Sports legends to star on BBC One’s Pointless Celebrities


Champions Speakers are pleased to announce that three of our main sports speakers will be appearing on a national television game show this weekend.

Snooker legend Willie Thorne, Barcelona Olympics icon Derek Redmond and Ryder Cup hero Tony Jacklin CBE will star in a special sports edition of Pointless Celebrities, the general knowledge quiz in which four teams try to come up with the answers that nobody else could think of.

Broadcast on BBC One and presented by Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman, Pointless has been around since 2009 and has proven one of the most popular game shows in recent years, with 14 general series and eight celebrity series to date.

Willie and Tony make up one team, while fellow Champions celeb Derek is paired up with Tessa Sanderson, the first British woman ever to win Olympic gold in the javelin thanks to victory at the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles.

To watch Willie, Tony and Derek in quiz show action, tune in to Pointless Celebrities on BBC One at 6pm, Saturday 30 January.
