APPLAUSE Hello there. I’m Richard Osman. Welcome to a very, very special week
on House of Games, because this is not the House of
Games, it is the House of Champions. Our four famous faces this week
have all won previous episodes of the show. This time they’re competing
for a very, very different trophy. Look at this beauty.
Who’s going to win it? It’s going to be one of these four
former champions, and they are… Scarlett Moffatt, Rick Edwards, Naga Munchetty, and David O’Doherty. APPLAUSE Winners all, but only one of you
can win this week. Scarlett, welcome back. Thanks. What do you think your chances
are of taking home the trophy? No. I don’t think
I’m going to, you know? I know that sounds like
a proper defeatist, but I’m just going to
put it out there now. I don’t think I’m going to win.
And then I can’t be disappointed. Exactly. Rick Edwards, welcome along. Hello,
Richard. Another weekly champion. Another trophy winner.
What’s it going to take this week? An extra special little push
is going to be needed? I’m obviously going
to give it everything. I’m a very competitive man,
as you know. I do know that. I heard Scarlett’s mind games.
Oh, don’t worry about me. No-one believes her! Naga, how lovely
to have you here as well. Yet another champion,
yet another weekly winner. The only reason I won last time…
Here we go. ..is because I stole. People make mistakes. You made a couple of mistakes,
David, didn’t you? And just said the wrong word,
and then I was bang in there. It was never me leading. But that’s
what makes champions. It’s fun. A little bit of everything.
Sorry not sorry. David O’Doherty, you won an
individual day, so anyone who wins an individual day is welcome
back on our champions’ show. But you’re the only person here
without a trophy. How does that feel? Well, Naga beat me the last time.
Beat me several ways. Like crazy. I’m amazed you’ve
turned up again, if I’m honest. Rick is a sociopath. Thank you.
As regards competitiveness. In the dressing room, he put all my
clothes in the bin just before this. I wondered why
you were dressed like that! They were having a panto
in the other studio, and they said, no problem. Let’s go,
let’s go. I’ve banked that. Let’s take a look at the daily
prize you can win for today as well. We’ve got a lovely golden trophy
at the end of the week, but there’s daily prizes as well
for our daily winners, and they’re all gold this time.
Oh, wow. Essentially we’ve spent no extra
money on them, but we’ve rebranded. That’s the way to do it, isn’t it? There is a lovely
golden dressing gown. Wow. There’s a gold and black dartboard
there, golden bookends, golden sparkling wine, that really
is, imagine what is in that. And a very classy
gold pocket watch as well. Scarlett, what would you go for,
do you think? D’you know what? I think I’d quite like to wear your
face, so the dressing gown’s nice. It’s nice, that one.
Right, lovely to have you here. It’s going to be
a super competitive week. Very best of luck
to all of you as well. Shall we play our first
House of Games Champions round? Yes! Our first round today is… Rhyme Time. Played it before. I’m going to
ask you two questions at a time. The answers rhyme with each other.
Fingers on buzzers, please. Here we go. They are all champions.
Only one of them is going to walk away with
the House of Champions Trophy. Who is it going to be?
Here is your first question. Yes? That is Naga. Eton mess, little black dress. Let’s take a look. Eton mess, little black dress.
Well done. Next question. Yes, David?
Optimus Prime and hives. Sorry. That is incorrect. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley…
Very best of luck, Rick. And, um… Er… Hives. No. No, she wasn’t
in the first one. Oh. It was Megan, wasn’t it?
Give me a disease. That rhymes with
Huntington-Whiteley! We are going to have to time
this out. Huntington’s disease? It’s not, I’m afraid. Scarlett?
Is it Megan Fox, chickenpox? The voice of reason! Finally.
Megan Fox and chickenpox. I only got it because
you said Megan. I’m so sorry. You’re not sorry!
You’re so not sorry. Next question. Yes, Naga? Brighton and Hove,
Michael Gove. Is it? Brighton and Hove, Michael Gove,
well played. Absolutely right. Next question. Yes, that is Rick? Hide and seek, Mock The Week.
Is that right? Hide and seek, Mock The Week.
