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

0:00:220:00:24

and a very warm welcome to this special edition of Pointless Celebrities,

0:00:240:00:28

the show where the aim of the game is to avoid the obvious answers

0:00:280:00:31

and find the obscure ones.

0:00:310:00:33

Let's meet today's Pointless Celebrities.

0:00:330:00:35

And couple number one.

0:00:390:00:41

My name is Bob Harris and I broadcast for BBC Radio 2

0:00:410:00:45

and I'm a massive fan of Squeeze.

0:00:450:00:47

I'm Chris Difford and I just happen to be in Squeeze.

0:00:480:00:52

APPLAUSE

0:00:520:00:54

Couple number two.

0:00:570:00:59

I'm Kerry Godliman and I'm an actor and a comedian.

0:00:590:01:02

I'm Miles Jupp and I'm also an actor and comedian.

0:01:020:01:05

APPLAUSE

0:01:050:01:07

Couple number three.

0:01:090:01:11

Hello, my name's Jenny Eclair.

0:01:110:01:13

And I am a writer and a performer

0:01:130:01:15

and I'm a massive fan of Squeeze.

0:01:150:01:17

LAUGHTER

0:01:170:01:19

I'm Linda Robson. I'm a Loose Woman and an actress.

0:01:190:01:22

APPLAUSE

0:01:220:01:24

And finally, couple number four.

0:01:270:01:29

I'm the lovely Debbie McGee,

0:01:290:01:31

and I love being squeezed.

0:01:310:01:33

And I'm Angelos Epithemiou and I am the CEO of BP.

0:01:340:01:38

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:01:380:01:42

Thank you all very much indeed. A very warm welcome to Pointless.

0:01:420:01:44

It's great to have you all here. We'll get to chat to each of you

0:01:440:01:47

throughout the show as it goes along,

0:01:470:01:48

so that just leaves one more person for me to introduce.

0:01:480:01:51

He's friends with all the A-listers.

0:01:510:01:53

Campbell, Stewart, McGowan...

0:01:530:01:55

Sorry, Alistairs. He's friends with all the Alistairs.

0:01:550:01:57

It's my Pointless friend, it's Richard.

0:01:570:01:59

Hiya. Hey, everybody. Good evening.

0:01:590:02:02

-Good evening to you.

-Good evening.

0:02:040:02:07

-Blimey, what a line-up.

-I know!

0:02:070:02:09

I mean, no offence to podium two, but how classy is podium one?

0:02:090:02:13

Goodness me!

0:02:130:02:15

-Bob and Chris, what an absolute treat, eh?

-Yeah.

0:02:150:02:17

That's amazing. Lovely to have you both.

0:02:170:02:19

And Bob's been on before, of course. Did rather well as well.

0:02:190:02:22

Now, talking of people who've been on before,

0:02:220:02:24

Linda and Jenny have both been on before.

0:02:240:02:25

-Now, they came on together...

-Yep.

-It wasn't our finest hour.

0:02:250:02:28

..did very badly. They've both since come on separately with other people

0:02:280:02:31

-and done much better.

-Yeah, she brings me down.

0:02:310:02:34

And then... And then, for some reason,

0:02:340:02:36

-they've decided to come back on together again.

-I know.

0:02:360:02:38

-A bit tactically weird.

-We like each other!

-Well, that's good.

0:02:380:02:41

I'm worried about Angelos on podium four because, you know,

0:02:410:02:43

-he's a loose cannon, so we put him in safe...

-Don't worry about me.

0:02:430:02:47

Don't worry about me, please. Just relax.

0:02:470:02:49

Everything's going to be fine, Richard.

0:02:490:02:51

-If I'm honest with you, I'm a little bit worried about you.

-OK.

0:02:510:02:55

What's top of your list of concerns?

0:02:550:02:58

-Your height.

-Oh, yeah, yeah, no, look, that's fair enough.

0:02:580:03:00

You're quite an imposing character. And I'm also worried a little bit

0:03:000:03:04

about what you're wearing behind that desk.

0:03:040:03:06

Hey, this sarong is no-one's business but mine.

0:03:060:03:10

It's like having two alpha males,

0:03:100:03:12

like, rutting horns together, isn't it?

0:03:120:03:14

But we've put Angelos in very, very capable hands

0:03:140:03:16

-with Debbie McGee there.

-Absolutely.

0:03:160:03:18

Debbie, we need you to take control a little bit on podium four, please.

0:03:180:03:20

But genuinely, I'm looking forward to this so much.

0:03:200:03:23

-It's going to be an absolute cracker.

-Thanks very much.

0:03:230:03:25

Now, as usual, all today's questions

0:03:250:03:26

have been put to 100 people before the show. Our contestants

0:03:260:03:29

are looking for those all-important pointless answers.

0:03:290:03:31

These are the answers that none of our 100 people gave.

0:03:310:03:34

Find one of those, and we will add £250 to the jackpot.

0:03:340:03:36

Now, as today's show is a celebrity special and each of our celebrities

0:03:360:03:39

is playing for a nominated charity,

0:03:390:03:41

we are going to start off with a jackpot of £2,500. There it is.

0:03:410:03:45

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

0:03:480:03:51

So, there's only one rule you have to remember and it is this -

0:03:550:03:57

the pair with the highest score at the end of each round

0:03:570:04:01

will be eliminated, so make sure your scores are nice and low.

0:04:010:04:04

Very, very best of luck to all four pairs.

0:04:040:04:06

Our first category this evening is...

0:04:060:04:09

Can you decide in your pairs who's going to go first,

0:04:120:04:14

who's going to go second?

0:04:140:04:16

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

0:04:160:04:18

OK, and the question concerns...

0:04:220:04:25

-Question Songs, Richard.

-Yeah, on each board,

0:04:290:04:31

we're going to show you the titles of seven songs,

0:04:310:04:33

each of which have a title which is in the form of a question,

0:04:330:04:35

but we've missed out a word from each of those titles.

0:04:350:04:37

Can you tell us what that word is, please?

0:04:370:04:39

There's going to be seven on the first board,

0:04:390:04:41

seven on the second board. 14 in all to have a go at at home.

0:04:410:04:43

-Very best of luck.

-Thanks very much indeed, Richard.

0:04:430:04:45

OK, so what are the missing words from these question song titles?

0:04:450:04:48

Our first board reads like this. We have got...

0:04:480:04:51

I'll read those all again.

0:05:060:05:07

Bob, welcome to Pointless.

0:05:220:05:24

Is it true, Bob, that you co-founded Time Out?

0:05:240:05:28

-It is true.

-It is?

-Yes, yes, in 1968.

0:05:280:05:31

It was an incredible thing because, you know,

0:05:310:05:34

London was so vibrant in those days

0:05:340:05:37

-and there was the emerging what was known as the counterculture.

-Yeah.

0:05:370:05:40

You know, the underground scene in London at that time.

0:05:400:05:43

And there were lots of new magazines and newspapers appearing,

0:05:430:05:48

and Tony Elliott, whose idea it was to found the magazine,

0:05:480:05:54

had in his mind the idea of doing a one-off guide for students

0:05:540:05:59

-and tourists to the underground scene in London.

-Yeah.

0:05:590:06:02

And we sold the first edition to the crowd

0:06:020:06:04

at the Sunbury Jazz Festival

0:06:040:06:06

and the first edition then funded the second one and it began to roll.

0:06:060:06:09

-And now, of course, it's all over the world.

-Absolutely wonderful.

0:06:090:06:12

Now, Bob, what about this...?

0:06:120:06:14

What about our board of missing words?

0:06:140:06:16

I can't imagine there's any you don't know there.

0:06:160:06:19

No, it's just the one, isn't it, that the least number

0:06:190:06:22

of people would have been likely to guess?

0:06:220:06:25

On that basis, I'm going to go for The Mock Turtles' title,

0:06:250:06:29

which is Can You Dig It?

0:06:290:06:31

Can You Dig It? The Mock Turtles. Let's see if that's right

0:06:310:06:34

and see how many of our 100 people went for dig.

0:06:340:06:36

It is Can You Dig It?

0:06:390:06:40

Down it goes to 25.

0:06:450:06:46

Great start to the round and the show.

0:06:460:06:48

25 for Can You Dig It?

0:06:480:06:49

Well played, Bob. Solid as a rock.

0:06:510:06:52

Yeah, Can You Dig It? The Mock Turtles.

