:17

It should be a very good show. We've got some very clever people.

0:06:170:06:22

I'd also like to welcome Dick and Dom.

0:06:220:06:26

It should be a cracker. The first round should suit most of you.

0:06:260:06:31

-It should fit into the skill set of most of these teams.

-Very good. Thanks.

0:06:310:06:36

We put all our questions to 100 people, but this is Pointless. We want answers they didn't get.

0:06:360:06:43

To stay in the game, our celebrities need to score as few points as they can.

0:06:430:06:49

Everyone wants a pointless answer that nobody gave. When that happens, we'll add £250 to the jackpot.

0:06:490:06:55

As today's show is a celebrity special for nominated charities,

0:06:550:07:00

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

0:07:000:07:05

Right. Let's play Pointless.

0:07:100:07:12

Each of you must give me one answer and you cannot confer.

0:07:180:07:23

The team with the highest score at the end of the round will be eliminated.

0:07:230:07:28

An incorrect answer scores 100 points, so try to avoid those.

0:07:280:07:32

OK, our first category is... Words.

0:07:320:07:36

Words. Can you all decide in your pairs who's going to go first and who's going to go second?

0:07:360:07:43

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

0:07:430:07:48

Let's see the first question. We gave 100 people 100 seconds

0:07:480:07:52

to name as many words ending in "..ight" as they could.

0:07:520:07:57

Words ending in "..ight". Richard?

0:07:570:08:00

Any word in the Oxford English Dictionary that ends "..ight". No hyphenated words,

0:08:000:08:06

no proper nouns, people or places. There is a word "ight". We won't accept that.

0:08:060:08:12

Occasionally, Xander might ask you to spell your answer out. If he does, make sure it ends "..ight"!

0:08:120:08:19

OK, well, Dick and Dom, you all drew lots before the show and you get to go first.

0:08:190:08:26

-Words ending in "..ight". Dick?

-Can't be hard. We'll show you how intelligent we are!

0:08:260:08:32

-You know what? I don't doubt it!

-Might.

0:08:320:08:36

-OK.

-Yes!

-Might.

-M-I-G-H-T.

0:08:370:08:42

OK, lovely. You're hoping to score as few points as possible.

0:08:420:08:46

Let's see if "might" is a correct answer and, if it is, how many people said it, Dick.

0:08:460:08:52

It's good, it's right.

0:08:520:08:54

-66!

-Oh!

0:08:540:08:56

-It's a start.

-It's all right.

0:08:560:08:59

66.

0:08:590:09:00

-Richard, "might".

-It's a correct answer, so a good way to start the round.

0:09:010:09:07

-It can mean power, perhaps. It's 66 points to you.

-Thanks(!)

0:09:070:09:12

-Now then, Susanna.

-OK, I was going to try and be clever, but that's always a mistake.

0:09:120:09:19

-I'm going to go for "fright".

-Fright. Let's see if it's right and how many people said it. Fright.

0:09:190:09:25

It is right.

0:09:250:09:27

-There we are! 25. It was a great answer.

-APPLAUSE

0:09:310:09:37

-Fright, Richard.

-Yes, absolutely. Pretty low score,

0:09:380:09:42

but I would point out there are over 100 pointless answers on this list.

0:09:420:09:48

Also, I'm disqualifying "right" because Alexander keeps saying it.

0:09:480:09:52

LAUGHTER

0:09:520:09:54

-Dawn.

-I might try to be clever.

0:09:540:09:57

-Highlight?

-You see, that's brilliant.

0:09:590:10:01

You're hoping to score as few as possible. "Highlight".

0:10:010:10:05

Is that right and how many people said it?

0:10:050:10:09

-Three!

-Yes!

0:10:160:10:18

That's how you do it. Three points for "highlight".

0:10:180:10:21

Yeah, well played, Dawn. Highlight - to bring into prominence or to bleach parts of your hair.

0:10:230:10:30

-Very good answer.

-Now, Vanessa. Let's have the most obscure word that you can summon.

0:10:300:10:37

Well, I want you to picture a medieval knight upon his white charger. So K-N-I-G-H-T.

0:10:370:10:44

K-N-I-G-H-T. Knight, says Vanessa. Let's see if that's right and how many people said it.

0:10:440:10:50

Of course it's right.

0:10:500:10:53

Eleven!

0:10:570:10:59

Eleven for knight.

0:11:010:11:03

-APPLAUSE

-Richard?

0:11:030:11:05

Yeah, very well played, Vanessa. No incorrect answers. That's nice.

0:11:050:11:10

Thanks very much, Richard. We're halfway through the round. Let's look at the scores.

