0:00:190:00:21

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

0:00:210:00:24

Welcome to Pointless, the show where the aim of the game

0:00:240:00:26

is to score as few points as you can.

0:00:260:00:28

You do that by coming up with the answers no-one else can think of.

0:00:280:00:31

Let's meet today's players.

0:00:310:00:32

-And couple number one.

-Hello, I'm Ray. This is Vicki.

0:00:360:00:39

We are husband and wife from Halesowen, near Birmingham.

0:00:390:00:42

-Couple number two.

-Hiya, I'm Andy.

0:00:420:00:44

This is my band-mate Liam and we are both from Guildford.

0:00:440:00:47

-Couple number three.

-Hi, I'm Haroon.

0:00:470:00:48

This is my wife, Sara, and we are from Enfield in north London.

0:00:480:00:51

Couple number four.

0:00:510:00:52

Hello, I'm Adrian and this is my other half, Richard,

0:00:520:00:55

and we are both from Halifax, West Yorkshire.

0:00:550:00:57

And these are today's contestants.

0:00:570:00:59

APPLAUSE

0:00:590:01:02

Thanks very much, all of you.

0:01:020:01:03

We will find out more about you throughout the show as it

0:01:030:01:05

goes along. That just leaves one more person for me to introduce.

0:01:050:01:08

With enough pearls of wisdom to make a fetching necklace,

0:01:080:01:11

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

0:01:110:01:13

Hiya.

0:01:130:01:15

Hi, everybody. Afternoon.

0:01:150:01:18

-Good afternoon to you.

-And to you.

0:01:180:01:20

What a great jackpot round we had last time.

0:01:200:01:22

I thought you're going to say jacket. I was going to say, "Yes."

0:01:220:01:24

Right, two things.

0:01:240:01:25

-A, what a great jackpot round, but B, what a great jacket that is!

-Yes.

0:01:250:01:29

-Oh, it really suits you.

-Yes.

-That looks terrific.

0:01:290:01:31

-Anyway, back to the jackpot.

-Yes.

0:01:310:01:33

So we had Angharad and Claire, terrific performers.

0:01:330:01:35

They did a Edwardian era in the jackpot round.

0:01:350:01:38

First answer - 7,

0:01:380:01:40

second answer - 5,

0:01:400:01:42

final answer - 1.

0:01:420:01:44

-Ooh.

-Really unlucky one. Really deserved that jackpot.

0:01:440:01:47

But good news for everybody here, good news for our returners.

0:01:470:01:49

Liam and Andy are back from the band the Red Kites.

0:01:490:01:52

-We've been listening to nothing but the Red Kites.

-We love Red Kites.

0:01:520:01:55

Now, Haroon and Sara are also back.

0:01:550:01:57

They are not in a band, unfortunately,

0:01:570:01:59

but we welcome you back. Knocked out in Round Two last time,

0:01:590:02:02

so neither of our returning pairs have been in a head-to-head yet.

0:02:020:02:05

It's a wide open field.

0:02:050:02:07

Thank you very much indeed.

0:02:070:02:08

Also, Richard, I've noticed the beard count is going up.

0:02:080:02:11

Oh, yeah! Yeah, we had the two beards, now we have three beards.

0:02:130:02:17

-Three beards.

-That is almost... That is 3/8.

0:02:170:02:20

Yeah. Thanks for that, Richard.

0:02:200:02:22

Now, Angharad and Claire, as you'll have gathered,

0:02:220:02:24

didn't win the jackpot last time so we had another £1,000 to that.

0:02:240:02:27

Today's jackpot starts off at...

0:02:270:02:28

There we are. APPLAUSE

0:02:280:02:32

Right. If everyone is ready, let's play Pointless.

0:02:320:02:34

Now, all you have to remember is that the pair with

0:02:400:02:42

the highest score at the end of each round will be eliminated.

0:02:420:02:45

Simple as that. Best of luck to all four pairs.

0:02:450:02:47

Our first category this afternoon is...

0:02:470:02:49

The English Language.

0:02:520:02:54

Can you all decide in your pairs who will go first,

0:02:540:02:56

who will go second? Whoever is going first, please step up to the podium.

0:02:560:03:00

OK. And the question concerns...

0:03:030:03:06

'Car' Words, Richard.

0:03:090:03:10

On each board we are going to give you seven definitions of words

0:03:100:03:13

that start C-A-R. You need to give us the most obscure answer, please.

0:03:130:03:16

It's going to be 14 in all to have a go at at home,

0:03:160:03:18

-so very best of luck.

-Thanks very much.

0:03:180:03:20

OK, let's reveal our seven definitions, and here they come.

0:03:200:03:23

I'll read those all one last time.

0:03:470:03:49

Now, all those words start with the letters C-A-R. Ray, a very

0:04:070:04:11

-warm welcome to you here.

-Thank you.

-From Birmingham.

-I am, indeed.

0:04:110:04:15

-What do you do up in Birmingham?

-I'm a police officer.

0:04:150:04:18

-Can I commend you on your height?

-Thank you.

0:04:180:04:21

Fantastic height for a police officer.

0:04:210:04:23

-How long have you been a serving officer?

-13 years now.

0:04:230:04:26

13 years.

0:04:260:04:27

And what do you do when you are not policing?

0:04:270:04:30

-I've got a three-year-old daughter to look after.

-Lovely.

0:04:300:04:33

I like playing golf on the odd occasion.

0:04:330:04:35

Bit of five-a-side football and going to the gym.

0:04:350:04:37

Very good. Now, Ray, these words beginning C-A-R,

0:04:370:04:41

how are you feeling about those?

0:04:410:04:43

Not too bad. I think I'm going to go for the branch

0:04:430:04:46

of medicine that he us with diseases of the heart as cardiology.

0:04:460:04:51

Cardiology, says Ray.

0:04:510:04:52

Let's see if cardiology is right and how many of our 100 said cardiology.

0:04:520:04:55

Oh, I think you've chosen well, Ray.

0:05:020:05:04

38 for cardiology.

0:05:040:05:06

Yeah, good start, Ray. Very well played.

0:05:060:05:07

-He's very business-like, Ray, isn't he?

-Yes.

0:05:070:05:10

-You can tell he's a police officer.

-Yes.

0:05:100:05:12

You can tell he's used to dealing with the likes of you.

0:05:120:05:15

I was telling that as well. I said he could tell that.

0:05:150:05:18

I saw you almost confess to something

0:05:180:05:20

by the end of the conversation.

0:05:200:05:22

Yeah. Thank you very much. Now, Liam.

0:05:220:05:25

So, Liam, what has been the story so far of Red Kites?

0:05:250:05:28

Erm, just relentless sort of gigging, writing, recording...

0:05:280:05:32

-Whose van is it you go to gigs in?

-This guy's.

0:05:330:05:36

-It always the drummer's van, isn't it?

-It's called the Wookie.

0:05:360:05:39

-The Wookie.

-Amongst other names.

0:05:390:05:42

-Now, Liam, words beginning C-A-R.

-Yeah, erm...

0:05:420:05:46

Only one of them is coming to me, to be honest. Erm...

0:05:460:05:49

I'm going to go with...

