Pointless Celebrities – S11E38 “Doctors” (25 May 2019)
APPLAUSE Thank you very much indeed.
Hello, I’m Alexander Armstrong, and a very warm welcome
to this special TV doctors edition of Pointless Celebrities, the quiz where the more obscure
your knowledge, the better your chances of winning. Let’s meet this evening’s
Pointless celebrities. APPLAUSE And couple number one. I’m Simon Shepherd.
I play Dr Will Preston in conservatively 70,
maybe 80 episodes of Peak Practice. Erm, that’s my medical knowledge
for the day. I’m Dr Chris. I’ve been a GP for 50 years,
but I’ve also been resident doctor on This Morning show
for nearly 30 years. APPLAUSE And couple number two. Hello, I’m Amy Robbins. I played Dr Jill Weatherill
in The Royal and I played his wife on screen, but I’m also his wife in real life. Hello, I’m Robert Daws and I’m here
as a time-travelling doctor – as an 18th-century doctor,
Dr Choake in Poldark, and as a 20th-century doctor,
Dr Gordon Ormerode… Ormerod… What was it called?
The Royal. The Royal. Dr Gordon Ormerod in The Royal. APPLAUSE Couple number three. Hello, my name’s William Beck, and I play Dr Dylan “Death” Keogh
in Casualty. Hello, I’m Sunetra Sarker, and I played Dr Zoe Hanna
for nearly nine years in Casualty. APPLAUSE And finally, couple number four. Hi, I’m Dr Sara. I’m an NHS GP. I’m also a resident GP
on This Morning, alongside Dr Chris and Ranj here. You might have seen me try and
battle my way through The Island. Hi, I’m Dr Ranj. I’m a resident medical doctor
on This Morning, alongside my lovely colleagues. I also co-present
Save Money: Good Health on ITV, and some people may have seen me singing about poo on CBeebies
as well. APPLAUSE Thank you all very much indeed.
A very warm welcome to Pointless. Lovely to have you with us. We’ll get a chance to chat further
throughout the show, as it goes along. That just leaves
one more person for me to introduce. Using his thermometer
to take the temperature of trivia, but not in the French way, it’s
my Pointless friend, it’s Richard. Hiya. Hey, everybody. Good evening.
APPLAUSE Good evening. Good evening. So, some real doctors,
some pretend doctors. Who do you think is cleverer,
real doctors or pretend doctors? I can tell you…
Well, I can sort of tell you. We’ve had a few of these people
on before. Now, Sunetra and Simon
have both been on before. They’re pretend doctors. Mm.
They act, OK. They’re very good at acting, so
you wouldn’t know they’re pretend. They’ve both got through
to head-to-heads, which is very, very good
on this show. Mm. But we’ve had two real doctors
on the show before, Dr Chris and Dr Ranj. Not only have they both reached the
final, they’ve both won a jackpot. CONTESTANTS MURMUR
So, there’s your answer. Well, there’s your answer so far, and there’s our challenge
to our pretend doctors as well. Yeah, fantastic.
Thank you very much. As today’s show is
a celebrity special, and each of our celebrities
is, therefore, playing for a nominated charity, we’re going to start off
with a jackpot of £2,500. There it is.
APPLAUSE Right, if everyone’s ready,
let’s play Pointless. Just remember this. It’s the pair with the highest score
at the end of each round that gets eliminated.
Highest score eliminated, so keep your scores
as low as you dare. Very best of luck to all four pairs. Our first category
this evening is… Can you all decide in your pairs
who’s going first, who’s going second. And whoever’s going first,
please step up to the podium. OK, and our question concerns… Richard. On each board,
we’re going to show you seven clues, and the answers to all of them are
also the names of European cities. So the clues will be about
various different things, but the answers will also always be
the name of a European city. We’ll give you the country that that
city is in as well. There we are. Thank you very much indeed. So, we’re looking for the European
cities described by these clues. And here is our first board
of seven. I’ll read those again. There we are. Now, Chris, welcome
back to Pointless. Thank you. Very good to have you here. As a TV doctor, are you told
what you’re going to be covering or is it what has come in through…
The mailbag I was about to say. That’s from 20 years ago. ..things that come in
from the viewers? I mean, how does that work? That’s how it was
20 or 30 years ago. There are various means. They can ring in on the day,
they can ring in the day before, they can send an e-mail
the day before, so you can be prepared
or you may not be prepared. It could just be live consultation
down the line, which is terrifying. Mm-hm. There we are.