0:11:100:11:16

Dawn and Russell, fantastic. Three.

0:11:160:11:19

Then we go up to 11 for Vanessa and Ben.

0:11:190:11:22

Then 25, Susanna and Charlie. Then up quite a long way to 66 for Dick and Dom.

0:11:220:11:28

-Now then, Dom...

-Yes.

-You've got to find a fantastic word ending in "..ight".

0:11:280:11:35

Otherwise, as things stand, we will be saying goodbye to you.

0:11:350:11:38

OK, we're going to come back down the line. Could the second players take their places at the podium?

0:11:380:11:45

OK, remember, we're looking for words that end in "..ight".

0:11:460:11:51

Ben, the high scorers on 66 or Dom and Dick. Sounds wrong, that way round.

0:11:510:11:57

-If you can score 54 or less, you are definitely through to the next round.

-Right. Er...

0:11:570:12:03

I'm going to go for "eight".

0:12:050:12:08

-Eight!

-Ohhh!

0:12:080:12:10

Oh, ho, ho. Eight! How many people had to just go, "Hang on! Ohh!"?

0:12:100:12:16

OK, there is your red line.

0:12:170:12:19

If you get below that, Ben, you are through to the next round.

0:12:190:12:24

-Fingers crossed.

-Eight. Great answer. Let's see if it's right and how many people said it.

0:12:240:12:30

It's right, of course. And you are through - look!

0:12:320:12:36

-Very well done. 13.

-Wow, well done!

0:12:370:12:41

Takes your total up to 24.

0:12:410:12:43

Yeah, very well played, Ben. Eight's 13 bringing 11 up to 24.

0:12:450:12:49

LAUGHTER

0:12:490:12:52

-Russell.

-Em... I'm going to go with "slight".

0:12:520:12:57

Slight. How are you spelling "slight"?

0:12:570:13:01

-With an "..ight" at the end!

-LAUGHTER

0:13:010:13:05

What are you... What are you putting before?

0:13:050:13:09

-Is this a trick question?

-No!

0:13:090:13:11

S and... Oh, yes. I'm still going to play it safe.

0:13:110:13:16

-S-L.

-OK.

0:13:160:13:18

Slight. S-L-I-G-H-T. There is your red line. Below it to go through.

0:13:180:13:23

Is it right? How many people said it?

0:13:230:13:27

-Yep, he's done it.

-Good.

0:13:290:13:32

23! Takes you to 26. You're through.

0:13:340:13:38

-Very well played, Russell. Great team.

-Charlie, you're on 25. Dick and Dom are still on 66.

0:13:400:13:47

If you can score 40 or less, you go through. Words ending in "..ight".

0:13:470:13:53

I'm going to go for...

0:13:530:13:55

-"uptight".

-Ohh!

0:13:550:13:58

-Gasps from everyone. Vanessa...

-I'm not sure that's a word!

0:13:590:14:03

Steward's inquiry from over there.

0:14:030:14:07

Uptight. There's your red line. Below that and you're through.

0:14:070:14:12

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

0:14:120:14:16

It IS right.

0:14:160:14:18

Yup, you've done it!

0:14:200:14:22

Oh, very well done, Charlie! That scores you one.

0:14:230:14:27

It takes your total to 26. The lowest score of the pass, indeed of the round.

0:14:270:14:33

-Richard.

-Well played, Charlie. Look how close those scores are.

0:14:330:14:37

-On which note, Dick and Dom...

-LAUGHTER

0:14:370:14:40

-We're going home, aren't we?

-Oh, Dick and Dom, the writing is on the wall.

0:14:400:14:46

-Yes.

-You are going to be leaving.

-Do I have one more chance to humiliate us?

0:14:460:14:51

-No, you have a chance to leave a beautiful legacy in the shape of £250 in the jackpot.

-I prefer this.

0:14:510:14:58

-What about that?

-OK. So I've got a word that ends in "..ight" when you verbally pronounce it

0:14:580:15:04

-and I think it's a belter. But it might not be cos it's got to be spelt right.

-Get on with it!

0:15:040:15:11

Satellite? LAUGHTER

0:15:110:15:13

All right, now look... That's not the one I'm coming up with.

0:15:130:15:18

I was going to... Cos I know it's spelt I-T-E.

0:15:180:15:23

So I thought, "Let's play safe and just stick with flight".

0:15:230:15:27

Right, OK. Let's see if that's right and how many said it.

0:15:270:15:31

-29.

-It wasn't bad.

0:15:370:15:40

-It's not bad at all.

-Hey...

