Hello and welcome to tonight's show.
The race is on for our teams but who will get over the line first?
Let's find out as we start with the Picture Board.
OK, Matt, your team are up first.
As always, 12 pictures to get through.
Anyone can shout out the answers.
We will start with number four, please.
-Aw, Robbie Renwick.
-Good shout. Three.
Oh, that is...
That's that jackpot guy, what's his name?
It... It... Oh, move on.
-Oh, Lewis! Lewis!
-Yes. It is.
-Oh, erm, Dan Evans.
Move on, six! Brilliant!
-Oh, it's... Luiz. Luiz.
-Oh, Inge de Bruijn.
Great start. 11 scored.
-11 out of 12, well done.
Pressure's on, team.
OK, number one, please, Sue.
Eight, seven even.
Oh, oh! What's her name?!
-Redding, Scott Redding.
ALL SHOUT AT ONCE
-Sean Dyche, yeah!
What a score. End of the round, great scores. Matt's on 11.
Phil in front on 12.
We've got Sports Action now
so take a close look at everything happening.
Pens at the ready. Here we go.
Holding on but here comes Gemili.
Through to take it comes Adam Gemili.
Rossi wins his fifth Grand Prix of the season.
Oh, my goodness me, that is quite extraordinary!
Van Persie. Guzan thinks about coming and stays back.
And van Persie thrashes it home.
Oh, ho, ho!
Crash bang wallop, what a picture.
You will now take it in turns to answer a one-point question
on a sport that you've just seen.
Get it right and you'll have the chance to gamble for an extra point.
Get it wrong though and you'll end with nothing.
-So, Matt, we come to your team first. You've got swimming.
You saw Simone Manuel winning for the USA,
but with which swimmer did she share the gold?
-That was Penny Oleksiak.
-Yes, it was.
-From Canada. Well done.
So one point, are you going to gamble for two?
Is it another swimming question?
-But if you get it wrong, you lose that point.
-It's Karen Pickering.
-The voice of swimming.
-You're going to gamble?
-Let's do it.
Of course you're going to gamble.
Since 2000, who is the only other non-European winner
of the Women's Olympic 100 metres Freestyle?
Was it 2004?
Could have been?
-Was it an Australian?
-Could have been.
Was it Alice Mills?
-It was 2004, I was Australia, it was Jodie Henry.
-You lose that point.
-Phil, over to your team.
-Your first sport is MotoGP.
You saw Valentino Rossi in action in 2003
but at which circuit was he winning?
-Was it Estoril?
Estoril in Portugal, well done.
Good one. Wow.
-Two points ahead at the moment.
-What's your knowledge?
-OK. I think it's worth the risk.
-Oh, well. We're two ahead!
I know, I know!
-It's up to you, what do you think?
-No, it's up to you, you're the one.
-Yeah, I'm ready to go with it. Let's give it another go.
-Going for it, of course he is.
-Woo, let's have it.
Valentino Rossi won the championship that year as part of his five
titles in a row, but who won it in 2006 to break his run?
-You've got it.
-Might not be as ready as I thought.
No, you are.
-Go on. It's either him or him.
I'm going to go Casey Stoner.
Ah, no! AUDIENCE: Oh!
I knew you should have just taken the one. Why do that?!
Everyone is thinking they're all big-headed and everything.
Aw! Keep to the one.
I thought it was Lorenzo, is that correct?
-Nicky Hayden it was.
-Of course it was, Nicky.
Unlucky, mate. Don't worry.
I told him, stick.
So, you lose that point.
-It's taekwondo next for you, Matt.
Maria Espinoza was winning taekwondo Olympic gold in Beijing,
which British fighter won bronze in the same event?
-Very good, very good.
-That's one point.
That draws you level, so...
-Go on. Yeah?
-Go for it.
-Give us a good one.
Espinoza won bronze at the next Olympics in London,
but was defeated by which eventual champion in an earlier round?
-That means she won the whole thing?
-Yeah, so who won it in London?
