Hello there. Welcome along to
Wednesday’s House Of Games. Very glad you can join us again
and you’re not watching the news. Who wants to watch the news?
Nothing good is happening. All week,
I’m joined by four famous faces. One of them on Friday is going
to walk away with this trophy. Who’s going to be? It’s going
to be one of these four. Gareth Malone… ..Jamelia… ..Mr Paul Martin… ..and Susan Calman. Welcome, welcome. Gareth Malone. Susan won on Monday, you won
on Tuesday. How does it feel? It feels good.
It feels good to win, right, Susan? Yes, it does. Still confident
on winning the trophy? I… Ooh, I don’t… Mm… Ac… HE STUMBLES Let me just read that back to you.
Yeah! I think the answer is, “Yes,
but I don’t want to admit it.” Jamelia, on Monday, you were only
one point off the lead. Yesterday, I’m going
to call it a collapse. I just don’t know what happened! And
I was so embarrassed. Embarrassed? Don’t worry about that!
I don’t know. I felt like I did really well
because I came back the next day, I’m like, “Yeah, I’ve got this.” And, it was like,
“Oh, you actually haven’t.” I tell you what, you needn’t be
embarrassed. Thank you. Paul, however… Yes, Richard? Consistent. Like rock. One point on both days but I think
there’s going to come a point Paul is absolutely going to motor.
I think so. You can see, he’s going to be unleashed. I’m more relaxed today.
Look, I’ve got the trainers on. Perhaps that’s been the difference. I notice Gareth’s got trainers
on as well. He’s pre-empted you,
absolutely pre-empted you. Paul, if you do win today, here’s
the prizes you can choose between. Here are today’s selection. THEY OOH There is the wheelie suitcase,
which has been very popular so far. The jigsaw, which has been less
popular. Chopping board also, driving gloves,
and the tool box. Suitcase. You go suitcase? Looks more
kitsch, yeah, I like that. It’s a pretty good suitcase.
Susan, what would you go for, if you were to win today?
No question, it is… ..my anniversary at some point soon, and if I turned up with
that tool box for my wife, I don’t think I could ever surpass
that as a present. Beautiful. I’m not kidding you, sometimes these
prizes are not great. Suitcase is good,
the tool box is good. Yeah. Let’s take a look at the weekly
leaderboard. Susan and Gareth have both won
a day. Here’s how we stand. Paul at the bottom with three,
Jamelia, you have five, Gareth six, Susan seven. Nothing between them so far.
Wednesday’s House Of Games. Let’s do it, shall we?
Round one today is… I’m going to go down the line
and ask you each two questions. They both have the same answer, OK?
If you answer it after the first question, I’m going to give you
two points. Answer it after the second question,
I’m going to give you one point. Gareth, we’ll start with you. OK. I can’t even
think of the name of a horse. I think legally you can call them
anything. OK. Dobbin. Dobbin, there you go, lovely. Sounds like the sort of thing
the Duke of Wellington would ride. Definitely. You can change your
answer once you’ve seen the lowbrow question, if you want. I got that! Did you? Don’t say the
answer! Buzz in in a minute… In which Danish city did Conchita
Wurst… I can’t even think of a Danish city.
Which is very shameful. It’s all right, we’re not
in Denmark. No, I really don’t know. Come on, Paul! Paul Martin… He got
it from the first one! ..no way! He got it from the first question. I knew the horse – Copenhagen. Copenhagen! And that is all we have time for…
Hit the ground running! THEY CHEER Just sit back and relax now, Paul,
you’ve got your one point. I’ve woken up!
It’s taken until Wednesday. Well done if you got that at home,
well done if you got it off the highbrow question as well. Jamelia, for two points. OK. Medusa? I don’t know.
Medusa, you’re going to say. Let’s see if you change your mind…
No-one else has got it! Don’t worry about that.
Here’s your lowbrow question. Oh, look at Paul Martin.
Oh, I know, I know! This is his show,
I can tell already! This is it! Who loves Wednesday! LAUGHTER That would be a great catchphrase. Oh… I feel like there was a running person.
I don’t know. Maria? Paul wins the buzzer race. Cassandra. Cassandra is the right answer,
well done. And Paul, it’s your turn now.
Thank goodness for that. Here we go. Cupola? Cupola camera. Let’s take
a look at your lowbrow questions, see if you want to stick with that
or change your mind. All right, here we are…
Oh, my gosh! They’re getting their own back now,
Paul. Radcliffe. It is the right answer, well done. So, no-one’s scored at all
apart from Paul in this round. It’s like taking a photograph in
negative. It’s bizarre, isn’t it? Susan, for two points. Lovely. Things. Things Or Discoveries. Let’s just move on. Let’s take a look at your
lowbrow question. Quite literally, I have not
heard of either of those people. I don’t know. Investigations. No, I didn’t think it would be. It
is not. Jamelia, you know the song. I know I’m going to kick myself
when I see the answer because… It’s like I know it
but it’s just not there. It is… Oh, see, I knew it! I did know it! Well, you say that… Timber was the answer.