Chris, what are you going to go for? Erm… I think it will have to be the humorous form of five-line
poetry in rhyming pattern. Limerick. Limerick, says Chris. Let’s see how many of our 100 people
went with Limerick. It’s right. 49.
APPLAUSE 49, not bad.
Gets us off to a good start. Yeah, you’d think that might score
a few more, mightn’t you? But I think as soon as you start
talking about rhyme patterns, people tend to lose confidence.
Yeah. Thank you very much indeed, Richard.
Robert, welcome. Thank you very much. Now, an interesting thing
about Robert is that, as well as being an acclaimed actor,
you’re a crime novelist. Yes, I do, in my spare time.
How did that start? Well, I’ve always been interested
in crime, from reading Sherlock Holmes
and what have you, and I’ve always enjoyed puzzles. You always have a lot of time,
certainly on television, waiting to go on,
so I started doing stories and I co-created a detective series
for Radio 4 called Trueman and Riley,
and it moved on from there. So I started writing books set with
the Royal Gibraltar Police force in Gibraltar,
on the Rock of Gibraltar. Very good. Now, Robert,
what are you going to go for? Well, I think I’m going to go
for number three and that’s Gary Rhodes.
Rhodes, says Robert. Let’s see how many of our 100 people
went with Rhodes. Rhodes is right.
49 is our only score at the moment, and you pass it. Down to 34. Very well done. APPLAUSE Well played, Robert. Nice start.
Rhodes is the capital of Rhodes. Presumably there are roads, and
if one is named after the island, it would be Rhodes Rhodes
Rhodes’ roads would be the… Thank you very much indeed, Richard.
Now, William, welcome to Pointless. Wonderful to have you here. Now, you weren’t starting out
to be an actor. You originally went off to
university to study what exactly? Medicine. Oh!
Yes, that’s interesting. What happened with that? I think I probably sensed
fairly early on that I was a bit more skittish than you would ideally have your,
you know, visiting surgeon. So I fairly swiftly made a decision
to jack that in. And then into acting, into acting.
Yeah, I kind of fell into acting as abruptly as I’d fallen
into medicine. Quite surreal. Your very first acting job
was on Snatch. Yes, my very first job
was in the company of Brad Pitt and Madonna and Guy Ritchie. Again, another surreal occasion,
matched only by this. LAUGHTER Good. Who’s the Madonna, who’s
the Guy Ritchie in this scenario? I think we both know the answer
to that. LAUGHTER William, what are you going
to go for? Yes. I’m going to go for the informal name for the treaty. IN DUTCH ACCENT: Maastricht. LAUGHTER Maastricht, says William.
Let’s see if that’s right and how many of our 100 people
said Maastricht. Look at that. 34 is our low score and you pass it. 30, new low score. APPLAUSE Great work, William.
Very well played. We do have a lot of viewers
in the Netherlands cos they get the BBC over there,
don’t they? So we get a lot of feedback
from there. I will be interested to hear
the tweets about your pronunciation. It was first-class, wasn’t it?
It did sound good. I thought it sounded terrific,
but I will leave it to the Dutch. I imagine they’ll be delighted
with that. Thank you very much indeed. Sara, welcome to Pointless.
Good to have you here. Thank you, good to be here. Look
at that, in imminent company there. In fact, the only couple
that is 100% bona fide doctor. Ah… Yeah, that’s us. When do you reckon,
in terms of a doctor’s career, when do you think they are
at their absolute peak? Do you think it’s when they have
just come out of training, come out of university
or whatever it is, and they’re at the very beginning, they’re just fresh
and they know everything? Or do you think you learn
on the job? Somewhere in between. I’d like to
say I’m at my prime now, actually. That’s where we are. That’s what I was leading towards.
Absolutely right, yes. Now then, Sara, this board
behind me, what are you thinking? I think it’s unfair
that we are fourth here, because all the tricky ones
have gone, but I’m going to go for 2016
horror film starring James McAvoy as Split. Split. OK, let’s find out
if that is right. Let’s see how many
of our 100 people said… William, how do you think
they pronounce that in Croatia? Er… IN ENGLISH ACCENT: Split.
LAUGHTER Split. How many people said it? It is Split. Look at that. Down it goes to 17.