NAGA: Well done. Nicely done. You can see they’re champions. A
lot of buzzer action going on here. Next question. Who is this? And what is the title of this song? POP MUSIC, RHYTHMIC BEAT # I want… # Yes, Rick? Hale and Pace,
Poker Face. Is that right? Hale and Pace, Poker Face,
well done. APPLAUSE
Next question. Yes, Rick? Aristotle and spin the bottle. Is that right? Aristotle, spin the bottle.
That is so clever. So clever, you. Thanks, Scarlett. That’s why you’re
a champion, isn’t it? Sorry. I suppose it is! Now I think about it. Next question.
Fingers on buzzers, everybody. Who is this? And what is this? That is Naga.
Right Said Fred, garlic bread. Right Said Fred, garlic bread. Lovely end to the round,
Naga Munchetty. Well played. Shall we take a look at the scores
at the end of round one? No, just skip it. Here we go. Three people here
are trophy winners. The other one’s David O’Doherty.
David yet to get off the mark there. Scarlett has one. We have joint
leaders Rick and Naga, three each. Very nice round.
Well done. Lovely. It’s going to be
a competitive week, I think. Shall we see what round two is?
Yeah. It’s going to be a pairs round,
round two. It’s going to be… You Spell Terrible. Now, the player in last place
always gets to choose their partner. I have been informed,
I find it hard to believe, by the statisticians, that the
person in last place is David. What? I know, right? David, you get to
choose your partner for this round. Who would you like to pick? I’d like
Naga to be my partner, please. I think that is a very smart choice. Naga and David, you’re a team.
Rick and Scarlett, you’re a team. Now, in this round,
You Spell Terrible, what’s going to happen,
I’ll ask you a series of questions.
Fingers on buzzers. If you buzz in and give me
a correct answer, I will then ask your partner
to spell that answer for a point. So, buzz in if you know it,
but you only get the point if your partner can correctly
spell the answer. How’s your spelling?
It’s all right, actually. I’m quite good at spelling,
yeah. Good. Why don’t you lean in and tap him
on the shoulder and go, “How’s your spelling, Rick?” How’s your spelling?
Actually, not great. Good luck, everybody.
Here’s your first question. Yes, Naga? Sagittarius. Sagittarius is correct,
but for the point, David O’Doherty, can you spell Sagittarius? S. Great start. A. G. I. T. A… BUZZER I think there’s
a couple of Ts in there. I only know it
because it’s my star sign. Double T it is, and finishes
A-R-I-U-S. Sagittarius. No points there.
Fingers on buzzers please. Here’s your next question. Yes, David? Massachusetts. Oh, Naga,
I’m afraid it is Massachusetts! Naga, the nation is behind you
on this one. Very best of luck. M, A… S. S. A. C, H… And we’ll be back after the break! E, U… BUZZER There’s not… It’s U, is it? Or UE, I don’t know.
Let’s have a look, shall we? U… Oh! U, S, E, T… I wouldn’t have got the double T.
The old double T again. I wouldn’t have got double T. Very
well done at home if you spelt that. Next question. That is Naga. Rhinoceros. Rhinoceros is correct. Oh, God! David O’Doherty,
spell rhinoceros, please. R. H. I. N. O… Thus far, everyone here,
everyone at home is comfortable. Now it’s the hard yards. What I’m going to do now is just whack on a classic
dinosaur ending to this. So, S, A… BUZZER Oh, for goodness’ sake!
The classic dinosaur ending. It is not, I’m afraid.
I was going to go saurus. It’s not a dinosaur. Rhino-saurus?
It’s not Rhino-saurus. I know, you put the two together,
you get rhinoceros! Rhino-saurus? Rhino-saurus. You know, everyone now
is going “rhino-saurus”, and no-one can say
rhinoceros any more. Rhinoceros. Rhinoceros. Um, what… I mean, C… Is it C-E-R-O-S?
Is it C-E-R-O-S, or O-U-S? E, R… Just O-S, I think? Oh, rhinoceros! Unlucky. In your defence, though,
rhino-saurus makes sense, because it does look like a sort
of dinosaur. Thank you very much. Yeah, it does look like
a sort of dinosaur. I think people can let
you off with that. Next question. What is the answer to this,
and how do you spell it? Yes, that is Naga? Abracadabra. Abracadabra is the correct answer.