0:06:520:06:54

Off a very good album, actually, Turtle Soup.

0:06:540:06:56

They were big for a while, weren't they, The Mock Turtles?

0:06:560:06:58

Steve Coogan's elder brother was the lead singer, Martin Coogan.

0:06:580:07:01

Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:07:010:07:03

-Kerry.

-Hello.

0:07:030:07:05

Listen, "The best comic timing on the Fringe."

0:07:050:07:09

That's the Sunday Times, that's what they have to say about you.

0:07:090:07:11

-Oh. That's nice.

-"The best comic timing on the Fringe."

0:07:110:07:14

What show was that?

0:07:140:07:16

That was a couple of years ago. That was a show called Wonder Woman.

0:07:160:07:19

-Was that the year I wasn't there?

-Yes!

0:07:190:07:22

That's why I got that title, because Jenny wasn't there.

0:07:220:07:24

What about that? Are you going up this year?

0:07:240:07:26

-I'm not going up this year, no.

-Do you generally do every year or..?

0:07:260:07:29

No, I'm every three years. That's what I like to do.

0:07:290:07:32

-That's nice. And then you can tour the show.

-Then you can tour.

0:07:320:07:35

-I'm doing a tour instead.

-That's very nice.

0:07:350:07:37

-And then meanwhile start writing your material for the...

-Exactly.

0:07:370:07:40

-It's an ongoing, fluid process.

-Good, lovely.

0:07:400:07:43

-Sort of rotational farming of comedy.

-Exactly, exactly.

0:07:430:07:47

Very good.

0:07:470:07:48

Now, Kerry, are you liking this round with the missing words?

0:07:480:07:51

Well, I was liking it until Bob chose The Mock Turtles.

0:07:510:07:54

Because everything else is something

0:07:540:07:56

either everyone will know or I don't know.

0:07:560:07:58

My second choice then might be...

0:07:580:08:01

..Who Let The Dogs Out?

0:08:010:08:03

That's the one you are going to go for, The Baha Men.

0:08:030:08:06

Who Let The Dogs Out? Let's see how many of our 100 people said dogs.

0:08:060:08:09

Well, it's right.

0:08:110:08:13

-Ooh, look at that.

-Oh...

-86.

0:08:130:08:14

It's very right, Kerry.

0:08:140:08:16

-86 for Who Let The Dogs Out?

-That is a...

0:08:170:08:20

That's a big scorer, Who Let The Dogs Out?

0:08:200:08:22

You know what the irony is?

0:08:220:08:23

-They never found out.

-LAUGHTER

0:08:230:08:26

Played all over the world. No-one, nobody grassed.

0:08:260:08:30

It was me, actually.

0:08:300:08:32

Oh, there we are. I knew it!

0:08:320:08:34

Thank you, Richard.

0:08:340:08:35

-Linda, welcome back.

-Yep. Thank you.

-Welcome back to Pointless.

0:08:350:08:39

-Now, Birds Of A Feather...

-Yep.

-It's been back.

-It has.

0:08:390:08:42

It's been back and it ran earlier this year.

0:08:420:08:44

Yeah, it's been back for three years now after a 15-year break.

0:08:440:08:47

And then when you're not doing that,

0:08:470:08:50

-you're doing your Loose Women.

-I am, yeah.

0:08:500:08:52

When you turn up, do you talk about what you're going to say?

0:08:520:08:55

-Yeah, we...

-Or is the idea...?

0:08:550:08:56

We get picked up at eight o'clock in the morning. Then we have a meeting.

0:08:560:08:59

Then two of us go off for make-up and the other two wait

0:08:590:09:01

and look through the notes. Then the other two go.

0:09:010:09:03

-Then we have another meeting before we go live on air.

-Yeah.

0:09:030:09:06

And then we finish at half past one.

0:09:060:09:07

We have a meeting to discuss what we've said

0:09:070:09:09

-that we shouldn't have said and...

-ALEXANDER LAUGHS

0:09:090:09:11

The lawyers come in and...

0:09:110:09:13

-So, yeah, it's a nice show to work on.

-A lot of meetings!

0:09:130:09:15

It's a great show, though, isn't it? You must love it.

0:09:150:09:17

-Yeah, I do love it.

-Now, Linda, what would you like to go for?

0:09:170:09:20

We've had a nice low score and quite a surprisingly high score.

0:09:200:09:22

Well, I wanted "dig" as well, The Mock Turtles,

0:09:220:09:25

but, I mean, the rest of them are all really, really well known.

0:09:250:09:28

I'm not sure if "What's My" is...

0:09:280:09:32

I don't know whether to go for that or...

0:09:320:09:34

See, all the others are so well known, aren't they?

0:09:340:09:37

I might go for Does Your Mother Know?

0:09:370:09:40

-Does Your Mother Know?

-Yeah.

-You're going to say Does Your Mother Know?

0:09:400:09:42

Says Linda. Let's see if that's right. Does Your Mother Know?

0:09:420:09:45

It's right.

0:09:480:09:49

-Oh, look at that, down it goes.

-Oh! Oh!

0:09:500:09:52

-46.

-Oh, there you go.

0:09:520:09:54

-There you go!

-That's good, well done.

0:09:540:09:55

46 for Does Your Mother Know?

0:09:570:10:00

They say that ABBA's flamboyant stage clothes and stage style

0:10:000:10:03

came because of the Swedish tax code which essentially said

0:10:030:10:07

that they could only claim for what they wore onstage

0:10:070:10:09

if it was so outrageous you wouldn't wear it in the street.

0:10:090:10:12

So that's the only way they could get free costumes.

0:10:120:10:15

-They couldn't wear any normal stuff.

-That's superb.

-Yeah, there you go.

0:10:150:10:18

Wow. Thank you, Richard.

0:10:180:10:20

-Debbie.

-Hello.

-Welcome to Pointless, Debbie.

-Thank you.

0:10:200:10:24

Now, an extraordinary career you have, Debbie. You started out,

0:10:240:10:27

-you were at the Royal Ballet School. Studied there.

-Yes.

0:10:270:10:29

-Then you joined the Iranian National Ballet.

-Yes.

0:10:290:10:33

Why did you go for the Iranian National Ballet?

0:10:330:10:35

Because they were paying five times more than the Royal Ballet!

0:10:350:10:39

-Wow.

-So I went for the money, yeah.

0:10:390:10:42

-So you were based in Tehran, how long for?

-Yeah.

0:10:420:10:44

Well, I planned to stay for three years,

0:10:440:10:46

-but if you've seen the movie Argo with Ben Affleck...

-Yep?

0:10:460:10:49

..that's what I went through, exactly. I was hidden in a house.

0:10:490:10:52

-Oh, really?

-I got stopped at the airport.

0:10:520:10:54

I chatted up one of the customs guys who stamped my passport

0:10:540:10:57

and I ran across the tarmac and escaped.

0:10:570:11:00

So this was pre-revolution or sort of just during...

0:11:000:11:03

-It was as the revolution was happening, yeah.

-Blimey.

0:11:030:11:06

But looking back over your career,

0:11:060:11:08

what would you say would be your highlight?

0:11:080:11:09

What's the thing that you look back with the most fondness?

0:11:090:11:12

-There's been loads.

-Yeah.

0:11:120:11:14

But probably meeting Paul,

0:11:140:11:16

because when I came back from Iran is when I needed a job,

0:11:160:11:20

so I auditioned as a dancer for a company that were putting on

0:11:200:11:24

lots of shows and they put me with the Paul Daniels Show.

0:11:240:11:27

I didn't know who he was or what he did and I hated magic!

0:11:270:11:31

Wow. And there he was.

0:11:310:11:33

I think a lot of us hated magic before Paul Daniels,

0:11:330:11:35

you know? He was... I mean, he was a great superstar.

0:11:350:11:37

But you have an awful lot to thank the Ayatollah Khomeini for.

0:11:370:11:40

Yeah, yeah, exactly.

0:11:400:11:41

So, no, I think the highlight was probably when the TV show,

0:11:410:11:45

The Paul Daniels Magic Show, won the Golden Rose of Montreux.

0:11:450:11:47

-I think that was probably the highlight.

-Fantastic.

-Yeah.

0:11:470:11:50

Now then, Debbie, from that highlight to this highlight.

0:11:500:11:54

What are you going to go for on this board?