0:05:500:05:52

the third one down, caretaker.

0:05:520:05:54

Caretaker. A caretaker. Let's see if that's right

0:05:540:05:57

and how many of our 100 people agree with Liam. Caretaker.

0:05:570:06:00

It... 79! Look at that.

0:06:040:06:07

Caretaker, popular answer, that.

0:06:070:06:09

It's a big old score. The caretaker at my primary school was Mr Cocup.

0:06:090:06:13

-Mr Cocup?

-Yeah, I've never heard that name before or since.

0:06:130:06:16

-No. There's a Northumbrian name, Kirkup.

-Is there?

0:06:160:06:19

Which I suppose is Cocup in a Northumbrian accent.

0:06:190:06:21

-I suppose it is, yeah.

-Kirkup.

-Cocup. We made nothing of it.

0:06:210:06:25

-More innocent times.

-Well, that's nice. Exactly.

0:06:250:06:27

Quite right.

0:06:270:06:28

Good stuff. Thank you very much. Now then, Haroon, welcome back.

0:06:280:06:32

-Hello, thanks.

-Yes. Remind us what you do, Haroon.

-I'm a solicitor.

0:06:320:06:36

-A solicitor in Enfield?

-In Enfield, yes.

0:06:360:06:38

And outside the law, tell me what you like to get up to.

0:06:380:06:42

I'm a big sports fan. I enjoy watching cricket, golf as well.

0:06:420:06:46

I also enjoy reading.

0:06:460:06:48

We've got twin toddlers so a lot of our time is actually spent

0:06:480:06:51

chasing after them at the moment.

0:06:510:06:53

-That's right. They're two?

-Two.

-Yes.

0:06:530:06:55

Yeah, but they are beginning to sleep all right,

0:06:550:06:57

aged two, I would hope?

0:06:570:06:58

-Yes.

-So that's a relief.

-It's just when they are awake.

0:06:580:07:01

Yeah. Yes, it's those waking hours.

0:07:010:07:04

Haroon, what would you like to go for?

0:07:040:07:07

I think I'll go with...

0:07:080:07:10

..fourth one down, and say cartography.

0:07:140:07:17

Cartography. Cartography says Haroon. Sounds good to me.

0:07:170:07:20

Well, 38 has been our best score so far.

0:07:200:07:22

Let's see how we do with cartography.

0:07:220:07:24

50.

0:07:310:07:32

APPLAUSE

0:07:320:07:34

50 for cartography.

0:07:340:07:35

Well played, Haroon. Yeah, Leonardo da Vinci was a noted

0:07:350:07:38

-cartographer as well as his many other talents.

-There we are. OK.

0:07:380:07:41

Adrian, it's great to have you here all the way from Halifax.

0:07:410:07:44

-That's right.

-What do you do up in Halifax?

0:07:440:07:47

Well, I work in retail, I work in a shirt retailer.

0:07:470:07:50

I was just admiring your shirt and Richard's shirts, actually,

0:07:500:07:53

because Richard has got the shadow of some pockets without any pockets.

0:07:530:07:58

Someone has stolen Richard's pockets, Ray.

0:07:580:08:01

Maybe it was a pickpocket.

0:08:010:08:02

LAUGHTER

0:08:020:08:04

Looks like an unpicked pocket, actually. That's what they've done.

0:08:040:08:07

So, the shadows, it's like the marks with pockets used to be

0:08:070:08:10

and then, I don't know, Adrian, you've got some extra pocket there.

0:08:100:08:15

Yeah.

0:08:150:08:16

-I think so, yeah.

-How many of these shirts are from your shop?

0:08:160:08:20

This one isn't, I'm afraid.

0:08:200:08:22

ALEXANDER GASPS

0:08:220:08:24

-How about Richard's?

-No.

0:08:240:08:28

Well, 0 out of 10 for loyalty, Adrian.

0:08:280:08:30

What about that?

0:08:300:08:32

-I haven't been there long.

-OK.

0:08:320:08:34

But do not get a massive discount, surely?

0:08:340:08:37

-Yeah, we get a good discount.

-Well, that's good.

0:08:370:08:39

So I'll be buying some more.

0:08:390:08:40

There we are. OK. Maybe if you come back the next show you can wear...

0:08:400:08:43

-You can each wear a couple of shirts.

-Thank you.

0:08:430:08:46

You could each change after each round maybe.

0:08:460:08:48

Aside from shirts, what do you like to do?

0:08:480:08:51

Erm, obviously socialising.

0:08:510:08:54

We like to go out for meals.

0:08:540:08:56

I like to do reading, listen to music, obviously.

0:08:560:09:00

-I do a bit of poetry.

-Do you ever perform your poetry?

0:09:000:09:04

No. It's very autobiographical.

0:09:040:09:07

-Yeah, you know what I mean.

-HE LAUGHS

0:09:070:09:09

OK. Well, maybe we will tease some out of you later. Who knows?

0:09:090:09:13

-I won't be able to remember them.

-OK, well, that's convenient.

0:09:130:09:16

Now, what would you like to go for on this board, Adrian?

0:09:160:09:18

It's all yours. If you wanted to, you could talk

0:09:180:09:20

through all the answers that are there that are blank.

0:09:200:09:23

Yeah, well, I definitely know what number five is

0:09:230:09:26

but I'm not going to go for that one.

0:09:260:09:29

That's cardinal.

0:09:290:09:31

I don't know, I'm not very technically minded with

0:09:320:09:34

the second from the bottom,

0:09:340:09:37

but I don't know if it's something to do with carbolic or something?

0:09:370:09:40

I don't know.

0:09:400:09:42

But I'm going to go for the top one, which is, I think

0:09:420:09:46

and I'm hoping, is carnivore.

0:09:460:09:47

Carnivore says Adrian.

0:09:470:09:49

Let's see if it's right and how many of our 100 said carnivore.

0:09:490:09:52

-Ooh.

-77, a high score there.

0:09:560:10:00

-But it's not the highest.

-Yeah.

0:10:000:10:02

Yeah, big scorers all round in this round.

0:10:020:10:05

Adrian, carnivore is absolutely right.

0:10:050:10:07

You were right about cardinal as well.

0:10:070:10:10

And if you had said cardinal, it would have been 62 points,

0:10:100:10:13

so it would have been fewer points.

0:10:130:10:14

-Now the device in the internal combustion engine...

-Carburettor.

0:10:140:10:17

..is a carburettor. Yep. That would've scored 57.

0:10:170:10:20

As I say, all big scorers.

0:10:200:10:21

-And the bottom one...

-Career.

-Career, absolutely.

0:10:210:10:24

And that would have scored you 63, so cardiology

0:10:240:10:27

best answer on the board.

0:10:270:10:28

There we are. Well, hats off to you, Ray.

0:10:280:10:30

38, the best score of the pass putting Ray and Vicki

0:10:300:10:32

at the top of the table. Very well done.

0:10:320:10:34

Then travelling up to 50 where we find Haroon and Sara.

0:10:340:10:37

Then up to 77, where we find Adrian and Richard. 79, Liam and Andy.

0:10:370:10:41

You're not that far ahead.

