CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:00:160:00:19

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

0:00:210:00:24

and welcome to Pointless,

0:00:240:00:25

the show that puts obscure knowledge to the test.

0:00:250:00:28

Let's meet today's players.

0:00:280:00:29

-Couple number one.

-Hi, Xander, I'm Shelima,

0:00:340:00:36

and this is my husband Wilfred,

0:00:360:00:37

and we're from Buckhurst Hill in Essex.

0:00:370:00:40

-Couple number two.

-Hi, I'm Lucy, this is my dad Steve,

0:00:400:00:43

and we're from Falkirk.

0:00:430:00:45

Couple number three.

0:00:450:00:46

Hello, I'm Sidra, this is my sister Ghausia, and we're both from London.

0:00:460:00:49

And finally, couple number four.

0:00:490:00:51

Hello, my name's Megs, this is my friend Brenda,

0:00:510:00:53

and we're from Newcastle upon Tyne.

0:00:530:00:55

And these are today's contestants.

0:00:550:00:58

Thanks very much, all of you. A very warm welcome to Pointless.

0:01:000:01:02

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

0:01:020:01:05

throughout the show as it goes along.

0:01:050:01:06

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

0:01:060:01:08

Here to ask the questions, despite the fact that the main question

0:01:080:01:11

he asks himself is "what would Beyonce do?"

0:01:110:01:14

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

0:01:140:01:16

Hiya. Hey, everybody. Welcome along.

0:01:160:01:20

-How are you, sir?

-I'm very well, thank you.

0:01:210:01:23

Excellent. Now, we've got two returning players

0:01:230:01:25

from the last show. Brenda and Megs are back.

0:01:250:01:27

Now, I was amazed, they got knocked out in Round One.

0:01:270:01:30

-It seemed like they were with us for a long time.

-I know.

0:01:300:01:32

You made a big impression! But knocked out in Round One.

0:01:320:01:34

So hopefully... Goodness knows the impression they'll make

0:01:340:01:36

-if they stick around longer.

-I know.

-They'll dominate.

0:01:360:01:39

-They might.

-Yeah, they may...

0:01:390:01:40

We might suddenly, kind of, be in the shadows slightly.

0:01:400:01:43

-We might be.

-It's the truth. So very best of luck to you.

0:01:430:01:45

Wilfred and Shelima got through to Round Two.

0:01:450:01:48

Now, in that show we had lovely Misha and Anna.

0:01:480:01:50

They got through to the final round.

0:01:500:01:52

It was one of those weird jackpot rounds where we said,

0:01:520:01:54

"What would you like to come up?"

0:01:540:01:55

And they said, "Sport or music would be good."

0:01:550:01:58

And we put the four categories up -

0:01:580:01:59

there's a sport category and music category,

0:01:590:02:02

and so they both look at all the categories, and go,

0:02:020:02:04

"We will go for... historical fiction, please."

0:02:040:02:07

LAUGHTER

0:02:070:02:08

And, unsurprisingly, did not get a jackpot answer.

0:02:080:02:12

-But it was unusual, I thought.

-It is.

-It's an unusual choice.

0:02:120:02:14

People are very shy of the areas that they feel they should know.

0:02:140:02:17

I think that's right, they get nervous.

0:02:170:02:19

They think, "If I fail on something I know,

0:02:190:02:20

"it's worse than failing on something I don't know."

0:02:200:02:23

-I can see that.

-I think that's right.

-I see that.

0:02:230:02:24

Thank you very much, Richard.

0:02:240:02:26

Now, Anna and Misha didn't win the jackpot last time,

0:02:260:02:28

as you'll have gathered, so we are adding another £1,000 to that.

0:02:280:02:31

So today's jackpot starts off, would you believe it, at £2,000.

0:02:310:02:34

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

0:02:370:02:39

So, remember this,

0:02:440:02:45

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

0:02:450:02:48

will be eliminated. No conferring until we get to the third round.

0:02:480:02:51

Best of luck to all four pairs.

0:02:510:02:53

Our first category today is...

0:02:530:02:55

Olympic Games. Can you all decide in your pairs who's going to go first,

0:02:580:03:01

who's going to go second?

0:03:010:03:02

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

0:03:020:03:05

OK, and the question concerns...

0:03:080:03:10

Richard.

0:03:140:03:15

On each board we're going to show you seven clues

0:03:150:03:17

to people who've won more than one Olympic gold medal.

0:03:170:03:19

You just have to name who they are, please.

0:03:190:03:21

So there's 14 multiple Olympic medallists

0:03:210:03:23

to guess at home. Good luck.

0:03:230:03:24

Thanks very much indeed. So who are these people?

0:03:240:03:26

Here is our first board of clues, and it reads much like this...

0:03:260:03:31

I'm going to read those all one last time.

0:04:050:04:08

-Wilfred.

-Yes.

-Welcome back to Pointless.

-Thank you very much.

0:04:360:04:39

-Wilfred, remind us what you do.

-I'm an account manager.

0:04:390:04:43

You are an account manager, very good, indeed.

0:04:430:04:45

Do you know what I love about Wilfred and Shelima,

0:04:450:04:48

is when you're painting at home,

0:04:480:04:50

Wilfred can do all the bits above the cornice,

0:04:500:04:53

and Shelima can do the bit by the skirting board!

0:04:530:04:55

-We've actually just done that at my mum's house.

-Have you really?

-Yeah!

0:04:550:04:58

That's just perfect, you've got all the bits covered there.

0:04:580:05:00

Fantastic. Now, Wilfred, what would you like to go for?

0:05:000:05:04

Well, this is not my category, so I'm going to go

0:05:040:05:06

for the very obvious one, which is the first athlete to win the gold

0:05:060:05:09

in 100 metres and 200 metres, which is Usain Bolt.

0:05:090:05:12

Usain Bolt, says Wilfred.

0:05:120:05:13

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

0:05:130:05:16

It's right.

0:05:180:05:20

52, not bad.

0:05:220:05:24

52.

0:05:240:05:25

Yeah, when he recorded his world-record of 9.69,

0:05:270:05:30

when that was the world record, he did it with his shoelace undone.

0:05:300:05:34

-Wow.

-Yeah.

-It goes to show, doesn't it?

0:05:340:05:36

Fantastic. Thank you very much, Richard.

0:05:360:05:38

-Now, Steve, a warm welcome - from Falkirk.

-Yes.

0:05:380:05:41

-What do you do, Steve?

-I'm retired now. I used to be a dentist,

0:05:410:05:44

but I've forgotten all about that now.

0:05:440:05:46

Have you really? How quickly?

0:05:460:05:47

How many weeks before you couldn't remember which tooth was which?

0:05:470:05:50

Oh, about three or four maybe, at the most!

0:05:500:05:52

I bet you were a wonderful dentist, Steve.

0:05:530:05:56

-How many years did you do it for?

-I don't know, 30-odd.

0:05:560:05:59

Not quite 40, but 37, something like that.