0:11:540:11:56

I'll just go for something that's safe

0:11:560:11:58

and hope it keeps us in for the next bit.

0:11:580:12:02

It's which one to go for, really.

0:12:020:12:03

I think I might hope that you've asked 100 younger people

0:12:030:12:07

so they might not know so much about Tom Jones,

0:12:070:12:10

so I'll go What's New Pussycat?

0:12:100:12:12

Pussycat, says Debbie.

0:12:120:12:13

Let's see how many of our 100 people said What's New Pussycat?

0:12:130:12:16

It's...

0:12:180:12:20

-Oh...

-I didn't have time to say it was right.

0:12:200:12:22

It's right, though, it is. 96

0:12:220:12:24

is what it scores you. Wow. A few people did know that.

0:12:240:12:27

-Better than 100.

-Yes, much better.

0:12:270:12:29

-It is four better than 100, Debbie.

-Four better.

-Very well done.

0:12:290:12:32

Yeah, there's some very, very big scores on that board.

0:12:320:12:34

Got the Rod Stewart one...

0:12:340:12:36

Not quite as bad, but almost as much damage.

0:12:360:12:38

Da Ya Think I'm Sexy? would have scored you 93.

0:12:380:12:41

The Elton one, Are You Ready For Love? 69 points.

0:12:410:12:44

And Blink 182 is the best answer on the board.

0:12:440:12:46

-What's My...

-Age.

-What's My Age Again?

0:12:460:12:48

Would've scored you two points.

0:12:480:12:50

-It's a good song as well, What's My Age Again?

-It is good.

0:12:500:12:52

Thanks very much indeed.

0:12:520:12:53

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

0:12:530:12:56

25, the best score of the pass,

0:12:560:12:58

Bob, very well done. Bob and Chris, I think,

0:12:580:13:01

looking like dead certs for Round Two at this point.

0:13:010:13:03

Then up to 46, where we find Linda and Jenny.

0:13:030:13:05

Then we travel up to 86, where we find Kerry and Miles.

0:13:050:13:08

96, Debbie and Angelos.

0:13:080:13:11

So, yes, Angelos,

0:13:110:13:12

-you get the new board, so...

-Oh, good.

-Yeah.

0:13:120:13:14

-Make sure you find a nice low score on there.

-OK, mate, yeah.

0:13:140:13:17

-No pressure.

-Good luck with that.

0:13:170:13:18

We're going to come back down the line now.

0:13:180:13:20

Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:13:200:13:23

OK, let's put seven more song titles with missing words up

0:13:250:13:28

on the board, and here they come. We have got...

0:13:280:13:31

Let me read those all again.

0:13:490:13:51

-OK, Angelos.

-Yes.

-Welcome to Pointless.

0:14:050:14:08

-Thanks, mate, thank you.

-It's good to have you.

0:14:080:14:10

-How is everything, Angelos?

-Yeah, not bad, actually.

0:14:100:14:13

-How's business, all right?

-Business is very good at the moment, yes.

0:14:130:14:16

I don't actually run BP like I said.

0:14:160:14:19

I run a burger van.

0:14:190:14:21

Erm... And I park it outside all the football grounds

0:14:210:14:25

and all that sort of carry-on. I went over to Europe.

0:14:250:14:28

Erm... And I made a bit of money.

0:14:280:14:31

-Did you?

-Really?

-Yes, I did.

0:14:310:14:33

And I spent it on new clothes, thank you.

0:14:330:14:37

That's very good. Is there a sort of seasonal thing to the burger van?

0:14:370:14:40

Do you find that? Does that...?

0:14:400:14:42

Yeah, yeah, it is a seasonal thing, yeah.

0:14:420:14:45

It's autumn, winter,

0:14:450:14:47

summer and spring.

0:14:470:14:50

I work all them seasons.

0:14:500:14:52

-Very good.

-Thank you.

-Very good. Now, Angelos...

0:14:520:14:54

I'm pleased to be here, by the way.

0:14:540:14:56

This is my second-favourite game show on the telly.

0:14:560:15:00

It's great to have you here, Angelos.

0:15:020:15:04

-LAUGHTER

-What's your favourite, Angelos?

0:15:040:15:06

Oh, don't ask...

0:15:060:15:08

The football.

0:15:080:15:09

-Yeah.

-Angelos, you're on 96. You're the high-scorers at the moment.

0:15:110:15:15

-I know, mate.

-Not by much, though.

-No.

-There's not a lot in it.

0:15:150:15:18

A nice low score from you at this point will keep you in the game.

0:15:180:15:22

What would you like to go for?

0:15:220:15:24

I think I'll go...

0:15:240:15:26

..Where's Your Head At? Basement Jaxx.

0:15:260:15:29

Where's Your Head At? says Angelos.

0:15:290:15:30

No red line for you as you're the high-scorers.

0:15:300:15:32

Let's see how many of our 100 people said Where's Your Head At?

0:15:320:15:36

It's right.

0:15:390:15:40

-27.

-Not bad.

0:15:450:15:46

Very well done indeed, Angelos.

0:15:460:15:48

Taking your total up to 123.

0:15:480:15:49

Very much back in the game there.

0:15:490:15:51

Very well played. Top 10 hit from 2001.

0:15:510:15:54

Thanks very much, Richard.

0:15:540:15:55

Now, Jenny, welcome back to Pointless.

0:15:550:15:57

-Well, it's a pleasure to be here.

-Talk to me about Just A Minute.

0:15:570:16:01

Tactically, do you just talk, or do you think very carefully as you are talking?

0:16:010:16:07

-Both at the same time...

-Both.

-..if I possibly can, without falling off my chair.

0:16:070:16:11

It's quite hard. It's one of those jobs that I sort of hate and love with equal measure.

0:16:110:16:16

-Yes.

-But I'm a big fan of Nicholas Parsons.

0:16:160:16:19

-He is 123, you know, but he still sounds great on the radio.

-He does.

0:16:190:16:24

He absolutely does. Brilliant man.

0:16:240:16:28

Is it terrifying? It must be terrifying.

0:16:280:16:30

-Everything is terrifying.

-Is it a God-given thing, or can you work at it?

0:16:300:16:34

-Can you improve your Just A Minute?

-You can improve.

0:16:340:16:36

You've got to sort of go into a slight zone, and just keep going even if it's rubbish.

0:16:360:16:42

I've started doing it now, I don't like doing it.

0:16:420:16:44

Some people take a run at it and go... HE SPEAKS FAST GIBBERISH

0:16:440:16:47

I try all the tricks.

0:16:470:16:49

-I try going very fast sometimes, and then slow right down.

-Yeah.

0:16:490:16:54

Now, Jenny, you're on 46.

0:16:540:16:57

If you can score 76 or less, you are into the next round.

0:16:570:17:01

It's really tricky. May I just say that I danced on

0:17:010:17:05

the video to Do You Really Want To Hurt Me by Culture Club?

0:17:050:17:09

You've got to use that one now cos you've given it away.

0:17:090:17:11

Have I got to use that? Does it work like that?

0:17:110:17:13

-You just told them the word now!

-LAUGHTER

-Do you see what I've done?

0:17:130:17:16

You danced on the video? How come?

0:17:160:17:18

I used to make a living as a younger woman as a dancer on pop videos.

0:17:180:17:22

Well, I wouldn't have paid to see you.

0:17:220:17:24

LAUGHTER

0:17:240:17:27

-So, that's what you're now going for, I'm afraid.

-You've got to now!

0:17:270:17:30

-I've spoiled the game.

-It might be fine.

-It might not be.

0:17:300:17:33

Here's your red line, nice and high.

0:17:330:17:35

If you can get below that with hurt, Do You Really Want To Hurt Me?,

0:17:350:17:37

you are through to the next round. Let's see how many people said it.

0:17:370:17:41

It is hurt.

0:17:420:17:45

83 is what it scores. APPLAUSE

0:17:450:17:49

83 takes your total up to 129.

0:17:490:17:50

Great news for Angelos and Debbie behind you.

0:17:500:17:52

You could still be in the game.

0:17:520:17:55

Could be a lot worse than 83. And a number one in '82.

0:17:550:17:58

-There we are, thank you very much.

-That's nice, isn't it?

-That's very nice.

0:17:580:18:01

-Miles, welcome to Pointless.

-Thank you for having me.

0:18:010:18:04

Trying to work out if there's any section of the population

0:18:040:18:08

that doesn't know and love you, because Balamory, obviously.