-Not bad at all, Dom.

0:15:400:15:44

And it's a darn sight better than satellite. What a stupid idea! Stupid!

0:15:440:15:50

That takes your total up to 95.

0:15:500:15:52

Oh, yes, look at that!

0:15:520:15:55

It's better than "might" as well. That's the main thing, isn't it?

0:15:550:16:00

-In the battle of Dick versus Dom, you've come out on top.

-Yeah.

0:16:000:16:04

What a battle(!) LAUGHTER

0:16:040:16:07

-So, Richard...

-The reason, Russell, we asked you to spell slight is there is sleight of hand,

0:16:070:16:15

which would have scored only one point. And, Dawn,

0:16:150:16:18

lowlight would have been pointless. Let's look at some pointless ones.

0:16:180:16:23

Bantamweight - a boxing weight. Wainwright, candlelight.

0:16:230:16:27

All of these are pointless answers.

0:16:270:16:29

Sennight - an old word for a week. Microlight, birthright also a pointless answer.

0:16:290:16:36

Catfight - doesn't have a hyphen.

0:16:360:16:39

Skintight and 'sright, as in,

0:16:390:16:43

-"Yeah, 'sright." I'm guessing!

-LAUGHTER

0:16:430:16:46

Very well done if you got those at home.

0:16:460:16:50

Richard, thank you very much. So the losing pair is Dick and Dom.

0:16:500:16:55

-Bye-bye.

-Bye!

-It had to be someone.

0:16:550:16:58

-You'll miss us.

-I thought you said my missus!

0:16:580:17:02

Yeah? Your mum!

0:17:030:17:06

LAUGHTER

0:17:060:17:07

But, em... Yeah, we will miss you.

0:17:070:17:12

We've hosted game shows before and when the contestants come on, you think, "This is really simple!"

0:17:120:17:18

They say the same thing. When you're in the spotlight, you go blank.

0:17:180:17:23

Completely blank, yeah.

0:17:230:17:25

I'm afraid we have to say goodbye. Thank you very much for playing. Dick and Dom!

0:17:250:17:31

Thank you!

0:17:310:17:33

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

0:17:350:17:40

There's only room for two pairs in our head-to-head so one team will be leaving us after this round.

0:17:440:17:52

Our category for Round Two is...Musicals.

0:17:520:17:55

Can you all decide who is going to go first and second? Whoever is first, step up to the podium.

0:17:550:18:01

OK, so our Round Two question concerns..."jukebox" musicals. Richard?

0:18:050:18:12

One of those musicals based largely or wholly on the works of one particular act.

0:18:120:18:18

We'll show you six musicals. We asked 100 people which band or artist is that musical based on?

0:18:180:18:25

A nice obscure answer scores fewer points. An incorrect answer scores 100 points.

0:18:250:18:31

-12 musicals in all, 12 bands or artists. Very best of luck.

-Wow. Jukebox musicals.

0:18:310:18:38

We've all learned something. OK, we want the names of the acts featured in these jukebox musicals.

0:18:380:18:45

Here's our first list of six.

0:18:450:18:48

HE READS LIST

0:18:480:18:50

I'll read those all one more time.

0:18:550:18:57

Everyone's looking really worried. Now then, Susanna...

0:19:030:19:08

There's a couple I just don't know.

0:19:080:19:11

-I'm going to go for Jersey Boys and The Four Seasons.

-The Four Seasons.

0:19:110:19:17

-Yes.

-OK. Jersey Boys, The Four Seasons. Let's see if that's right and how many people said it.

0:19:170:19:24

It is right.

0:19:250:19:27

-Very well done. 16!

-Whoo!

0:19:320:19:34

-APPLAUSE

-Well done. It's a great answer.

0:19:340:19:37

-16. Lovely low score. Richard?

-Yeah. Won four Tony awards and an Olivier for Best Musical.

0:19:370:19:44

-Now then, Russell. What does that board look like to you?

-Oh, I just...

0:19:440:19:50

I work in the theatre on a daily basis, but I don't get on with musicals and I avoid them.

0:19:500:19:56

I avoid reading about them or going to see them. I don't have a clue.

0:19:560:20:01

All I can do is intuit from the songs back to an artist.

0:20:010:20:06

So I am going to guess that Good Vibrations is the Beach Boys.

0:20:060:20:11

Whether it's a real musical, who knows?

0:20:110:20:15

-God only knows.

-LAUGHTER

0:20:150:20:18

Let's see if it is and how many people said the Beach Boys.

0:20:180:20:23

Yes, it is! Very well done.

0:20:230:20:25

-66.