Back to you, Gareth. Two points if you can get this one.
OK, come on, Malone. The Doge’s Palace is about
all I know of Venice. So, the Doge’s Palace, let’s see
if we can find a lowbrow question to which the Doge’s Palace
is an answer. LAUGHTER Here’s your lowbrow question. Oh. That’s got to be Arsenal. Arsenal is the right answer.
A point for Gareth, well done. Jamelia. Jamelia, for two points…
Yeah. OK. On the back of what animal? A dolphin. A dolphin, make sense. Let’s take a look,
do you want to change your answer, Jamelia, after this
lowbrow question. OK. SHE GASPS I’m just so happy
I’m getting back in the game! Seal. Seal is the correct answer,
well done. Paul, for two points. They’re just giving the points away! Napoleon. Napoleon, you’re going to say?
Let’s take a look. That’s possibly a lowbrow answer
that could be Napoleon. Let’s take a look at
your lowbrow question. Everyone’s in. Roland. Roland is the answer, well done. Susan, last question in this round. Metropolis. Yes. OK, let’s take a look
at your lowbrow question, to see if you want to change that answer. Metropolis. Metropolis, well done. Let’s take a look at the scores,
shall we? Round one finished… SUSAN: Yes, Paul! Oh, look at that, Gareth and Jamelia have one,
Susan has two and Paul… ..has four points! Absolutely
sensational. Is that an illusion? Let’s take a look at our next round.
It is… This is a pairs round. The player in last place gets
to choose their partner. Gareth and Jamelia, you’re in last
place. Gareth, you haven’t chosen a partner yet. You played with
Jamelia both days. Do you want to mix it up?
I’m going to… I’m going to stick. I’m going to stick with Jamelia. Stay loyal. This is the behaviour of
people who don’t want to move seats. LAUGHTER I thought that as well! Gareth and Jamelia,
you’re a team once again. Paul and Susan, you are a team. Before the show,
you all sent me an answer. That answer was a children’s book but you were only allowed to use
emojis to describe that book, either the title,
the plot, or something about it. You now have to guess the title
of the book that your partner sent to me, OK?
Gareth, we will start with you. What book is this that
Jamelia is describing? The… Well, OK, there’s
a train, there’s a railway, then there’s some children.
Could it be The Railway Children? Could it? Yes! That is… That is perfect.
Well done. Susan, what book is Paul trying to
describe to you here? Right, let’s have a look at this. Right, there’s lots of flowers. Something… Something flowers. Is that…a suitcase? What is that? Safe? Is that luggage? JAMELIA GASPS You got it? Yes, I think so. What I like about this round is
when you see it, you see it, but if you can’t, it’s… It’s a key
and a suitcase and it’s a locker. Is it a locker? Is it a locker? Locker flowers. Lock of flowers.
Flowery lock. Locky lock lock lock. Cupboard.
No, that’s not a children’s book. I’m going to time you out, Susan.
Yeah, I don’t know. We’ll time you out. What do you
think it is? Secret Garden? Secret Garden, that’s what
I was thinking. That’s very good. Very clever, well done if you said
that at home, terrific stuff. Jamelia. Yes? Gareth sent me
the name of a children’s book. Are you emoji literate?
I do like… This guy? I think it is the natural
evolution of the language. Fabulous. In a visual form. Excellent.
What book is this? Oh… Sometimes it’s the title,
sometimes it’s the plot. OK, so, in my head, this is telling
the story of The Gruffalo… I’m just being thrown off
by the peanuts and the man. And the tree. The snake, the fox and the owl
are very important characters, and the mouse, of course. I’m just
going to go with The Gruffalo. I’ll say I didn’t know any of that
stuff but that sounds fairly convincing. Gareth, is it
The Gruffalo? Yes, it is! Well done. It actually, left to right,
tells the story of The Gruffalo. That is sensational! I mean… Textbook. Between the two
of you as well, The Railway Children and then that, sensational stuff.
Perfect round. Paul, what children’s book is
Susan describing here? So, we’ve got a pig. We’ve got two eggs, two little eggs.
A pig… It’s nothing to do with pigs, is it? It can’t be anything to do
with pigs. I’m really struggling.
No? Shall we time you out? It’s a great clue, I think. It is
a Dr Seuss book. Susan? So, the recycling symbol,
which is green, eggs and ham. That’s a very good clue. Lovely
round, well played, everybody. Let’s look at the scores,
shall we? End of round two… Very, very close.
Susan, you have two, Gareth and Jamelia, three, Paul, four. Two points between
the lot of them – how about that! Paul is still in the lead. Paul leads. Can he keep that lead
through the final three rounds? Let’s take a look.