0:05:590:06:02

-Wow. Many mouths you've had the pleasure to know.

-Thousands.

0:06:020:06:06

Steve, what would you like to go for on our board here?

0:06:060:06:09

I think I'll go for the Finnish male athlete who won five gold medals

0:06:090:06:14

at the 1924 games as Paavo Nurmi.

0:06:140:06:16

Paavo Nurmi says Steve. Let's see if that's right.

0:06:160:06:19

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

0:06:190:06:22

It's right.

0:06:230:06:25

That is a wonderful answer, Steve! Very well done, indeed.

0:06:300:06:35

Three for Paavo Nurmi.

0:06:350:06:36

That's great work, Steve. Very, very well played.

0:06:380:06:41

Yeah, Paavo Nurmi used to be on the Finnish banknotes,

0:06:410:06:43

he was such a huge star over there, before they introduced the euro.

0:06:430:06:47

Thank you, Richard.

0:06:470:06:49

Sidra, welcome to Pointless.

0:06:490:06:51

Great to have you here. What do you do, Sidra?

0:06:510:06:53

-So I've just qualified as a doctor.

-Congratulations.

-Thank you.

0:06:530:06:56

APPLAUSE There we are, quite right!

0:06:560:06:58

-So when will you be starting?

-In a couple of weeks' time.

0:07:000:07:04

-Wow. That's exciting. Whereabouts?

-In Essex.

0:07:040:07:07

In Essex. Was that where you would've liked to have gone?

0:07:070:07:09

Yes, it's quite close to home.

0:07:090:07:10

-You have a choice, do you?

-Yeah. Well, we get randomly allocated,

0:07:100:07:13

it kind of depends on a few arbitrary tests.

0:07:130:07:16

-I mean, so it could have been... You're from London?

-Yeah.

0:07:160:07:19

I mean, might it have been Aberdeen or Inverness, or something?

0:07:190:07:21

-Quite easily.

-Really? Excellent. Good for you, Sidra.

0:07:210:07:24

Now, what would you like to go for on our board here?

0:07:240:07:26

I think I'll go for the British female cyclist,

0:07:260:07:29

and go for Victoria Pendleton.

0:07:290:07:31

Victoria Pendleton says Sidra.

0:07:310:07:33

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

0:07:330:07:36

It's right. 52 is our highest score, and you pass it.

0:07:390:07:42

Look at that, down we go to 33.

0:07:420:07:43

APPLAUSE

0:07:430:07:45

Not bad at all. 33 for Victoria Pendleton.

0:07:450:07:48

Well played, Sidra. Yeah, two golds and one silver

0:07:480:07:51

for Victoria Pendleton, and has since gone on to ride horses.

0:07:510:07:54

-Hasn't she?

-Yes, ridden in genuine professional races,

0:07:540:07:57

-which is terrifying.

-Terrifying.

-Yeah.

0:07:570:07:59

OK, Brenda, welcome back.

0:07:590:08:01

-Hello.

-From the Hexhamshire Lasses, as we discovered.

0:08:010:08:04

This is a chapter of the Morris dancing.

0:08:040:08:08

-Shall we let it pass?

-Is that right?

0:08:080:08:11

I was with Tyne Bridge Morris.

0:08:110:08:12

Oh, I'm so sorry, Tyne Bridge Morris. That's right.

0:08:120:08:15

-He's a lovely guy, Tyne Bridge Morris! Yeah.

-Nice fella.

0:08:150:08:19

-How long were you with him for?

-Oh, a while!

0:08:190:08:22

XANDER LAUGHS

0:08:220:08:25

Now, tell me, your uniform at Tyne Bridge, bells?

0:08:250:08:28

Clogs, clogs with bells on.

0:08:280:08:30

And how many of you are in the Tyne Bridge Morris?

0:08:300:08:33

Well, you do it in teams of six or eight.

0:08:330:08:36

-Right, I see.

-Or multiples thereof.

0:08:360:08:38

Anyway, there we are. Brenda, you're the last person to have this board.

0:08:380:08:42

Would you like to talk us through it?

0:08:420:08:44

Right, the top one, I believe,

0:08:440:08:46

is a lovely, lovely man called Daley Thompson.

0:08:460:08:49

The second one I should know who it is,

0:08:490:08:52

because I watch the Tour de France, but I can't remember it.

0:08:520:08:54

I thought it was Mark Spitz, but that begins with an S, the swimmer.

0:08:540:08:58

And the Romanian gymnast was Nadia Comaneci.

0:08:580:09:03

Now it's a toss-up between Daley and Nadia.

0:09:030:09:07

-Nadia Comaneci.

-Nadia Comaneci says Brenda.

0:09:070:09:10

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

0:09:100:09:13

It's absolutely right.

0:09:150:09:17

Well, 52 is our highest score, and you pass that unsurprisingly.

0:09:170:09:20

-33 you pass. 28 for Nadia Comaneci.

-Not bad.

-Not bad at all, Brenda.

0:09:200:09:24

28.

0:09:260:09:28

You picked the right one out of her and Daley,

0:09:280:09:30

because Daley Thompson was actually the biggest scorer on the board.

0:09:300:09:34

53 points for Daley Thompson.

0:09:340:09:36

It's Sir Chris Hoy is the cyclist, so not a Tour de France cyclist.

0:09:360:09:41

He would have scored you 44. And the US male swimmer?

0:09:410:09:44

-Michael Phelps.

-Michael Phelps, yeah. He would have scored you 25.

0:09:440:09:47

So Paavo Nurmi, Steve, the best answer on the board.

0:09:470:09:50

-Very well played.

-We're halfway through the round,

0:09:500:09:52

let's take a look at the scores. 3 was the best score of that pass.

0:09:520:09:55

Steve, very well done indeed.

0:09:550:09:56

Steve and Lucy, I think you shall go through to Round Two.

0:09:560:09:59

28 is where we find Brenda and Megs.

0:09:590:10:01

33 is where we find Sidra and Ghausia.

0:10:010:10:03

Wilfred and Shelima, 52, quite a high score there.

0:10:030:10:06

Shelima, a little bit of pressure on you there

0:10:060:10:08

to find a nice low-scoring answer,

0:10:080:10:10

but good luck with that. We're going to come back down the line now.

0:10:100:10:12

Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:10:120:10:15

OK, let's put seven more clues to multiple gold medal winners

0:10:160:10:20

at the Olympics up on the board - and here they are.

0:10:200:10:23

We have...

0:10:230:10:26

I shall read those all one more time.

0:10:550:10:57

So, Megs, welcome back.

0:11:290:11:31

-Thank you.

-So, Megs, we've talked about the Morris.

0:11:310:11:33

-Yes.

-The Morris, if I may abbreviate.

-Yes, we have, yes.

0:11:330:11:36

-What else must we know?

-Well...

0:11:360:11:37

Some important facts about Megs' life.

0:11:370:11:40

You need to know that I'm in a ukulele ensemble,

0:11:400:11:44

and our title is Misspent Uke.

