Pointless Celebrities

Pointless Celebrities

Series 4 - Episode 5



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.


Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman invite teams made up of TV chefs, cooks and bakers to come up with the least likely answers to questions posed to the public. The contestants are Rustie Lee, Antony Worrall Thompson, Theo Randall, Rachel Allen, Jean-Christophe Novelli, Paul Rankin, Aaron Craze and John Whaite.
