Pointless history is made in this celebrity chefs’ edition though we won’t say why and spoil the surprise. But even the imperturbable host Alexander Armstrong looks a bit taken aback.

Elsewhere, the big shocks come in a round about 2012 Olympic heroes and the knowledge of Pointless’s bedrock, those 100 people who were given 100 seconds to come up with the right answers. Where were they when Mo Farah, Jessica Ennis et al strove for glory? In the studio, as ever, general knowledge varies widely, though chef Jean-Christophe Novelli is proud of himself during a food-related film titles round.