0:11:440:11:47

Oh! How long have you been part of that?

0:11:470:11:51

-Eight years.

-Did you just take up the uke then, or...?

0:11:510:11:55

-Yes, yes.

-Brilliant.

-It's only got four strings.

0:11:550:11:58

Well, exactly, it's nice and easy to play.

0:11:580:11:59

-They're fun though, aren't they?

-Yes.

0:11:590:12:01

Can you dance and play the uke at the same time?

0:12:010:12:03

-You could play for the Morris.

-You could.

0:12:030:12:06

I'll just try it. Yeah, you probably could.

0:12:060:12:10

-Yes, you probably could!

-That would be amazing!

0:12:100:12:13

APPLAUSE

0:12:130:12:16

Can I just check what day this is happening?

0:12:190:12:20

I don't think I'm free, but...

0:12:200:12:23

Thank you very much. Now, Megs, what would you like to go for?

0:12:240:12:27

There you are on 28. If you can score 23 or less,

0:12:270:12:29

even at this stage, you'll be through to the round.

0:12:290:12:32

It's all very well being a Morris dancer and a ukulele player,

0:12:320:12:35

but you've got to know stuff!

0:12:350:12:37

I don't know stuff!

0:12:370:12:39

I'm going to go for the bottom one, which I'm hoping is Bradley Wiggins.

0:12:390:12:44

Bradley Wiggins. Let's see if it's right.

0:12:440:12:47

There is your red line.

0:12:470:12:48

Let's see how far down the column we get with Sir Bradley Wiggins.

0:12:480:12:51

-Oh, that's a good answer, 39.

-Not bad.

0:12:580:13:00

I think that's good enough, Megs.

0:13:000:13:02

That will take your total up to 67.

0:13:020:13:04

Well played, Megs.

0:13:040:13:05

He nearly turned down his knighthood, Bradley Wiggins.

0:13:050:13:08

Do you know who persuaded him to take it?

0:13:080:13:09

-Paul Weller.

-Oh, that's right, yes.

-Funny.

-I like that, yeah.

0:13:090:13:13

Thank you very much, Richard.

0:13:130:13:15

Now, Ghausia, welcome to Pointless.

0:13:150:13:17

Lovely to have you here. What do you do, Ghausia?

0:13:170:13:20

I study natural sciences.

0:13:200:13:21

-At university?

-Yes, at UCL.

-At UCL.

0:13:210:13:25

So what stage are you at in your course?

0:13:250:13:27

So, I'm about to start my masters next year.

0:13:270:13:30

Oh, I see, so you've just graduated.

0:13:300:13:31

Wow. The academic qualifications on that podium are pretty impressive!

0:13:310:13:36

-So you're about to start your masters.

-Yeah.

0:13:360:13:38

Where will you be doing that?

0:13:380:13:39

I'll be carrying on at UCL, so I'm doing a masters in chemistry.

0:13:390:13:42

I see. What aspect of chemistry?

0:13:420:13:44

-Organic chemistry.

-Organic chemistry. Excellent.

0:13:440:13:47

Well, good luck with the masters. That sounds interesting.

0:13:470:13:49

Now, 33 is where you find yourselves.

0:13:490:13:51

Your target is 33 also, should you not want to become high-scorers.

0:13:510:13:56

The previous board was better for me.

0:13:560:13:58

I only know one on here, and that's the US tennis player,

0:13:580:14:02

and I'm going to go for Venus Williams.

0:14:020:14:05

Venus Williams says Ghausia. OK, here is your red line.

0:14:050:14:08

Let's see how close to that red line you get with Venus Williams.

0:14:080:14:11

It's right.

0:14:140:14:15

Not bad, 47 for Venus Williams.

0:14:180:14:20

It takes your total up to a lovely round 80.

0:14:200:14:23

Well played, Ghausia. Another good answer.

0:14:230:14:25

-They're surprisingly low, some of the scores...

-I know.

0:14:250:14:28

..for some well-known people.

0:14:280:14:30

There we are, thank you very much indeed.

0:14:300:14:32

Lucy, a warm welcome to Pointless.

0:14:320:14:34

-Here from Falkirk.

-Yep.

-And what do you do, Lucy?

0:14:340:14:37

I'm a web communications officer at the University of Strathclyde

0:14:370:14:40

-in Glasgow.

-And what do you do for fun, Lucy?

0:14:400:14:43

I absolutely love musical theatre,

0:14:430:14:44

and I'm a member of a local amateur society and we do a musical

0:14:440:14:49

and a pantomime each year.

0:14:490:14:50

Fantastic. What have been your favourites so far?

0:14:500:14:52

We just did Sunshine On Leith, which was absolutely...

0:14:520:14:55

-I love Sunshine On Leith!

-Yeah.

0:14:550:14:57

For you to do something in your own accent, and...

0:14:570:14:59

-Yeah.

-..sing The Proclaimers songs.

0:14:590:15:01

-The Proclaimers!

-The audience were having a great time, as well.

0:15:010:15:04

-Fabulous.

-Yeah, it was really special.

0:15:040:15:05

Love that. OK, there you are on 3.

0:15:050:15:07

80 is our highest score.

0:15:070:15:09

if you can possibly find yourself scoring 76 or less,

0:15:090:15:12

you are straight through to the next round -

0:15:120:15:14

I don't think that should challenge you too much.

0:15:140:15:16

I think I'm going to go for the US athlete

0:15:160:15:19

who won heptathlon in the long jump in 1988

0:15:190:15:22

and say Jackie Joyner-Kersee?

0:15:220:15:24

-Jackie Joyner-Kersee.

-Yeah.

-OK, let's see if that's right.

0:15:240:15:27

Here is your red line. Get below that with Jackie Joyner-Kersee,

0:15:270:15:30

and you are through to the next round.

0:15:300:15:31

How many of our 100 people said it?

0:15:310:15:33

It's right. Through you go! Very well done, indeed.

0:15:350:15:39

I think that's going to be a very good score.

0:15:390:15:41

Down it goes, Jackie Joyner-Kersee. Down to 5!

0:15:410:15:43

Which means you're in a single-figure score total of 8.

0:15:450:15:49

Very impressive indeed on podium two.

0:15:490:15:51

-That's really impressive from the two of you.

-Yeah.

-Very well played.

0:15:510:15:54

Good answer. Sunshine On Leith, by The Proclaimers,

0:15:540:15:56

one of the few songs that always sends a shiver down my spine.

0:15:560:15:59

-Aw.

-Don't you think? It's such a beautiful song.

0:15:590:16:01

Yeah. It is a lovely song, and maybe one for the uke band, I think,

0:16:010:16:05

-I'd suggest.

-Oh, a uke version of any Proclaimers hit

0:16:050:16:07

-would be worth listening to.

-Yeah. Lovely.

0:16:070:16:11

Thank you. Now, Shelima, welcome back to Pointless.

0:16:110:16:14

-Thank you.