0:10:410:10:43

Andy, we definitely need a low score from you

0:10:430:10:45

to keep you in the game, best of luck with that.

0:10:450:10:47

We'll come back down the line now.

0:10:470:10:48

Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:10:480:10:51

OK, let's put seven more descriptions up on the board

0:10:530:10:56

and here they are - all words beginning C-A-R.

0:10:560:10:59

I'll read those all one last time.

0:11:240:11:26

There we are. Richard, a warm welcome to Pointless, from Halifax.

0:11:440:11:47

-Thank you.

-And what do you do, Richard?

0:11:470:11:49

I'm a customer service coordinator,

0:11:490:11:51

so I deal with the Great British public.

0:11:510:11:54

By phone or face-to-face?

0:11:540:11:55

-By phone, yeah. The best way.

-I think I'd probably say, "Phew,"

0:11:550:11:58

-to that, don't you think?

-Yes.

-By phone's a bit easier

0:11:580:12:00

-than them coming up and jabbing you.

-Yes. Oh, definitely.

0:12:000:12:03

Yeah, you don't want that.

0:12:030:12:04

When you put the phone down at the end of the day,

0:12:050:12:07

what's the thing you long to do?

0:12:070:12:09

I like crown green bowling, which I've played for 36 years.

0:12:090:12:13

-I'm also quite big into walking.

-Hm-hm.

0:12:130:12:17

I did collect model cars at one time but I had over 300.

0:12:170:12:20

-That's a lot of model cars.

-Yeah, so I've slimmed it down to 20 now.

-OK.

0:12:200:12:24

That must have been hard, round about the 25 mark...

0:12:240:12:27

-Yes.

-..deciding which ones stayed and which ones went.

-Yes.

0:12:270:12:30

It got a bit out of hand.

0:12:300:12:31

OK, fair enough.

0:12:310:12:33

-You need a big model garage for that, don't you?

-Yes.

0:12:330:12:36

Now, Richard, you are on 77.

0:12:360:12:38

You're not by any means the highest scorers

0:12:380:12:40

because that's Andy and Liam on 79.

0:12:400:12:42

So, if you could score 1 or less

0:12:420:12:44

you would be sure of a place in the next round.

0:12:440:12:46

I'm going to take a risk

0:12:460:12:49

and go for the orange or red plant pigment found in carrots...

0:12:490:12:53

..and I think it might be carotene.

0:12:540:12:56

-Carotene?

-Yeah.

0:12:560:12:58

OK. Well, here's your red line for fun.

0:12:580:13:00

I mean, it is there just take my word for it,

0:13:000:13:02

it's right at the bottom of the column.

0:13:020:13:04

Let's see how far down the column you get with carotene.

0:13:040:13:07

52. APPLAUSE

0:13:120:13:14

That's not a bad score at all in the general scheme of things,

0:13:140:13:16

takes your total up to 129.

0:13:160:13:18

Betacarotene also turns into vitamin A when it's ingested.

0:13:180:13:21

Do you know, in the Second World War,

0:13:210:13:23

to try and keep the fact that we had radar a secret,

0:13:230:13:27

they put it about that all our pilots were eating carrots,

0:13:270:13:30

-raw carrots.

-That's right. They said it can make you see in the dark.

0:13:300:13:33

But, yeah, to hide the fact that we developed that...

0:13:330:13:36

-Well, I say we developed it...

-Cos you and I did it, didn't we?

-Yeah.

0:13:360:13:39

-We were the part of the team that...

-Yeah.

0:13:390:13:41

-Kept that quiet, didn't we?

-Well, we did.

-Until now.

0:13:410:13:44

-It's about time people knew.

-I think it's time we blew our own trumpet

0:13:440:13:47

-a bit.

-Well, I think so.

-Yeah.

0:13:470:13:49

We weren't allowed to do that during the war either, were we?

0:13:490:13:51

-No, certainly weren't.

-Not allowed to blow your own trumpet

0:13:510:13:54

-just in case it told the enemy where you were.

-That's right. Yeah.

0:13:540:13:58

Thank you very much, Richard.

0:13:580:13:59

-Now, Sara, you told us last time about your twin daughters.

-Yes.

0:13:590:14:04

When you get time off...

0:14:040:14:05

I mean, you get a little bit of time off, I guess when they're sleeping.

0:14:050:14:08

-Yes, exactly.

-What do you like doing? Or rather...

0:14:080:14:11

What I should say is, what are you looking forward to doing?

0:14:110:14:14

-Looking forward to just kicking back and relaxing really.

-OK.

0:14:140:14:17

You can kick back and relax after you've given an answer to this.

0:14:170:14:20

What would you like to go for on the board?

0:14:200:14:23

I'm going to go for the second one down

0:14:240:14:26

and I'm going to say caricature.

0:14:260:14:28

Caricature.

0:14:280:14:30

OK, here comes your red line.

0:14:320:14:34

You have to get below it with caricature, though. There it is.

0:14:340:14:37

Is it right? How many people said caricature?

0:14:370:14:40

Ohh! I'm afraid not the right answer.

0:14:440:14:48

That takes your total up to 150.

0:14:480:14:50

Yeah. Sorry, Sara, there's ten letters in caricature, I'm afraid.

0:14:500:14:54

Thanks very much indeed. Now then, Andy.

0:14:540:14:58

Andy, if you can score 70 or less, you're still in the game,

0:14:580:15:01

which is just fabulous news.

0:15:010:15:03

-Now, we discovered last time that you met at music college.

-Yes.

0:15:030:15:07

Where was the music college?

0:15:070:15:08

In Guildford, where we live actually, yeah.

0:15:080:15:10

Haven't moved far from it.

0:15:100:15:11

And is it one that specialises in the sort of music

0:15:110:15:13

that Red Kites play or not? Is it classical music...

0:15:130:15:16

It's just an academy of contemporary music.

0:15:160:15:19

-What did you study when you were there?

-I did drums there.

-Oh, I see.

0:15:190:15:22

I did two years... No, one year on a diploma,

0:15:220:15:24

one year on a higher diploma,

0:15:240:15:26

started a degree...

0:15:260:15:28

dropped out of the degree first month...

0:15:280:15:31

So, with this contemporary music does that kind of mean

0:15:310:15:34

-rock and pop music?

-Rock and pop mainly.

0:15:340:15:36

It's a bit like the Brit Academy, maybe?

0:15:360:15:38

-Yes, probably similar to that...

-There we are, OK.

0:15:380:15:40

..but not churning out as many successful musicians.

0:15:400:15:43

Until now, until now.

0:15:430:15:45

-So, listen, you have to score 70 or less.

-Yes.

0:15:450:15:49

I have...I think, four on there but I'm just trying to think of the one

0:15:490:15:54

which might score under 70.

0:15:540:15:57

I'm going to go with a travelling funfair or circus as carnival.

0:15:570:16:02

Carnival. OK, here's your red line.

0:16:020:16:05

If you get below that with carnival, you're in the next round.

0:16:050:16:08

It's right, well done.

0:16:100:16:13

51. APPLAUSE

0:16:140:16:17

Good score,

0:16:180:16:19

-taking your total up to 130.

-Good work, Andy, chose well there.

