Hello and welcome to The Code.
Locked in this safe is £3,000.
To open the safe and win the money,
contestants just need to crack a three-digit code.
Every time someone fails, though,
more money goes into the safe and the jackpot gets higher and higher.
So, let's meet our next team hoping to crack the code.
Come on down. Lovely to see you. Fran, how are you?
-Very good, thank you.
-Good to have you here. George.
-Nice to meet you.
-Tell us a little bit about yourself.
-I know you're from Cheshire.
-How do you guys know each other?
-We're brother and sister.
-Excellent. So you've known each other...
-All our lives.
-All of my life.
-All of your life and most of yours, George.
What would you say are your strengths and weaknesses?
Fran is definitely the brains of the operation.
Oh, no, I wouldn't say that.
I think we're equal, just in very different areas.
We probably complement each other quite well in the sense we cover
different areas between us.
You're not covering the same bases.
-And as long as you talk it through, that's what we find.
I know. That's what we keep saying that we need to do.
We're definitely good at talking, so we'll be all right.
Yeah, that's true. You just need to shut me up!
Well, listen, no problems with that.
Talk your hearts away, get to the right answer, that's what we want to happen.
-Now, last time Suda and Simon walked away with the jackpot.
They did brilliantly.
-Well, nice for them.
-I mean "Yay!"
We're happy for them but...
We're happy for them but that means we start again from scratch.
A fresh £3,000 goes into the safe.
If you are ready, Fran and George.
-Let's set the code.
There we go. Three blanks.
You want to turn those into three numbers.
Before we start let me reintroduce our wizard of wisdom -
-Hello, welcome to The Code.
It's our 48th episode.
We have yet to have any winners that are blood relatives.
I'm hoping you can change that.
-OK, Fran and George, if you're ready,
let's have a look at your first three answers.
Only one of those is correct.
That's the one you're trying to find.
-And at this stage we can open all three questions behind them.
So we will start at the top. The question behind Appalachian.
-Absolutely no idea. Sorry.
-I'm thinking Arab Spring,
but that's the only other thing I could think of that's a possibility.
Aren't Arab Springs the things that you used to do in the garden?
-They are, but I think it's something more serious.
-I don't know.
Let's keep that as a possibility.
OK. We'll open the question behind Ned.
-No, I don't think that is right.
-What do you think it is?
-Mum is going to be really upset.
-Yeah, I don't know.
-Isn't there someone called Eeyore?
-Yeah there is, but...
-Is that not...
OK, that makes a lot more sense.
Let's have a look at the question behind rucksack.
-Well, sack in French is bag.
OK. Let's go gut instincts.
-Let rule out...
-The middle one?
-The middle one. So that's out.
Oh, my gosh.
And then... What did we say? We said if in doubt between 50-50,
-we go for the bottom one.
-Yeah, we did, didn't we?
And your instinct was "sac", which sounded European...
-Let's go with the bottom one. Yeah?
-OK, I like your decisiveness.
-Spoken like a true big brother there.
OK, we're going to lock in rucksack as our correct answer.
If it is, you get the chance, Fran and George,
to put a number into the code, see if it sticks.
If it's not they are on their way home.
I really don't know.
We don't want that just yet.
Is rucksack our correct answer?
There we go. First question dispatched.
That wasn't even excitement, that was just pure relief.
-The first one is out of the way.
-Well done, guys. Lesley.
-Yes, very well done.
Fran, you remembered that "sac" is the word for bag in French.
"Sac a dos" is a "backpack",
literally a bag on the back in French,
and that helped to lead you to the correct answer.
In German, "Rucken" means "back" and "Sack" means "bag".
Well done on that one. Let's look at the wrong answers.
Appalachian. Not correct. This one didn't feel right to you.
There is an Appalachian Spring,
that's a piece of music by Aaron Copland.
The correct answer here is Arab, exactly as George mentioned.
And moving on to Ned.
There is no animal in the Winnie The Pooh books called Ned.
The correct answer, as you said,
you weren't sure if you had the right answer here,
but it is Eeyore the donkey in Winnie The Pooh with a pinned-on
tail with a pink bow on the end.
I'm not sure why you're so nervous.
George, Fran, the chance to choose a number to go into your code.
