  • Pointless Celebrities is the BBC quiz hosted by Alexander Armstrong where celebrities go head-to-head in a general knowledge quiz where contestants try to think of answers that the public might not have. One hundred members of the public are surveyed and give as many answers as they please, and the object is to guess the most obscure ones, not the most popular. Whoever scores the lowest wins in this hilarious celebrity quiz.moreless

    • Alexander: (during the Andy Murray round) Craig and Danny, talk us through the board.
      Craig: I should know his mother's name... every time he plays they [directors] cut to her...
      Brendan: It's err.. (clicks fingers twice) Mrs. Murray.
      Craig: Is his brother's name Jamie? (turns to a silent Danny) Are you playing this at all?

    • Brendan: We want the Pointless trophy, that glass trophy, to go beside our (turns to Craig and Danny) BAFTA.
      Craig: We can count our Emmys against that.

    • Brendan: I don't like [clowns].
      Richard: I'm the same, as soon as anybody funny dresses up in weird clothes and goes out then tries to entertain, I can't have it...

    • Alexander: (after Su gets 100 to make her and Jeff's score 200) Bad luck Su.
      Su: It's worse than bad luck, it's a disaster. I've gotta go home.

    • Danny: I was trying to be too clever by getting someone really obscure.
      Aleaxander: Yeah, not so obscure they're wrong.

    Notes (4)

    • The jackpot was £2,500 and it wasn't won.

    • The jackpot was £2,500 and it was won for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

    • When Jeffrey Holland gave his answer in the first round a red line appears on the score tower (the red line indicates what score a person has to get to see their pair through), as he was the first of his pair to answer it was not possible for him to get an answer low enough to see them through, so this shot is taken from another part of the episode.

    • This episode was broadcast at 5:45 pm.

    • Armstrong says this episode features classic British sitcom stars, however O'Carroll and Gibney star in Mrs. Brown's Boys which is originally Irish, although it is popular in the United Kingdom.