-We're in trouble. That means you've got to...

-66.

0:20:250:20:31

-That's a lot better than 100.

-Yes.

-Well intuited. Richard?

0:20:310:20:35

A big score, but a good answer. Ran for 94 performances on Broadway.

0:20:350:20:39

-Is that a good run?

-It's not.

-No.

0:20:390:20:43

We are looking for the acts featured in these musicals. Now, Vanessa, you go last

0:20:430:20:49

-so you can talk us through the board and fill in any gaps you like.

-The top one's ABBA, obviously.

0:20:490:20:55

Then I'm assuming All Shook Up is Elvis Presley, although I've never heard of it.

0:20:550:21:01

I've never heard of this as a musical but I'm going to say Ring of Fire is about Johnny Cash.

0:21:010:21:08

Ring of Fire, Johnny Cash. Let's see if that's right and how many people knew that answer.

0:21:080:21:14

It is right.

0:21:140:21:16

38.

0:21:200:21:21

APPLAUSE

0:21:220:21:24

-Horrible. What's the bottom one?

-38. Well, I dread to think.

0:21:260:21:31

-Richard?

-We'll find out soon enough. Johnny Cash - that only ran for 57 performances, that musical.

0:21:310:21:39

But it's rather good. Mamma Mia obviously was ABBA, but would have scored 95 points.

0:21:390:21:45

All Shook Up was Elvis and would have scored you 68.

0:21:450:21:51

All The Fun of The Fair, well done if you got it at home.

0:21:510:21:55

-It was just eight points. Any idea?

-David Essex?

0:21:550:21:59

-How did you know that?

-Is it really?! That's hilarious!

0:21:590:22:03

-APPLAUSE

-How did you get that?

-It was on that theatre down...

0:22:030:22:11

Charing Cross Road and it had a picture of him with a handkerchief tied round his neck.

0:22:110:22:18

Very good. We're halfway through. Let's look at the scores.

0:22:180:22:23

Fabulous score from Susanna. 16, look at that. Very strong.

0:22:230:22:27

Then up to 38 for Vanessa and Ben

0:22:270:22:30

and 66 for Russell and Dawn. That was an expensive choice.

0:22:300:22:35

So, Dawn, you'll have to hope it is a really good board for you and you find a low-scoring answer.

0:22:350:22:42

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

0:22:420:22:46

OK, we'll put six more musicals on the board. Here they come.

0:22:500:22:54

HE READS LIST

0:22:540:22:57

I'll read those one more time.

0:23:010:23:03

You are looking for the acts around whose repertoire these are based.

0:23:080:23:13

You're trying to find the one the fewest people knew. So, Ben...

0:23:130:23:17

What are you thinking? What does that board look like to you?

0:23:170:23:22

I can guess... I'm just looking at song titles, really.

0:23:220:23:26

I'm stuck between Never Forget and Our House.

0:23:260:23:30

Our House, Madness.

0:23:300:23:32

Here's your red line coming in. If you get down below that red line, you are in the head-to-head.

0:23:320:23:38

Our House, Madness said Ben. Let's see if it's right and how many people said Madness.

0:23:380:23:45

It is right.

0:23:450:23:47

48.

0:23:500:23:52

48 takes your total up to 86.

0:23:540:23:56

-Richard?

-Yeah, won the Oliver for Best Musical in 2003.

0:23:560:24:01

So we are looking for the acts whose music features in these jukebox musicals.

0:24:010:24:07

So, Dawn, the high scorers are now Ben and Vanessa on 86.

0:24:070:24:11

You're on 66. If you can score 19 or less, you are through to the head-to-head. What are you thinking?

0:24:110:24:19

I'm thinking that I feel horribly ashamed of myself!

0:24:190:24:23

-Because you know some of these?

-I was going to say Madness.

0:24:230:24:27

The only other one I know on that board is the big one.

0:24:270:24:32

So I've just got to say it. Sorry, Russell.

0:24:320:24:35

We Will Rock You, Queen.

0:24:350:24:38

We Will Rock You, Queen.

0:24:390:24:41

OK, well, let's see. Let's see...

0:24:410:24:45

There's your red line, Dawn.

0:24:450:24:48

-Try not to laugh as we're doomed!

-LAUGHTER

0:24:480:24:52

There is your red line. If you get below that - maybe they forgot it! - then you are through.

0:24:520:24:59

Oh, no...

0:24:590:25:01

We Will Rock You, Queen. Is it right and how many people said it?

0:25:010:25:05

74.

0:25:070:25:09

74 is quite high, I'm afraid. That takes you up to 140.