-I think it may be Milica Mandic from Serbia.
-Did she beat...?
-I'm pretty sure.
-She beat her on the way?
-I'm pretty sure.
But she won it and I'm pretty sure she won it cos...
-The champion, then. Boom.
Phil, for your team, athletics.
You saw Adam Gemili winning his semi-final
at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, who was finishing second?
-I knew you were going to say that. I knew it.
-I didn't see it.
I really can't remember his name.
But he literally popped on the scene and disappeared.
I feel like his name begins with a J, but I really can't remember.
-We're almost there(!)
I feel like we should say Jason something. I don't know.
It may well be.
It's really stumped me with that one, you've really got me.
-Yeah, I haven't got it.
-It is Jason.
-It is Jason.
-It's Jason Livermore.
You had it in there.
Matt, your final sport is golf.
Bubba Watson was winning his first Masters,
but who did he beat in a play-off that year?
For some... I don't...
What's rattling around in my head is a guy called Angel Cabrera...
who won it. In about '09, 2009 or something like that.
I've just got a sneaking suspicion he was in a play-off.
I'm going to say Angel Cabrera.
It was South African, Louis Oosthuizen.
-Oh! Louis Oosthuizen!
-So no point there.
-Finally, Phil, for you, football.
Van Persie was scoring against Aston Villa in the Premier league.
He's one of only two Dutchmen to score over 100 Premier League goals,
who is the other?
Van Nistelrooy or Bergkamp.
I'm a United fan,
but I feel like Bergkamp was in the Premier League longer.
Got to be the lej that is Dennis?
I feel like it might be that one.
-I think you're right.
-Go with that, I'd say.
Dennis Bergkamp, Sue.
-Who was your other choice?
-Ruud van Nistelrooy.
Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.
-That went terribly well.
Bianca, your gamble paid off because at the end of the round,
Phil is on 12, Matt's team in front on 13.
OK, captains, you're up in the middle for this one. Out you come.
So, once you've chosen a topic, you'll be faced with a question.
You need to buzz in when you think the counter
has reached the correct answer.
The number you stop it on will be the number of points you'll earn.
But be careful,
buzz in too soon and you'll miss out on some valuable points.
-But if you buzz in too late, you'll end with nothing.
So those are the categories.
-And, Tuppers, as you are trailing, you can pick first.
Boys, what do you fancy?
-Chequered Flag? Racing? Perhaps?
-What's your F1 like?
-F1 is average. OK...
Chequered Flag, we're going to go for, Sue.
-Chequered Flag, you're going for Chequered Flag. OK.
-Here's your question.
-Yes, come on, boys.
How many Brazilian drivers have won the Formula 1 world title?
-Not many. Senna.
How many? Your time's started, you're already on one.
I think you better stop now.
It's horrible up there. It's horrible.
-Why do you think, I don't know...
-I've got no idea.
-Can't be many.
-Not Barrichello, Senna... Yeah, about four...
Well, you've guaranteed three points anyway.
-Shall we see how far you could have gone?
-It was three.
-So, Matt, now it's over to you.
-Phew! It's horrible up there.
What do you reckon, girls?
-Erm... In At The Deep End.
-In At The Deep End?
-That's what we're doing.
-In At The Deep End.
How many swimming gold medals have
Britain won at the Summer Olympics since 1970?
Gold medals at the Olympics since 1970.
Becky won two, Adrian won one,
Adam Peaty won one.
-Wilkie, Goodhew, yeah.
-You're on four.
-You're on five.
-Five? Five? Did we get to five?
-We are on five.
-Did we get to five?
-I made six.
-You got to six?
-I got to six.
You've secured five points anyway. Let's see.
BUZZER And that was it. It was six.
Well done, girls.
Very well done.
-What do you fancy?
-Home Straight - it's going to be sprinting, we think.
-Fancy a bit of that?
-Home Straight, please, Sue.
How many outdoor World Championship medals
has Christine Ohuruogu won?
How many outdoor World Championship medals has Christine Ohuruogu won?
