Alexander Armstrong's Pointless sidekick on the quiz show concepts that should never have been made

I have made some terrible TV shows in my life. I am honestly blushing just thinking about them. I've never actually intended to do this, but from time to time you lose control of the steering and can only watch as your project drives into a brick wall. We all make mistakes, right? But not all of our mistakes end up being presented by Nick Knowles on primetime TV. So, with my own inadequacies in mind, here are some of the most pointless gameshows of all time, each one an example of the different traps well-meaning producers endlessly fall into. It is only fair that I start with one of my very own…

Keating is currently in the middle of a divorce from wife Yvonne, but Cornell said that their marriage was already in trouble before the affair began. "I have constantly been painted as the scarlet woman who ruined a perfect marriage," she told The Sun. "It couldn't be further from the truth. The marriage was already in trouble before either Ronan or his wife knew who I was." Cornell met Keating when she was a backing dancer for Boyzone during their 2009 UK and Ireland tour.
