Alexander Armstrong: We’re looking for the prince who married Queen Elizabeth II in 1947. He’s from Greece.
Faryl Smith (a singer, m’lud): I don’t really know the answer, but I’ve met Prince Edward a few times, and he’s a lovely person, so I’m going to go for Prince Edward.


Tipping Point, ITV
Ben Shephard: In which decade was Queen Elizabeth II’s youngest child born?
Contestant: The 1840s.

Shephard: On clothing, which fibre label translates into German as “Baumwolle” and into Spanish as “algodón”?
Contestant: Armani.

Shephard: Who said: “I’ve had a perfectly wonderful evening, but this wasn’t it”? Was it Dorothy Parker, WC Fields or Groucho Marx?
Contestant: Well, Groucho Marx was one of the Three Stooges, so it wasn’t him.