-Remind us what you do, Shelima.

0:16:140:16:16

I'm an accountant, but I'm working in project management.

0:16:160:16:19

That's right. And what do you like getting up to when you're not doing

0:16:190:16:22

-that?

-So we've got a 20-month-old son,

0:16:220:16:24

-so he takes up a lot of our time.

-Lovely. What's his name?

0:16:240:16:27

Noah Xander!

0:16:270:16:29

-Xander?

-Yeah, as a middle name.

-Ah, Noah Xander. Very good!

0:16:290:16:33

Good work, Noah!

0:16:330:16:34

Very good. 20 months, it is a great age, as well, isn't it?

0:16:350:16:37

-Yeah, it's fantastic.

-Very good.

0:16:370:16:39

-Now, Shelima.

-Yes.

-You're on 52.

0:16:390:16:41

We have a bit of a match on our hands here.

0:16:410:16:43

There's no way we can be saying goodbye to you

0:16:430:16:44

at the end of this round, that's simply not going to happen.

0:16:440:16:47

27 is your target, so we need 27 or less from your answer.

0:16:470:16:51

There's two up there that I know.

0:16:510:16:53

I think the British rower is going to be Steven Redgrave,

0:16:530:16:56

or Steve Redgrave...

0:16:560:16:57

..and the Australian male swimmer would be Ian Thorpe.

0:16:570:17:01

I think Will would probably know the speed skater,

0:17:010:17:04

because it's quite big in Holland.

0:17:040:17:06

I will go with Steve Redgrave.

0:17:060:17:08

Steve Redgrave says Shelima.

0:17:080:17:10

OK, now, here comes your red line.

0:17:100:17:12

It's... It could be higher.

0:17:120:17:15

I'd like to see it higher.

0:17:150:17:16

But anyway, let's see what happens.

0:17:160:17:18

Let's see how close to it we get with Steve Redgrave.

0:17:180:17:21

53 for Steve Redgrave...

0:17:280:17:30

APPLAUSE

0:17:300:17:31

..taking your total up to 105.

0:17:310:17:34

Yeah, a big score for Steve Redgrave.

0:17:340:17:36

It sounded like the audience thought you should have gone for Ian Thorpe.

0:17:360:17:39

So, you needed to score 27 points to be in the next round.

0:17:390:17:42

Ian Thorpe, it's a correct answer, would have scored 26 points.

0:17:420:17:45

AUDIENCE GASP

0:17:450:17:48

-Oh, no!

-So sorry!

0:17:480:17:52

Would have been exciting.

0:17:520:17:53

As Shelima said, Wilfred, speed skating is huge in the Netherlands.

0:17:530:17:57

-Do you know that one?

-Bonnie Blair.

-Bonnie Blair.

0:17:570:17:59

And that's a pointless answer.

0:17:590:18:00

Imagine if you'd gone the other way around!

0:18:000:18:02

-Aw!

-There it is, that's the luck of the draw. Really, really unlucky.

0:18:020:18:05

Very well done if you said Bonnie Blair at home -

0:18:050:18:08

-and the US male athlete is...

-Carl Lewis.

-Carl Lewis.

0:18:080:18:11

-And he would have scored you 32.

-Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:18:110:18:15

So, at the end of our first round,

0:18:150:18:16

the pair we have to say goodbye to is Shelima and Wilfred. I'm so...!

0:18:160:18:19

Oh, and you...! Think of the glory you would have been in line for!

0:18:190:18:23

I'm so sorry. Anyway, let's not think about that too much.

0:18:230:18:26

It's been brilliant having you on the show.

0:18:260:18:28

I'm sorry we're saying goodbye to you so soon,

0:18:280:18:30

but thank you so much for coming to play. Wilfred and Shelima!

0:18:300:18:32

APPLAUSE

0:18:320:18:34

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

0:18:360:18:39

We're down to three pairs, and I'm afraid this continues,

0:18:440:18:47

we're going to be squeezing and squeezing.

0:18:470:18:49

At the end of this round we'll be down to two pairs. I know, so cruel!

0:18:490:18:52

-But, Lucy and Steve, very well done.

-Thank you.

0:18:520:18:55

Very much top of the class in Round One.

0:18:550:18:57

Let's see if you can keep that up. Best of luck to all three pairs.

0:18:570:19:00

Our category for Round Two this afternoon is...

0:19:000:19:02

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

0:19:060:19:09

who's going to go second?

0:19:090:19:10

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

0:19:100:19:13

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

0:19:170:19:19

Here it comes. We gave 100 people 100 seconds

0:19:190:19:21

to name as many words in the Nato alphabet...

0:19:210:19:25

..as they could. Richard?

0:19:280:19:30

Yep, we're simply looking for any of the 26 words that are used

0:19:300:19:32

to represent letters in the Nato phonetic alphabet

0:19:320:19:35

that contain any of those letters in them,

0:19:350:19:37

so it can just contain one of them.

0:19:370:19:39

So, any of those 26 words that contain the letters N, A, T or O.

0:19:390:19:43

Thank you very much indeed.

0:19:440:19:45

-Now, Lucy...

-Erm, I think I'll go for Hotel.

0:19:450:19:51

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

0:19:510:19:56

It's right.

0:19:580:20:00

34 for Hotel.

0:20:030:20:05

APPLAUSE Seems fair enough.

0:20:050:20:08

-Yeah, well played. And do you know what letter that represents?

-I'm...

0:20:080:20:12

-"O".

-"H".

0:20:140:20:15

-Yeah.

-Oh, yes!

0:20:150:20:18

I see what you mean! I'm so sorry. I am so sorry!

0:20:180:20:21

-Yes.

-I'll quiz you on all of them as we go through.

0:20:210:20:24

I hope you do. I hope you do.

0:20:240:20:26

Thank you very much indeed, Richard. Now, Sidra.

0:20:260:20:29

I'm not 100% sure on this one, but I'm going to give it a go.

0:20:290:20:32

-Foxtrot?

-Foxtrot, says Sidra.

0:20:320:20:35

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

0:20:350:20:38

APPLAUSE

0:20:440:20:47

53.

0:20:470:20:50

The Royal Navy in World War I had their own version of this alphabet,

0:20:500:20:53

and F was Freddie

0:20:530:20:55

and H was Harry in that.

0:20:550:20:57

-Interesting.

-Yeah.

0:20:570:20:59

Interesting. Thank you very much, Richard. There we are.

0:20:590:21:02

Now, Brenda.

0:21:020:21:03

Echo.

0:21:060:21:08

Echo.

0:21:080:21:09

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

0:21:090:21:12

It's right.

0:21:140:21:16

33!

0:21:190:21:22

APPLAUSE There we are, 33.

0:21:220:21:24

-Very well done indeed.

-Yeah, the World War I equivalent was Edward.

0:21:240:21:30

Thank you very much, Richard. We are halfway through the round,

0:21:300:21:33

so let's take a quick look at those scores.