0:16:190:16:22

The biggest street carnival in Europe is the Notting Hill Carnival.

0:16:220:16:26

It made me think on that last board, it would be a good name for

0:16:260:16:28

a steak restaurant in Notting Hill, the Notting Hill Carnivore.

0:16:280:16:32

-Why has no-one done that?

-Don't you think?

-Oh, Richard, quickly!

0:16:320:16:35

-It's a good idea, isn't it?

-Yeah, it's a good idea.

0:16:350:16:37

-I'm going to write it down.

-Thanks very much, Richard.

0:16:370:16:40

Vicki, welcome to Pointless, lovely to have you here. What do you do?

0:16:400:16:44

I'm also a police officer, just a shorter version.

0:16:440:16:46

Did you meet working for the police?

0:16:460:16:49

-We did, yeah.

-You did. At what stage? While you were training

0:16:490:16:51

-or while you actually...?

-No, no, just at a station.

0:16:510:16:54

-Right you are. And you're based in the same station?

-No.

0:16:540:16:56

-No? I suppose you can't really if you're married.

-No.

0:16:560:16:59

Well, you can be but I don't want to be.

0:16:590:17:03

Well, what about that? Poor Ray.

0:17:030:17:05

-No offence but, you know, I see him at home.

-OK, fair enough.

0:17:050:17:09

-No, cos otherwise you'll just take work home with you.

-Absolutely.

0:17:090:17:12

Aside from policing, what floats your boat, Vicki?

0:17:120:17:15

-I like a spot of bingo, believe it or not.

-Mm.

0:17:150:17:19

Do you have a particular night when you go to bingo?

0:17:190:17:21

I haven't been for a while but it's usually weekend nights,

0:17:210:17:26

best prizes, you know.

0:17:260:17:27

-Very good.

-It's quite good fun.

0:17:270:17:29

-It's not all about old people.

-No.

0:17:290:17:32

-And the bits that are about old people are fun too.

-Absolutely.

0:17:320:17:35

Now, Vicki, you're through. It doesn't matter what you score.

0:17:350:17:38

-Super.

-Even if you score 100 points, you are through.

0:17:380:17:40

Now, talk us through that board if you can.

0:17:400:17:43

OK. So, I think the top one is a carousel.

0:17:430:17:47

I think the second one down is a cartoon.

0:17:470:17:50

The next one is a cartwheel and the fifth one is a caravan.

0:17:500:17:56

And the last one... I'm not that sure on it, to be fair.

0:17:570:18:02

So, I think I'm going to go with the third one as cartwheel.

0:18:020:18:05

Cartwheel, says Vicki. Cartwheel, no red line, you're already through.

0:18:050:18:09

Let's see how many people said cartwheel.

0:18:090:18:10

It's right.

0:18:130:18:14

48. APPLAUSE

0:18:170:18:20

We have 86 as your total. Very well done on podium one.

0:18:210:18:23

Two low scores, very well played. That's a case of good cop, good cop.

0:18:230:18:27

Very impressive. You knew the best answer of all on that board,

0:18:270:18:30

which is cartoon, which would only have scored you 45.

0:18:300:18:33

I think an awful lot of our 100 did exactly what Sara did,

0:18:330:18:36

which is caricature just fits the clue

0:18:360:18:38

and then you don't concentrate on the letters.

0:18:380:18:40

But 45 for that.

0:18:400:18:41

Carousel, actually quite a big scorer up the top.

0:18:410:18:45

It would have scored you 74.

0:18:450:18:46

Caravan...

0:18:460:18:48

..that would have scored you 79, it's the biggest answer

0:18:500:18:53

and that bottom one is careless and that would have scored 53.

0:18:530:18:58

There we go. Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:18:580:19:00

So, at the end of our first round, the pair we are sending home

0:19:000:19:03

I'm afraid it's Sara and Haroon.

0:19:030:19:04

Yes, caricature that was... Did you notice just before or...

0:19:040:19:08

Yeah, just before I noticed, yeah, it said seven up there.

0:19:080:19:10

-Too late.

-But, Sara and Haroon, it's been great having you on both shows.

0:19:100:19:14

I'm sorry we didn't see more of you this time but brilliant contestants,

0:19:140:19:17

thanks for playing. Sara and Haroon. APPLAUSE

0:19:170:19:20

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

0:19:200:19:23

Well done, everyone, you've made it through to the second round.

0:19:280:19:31

This is fun, isn't it, Liam and Andy?

0:19:310:19:33

-Terrific fun.

-Whey-hee! The second round.

0:19:330:19:35

Particular credit to Vicki and Ray though, well done,

0:19:350:19:38

lowest individual and lowest joint scores there.

0:19:380:19:40

Best of luck to all three of you.

0:19:400:19:42

Our category for Round Two this afternoon is...

0:19:420:19:45

English Football. Can you all decide in your pairs

0:19:470:19:50

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

0:19:500:19:52

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

0:19:520:19:55

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

0:19:570:19:59

We gave 100 people 100 seconds to name

0:19:590:20:02

as many English Championship teams as they could -

0:20:020:20:05

English Championship teams. Richard.

0:20:050:20:07

Yeah, we're looking for any club that's played in the second flight

0:20:070:20:10

of English football - the Championship -

0:20:100:20:12

all the way through from the 2004-2005 season,

0:20:120:20:14

when it was named the Championship, through to 2014-2015.

0:20:140:20:18

-Very best of luck.

-OK, thanks very much indeed.

0:20:180:20:20

So, any football team that's competed

0:20:200:20:22

in the English Championship League. Vicki.

0:20:220:20:26

Oh, dear.

0:20:260:20:27

Erm...

0:20:290:20:31

I'm not that great with football but I'm just going to go with a team

0:20:310:20:36

that, I think, is a local team,

0:20:360:20:38

so it's kind of got to be right, hopefully.

0:20:380:20:41

So, I'm going to go with...

0:20:410:20:43

..Birmingham City.

0:20:450:20:47

Birmingham City, says Vicki. Birmingham City.

0:20:470:20:49

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

0:20:490:20:52

It is right.

0:20:540:20:55

Look at that, 19.

0:21:000:21:01

APPLAUSE

0:21:010:21:03

Nice low score. Well done, Vicki.

0:21:030:21:04

Well played, Vicki. Spent six seasons in the Championship

0:21:070:21:10

up to 2014-2015. Do you ever have to police the matches?

0:21:100:21:13

I do but what I'm more concerned about right now

0:21:130:21:16

is that Ray's a Villa fan and I've just said the rival team.

0:21:160:21:19

Never mind.

0:21:200:21:22

-Andy...

-Right.

-Andy.

-Yes.

0:21:220:21:26

The thing is, I always get confused with the league,

0:21:260:21:29

the Championship and Premier and I'm not sure...

0:21:290:21:33

Fwahh! ..which order it is.

0:21:330:21:35

And I don't know which one Birmingham City's in,

0:21:360:21:38

so it doesn't really help so I'm just going to have to

0:21:380:21:41

take a stab at a team.

0:21:410:21:43

Let's go with...Sunderland.

0:21:440:21:48

Sunderland, says Andy. Sunderland.