0:25:090:25:14

-Bad luck.

-Sorry, Dawn. Right answer, but a big score. Opened in 2002 and still running.

0:25:170:25:23

-Have you seen it?

-No.

0:25:230:25:25

-I've had that pleasure. Anyone else?

-I've seen it.

0:25:250:25:30

-Two hours of our lives we'll never get back.

-Well now...

0:25:300:25:34

Charlie, here's the good news.

0:25:340:25:37

Even if you score 100 points, you will not overtake Dawn and Russell's high score of 140.

0:25:370:25:44

-Knowing that, why not see if you can find the most obscure answer?

-I have a hunch, no more than that,

0:25:440:25:52

because I've got a song in my brain. Movin' Out might be Billy Joel.

0:25:520:25:56

-Ooh.

-And so... I think he has got a song called Movin' Out.

0:25:560:26:01

And he's got a lot of songs in his repertoire. So why not say there's a musical called Movin' Out,

0:26:010:26:08

-that I've never heard of, by Billy Joel.

-Brilliant reasoning. Let's see if it's right.

0:26:080:26:14

Is that right and how many people said it? No red line. You're through, come what may.

0:26:140:26:20

You're right!

0:26:200:26:22

You're right, Charlie.

0:26:220:26:24

-Oh! Fantastic answer!

-Unbelievable!

0:26:270:26:31

A score of two takes you up to 18! Very well done.

0:26:310:26:36

Great answer. Best answer on either board. Three years on Broadway.

0:26:360:26:41

Let's look at the rest of the board.

0:26:410:26:44

-Saturday Night Fever is the Bee Gees and would have scored you 57. Tonight's The Night.

-Rod Stewart?

0:26:440:26:50

-Absolutely. 21. Dawn, were you tempted by Never Forget?

-I actually was not, no.

0:26:500:26:56

-It was Take That.

-I'm not a fan!

-Ah, good.

-Controversial.

0:26:560:27:01

So you won't feel bad you got it wrong. It would have scored 11 and seen you through.

0:27:010:27:07

Well done if you said Movin' Out.

0:27:070:27:10

Thanks, Richard. So the losing celebrity pair is Russell and Dawn!

0:27:100:27:15

-I'm sorry. We served you a terrible category there.

-It's your fault.

0:27:150:27:20

-To be fair, it's my fault.

-OK, well...

0:27:200:27:24

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

0:27:240:27:26

But I'm really sorry.

0:27:260:27:28

It's something you either love and cherish or particularly detest.

0:27:280:27:33

I think we know which one it was for you two.

0:27:330:27:37

-So, in many ways, well done.

-LAUGHTER

0:27:370:27:41

-You have been fantastic contestants. Thank you so much for playing.

-Good luck, guys.

0:27:410:27:47

For the remaining two pairs things get even more exciting as we enter the head-to-head!

0:27:480:27:53

Very well done, Charlie and Susanna, Vanessa and Ben.

0:27:590:28:04

Only one celebrity pair can make it through to the final and play for the jackpot, which stands at £2,500.

0:28:040:28:11

APPLAUSE

0:28:110:28:13

Here's how the head-to-head works. Each pair just gives me one answer and you're now allowed to confer.

0:28:150:28:22

You need an answer that scores less than the other pair.

0:28:220:28:25

The first pair to win two questions will play for today's jackpot.

0:28:250:28:30

Let's play Pointless.

0:28:300:28:33

OK, here is your first question.

0:28:380:28:41

We gave 100 people 100 seconds to name as many royal wedding venues since 1900 as they could. Richard?

0:28:410:28:48

We're looking for any venue at which any royal has married

0:28:480:28:52

from 1900 all the way through to May, 2011.

0:28:520:28:56

OK, thank you very much indeed. Charlie and Susanna, you go first.

0:28:560:29:01

OK? We've reached a consensus.

0:29:030:29:06

What's it going to be?

0:29:060:29:08

-We're going to go for Windsor Castle.

-Windsor Castle is your answer.

0:29:080:29:12

-Vanessa and Ben?

-Right. Em...

-Shall we go for that?

-Yeah.

-Yes.

0:29:120:29:18

-Do you think so? OK, you go.

-I hope so.

0:29:180:29:22

-It is a venue and a royal couple did get married there.

-Yes.

0:29:220:29:27

We would like to go for the registry office in Windsor high street -

0:29:270:29:33

I can't give you the exact number - at which Prince Charles married Camilla Parker Bowles.

0:29:330:29:38

-Windsor registry office?

-Yes.

-We have Windsor Castle and Windsor registry office.

