Only Connect Children In Need (  The Agenda)

Friday, 7 November 2014

  This Monday evening, at 8.30pm on BBC Two, is this year’s Only Connect special for Children In Need. As always, we have some incredibly cool OC-style guests coming along to play. This year, they are:

Economics editor of the BBC Robert Peston
Celebrated cook, cookery writer and maths graduate Sophie Grigson
Captain: Actor, comedian, playwright and screenwriter Patrick Marber

Best-selling novelist Kate Mosse
Actor, comedian (and ex-Mastermind champion) Kevin Eldon
Captain: Geneticist and biologist Professor Steve Jones

  Tune in on Monday to find out who wins, whether they understand the questions and why they have those team names.

(Also, later that same evening I’ll be on The Agenda on ITV again, this time with George Osborne, Anthony Horowitz and Michelle Mone. Having previously done that show with Nick Clegg and Ed Miliband, I’m basically using it to collect party leaders - sadly, I’ve yet to net David Cameron for the album but I’ve decided that George Osborne nearly counts.)

Will we be seeing you at the GUKPT Blackpool? It’s set to be a massive tournament and where better to be in November than Blackpool?

I watched the Children in Need episode and loved it. I also, for the first time ever, watched Gogglebox which I shan’t be doing again. I felt every one of the families (bar the two older men) were overly harsh and the commentator didn’t help. She called the first round ‘weird’ and said things got ‘even weirder’ in the second round which just makes no sense. What is weird about linking things or finding the next in a sequence? Humpf. Still, a fantastic episode for a good cause.

Being a bit pernickety but in the missing vowels round one of the contestants said ‘Sherlock Holmes and John’ and not ‘Sherlock and John’ and you allowed it - lucky it didn’t affect the outcome.

Have another listen Tim - he didn’t say anything that he shouldn’t have.

You need to post on Only Connect more, Twitter can’t hold limericks.
There once was a quiz host named Vicky

Whose questions were always quite tricky

She’d attempt your fall

With a quite clever wall
And after, she’d have a gin rickey