Very well done indeed. APPLAUSE 17 for the genuine doctors podium
over there. Well played, Sara. Terrific answer. And you’re right, it’s so unfair
to make you go last and give you the lowest score, and then let Ranj have the first
pick of the next board as well. What were we thinking?
I know. Really terrible. So, goodness, well done,
under such conditions. That is the best answer
on the board. The top one, the sprouts? Brussels. Brussels. 74 points for that. The large container for water? Bath. That’s only scoring 78.
Really? So, what are people immersing
and washing their bodies in, is my question. The lovely Maastricht. And the first name of the nurse? Florence.
Florence is the correct answer. And that would have scored you
69 points. Very good indeed.
Thank you, Richard. We are halfway through the round.
Let’s have a look at our scores. This is easy. It ramps up.
17 is where we find Sara and Ranj. Very well done indeed.
Lovely low score there. 30 is where we find
William and Sunetra. 34 is where we find Robert and Amy. And then 49, Chris and Simon. A little bit ahead there.
You just have to hope there’s a low-scoring answer there
for you, Simon. Good luck.
Let’s come back down the line now. Will the second players
please step up to the podium? OK, let’s put seven more clues
to European cities on the board, and here they come. We have got… I’ll read those again. There we are.
Ranj, welcome back to Pointless. Great to have you with us
once again. Thank you. How did you get into TV doctoring? Just randomly happened
to have coffee with a producer who was looking for someone,
and she took me on, and it just kind of rolled on from
there really, and it kept going. I actually come from
eight generations of doctor, do you know that? Wow! I have an enormous family tree
of doctors behind me, so really I should really be
on that side. And I come from a family
of eight generations of patients. LAUGHTER A lot of us. We’ve got so much
in common. That’s why we… Yeah, that’s why we get along.
Yeah, I think so. Yeah. OK, now, Ranj, there you are,
17 is your score at the moment. If you can score 31 or less,
you’re straight in, even at this early stage,
straight into round two. Oh, no! OK, I’m going to go for one
which I’m guessing a lot of people will have guessed it. Oh! Dish consisting
of breadcrumbed chicken, I’m going to call it as a Kiev.
Kiev. Let’s see if that’s right. Now, here is your red line. Look at that, mm, red line there. Mm – I’m thinking of chicken Kiev,
isn’t that ridiculous? Mm! Let’s see how many
of our 100 people said Kiev. It’s right. Oh! Popular choice there, Ranj. 72. At least you got it right.
89 is your score. Yeah, people like a chicken Kiev. Used to be filled with meat
or truffles, things like that. Thank you very much. Sunetra. Hello.
Welcome to Pointless. Do you find that having played
a doctor, and so visibly, that people just naturally want
to confide in you their various medical…? Do you know, I’ve walked into
a few hospitals in the past, as a patient, and been mistaken
for the doctor. Of course. Which has been weird, because
of course, when you’re not working, you know you’re not anything to do
with the real medical world. Especially in an emergency, this is the last moment you want
to discuss your working life. Your career.
Anyway, that’s where it’s happened. Now, Sunetra, you’re on 30. 58 or less keeps you in the game. Ooh… I’m going to go for the first
name of the Oscar-winning writer and director of Lost In Translation. Sofia Coppola. Sofia, says Sunetra.
Here is your red line. Can you get below that with Sofia?
I should think so. It’s right. And you’ve done it. Very well done. Down it goes to 26. 56 is your total. Lucky times!
APPLAUSE Very good indeed. Very well played. Sofia Coppola, as you said.
Daughter of Francis Ford Coppola. She was born while he was directing
The Godfather, so she actually appears in that film
as a baby. Ah, that’s nice. And cheap. Oh, yeah, super cheap. Thank you very much indeed, Richard. Amy. Hello. So, you and Robert… This was news to quite a number
of our contestants this evening. ..are actually married in real
life… So he keeps telling me. ..as well as in The Royal.
How did you meet? Doing The Royal, the series
we were in. Really? Yeah. Married for 16 years. Wow! Love a crossword. Was it
his expert suturing or some such? It helped.