0:29:380:29:45

In the order they've been given, let's see if Windsor Castle is right and how many people said it.

0:29:450:29:52

It's right.

0:29:520:29:54

It's good - 17!

0:29:580:30:00

APPLAUSE

0:30:030:30:05

17. Vanessa and Ben have gone for Windsor registry office.

0:30:050:30:09

Let's see how many people said Windsor registry office. It's right!

0:30:090:30:14

Yes, they've done it! Eight!

0:30:190:30:21

APPLAUSE

0:30:210:30:23

Windsor registry office on eight pips Windsor Castle on 17.

0:30:260:30:31

Vanessa and Ben are up one-nil. Richard?

0:30:310:30:34

Very good lateral thinking. And Sophie and Edward in Windsor Castle.

0:30:340:30:40

Let's take a look at all the answers. There's a pointless one.

0:30:400:30:44

The Duke of Kent and Katharine Worsley got married at York Minster. That was a pointless answer.

0:30:440:30:50

Crathie Church was the Princess Royal. The Duke of Gloucester

0:30:500:30:56

got married in Buckingham Palace. It would have scored seven.

0:30:560:31:00

There's the Guildhall, Windsor, where the registry office is.

0:31:000:31:04

Windsor Castle, 17. St Paul's, 39 - Charles and Di.

0:31:040:31:08

And there's been ten marriages at Westminster Abbey including William and Kate.

0:31:080:31:13

-Well done if you got the pointless answer.

-Here's your second question.

0:31:130:31:17

Charlie and Susanna, you need to win this to stay in the game. Here it comes.

0:31:170:31:24

We gave 100 people 100 seconds to name as many England cricketers

0:31:240:31:28

who have made 100 or more Test appearances as they could.

0:31:280:31:32

That's not one-day internationals. It's Test appearances

0:31:320:31:36

up to May, 2011, please.

0:31:360:31:38

This time, Vanessa and Ben go first.

0:31:380:31:41

-Mike Gatting.

-Mike Gatting, OK, say Vanessa and Ben.

0:31:450:31:49

-Charlie and Susanna?

-We're struggling.

0:31:490:31:53

-Neither of us know about cricket.

-At home I have the biggest cricket fan in my family

0:31:530:31:59

who is watching now going, "Come on! Don't let me down!"

0:31:590:32:03

-And we're about to crash and burn.

-I think we'll go - and hopefully it fits within the criterion -

0:32:030:32:10

-we'll go old and we're going to say...

-Go on.

-WG Grace.

0:32:100:32:15

WG Grace. We have Mike Gatting and WG Grace.

0:32:150:32:19

Vanessa and Ben said Mike Gatting. Let's see if that's right and how many people said it.

0:32:190:32:25

-Oh, dear.

-An incorrect answer,

0:32:270:32:30

which means, Charlie and Susanna, WG Grace merely has to be correct for you to win this point.

0:32:300:32:37

Is it right and how many people said it?

0:32:370:32:41

Oh! Well, there we are!

0:32:410:32:44

Both incorrect, which means Vanessa and Ben are still up one-nil.

0:32:440:32:49

-Richard?

-Both very good answers. WG Grace was in the years before they played many tests.

0:32:490:32:54

And Gatting never quite reached his hundred. There's only eight.

0:32:540:32:58

There's a pointless answer.

0:32:580:33:01

Graham Thorpe, pointless answer. Alec Stewart would have scored one, David Gower six, Colin Cowdrey 11.

0:33:010:33:07

Mike Atherton 11, Graham Gooch 13,

0:33:070:33:11

Geoff Boycott 23 and Ian Botham 59. Well done if you got all of those.

0:33:110:33:17

OK, here is your third question. Charlie and Susanna, you have to win this to stay in the game.

0:33:170:33:23

We gave 100 people 100 seconds to name as many Magic Roundabout characters as they could.

0:33:230:33:30

-Richard?

-We're looking for any of the eight original regular members of the Magic Roundabout.

0:33:300:33:36

Charlie and Susanna, you go first this time.

0:33:360:33:40

-We're going to go for Dylan.

-Dylan.

0:33:410:33:45

-Vanessa and Ben, you can now talk out loud if you like.

-Wait, wait.

0:33:450:33:50

-The cow.

-Ermintrude, was it?

-Was it Ermintrude?

0:33:500:33:55

I'm sure it was.

0:33:550:33:57

-Ermintrude, the cow.

-Ermintrude.

0:33:570:34:00

So we have Dylan and Ermintrude.

0:34:000:34:03

Charlie and Susanna, you have to win this. You have said Dylan.

