Here are the nine celebrities preparing for tonight's show.

0:00:020:00:06

Only one of them can win up to £50,000 for charity.

0:00:060:00:09

The others will leave with nothing as one by one they're voted off as the Weakest Link.

0:00:090:00:15

Welcome to a celebrity edition of the Weakest Link.

0:00:280:00:33

The nine people in the studio tonight are all sporting heroes.

0:00:330:00:38

Half of them are knights of the realm.

0:00:380:00:42

But tonight, they're playing by my rules,

0:00:430:00:48

so a very unfair fight.

0:00:480:00:50

LAUGHTER

0:00:500:00:52

Anyway, they could win up to £50,000 for charity.

0:00:520:00:56

If they want that prize money, our contestants will have to work as a team.

0:00:560:01:01

I'm Lee Pearson, nine times Paralympic gold medallist.

You had a chain of nine correct answers,

0:06:410:06:45

so, of course, without any trouble whatsoever, you could have reached your £5,000 target.

0:06:450:06:51

In that first round, Sporting Heroes...

0:06:510:06:56

Does anyone know how to pronounce "B-A-N-K"?

0:07:020:07:08

0:07:290:07:34

Voting over. It's time to reveal who you think is the Weakest Link.

0:07:400:07:46

Tom.

0:07:480:07:50

Alex.

0:07:500:07:52

Tom.

0:07:520:07:54

Alex.

0:07:540:07:56

Alex.

0:07:560:07:58

Alex.

0:07:580:08:00

Gazza.

0:08:000:08:02

-Alex.

-Alex.

0:08:020:08:06

-'Enry...

-Yes?

-We've spelt your name wrong, haven't we?

0:08:090:08:13

You've spelt my name wrong? I can't see it.

0:08:130:08:16

It's got an H on the beginning.

0:08:170:08:20

Oh, I see. LAUGHTER

0:08:200:08:22

So you know when you knocked Muhammad Ali down...?

0:08:240:08:28

-Yes.

-Why didn't you knock him again and keep him down?

0:08:280:08:32

He was falling on the ropes and I couldn't get to him quick enough.

0:08:320:08:37

-You were too slow?

-Well, put it that way, yeah.

0:08:370:08:40

And after your boxing career was over, you did that ad with Kevin Keegan?

0:08:410:08:47

Yeah, mm-hm.

0:08:470:08:49

-Just a little towel on?

-Splash it all over. Good stuff, yeah.

0:08:490:08:54

-With Kevin?

-Big, strong boy and splash it all over.

0:08:540:08:57

-Did you and Kevin become very close after that?

-Yes.

0:08:570:09:01

We certainly did. We were in the shower quite often.

0:09:010:09:05

Can you tell us a boxing joke?

0:09:080:09:10

-A boxing joke?

-Yeah.

-I don't joke about that.

0:09:100:09:14

APPLAUSE

0:09:160:09:18

Why Alex?

0:09:210:09:23

Well, I think he was the first one to get his answer wrong and he didn't give me a chance to say "bank".

0:09:240:09:31

If I'd have remembered!

0:09:310:09:34

So, Sir Chris, four times Olympic champ...

0:09:370:09:42

-Has your bike got an engine?

-I wish it would sometimes, to be honest.

0:09:430:09:48

-That's not what you're most famous for, is it?

-I've no idea. You have to tell me what I am famous for.

0:09:480:09:54

Just move over to your left.

0:09:540:09:57

-God, they're big!

-LAUGHTER

0:09:570:10:00

Turn... No, no, no. We haven't had a proper look. Turn sideways.

0:10:030:10:07

-This way or that way?

-They're big both sides, aren't they?

0:10:070:10:11

Pull your trousers tight at the top.

0:10:110:10:14

-Will you do the same for me?

-Yeah. Move over.

0:10:140:10:17

-How wide are they?

-I believe they're 67 centimetres.

0:10:170:10:22

-That's what the papers say. For the circumference.

-Just stay there.

0:10:220:10:26

-Are they useful for cycling, being that big?

-It's your engine, so it does you no harm to have big legs.

0:10:290:10:36

I mean, compared to Alex... Just move over, Alex.

0:10:360:10:40

-Ah! Move up here. We can't see...

-You don't need big legs for snooker.

0:10:410:10:45

Yeah. That's it.

0:10:450:10:48

OK, behind your podiums, guys.

0:10:500:10:53

-And you know all that cycling?

-Yeah.

-When I watch you, it worries me.

0:10:550:11:00

-Why?

-Is there a lot of chafing down there?

0:11:000:11:04

No, no, it's... Thanks for your concern.