LAUGHTER I used to take it
very, very seriously, my acting, you know,
acting a doctor, my method training
and all that stuff, and I used to learn from
the specialists how I’d do stuff, and I was taught
how to do a Caesarean section, and I’d mime it out of shot,
and I was very, very thorough. Bob used to just have a crossword,
just out of shot, like that, when he was meant to be operating. Now, Amy, you’re on 34. You have to score 54 or less. OK, I think I’m going
to go for number two, the Ian McEwan novel,
which is Amsterdam. Amsterdam, says Amy.
Here is your red line. Can you get below this red line
with Amsterdam? Let’s find out. There we are. Look at that, 19. 19, taking your total up to 53.
APPLAUSE Very well played. Yeah, Amsterdam is the capital
of the Netherlands, but The Hague is the centre
of government and administration and stuff, but Amsterdam is still
the capital. There we are. Yeah. Thank you very much indeed.
Now, Simon. Hello. Welcome, welcome. Now, you’ve played both a rural GP
for a very long time… Yes. ..and an overworked hospital doctor. Yeah, I’ve just finished shooting
a couple of episodes with Will, actually. I’m a neurotic…
You were a mess. I was a mess. And he sort of looked after me
and my wife. I won’t tell you the storyline,
but it was pretty dramatic. Yeah. Neo-natal consultant surgeon. So, which do you prefer?
If you had to be a doctor, would you prefer to be
a rural doctor or a hospital doctor? If I’m acting? Yeah.
The time on Peak Practice was the best part of my career. It was five years in that wonderful
Derbyshire countryside, and terrifically good scripts.
Very good. Now then, we have
a moment of truth here, Simon. You’re on 49. We have to get a score of 39
or less. You’re not going to. LAUGHTER I think I’ll go for
the strongly scented toilet water, which is Cologne.
Cologne, says Simon. 39 is what you have to score to stay
with us. There is your red line. Will you get below that red line
with Cologne? Let’s find out. It’s right. Ooh, 40! 40. Ooh, this is exciting! This is exciting. That takes your total up to 89. Ladies and gentlemen, we are
in lockdown. What about that? It’s the two podiums featuring
genuine medical practitioners. That tells us something.
Now, you can consult. You can consult? Confer, sorry.
Getting all medical. You can confer, and I’m going
to come to Simon and Chris first. We need another answer from you
from that board. ALEXANDER AND RICHARD:
# Ooh, ooh, lockdown… # OK. OK, yeah, the top one. Derby. You’re going to go for Derby. OK, Derby for the top one.
Now then, Ranj and Sara. We can basically sing the last song
again and again, but we can’t remember what it is. So, we’re going to go
for the Ireland question, Cork. Cork. OK, we have Derby, we have Cork. This is exciting! Derby’s got it. Simon and Chris
have gone for Derby. Let’s see how many of our 100 people
said Derby. It’s right. 62.
APPLAUSE 62 for Derby, taking your total up to 151. OK, now then, Ranj and Sara
have gone for Cork. It’s OK… Here is your red line.
If you can get below that red line, you remain with us
at the end of the round. Cork, they’ve gone for.
Let’s see if it’s right. Let’s see how many of our 100 people
said Cork. It is right. Oh! 75 for Cork. APPLAUSE 75, taking your total up to 164. Yeah, unlucky.
If you’d had to hazard a guess at the bottom one,
just a German city? Right, it’s not Berlin,
it’s not Zurich, it’s not… We don’t know.
Berlin was the correct answer. No! You’re kidding! Would have seen
you through as well. You’re joking! Oh, no! Would have
been worth a risk, I think. Berlin would have scored you
45 points. Oh, my God. What about that? Thank you, Richard. At the end of our first round,
I’m so sorry, it’s our pair of real doctors
over there. Thank you so much for coming
to play, Ranj and Sara. A treat to have you here.
Please come and play again. Ranj and Sara.
APPLAUSE But for the remaining three pairs,
it’s now time for round two. And there we are,
suddenly down to three pairs. And at the end of this round, we’ll have to say goodbye to yet
another pair. Can you believe it? But well done, all of you.
You made it through that round. Best of luck to all three pairs. Our category for round two
this evening is… It’s a words round. Can you decide
in your pairs who’s going first, who’s going second. And whoever’s going first,
please step up to the podium. OK, we gave 100 people 100 seconds
to name as many… Hm, Richard.
Yeah, we’re looking for any word that has its own entry in the
British and World English section of oxforddictionaries.com, please,
that ends “OLE”. Just has to begin with a letter
from A to M, inclusive. Thank you very much indeed, Richard. Chris, a word from the first half
of the alphabet ending “OLE”. Hyperbole.
