Episode 18: Pointless Celebrities

Summary

Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman present as famous faces take part in the general knowledge quiz in which they try to come up with the least likely correct answers to a series of questions posed to members of the public. Featuring Sean Fletcher, the Rev Kate Bottley, Mark Chapman, Clare Balding, Oti Mabuse, Giovanni Pernice, Joe Swash, and JB Gill

Review

It’s a sitcom edition of the show, so there are a couple of Derry Girls, Red Dwarf’s Kryten and The Young Ones’ Neil taking part, although sadly none of them are in costume.

The celebrity pairs get off to a gentle start with a word round that earns some impressively low scores, although nobody guesses either of the only two pointless answers. At this point you might like to take a moment to admire Richard Osman’s wit — he’s on fire with his clever gags in response to their answers. However, it gets tougher during the musicals round, despite the multiple clues, and the one on goats is as hard as it gets.