0:11:040:11:08

But you wear special shorts and you have saddles shaped to fit you, so it's not too bad.

0:11:080:11:14

I only ride for a few seconds. If you ride in the Tour de France, it's a bit sore.

0:11:140:11:19

-You don't put Vaseline down there?

-Some guys do, yeah.

0:11:190:11:23

-What do you do?

-I just go dry.

0:11:230:11:26

LAUGHTER

0:11:260:11:28

-Why Alex?

-It had to be either him or Tom because they got their questions wrong.

0:11:310:11:36

-Alex missed the "bank". We could have got £5,000.

-So sorry.

0:11:360:11:40

-But it's tough because everyone's nice here.

-I'm not nice.

-We can't vote for you though.

0:11:400:11:46

So, Alex...

0:11:490:11:52

It was a line tonight, wasn't it?

0:11:520:11:54

They didn't call you Hurricane because of your brain?

0:11:570:12:01

-No, but I've no excuses.

-No.

-I was a little bit flustered.

-Were you?

-Yeah.

0:12:010:12:07

Maybe for a lot of your life, Monday didn't exist perhaps?

0:12:070:12:12

For a lot of my life, the whole week didn't exist.

0:12:140:12:18

APPLAUSE

0:12:180:12:20

And I'm certainly embarrassed to fall at the first hurdle.

0:12:260:12:32

Or even at the table.

0:12:320:12:35

But it was a pleasure.

0:12:350:12:37

Alex, you are the Weakest Link. Goodbye.

0:12:370:12:40

APPLAUSE

0:12:410:12:43

I'm embarrassed, um...

0:12:510:12:53

About me, because I thought I was quite decent at general knowledge.

0:12:540:12:59

So I'm in for...

0:12:590:13:01

..some stick.

0:13:020:13:05

Round 2, Sporting Heroes,

0:13:080:13:11

0:17:150:17:18

Gazza.

0:17:180:17:20

Tom.

0:17:200:17:22

Tom.

0:17:220:17:25

-So, Lee...

-Yes, Anne?

0:17:280:17:31

You said, as you could control half a tonne of horse, it'll be easy to control me.

0:17:310:17:38

Do you want a ride?

0:17:380:17:40

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:17:400:17:43

On one of my horses.

-Have you got a big display cabinet?

0:17:540:17:58

-Where are they?

-In a safe in a separate house.

0:17:580:18:02

How many medals has the horse got?

0:18:020:18:05

I've had three different horses for the three Games I've done, so they are all triple gold medallists.

0:18:050:18:11

-They do all the work, don't they?

-My bottom does a little bit of work.

-But not as much as the horses do.

0:18:110:18:18

-I could sit on top of those horses and get the gold medals, couldn't I?

-Quite possibly.

0:18:180:18:24

-What's your favourite horse called?

-Gentleman.

-Really?

-Hmm.

0:18:240:18:29

-Is it easy to mount Gentleman?

There's usually a group of us together to get me on.

0:18:340:18:38

Absolutely no problems though.

0:18:390:18:42

-Why Tom?

-I think he's got a few questions wrong now,

0:18:420:18:47

so Tom was unfortunately my decision.

0:18:470:18:51

-You're just picking on a fellow Olympian, aren't you?

-There's somebody younger than me.

0:18:510:18:58

So, Sally, you don't know the difference between army and artillery?

0:18:580:19:03

No. It was a very long question and I sort of got lost in the middle of it all.

0:19:030:19:08

Where are you from?

0:19:080:19:10

Chigwell in Essex. Good Essex girl.

0:19:100:19:13

-You grew up there, did you?

-I did.

0:19:140:19:16

It must have been difficult running with big earrings and stilettos.

0:19:160:19:21

Very tricky, very tricky. But it got me on my toes to go over the hurdles.

0:19:210:19:26

-A bag of chips in your hand?

-The lot, yeah.

0:19:260:19:29

-What are you doing now?

-What do I do now? Lots of things. I'm a mum of three little boys.

0:19:290:19:36

I do a lot of motivational speaking and charity things and television things, so, yeah, keeping busy.

0:19:360:19:42

Wouldn't it be better if you were a postie cos you could jump over the hedges?

0:19:420:19:47

I'll maybe have to do that in a few years' time. Who knows?

0:19:470:19:51

-Why Tom?

-Really just because he got one of the questions wrong in the round before.

0:19:510:19:57

I did give him a little kiss on the bottom, so didn't really want to pick on him.

0:19:570:20:02

Tom, did you enjoy Sally giving you a kiss on the bottom?