Ooh, hyperbole, says the doctor. Let’s see how many of our 100 people
said hyperbole. Ooh, get in there.
Keep going, go on. Whoa! 13 for hyperbole.
Very good indeed. Well done. APPLAUSE Not mucking about there, is he,
Dr Chris? No! That was one of those things where,
“I’ll just do my immediate one, “it’s not going to get any better,” and then, boom, hyperbole.
Very nice. Thank you very much. Robert, what would you like
to go for. I think I’m going to go for cajole. Ca… Oh, they’re all so good. Cajole says Robert. Let’s see how many of our 100 people
said cajole. Look at that! Very good indeed. 6 for cajole. APPLAUSE Yeah, to persuade someone to do
something through excess flattery, amongst other things. Very good. Thank you very much indeed,
Richard. Now, William. Not looking good, is it? Erm… Hm… Asystole. Ooh! What do you mean,
it’s not looking good? It’s not looking good
if you’re asystole. Asystole. Let’s see how many of our 100 people
said that. There we are! It IS looking good, William, it is. That is a pointless answer
and adds £250 to today’s jackpot, which takes today’s total
up to £2,750. Scores you nothing, and earns you a pat on the back.
That’s just wonderful. Might be one of the all-time
great answers we’ve had in a word round, that.
Asystole. It means the heart ceasing to beat. It’s a condition in which the heart
ceases to beat. Coincidentally, my heart then ceased to beat,
just for a moment or two. We’re just about to head
back down the line, but before we do,
let’s just recap on the scores, just remind ourselves of William’s
fantastic pointless answer there. William and Sunetra looking
very strong, it must be said. Then we find Robert and Amy on 6. And then, on 13, Chris and Simon. Just a little bit ahead there,
Simon. A low score from you could turn it
all around, so good luck with that. Let’s come back down the line now. Can the second players please
step up to the podium? OK, now, Sunetra. Remember we’re looking for any word
from the first half of the alphabet that ends in the letters “OLE”. Guacamole. Guacamole.
Here is your red line. Get below that with guacamole,
“dip” below that… I like what you did there! ..and
you’re through to the next round. Let’s see how many of our 100 people
said guacamole. Well done. Look at that,
9 for guacamole, taking your total up to 9.
APPLAUSE You are through. Very well played. I’ll take a look at the dictionary
definition of guacamole, and it says, “It is mushy peas
for posh people.” LAUGHTER Thank you very much indeed. Now then, Amy. You are on 6. You need to score 6 or less
to stay in the game at this stage. OK. Erm… I’m going to say, er, creole. Creole. Creole.
There is your red line. Get below that with creole,
you are into the head-to-head. Ooh, 15 for creole. Creole.
That takes your total up to 21, opens the door
a little bit for Simon there. Interesting on that final podium
now. I was worried it might be
a proper noun, creole, but it’s not. It’s there with a small C as well.
Phew, there we are. Thank you very much indeed. Simon, you have to score
7 or less, 7. OK, it’s a medical term. Oh, good. Diastole. Diastole. Chris likes it. Yes.
Here is your red line. ALEXANDER SIGHS Let’s see how many of our 100 people
went for diastole. Is it right? It is right. And down it goes
to pointless. Very well done indeed, Simon. That adds another £250
to today’s jackpot. Takes the total up to £3,000, scores you nothing,
leaves your total at 13, sees you into the head-to-head,
and again, is marvellous. Brilliant. I mean, how about that
for some medical knowledge? But both from actors. LAUGHTER It means the phase of the heartbeat where the muscle relaxes, diastole.
Yes. Let’s take a look at
some of these pointless answers. Bronchiole is another medical thing,
Chris, isn’t it? I don’t know why I’m asking you.
We’ve got actors here. That’s another medical term,
isn’t it? LAUGHTER Let’s take a look at the top three, the ones that most
of our 100 people said. That’s a terrific round,
by the way, everybody. To go out with 21 points
on a words round is crazy. There we have it.
Thank you very much indeed, Richard. It’s the end of our second round. We have to say goodbye
to one of our pairs. Amy and Robert, I’m so sorry,
it’s you we have to say goodbye to. But as Richard says, ridiculously
low score to be going out on, but thank you so much for playing. It’s been wonderful having you here.