0:21:330:21:35

33, Brenda, very well done indeed, the best score of the pass.

0:21:350:21:37

34 is where we find Lucy and Steve.

0:21:370:21:40

53 is where we find Sidra and Ghausia.

0:21:400:21:42

So, yes, we are going to need a low score from you, Ghausia.

0:21:420:21:44

Good luck with that. We're going to come back down the line now.

0:21:440:21:47

Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:21:470:21:49

-Megs.

-Hello.

0:21:520:21:54

So, remember, we're looking for words in the Nato phonetic alphabet

0:21:540:21:57

that include the letters N, A, T or O.

0:21:570:21:59

My husband's going to kill me if I get this one wrong,

0:21:590:22:02

because we bought a mug last year with all of the letters.

0:22:020:22:05

-So, I'm going to go for Bravo.

-Bravo, says Megs.

0:22:050:22:09

Bravo. Here is your red line.

0:22:090:22:11

If you can score 19 or less with Bravo,

0:22:110:22:14

you are definitely through to the head-to-head.

0:22:140:22:16

How many people said Bravo?

0:22:160:22:17

40 for Bravo. Not bad! Takes your total up to 73.

0:22:240:22:28

Not bad.

0:22:280:22:29

And that equivalent was Butter.

0:22:290:22:32

So, they weren't all boys' names.

0:22:320:22:34

Thank you very much, Richard.

0:22:340:22:36

Now, Ghausia, your target is 19 or less.

0:22:360:22:40

XANDER EXHALES

0:22:400:22:42

I'm not sure about this one, but I'm going to go for Juliet.

0:22:440:22:49

Juliet. Juliet, says Ghausia.

0:22:490:22:52

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

0:22:520:22:55

There is your red line.

0:22:550:22:57

It's right.

0:22:590:23:01

It's a good answer. Look at that, down to 23!

0:23:040:23:07

That's a really good answer - our lowest score of the round so far.

0:23:070:23:10

Takes your total up to 76. Is it enough, I wonder?

0:23:100:23:13

All of the Nato alphabet is also designed to be able to be spoken

0:23:130:23:17

by Spanish and French speakers as well.

0:23:170:23:18

And with Juliet, it's one of the ones where in French,

0:23:180:23:21

they'll spell it with a double T

0:23:210:23:22

to remind French speakers to pronounce the T.

0:23:220:23:25

So, not to call it "Juli-eh".

0:23:250:23:26

-Clever.

-Yeah, how about that?

-Thank you.

0:23:260:23:30

Now, Steve, there you are on 34.

0:23:300:23:32

76 is the high score at the moment. So 41 or less gets you through.

0:23:320:23:38

I'll go for Uniform.

0:23:380:23:41

That's good. Oh, that is good. Uniform, says Steve.

0:23:410:23:44

There is your red line. If you get below that red line with Uniform,

0:23:440:23:47

you are through to the head-to-head.

0:23:470:23:49

How many of our 100 people said Uniform?

0:23:490:23:51

That is right.

0:23:550:23:57

Our lowest score so far is 23...

0:23:570:23:58

Well, you're through to the head-to-head, you've passed 23.

0:23:580:24:01

Uniform scores 11.

0:24:010:24:02

Steve, that takes your total up to 45. Very impressive indeed.

0:24:020:24:09

Very well played, and the World War I equivalent was Uncle,

0:24:090:24:11

-as in Uncle John. Uncle Johnny!

-LAUGHTER

0:24:110:24:14

Now, let's take a look... It's one of those interesting ones -

0:24:140:24:17

obviously there's no pointless answers here

0:24:170:24:19

because it's quite a closed group of words,

0:24:190:24:21

so it's working out what's going to be the lowest scorer.

0:24:210:24:24

There are two words from the Nato phonetic alphabet

0:24:240:24:26

which scored 9 points, the two best answers you could have come up with.

0:24:260:24:29

-If you had to go for one?

-Victor would be a good one?

0:24:290:24:32

-Victor is one of the best answers.

-Is it? Good.

0:24:320:24:34

-Victor, for 9 points.

-Good.

0:24:340:24:35

Victor and X-ray are the two best answers

0:24:350:24:37

-you could have come up with.

-Good.

-9 points.

0:24:370:24:39

10 points for Yankee. Then we've Uniform, which is a great answer.

0:24:390:24:42

15 for Papa, 16 for Sierra, 18 for Kilo, 18 also for India.

0:24:420:24:47

Romeo would have scored you 22, Lima would have scored you 23.

0:24:470:24:50

25 for Oscar.

0:24:500:24:52

You would have got 27 for Golf, 29 for November, Charlie 43, Tango 43.

0:24:520:24:58

And let's take a look at the top three scorers,

0:24:580:25:01

the ones that most of our 100 people said when they were asked online.

0:25:010:25:05

44 of our 100 said Delta.

0:25:050:25:07

Then there's that Foxtrot, which is a punishingly high score, 53.

0:25:080:25:12

Beating that, even, Alfa - on 59.

0:25:120:25:16

Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:25:160:25:18

So, at the end of our second round,

0:25:180:25:19

the pair who are heading home with our high score of 76,

0:25:190:25:22

Ghausia and Sidra, I'm afraid it's you -

0:25:220:25:24

but we'll see you again next time. I'm sure you'll get much further.

0:25:240:25:27

But in the meantime, thanks very much for playing, Ghausia and Sidra.

0:25:270:25:30

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:25:300:25:33

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

0:25:330:25:36

Congratulations, Lucy and Steve, Brenda and Megs.

0:25:420:25:44

You are now one step closer to the final

0:25:440:25:46

and the chance to play for our jackpot,

0:25:460:25:49

which currently stands at £2,000.

0:25:490:25:51

There we are.

0:25:510:25:52

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:25:520:25:55

So, now we're in the head-to-head, it means you're allowed to confer

0:25:550:25:58

before you give your answers, and the first player to win

0:25:580:26:00

two questions will be playing for that jackpot.

0:26:000:26:02

Best of luck to both pairs. Let's play the head-to-head.

0:26:020:26:05

Here is your first question, and it concerns...

0:26:110:26:14

-Richard?

-We're going to show you five cartoon characters

0:26:170:26:20

from films now.

0:26:200:26:21

We want you to tell us the name of the singers

0:26:210:26:23

-who voiced these characters, please. Good luck.

-Thanks very much indeed.

0:26:230:26:27

OK, let's reveal our five cartoon characters, and here they are.

0:26:270:26:30

We have got...

0:26:300:26:32

There you are.

0:27:030:27:05

Five cartoon characters voiced by singers.

0:27:050:27:09

Lucy and Steve, you've been our low scorers, so you will go first.

0:27:090:27:12

-LUCY WHISPERS:

-I know them all. Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake...

0:27:120:27:17

Erm, we are going to go for B, which is Boo-Boo,

0:27:170:27:20

and I think it's Justin Timberlake.

0:27:200:27:23

Justin Timberlake, say Lucy and Steve.