David, come now. Will you spell abracadabra for us?
Absolute silence! Yeah, nothing from us! OK, well…
Can I give you a word of advice? Just “abra” and then “saurus”. It’s essentially abra…
then a classic dinosaur? A. B. R… Oh, my God. A. C, A, D… ..A, B, R… ..A. Yeah! Yay, abracadabra! Well done! There it is. Very nicely done.
Final question in this round. Shall we play, Scarlett? Yeah, let’s play this one.
We’ll go for this one. Here we go. Answer me this, please,
and then spell it. Yes. That is Rick. Guacamole. Guacamole is the correct answer.
Scarlett, spell guacamole, please. G. U. A. C. Guac… Is it O? Or is it A? Well, that’s the question
everyone at home… Because I feel like it’s not
really fair because of my accent. I feel like, you know what I mean?
Because I say guacamole. So sorry. Guac… O? BUZZER Oh, unlucky. It’s A! It is A, then M-O-L-E. I wouldn’t have got it anyway, then. Oh, fine, fine. I wouldn’t have
put an A in it. Guac-A-mole? Yes, guacamole. Oh, well,
I’ve learned something new today. There we go, that’s nice. That’s the end of that round.
Shall we take a look at the scores? Not a huge amount
of difference, I don’t think. Oh, there’s a difference.
There is a difference. Scarlett and David, David got
himself a point with abracadabra, one point each. Rick have three, and we have a clear
leader, Naga, with four points. Well played, Naga. Round three today is going to be… Broken Karaoke. We have a karaoke machine
that’s broken, so all
you are going to see is the first letters of the words
of a particular song. They will come up in the rhythm
that they occur in the song as well, but what are the songs? Fingers on buzzers, please. This is rather lovely.
They’re all Christmas songs. Oh, that’s nice. It is nice,
isn’t it? Here’s your first song. It is from the year 1985. The years all refer to
the first time this version got into the UK top 40. What is this song, please? Yes, Naga?
Santa Claus Is Coming To Town? Oh, is it
Santa Claus Is Coming To Town? SONG PLAYS
Very nice, very good. Those dates will be
when they first charted. That’s Springsteen’s version
of Santa Claus Is Coming To Town. Well played, Naga. Your next one first charted in 1977. 1977. What is this song, please? Scarlett? I’m Dreaming Of
A White Christmas? NAGA: Well done. It’s pretty quick if it is.
Let’s have a listen. Beautiful work. # I’m dreaming # Of a white Christmas… # It’s Bing Crosby,
I think, that, isn’t it? Your next one first charted in 1987. What’s this song, please? The title will come up now. Rick? Fairytale Of New York? Let’s have a little lesson. # The boys of the NYPD… # There you go. Beautiful. # And the bells were ringing
out for Christmas Day… # That was Fairytale,
of course by the Pogues and Kirsty MacColl. Your next one first charted in 1984. Yes, Rick? Last Christmas? Shall we have a little listen? # Last Christmas
I gave you my heart # But the very next day,
you gave it away… # Beautiful. Wham!, of course. That was the last one in that
round of Christmas Broken Karaoke. Well played, everybody.
Let’s take a look at the scores. David, you are still on one point,
Scarlett has two and we have joint leaders, Rick
and Naga, with five points each. Going to be a close one.
APPLAUSE Exciting, isn’t it? Two rounds
to go. Round four today is… But What’s The Question?
But What’s The Question? I’m going to give you the answers
to this round in advance, OK? And here they are. We have four answers in this round. And they are… OK? Those are your answers. David,
I wonder if you do me a favour. But you choose Scarlett’s
answer for this round, please? 23%. OK, Scarlet, your answer is 23%,
but what’s your question? It is one of these three. Is it… More people have got to have pulled
a sickie than that. You think? Yeah. And I think everyone uses other
people’s toothbrushes, don’t they? Oh! No? Naga definitely doesn’t. I use my wife’s,
because it’s sort of part of… That was in the vows, wasn’t it?
