-We might need to organise one.

-"Might"?

0:14:570:15:04

-Where does "might" feature in this?

-I'd be asking what your opinion...

-I'd have moved from Oswestry by now!

0:15:040:15:10

You have a choice. Why have you voted for Bridie?

0:15:100:15:14

She was the first one to get a question wrong.

0:15:140:15:17

-She MIGHT have been the first one?

-She might have been.

0:15:170:15:23

0:15:230:15:27

-I'd like to stick with Bridie.

-Bridie, you are the weakest link. Goodbye.

0:15:270:15:32

I was very nervous when I saw Anne coming on, but I really don't think she's a meanie.

0:15:360:15:42

She's playing a game. She comes on, she's very stern and she doesn't look at anybody,

0:15:420:15:47

but she can't help smiling when she asks you questions. I think she's lovely underneath.

0:15:470:15:53

Stuart.

0:19:350:19:37

Charlotte.

0:19:380:19:40

Charlotte.

0:19:400:19:42

Charlotte.

AS FRANK SPENCER: Good evening and how are you today?

0:20:460:20:49

-No, there's only one you, Anne.

0:20:490:20:53

Right answer. Why Charlotte?

0:20:530:20:56

Unfortunately, she had a bad round. She got a "pass" and a question wrong.

0:20:560:21:01

-So, Oliver, the travel agent...

-I'm not a travel agent.

0:21:010:21:05

0:21:250:21:32

I think it was fair that I got voted off instead of Stuart in this particular round

0:21:350:21:41

because I got more questions wrong than he did,

0:21:410:21:44

but his performance as a whole has been worse, so I don't think he'll last much longer.

0:21:440:21:49

0:24:430:24:47

With the most wrong answers, the weakest link is Paul.

0:24:490:24:53

The strongest link statistically is Emma, but will the team notice that?

0:24:530:24:58

Voting over. It's time to reveal who you think is the weakest link.

0:25:000:25:04

Adi.

Oliver.

0:25:080:25:10

Oliver.

0:25:100:25:12

Paul.

0:25:130:25:15

Paul.

Paul.

0:25:480:25:54

Round 5. Your total now is £2,320. Another ten seconds off the time.

0:25:560:26:01

We'll start with the strongest link from the last round. That's Emma. Let's play the Weakest Link.

-He didn't answer any questions correctly.

0:29:240:29:30

Adi, you are the weakest link. Goodbye.

0:29:300:29:33

Being voted off on the Weakest Link at this stage is a bit of a surprise

0:29:370:29:42

because I thought I'd probably go in Round 3 or 4.

0:29:420:29:45

To get to Round 5 is a bonus. It would have been nice to win.

0:29:450:29:50

-Tate Modern.

-Bank!

0:32:180:32:20

Time's up. The correct answer was the National Gallery.

0:32:200:32:24

And you only won £20.

0:32:240:32:27

So, perhaps Stuart's window of opportunity has closed.

0:32:270:32:32

Is Emma an occupational hazard?

0:32:320:32:36

Should John be parked? Or do you need a holiday from Oliver?

0:32:360:32:41

Time to vote off the weakest link.

0:32:410:32:43

Emma is the strongest link because she didn't get an answer wrong.

0:32:440:32:49

Statistically, the weakest link is Oliver, but will the other players realise that?

0:32:490:32:55

Voting over. It's time to reveal who you think is the weakest link.

0:32:560:33:02

Oliver.

0:33:030:33:05

John.

0:33:060:33:08

Stuart.

0:33:080:33:10

Stuart.

Me? OK.

0:33:310:33:33

-Why have you voted for Stuart?

-Because I can't vote for myself.

0:33:330:33:38

Stuart, you are the weakest link. Goodbye.

0:33:380:33:41

I think Emma will probably get voted off by the two guys that's left.

0:33:450:33:49

There's been a bit of tactical voting throughout, here and there.

0:33:490:33:53

I think perhaps Oliver has been predominantly the weakest link throughout.
