Pointless Celebrities

Children's TV

Series 8 - Episode 2 Children's TV



Pulling funny faces and making big theatrical gestures is a prerequisite for most successful children’s TV presenters. So don’t expect subtlety from today’s guests who include Mr Tumble, Dave Benson Phillips (being teased mercilessly about his previous appearance), Sally James and Anthea Turner.

There’s lots of jolly giggling about the sex of Edd the Duck, what went on in the broom cupboard and Basil Brush’s one-round guest appearance, but Richard Osman is seriously pedantic when it comes to correct answers. One hapless contestant goes out because he gets the name of someone wrong by just one letter.


Alexander Armstrong presents the general knowledge quiz as famous faces from children's television programmes take part. This edition features CBBC presenters Anthea Turner and Andy Crane, CBeebies stars Justin Fletcher and Gemma Hunt, children's TV hosts Dave Benson-Phillips and Gareth Jones, and former presenters Sally James and Geoffrey Hayes. The famous faces try to come up with the least likely correct answers to a series of questions posed to members of the public. Co-host Richard Osman has all the answers.
