“Anyone who’s an actor here should be OK on round one,” says Richard Osman as he surveys eight people who were all once child stars.
There’s Coronation Street’s Adam Rickett, Oliver!’s Mark Lester, Outnumbered’s Tyger Drew-Honey and three former pupils of Grange Hill. In fact a couple of people do embarrassingly badly, while another gives what Richard describes as “a very, very good… wrong answer”. The head-to-head round is a nail-bitingly close-run thing, though.
Subjects on this week’s crib sheet are pasta, The Sound of Music and famous marriages.
Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman present as another selection of celebrities take part in the general knowledge quiz. This time, the duo open the contest to famous faces who made a name for themselves early in life. Outnumbered's Tyger Drew-Honey teams up with This Is England's Thomas Turgoose, while Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory's Julie Dawn Cole joins forces with Oliver! star Mark Lester. Plus, former Grange Hill stars Lee MacDonald and Erkan Mustafa take on old classmate Michelle Gayle as she partners ex-Coronation Street actor Adam Rickitt.