0:21:480:21:50

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

0:21:500:21:53

said Sunderland.

0:21:530:21:54

Good answer.

0:21:550:21:57

19 is what Birmingham City scored.

0:21:580:22:00

Sunderland passes 19, stops on 18.

0:22:000:22:03

Very well done indeed. APPLAUSE

0:22:030:22:05

Yeah, they've had a couple of seasons in the Championship as well.

0:22:090:22:12

Currently, at time of recording, in The Premiership but who knows?

0:22:120:22:17

Thank you, Richard. Now, Richard.

0:22:170:22:19

Well, I'm going to go for a local team that I know have played in it

0:22:200:22:25

and I'm going to say Huddersfield Town.

0:22:250:22:27

Huddersfield Town, says Richard. Let's see if that's right.

0:22:270:22:30

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

0:22:300:22:32

It's right.

0:22:340:22:35

Well, 19 is our high score, 18 is our low.

0:22:350:22:39

Look at that, you've passed both of them. 4.

0:22:390:22:41

APPLAUSE

0:22:410:22:43

Well played on the far podium there.

0:22:440:22:47

Great answer, Richard.

0:22:470:22:48

They were promoted to the Championship in 2012.

0:22:480:22:51

Thanks very much. Well, we're halfway through the round,

0:22:510:22:54

let's take a look at those scores. 4 is what Richard's just scored.

0:22:540:22:57

So, Richard and Adrian looking very strong there on that.

0:22:570:22:59

Then up to 18, where we find Andy and Liam. Then up one click

0:22:590:23:02

to 19, where we find Vicki and Ray.

0:23:020:23:04

So, Ray, get thinking of a really, really good low-scoring answer

0:23:040:23:07

to keep you in the game, please. We can't be sending you home this soon.

0:23:070:23:10

We'll come back down the line now,

0:23:100:23:12

can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:23:120:23:14

Adrian, remember we are looking for any football team that's competed

0:23:170:23:20

in the English Championship League.

0:23:200:23:23

I'm going to have a punt of a local one as well and I'm going...

0:23:230:23:26

I'm hoping I'm right, of course.

0:23:260:23:29

I'm going to go for Leeds United.

0:23:290:23:32

Leeds United, says Adrian.

0:23:320:23:34

Now, you're on 4 thanks to Richard's lovely low score

0:23:340:23:36

in the first pass. If you can score 14 or less, which looks like that,

0:23:360:23:40

you're through to the head-to-head.

0:23:400:23:41

He's right.

0:23:440:23:45

There we go, 25, not bad at all.

0:23:490:23:52

29 your total.

0:23:520:23:53

Yeah, spent a long time in the Championship, Leeds.

0:23:560:23:58

Eight seasons, up to time of recording.

0:23:580:24:01

I'm sure they'll be back up again at some point, a big club like that.

0:24:010:24:05

Thanks very much, Richard. Now, Liam...

0:24:050:24:07

-Yes.

-..you're on 18. The high-scorers are now Adrian and Richard

0:24:070:24:10

on 29. So, 10 or less gets you through.

0:24:100:24:13

Pressure.

0:24:140:24:15

I'm going to go with a team that my uncle supports

0:24:150:24:19

-and say Wolverhampton Wanderers.

-Wolverhampton Wanderers, says Liam.

0:24:190:24:23

Here is your red line. If you can get below that with Wolverhampton,

0:24:230:24:26

you are through to the next round.

0:24:260:24:28

It's right.

0:24:310:24:32

Not bad, 21.

0:24:370:24:38

21 takes your total up to 39.

0:24:410:24:43

Yeah, Wolves one of the few teams to have been promoted from it

0:24:430:24:46

and relegated from it in that time period, but back in it both times.

0:24:460:24:50

Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:24:500:24:52

Now then, Ray, you've got a bit more of a target now, it's 19 or less.

0:24:520:24:58

I'm going to go for another local-ish team

0:25:000:25:03

and try Coventry City.

0:25:030:25:04

Coventry City. There's your red line.

0:25:040:25:06

If you can get below that red line there, you're in the head-to-head.

0:25:060:25:10

How many people said Coventry City?

0:25:100:25:12

You've done it, very well done indeed.

0:25:200:25:22

Oh, it's 2 for Coventry City. APPLAUSE

0:25:220:25:24

Great answer, takes your total up to 21. Lowest score of the round again.

0:25:240:25:28

Great answer, Ray, very well played.

0:25:290:25:31

Yeah, another side that deserves better luck, I think.

0:25:310:25:33

Eight seasons they had in the Championship, then went down.

0:25:330:25:36

Now, there is only one pointless answer

0:25:360:25:38

of all the clubs who've ever played in the Championship.

0:25:380:25:41

Very well done at home if you said Southend United.

0:25:410:25:44

Southend United is a pointless answer.

0:25:440:25:46

1 point for Colchester United, Scunthorpe United or Gillingham.

0:25:460:25:50

2 points for Peterborough, Crewe, Coventry we just heard and Luton.

0:25:500:25:54

You would have got 3 for Preston North End, Plymouth Argyle.

0:25:540:25:57

4 for Huddersfield Town, we heard as well.

0:25:570:25:59

Those are very, very good answers because

0:25:590:26:01

there's very few low scorers here.

0:26:010:26:02

5 points for Barnsley and Brentford.

0:26:020:26:04

6 for Reading, 7 for Yeovil Town, Doncaster Rovers

0:26:040:26:07

and a little team called Fulham.

0:26:070:26:08

Hopefully by the time this goes out people will go,

0:26:080:26:11

"You said Fulham were a Championship team.

0:26:110:26:13

"Why, they're top of the Premiership. That's ridiculous,

0:26:130:26:15

"why would you say that?" Top scorers - we've already heard

0:26:150:26:18

a couple of them. Wolves were third. 21 points.

0:26:180:26:22

Then Norwich, 23. And Leeds actually the biggest scorer of all on 25.

0:26:220:26:27

Thanks very much indeed, Richard.

0:26:270:26:28

So, at the end of our second round the pair we are sending home,

0:26:280:26:31

I'm so sorry, Liam and Andy, it's you.

0:26:310:26:33

Not that high a score, 39.

0:26:330:26:35

Only a little bit ahead of Adrian and Richard over there,

0:26:350:26:38

but I'm afraid you are the high-scorers,

0:26:380:26:40

so we have to say goodbye to you.

0:26:400:26:41

-It's been brilliant having you on the show.

-Thank you very much.

0:26:410:26:44

-Best of luck with Red Kites... BOTH:

-Thank you.

-Just fantastic.

0:26:440:26:47

-Cheers.

-Thanks so much. Liam and Andy.

0:26:470:26:48

APPLAUSE

0:26:480:26:50

But for the remaining two pairs, it's now time for our head-to-head.

0:26:520:26:55

Well done, Vicki. Well done, Ray. Well done, Richard.

0:27:000:27:03

Well done, Adrian. You're now one step closer to the final

0:27:030:27:05

and a chance to play for that jackpot,

0:27:050:27:07

which stands currently at £2,000.

0:27:070:27:09

You know what happens here, it's where we decide who goes through.

