Chris talks about watching Star Wars back to back at the cinema. Tina and Dave want to watch Bridesmaids but Chris thinks it’s a boring chick flick.

07:48 Rob DJ’s Monday Night Pub Quiz
The current scores are very tight. Dom has 41 points, Tina has 42, Chris has 43 but Dave is in the lead with 46 points.

Question 1: Name the artist; ‘White Flag’ from 2003
Question 2: What is the name of the fictional school in the TV series Glee?
Question 3: How many hands does Big Ben have in total?
Question 4: If a pair of dice are thrown and land on a 1 and 3 what is the sum of the numbers visible?
Question 5: Ha Book Berserk is an anagram of this headline-maker, 2 words.

Aled gives the options ofWilliam McKinley, William McKlusky, William McKorby High School for Question 2.
There is some confusion over Question 4. Aled thinks to ‘land on’ a 1 and 3 would result in the dice facing down on 1 and 3, and has worked the answer out using this method; the rest of the team think that the numbers would be face up if they were ‘landed on’. Aled can’t even get the answer he worked out earlier this morning. Chris decides to help him out.

08:04 Rob DJ’s Monday Night Pub Quiz Answers
Answer 1: Dido. Dom, Dave and Chris got it right; so did Ed from Chester who text in.
Answer 2: William McKinley High School. Chris and Dave got it; so did Mike who text in.
Answer 3: None. Chris got it right; so did Matt from Poole who text in.
Answer 4: 32. Chris got it right; so did Craig from Plymouth. Dave, Dom and Tina worked out the answer using Aled’s ‘face down’ method and got 38 but Aled confirms that the correct way is the ‘face up’ method. Dave, Dom and Tina aren’t happy about being misled by Aled so everyone is awarded a point much to Chris’ annoyance.
Answer 5: Rebekah Brooks. Everyone got it; so did Phil McCluff from Leeds who text in.

Chris thinks he’s been robbed because everyone got a point for Question 4 despite he being the only one to get it right. Dom almost gets disqualified for turning his text screen on before being the end of the quiz.

The new scores are; Dom and Tina are last with 44 points, Chris is second with 48 and Dave is first with 50 points.

Rob DJ has text Aled to say he wants to give Chris a bonus point but Aled decides against it.

Dom interviewed Sir Michael Caine yesterday at a posh hotel. Chris plays some clips from the interview. Dom talked to him about the new film Cars 2 as well as ask him some random questions such as if he lives next door to Sian from Hereford but Sir Michael doesn’t even know where Hereford is; how many shoes he has, a lot but never any with laces. Dom then plays the game ‘Movie or Whovie?’ which asks Sir Michael if he remembers a list of some movies he starred in but some are made up. He gets a bit too detailed in his answers.