0:20:030:20:08

LAUGHTER

0:20:080:20:12

Um...yes, Anne.

0:20:120:20:15

So can you just move off your podium to your right, please?

0:20:170:20:22

Oh, no, no.

0:20:230:20:26

Couldn't you do a sort of double pike, half twist somersault?

0:20:260:20:30

-Yeah. Hmm.

-OK. Move up towards Matthew.

0:20:300:20:34

Are you still growing?

0:20:400:20:42

-I think so, yeah.

-Do you think one day you'll be as big as Matthew?

0:20:420:20:47

-Don't wish for that.

-..No.

0:20:470:20:50

OK... Hop up again.

0:20:500:20:53

You're in the Olympics. Does that help pull the girlfriends?

0:20:540:20:58

You get a lot more attention. You have to say that, yeah.

0:20:580:21:03

And when you were at the Olympics,

0:21:030:21:06

what was more frightening?

0:21:060:21:09

Good. Guess what, Tom? You are the Weakest Link. Goodbye.

0:21:200:21:24

APPLAUSE

0:21:240:21:27

I definitely think I'm a lot taller than Anne because Anne's very, very short.

0:21:290:21:34

She stood on a really tall podium.

0:21:340:21:37

And to stand next to Matt, Matt is six foot five-odd, so he's very tall compared to me.

Geoff... We think your podium might be broken.

0:25:560:26:01

It's stuck on "Gazza", is it?

0:26:010:26:03

I find it very difficult to vote anybody off. They're all great sporting heroes.

0:26:030:26:09

He's in my profession and a wind-up merchant, so I thought I'd start with him until one of us breaks.

0:26:090:26:16

-He's very kind to me. He's already given up.

-I have. He's doing well.

0:26:160:26:20

0:26:210:26:29

Well, Gazza's one of the great players of that era, the '90s.

0:26:290:26:34

But he can also take a joke and a laugh. That's why I decided to...

0:26:340:26:39

-You didn't want him to play for France in '98.

0:26:390:26:45

Not at all, no.

I'm sure you said "for France". I wanted him to play if we played in the final cos he's a great player.

0:27:050:27:10

-Come on, just show us what it was like. Move forward. OK.

0:27:100:27:16

-Hooray!

0:27:180:27:20

You never lose it.

0:27:240:27:26

-You're still here.

-I know, it's incredible, seeing as I'm a thick Geordie.

0:27:320:27:38

-Why have you been voting for him?

-Just the once. His pen's automatic "Gazza". It's got to change.

0:27:380:27:44

I had a... What do you call it? ..lump in my throat when Alex got voted off.

0:27:440:27:50

It's terrible, this show. I feel like crying when someone gets voted off.

0:27:500:27:54

-You're not gonna start crying again?

-It depends how much money I need. If I cry, I can make a few bob.

0:27:540:28:00

And just move over towards Chris.

0:28:010:28:04

Come forward. I mean, you're quite skinny. Are you fit?

0:28:040:28:09

I'm fit as... Oh, nearly said it!

0:28:090:28:12

LAUGHTER

0:28:120:28:14

Mind, we did have the chance once and I turned you down. I was mad.

0:28:140:28:18

-Sorry, when did we have the chance?

-Remember?

-No, I don't remember.

0:28:180:28:23

Come on, Gazza, we were in the gym together.

0:28:240:28:27

I didn't know I had a chance. I would've been off that treadmill fast!

0:28:270:28:32

You should've seen how quick I pedalled as well when I seen you!

And you said in a country that has so many sheep you couldn't understand why.

0:29:080:29:15

Yeah, it wasn't only that bad - I thought I was in Australia.

0:29:150:29:21

-Why do you want to get rid of Henry?

-I didn't want to vote for Henry because I don't want knocked out.

0:29:230:29:29

I didn't want to vote for anybody. it's just one of these shows.

0:29:290:29:34

I put Henry, but I wouldn't put it next to him.

0:29:340:29:39

So, Henry, lost on points in the third round. You are the Weakest Link. Goodbye.

0:29:390:29:45

Well, the Walk of Shame, you don't want to do it,

0:29:540:29:58

0:29:580:30:01

0:37:460:37:51

Time's up and you won £1,000.

0:37:530:37:56

So who's now an icon and who's an "I can't"?

0:37:560:38:01

Who's A Question of Sport and who's very, very questionable?

0:38:030:38:08

Time to vote off the Weakest Link.

0:38:080:38:11

Paul is the Weakest Link as he gave the most wrong answers.

0:38:120:38:16

Sally is the Strongest Link, but how will the votes go?