0:27:130:27:16

First pair to win two questions will be playing for that jackpot.

0:27:160:27:19

Vicki and Ray, you've made it look so effortless -

0:27:190:27:22

low score after low score after low score.

0:27:220:27:25

Richard and Adrian, very well done.

0:27:250:27:27

You've seen off our two returning pairs. Very, very strong play

0:27:270:27:30

-and good use of local knowledge in Round Two.

-Yes.

0:27:300:27:33

So this all bodes very well. Don't forget, you can chat

0:27:330:27:36

before you give your answers, anything could happen.

0:27:360:27:38

Let's play the head-to-head. APPLAUSE

0:27:380:27:40

Here's your first question and it concerns...

0:27:450:27:47

It's a nice one. I'm going to show you five pictures

0:27:520:27:54

of tourist signs from different European cities.

0:27:540:27:57

Can you look at the signs and tell us what cities they are in, please?

0:27:570:28:00

Hm, this is fun.

0:28:000:28:01

Let's reveal our five signs. Here they come.

0:28:010:28:03

There we are -

0:28:360:28:37

signs from five cities.

0:28:370:28:40

Vicki and Ray, you're our low scorers, so you will go first.

0:28:400:28:43

-WHISPERS:

-I know C is Barcelona,

0:28:450:28:48

B is Paris.

0:28:480:28:50

I think we should just go Barcelona.

0:28:500:28:51

Mm-hm.

0:28:510:28:53

We know B and C

0:28:530:28:54

and we think we might know E.

0:28:540:28:56

But we are going to play it

0:28:570:28:59

semi-safe and go with C...Barcelona.

0:28:590:29:03

C, Barcelona. C, Barcelona.

0:29:030:29:06

Richard and Adrian, that board's all yours. Talk us through the signs.

0:29:060:29:09

-What do you think?

-Well, B is Paris.

-Paris, yeah.

0:29:090:29:13

We think E could be Moscow and D,

0:29:130:29:18

I'm not sure whether it could be Stockholm.

0:29:180:29:20

-I think we've got to play safe and go for B...

-With Paris.

0:29:200:29:23

-Go for Paris.

-Yeah.

-B.

0:29:230:29:25

OK, you're going to go for Paris.

0:29:250:29:27

So, we have Barcelona, we have Paris.

0:29:270:29:28

Vicki and Ray have said that C is Barcelona.

0:29:280:29:30

Let's see if that's right and if it is, let's see how many

0:29:300:29:33

of our 100 people said Barcelona.

0:29:330:29:34

It's right.

0:29:360:29:37

APPLAUSE 34, very well done for Barcelona.

0:29:420:29:44

Now, Richard and Adrian meanwhile have said Paris for B.

0:29:450:29:49

Let's see if that is right, is B Paris?

0:29:490:29:51

Yes, of course it's Paris.

0:29:530:29:55

67 people of our 100 knew that though,

0:29:560:29:59

which means, well done, Vicki and Ray, after one question

0:29:590:30:01

-you are up 1-0.

-It might have been wiser not to play it safe there.

0:30:010:30:04

Paris...we're on 67.

0:30:040:30:06

Let's take a look at all of them. A...

0:30:060:30:08

-Do you know A?

-If I had to guess, I would say Warsaw.

0:30:090:30:12

It's not. That's the Bethlehem Chapel

0:30:120:30:14

and it's the Charles Bridge...

0:30:140:30:16

-Oh, in Prague.

-..in Prague, yeah.

0:30:160:30:19

It would have scored you 14 points.

0:30:190:30:21

Now D, let's take a look at that.

0:30:230:30:26

Richard, I think you...

0:30:260:30:27

You can work out it's a Scandinavian city.

0:30:270:30:30

-I think you were going to say...

-Stockholm.

-..Stockholm.

0:30:300:30:32

If you'd done that, you would have won the point cos it is Stockholm,

0:30:320:30:35

-it would've scored you 5 points.

-We should have done that.

0:30:350:30:37

Kallsortering is a recycling centre, that bit isn't a touristy thing

0:30:370:30:41

but it's got the Nordic Museum, all sorts of things there.

0:30:410:30:44

5 points for that and the last one, a big clue there - Acropolis.

0:30:440:30:49

That top one is, of course, Athens.

0:30:490:30:52

That would have scored 47.

0:30:520:30:54

And Koukaki, which everyone knows is delicious.

0:30:540:30:56

Hm, I love a bit of koukaki. Just go to the right there, mmm.

0:30:560:31:00

Lovely.

0:31:000:31:01

Thank you very much indeed. OK. Now, here comes your second question.

0:31:010:31:04

Richard and Adrian get to answer it first but you have to win it

0:31:040:31:07

to stay in the game, so best of luck. It concerns...

0:31:070:31:10

Children's Book Titles, Richard.

0:31:120:31:13

I'm going to give you the initial letters now of some famous

0:31:130:31:16

children's books, you just need to tell us the most obscure please.

0:31:160:31:19

OK, let's reveal our initial letters. And here they come.

0:31:190:31:22

I'll read those all one last time.

0:31:350:31:37

Richard and Adrian will go first.

0:31:480:31:51

I'm struggling on this one.

0:31:510:31:52

-I know the fourth one, The Cat In The Hat.

-Yeah.

0:31:520:31:54

That's Dr Seuss, yeah.

0:31:540:31:56

I don't know any of the others though.

0:31:560:31:59

So, I think we should go for number four, yeah.

0:31:590:32:02

I think we'll go for number four - The Cat In The Hat.

0:32:040:32:07

OK, The Cat In The Hat by Dr Seuss, say Richard and Adrian.

0:32:070:32:10

The Cat In The Hat.

0:32:100:32:11

Now, Vicki and Ray, do you want to talk us through that board?

0:32:110:32:14

You can do all your thinking out loud.

0:32:140:32:16

We think we know the first three.

0:32:160:32:18

Top one - The Wind In The Willows,

0:32:180:32:21

Julia Donaldson - Room On The Broom.

0:32:210:32:23

I think the bottom one might be Stig Of The Dump

0:32:230:32:25

but you know when you're not 100% sure?

0:32:250:32:28

So, I don't really know.

0:32:280:32:29

Do we punt it or do we go with Julia Donaldson?

0:32:290:32:33

-I think we punt it.

-Do you think?

-Yeah.

0:32:340:32:37

-Risk it for a biscuit?

-I trust you.

0:32:370:32:39

-Married you, didn't I?

-OK.

0:32:390:32:42

Do it.

0:32:420:32:44

-OK, you're going to say Stig Of The Dump.

-Yeah.

0:32:440:32:46

OK, so we have The Cat In The Hat and we have Stig Of The Dump.

0:32:460:32:49

Richard and Adrian said The Cat In The Hat.

0:32:490:32:51

Let's see if that's right for Dr Seuss.

0:32:510:32:53

It's right.

0:32:540:32:56

51.

0:32:590:33:00

Vicki and Ray meanwhile have gone for Stig Of The Dump by Clive King.

0:33:020:33:05

Let's see if that's right.

0:33:050:33:07

Let's see how many people said Stig Of The Dump.

0:33:070:33:09

It's right.

