Read his autobiography the other day. It was so good I finished it IIIIN OOONE
Fuck. Probably the best ever quiz show (plus fifteen to one).
feel really bad for good celebs who die the same day as bigger celebs, relegated down the news rankings

And the sheer joy of winning it. People were fucked off going home with 64k on WWTBaM.
one of the reasons Pointless is undisputably the Best Quiz On TV these days is the fact that everyone on it knows they’re probably going home with fuck all, even the winners, and are just there for the fun of it.
Not fuck all. The winners get the trophy. And they WANT the trophy.
Presumably Princess Di met Mother T at some point. It’s striking me as unlikely that Jim and Steve ever bumped into each other. Are there any other famous “simuldeaths” and if so, did they ever meet (except in the queue for heaven, obvs)?
Pretty sure I’ve watched every episode of this on CHALLENGE over the last year
He seemed nice
This clip always makes me chuckle
But used to love watching reruns of it on Challenge while hungover.
