Pointless Celebrities

Food & Drink

Series 12 - Episode 7 Food & Drink



A twinkling edition this week courtesy of a couple of Michelin-star owners behind the podia standing alongside Bake Off’s Candice Brown and wine buff Olly Smith.

Unfortunately, Saturday Kitchen’s Matt Tebbutt presents Richard Osman with “the most complicated adjudication I’ve ever had to make on this show”, although it does give him and Alexander Armstrong the opportunity for some syllable-changing word play. Tebbutt also gives Xander near heart failure with a frankly ludicrous answer in the geography round. 

The final pair’s flippant suggestion that Bet Lynch was in Les Misérables merely shows how much they struggled with the category. Subjects to brush up on are alliterations, memoirs and Queen.


Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman invite another selection of famous faces from the world of food and drink to take part in the unorthodox general knowledge quiz. Those standing behind the podiums this week are Ken Hom, Ching-He Huang, Candice Brown, Atul Kochhar, Andi Oliver, Michael O'Hare, Matt Tebbutt and Olly Smith.