0:38:160:38:21

Voting over. It's time to reveal who you think is the Weakest Link.

0:38:220:38:27

Geoff.

0:38:270:38:29

Lee.

0:38:310:38:33

Lee.

0:38:340:38:36

Oh, Gazza.

0:38:370:38:38

Geoff.

0:38:400:38:42

Another tie, team. This time Lee and Geoff.

0:38:420:38:46

Two votes each.

0:38:460:38:49

-So Matthew...

-Hello!

-Quite a bit has changed since you were last here.

0:38:490:38:55

-Oh, probably.

-Another gold medal.

-Yes.

-A knighthood.

-Yes.

0:38:550:39:00

-And a couple more chins.

-You've got a couple more wrinkles, too!

0:39:000:39:06

Oh, no, I haven't!

0:39:060:39:08

-At least I can work out to get rid of the chin.

-So you're not getting older either?

0:39:120:39:18

-It'll catch up with us all.

-So what are you doing these days?

0:39:180:39:22

I work a little bit in TV, I've got three young children,

0:39:220:39:27

and I do a bit of charity work and still in touch with rowing a little bit.

0:39:270:39:33

-Motivational speaking?

-Oh, a bit. As much as I can.

0:39:330:39:37

-Could you give the team a talk?

-I'm sure I could.

-OK.

-Now?!

0:39:370:39:43

-When do you want to? Tomorrow?

-These guys are very motivated.

0:39:430:39:47

Do you do any motivational speaking on cruise ships?

0:39:470:39:52

Em...once, I think. Yeah, once.

0:39:520:39:57

-Cos if the ship broke down, you could row them all home.

-Aha! Yes!

0:39:570:40:03

-Why Lee?

-I think... It's hard to remember now.

0:40:030:40:07

he had a bit of a bad round. No more logic to it than that.

0:40:070:40:12

-Are you fat now because you eat too much?

-I'm fat now because I probably don't exercise enough.

0:40:120:40:19

Why are you wrinkled?

0:40:190:40:22

Haven't lost your charm, have you?

0:40:280:40:31

Listen, you have a go, you've got to get it back.

0:40:310:40:35

So, Paul...

0:40:350:40:37

-Are you single now?

-Yeah, I am, until I meet up with you later.

0:40:380:40:44

0:40:440:40:49

-Pinch it.

-What's happened to Five Bellies?

0:40:490:40:53

-He's still Five Bellies.

-A bit like Matthew, then.

-Matthew's fit.

0:40:530:40:58

He's got a few medals. Different class.

0:40:580:41:02

Jimmy's doing all right.

0:41:020:41:04

-Why have you voted for Geoff?

-I have not got a clue!

0:41:040:41:08

I had a feeling he was gonna vote for us. I didn't do brilliant, but I thought I'd put Geoff.

0:41:080:41:15

-He's still 4-3 up on us.

-OK, well Sally actually was the Strongest Link,

0:41:150:41:21

so she gets to decide.

0:41:210:41:24

You've got a choice between Lee and Geoff.

0:41:240:41:28

Who would you like to get rid of?

0:41:280:41:31

I'm going to go Lee because he has got more questions wrong.

0:41:320:41:37

Lee, you are the Weakest Link. Goodbye.

0:41:370:41:41

I would like to see Sally voted off next just because I thought she was my bosom buddy

0:41:490:41:56

and she did the naughty on me. I'd like to see Gazza win.

0:41:560:42:02

He is a character, offscreen as well as onscreen,

0:42:020:42:06

and I think he was perceived as the underdog. So go, Gazza.

0:42:060:42:10

Round 6. In the bank, £8,350. Another 10 seconds off the time.

0:42:120:42:17

We'll start with Sally. Let's play the Weakest Link. Start the clock.

In a photo of a male streaker at Twickenham in 1974, a policeman covers him up with...

0:44:260:44:32

Time's up. You had a chain of nine correct answers.

0:44:350:44:40

Who banked too soon? You've only won £2,000.

0:44:400:44:45

You could have won £5,000.

0:44:450:44:48

Maybe Matthew isn't floating your boat.

0:44:480:44:53

Maybe Sally won't be breaking any records.

0:44:530:44:56

Perhaps Gazza's a goner.

0:44:560:44:59

Or does Geoff think it's all over. Time to vote off the Weakest Link.

0:44:590:45:04

Matthew is the Weakest Link.

0:45:060:45:09

The Strongest Link is Sally, but who will the team want off?

0:45:090:45:15

Voting over. It's time to reveal who you think is the Weakest Link.

0:45:150:45:20

Matthew.