Which one do you want to pick? We need a plan here.
We do, yeah. We've got a sequence ready.
OK, what is it based on? Can you tell me or is it a secret?
-We can. It's based on our grandma's phone number.
-She used to answer the phone with the number.
Well, this one is for Grandma, then.
Let's see if five is in there.
Is it there in the code in the first box?
No. Is it there in the middle box?
-So many teams in this series seem to be picking the right
number first time out. That's exactly what you have done.
Five up there, front and centre, in the middle.
-But now it gets harder.
You've taken the words out of my mouth, and it does get harder now.
What happens now is you get three answers, as before,
but this time you only get to see two of the questions
before you have to commit and choose the correct answer.
-Fran and George, here are your next three answers.
The order in which you choose them now does become much more important.
-Notorious, the first one, it's...
But I feel like that might be
a bit obvious.
-OK. Do we know anything about Kilkenny?
It's obviously... Well, is it a name or a place?
-I just think of South Park.
-You think of South Park!
-Why am I thinking of that?
-I get why you're thinking of South Park
-but it's not that, it's two separate words.
It sounds like an Irish either place or name.
We're going to start with which one? BOTH: Notorious.
OK, let's open the question behind the notorious.
Well, obviously Christopher Wallace is Notorious B.I.G, so that's right.
And there is a film called Notorious,
which is a film about Notorious B.I.G.
And Ingrid Bergman. I don't think...
Alfred Hitchcock, is that The Birds?
-Yeah. The Birds or...
-But that doesn't rule it out.
-Let's open Rasputin, please.
The question behind Rasputin, please.
I've never heard of that.
See, I think because I've never heard
of the game, it makes sense that that would follow.
In my head now, I've only ever heard of, "Are you there, Rasputin?"
Involving two participants. So why would it be called Rasputin?
My gut instinct is that there is
a 2009 film biopic about Christopher Wallace,
-who is Notorious BIG.
-I'm 95% sure.
-Shall we go with Notorious?
-Let's go Notorious.
-And if I go out on the rap question then...
-Well, I don't know.
-Happy to lock it in?
-Happy to lock it in.
Can't change that now.
But we can have a look
-at the question behind Kilkenny.
-OK, you are happy with that, then.
We're happy. Not that we can change it.
-Exactly, cos it's locked in.
So we want this to go green.
Is Notorious the correct answer?
You didn't go out on a rap question.
I would have got so much stick.
You really would have done.
Yes, very well done. It's always useful
in this game to remember that every single question
has a correct answer. And you were debating whether or not there was a
Hitchcock film called Notorious.
There is. It's from 1946.
You mentioned Birds and Psycho.
So familiar with Hitchcock films, but not that particular one.
And, George, even before you saw the questions,
you were thinking along the lines
of The Notorious B.I.G., Biggie Smalls.
As soon as Christopher Wallace came up, that chimed for you,
you remembered that that was his name
and therefore that had to be the correct answer.
Rasputin, not the correct answer to this one.
It's a game that features in the book and the film One Day.
If you've seen that, you may have seen the characters playing that.
The correct answer, "Are you there, Moriarty?"
Never heard of it.
And Kilkenny, not correct.
Fran, when this came up, you knew straightaway
that the correct answer is Tipperary.
Yes. It may feel like you have come a long way, not quite to Tipperary.
But two questions down.
One number in your code so far,
you've earned yourself the right to choose another number from your
grandma's phone number.
Which one is it going to be next?
The number six. OK, let's find out, is six there in your code?
-Is it going to give you the second number in your code?
It's not. Is six there, in the third and final box?
-Not to worry.
-We're on a decent run.
It's good to get rid of numbers
when you are still at that middle stage of
the quiz. Fran, George, let's have a look at your next three answers.
-Let's do it.
Do you have much of a hunch
of Don't Talk To Me, as to what it might be?
-No, not really.
-Because it could be a quote from a film.
I think we should do Today.
-Shall we do Captain as well?
-OK, which one first?
Gosh, it's before either of us were born.
It definitely makes sense as a newspaper,
but it just doesn't feel right.
I feel like we might have heard of it.
OK, we need to open one more.
-Let's go Captain.
What are the other ranks in the Army?
-It feels right, doesn't it?