Our third round today is… I’m going to ask you some questions
now – you have to give me the answer in alphabetical order,
please. So, if it was your name, Susan, you’d have to say, Calman Susan.
Yes. You see how that works?
Fingers on buzzers, or should I say buzzers fingers on. Answer me this, please. Susan. Island Treasure. Is correct. Next question. Yes, Jamelia? SHE GROANS Oh, no. Oh, I know it, I know it…
I can’t remember the name. I’m going to push you
for an answer. I’m so sorry. I’m going to time you out.
So embarrassing. Gareth. From… Incorrect. Susan. Is it The Big Bang Theory? I mean, it is but… Alphabetical order,
we’re looking for. Come on, Paul. I haven’t got a clue! Susan just gave you the answer. I wasn’t even listening! You said the big… In alphabetical order for you,
the answer is… I’m thinking of Third Rock From The
Sun. You see? I get it. Yep. Here’s your next question.
This is terrible! Who is this? Yes, Gareth? Swift Taylor. Swift Taylor, well played. Next question. Yes, Susan? West Wild Wild. West Wild Wild? Correct, well played. West Wild Wild. Wild Wild West. Next up… What is the title of this song? # I’m a model… # Yes, that is Gareth. I’m Sexy Too. Yes, I’m Sexy Too, well done. I’m Sexy Too from I’m Too Sexy,
Right Said Fred. Next question. Yes, Jamelia? Oh, this is so hard.
Good luck, everybody. I know, I know. Settle back,
make yourself a cup of tea. We might be in for a long haul. Essex… SHE LAUGHS Sorry. I might have to time you out…
Essex Only Is… No, incorrect, I’m afraid. Gareth, good luck. Essex Is… WHISPERS: Oh, yeah, idiot. ..Only The Way. Oh, well done. That was tense. Final question in this round. Good luck, Susan. OK. I’m going
to take my time over this. Let’s have a little go. Are… ..Are… ..From… ..From… ..Mars… ..Men… ..Women, Venus. Oh, no! At the last hurdle! I’m not even going to attempt it,
I know what is… That was heartbreaking.
Go on! Jamelia, go on, then. Gosh. OK, Are, Are, From, From, Mars, Men… Don’t do it wrong! ..Venus, Women. Yes! Oh, how about that! Susan, absolutely gutting. You did so much heavy lifting
in that one. Men Are From Mars, Women Are From
Venus, but in that absurd order. Well played, everybody. Ow! I know, right?
Let’s take a look at the scores. Susan, Paul, Jamelia, you all have
four, Gareth, the lead – six points. Very close between everyone,
two points between all four of you. Anybody’s game.
Round four is going to be… This is played on our tablets now. I’m going to give you some
categories, you have to give me a correct answer
but I’ll give a point to the person who gives me the correct answer
that has the most letters in it. You get an extra point
if you get the longest possible answer in this category. Your first category is this. So, write down an answer
that’s correct and the one with the most letters
in it will win a point. Gareth Malone.
Gareth, what’s your answer? I’ve gone for Papa Don’t Preach. Papa Don’t Preach. Let’s put that up
there, see how many letters it is. Papa Don’t Preach, 14 letters. Jamelia, what have you got?
I don’t think I’ve beaten that. Material Girl. Material Girl… ..is 12. Paul? Like A Virgin. Like A Virgin,
says Paul. That’s 11. And Susan? Who’s That Girl? These are
all good answers. Well, I assume
they’re all good answers. Who’s That Girl is also 12
so, Gareth, if Papa Don’t Preach
is a correct answer, if it was a top 10 single in
the 1980s, you have won the point. Is it a correct answer? It is, well done. A point to
Gareth Malone. All four of them were correct
answers, so very well played. Are you going to get an extra point,
though? Let’s have a little look. Causing A Commotion, 17 letters,
very well done if you said that. I don’t know. Never heard of it.
I don’t know that one. Let’s take a look,
shall we, at the next category. So, any drama series that has won
the BAFTA Best Drama Series in the 21st century. Jamelia, we will start with you.
What have you gone with? Downton Abbey,
The Christmas Special. LAUGHTER I think we’ll just take
Downton Abbey. OK. I mean, I tried. I think The Christmas Special
was not a series. Downton Abbey –
how many letters is that? 12. Paul, what have you said? I was going to go Downton Abbey but I think there’s more
letters in Brideshead Revisited. Oh… 19. Very nice.
Susan, what are you thinking? I don’t know if it’s won a BAFTA but I know it’s an incredible drama
series, Last Tango In Halifax. Last Tango In Halifax. It’s 18! Blimey! It’s a good answer, though.
Gareth, what are you saying? I can’t decide whether there’s
a “the” in this but I do think it won a BAFTA. Line Of Duty.