0:18:080:18:13

And then of course I was in the Iranian Balamory as well.

0:18:130:18:16

Very well paid but ultimately quite terrifying.

0:18:160:18:19

Running across the tarmac in my pink kilt, being shot at by...

0:18:190:18:22

I think it was Ben Affleck, but...

0:18:220:18:24

The more discerning sitcom fan, Rev...

0:18:240:18:27

Featuring Alexander Armstrong.

0:18:270:18:30

In episode one, yes.

0:18:300:18:32

Mock The Week, obviously for a slightly cooler demographic.

0:18:320:18:35

Then you've got The News Quiz, which just picks up any loose balls.

0:18:350:18:39

I mean, there is no section of the demographic that you haven't

0:18:390:18:43

got in your pocket.

0:18:430:18:44

I don't know if that's the case but it's a very nice thing for you to say, certainly.

0:18:440:18:48

-And how is The News Quiz?

-It's absolutely fine.

0:18:480:18:51

We record on a Thursday.

0:18:510:18:52

At the moment the news happens so fast

0:18:520:18:54

obviously it would be irrelevant by Friday, but I'm quite good...

0:18:540:19:00

If this was a different sort of quiz, that would be my specialist subject -

0:19:000:19:03

-news that happens on a Thursday.

-LAUGHTER

0:19:030:19:05

Miles, what are the missing words from these song titles?

0:19:050:19:08

You have to aim for 42 or less.

0:19:080:19:09

I'm going to have to go for,

0:19:090:19:11

on the basis that people... They may not be at the forefront of people's

0:19:110:19:14

consciousness, the Bros song, When Will I Be Famous?

0:19:140:19:18

Famous, says Miles. Here is your red line.

0:19:180:19:21

If you can get below that red line with When Will I Be Famous?,

0:19:210:19:24

you are into Round Two.

0:19:240:19:25

How many of our 100 people said it, famous?

0:19:250:19:27

It's right.

0:19:310:19:32

-68.

-What a bitter disappointment.

0:19:340:19:37

68, Miles, takes your total up to 154.

0:19:370:19:39

Yeah, a number two hit, nearly 30 years ago now.

0:19:420:19:45

-No!

-Yeah.

0:19:450:19:47

Thank you, Richard. Chris, welcome to pointless.

0:19:470:19:50

Lovely to have you here.

0:19:500:19:51

Now, the story goes that when Squeeze started it was really

0:19:510:19:54

just you, you were advertising for people to come and join your band.

0:19:540:19:57

Yeah, I put an advert in a sweet shop window for a guitarist

0:19:570:20:01

to join a band. I didn't have a band, but...

0:20:010:20:04

And I didn't have any friends, and that's why I put the ad there.

0:20:040:20:07

And Glenn Tilbrook was the only person to answer the ad. So...

0:20:070:20:12

And then you found some others along the way.

0:20:120:20:14

And when did you come up with Squeeze?

0:20:140:20:17

Well, we were a very democratic band,

0:20:170:20:20

so we put lots of names in a hat,

0:20:200:20:22

and Squeeze was one of the names in the hat.

0:20:220:20:24

Jools Holland put a very rude word in a hat, which we never used.

0:20:240:20:29

LAUGHTER

0:20:290:20:30

Probably sensibly, really...

0:20:300:20:33

You run a songwriting workshop, or you are part of a songwriting workshop.

0:20:330:20:36

Yeah, I've been running songwriting workshops for 26 years now.

0:20:360:20:41

Bob has been to a couple of them.

0:20:410:20:42

-Not to write songs, but to be a gifted friend.

-Excellent.

0:20:420:20:47

Chris, you are through to the next round,

0:20:470:20:48

doesn't matter what you score at this point.

0:20:480:20:50

So, you can talk us through this board and fill in the blanks for us, if you felt like it.

0:20:500:20:55

-Or just give us an answer.

-I'm going to go for...

0:20:550:20:58

All the ones I wanted to go for have just gone, so...

0:20:580:21:01

-Is This The Way To Amarillo?

-Is This The Way To Amarillo?

0:21:030:21:06

No red line for you, you are already through.

0:21:060:21:08

Let's see how many of our 100 people said Way To Amarillo.

0:21:080:21:11

It's right. 91 is the score for that. Very high score.

0:21:140:21:19

116 is your total, but you're through.

0:21:190:21:23

Yes, only big answers up there on the board

0:21:230:21:25

apart from the two tougher ones.

0:21:250:21:26

That was a number 18 hit in 1972,

0:21:260:21:29

and then in 2005 it was number one for seven weeks.

0:21:290:21:31

Let's fill in this board.

0:21:320:21:34

There is another very obvious one, How Much Is That Doggie In The...

0:21:340:21:37

-Window.

-Window, yes. That would have scored you 96 points.

0:21:370:21:41

And now these two are the best two answers.

0:21:410:21:44

Do I Wanna Know? by Arctic Monkeys

0:21:440:21:47

would have scored you 4 points, and the best

0:21:470:21:49

answer on the board, our old friends from Busted with Who's...

0:21:490:21:53

-Who's David?

-Who's David? Would have scored you 1 point,

0:21:530:21:56

so, very well done if you said that.

0:21:560:21:57

Thanks very much indeed, Richard.

0:21:570:21:59

So, at the end of our first round,

0:21:590:22:00

the pair heading home with our high score of 154...

0:22:000:22:03

There is nothing about this I would change, it's been lovely.

0:22:030:22:06

LAUGHTER

0:22:060:22:08

Listen, come and play again, it's been lovely having you here.

0:22:080:22:11

-Thanks so much for playing.

-Thank you.

-Miles and Kerry.

0:22:110:22:14

APPLAUSE

0:22:140:22:15

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

0:22:190:22:22

We are down to three pairs,

0:22:230:22:25

and at the end of this round we will be down to two pairs.

0:22:250:22:28

But well done, that was a tough round.

0:22:280:22:30

-But Angelos...

-Yes?

-..very well done.

-Yeah.

0:22:300:22:33

Bob, lovely low scores, there. Best of luck to all three pairs for our next round.

0:22:330:22:37

Our category for Round Two this evening is Famous People.

0:22:370:22:41

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

0:22:430:22:46

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

0:22:460:22:49

OK, and our question concerns...

0:22:520:22:55

Jims and Jimmys, Richard.

0:23:000:23:02

We're going to show you a picture of 16 famous people

0:23:020:23:04

known by the name Jim or Jimmy.

0:23:040:23:06

Can you identify the most obscure of these, please?

0:23:060:23:09

OK, thanks very much.

0:23:090:23:10

We're going to put an image up that has all 16 people there.

0:23:100:23:13

We won't be changing it halfway through the round,

0:23:130:23:14

it will stay up for the entire round.

0:23:140:23:16

Let's see who is up on the board, shall we? We have got these people.

0:23:160:23:21

There we are.

0:23:240:23:25

16 Jims or Jimmys.

0:23:250:23:28

Bob, we will come to you first.

0:23:280:23:31

-Well, it is quite a mix, isn't it?

-It is.

0:23:310:23:35

-That's a drinks party, isn't it?

-Yes.

0:23:350:23:38

There's a few music people up there.

0:23:380:23:40

And I am going to choose one of them.

0:23:410:23:45

It's on the right-hand column, and it's the third face down.

0:23:470:23:51

-And that is the face of Jim Morrison.

-Jim Morrison, says Bob.

0:23:530:23:58

Let's see if that's right.

0:23:580:23:59

Let's see how many of our 100 people went for Jim Morrison.

0:23:590:24:02

It's right.

0:24:050:24:06

25 for Jim Morrison. Good start to the round. 25.

0:24:110:24:15

Well done, Bob.

0:24:170:24:18

Can I also commend you on the coolest given answer, I think, ever.

0:24:180:24:22

That was from start to finish beautiful, wasn't it?

0:24:220:24:25

-So polished.

-So polished.

0:24:250:24:27

Now, if everyone else can do the same. Jenny...

0:24:270:24:31

Probably not. OK...

0:24:310:24:33

Now, the trick here is not to give anybody's name away

0:24:350:24:38

-before I choose my person.

-Yes.

0:24:380:24:41

-I'm just going to say Jimmy Kimmel.

-Jimmy Kimmel, says Jenny.

0:24:420:24:46

Let's see how many of our 100 people said Jimmy Kimmel.

