Sorry, we couldn’t resist that headline… because we all know he’s anything but that! Anyhow, the cult comedy legend is to appear on Celebrity Pointless this weekend.
The general knowledge quiz in which four teams try to come up with the answers that no-one else could think of is about to wrap up the tenth series of celebrity editions which began, intriguing enough, exactly one year ago this coming weekend.
Several of our regulars have appeared on the show over the years – Eldon himself appeared back in 2015 – and with previous Onion-related guests this series including the likes of The Fast Show‘s Charlie Higson, Aaaaaaaah!‘s Toyah Willcox, and Man Down‘s Isy Suttie, it’s a delight to see one of our full blown regulars aiming for zero once again.
Hosted as ever by Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman (the latter recently being seen in Murder in Successville), Eldon is joined by Dave Jones, Andi Ohso, Holly Walsh, Barry Cryer, Omid Djalili, Stephen Frost and Helen Atkinson-Wood.
You can see the edition at 18:25 this Saturday on BBC One, ahead of the latest episode of Doctor Who.
If that’s not enough Pointless for you, many of the past Celebrity editions (featuring the likes of Tracy Ann Oberman, Steve Pemberton, Bob Mortimer, Doon Makichan and Richard Herring) are available to buy via BBC Store. And don’t forget, the latest series of Kevin Eldon Will See You Now is also on iPlayer right now.
