dumb britain Tipping Point, ITV
Ben Shephard: What’s the most northerly county in England?
Contestant 1: Geography’s not my strong point. I’ll pass it over.
Contestant 2: Well, I’m thinking Berwick-on-Tweed. What county is that in? I’ll go Norfolk.
Shephard: No, not Norfolk. What would you have said?
Contestant 1: I’d have said Birmingham.

Shephard: What mountain is the highest point on the continent of Africa?
Contestant: I’m thinking of a couple. Kilimanjaro is very tall and I’m thinking Mont Blanc, but is that in Europe because it’s French? I’ll stick with Mont Blanc.


Pointless, BBC1
Alexander Armstrong: Name a two-word space on the Monopoly board.
Contestant: Fenchurch Street Station.