-Yeah, type of punishment.
OK, so that is wrong?
-That's it. Yeah.
-But then we... OK.
-Oh, but then...
Then we need to know about Today.
-So let's just start from basics.
-We are saying the bottom one is incorrect.
I don't think there is any way we're going to be able to work this out.
There's no way we're going to be able to work it out.
But I think, on my gut instinct,
that it's incorrect.
-Yeah, mine kind of is as well.
-So shall we go with Don't Talk To Me being right?
-On that basis...
-Are you happy with that?
-Yeah, let's do it.
We're going to lock in Don't Talk To Me.
There we go. We've locked in an answer where we can't see
the question. We are flying blind. Let's have a look at the question.
-We want a film quote.
-It was please talk to me.
-It was please talk to me.
You are feeling you might have hit the rocks there?
-OK, well, listen, you might be wrong.
Is Don't Talk To Me
our correct answer?
-You knew it, you knew it
as soon as it came up.
That's the difficulty of this stage of the game.
Let's find out which one was the correct answer.
Just a bit before your time,
-that's all it was.
-We would never have known that.
I'm not annoyed that that's what we
-went out on.
Bad luck. Yes, I think opening that question rather than
Don't Talk To Me was what did it for you.
Yes, Today, the newspaper, which finished in 1995.
So you can be forgiven for not being particularly familiar with it,
though it was a landmark in British newspaper history.
It was published in full colour,
which pushed other papers to do the same.
Let's look at the other questions.
Unfortunately, Don't Talk To Me
wasn't the right answer in this case.
The correct answer is "Please offer me a seat".
I think what you were remembering when you saw the question
was a story about an American man
who came to London trying to distribute badges
saying "Tube chat?"
Amongst unwilling Londoners
who really did not want to have a Tube chat.
Offer me a seat, the correct answer to that one.
Captain, not the right answer there.
Fran, you suggested thinking about what could be the alternative
answer. And, George, you came up with the correct answer,
which is corporal, as in corporal punishment.
Corporal is also a rank in the RAF, a non-commissioned rank.
Thank you, Leslie. Yes,
I was hoping when you were working through that and you came to the
answers so quickly, I thought, "OK, we're in here."
This can't be too difficult.
But unfortunately, if you just don't know the question...
-And that's the one you're relying on,
-there is no real way around it.
-You didn't get too far through your gran's phone number, I'm afraid.
But, listen, Fran and George,
on this occasion I have to say,
you have failed to crack the code and,
sadly, you have to leave the game.
-Lovely to meet you.
-Thank you, you too.
Oh, a little bit of knowledge from before Fran and George's time,
that's all it took, unfortunately.
However, their loss is our next team's gain
because another £500 is added
to the jackpot. So let's meet the next team hoping to crack the code.
Come on down.
Lovely to meet you, Jay. How are you?
-I'm fine, thank you.
-Hazel, how are you?
-I'm fine, thank you.
-So tell me a bit about yourself, Jay.
-What do you do for a living?
-Well, I'm a builder,
a partner in a construction company, mainly domestic conversions,
loft conversions and things like that.
Right. And how about you, Hazel?
I'm a primary school teacher.
-So I'm either in fancy dress covered in glitter or looking for
-something most peculiar.
-And that's before you get to school.
-And you are married? BOTH:
Tell me about your first date. How did that work out?
The first date was on Weston-Super-Mare pier.
-And we ended up going for a coffee
and we had a kiss at the end of the pier.
That's the place for these things, isn't it?
Yeah, we were ideally thinking, "Well,
"I wonder how many other piers there are to have a kiss on,"
and so we decided to embark on going around all of them.
So how many piers have you kissed on, Hazel?
In 2010, we had our 60th kiss
when we got married on our 60th pier,
which was Brighton.
What a wonderful way to see the country.
-Yeah. It is.
-The country in 60 kisses on 60 piers.
-It's lovely stuff.
Now, the team before you, Fran and George, a brother and sister,
failed to crack the code, which is not great news for them,
but better news, definitely,
for you because it means we add another £500 to the pot,
making a grand total of...
Which could go some way to funding your next pier trip.
-It could work out very well.
Maybe that's not what you're thinking. Anyway, Jay, Hazel,
let's reset the code.