0:24:460:24:49

-Oh!

-Oh, I'm sorry.

0:24:530:24:56

-Who's the guy top right?

-We'll discover in...

0:24:560:25:00

-At the end.

-As soon as she did it she knew she had gone wrong.

0:25:000:25:02

I'm afraid it's not Jimmy Kimmel, though, that I can tell you.

0:25:020:25:05

It scores you 100 points, I'm sorry.

0:25:050:25:07

-I've done well! Oh, no, I haven't.

-You've done rubbish!

0:25:070:25:11

I'm so sorry.

0:25:110:25:13

I'll give all the correct answers at the end of the pass.

0:25:130:25:15

-Thank you very much indeed. Angelos.

-Yes.

-Angelos.

0:25:150:25:18

OK. I'm just going to come straight out with it.

0:25:180:25:21

Um...

0:25:210:25:23

I'm going to go for...

0:25:230:25:25

Yes.

0:25:270:25:30

Yes, it's very tricky, there is so many.

0:25:300:25:33

-Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.

-Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.

0:25:330:25:37

Let's see if that is right,

0:25:370:25:39

let's see how many of our 100 people said Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.

0:25:390:25:42

It is right.

0:25:440:25:45

Well, 100 was our high score, you passed that,

0:25:460:25:49

25 was our low score, and you passed that.

0:25:490:25:51

18 for Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.

0:25:510:25:52

APPLAUSE

0:25:520:25:54

-18, well done.

-Yes, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, second row down.

0:25:560:26:00

Born in Suriname and became manager of QPR.

0:26:000:26:04

Thanks very much indeed. Now, let's have a quick look at the scores.

0:26:040:26:06

We're halfway through the round. 18, the best score of the pass.

0:26:060:26:09

Very well done indeed, Angelos. Angelos and Debbie, I think there is

0:26:090:26:12

a place in the head-to-head for you, but we shall see.

0:26:120:26:16

Bob and Chris we find on 25, and then, yes,

0:26:160:26:19

we travel up to 100, where we find Jenny and Linda.

0:26:190:26:23

-So, Linda...

-Yes.

-Who knows what might happen,

0:26:230:26:25

-but a low score from you certainly isn't going to hurt.

-Yep.

0:26:250:26:28

-What are you laughing at? I can't do worse than you.

-LAUGHTER

0:26:290:26:33

Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:26:330:26:36

-OK. Now, Debbie.

-Yes, Alexander.

0:26:390:26:42

What would you like to go for?

0:26:420:26:45

If you can score 81 or less you are through to the next round.

0:26:450:26:48

I know quite a few,

0:26:480:26:49

so it's deciding on who you think

0:26:490:26:51

-they don't know.

-Exactly.

0:26:510:26:53

So, I think I'm going to go for

0:26:530:26:56

Jimmy Carter.

0:26:560:26:57

Jimmy Carter, says Debbie.

0:26:570:26:59

OK, here's your red line,

0:26:590:27:00

if you can get below this red line you are through to the next round.

0:27:000:27:03

How many of our 100 people said Jimmy Carter?

0:27:030:27:05

It's right.

0:27:090:27:10

And you are through. Very well done indeed.

0:27:100:27:12

Down to 54, taking your total up to 72.

0:27:120:27:16

That's a strong pairing on that third podium there,

0:27:170:27:20

very well played.

0:27:200:27:21

Jimmy Carter, 39th President of the United States.

0:27:210:27:24

-In simpler times.

-Mm.

0:27:240:27:26

-Thank you, Richard. Now, Linda.

-Yes, love.

0:27:260:27:30

What we absolutely need from you is a low score.

0:27:300:27:34

I mean, if you can score less than 24,

0:27:340:27:36

then there is a world in which you could go through

0:27:360:27:39

-to the next round.

-It would be a very strange world. OK.

0:27:390:27:44

I'm going to go for...

0:27:440:27:46

-Go for Jimmy Kimmel.

-Shut up, you!

0:27:460:27:50

I'm going to go for Jimmy Nail.

0:27:500:27:52

Jimmy Nail, says Linda. Jimmy Nail.

0:27:520:27:54

No red line for you as you are the high-scorers,

0:27:540:27:56

but let's see how far down the column we get with Jimmy Nail.

0:27:560:27:59

It's right.

0:28:020:28:03

39. Takes your total up to 139.

0:28:060:28:09

He had seven UK top 40 singles, Jimmy Nail. And a number one.

0:28:120:28:16

And a number one. Thank you very much indeed.

0:28:160:28:19

Now, Chris, good news again.

0:28:190:28:20

It's always good news on your podium.

0:28:200:28:22

You are through to the next round, doesn't matter what you score.

0:28:220:28:26

Do you want to talk us through some Jims and Jimmys?

0:28:260:28:29

I'm a huge fan of Jim Reeves.

0:28:290:28:31

So he would be one of my first to pick.

0:28:310:28:34

And Jim Henson.

0:28:340:28:37

I'll go for Jim Reeves.

0:28:370:28:39

Jim Reeves, says Chris.

0:28:390:28:40

No red line for you, cos you are already through.

0:28:400:28:42

Let's see how many of our 100 people said Jim Reeves.

0:28:420:28:45

Look at that! 5.

0:28:560:28:57

Taking your total up to 30, very well done.

0:29:000:29:02

It's a terrific answer, Chris. Jim Reeves, 5 points.

0:29:040:29:06

But the other one you knew, Jim Henson,

0:29:060:29:08

there he is on the second row down, was a pointless answer.

0:29:080:29:12

So, it's a shame you didn't go for that.

0:29:120:29:15

-JENNY:

-I knew who he was, but...

0:29:150:29:17

Let's take a look at the rest.

0:29:170:29:18

Next to Jim Reeves there on the top left is Jimmy White.

0:29:180:29:21

Would've scored you 55.

0:29:210:29:22

Then next Jimmy Carter. It is not Jimmy Kimmel,

0:29:220:29:25

-it's the other one, Jimmy Fallon.

-LINDA AND JENNY: Oh!

0:29:250:29:27

Would've scored you 17 points.

0:29:270:29:29

Next row, Jimi Hendrix, 73.

0:29:290:29:32

The next row down, it's the physicist Jim Al-Khalili.

0:29:320:29:35

Would've scored you 2 points.

0:29:350:29:37

Then Jim Broadbent, 27.

0:29:370:29:38

From Big Bang Theory, Jim Parsons, would have scored you 13.

0:29:380:29:41

And the bottom row, from many things,

0:29:410:29:44

including LA Law, Jimmy Smits. Would've scored you 5.

0:29:440:29:47

Jimmy Carr, 64. Jim Carrey, 44.

0:29:470:29:50

And do you know the one on the bottom right?

0:29:500:29:52

It is the founder of Wikipedia, Jimmy Wales.

0:29:520:29:56

That would have scored you 1 point.

0:29:560:29:58

Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:29:580:29:59

So, at the end of our second round, the pair we have to say goodbye to with our high score of 39,

0:29:590:30:03

-Linda and Jenny, I'm so sorry.

-It's all my fault.

0:30:030:30:05

-It's not all your fault.

-It is a bit my fault.

-It is. It is.

-It is all your fault.

0:30:050:30:09

-It's been lovely having you here, come and play again soon, please.

-But just not together!

0:30:090:30:13

-Thank you very much. Linda and Jenny, everyone.

-Thank you very much!

0:30:130:30:17

APPLAUSE

0:30:170:30:20

But for Debbie and Angelos, Chris and Bob, it's now time for our head-to-head.

0:30:200:30:23

Congratulations, Chris and Bob, Debbie and Angelos,

0:30:260:30:29

you are now one step closer to the final and the chance to

0:30:290:30:31

play for our jackpot, which currently stands at £2,500.

0:30:310:30:36

So, this is the point where we decide who goes through to the

0:30:390:30:41

final to play for that jackpot for their charities,

0:30:410:30:44

and we do that by making you go head-to-head.

0:30:440:30:46

The good news is you are now allowed to confer before you

0:30:460:30:48

give your answers, and the first pair to win

0:30:480:30:50

two questions will be playing for that jackpot.

0:30:500:30:53

Chris and Bob, I don't think you've put a foot wrong.

0:30:530:30:55

We've had lovely low scores from you, all the way through.

0:30:550:30:58

As we have on that far podium, as well.