0:27:230:27:25

Justin Timberlake. Now, Brenda and Megs...

0:27:250:27:29

..do you want to talk us through that board

0:27:290:27:31

-and have a shot at some of them?

-We don't know A.

0:27:310:27:33

C we think's Miley Cyrus, D's Rihanna and E's Katy Perry.

0:27:330:27:38

-We'll go for Katy Perry.

-E, Katy Perry.

0:27:380:27:42

So, we have Justin Timberlake and Katy Perry.

0:27:420:27:44

Lucy and Steve said Justin Timberlake for B.

0:27:440:27:47

Let's see if that is right.

0:27:470:27:48

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

0:27:480:27:50

Look at that, 12 for Justin Timberlake!

0:27:580:28:00

Very well done indeed, Lucy and Steve.

0:28:000:28:03

Brenda and Megs, meanwhile, have gone for Katy Perry for E.

0:28:050:28:08

Let's see if that's right.

0:28:080:28:10

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

0:28:100:28:12

It's right.

0:28:150:28:16

-Oh!

-42 for Katy Perry.

0:28:190:28:23

There we are, well done, Lucy and Steve.

0:28:230:28:25

After one question, you are up 1-0.

0:28:250:28:27

Yes, and as we've come to expect from Lucy and Steve so far,

0:28:270:28:29

that's the best answer on the board as well. Could not have been beaten.

0:28:290:28:33

-A is...

-Taylor Swift.

-..Taylor Swift.

0:28:330:28:36

Would have scored you 28.

0:28:360:28:38

C is Miley Cyrus.

0:28:390:28:41

She would have scored 37. And D is...?

0:28:420:28:45

-Rihanna.

-Rihanna.

0:28:450:28:48

-She would have scored 46.

-Thanks very much, Richard.

0:28:480:28:51

OK, here comes your second question.

0:28:510:28:52

Brenda and Megs, you get to answer it first,

0:28:520:28:55

but you have to win it to stay in the game. So, best of luck.

0:28:550:28:57

Our second question this afternoon is all about...

0:28:570:29:00

Northumberland!

0:29:020:29:04

Oh, well, that's nice!

0:29:040:29:07

-Richard? Nice for you, as well.

-Nice for me, too, yeah!

0:29:080:29:11

How about that? We're going to show you five clues now

0:29:110:29:14

to facts about Northumberland.

0:29:140:29:15

Can you give us the most obscure answer, please?

0:29:150:29:17

Thank you very much. OK, let's reveal our five clues,

0:29:170:29:20

and here they come.

0:29:200:29:22

We have got...

0:29:220:29:24

I'll read all of those one last time.

0:29:410:29:43

Brenda and Megs, it's over to you.

0:30:000:30:03

THEY CONFER

0:30:030:30:08

We're going to for the hills.

0:30:100:30:12

-Cheviot.

-The Cheviots.

-The Cheviots.

-The Cheviot Hills.

0:30:120:30:16

There we are, the Cheviots. Now, Steve and Lucy,

0:30:160:30:19

do you want to talk us through the board?

0:30:190:30:21

The top one's Hadrian's Wall. I knew the Cheviots.

0:30:210:30:25

Lindisfarne will be the island.

0:30:250:30:27

Robson Green is the extreme fishing presenter.

0:30:270:30:31

-Lindisfarne.

-Lindisfarne, we'll go for.

0:30:310:30:34

Lindisfarne. OK, so, Lindisfarne for Holy Island.

0:30:340:30:37

We have Cheviots and Lindisfarne.

0:30:370:30:38

Brenda and Megs said the Cheviots - let's see if that's right.

0:30:380:30:41

Let's see how many of our 100 people got that.

0:30:410:30:43

It's right.

0:30:440:30:46

-There we go, well done.

-Not bad.

-14 for the Cheviots.

0:30:510:30:53

Lucy and Steve, meanwhile, have gone for Lindisfarne.

0:30:560:31:00

Let's see how many of our 100 people said that for Holy Island.

0:31:000:31:04

It's right.

0:31:070:31:09

29 for Lindisfarne.

0:31:120:31:14

Very well done indeed, Brenda and Megs.

0:31:140:31:17

As you should have done, you won that answer -

0:31:170:31:19

and it means that after two answers it's 1-1.

0:31:190:31:22

Yeah, always randomly allocated, these questions as well,

0:31:220:31:25

but sometimes... sometimes it does come up.

0:31:250:31:27

It's weird, isn't it, when it happens?

0:31:270:31:29

But you've got to take advantage, and you did.

0:31:290:31:31

-The "Chiviots", you're saying.

-Mmm.

0:31:310:31:32

"Chiviots", rather than the "Cheeviots" or the "Chevvy-ots".

0:31:320:31:35

-Cheviots.

-Cheviots.

-It's not the best answer on the board, actually.

0:31:350:31:38

We'll get to what that is in a moment. The Roman wall first -

0:31:380:31:40

it is Hadrian's Wall.

0:31:400:31:41

It is the biggest scorer, would have scored 57.

0:31:410:31:44

And the TV presenter is, of course, Robson Green.

0:31:440:31:47

He would have scored 45.

0:31:470:31:49

But the best answer is the official county town.

0:31:490:31:51

-I mean, interesting. We wouldn't really necessarily know it.

-No.

0:31:510:31:54

I'm guessing it's Alnwick, I'd have thought.

0:31:540:31:55

-Alnwick, you think.

-Morpeth?

-Or Morpeth, yeah.

-Or Hexham?

0:31:550:31:58

OK, the answer is...

0:31:580:32:00

-..Morpeth.

-Oh, well done, Brenda!

0:32:020:32:05

APPLAUSE

0:32:050:32:09

-That's where the Morpeth Lasses come from.

-Exactly.

0:32:090:32:12

Would have scored you 4 points, as well.

0:32:120:32:14

Very well done if you said that at home.

0:32:140:32:16

So, we are now... We're facing our third question.

0:32:160:32:19

Whoever wins this one goes through to the final

0:32:190:32:21

and plays for that jackpot. Very, very best of luck to both pairs.

0:32:210:32:24

Our third question is all about...

0:32:240:32:27

-Richard?

-We're going to give you alternate letters now

0:32:300:32:33

of things or terms that can be associated

0:32:330:32:35

with US Presidential Elections. Can you work out what they are, please?

0:32:350:32:38

-Good luck.

-Thanks very much indeed.

0:32:380:32:40

OK, let's reveal our various terms - and here they come...

0:32:400:32:44

So, I'll read those again.

0:33:140:33:15

There we are. Lucy and Steve will go first.

0:33:310:33:34

-The top one's caucus...

-Yeah, what's the second one?

0:33:340:33:39

-Convention.

-I'd go with caucus.

0:33:390:33:42

We'll go for number one, caucus.

0:33:420:33:45

Caucus, say Lucy and Steve.

0:33:450:33:47

Now, Brenda and Megs.

