Pointless lands primetime Saturday BBC slot

By Nicola Methven 1/02/2012

Hit BBC daytime show Pointless has landed a primetime slot after pulling in more than 5million viewers over Christmas.

The new series will include 18 celebrity specials, with 10 shown in the normal weekday slot and eight screened on Saturday nights from March.

Alexander Armstrong, 41, said: "It's going to be fun. Including the usual version we'll be on six days out of seven - blimey."

His co-host Richard Osman added: "We haven't changed the show at all for Saturdays, so we'll still be our normal, bumbling, amateur selves."

The spin-off, called Pointless Celebrities, will allow stars including Arlene Phillips to win money for their chosen charities.

The celebrities are set to include Bill Oddie with fellow wildlife presenter Chris Packham, TV favourites Claire Sweeney and Anthea Turner, Formula 1 host Jake Humphrey and David Coulthard and Arlene Phillips and her daughter Alana.

If the weekend shows return for further runs, the pair already know who they'd like to attract. Armstrong would love to see Stephen Fry tackling thethorny subject of Britney Spears songs while Osman fancies Denzel Washington having a go at the rivers of Wiltshire.

BBC1 has ordered a total of 158 new episodes of Pointless for the coming year. The show kicked off on BBC2 and was so popular it shifted to BBC1 last July.

David Flynn, boss of production company Remarkable Television, laughed: "There are not enough Pointless Celebrities on Saturday night television so it's great to bring our show to this new slot."

In Pointless every question is asked to a panel of 100 people before the show - to find out the most obvious and the most obscure answers.

The contestants aim to win the fewest points by selecting the least popular responses and the ultimate goal is to find one that none of the 100 people thought of.