0:30:580:31:01

Angelos, you see a hell of a lot through that hatch in the van, don't you?

0:31:010:31:05

Yes, I do, I've got a computer in it,

0:31:050:31:07

-so, I'm just always looking stuff up, you know?

-Very good.

0:31:070:31:10

-It's my hobby.

-That's nice. Good.

0:31:100:31:12

Very best of luck to both pairs, let's play the head-to-head.

0:31:120:31:15

OK, here is your first question, and it concerns...

0:31:220:31:25

-Richard.

-We're going to show you five pictures now of comic book heroes

0:31:290:31:33

from TV or film. We just need you to tell us who the hero is, please.

0:31:330:31:37

OK, let's reveal our five heroes, and here they come.

0:31:370:31:41

We have got...

0:31:410:31:43

There we go, five comic book heroes. Now, Chris and Bob,

0:32:030:32:07

you've been low scorers, so you will go first.

0:32:070:32:09

Feel free to confer.

0:32:090:32:11

Well...

0:32:110:32:12

-WHISPERING:

-It's what?

-Wonder Woman.

-Yes.

0:32:160:32:19

We're going to go for A, which is Wonder Woman.

0:32:270:32:31

Wonder Woman for A, say Chris and Bob.

0:32:310:32:35

Now, Debbie and Angelos, would you like to talk us through that board?

0:32:350:32:38

Put a name to

0:32:380:32:39

all those other heroes.

0:32:390:32:40

-ANGELOS:

-Yes. We'd like to do that.

0:32:400:32:43

A is Wonder Woman.

0:32:430:32:45

-DEBBIE:

-Yeah.

0:32:450:32:46

B is Captain America.

0:32:460:32:47

We don't know C.

0:32:470:32:49

We don't know that. No.

0:32:490:32:50

D is Ironman.

0:32:500:32:52

And E is Deadpool.

0:32:520:32:53

And we think

0:32:530:32:54

we're going to go with E?

0:32:540:32:56

If we think that

0:32:560:32:58

-would be the least?

-We do think that.

-Yes.

0:32:580:33:00

LAUGHTER

0:33:000:33:01

-Yes, we think that.

-E.

-You're going to say E.

0:33:010:33:03

-Deadpool.

-Deadpool.

-Yes.

-Deadpool.

0:33:030:33:05

OK. So we have Wonder Woman and Deadpool.

0:33:050:33:08

Chris and Bob said Wonder Woman. Let's see if that's right.

0:33:080:33:10

Let's see how many of our 100 people said it.

0:33:100:33:12

It's right.

0:33:140:33:15

Wonder Woman is 88.

0:33:150:33:17

Wow. OK.

0:33:170:33:19

Now, Debbie and Angelos,

0:33:190:33:20

that is what you have to beat with

0:33:200:33:22

Deadpool, which you are saying is E.

0:33:220:33:24

Let's see if that's right.

0:33:240:33:25

Let's see how any of our 100 people said Deadpool.

0:33:250:33:28

It's right

0:33:310:33:32

and it wins you the point. Well done.

0:33:320:33:34

-Oh, yes.

-Well done, you.

0:33:340:33:36

APPLAUSE Very good indeed.

0:33:360:33:38

26 for Deadpool, which means, Debbie and Angelos,

0:33:380:33:42

after one question you are up 1-0.

0:33:420:33:44

Well played, Debbie and Angelos. Yes, played by Ryan Reynolds in the film.

0:33:440:33:47

A really good film, Deadpool.

0:33:470:33:48

Not for younger children but a very, very good film.

0:33:480:33:51

Surprisingly funny.

0:33:510:33:52

B, you're right with Captain America.

0:33:520:33:55

Captain America would have

0:33:550:33:56

scored you 69 points.

0:33:560:33:57

We'll leave C for a moment

0:33:570:33:59

cos it's the best answer.

0:33:590:34:00

D is Ironman.

0:34:000:34:01

Not a huge score, actually, Ironman,

0:34:030:34:05

39. And the best answer on the board,

0:34:050:34:07

that's Halle Berry

0:34:070:34:08

and a character from the X-Men

0:34:080:34:11

universe, and it's Storm.

0:34:110:34:12

Well done if you said that.

0:34:120:34:14

It would have scored 19 points.

0:34:140:34:15

Thanks very much indeed. OK, here comes your second question.

0:34:150:34:18

Chris and Bob, you have to win this one to stay in the game

0:34:180:34:20

but Debbie and Angelos will get to answer it first.

0:34:200:34:23

Best of luck with that.

0:34:230:34:24

Our second question this evening is all about...

0:34:240:34:27

LAUGHTER

0:34:310:34:35

Yes, at the start of that fateful season Leicester City

0:34:350:34:37

were 5,000/1 to win the Premier League.

0:34:370:34:40

We're now going to give you five things bookies considered more likely than that.

0:34:400:34:43

We've missed out alternate letters from some of these bets.

0:34:430:34:46

Can you work out what they are, please?

0:34:460:34:48

OK. Bets more likely,

0:34:480:34:50

bets shorter than Leicester City winning the league. Here they are.

0:34:500:34:54

Five of them.

0:34:540:34:55

I'll read those all again.

0:35:160:35:18

There we are. Debbie and Angelos, you will go first.

0:35:340:35:37

-DEBBIE:

-We do know some.

0:35:380:35:40

We've worked out some.

0:35:400:35:42

But it's what we'll get for the

0:35:420:35:44

least points.

0:35:440:35:45

-ANGELOS:

-That's the game.

0:35:450:35:47

LAUGHTER

0:35:480:35:49

That's the game.

0:35:490:35:51

We're in the business end now.

0:35:510:35:52

Yeah.

0:35:520:35:54

-What do you think?

-I don't know.

0:35:540:35:58

I don't know what to do, actually,

0:36:000:36:02

which is very unusual for me.

0:36:020:36:03

We'll just have to go for

0:36:050:36:06

-one of them.

-OK.

0:36:060:36:08

Well, och aye the noo,

0:36:080:36:09

we're going to go for the Loch Ness Monster to be discovered.

0:36:090:36:12

OK, the Loch Ness Monster to be discovered, say Debbie and Angelos.

0:36:120:36:16

Now, Chris and Bob, can you talk us through all of those?

0:36:160:36:19

-CHRIS:

-After you.

0:36:190:36:21

-BOB:

-Simon Cowell to become

0:36:210:36:22

UK Prime Minister.

0:36:220:36:24

The UK Christmas number 1 is

0:36:240:36:27

The something. We're not sure what.

0:36:270:36:29

And Kim Kardashian to

0:36:290:36:32

become US president.

0:36:320:36:34

What shall we go for?

0:36:350:36:37

Shall we go for Kim Kardashian?

0:36:370:36:39

Yeah.

0:36:390:36:40

-We're going to go for Kim Kardashian.

-Kim Kardashian, say Chris and Bob.

0:36:400:36:44

So we have Loch Ness Monster and Kim Kardashian.

0:36:440:36:47

Debbie and Angelos went for the Loch Ness Monster.

0:36:470:36:49

Let's see if that's right.

0:36:490:36:50

Let's see how many of our 100 people said it.

0:36:500:36:52

It's right.

0:36:560:36:57

48 for the Loch Ness Monster.

0:37:000:37:01

APPLAUSE

0:37:010:37:03

48, the Loch Ness Monster.

0:37:030:37:05

-Now, Chris and Bob, meanwhile, have gone for Kim Kardashian.

-This is crucial.

0:37:050:37:08

Yeah.

0:37:080:37:09

HE EXHALES

0:37:090:37:11

Let's see if it's right. Let's see how many of our 100 people

0:37:110:37:14

said Kim Kardashian.

0:37:140:37:15

It's right. Now you have to win this.

0:37:170:37:20

Oh, no. 51 for Kim Kardashian.

0:37:210:37:23

APPLAUSE

0:37:230:37:25

Which means after only two questions, Debbie

0:37:260:37:28

and Angelos, you are straight through to the final, 2-0.

0:37:280:37:32

Yeah, and we've finally found out who would

0:37:320:37:33

win in a fight between the Loch Ness Monster and Kim Kardashian.

0:37:330:37:36

That's good news. Let's fill in the rest of these, shall we?

0:37:360:37:39

We'll leave the Christmas number 1.

0:37:390:37:42

It is Simon Cowell to become

0:37:420:37:43

Prime Minister.

0:37:430:37:44

That would have scored you 67.