0:34:030:34:07

Is it right and how many said it?

0:34:070:34:10

It's right.

0:34:100:34:12

37.

0:34:150:34:16

37. The question is if Dylan is more or less obscure than Ermintrude, the cow.

0:34:200:34:26

Ermintrude, say Vanessa and Ben. Is that right and how many people said Ermintrude?

0:34:260:34:32

It's right.

0:34:320:34:34

Will it go lower than Dylan?

0:34:340:34:37

Yes, it does! 31!

0:34:370:34:39

-- You were the one who got it! - He always does.

-31.

0:34:410:34:46

Now that means that Vanessa and Ben are through to the final, two-nil.

0:34:460:34:51

Richard?

0:34:510:34:53

Two good answers there. Eight in all. Two are killer answers.

0:34:530:34:58

Well done if you said either. Mr McHenry, the gardener, or Mr Rusty, the roundabout operator.

0:34:580:35:05

Brian, the snail, 28. Ermintrude, the cow, 31.

0:35:050:35:10

Dylan, the rabbit, 37. There's Florence 51, Dougal 63

0:35:100:35:14

and Zebedee tops the list on 68.

0:35:140:35:18

Thanks, Richard. So the losing pair is Charlie and Susanna!

0:35:180:35:22

-Ohh.

-Dear, oh, dear. Such a strong performance.

0:35:220:35:26

-What will Bill and Sian say?

-We never talk to them!

0:35:260:35:30

-LAUGHTER

-It's better that way.

0:35:300:35:34

I'm afraid we have to say goodbye, but thank you so much for playing. Brilliant contestants. Thank you.

0:35:340:35:41

But for Vanessa and Ben it's time for our Pointless final and the chance to win £2,500.

0:35:440:35:50

Congratulations, Vanessa and Ben. You have fought off the competition and won a coveted Pointless trophy.

0:35:550:36:01

You now have a chance to win our jackpot. At the end of today's show, it stands at £2,500.

0:36:070:36:14

The rules are very simple. All you have to do is find a pointless answer, that nobody thought of.

0:36:180:36:24

We haven't had any on the show today. Find one now and you go home with that money.

0:36:240:36:30

First, you choose a category from one of these three options.

0:36:300:36:34

Crime fiction is my least favourite kind of fiction. I love a novel, adore a poem, but not crime fiction.

0:36:400:36:47

-I don't think you do, either, do you?

-No, not at all.

0:36:470:36:51

-Boxing I'm not very good at.

-And neither am I!

0:36:510:36:55

-So...

-We'd better settle on Hollywood Legends because we know slightly more than the other two.

0:36:550:37:02

OK, Hollywood Legends it is. Let's find put the question.

0:37:020:37:06

We gave 100 people 100 seconds to name as many Paul Newman films as they could.

0:37:060:37:12

-Richard?

-We're looking for any feature film for which Paul Newman has received an acting credit.

0:37:120:37:19

No short films, TV films, documentaries or playing himself. Voiceover performances do count.

0:37:190:37:25

You have up to one minute to come up with three answers. All you need to win for your charity that £2,500

0:37:250:37:31

is for just one of those answers to be pointless. 60 seconds start now.

0:37:310:37:35

I can only think of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and The Italian Job. That's the only two I know.

0:37:350:37:43

The one I can think of that I hope is quite obscure was with his wife and it's called Mr and Mrs Smith.

0:37:430:37:50

-I've read the book.

-They made it with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, a new one.

0:37:500:37:57

-It's not that one.

-No, no. But people won't connect him with it.

-I hope it's Mr and Mrs Smith!

0:37:570:38:05

And not Mr and Mrs Jones or Brown!

0:38:050:38:07

I think it's Mr and Mrs Smith and it's about this couple who have been married for ages

0:38:070:38:13

-and the marriage is fraying at the edges.

-Do you know any others in case he's not in The Italian Job?

0:38:130:38:19

Just Butch Cassidy and he wasn't in Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, was he?

0:38:190:38:24

-I didn't see that.

-No, I don't think he was in that.

0:38:240:38:28

-What about The Italian Job?

-5 seconds left.

0:38:280:38:32

-Oh, lawks. I'm hoping Mr and Mrs Smith will get us through.

-There is your minute gone.

0:38:320:38:39

We're looking for Paul Newman films. I now need three answers.

0:38:390:38:43

-Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Italian Job.

-The Italian Job.

0:38:430:38:49

-And Mr and Mrs Smith.

-Of those three, what's your best punt?

0:38:490:38:53

-I'm really hoping that Mr and Mrs Smith...