-Here we go.
-Give us a rough idea.
-At least five.
-At least five. Hit it on five?
-Go for six.
-Go for six. Just...
-No, no, no!
-OK, we're safe at five.
-If that's including relays, we're safe at five.
-We are safe at five.
-You secured five points. But how many?
Well, that's all right. Should've gone one more, perhaps.
They were shouting to go six.
If you'd have gone six, that would have been the...
BUZZER ..correct answer.
-That was perfect.
-That was perfect.
Ah, Skating On Thin Ice. That's...
I mean, that's not going to be our specialised subject, is it?
-At The Races.
Game Set Match. Tennis. Scotland's Finest.
Right On Cue. Ups And Downs. Ups And Downs? Ups And Downs...
Ups And Downs. Ups And Downs.
-Sue, we've got no idea.
-Ups And Downs.
How many seasons have Watford played in the Premier League?
-Here we go.
-We haven't got a clue.
-I'm going two because it draws level.
-It draws level.
-You should have gone three.
-Drew level. Drew level.
-You have secured two.
Can't be many more than that.
-Four was the right answer.
-We'll take that. Take that.
So, you're tied. Your last one, Phil?
Who do you fancy? What do you fancy?
I'm tempted to say tennis but I don't know much about tennis.
I just feel like that's the closest thing I've got.
-Shall we have a bit of tennis?
Let's do it for Sue.
LAUGHTER Don't blame me!
-Game, Set And Match.
-Game, Set And Match.
I don't know anything about tennis, why did I say that?!
..how many different Spanish men
have reached a Grand Slam singles final?
How many different Spanish men have reached a Grand Slam singles final
since 1990? Here we go.
-No, three, three, three, three, three.
-I've got the extra.
You could squeeze an extra.
-I'm going for you right on there.
You've got your four points safe. THEY CHEER
Let's have a look. How many was it?
Go more. No!
-DAWS AND PHIL:
-That was it. Eight.
Yes, a possible four points that you missed out on.
You were guessing. You were squeaking at four.
I was squeaking at four. Ferreira, Nadal...
-All right. OK.
-But you got four points and that's good.
So your final choice, Daws.
It's snooker, ice skating, horse racing or Scotland's Finest.
Come on, we've got to know a little bit about horse racing.
-I don't... I haven't got a clue.
-Did we have...?
We didn't know what Ups And Downs was, did we?
-And we did all right with that.
So let's go At The Races. We might know a little bit about...
-What a motivational talk.
-Little bit about... Come on.
-At The Races?
How many racecourses in the UK begin with the letter C?
-Good luck with that, fella!
Just go for four, so then we're five, and then we'll beat them.
-I'll go four. I'll go four.
Chepstow. Please tell me there's one more.
You've got four. You've secured four cos it hasn't run out.
-So, let's have a look.
-It didn't run out. It didn't run out.
Should have went five to beat them.
-Oh, come on.
-We did all right. We did all right.
Both teams did incredibly well cos at the end of the round,
the teams are tied - both on 24.
In this round, it's a choice of Home or Away.
-And Karen, we're coming to you first.
-Do you want to go Home?
-Yeah. I'm going to gamble on double.
Australia and which other country
have won women's 100 metres freestyle relay gold
at both the World Championships and the Olympics?
OK, so, who won that in 2000...? Who won it in Athens?
Who won the 100...?
That would probably have been Australia in 2004.
-2008, Beijing, I think it was Holland.
I think it must be Holland.
It's the right answer. Well done. Yes.
-I'm half Dutch.
-I'm half Dutch.
If I'd got that wrong, that would've been an absolute shocker.
-You're half Dutch?
OK, Neil, Home or Away?
-Yeah, I'm going to go Home on it.
Who, at Silverstone in 2016,
won his first Moto GP race in only his second season,
helping him to a fourth-place finish
in the World Championship?
Yes, it was. Of Spain.
-Bianca, Home or Away?
-Do you know what? I'm going to gamble.
