Richard Osman

Richard is the co-host of BBC One’s Pointless. In this episode he tried to get the following into Room 101:

  • Zoo fillers – Richard doesn’t like any of the animals that are not part of the main 5 animals you go to see which are the lions, tigers, monkeys, penguins and the meerkats.
  • Cobblers – He feels that they shouldn’t exist in modern life.
  • People telling him he is tall – he already knows and is reminded of it on a daily life.

Roisin Conaty

Roisin Conaty is a multi-award winning writer and performer. In this episode she tried to get the following into Room 101:

  • Bambi - Because it was the first cartoon that started off a whole generation of sad cartoons and she hates sad cartoons.
  • Selfies – Roisin thinks the vain ones are annoying.
  • Greeting cards with writing already on them.

Joan Bakewell

Joan Bakewell is an English journalist and television presenter. Here is what she tried to get into Room 101:

  • Gardening - She doesn’t like gardening as it’s housework out of doors and it’s hard work.
  • Customer service surveys – Because there aren’t enough options, at least not the ones that we want.
  • Chewing Gum – It loses its flavour very quickly and you then have a mouth full of rubber that doesn’t do anything.