There we go. Three blanks there that you want to turn into the three
numbers of your code. If you do that, the safe will open,
you win the money, which is what we all want to happen.
If you're ready, Jay and Hazel,
let's have a look at your first three answers.
We'll start at the top.
The question behind Paul Potts,
That sounds as though it could be right.
-Shall we have a look at the next one?
-I think we need to.
-Let's get the bigger picture.
The question behind Drone, please.
-That sounds more...
That does sound very plausible.
-And the last one.
The question behind Grouse Water.
I love that.
I think maybe that would be brilliant at school.
That's gripe water with a hint of...
That's definitely wrong. I would say it's going to be Drone,
-What is the UAV?
Is it an aerial vehicle?
-Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, isn't it?
-That's a drone, and that low humming sound is a drone.
I think we're going to go for Drone.
You think we're going for Drone?
-What do you think?
-I bow to your superior knowledge.
-We'll go for Drone.
-Yeah, we're going to go for Drone.
-Drone it is.
Taking the lead on this one, Jay.
Let's lock in Drone.
Let's hope it's correct.
If it is, it will turn green.
Is Drone our correct answer?
Yes, it is.
Well done. Well done, Jay and Hazel.
-Yes, well done.
Hazel, you said aerial might be in the middle of UAV and, Jay,
you came in with the rest.
An Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, being a drone.
Let's look at the Paul Potts question now.
Paul Potts was working in the Carphone Warehouse when he was on
Britain's Got Talent, when he sang Nessun Dorma
and then came to fame.
The correct answer is Alfie Boe.
Alfie Boe was working as an apprentice mechanic,
he was singing some opera,
a customer heard him and suggested he go to an audition,
and the rest is history.
Grouse Water, not the right answer.
You both knew this one.
Hazel, you said gripe water.
The correct answer - Gripe Water, containing fennel and dill.
Used to contain alcohol, but doesn't any more, in the UK, at least.
Thank you, Leslie. Yeah, that would placate your class, wouldn't it?
-Strictly speaking illegal, of course.
OK, Drone - you're correct answer there, Jay and Hazel -
gets you the chance to choose a number
to see if it's there in the code.
-Which one do you want to choose?
-Are we going to go for what we'd said
-Oh, I think we should.
OK. We're going to go for my birthday.
Cos it's got six different numbers.
Oh, OK. So Jay's birthday.
Right. Where are we going to start, then?
Numerical order or backwards?
I'm not doing it backwards. Two.
-OK, the number two.
Is it there in our code?
It's not there. Is it there in the second box?
No number two. Is there a two in the third and final box?
-No number two.
-You're happy with that?
-Very good. Yeah.
-We want to carry on playing at the easy level.
Count the numbers down.
-Right, let's have a look at your next set of answers.
Let's see the question behind Perdita.
I happen to know that is correct.
I was going to say, you'd know that one.
That is right. Yeah.
-Perdita it was.
That will speed things up considerably.
We're still going to look at the other questions.
The question behind Chris Boardman.
-It wasn't Chris Boardman.
-No. That was Carl Fogarty, wasn't it?
I'm sure that was Carl Fogarty.
-OK. And the question behind Tasmania.
I don't know which that is, but it's not Tasmania.
-Yeah, OK. Right, so we're going to lock in the top one.
You're going to lock in one of those. Which one will it be?
Top one, please. Perdita.
If it is correct, it'll go green.
We get to choose another number from Jay's birthday.
Is Perdita our correct answer?
Yeah, you knew that as soon as it came out.
You suddenly start to doubt it, though.
No, no. Don't doubt it.
Stay strong, Hazel.
-Yes, well done.
You knew immediately that Perdita is the correct answer.
Perdita from Winter's Tale and from 101 Dalmatians.
At least in the Disney film.
In the book, she's not called Perdita, that's a different dog.
And Pongo's mate is called Missus.
Chris Boardman, you were happy with this one, Hazel.
You said the correct answer too, that's Carl Fogarty.
Chris Boardman, better associated with bicycles
rather than motorbikes.
Tasmania, not the right answer.
You couldn't remember the correct answer to this one.
The correct answer is Mauritius, the former home of the dodo.