0:37:440:37:46

And to win Strictly Come Dancing...

0:37:460:37:48

-Alex Ferguson.

-..Alex Ferguson...

0:37:480:37:51

..would have scored you 12.

0:37:510:37:53

Now, this one is tricky

0:37:530:37:54

because it's obviously

0:37:540:37:55

The something, which makes you think,

0:37:550:37:57

well, you're thinking of bands

0:37:570:37:59

that begin The something.

0:37:590:38:00

In fact, 10 of 100 people said The Cure

0:38:000:38:01

even though it doesn't fit. But they said The Cure.

0:38:010:38:04

But it's not a band at all.

0:38:040:38:05

The Queen...

0:38:050:38:06

It was a Q-U.

0:38:060:38:07

..to have a Christmas number 1 would

0:38:070:38:09

-have scored you 15.

-Very clever. Very clever.

0:38:090:38:11

-There we go.

-All of the things considered more likely than Leicester City winning

0:38:110:38:16

the Premiership...or Debbie McGee and Angelos Epithemiou winning Pointless Celebrities.

0:38:160:38:21

Yeah, winning Pointless Celebrities. Well, thank you very much.

0:38:210:38:24

The pair leaving us at the end of the head-to-head round,

0:38:240:38:26

I'm so sorry, Chris and Bob. Very much

0:38:260:38:28

against the grain of play, I have to say.

0:38:280:38:30

You've been low scorers every time.

0:38:300:38:31

Nothing wrong with either of your answers but they were

0:38:310:38:33

under-scored by Debbie and Angelos, I'm afraid.

0:38:330:38:35

It's been lovely having you here.

0:38:350:38:37

-Thank you so much for playing, Chris and Bob.

-Thank you.

0:38:370:38:38

Brilliant.

0:38:380:38:40

APPLAUSE

0:38:400:38:41

But for Debbie and Angelos it's now time for our Pointless final.

0:38:410:38:45

Congratulations, Debbie and Angelos. You have fought off all

0:38:510:38:54

the competition and you have won our coveted Pointless trophy.

0:38:540:38:57

That's all we came for.

0:39:040:39:05

Better still,

0:39:050:39:06

you now have a chance to win our Pointless jackpot for your charity.

0:39:060:39:09

And at the end of today's show the jackpot is standing at £2,500.

0:39:090:39:12

There we are.

0:39:120:39:14

APPLAUSE

0:39:140:39:15

Your first answer in Round One was pussycat, What's New Pussycat?

0:39:180:39:21

It scored 96.

0:39:210:39:23

Did you imagine for a moment that you would then go sailing

0:39:230:39:26

through the head-to-head round 2-0 up against Chris and Bob...

0:39:260:39:29

I know, I thought we would be out.

0:39:290:39:31

..who... They know a thing or two.

0:39:310:39:33

But you found something. There was something in your locker,

0:39:330:39:36

-in your bag.

-In my bag, yeah.

-What is in your bag?

0:39:360:39:38

There was some real chemistry going on here as well.

0:39:380:39:40

-That is undoubtedly the case.

-That has helped.

0:39:400:39:42

-What is in the bag?

-Don't ask. Don't ask, Alexander.

-Well...

-Don't.

0:39:420:39:46

-I've got...

-It's not been washed, I don't think.

0:39:460:39:49

-No, you can't wash that.

-OK.

0:39:490:39:51

I've got one of them referee lines things, you know?

0:39:510:39:54

That's nice.

0:39:540:39:55

Isn't it?

0:39:550:39:57

It's going to come in very handy for this final round!

0:39:570:40:00

Christmas, Debbie?

0:40:000:40:02

-Yeah, yeah.

-You can never not be prepared for Christmas.

0:40:020:40:05

And then of course I've got my ball in a hanky. Just in case,

0:40:050:40:09

just in case.

0:40:090:40:12

-You did ask.

-I did ask.

-Yes.

0:40:120:40:15

Listen, very good luck for this part of the round, where we

0:40:150:40:17

put four different categories up on the board behind me.

0:40:170:40:20

Today's selection looks like this.

0:40:200:40:22

We've got...

0:40:250:40:26

What do you reckon?

0:40:330:40:35

I think we should either go for letter K or the grand...

0:40:350:40:38

-What are you like on tennis?

-I'm pretty

0:40:380:40:40

-good on the K.

-Yeah? Shall we risk the letter K?

0:40:400:40:44

-Letter K, then.

-Are you sure?

0:40:440:40:47

-Oh, yes.

-We might regret it. I don't know.

-It's nice and broad.

0:40:470:40:51

-It covers all the Ks.

-We said we wanted geography and bridges.

0:40:510:40:57

K could come under that.

0:40:570:40:59

-Kettering.

-Yeah. Exactly.

-Kidderminster.

0:40:590:41:02

-You wanted sport and films, didn't you?

-Well, we've got sport

0:41:020:41:05

there, really. Men's Grand Slam titles. But that's quite specific.

0:41:050:41:09

-So let's go for the letter...

-If you want to go for the tennis

0:41:090:41:12

I'll go for the tennis with you.

0:41:120:41:14

I don't know any obscure ones. Let's go for the letter K.

0:41:140:41:16

-OK.

-Yeah, that's it.

-Letter K. Letter K it is.

-Thank you.

0:41:160:41:21

Richard.

0:41:210:41:22

That didn't take too long, did it?

0:41:220:41:24

LAUGHTER

0:41:240:41:25

And I think if you wanted geography you made the right choice, Debbie,

0:41:250:41:28

so, well done, because this is what we're looking for.

0:41:280:41:31

We're looking for any country in the world which contains a K

0:41:310:41:33

in its usual short-form English name.

0:41:330:41:35

We are looking for any capital city in the world which contains

0:41:350:41:39

a K in its usual English short-form name.

0:41:390:41:42

Or we're looking for any London Underground station

0:41:420:41:44

containing a K in its name.

0:41:440:41:45

So any country containing a K,

0:41:450:41:47

as always, by country we mean

0:41:470:41:48

a sovereign state that's a member of the UN in its own right.

0:41:480:41:51

The capital city of any country in the world containing a K.

0:41:510:41:54

Or any London Underground station, so that's just the regular lines,

0:41:540:41:56

not DLR and overground or anything like that.

0:41:560:41:59

Very best of luck.

0:41:590:42:00

Thank you very much indeed.

0:42:000:42:02

Now, as always you've got up to one minute to come up with three answers

0:42:020:42:05

and all you need to win that jackpot for your charities

0:42:050:42:07

is for just one of those answers to be pointless.

0:42:070:42:09

-Are you ready?

-Yes.

-Yes.

-Yeah?

-OK, let's put 60 seconds up on the clock.

0:42:090:42:14

There they are.

0:42:140:42:16

Your time starts now.

0:42:160:42:17

OK. Capital cities, Tokyo.

0:42:170:42:19

-Yeah, very good.

-OK. Countries.

0:42:190:42:22

They've only got to contain the

0:42:220:42:24

-letter.

-Kazakhstan.

-Kazakhstan.

-Yes.

0:42:240:42:26

-Uzbekistan. It's got a K in the middle.

-That's brilliant.

0:42:260:42:29

-Uzbekistan.

-What about London Underground stations?

0:42:290:42:32

-Bank.

-Yeah. Very good.

-Thank you. Thank you. Camden.

0:42:320:42:36

I'm joking.

0:42:360:42:37

LAUGHTER

0:42:370:42:38

Yeah. Bank.

0:42:380:42:41

OK.

0:42:410:42:42

-Kentish Town.

-Kentish Town. Very good.

0:42:420:42:46

You travel on the Underground, don't you? See, I don't.

0:42:460:42:48

No, no, I just look at the map all day.

0:42:480:42:50

LAUGHTER

0:42:500:42:52

We had 60 seconds,

0:42:520:42:53

we've got 21 left.

0:42:530:42:55

OK, what are we going for?

0:42:550:42:56

Uzbekistan. That's good.

0:42:580:43:01

And Kazakhstan.

0:43:010:43:03

-Well, K is the start.

-Uzbekistan.

0:43:030:43:05

-Ten seconds left.

-Tokyo.

0:43:050:43:07

And what, Bank?

0:43:070:43:08

-Or Kentish Town?

-We'll go for Bank cos it's right at the end,

0:43:080:43:10

-it may have fooled some people.