0:33:470:33:49

I knew that.

0:33:490:33:52

The next two, I don't know.

0:33:520:33:54

I know who Obama represented, but we're going to go for the day,

0:33:540:33:59

which is Super Tuesday.

0:33:590:34:02

Super Tuesday. So, we have caucus and we have Super Tuesday.

0:34:020:34:04

Lucy and Steve said caucus. Let's see if that's right.

0:34:040:34:07

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

0:34:070:34:10

Caucus! 22!

0:34:200:34:22

That's not good enough, I don't think.

0:34:220:34:25

Brenda and Megs have gone for Super Tuesday.

0:34:250:34:27

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

0:34:270:34:30

It's right.

0:34:330:34:35

-Oh!

-27 for Super Tuesday.

0:34:390:34:41

Which means, very well done, Lucy and Steve,

0:34:410:34:44

narrowly, after three questions, you are through to the final 2-1.

0:34:440:34:49

They did leave the door open slightly for you

0:34:490:34:51

because there's an answer up there

0:34:510:34:52

that would have seen you through to the jackpot round.

0:34:520:34:54

Democratic Party would have scored too many points.

0:34:540:34:57

That would have scored 58 points.

0:34:570:34:59

The formal admission of the president-elect

0:34:590:35:01

is the inauguration. That would have scored 46.

0:35:010:35:04

But it's this next one's that's the best answer on the board.

0:35:040:35:07

-Convention.

-It's the convention, yep.

0:35:070:35:10

That would have scored you 12 points.

0:35:100:35:12

Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:35:120:35:13

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

0:35:130:35:16

I'm sorry to say, Brenda and Megs. We have to say goodbye to you now.

0:35:160:35:19

-It's been such a treat having you on the show.

-Thank you.

0:35:190:35:21

Thank you so much for coming and playing and adding so much to it.

0:35:210:35:24

-Brenda and Megs.

-Thank you.

0:35:240:35:26

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:35:260:35:29

But, for Lucy and Steve, it's now time for our Pointless final.

0:35:290:35:32

Congratulations, Lucy and Steve.

0:35:370:35:39

You've seen off all the competition

0:35:390:35:40

and you have won our coveted Pointless trophy.

0:35:400:35:43

-That's what we came for.

-Perfect.

0:35:490:35:52

Better still, you now have a chance to win our Pointless jackpot.

0:35:520:35:55

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

0:35:550:35:58

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:35:580:36:02

Well, this happens every so often,

0:36:020:36:03

we have a little stealth raid down from Falkirk,

0:36:030:36:06

straight through every round,

0:36:060:36:08

and off you go, lifting your trophies above your head.

0:36:080:36:11

-Anyway, well, you know what happens in this last round.

-Yep.

0:36:110:36:14

We'll put four categories up on the board

0:36:140:36:16

and we hope there's something there that you'll feel comfortable with.

0:36:160:36:19

Let's see what today's selection looks like. We have got...

0:36:190:36:22

-Well, not Post-Punk...

-No, not Post-Punk Albums.

0:36:320:36:35

-And definitely not US Crime Writers.

-No.

-We said not film.

-No.

0:36:350:36:38

So, will we go The "Good", The "Bad" And The "Ugly"?

0:36:380:36:40

The "Good", The "Bad" And The "Ugly".

0:36:400:36:42

-We'll see what's there.

-Who knows?

0:36:420:36:43

OK. Who, indeed, knows? First time we had it on the board, in fact.

0:36:430:36:46

Yes. Hopefully, one of these will suit you.

0:36:460:36:48

We are looking for any of the following, please.

0:36:480:36:50

We're looking for... UK top 40 single

0:36:500:36:52

by the US band Good Charlotte up to May 2016.

0:36:520:36:56

We are looking for the name of any character

0:36:560:36:58

who's appeared in five or more episodes of Breaking Bad.

0:36:580:37:01

So any character in five or more of those.

0:37:010:37:03

Or we're looking for any actor who appeared

0:37:030:37:05

in the 2000 film Coyote Ugly, according to IMDb.

0:37:050:37:09

So, UK top 40 singles by Good Charlotte,

0:37:090:37:12

the name of any character from Breaking Bad,

0:37:120:37:14

five episodes or more, or the cast of Coyote Ugly.

0:37:140:37:17

-Very best of luck.

-Thank you very much indeed.

0:37:170:37:19

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

0:37:190:37:22

and all you need to win that jackpot is for just one of your answers

0:37:220:37:25

-to be pointless. Are you ready?

-Yes.

0:37:250:37:27

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

0:37:270:37:30

There they are. Your time starts now.

0:37:300:37:33

OK. I only know Coyote Ugly.

0:37:330:37:34

Yes, we'll go for that then.

0:37:340:37:36

Adam Garcia.

0:37:360:37:38

John Goodman.

0:37:380:37:40

And, then, there's a girl in it that's in Blue Bloods

0:37:400:37:43

and she's Tom Selleck's daughter, and she was in the Sex And The City.

0:37:430:37:47

-And I can't remember her name!

-I don't know any...

0:37:470:37:50

-Tyra Banks was in it.

-Right, well, that'll do.

-Yeah.

-That's the three.

0:37:500:37:53

-Let me just think...

-Right, OK.

0:37:530:37:54

..if I can think of this girl's name.

0:37:540:37:56

I'm hopeless at these categories.

0:37:560:37:59

She was one...

0:37:590:38:01

The main girl was called Violet

0:38:020:38:04

and she's got a really French-sounding name.

0:38:040:38:07

-Well, you've got three, anyway.

-I know.

0:38:100:38:12

Because I don't know anything about Good Charlotte

0:38:120:38:14

-and we never watched Breaking Bad.

-Never watched Breaking Bad.

0:38:140:38:17

Everyone's going to be, like, "Why did you not watch Breaking Bad?!"

0:38:170:38:20

Yes, that's right. Well, what are your three that you've got?

0:38:200:38:22

-Ten seconds left.

-Tyra Banks, Adam Garcia and John Goodman.

0:38:220:38:25

-Right...

-We'll have to go with them.

-We've got the three.

0:38:250:38:28

-OK, you've got your three as your minute runs out.

-Yeah.

0:38:280:38:31

Let's have those three answers.

0:38:310:38:32

-OK.

-John Goodman.

-John Goodman.

0:38:320:38:35

-Adam Garcia.

-Adam Garcia.

-And Tyra Banks.

-Tyra Banks.

0:38:350:38:39

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

0:38:390:38:42

-I think Tyra Banks.

-Tyra Banks goes last.

0:38:420:38:45

Least likely to be pointless?

0:38:450:38:47

-Adam Garcia.

-Adam Garcia, we'll put him first.

0:38:470:38:49

OK, well, let's pop those answers up on the board, then,

0:38:490:38:51

and here they are. We have got Adam Garcia, we've got John Goodman,

0:38:510:38:55

and we've got Tyra Banks.

0:38:550:38:56

Well, you found three answers, which is good.