-We'll put that third.

0:38:530:38:58

-What's your least likely pointless answer?

-Butch Cassidy.

0:38:580:39:02

OK, let's put them up in that order. Here we go.

0:39:020:39:07

We're looking for Paul Newman films. This was your least confident pointless answer.

0:39:110:39:17

You only need one pointless answer to win that jackpot of £2,500 for your charity.

0:39:170:39:24

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

0:39:240:39:28

It's right.

0:39:280:39:30

But will it go down to zero?

0:39:300:39:32

If it does, your charities benefit to the tune of £2,500.

0:39:320:39:37

Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid finishes on 26.

0:39:380:39:42

APPLAUSE

0:39:420:39:44

Oi!

0:39:440:39:46

Not a pointless answer. You only have two more chances to win that jackpot of £2,500.

0:39:460:39:52

-Who are you giving your money to?

-If we win, we'll be giving it to Breast Cancer Care.

0:39:520:39:58

It's a fantastic charity about life with breast cancer and life after it.

0:39:580:40:03

-It's really positive and I really hope we win for that.

-Very good.

-APPLAUSE

0:40:030:40:09

Let's hope one of your remaining answers, maybe both of them, are pointless.

0:40:140:40:19

We're looking for Paul Newman films. Your next answer is The Italian Job.

0:40:190:40:25

Let's see if that's correct and how many people said The Italian Job. Good luck.

0:40:260:40:31

No!

0:40:330:40:34

Unfortunately, that's an incorrect answer, so not a pointless answer.

0:40:340:40:39

Everything now hinges on Mr and Mrs Smith. You're quite confident?

0:40:390:40:43

-I hope so.

-You've read the book.

-I've read the book, he stars in it with his wife.

0:40:430:40:49

They're an ageing couple. I just hope no one remembers it!

0:40:490:40:54

-I hope I'm the only person who saw it!

-And, as Ben says, everyone will be thinking of Brad and Angelina.

0:40:540:41:00

OK. Very, very best of luck. It'll be brilliant if you win this.

0:41:000:41:04

We're looking for Paul Newman films. This was the answer you had most faith in. Mr and Mrs Smith.

0:41:040:41:10

This is your last shot at that jackpot of £2,500. Is it right and how many people said it?

0:41:100:41:18

-Oh, no!

-What was it called, then? Mr and Mrs Jones?

0:41:200:41:24

-Oh, bad luck!

-Oh, no!

0:41:240:41:27

Oh, no! I'm sorry.

0:41:270:41:30

Oh, no, I'm so sorry!

0:41:300:41:32

-What was it called?

-Unfortunately, you didn't manage to find that crucial pointless answer.

0:41:320:41:38

We'll find out shortly what that was called. But you do, of course, get our Pointless trophy.

0:41:380:41:45

-But you didn't win the jackpot.

-Oh, dear. What is it?

0:41:450:41:49

Richard?

0:41:490:41:51

It was a 1990 film with Joanne Woodward called Mr and Mrs Bridge.

0:41:510:41:56

-Oh, damn!

-If you'd said that...

-Oh, we'd have won!

0:41:560:42:00

-..it was a pointless answer.

-Oh, so close and so far away!

0:42:000:42:04

You played so well throughout. Let's look at the pointless answers. A New Kind of Love from 1963,

0:42:040:42:10

Absence of Malice, Exodus was a pointless answer,

0:42:100:42:14

From The Terrace, Lady L with Sophia Loren

0:42:160:42:20

and there's Mr and Mrs Bridge. Paris Blues, The Prize and Alfred Hitchcock's Torn Curtain.

0:42:200:42:26

Donald Sutherland is in the remake of The Italian Job. He's the grizzled old guy in that.

0:42:260:42:33

-Oh, dear.

-Did you know many of those?

-No, none of them, really.

-I didn't know any, so, you know.

0:42:330:42:41

That's really tough. You did very well.

0:42:410:42:44

-We fought off the competition.

-You did, but we have to say goodbye to you now.

0:42:440:42:49

It's been brilliant having you on the show. Thank you so much for playing.

0:42:490:42:55

I'm so sorry. It was nearly there.

0:42:550:43:00

And a massive thank you to Dick and Dom, Charlie and Susanna and Russell and Dawn.

0:43:000:43:06

Very well done to all of them.

0:43:060:43:08

So nobody's won our jackpot, but we thank our celebrities for taking part in Pointless.

0:43:110:43:18

We'll donate £500 to each pair's charity.

0:43:180:43:21

-Meanwhile, it's goodbye from Richard.

-Goodbye.

-And from me.