-OK.

-OK.

0:43:100:43:12

-All right, then.

-OK, you've decided?

0:43:120:43:15

OK, your minute is now up.

0:43:150:43:17

What would you like to go for?

0:43:170:43:19

-We're going to go for one of each.

-Yes.

-Uzbekistan.

-Uzbekistan.

0:43:190:43:25

-Tokyo.

-Tokyo.

-And Bank.

-And Bank.

-Yeah.

0:43:250:43:29

OK. Of those three, which is

0:43:290:43:31

-your best shot at a pointless answer?

-I think Uzbekistan.

0:43:310:43:34

-OK, Uzbekistan goes last. Least likely?

-Tokyo.

-Yeah.

0:43:340:43:37

Tokyo, Bank, Uzbekistan.

0:43:370:43:39

OK, let's put those answers up on the board in that order, then,

0:43:390:43:42

and here they are.

0:43:420:43:43

We have got...

0:43:430:43:45

Three good answers on the board.

0:43:480:43:50

What if one of these turns out to be pointless and wins that jackpot for you?

0:43:500:43:53

What charities are you playing for?

0:43:530:43:54

Debbie, you first.

0:43:540:43:55

I'm playing for The Royal Theatrical Fund and they help actors

0:43:550:43:58

and performers.

0:43:580:44:00

Very good. Angelos, how about you?

0:44:000:44:02

I'm playing for the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

0:44:020:44:05

Very good indeed.

0:44:050:44:06

APPLAUSE

0:44:060:44:08

Two excellent charities there.

0:44:090:44:11

Now, let's hope one of these answers is pointless and will win that

0:44:110:44:14

jackpot for you to share between them.

0:44:140:44:16

Your first answer was Tokyo.

0:44:160:44:17

In this case we were looking for capital cities containing

0:44:170:44:20

the letter K. If this is pointless it will win you £2,500.

0:44:200:44:22

Let's see how many of our 100 people said Tokyo.

0:44:220:44:25

It's right.

0:44:290:44:31

Down it goes.

0:44:320:44:33

Now, if Tokyo goes all the way down to zero you leave

0:44:330:44:35

here with £2,500 for your charities.

0:44:350:44:37

Tokyo now takes us down through the 20s into the teens

0:44:370:44:39

to 16. There we are.

0:44:390:44:41

APPLAUSE

0:44:410:44:42

16 for Tokyo.

0:44:450:44:46

So not a pointless answer, which means

0:44:460:44:47

we move on to your next answer, which was Bank.

0:44:470:44:50

In this case we were looking for London Underground stations.

0:44:500:44:54

If this is pointless, again it will win you £2,500.

0:44:540:44:57

Let's see how many people said Bank.

0:44:570:44:59

It's right.

0:45:020:45:03

Tokyo took us all the way down to 16.

0:45:040:45:06

Bank now takes us down through the 40s and in the 30s,

0:45:060:45:09

down through the 20s, into the teens, passing 16,

0:45:090:45:12

into single figures,

0:45:120:45:13

still going down to 5.

0:45:130:45:14

APPLAUSE

0:45:140:45:16

-It's tough, innit?

-That's a great score.

-It's tough, though, this game.

-Yeah.

0:45:200:45:23

It is tough, I'm afraid,

0:45:230:45:25

and it's only pointless answers in this round that we're interested in.

0:45:250:45:27

So we move on to your third and final answer.

0:45:270:45:29

This is the one you thought was broadly your best shot at a pointless answer.

0:45:290:45:32

We're looking for countries with a K in their name.

0:45:320:45:36

-You've gone for Uzbekistan.

-Good answer.

-It's a great answer. It has to be pointless.

0:45:360:45:40

If it is pointless it will win you £2,500 for your charity.

0:45:400:45:42

Let's see how many of our 100 people said Uzbekistan.

0:45:420:45:46

It's right.

0:45:490:45:50

Now then, your first answer, Tokyo, took us down to 16.

0:45:510:45:54

Your second answer, Bank, took us down to 5.

0:45:540:45:57

Uzbekistan passes 16, down in single figures,

0:45:570:45:59

it passes 5, still going...

0:45:590:46:01

-Oh!

-Oh!

0:46:010:46:02

3. APPLAUSE

0:46:020:46:04

-What a shame.

-3.

0:46:040:46:07

-Well, that is a shame.

-Three excellent scores there.

0:46:080:46:12

Nothing wrong with any of those scores.

0:46:120:46:14

-Nice low scores, but sadly they weren't pointless.

-Pointless.

-Just not enough.

0:46:140:46:17

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

-So close.

0:46:170:46:20

However, as it is a celebrity special, and each of our celebrity

0:46:200:46:23

pairs is playing for a charity, we are going to donate £500 to

0:46:230:46:27

each celebrity pair for their respective charities, so there you are.

0:46:270:46:29

APPLAUSE

0:46:290:46:30

It was a fabulous game, though. Very, very well played right across the show.

0:46:320:46:37

2-0 in the head-to-head, which is fantastic,

0:46:370:46:39

and it's been just such a treat having you on.

0:46:390:46:42

-And you get to take home a Pointless trophy.

-I know.

-Thank you very much.

0:46:420:46:45

-Debbie and Angelos.

-Thank you.

-Thank you.

0:46:450:46:48

APPLAUSE

0:46:480:46:51

-That was a good answer.

-Yes.

0:46:510:46:53

Yeah, there's going to be lots of answers you know as well,

0:46:530:46:55

especially on the Tube station question, I think.

0:46:550:46:57

The toughest one of all was the countries.

0:46:570:46:59

There was only two pointless answers. We'll take a look at them.

0:46:590:47:02

Very well done at home if you said either...

0:47:020:47:06

Terrific stuff. Both pointless answers.

0:47:060:47:08

Now, the capitals. Lots of these are pointless answers.

0:47:080:47:11

Jakarta, Indonesia.

0:47:110:47:13

Kigali, which is Rwanda.

0:47:130:47:14

Minsk, Belarus.

0:47:140:47:15

Tashkent, which is the capital of Uzbekistan, would've been a pointless answer.

0:47:150:47:18

Also Bishkek, Conakry, Dakar, Kuwait City, Lusaka,

0:47:180:47:22

Palikir, Skopje, Sri Jayewardenepura Kotte in Sri Lanka,

0:47:220:47:25

Windhoek, Yamoussoukro in Cote d'Ivoire. All of those are pointless answers.

0:47:250:47:29

Well done if you said one of them.

0:47:290:47:31

There's lots and lots

0:47:310:47:33

and lots of London Underground stations that are pointless answers.

0:47:330:47:36

Anything with a Park. There's loads of those.

0:47:390:47:41

Belsize Park is a pointless answer.

0:47:410:47:42

Canons Park, Chiswick Park. Then Goldhawk Road,

0:47:420:47:44

Holland Park, Kew Gardens, Ladbroke Grove.

0:47:440:47:47

St James's Park, a pointless answer.

0:47:470:47:49

Stamford Brook, Ravenscourt Park, Regent's Park, Royal Oak, West Kensington, Westbourne Park.

0:47:490:47:53

Lots and lots of pointless answers. Turnpike Lane as well.

0:47:530:47:56

Well done if you said one of those. And unlucky, in the studio.

0:47:560:47:59

That 60 seconds, it just goes so quickly, but three great answers.

0:47:590:48:02

-Thank you.

-Thanks very much indeed.

0:48:020:48:04

Thank you so much, Debbie and Angelos.

0:48:040:48:06

-It's been fantastic to have you on the show.

-Thank you.

-Superb play. Debbie and Angelos.

0:48:060:48:10

-Thank you.

-Well done.

0:48:100:48:12

APPLAUSE

0:48:120:48:13

Join us next time,

0:48:140:48:15

when we'll be putting more obscure knowledge to the test on Pointless.

0:48:150:48:18

-Meanwhile, it's goodbye from Richard.

-Goodbye.

0:48:180:48:20

And it's goodbye from me. Goodbye.

0:48:200:48:22

APPLAUSE

0:48:220:48:23

A special celebrity edition of the general knowledge quiz in which four teams try to come up with the answers that no-one else could think of. Presented by Alexander Armstrong and co-host Richard Osman. Featuring Bob Harris and Chris Difford, Kerry Godliman and Miles Jupp, Jenny Eclair and Linda Robson, Debbie McGee and Angelos Epithemiou.