Please come and play again. Amy and Robert. Thank you.
APPLAUSE But for our two remaining pairs,
it’s now time for the head-to-head. Congratulations, Sunetra
and William, Chris and Simon. You are now one step closer
to the final and a chance to play for our jackpot,
which currently stands at £3,000. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE But this is the part where we decide
who goes through to the final and plays for that jackpot
for their charities, and we do it by making you go
head-to-head, but the big difference is
you can now confer. You can chat
before you give your answers. First pair to win two questions
will play for that jackpot. Best of luck to both pairs.
Let’s play the head-to-head. Here is your first question.
It concerns… Richard. I’m going to show you
five famous people now. We need you to tell us the act who
had a song named after those people. We’re going to give you
the first and last letters of the names of the act as well.
OK, thank you very much indeed. Let’s reveal our five famous people,
and here they come. There we are. Five acts
whose names we’re looking for, who had hits named after
these famous people. Sunetra and William, you are our
low-scorers, so you get to go first. THEY CONFER We’re going to go for Gorillaz
for B. You’re going to go for Gorillaz
for B. Gorillaz. So then, Chris and Simon,
do you feel like talking us through the rest of that board?
No, is the short answer. Not much to say. I think we’re going
to go with David Bowie for A. For A. OK, so we have Gorillaz
and David Bowie. Sunetra and William have gone for
Gorillaz for B. Let’s see how many of our 100 people
said Gorillaz. It’s right. Down it goes to 30. APPLAUSE Not bad. Not bad. Chris and Simon, meanwhile,
have gone for David Bowie for A. Let’s see how many of our 100 people
said David Bowie. Ooh, look at that.
David Bowie wins. 26 for David Bowie. Chris and Simon, very well done. After one question, you are up 1-0. Yeah, David Bowie sang
about Andy Warhol, Gorillaz sang about Clint Eastwood. Who sang about Michael Caine?
Madness. Madness, yeah. Would have been a good answer.
Would have scored 24 points. That’s a great song,
Michael Caine by Madness. Who sang about Grace Kelly? Mika.
That’s the best answer on the board. Mika would have scored you 12
points. Well done if you said that. And who sang about Marilyn Monroe? Nicki Minaj. Nicki Minaj. Yeah, very little else could fit
in those letters. 15 points for Nicki Minaj,
another great answer. Thank you very much indeed, Richard.
OK, here comes your second question. Now then, Sunetra and William,
you have to win this one to stay in the game. Oh. But Chris and Simon get
first dibs on it, so slight advantage to them,
so good luck. Our second question this evening
is all about… No problem! Easy! Richard. We’re going to show you
five clues now to words which are synonyms
for “rubbish”. We’ll show you the first letter
of the answer as well. Thank you very much indeed. Let’s reveal our five clues,
and here they come. I’ll read those again. Now, Chris and Simon,
you will go first. THEY CONFER We’re going to go with the rock band who provided the theme song
for the Bond film as Garbage. Garbage. OK, Chris and Simon
are saying Garbage. Sunetra and William, do you feel
like talking us through that board? Ha-ha, talk you through the board?
That’s trash talk. I think that’s what we think
the number one is, trash talk. Erm… Litter for the bottom one. I think we’ll go for number three.
Yeah? Yeah. Number three,
we’re going to say Junk. Junk for number three.
we have Garbage versus Junk. Chris and Simon have gone
for Garbage. Let’s see how many of our 100 people
said Garbage. Garbage is right. 38.
APPLAUSE 38 for Garbage. Sunetra and William
have gone for Junk. Let’s see how many of our 100 people
said Junk. Junk is right. Ooh, and it wins it back.
Look at that. 28, just what you needed,
Sunetra and William. After two questions, it’s 1-1. We’ve got a lockdown.
APPLAUSE Well played. We’ll leave the second
one down. It’s the hardest one. The top one is trash, as you say,
trash talk. Would have scored 61. The bottom one is litter.
That would have scored you 74. And the second one? It’s rubbish at sea.
Flotsam and Jetsam. Flotsam and Jetsam. Oh, yeah! That would have scored 14 points.
Well done if you said that. Thank you very much indeed.
OK, here comes your third question. Whoever wins this one goes through
to the final to play for that jackpot,
so very best of luck to both pairs. Our third question this evening
is all about… What?! Going to show you
five book titles now. We’re missing one word
from each book title, and that word is
a piece of clothing. Can you tell us
what they are, please? Thank you very much. So, can you
supply the missing clothing to these book titles?