Thank you, Leslie. Yes, it's lovely to see you two so certain.
So confident about your answers so early on.
If you'd just choose the correct answer first each time,
that's really going to help us.
-It doesn't necessarily work that way.
However, it does mean you get a second chance to choose
-a number from your birthday, Jay.
Which one is it going to be next? Two is gone. Where next?
It's going to be number seven.
The number seven. Is it there in your code?
Let's have a look. Is it there in the first box?
No. Is it there in the second box?
No number seven. Is it that there in the third and final box?
-No number seven.
-What a shame(!)
"Oh, dear," or "Oh, yes!"?
OK, two and seven gone.
Two questions gone, still playing at the easiest level.
That's what we like.
Let's have a look now at your next three questions.
We'll start at the top.
The question behind Orange Juice.
I'm not dancing it.
It's not her orange juice,
it's her milkshake,
I think you will find.
OK. Let's have a look at the question behind Like.
Oh, no, I need the dog.
-You need the dog?
-I need the dog. My dog has a Twitter account.
-Your dog has a Twitter account?
-My dog has a Twitter account, yes.
He's got nearly 4,700 followers.
And he would know the answer?
He'd know the answer to this.
Well, listen, he's not here, sadly.
-Shall we have a look at the question behind Snow?
I'm pretty sure that, on Twitter,
it's a heart shape
-for liking something.
-So he tells me.
-Snow sounds the most obvious.
I think it must be Snow, then.
Yeah, definitely not Orange Juice.
Pretty sure it is not Like, so we're going to go with Snow.
-OK, we'll go with Snow.
It is locked in, we can't change it now.
If Snow is correct, it means that Jay and Hazel get the chance
to put a third number into the code,
see if it is there.
They're skilfully avoiding the numbers of the code at the moment.
Is Snow the correct answer?
Another safe one. We felt we were safe all the way through there.
-Yes, very well done.
You were happy with the wrong answers.
And Snow had to be the correct answer to that question.
There are mountain ranges in the Sahara
where snow isn't that uncommon,
but it is very uncommon in the sandy areas.
Orange Juice, just not the right answer.
Hazel, you came in with the correct answer to this one.
It is milkshake.
It brings all the boys to the yard.
I could teach you, but I'd have to charge.
not the correct answer to this one.
That is retweet.
Well done. Congratulations.
You're making excellent progress.
Yes, thank you, Leslie.
You are. You are doing brilliantly, Jay and Hazel.
Now it is time to pick another number.
Two and seven, gone. Nothing up there in the code.
-Where are we going to go next?
-We are going to go with zero.
The number zero. Is zero there in the first box?
It's not. Is zero there in the second box?
No. Is zero there in the third and final box?
-Is this part of the plan, Jay and Hazel?
-Is this what you wanted?
-Happy to keep playing the game at this stage
-where you can see the whole picture?
OK. Let's carry on, then.
Let's keep going.
Have a look at your next three answers.
-See what they've done there?
Let's start at the top with Exe or E-X-E.
-Exmouth is the Exe.
-Yeah, that's right.
Isn't one of them the Plym?
It's not at the mouth because surely the Exe comes out down there,
runs through Exeter and down.
-That's what I'm thinking.
-too far away from Plymouth, isn't it?
Let's have a look at the next question, the one behind Eagle.
-I thought there was an Angela Eagle.
-There is an Eagle.
There's an Angela Eagle.
-I'm not... I can't say I've...
-I don't know.
I'm not sure about Maria Eagle, but there is definitely an Angela.
Let's have a look at the question behind Ian Wright.
No, it wasn't Ian Wright.
-No, I'm sure it wasn't Ian Wright.
I know you know your football.
-I can't think who it was, but that doesn't...
OK, we've got three there.
One of them must be correct.
Well, I'm pretty sure that Plymouth isn't on the Exe.
-OK, well, then...
-So it's got to be...
-We're going to go for the middle one.
-It has got to be Eagle.
Hasn't it? The middle one. OK.
-Let's go for it.
-The middle one, then.
-We're going to lock in Eagle
as our correct answer.
If it's wrong, I'm afraid that's it.
Our little journey together is over.
Is Eagle our correct answer?
-Well done, well done.
-Gosh, that was a good guess.