Does she know? She does now. Does pulled a sickie
mean kiss in a hospital? In which case, you’re thinking, surely it would be
a higher percentage? I’m going to go for…
Winston Churchill. So you think 23% of Brits
thought Winston Churchill was a fictional character? Let’s take a look.
The answer was 23%. Is the question
the Winston Churchill one? It is, Scarlett, very nicely played. Only 6% of people, Rick,
use each other’s toothbrushes. Well, we’re one of those 6%. Yeah, 94% of people are missing out. So, Naga, the country is with you. Yes. And 19% of people have
pulled a sickie in the past year. Only 19?!
Yeah, 19%. Oh, right. Naga, I wonder if you can
choose an answer for Rick, please. Er… Pick the hardest one.
Oh, yeah. Erm… Sorry, what was that, David?
Nothing. “Pick the hardest one,”
you’re saying. Noted.
Queensland. Queensland is your answer, Rick,
but what is your question? It’s one of these three. Sounds convincing. What do you mean, “appeared”? RICK SIGHS
Hmm. NAGA: I know the answer to this one. Do you?
Go on. No.
Five. So do I. I don’t… No, you don’t! I believe both of those statements. It could be the Queen Victoria, and I just like the emoji one,
because it’s mad. So I think I’m to go with the emoji
one, just for a bit of fun. I’d love that to be called in
by the Australian police. “Alpha, Papa, Bravo, “smiley face but winking.” Let’s take a look. If the answer is Queensland, is the question
emojis on number plates? It is emojis on number plates!
Oh! Have you done that as a story?
Yeah, we reported it. I think there are certain emojis
you’re not allowed to use. Oh, OK. There’s a certain number that you
are allowed to use, but, yeah. That’s a bit of fun, isn’t it?
That’s moving with the times. Rick, you have another job, which is to choose an answer
for Naga, please. I think you can have a crack at
Debbie, Denise, Dianna and Daisy. Thank you.
No problem. So, Naga, your answer is
Debbie, Denise, Dianna and Daisy. What is your question? Is it…? Hmm. It makes sense, doesn’t it, if Dolly
the sheep had siblings, they would all be called names
beginning with the letter D? That makes sense. But… SHE GROWLS Sheep. You’re going sheep?
I’m going sheep. Let’s take a little look. The answer is
Debbie, Denise, Dianna and Daisy. Is the question
Dolly the sheep’s siblings? Three out of three on this round! Yes!
Well played, everyone. David… Yeah. It would be lovely,
the public would love it if we could get four out of four. Scarlett, you’ve got the onerous
task of choosing an answer for David. I think I’m going to go
with Just Off Exeter High Street. Oh, I thought you would choose that. David, your answer is
Just Off Exeter High Street. Yeah.
Is your question…? No. Oh! LAUGHTER That’s amazing! We all know what we want it to be.
Yeah. Yeah. I’m going to go for
The Magic Circle. You’re going to go for
Magic Circle. Seems the sort of thing… We are 100% so far in this round.
Can we make it four out of four? The answer is
Just Off Exeter High Street. Oh, please!
What is the question? Is it The Magic Circle? Please! It is not The Magic Circle. Oh!
NAGA: I’d have gone bench. Would you have gone bench? It’s in North London,
The Magic Circle. It’s in Euston. So what do we think,
narrowest street? Just the romantic in you
goes “bench,” doesn’t it? Got to be the bench. Let’s take a look.
What was the question? Narrowest street. Boring! That’s rubbish. Paul Griffiths’ favourite bench –
he does have a favourite bench – it’s in Wensleydale in Yorkshire. Oh, yeah.
There you go. That’s the end of round four. We have one round to go on Monday’s
House Of Champions. Let’s take a look at the scores. It’s going to be very close
with just Answer Smash to go. David, you are still just
clinging on to that 1. In the mix.
Scarlett, you have 3. The lead is held by Rick and Naga
with 6 points each. Here we go. One round to go, who is going to win
Monday’s House Of Champions? It’s all going to come down to… Answer Smash. There will be
a picture, a clue underneath – smash the answers together,
please. Point for a correct answer,
a point off in this round if you buzz in
and give an incorrect answer. Oh!