And we have got… I’ll read those again. So, Sunetra and William,
you will go first this time. THEY CONFER Which one would you go for? It could be Velvet Galoshes.
LAUGHTER We’re going to go for
The Black Velvet Glove. OK, Black Velvet Glove. Now, Chris and Simon,
do you want to talk us through the rest of that board? Well, obviously,
the first one is Knickers. The Boy In The Dress. I think we’re going to go
The Boy In The Dress. The Boy In The Dress. So, we have The Black Velvet Glove
and we have The Boy In The Dress. Let’s see. In the order they were
given, The Black Velvet Glove, say Sunetra and William.
Let’s see if that’s right. Let’s see how many of our 100 people
said The Black Velvet Glove. Oh! Not The Black Velvet Glove. Meanwhile, we’ve got Chris and Simon
saying The Boy In The Dress. That just has to be correct
for you to win that question. And it is correct. Very well done. There you are, goes down to 30.
APPLAUSE Crucially, it was right,
and it means, Chris and Simon, very well done.
After three questions, you are through to the final, 2-1. Well played, gents. Let’s fill in
the rest of this board. You’re quite right. It’s OK,
I’m Wearing Really Big Knickers! Would have scored you 49 points. It’s The Black Velvet Gown,
I’m afraid. Oh, there you go. Gown would have scored you
39 points anyway, would have scored
more than the David Walliams one. Ballet Shoes is the biggest scorer
up there, 57. And Young Men In…? Sss…
It could be Suits, but it isn’t. That’s why it’s quite a low scorer. What would they wear on their feet?
Socks. Spats. Spats. Spats is exactly what it is,
of course it is. Young Men In Spats. And that would have scored you
6 points. Well done if you said that.
Thank you very much indeed. So, the pair leaving us at the end
of the head-to-head round, I’m afraid, Sunetra and William,
it is you. It’s been wonderful having you
on the show. You’ve been brilliant,
great company the whole way through, so thank you for that.
Please come and play again. Sunetra and William, wonderful.
Thank you. Thank you. APPLAUSE
But for Chris and Simon, it is now time
for our Pointless final. Congratulations, Chris and Simon. You’ve fought off
all the competition and you have won
our coveted Pointless trophy. Wow! You now have a chance
to win our Pointless jackpot for your charities,
and at the end of today’s show, the jackpot is standing at £3,000. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE I think this is the very best result
we could possibly have. Here’s the answer. It’s a mixture of
both real doctor and pretend doctor. Hybrid. Yeah, a hybrid team. What would you like to see come up
in this last round? What’s going to help you win
that jackpot for your charities? I would like
purely medical questions. And I would like medical questions so I can be
his supportive assistant. As always, you get a choice
of four on the board behind me. You just have to hope there’s
something you like the look of. Today’s selection looks like this. What do we think? I think I’ll go home now. Yeah.
LAUGHTER Cinema Saints And Sinners, for me,
I think is probably the best. Shall we do Cinema Saints
And Sinners, give that a go? Yeah, if you feel confident. I don’t feel confident, but do you
feel confident on anything? I feel no confidence in all four.
Right. Let’s go Cinema Saints And Sinners.
Cinema Saints And Sinners, Richard. We are looking for any
of the following, please. According to IMDb,
anyone who appeared in any of the three following films. So, any actor appearing
in any of those three films. Thank you very much, Richard. Now, you’ve got up to one minute
to come up with three answers. All you need to win the jackpot is for just one of your answers
to be pointless. You don’t have to answer
all three categories, just focus on whichever one
you like the look of. Are you ready? Yeah. OK, let’s put 60 seconds
up on the clock. They are there. Your time starts now. That’s 2007. 2007. Not an early one. No, I think that’s Gemma Arterton,
erm… Gemma Chan, Rupert Everett. Sin City, I think, is Clive Owen. What’s her name? Rosario… St Elmo’s Fire,
it’s that sort of bratpack. It’s Charlie Sheen
and those people, isn’t it? No… Er… Shall we try St Trinian’s? Yeah, I’m just going to go along with you. I don’t… Really, I’m no use
to you at this point. Right. I do apologise. Erm… Well, the St Trinian’s film,
I think… What are we, ten years ago? So there’s Colin Firth, Rupert Everett, Gemma Chan. Ten seconds left. OK, I think we’ll go
with St Trinian’s. We’ll go with Sin City for one. Yeah? OK, there’s your time up. Let’s have your three answers.