-A bit more of a wobble there.
Leslie, talk us through it.
Yes, well done, Jay.
You'd heard of Angela Eagle,
who made a bid for the Labour leadership.
Her twin, Maria, not quite so well known.
Exe, the wrong answers here.
Hazel, you knew that Exe wasn't correct.
You said that was on Exmouth.
And you came up with the correct answer, which is Plym.
And Jay showing excellent complementary knowledge here,
both working together.
Jay, you lead the way with the Ian Wright question,
knew that that wasn't correct.
The correct answer is Kevin Phillips.
It is awarded for the player who scores the most goals
in the top division
of a European country.
Thank you, Leslie. Yes, the Venn diagram is working beautifully.
-Complementary circles of knowledge.
Two, seven and zero have gone.
Which would you like to try next?
It's getting harder now, isn't it?
-Number one next, says Jay.
Let's see if it's up there in the code.
Let's have a look. Is it in the first box?
No number one. Is it there in the second box?
Still no number one.
Is there in the third and final box?
-It had to happen eventually.
We had to hit on one.
The number one up there in the third box of your code.
Now, let's look where you are.
Three, four, five, six, eight
and nine still remain.
Now, of course, though, the quiz
does get a little bit trickier because,
as before, we see three answers,
but this time only two questions
before we have to commit and decide which one is correct.
It does make a difference.
Let's have a look at your next three answers.
The order in which you open these now becomes very important.
Old Kent Road, I'm immediately thinking Monopoly.
Monopoly, yeah. Or London.
-Or London, general.
-Kidneys. Well, that is either food or biology.
-Yeah, that sounds OK.
-I could go with that one as well.
-Shah Jahan, I have no idea.
OK. So maybe go for...the top one?
-Old Kent Road?
-Yeah, Old Kent Road.
Yeah, OK. We'll go for Old Kent Road.
The question behind Old Kent Road, please.
-Well, that's correct.
-It's got to be.
-Old Kent Road is Elephant and Castle.
-I don't know. Is it?
-Which is south of the river.
-I knew your London knowledge
-would come in really handy here.
-That's got to be correct.
Jay feeling confident there.
-Which questions next?
-Kidneys next. OK.
That's OK, I know that one. That answer is wrong.
Cos the alveoli are found in the lungs.
-They're the little tiny air sacks in the lungs.
We need to lock in one of these as the correct answer.
-I think you're...
I know you know your London.
We'd like to lock in Old Kent Road as our correct answer.
Now we've done that, we can have a look at the question
behind Shah Jahan.
No. No, that was...
I can see him.
Can't think of the name, but no, it is definitely wrong.
-He won't mind.
In any case, it's academic.
You've locked in Old Kent Road as your correct answer.
We want that to turn green.
Is Old Kent Road the correct answer?
-Of course it is.
-Well done, you.
Of course it is. Well done, you, yeah, exactly.
-Yes, very well done, Jay.
There is a Leslie point if anyone can tell me how much you have to pay
to buy that space.
-£60 is the right answer.
The next answer on the board there, Shah Jahan,
not the right answer. He was around in the 17th century,
so far too late to be correct.
I think the correct answer here is on the tip of your tongue, Jay,
-have you remembered it yet?
It is Genghis Khan.
-Genghis Khan, the great emperor...
-..of the Mongol Empire.
-Kidneys, not right, Hazel.
No messing around with this one,
you knew that the correct answer is the lungs.
It is working very, very well.
How about the numbers, though?
What is the plan? Do we like where we are,
-or do we want to find another one now?
-I'd rather not choose another one.
I think we'd like another blank, another red number.
Is this where I forget how old you are?
-The wrong year of birth.
I'm not going to do that. I'm going to go five, please.
The number five.
Is five there in our code?
Let's have a look. In the first box...
-So, after a slow start...
..successfully avoiding the numbers in the code,
-suddenly we get two in a row.
-Not what we wanted.
Five, blank, one.
And we've got five numbers left on the keypad,
but this is a great chance.
It is a great chance.
-You know, you can get lucky, get one question right,
pick one number, and that's it.
£3,500 coming your way.
But it does make things that little bit more difficult.
-Because you only get to see the questions one at a time before
committing to whether they are right or wrong.
