Michelle Gayle (Fiona Wilson), Gwyneth Powell (Mrs McClusky), Paula Ann Bland (Claire Scott), Lee Macdonald (Zammo Maguire), Erkan Mustafa (Roland Browning), Francessa Martinez (Rachel Burns), Stuart Organ (Mr Robson), Alison Bettles (Fay Lucas) and Todd Carty (Tucker Jenkins) gathered back at Television Centre in late November to film the special episode. Whilst Erkan, Lee, Gwyneth and Michelle have all appeared before, this was a new experience for the rest.

Paula Ann Bland was representing her former co-star Linda Slater’s (Susi McMahon) charity The Good Grief Trust (Keep visiting GHG for a feature on this charity soon). As a result Linda Slater joined her co stars backstage!23559636_10213159184347312_5870148899110330953_n



A great time was had by all, and whilst we can’t reveal the result, we can reveal that one cast member gave another a pointless answer, whilst another was accused of cheating!

Celebrity Pointless – Grange Hill is set to be broadcast on BBC 1 in 2018.