0:33:100:33:12

That punt paid off.

0:33:140:33:15

Very well done indeed. 9.

0:33:170:33:19

And it means, Vicki and Ray, after only two questions

0:33:210:33:24

you're straight through to the final 2-0, very well done.

0:33:240:33:26

Well played, Vicki. Funnily enough, you knew Room On The Broom.

0:33:260:33:29

Room On The Broom's an even better answer,

0:33:290:33:31

it would have scored you 3 points, the Julia Donaldson book.

0:33:310:33:33

Very well done anyone at home who said that,

0:33:330:33:35

or anyone who's currently reading.

0:33:350:33:37

The Wind In The Willows up the top there.

0:33:370:33:41

That would have scored you 41 and the wonderful Jacqueline Wilson

0:33:410:33:44

with The Story Of Tracy Beaker and that would have scored 15.

0:33:440:33:48

Thanks very much indeed, Richard.

0:33:480:33:49

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

0:33:490:33:52

I'm afraid it's Richard and Adrian.

0:33:520:33:53

But we get to see you again next time, so you'll have another bash

0:33:530:33:56

at the Pointless trophy.

0:33:560:33:57

-In the meantime, thanks very much, Richard and Adrian. BOTH:

-Thank you.

0:33:570:34:00

-APPLAUSE

-Good luck.

0:34:000:34:02

But for Vicki and Ray, it's now time for our Pointless final.

0:34:020:34:05

Very, very well done, Vicki and Ray, you've seen off all the competition

0:34:090:34:13

with consummate ease and you have won our coveted Pointless trophy.

0:34:130:34:18

You now have a chance to win our Pointless jackpot

0:34:240:34:26

and at the end of today's show, the jackpot is standing at £2,000.

0:34:260:34:29

Well, fantastic.

0:34:350:34:37

You may be serving police officers

0:34:370:34:38

but that was a smash-and-grab raid on Pointless.

0:34:380:34:41

You've just come in like a blur...

0:34:410:34:44

and off you've gone with the trophy, amazing.

0:34:440:34:46

2-0 in the head-to-head, there's no arguing with that.

0:34:460:34:49

Fantastic. What would you like to see come up in this last round?

0:34:490:34:53

I think... Well, I'd like something film-related to come up

0:34:530:34:56

because I know he's going to hopefully...

0:34:560:34:59

Oh, you're hoping for something that he can answer?

0:34:590:35:01

Just put it all on to me.

0:35:010:35:03

So, Ray, what would you like Vicki to answer?

0:35:030:35:06

Something about WWE wrestling.

0:35:060:35:08

-That'd be nice.

-LAUGHTER

0:35:090:35:12

OK. Well, here are today's choices. Let's see what we've got.

0:35:120:35:16

Definitely not literature.

0:35:270:35:28

Definitely not history.

0:35:290:35:31

You're down with your rap, aren't you?

0:35:320:35:34

Yeah, I'm down with the kids.

0:35:340:35:36

I don't know musicals, so...

0:35:370:35:39

-..we're going to have to go with rap.

-Rap superstars.

0:35:400:35:43

-Rap superstars it is. Richard.

-Yeah, very best of luck.

0:35:430:35:46

Lots of people at home will be getting pointless answers on this.

0:35:460:35:49

We're looking for any UK top 40 singles

0:35:490:35:51

by any of the following three artists, please.

0:35:510:35:53

So, any Eminem top 40 single or that has him as a featured artist.

0:35:530:35:57

Any 50 Cent top 40 single

0:35:570:35:59

or any Kanye West top 40 single, please.

0:35:590:36:03

So, Eminem, 50 Cent and Kanye West top 40 singles

0:36:030:36:07

either as a solo artist or featuring them

0:36:070:36:09

up to February 2015 please.

0:36:090:36:11

Very, very best of luck.

0:36:110:36:13

Well, this is like a dream round, isn't it, for you(?)

0:36:130:36:15

LAUGHTER

0:36:150:36:17

-We are living the dream right now.

-Yeah.

0:36:170:36:20

As always, you get up to one minute

0:36:200:36:21

to essentially make up three answers.

0:36:210:36:23

You just have to find one pointless answer

0:36:230:36:25

amongst those three you give us and if you do,

0:36:250:36:28

you will win that jackpot of £2,000.

0:36:280:36:30

-Are you ready? BOTH:

-Yes.

0:36:300:36:31

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

0:36:310:36:33

Your time starts now.

0:36:330:36:35

Right. So Kanye West, I have got Through The Wire and Jesus Walks

0:36:350:36:40

and they're the only ones that are coming to me right now.

0:36:400:36:42

-I don't know any.

-50 Cent, not a clue except one that goes,

0:36:420:36:45

-"You'll find me in the club..."

-In The Club.

0:36:450:36:47

-Is that what it's called?

-I think.

-OK, Eminem's...

0:36:470:36:49

-Lose Yourself, is that one?

-Yeah, but is that really popular?

0:36:490:36:53

-I don't know.

-Hang on, let me just try and think of Kanye ones.

0:36:530:36:56

I don't know whether or not I'm going to think of any more.

0:36:560:37:00

-What collaborations has Eminem done?

-I'm thinking like Graduation

0:37:000:37:03

but I think that was the album name and not a single name.

0:37:030:37:06

-There might be a single on there.

-Called Graduation?

0:37:060:37:08

It might not be a top 40 single.

0:37:080:37:11

Oh, my goodness gracious.

0:37:110:37:13

I know Through The Wire and I'm sure Jesus Walks was.

0:37:130:37:16

-Let's have them two and...

-Shall we have those two and...

0:37:160:37:20

What collaborations did Eminem do with Rihanna?

0:37:200:37:23

Ten seconds left.

0:37:240:37:25

-Oh, my gosh!

-Just have that other Kanye one.

0:37:270:37:29

What did you just say?

0:37:290:37:30

-Lose Yourself.

-No, no, let's do Lose Yourself.

0:37:300:37:33

OK, that's your time up, let's have your three answers.

0:37:350:37:37

I'm sorry that minute's just never long enough.

0:37:370:37:40

What are you going to give me?

0:37:400:37:42

Right. So, we're going to go with Lose Yourself, that's Eminem.

0:37:420:37:45

Lose Yourself, Eminem.

0:37:450:37:47

And then the other two are going to be Kanye West.

0:37:470:37:49

So, we're going to go with Through The Wire...

0:37:490:37:51

-Through The Wire.

-..and Jesus Walks.

-Jesus Walks.

0:37:510:37:53

Of those three, which is your best shot at a pointless answer?

0:37:530:37:56

-Jesus Walks.

-Jesus Walks goes last.

0:37:560:37:58

Least likely to be pointless?

0:37:580:37:59

-Eminem.

-Lose Yourself.

-Lose Yourself?

0:37:590:38:01

Let's pop those up on the board in that order then and here they are.

0:38:010:38:05

We've got Lose Yourself, we've got Through The Wire

0:38:050:38:07

and we've got Jesus Walks.

0:38:070:38:09

Well, very, very best of luck, three good answers on the board there.

0:38:090:38:12

It turns out you didn't have to make anything up at all.