Here is your first category. Those will be the pictures,
there will be clues underneath. Smash them together, please. BUZZER Scarlett. Oh, no, you get deducted a point,
don’t you? You do, yeah. Unless you get it right. No, I’m not going to,
I was just guessing. Oh, go on, have a guess. Michael Hoover. LAUGHTER I’d love it if it was. Let’s find out,
is it Michael Hoover? It’s not, is it?
That’s not even a person. It is not, I’m afraid.
Oh, now I’ve only got 2 points, I’m going to be at David’s level. That’s a good level! David, this is literally
your specialist subject. Cycling’s your favourite thing. You know who that is, don’t you?
Who is he? Let’s take a look. The second greatest sprinter
in British cycling history, behind Michael Hoover. Here’s your next cyclist
and your next clue. I recognise him.
Yeah. BUZZER Yes, Rick? Chris Hoystercatcher. Is it Chris Hoystercatcher? It is, Chris Hoy and oystercatcher. That’s very clever, I was trying to
think of a bird beginning with Hoy. There you go,
Chris Hoy, oystercatcher. Well done if you said that at home.
Here’s your next category. Those will be the pictures. Smash them together
with the clues underneath, please. BUZZER
Yes, Rick? Kate Hudson River? Is it Kate Hudson River? Certainly is, well played. Kate Hudson, Hudson River. It’s going to be a long week. For you, certainly. Here is… You’re still on 1,
though, David, so that’s good. Thank you.
Here’s your picture. BUZZER
Yes, Rick? I don’t really want to lose a point,
but I’ll give it a go anyway. I said Michael Hoover, mate. Yeah, OK! Maybe I’ll just go
Michael Hoover again. Jane Asherlock, but it’s also not. Oh, is it Jane Asherlock?
I don’t think it is. It’s not. I mean, well played for buzzing in. You do lose a point, though.
Mm. Shall I tell you?
I have no idea… I know it’s Sherlock. It’s Carrie Fisher!
Carrie Fisherlock. NAGA: That doesn’t look like
Carrie Fisher. Is that Carrie Fisher?! Very well
played if you said that at home. Daughter of Debbie Reynolds,
of course, Carrie Fisher. Next clue. Sorry about that point
you’ve lost there, Rick. I hope it doesn’t affect your
confidence. Thank you, David! Next picture, next clue. BUZZER
Yes, Naga? Laura Dernie. Is it Laura Dernie? It is, Laura Dern and Ernie. Well played. It’s getting very close now. Next category. KLAXON There are no more categories. Oh!
There are no more categories. Who has won
Monday’s House Of Champions? Is it Naga? Is it Rick?
Rick. Is it David? LAUGHTER Let’s find out, shall we? The winner of Monday’s
House Of Champions is… It’s a tie-break! We have a tie-break
between Rick and Naga. Lovely! We are going to do
one final Answer Smash. Mm-hm. Fingers on buzzers, both of you.
Buzz in, give me a correct answer… I’m now sweating!
..you’re our winner. Properly clammy. If you buzz in and give me an
incorrect answer, your opponent is the winner.
Who’s it going to be? The category is… That will be the picture,
there will be a clue underneath. Buzz in and give me a correct
answer, you are the winner. Buzz in and give me an incorrect
answer, your opponent is the winner. Very best of luck to both of you,
it’s been brilliant all the way through today’s show.
Here is your question. BUZZER
Yes? That is Rick. Strawhide? Is it straw and Rawhide,
making Strawhide? It’s the right answer! Rick Edwards.
Yes! Well played. Grace under pressure, Rick,
very nicely done. What a great first show
in our House Of Champions week. Rick, you get to choose yourself
a golden prize. What would you like from this
collection? The dartboard, please, Richard. Rick Edwards takes home
a House Of Games golden dartboard. Well played, Rick.
APPLAUSE Let’s take a look at
the weekly leaderboard, shall we? Only one day down,
and here’s how we stand. But we have a week of
champions battles up ahead. I’ll see you all same time,
same place tomorrow. We’ll see you as well same time,
same place, on the House Of Games. APPLAUSE Yeah, I think the gold is… Yeah, it’s coming off
on my hands. Lovely stuff, yeah! LAUGHTER
