Over the years Vicki has competed in a vast array of TV quizzes and games shows testing among other things, her general knowledge, cooking skills and physical ability. To date Vicki has made two appearances on what must rank as one of the most challenging of TV quizzes. Not only does it require the contestants to know the answers to the questions but also to choose a pointless answer as determined by a public survey!
Vicki’s first encounter on the show saw her partner Ian Lavender of Dad’s Army fame. The couple did rather well succumbing only to the winning team of Meera Syal and Phil Cornwell in the final round. Other competitors included Simon Day, and Arabella Weir and Ewen MacIntosh and Simon Greenall.
Her next appearance saw her team up with Allo Allo co-star Richard Gibson in the comedy edition, competing against the likes of Pauline McLlynn and Hugh Dennis, Adil Ray and Charlie Higson and Jean Fergusson and Tina Molone. This time Vicki and her partner emerged triumphant complete with Pointless Trophy. Although the duo didn’t quite manage to hit the jackpot, they did leave with sizable donations for their respective charities.
