  • Pointless Celebrities


You may have seen us mention some time ago that Craig and Danny  took part in a Comic Relief special of Pointless Celebrities earlier in the year. Well we now have an air date for the episode; Saturday 17th August at 5:45 PM.

The show sees contestants compete to gain as few points as possible with more obscure answers. The winners will see price money being donated to charity. This celebrity edition also featured Su Pollard & Jefferey Holland (Hi-Di-Hi), Jean Boht & Nick Conway (Bread) and Brendan O-Carroll & Jennifer Gibney (Mrs Brown’s Boys).
