Alnwick brothers on BBC quiz show

A pair of Alnwick brothers tried to prove how pointless their knowledge was as they appeared on a BBC One quiz programme.

Jonny and Nick Denton were one of the teams of contestants on Pointless last week.

The quiz show is presented by Alexander Armstrong, who coincidentally grew up in north Northumberland, and Richard Osman.

For those that haven’t seen it, Pointless is a quiz in which contestants try to score as few points as possible by plumbing the depths of their general knowledge to come up with the answers no one else can think of.

The pair made their first appearance on last Thursday’s episode in which they made it through the first two rounds before losing the head-to-head and missing a place in the final.

They returned for Friday’s episode where they fell at the same hurdle.