0:38:120:38:14

One of those could easily be pointless, maybe more than one.

0:38:140:38:17

What would you do if you won that jackpot, 2,000 quid,

0:38:170:38:19

what would you do with it? Vicki?

0:38:190:38:22

Well, initially, I want to convert the garage to a downstairs toilet.

0:38:220:38:27

-So exciting, I know(!)

-That is a glamorous answer, I have to say.

0:38:270:38:31

LAUGHTER

0:38:310:38:33

However, we're hoping to go to Florida next year,

0:38:330:38:37

so it might be spent on Disney tickets instead now. So, who knows?

0:38:370:38:39

Ray, anything you want to add to that?

0:38:390:38:41

-Exactly the same, just taking the family to Disney.

-OK, very good.

0:38:410:38:44

-He's told me to change mine, so it's Disney now.

-OK, it's Disney now.

0:38:440:38:47

Downstairs toilet's out the window.

0:38:470:38:49

-I mean, not literally, that would be wrong.

-That would be weird.

0:38:490:38:51

We, in the first case, were looking for Eminem top 40 singles.

0:38:510:38:54

You've gone for Lose Yourself, let's find out if this is pointless.

0:38:540:38:57

If it is it'll win you £2,000. How many people said Lose Yourself?

0:38:570:39:01

It's right.

0:39:040:39:06

If Lose Yourself goes all the way down to 0,

0:39:060:39:08

you are leaving here with £2,000.

0:39:080:39:10

Down it goes, through the teens into single figures,

0:39:100:39:13

still going down.

0:39:130:39:15

5. APPLAUSE

0:39:150:39:17

-Now, this is one you thought was quite obvious.

-Yeah.

0:39:200:39:23

Five of our 100 people got that.

0:39:230:39:25

That's an excellent score, a brilliant low score there.

0:39:250:39:28

However, we're only interested in pointless answers

0:39:280:39:31

in this last round, so you have two more shots at today's jackpot.

0:39:310:39:33

Your next answer was Through The Wire,

0:39:330:39:35

in fact, your next two answers were Kanye West top 40 singles.

0:39:350:39:38

It has to be pointless for you to win that jackpot,

0:39:380:39:40

so for £2,000, let's see how many people said Through The Wire.

0:39:400:39:44

Well, it's right.

0:39:470:39:48

Now, Lose Yourself took us all the way down to 5.

0:39:480:39:51

Through The Wire takes us down through the teens

0:39:510:39:55

into single figures. Down it goes, passes 5,

0:39:550:39:57

down it goes, still going down. 1!

0:39:570:39:59

Oh, my God! 1.

0:39:590:40:02

You were one person away from a £2,000 jackpot there, which means...

0:40:050:40:10

Who is that one person!

0:40:100:40:13

Just over there.

0:40:130:40:14

It was Kim Kardashian.

0:40:140:40:16

LAUGHTER

0:40:160:40:18

OK, you only have one more chance to win today's jackpot.

0:40:190:40:22

Everything is now riding on your third and final answer,

0:40:220:40:24

which is Jesus Walks. Again, we were looking for a Kanye West

0:40:240:40:27

UK top 40 single. If it's pointless, it will win you £2,000.

0:40:270:40:30

How many people said Jesus Walks?

0:40:300:40:32

It's right.

0:40:350:40:37

Well, it's been a fantastic process so far.

0:40:370:40:41

We have gone from 5 down to 1.

0:40:410:40:44

If we can go down to 0 with Jesus Walks we are...

0:40:440:40:46

Oh!

0:40:460:40:48

3.

0:40:540:40:55

I tell you what, three fantastic answers there,

0:40:570:40:59

three fantastic low scores.

0:40:590:41:01

-So unlucky, particularly with that 1 there in the middle.

-Yeah.

0:41:010:41:04

I'm afraid that you didn't manage to find that all-important

0:41:040:41:07

pointless answer, so I'm afraid you don't win today's jackpot

0:41:070:41:09

of £2,000. That will roll over on to the next show

0:41:090:41:12

but you can hold your heads up so high, what a performance.

0:41:120:41:15

-We know rap.

-You sure do. That was fantastic,

0:41:150:41:18

you did brilliantly all the way through the show.

0:41:180:41:21

It's been a great pleasure having you on and you get to take home

0:41:210:41:24

-a Pointless trophy each, so very, very well done. BOTH:

-Thank you.

0:41:240:41:26

APPLAUSE

0:41:260:41:29

Well played, Vicki and Ray, unlucky there.

0:41:310:41:33

Kanye West has become a figure of fun in recent years

0:41:330:41:36

but Through The Wire and Jesus Walks are two sensational tracks,

0:41:360:41:39

absolutely brilliant tracks.

0:41:390:41:41

Let's look at the pointless answers in the different categories.

0:41:410:41:44

Eminem, loads of pointless answers. You could have had Beautiful,

0:41:440:41:47

Business, Crack A Bottle - it's also a pointless answer for 50 Cent -

0:41:470:41:50

Guts Over Fear, I Need A Doctor, Just Lose It,

0:41:500:41:52

Like Toy Soldiers was a pointless answer,

0:41:520:41:54

No Love, Sing For The Moment was a pointless answer, Space Bound,

0:41:540:41:57

Survival, When I'm Gone, You Don't Know,

0:41:570:41:58

all of those pointless. Well done if you said any of those.

0:41:580:42:01

The Rihanna song you were thinking of was Love The Way You Lie,

0:42:010:42:03

which would have scored you 5 points.

0:42:030:42:05

Let's take a look at 50 Cent.

0:42:050:42:07

Buzzin', How We Do with The Game, Just A Lil Bit, My Life for 50 Cent.

0:42:070:42:12

Let's take a look now at Kanye.

0:42:120:42:14

Diamonds From Sierra Leone was a pointless answer, Homecoming,

0:42:150:42:18

Love Lockdown, Otis... Everything apart from Gold Digger,

0:42:180:42:21

Stronger, Jesus Walks, All Fall Down, Four Five Seconds -

0:42:210:42:24

another great track - Through The Wire, Touch The Sky,

0:42:240:42:27

American Boy and ET, everything else by Kanye or featuring Kanye

0:42:270:42:30

was a pointless answer including Run This Town.

0:42:300:42:32

Lots of other good answers there.

0:42:320:42:33

Congratulations if you got any of those at home and Vicki and Ray,

0:42:330:42:36

a pleasure to meet you and very well played today.

0:42:360:42:38

Thanks very much, Richard.

0:42:380:42:39

Unfortunately we have to say goodbye to you, Vicki and Ray,

0:42:390:42:42

but it's been fabulous having you on the show.

0:42:420:42:44

-Thank you so much for playing.

-Thank you.

-Very, very strong contestants.

0:42:440:42:48

Well, Vicki and Ray didn't win our jackpot today,

0:42:480:42:51

which means it rolls over onto the next show

0:42:510:42:53

when we will be playing for £3,000.

0:42:530:42:55

Join us next time to see if someone can win it.

0:42:580:43:00

-Meanwhile, it's goodbye from Richard...

-Goodbye.

0:43:000:43:02

..and it's goodbye from me, goodbye.

0:43:020:43:04