If you say which film. If we go with Sin City for one,
which is Clive Owen. Clive Owen. And the cast of St Trinian’s, I think if we went with
Gemma Chan… Gemma Chan.
..and Colin Firth. And Colin Firth. Which of those three is your
best shot at a pointless answer? Gemma Chan. Gemma Chan goes last. Least likely to be pointless?
Clive Owen. Clive Owen.
Colin Firth goes in the middle. Let’s put those answers on the board
in that order, and here they are. Three good answers
on the board there. If one of those turns out
to be pointless, you will leave with that jackpot
for your charities. What charities are you playing for?
Chris? For Francis House
Children’s Hospice, which is in South Manchester. They do a great job
with the children. Very good. Simon, how about you?
Barnardo’s. Very good. APPLAUSE
Two wonderful charities there. Let’s hope one of these answers will
win that jackpot for your charities. Your first answer was Clive Owen. In this case, we were looking
for the cast of the film Sin City. If Clive Owen is pointless, he will win that £3,000 jackpot
for your charities. Let’s see how many people
said Clive Owen. It’s right.
All it has to be now is pointless. If Clive Owen can take us
down to 0, your charities will be
£3,000 richer. Down we go
with Clive Owen. Into single figures.
Still going down. Down we go to 1. Oh, no! APPLAUSE Come on!
Oh, that’s annoying, isn’t it? One person got Clive Owen. I bet it was Clive Owen himself.
Almost certainly. Let’s not dwell on that. Let’s turn
our attention to Colin Firth. In this case, we’re looking for
the cast of St Trinian’s. This is the 2007 St Trinian’s. Colin Firth, if he’s pointless,
will win your charities £3,000. Let’s see how many people
said Colin Firth. Colin Firth is right. Clive Owen
was right, took us down to 1. Colin Firth now takes us
down through the 30s, through the 20s,
into the teens. Into single figures… No, 8. You’re doing well there. APPLAUSE Two fabulous answers so far. Lovely
low scores. We’ve been down to 1. We’ve been within touching distance
of the jackpot. Everything is now riding on your
third and final answer, Gemma Chan. Again, we’re with that film
St Trinian’s from 2007. If Gemma Chan is pointless, your
charities will be £3,000 richer. Let’s see how many people
said Gemma Chan. Oh, no! Sorry. I thought that was your pointless
answer there. I thought it was. APPLAUSE Gemma Arterton was in it. Oh, bad luck.
Two fabulous answers there. And Gemma Chan just sounded like
a jackpot-winning answer there, but I’m afraid you didn’t manage
to find that all-important pointless answer, so I’m afraid you don’t win
today’s jackpot of £3,000. However, as it’s a celebrity
special, we are going to donate £500 to each celebrity pair
for their respective charities. It’s been such fun having you on. Thank you so much for playing
so brilliantly. And don’t forget, you take home
a Pointless trophy each as well, so well done, Chris and Simon. APPLAUSE Yeah, a really valiant effort, getting a 1-point answer
in that final round. A couple of years
before Gemma Chan’s time, 2007. It was, yeah. Shall we look
at the pointless answers in the different films?
We’ll start with St Elmo’s Fire. Everyone was a pointless answer, apart from Demi Moore,
Emilio Estevez Rob Lowe, Judd Nelson,
Ally Sheedy and Andrew McCarthy. Everyone else in the film was
a pointless answer. Well done if you said one. The cast of Sin City now.
Some big actors here as well. Big scorers there, Bruce Willis,
Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke. They were the big scorers. And the cast of St Trinian’s. Lots and lots of celebs
and British actors in this. Here’s a few of them
that would have won you the money. Rupert Everett was the biggest
scorer there, 13 points. Very well done if you got
any of those answers at home. Thank you very much indeed, Richard. And thank you so much,
Chris and Simon. It’s been wonderful having you here.
Chris and Simon, everyone. APPLAUSE Join us next time, when we’ll be
putting more obscure knowledge to the test
on Pointless Celebrities. Meanwhile, it’s goodbye
from Richard. Goodbye. And it’s goodbye from me. Goodbye. APPLAUSE
