Pointless Celebrities

Health & Fitness

Series 8 - Episode 15 Health & Fitness



There have been many times that Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman have got dressed up with the result they looked rather foolish on this show. But they’ve excelled themselves tonight. Because this edition is all about health and fitness, they wear ridiculous headbands throughout. The celebs are a mix of TV GPs, fitness pundits and athletes including a pair of previous winners – Iwan Thomas and Katharine Merry.

The first questions are especially tricky – in a word-based round the only pointless answers are ridiculously obscure. Of course it’s easier when they get on to a series of questions about first aid.


Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman present a `health and fitness' edition of the unorthodox general knowledge quiz. The celebrity duos taking part are 1980s TV fitness instructor Lizzie Webb and This Morning's resident doctor Chris Steele, Dancing on Ice judge Robin Cousins and former contestant Rosemary Conley, Welsh sprinter Iwan Thomas and former Olympic athlete Katharine Merry, and Embarrassing Bodies consultants Dr Dawn Harper and Dr Pixie McKenna.