Really much trickier.
-You can do it.
-We like a challenge.
Yes. Let's have a look
at our next three answers.
Right. The order in which you choose them, of course, now critical.
They could all be dances, couldn't they?
Funky Pigeon, that's more likely to be online cards,
like greeting cards...
It could be a dance, it could be a single.
Mashed Potatoes. That could be a dance.
-That could be a dance.
-It could be food.
Makemake could be a dance.
Never heard of it. Makemake!
Don't know. Mashed Potatoes?
-OK. OK, Mashed Potatoes.
Let's see if this is about food.
The question behind Mashed Potatoes, please.
Fantastic. End of the pier stuff here.
-So if that's wrong...
It has to be. Then we know that isn't right.
-We're going to discard it.
We're going to discard Mashed Potatoes as a wrong answer.
There it goes, it's out of play.
We can't come back to that.
Now we have to choose between Makemake
and Funky Pigeon.
-Let's go with Funky Pigeon.
We are going to open the question behind Funky Pigeon.
don't think so.
I don't. It doesn't...
Doesn't feel right, does it?
-I have not heard of it.
No, and I think there would have been a lot of jokes about it,
having that name.
-If that was the case.
I think if that one is wrong, and I think the Makemake must be right.
-The right one.
That's where I'm going.
I don't...I don't like the feel of that last question.
What we have to do now is lock in what we think is the correct answer.
-We think, then, Makemake is the right one.
Makemake? We want to lock in Makemake as the correct answer.
There it is. It's locked in, we can't change it,
but we can have a look at the question
and see if it makemakes any sense.
-Gosh, that sounds...
-That sounds more like it, doesn't it?
If you'd seen all three of those together,
-is that the one you would have gone with?
-Listen, I really hope,
I really hope that that is the case.
You've worked your way through that absolutely brilliantly.
One question at a time.
Did you think you'd make it this far?
-Well, you have! You have!
-We don't want this to be the end of the pier show.
We want it to be the beginning of something beautiful.
It can only be that if Makemake is the correct answer.
-One question at a time, it's incredibly difficult.
You are doing so well, guys.
-Yes, very well done.
You are working together as a team,
and settled on the correct answer there. Makemake.
Probably the largest dwarf planet in the Khyber belt,
it was discovered not long after Easter,
so they originally called it the Easter Bunny.
That wouldn't do for a formal name for the planet,
so they named it after a Polynesian god which used to be worshipped
on Easter Island. So there is still an Easter connection.
Mashed Potatoes, not the right answer here.
Yes, end of the pier stuff.
Couldn't be more perfect for you.
The correct answer is sausages.
Mr Punch often fighting a crocodile over a string of sausages.
Funky Pigeon, not the right answer.
The correct answer, it didn't matter that you didn't know this,
it is the Fancy Bear group.
Can't say too much about them, because they are very secretive.
They claim to be an international hacking group.
-It rings a bell now.
-Very well done.
Just one question has got us to the brink of something terrific here.
There are five digits remaining to choose from.
I don't know how many there are left in your birthday, Jay.
-Which number do you want?
I'm not saying anything here. This is your choice.
If I say anything, it's going to be wrong.
Well, it's got to be the last one in the birthday, which is eight.
Eight. Who is going to join me at the safe?
-Looks like you've just been volunteered.
-I volunteered. It's me.
In that case, Jay, let's take a little walk to the end of the pier,
-you and me.
-Here we go.
Jay and Hazel, you've chosen the number eight.
If eight is the final number, in your code,
today you will be going home with £3,500.
Jay, are you ready?
Punch in the number eight.
There it goes. Round and round, five, eight, one.
That is the code that we're looking forward to.
That's what we want to see.
Eight in that middle box means Hazel and Jay can go to any pier in the
world for a snog.
That's what we want.
It's not the number eight. It's not the number eight.
-More work to do, but we are equal to this.
Jay, let's go back, let's join Hazel.
Let's brace ourselves, deep breaths.
-It was too good to be true.
It was too good to be true. One down,
that's exactly the way to look at it.
Now, look, only four numbers left.
Three, four, six, nine. One of them must be up there in the code.
-Yeah, and we're going to keep going until we find it.
Let's have a look at your next three answers.