0:38:560:38:59

Who knows? One of these might turn out to be pointless.

0:38:590:39:01

If one of these wins that jackpot for you, £2,000,

0:39:010:39:04

what would you like to do with it? Lucy, you first.

0:39:040:39:06

I want to go to all 50 American states by the time I'm 50.

0:39:060:39:09

I've been to 23 so far.

0:39:090:39:11

So, I would use it for a bit of an American road trip.

0:39:110:39:14

Very good indeed. Steve, how about you?

0:39:140:39:16

Well, actually, Lucy has a big birthday coming up very shortly,

0:39:160:39:20

and I think we'll have a nice family weekend away somewhere

0:39:200:39:23

or other to celebrate her birthday.

0:39:230:39:25

Very nice, indeed. OK, well, very, very best of luck.

0:39:250:39:28

Three good answers there. Let's see what happens.

0:39:280:39:30

Adam Garcia. In this case, all three cases,

0:39:300:39:32

we were looking for cast members of Coyote Ugly.

0:39:320:39:35

Adam Garcia was your first answer.

0:39:350:39:37

The one you thought was least likely to be pointless.

0:39:370:39:39

Let's see how many people said it.

0:39:390:39:41

If it is pointless, it'll win you £2,000.

0:39:410:39:45

Well, it's right.

0:39:450:39:46

Adam Garcia now takes us down

0:39:460:39:47

through the bottom half of the column.

0:39:470:39:50

If it goes down to pointless, it wins you £2,000.

0:39:500:39:52

We're in the teens. We're going down in single figures.

0:39:520:39:55

Still going down. 5 for Adam Garcia. Wow!

0:39:550:39:58

-Well, very much the star of the film, Adam Garcia...

-Yeah.

0:39:590:40:04

..and only five of our 100 people got him.

0:40:040:40:07

So, I think we can be a little bit more excited

0:40:070:40:09

-about your next two answers.

-Hopefully.

0:40:090:40:11

Not a pointless answer, obviously.

0:40:110:40:13

So, we move to your next answer which was John Goodman.

0:40:130:40:16

Let's see how many people said this.

0:40:160:40:17

Again, we're looking for cast members of Coyote Ugly.

0:40:170:40:19

If it is pointless, it wins you £2,000.

0:40:190:40:22

How many people said John Goodman?

0:40:220:40:26

It's right.

0:40:270:40:28

Adam Garcia took us all the way down to 5.

0:40:280:40:32

John Goodman now takes us down through the teens.

0:40:320:40:35

Into single figures. Down we go.

0:40:350:40:37

We pass 5 to 4.

0:40:370:40:39

-APPLAUSE

-Oh, well done.

0:40:390:40:42

Not a pointless answer. So, we move swiftly on

0:40:440:40:48

to your third and final answer, which is Tyra Banks.

0:40:480:40:51

This was the one you thought was most likely to be pointless.

0:40:510:40:54

Let's find out. If Tyra Banks is pointless, it will win you £2,000.

0:40:540:40:57

How many people said Tyra Banks?

0:40:570:40:59

OK, we're off. Adam Garcia scored 5.

0:41:020:41:06

John Goodman took us down one click to 4.

Tyra Banks now takes us down through the 20s.

0:41:080:41:11

Into the teens. Down we go into single figures.

0:41:110:41:13

-We pass 5, we pass 4...

-Oh!

-At 2!

0:41:130:41:15

Hard luck.

0:41:170:41:19

Well, considering you, kind of, only had one engine to fly on, there,

0:41:230:41:27

of those three options, you did incredibly well.

0:41:270:41:31

Three very nice low scores there.

0:41:310:41:33

Well, listen, I'm afraid you didn't manage to find

0:41:330:41:35

the all-important pointless answer.

0:41:350:41:36

So, I'm afraid, you don't win today's jackpot of £2,000.

0:41:360:41:39

I have to say, you would have richly deserved if you had.

0:41:390:41:41

That will roll over onto the next show -

0:41:410:41:43

-but it's been brilliant having you here.

-Thank you.

0:41:430:41:46

Thank you for coming along and just being such a dynamo

0:41:460:41:48

the whole way through this show. Low score after low school -

0:41:480:41:50

-and you get a Pointless trophy.

-Hooray!

-That's all we came for.

0:41:500:41:54

Thank you. Well done, Lucy.

0:41:540:41:56

APPLAUSE

0:41:560:41:57

Yeah, it was a great performance throughout. Very well played.

0:41:570:42:00

I think the other actor you were thinking of

0:42:000:42:02

-was Bridget Moynahan...

-Yes!

0:42:020:42:03

-..and she was a pointless answer, I'm afraid.

-Oh, no!

0:42:030:42:06

That would have been an absolute cracker.

0:42:060:42:08

We'll go through the pointless answers now.

0:42:080:42:10

We'll start with Good Charlotte. Five pointless answers here.

0:42:100:42:13

You could have had...

0:42:130:42:15

..or Hold On.

0:42:150:42:17

Very well done if you said one of those.

0:42:170:42:20

Any character from Breaking Bad...

0:42:200:42:21

Now, if you've seen it, you will get loads here

0:42:210:42:24

because lots of the big characters are pointless answers.

0:42:240:42:26

Let's take a look at a few of them. Gus Fring was a pointless answer.

0:42:260:42:29

An amazing character. Hank and Marie, the Schraders,

0:42:290:42:31

were both pointless answers.

0:42:310:42:33

Walter White Jr, who was Walter White's son in it.

0:42:330:42:36

Everybody in Breaking Bad apart from Walter White, Skyler White,

0:42:360:42:38

Saul Goodman, Jesse Pinkman and Brandon Mayhew.

0:42:380:42:41

Every other character who's been in five or more episodes

0:42:410:42:43

was a pointless answer. So, well done if you got one.

0:42:430:42:45

Now, the cast of Coyote Ugly.

0:42:450:42:48

There's Bridget Moynahan. Johnny Knoxville was in the film, as well.

0:42:480:42:51

Melanie Lynskey. Michael Bay is in the film.

0:42:510:42:53

Everybody... We've had four names mentioned already.

0:42:530:42:55

The only other two people who scored points,

0:42:550:42:57

LeAnn Rimes would have scored you points and Maria Bello.

0:42:570:43:00

-Everybody else a pointless answer.

-Thank you very much, Richard.

0:43:000:43:04

Well, Lucy and Steve, very sadly they didn't win our jackpot today

0:43:040:43:07

which means it rolls over onto the next show

0:43:070:43:10

where we will be playing for £3,000.

0:43:100:43:12

APPLAUSE

0:43:120:43:15

Join us then to see if someone can win it.

0:43:160:43:18

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

-Goodbye.

0:43:180:43:20

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

0:43:200:43:23

APPLAUSE

0:43:230:43:26

Quiz in which contestants try to score as few points as possible by plumbing the depths of their general knowledge to come up with the answers no-one else can think of. Presented by Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman.