0:45:200:45:22

Gazza.

0:45:230:45:25

Matthew.

0:45:260:45:28

-Matthew.

-AUDIENCE "Ahhh!"

0:45:280:45:32

-Was that a wink?

-Yeah.

-Are you coming over?

0:45:370:45:41

Oh, aye. I want a kiss.

0:45:410:45:44

So I'm delighted you've stopped voting for Geoff.

0:45:440:45:49

-He's done really well.

-Footballers have got to stick together.

0:45:490:45:54

-He's a football icon and a hero.

-And you're a football hero and an icon.

0:45:540:46:00

I didn't win the World Cup like he did.

0:46:000:46:05

-And Matthew, is it the double chin?

-No, he's quite brave...

-Say it is!

-Yeah.

0:46:050:46:12

He's got plenty of medals and sometimes was on a sinking ship,

0:46:140:46:19

but we seem to have ganged up on him

0:46:190:46:23

and with him being six foot-odd... He IS big, isn't he?

0:46:230:46:27

-Geoff, will it be a footballers' final?

-Who knows?

0:46:280:46:33

Quarter-final at the moment.

0:46:330:46:36

-What did Matthew do to upset you?

-He trod on my toe earlier.

0:46:360:46:41

I couldn't vote for Gazza again and Sally saved my bacon, so I couldn't vote for Sally.

0:46:410:46:48

-Do you know where bacon comes from?

-China.

0:46:490:46:53

Matthew, you are the Weakest Link. Goodbye.

0:46:560:46:59

I'm pretty sure, the way they're playing at the moment,

0:47:050:47:09

that Sally and Geoff should get to the final.

0:47:090:47:13

Not that I want to see Gazza voted off, but I think he had a couple of worse rounds than those two,

0:47:130:47:20

so I'd imagine the final is going to be Geoff and Sally.

0:47:200:47:25

Round 7. In the bank, £10,350. Another 10 seconds off your time.

0:47:260:47:31

In the children's game Hide and Seek...

0:49:320:49:37

0:49:390:49:42

In Round 8 you can treble what you bank. Before that, time to vote off the Weakest Link.

0:49:420:49:48

For the third round in a row, Sally is the Strongest Link.

0:49:500:49:54

The Weakest Link, statistically, is Geoff, but who will be taking the final Walk of Shame?

0:49:540:50:01

Voting over. It's time to reveal who you think is the Weakest Link.

0:50:010:50:07

Geoff.

0:50:070:50:09

Gazza.

0:50:110:50:13

Geoff.

0:50:140:50:16

Sally, why Geoff?

0:50:220:50:25

I just think - it's a bit of a blur now - he got more wrong.

0:50:250:50:29

-Paul, why Geoff?

-Well, I could have voted for Sally because she voted for me last time,

0:50:310:50:37

but I think she's only got one question wrong in the whole show.

0:50:370:50:41

And...155% I knew Geoff's pen was going to say Gazza!

0:50:410:50:47

So I just had to put down Geoff.

0:50:470:50:50

She got more than one wrong, but Geoff was the worst player.

0:50:500:50:55

Geoff, you are the Weakest Link. Goodbye.

0:50:550:50:59

I was fairly comfortable to be asked to re-enact the famous last goal in '66

0:51:040:51:10

because she had Chris Hoy out earlier stroking his own thighs.

0:51:100:51:15

If a young man can do that, I didn't feel quite so embarrassed when she asked me.

0:51:150:51:20

Round 8. In the bank, £10,600. In this round, 90 seconds.

0:51:220:51:27

Whatever you win is trebled. We'll start with Sally. Let's play the Weakest Link.

0:53:050:53:11

Tummy tuck! Bank!

0:53:110:53:14

Sorry.

0:53:140:53:16

We did squeeze that in, Anne. Didn't we?

0:53:170:53:21

-It is for charity.

-It is for charity, Paul, but...

0:53:210:53:26

your first answer was liposuction and that's what I have to take.

0:53:260:53:32

-Ah, all right, then.

-In any case, she was half an hour late with the bank!

0:53:320:53:40

-I can't hear when you turn that way.

-Don't you complain.

0:53:400:53:45

All the same, these athletes.

0:53:470:53:50

Time's up. You won £600, which we will treble.

0:53:500:53:54

That means prize money tonight of:

There can only be one winner. Now up to five questions each. If there's a tie, sudden death.

0:53:590:54:05

0:54:050:54:10

-Well done.

-Thank you so much.

and you go away with:

0:56:570:56:59

-What will you do with the money?

Join us again for the Weakest Link. Goodbye.