It smells of BAFTA to me. Line Of Duty, 10, that is. So, Paul, if Brideshead Revisited
did win a Best Drama Series BAFTA in the 21st century,
you’ve got yourself a point. Is it correct? It is not, I’m afraid. Which means, Susan, if Last
Tango In Halifax won that BAFTA, you’ve won a point. I don’t think it won a BAFTA. It did, well done indeed. Yes!
Great! 2013, a well-deserved BAFTA. The other two answers
there, Downton Abbey and Line Of Duty, were both wrong,
amazingly. Have you scored yourself
two points, though, Susan? Is that the best possible answer? You’d be hard pushed
to think of a longer one. Let’s find out,
have you got two points? Is that the best possible answer? How about that? Beautifully done.
That’s the way to play the game! The final category in this round… So, any of the 23-man squad
for Gareth Southgate’s England World Cup adventure in 2018. I don’t know if he was part of
the squad. Sorry, I’m nearly there. I can’t think of a single… It’s
football. I can’t think of anyone. I’m going to have to
write down the only one that I know is a footballer.
What do you think at home? I know for some people this
would be an absolute speciality. Paul, going with you, first. Raheem Sterling. Raheem Sterling, of course. How many letters is Raheem Sterling? 14. Susan, who have you gone with? So, I’ve gone with the only one
I know, Harry Kane. He played, I believe. I believe
he may have done something good. There you are. Nine letters in Harry Kane
for Susan. Gareth? My caveat is that I know
nothing about football. There was somebody, something
like Adeli, Deli, Dele Alan… We’ll go Dele Alli. Scored you 8. And Jamelia, who are you saying? Marcus Rashford. Good one, Marcus Rashford, very nice. Is that longer than… Must be
about the same as Raheem Sterling. Is it identical? It is identical, 14. You could both be scoring a point
here, Jamelia and Paul. Is Marcus Rashford a correct
answer, and a point for Jamelia? Yes, she has. Well played, Jamelia. And Raheem Sterling is a correct
answer as well, Paul, congratulations,
a point to both of you. Have you both won two points? Trent Alexander-Arnold, of course! THEY CHUCKLE Of course, tip of my tongue,
tip of my tongue. I think that’s who I was trying to
draw, actually, as you can see. That’s really good. Spot on. Couldn’t be anyone else, really. It’s the end of that round.
Tablets away, please. We have one round to go
on Wednesday’s House Of Games. Shall we take a little look
at the leaderboard? It was close before we started.
It’s so close, look at this! Jamelia and Paul five,
Susan six, Gareth seven, it is literally anybody’s game. Shall we play our final round?
It is… Point for a correct answer,
point off for an incorrect answer. Very best of luck to all of you.
It’s been a terrific show. So close, so close.
Your first category is… That is Susan. Plumpire. Plumpire is the right answer,
well played. Next fruit, next clue. WHISPERS: I don’t even know him. Shall I tell you? ALL: Yeah. Peach Time You Break My Heart.
Oh, come on. Of course it is. Next category is… Here’s your first TV foodie. Yes, that is Gareth. I’m so sorry, we’re going to have to
time you out. I’m so sorry. Oh, man, I should know this. Yes, Jamelia? Jamie Oliverona? It is, well played,
Jamie Oliver and Verona. Two point swing there,
two point swing. Next TV foodie. It’s getting very, very close now. Susan? Ken Homburg. Ken Homburg, Susan, well played.
Ken Hom and a Homburg. Nicely done.
Our last TV foodie is… WHISPERS: What’s it called…? GARETH: I can’t get her name.
PAUL: No, I can’t. Are we all… I don’t know. Nadiya Hussain’t nobody.
Oh, I knew it! Nadiya Hussain’t nobody. It’s painful, isn’t it? LAUGHTER Next category. HOOTER BLOWS
There’s no more categories! It was super close
going into that last round. Monday, Susan Calman won.
Tuesday, Gareth Malone won. Who has won
Wednesday’s House Of Games? It has been so tight all the way
through but we have a winner and it is… ..Susan Calman! Three points
between everybody there. Susan, congratulations. Thank you. What are you taking home with you
today? No question. The tool box is coming home with me. Susan Calman takes home a House Of
Games tool box… For the wife. ..for her anniversary. Yes!
Not every day you say that. Brilliant show from everyone today.
Thank you so much and our lovely prize as well. Let’s take a look
at the weekly leaderboard. Paul, you have four.
It’s very close at the top, Jamelia with eight, Gareth with nine
and Susan with 11. It’s close all week, isn’t it? Someone’s going to walk away
with that trophy. Thank you so much, see you again
same time, same place tomorrow, we will see you again same time,
same place on the House Of Games. Swear down, right. I didn’t have a present for her. LAUGHTER