Well, Dido is probably going to be
-She was a goddess as well, wasn't she?
-She was a goddess, yeah.
Um... But then I thought Aeneas was as well.
-And Two Hearts?
Gosh, that could be anything.
-I don't know.
It's more likely to be music or...
OK. Could be Doctor Who.
-He's got two hearts.
-Yeah, let's go for Two Hearts.
-Right. Two Hearts.
We'd like to have a look at
the question behind Two Hearts.
Gosh. Um, um, um...
-I'm totally stumped on that.
I've never played bridge in my life.
I can't remember which suit is the most...
Clubs are high, aren't they?
I thought hearts were high.
It's a choice of the four, isn't it?
-Whether it's heart, clubs...
-I thought that clubs and spades...
-So I thought the reds were low, so...
-It think it's more likely to be right...
In which case, I think we just...
Go blind on the first one?
-We have to go blind and...
-I think we're going to take it as correct.
-Take it as correct.
-You want to take that...
-And that is a complete punt.
...as your correct answer.
We can't change it, but we can have a look at the question...
Just want to move on. Just...
Let's have another question.
Unfortunately, we can't get past this one.
-We have to deal with it.
-Yeah. She had White Flag and...
She did do two.
I thought the other one came a bit further on.
I thought it was a bit later.
-OK. I would probably sort of said no on that one.
Have a look at the question behind Aeneas.
Oh, no. That could be possible.
Son of Priam? Was that...?
Oh, I think I know who that is.
It comes up in crossword clues a lot.
I don't think that is right.
-Yeah. Well, how does it make you feel about Two Hearts there?
A little bit better.
Yeah. I think it's more 50-50 between the top and bottom.
Yeah, no, we're confident it's right.
Good. Is Two Hearts our correct answer?
I'm not going to look.
I thought it was written in the stars, Two Hearts.
-Your wonderful story, I thought that was it.
Oh, no. Oh, well.
It wasn't to be. Let's find out the correct answer.
-It was Dido.
It was Dido.
Really bad luck there.
Dido, the correct answer.
Her albums, No Angel and Life For Rent.
Her full name, she says,
is Dido Florian Cloud de Bounevialle O'Malley Armstrong.
But we just put Dido up on the board.
Aeneas, not the right answer there.
The correct answer is Hector, cousin of Aeneas.
He was killed by Achilles outside the gates of Troy.
And Two Hearts, not the correct answer there.
There is at least one bid that has to be lower than two hearts,
which is one heart.
But one heart is still not the correct answer.
The suits in the bridge go from bottom to top, clubs, diamonds,
hearts and spades.
The correct answer then is one club.
I'm really sorry. Came unstuck there
-because you don't play bridge.
Yes, I was desperately hoping it was going to be that Doctor Who
-..and it was...
-That would've been brilliant.
-..written in the stars.
What was the number you were going to go for next?
Well, that's my birthday, so we've used that.
-We've done that.
-So you would have chosen the next one.
I'd have gone with six.
Number six, let's see what your final code was.
Kind of a sickener if it is.
-OK. That's all right.
-So, we had a little bit of work to do.
Jay, Hazel, hearing your story was absolutely lovely.
But I have to say, on this occasion, Jay and Hazel,
you failed to crack the code and so we have to say goodbye to you,
and wish you all the best.
-Jay, really lovely to meet you.
-Lovely to meet you.
Just too much PIER pressure.
Maybe that's what it was, they couldn't handle it.
Poor old Jay and Hazel.
But I don't think they are too damaged.
I think they're fine. They're strong.
As we always say, it's an easy game to play, but a hard game to win,
as Jay and Hazel have just demonstrated.
Good news for our next contestants, though,
as the jackpot goes up another £500, making a total of £4,000.
That is all we have time for today.
-Leslie, thank you so much.
And, Matt, you know, I want everyone to win.
But it just shows you how complementary knowledge
can take you really far in this game.
They just came up against something that they didn't know.
If you don't know, you don't know.
Well, to be sure to join us tomorrow
when a new team will discover if they have what it takes
to crack the code and win the cash.
Thanks for watching. Goodbye.
Brother and sister Fran and George from Cheshire see if their combined sibling knowledge is enough to crack the code and take home the cash.