We are here to win, aren't we?
Please give me an easy one!
Right, Japan has hosted the Winter Olympics twice
and won a total of 45 medals.
In which three sports have they won five or more medals?
It's got to be that, you're right, it has to be that one.
-Are they into this?
-Yeah. I think so.
-Like figure skating?
-I would guess, cos it's not going to be skiing, is it?
I feel that more than that.
-Well, we've got three answers.
It's not going to be curling, is it?
We've got three. We've got to find three.
-If we get two, can we have two points?
-Yes, you can.
It's not a bargaining thing! You can't bargain!
You get one point for each correct answer, Bianca.
-Do realise the sport Bianca does, Phil?
Harry, sort her out!
I think she'd have me as well, mate!
OK. Let's-let's-let's start with those two.
-OK, so we're going to go for speed skating...
Is that yeah?
I'll give you the answer when you give me all three!
She's punchy! She's punchy!
I'm going to have to watch myself here, I think!
-OK, that's two.
We've got to guess from one of these.
-Was that a yes?
-That was a yeah?
What do we think?
Ooh, hold on.
You've got two... What's your third?
-I reckon you've got two points in the bank there.
-Up to you.
Speed skating is right.
-Figure skating is right.
-But two points, well done.
-Not bad, though. Not bad!
So, can you steal it?
We've got luge and ski jumping.
-Which one do you fancy, boys?
-They were our options.
-Do you fancy a ski jump?
-I think ski, yeah.
Sue, we're going to go ski jumping.
You went with the...
-Yes. You went with the right one.
Right, Harry. Home or Away?
-Can we go Home, please?
Make sure you get it right.
Come on, son.
Who, in May 2015, became the first man from his country
to go sub 10 seconds in the 100 metres
and later that year helped his country to world silver
in the 100 metres relay?
It might have been China, you know.
Is it Sue?
I know she's fast but she's not that fast!
I feel like his name is spelt X-I-U.
Xiu Bin - I feel like, might be it?
I reckon just hit her with Sue and see if that's good enough.
-Yes, Xiu Bin or Bin Xiu.
She's a national treasure. You can't be doing that!
Xiu - we will accept anyway. That's the last name.
But we like to see you suffer. It's Xiu Bintang.
I knew it was a Tang... Ah! Yeah. Thank you so much.
But that's enough, that's all we need.
Well done and at the end of the round, the teams are tied -
both on 27.
And, Matt, your team are going first here.
Who is this struggling to keep their head above water?
JAZZY MUSIC PLAYS
I think I got it.
Bianca got that in approximately 0.5 seconds.
Ooh, confident from the team.
Is it Max Whitlock?
We will have a look, Bianca.
See if you're right.
Yes, it is - the double Olympic champion Max Whitlock.
OK, Phil. Who is this filling up?
MUSIC: Lights Out for Darker Skies by British Sea Power
That was hard.
Couldn't even see if he was a big lad.
He looked a big lad, didn't he?
-I can't think of anyone from athletics...
..that fits in.
For that shape?
It wasn't Matthew Hoggard, was it?
That's the only person who I thought it could be.
Well, that's better than what we've got.
He doesn't usually have facial hair.
He usually has a lot of hair on his head but that's the only one
I can come up with. Matthew Hoggard, Sue.
Is it Hoggy?
No, it isn't Hoggy.
I'm going to go with
Going with Shane? Let's see.
Yes. Well done.
And that steal has made a big difference
cos Phil's on 27 and Matt in front on 31.
But we know it can change in this round. It is the Buzzer Round.
So, remember, it is one point if you buzz in and get it right
but one point away if you buzz in and get it wrong. Here we go.

final in February? BUZZER

WHISTLE BLOWS AND SUE LAUGHS
Aintree. It started so well.
-You clawed some back.
But then, it is a win.
It's a win for Matt's team.
33 points to 29.
That was tough.
Anyway, a huge thank you to all our guests and well done
to Bianca and Karen. Commiserations to Neil and Harry.
