At the start of Strictly season, many BBC One viewers will have tuned in early so as to make sure not to miss the first show – and spotted former judge Arlene Phillips joining the ranks of Pointless Celebrities.
Ex dancer and Strictly Come Dancing original panel member Arlene had a crack at the teatime game show which sees celebrity pairs aim to find the most obscure answer to questions posed to 100 people before the programme.
But in a round asking contestants to name chemical elements in the second half of the alphabet, Arlene left viewers wondering what was going on.
There are so many things wrong with "flame" as a chemical element I don't know where to begin. What is Arlene on? #PointlessCelebrities— Lily Tomlinson (@lilyvtomlinson) September 3, 2016

I want to be in Arlene's head. It seems such a lovely place to be. #PointlessCelebrities— Claire Grylls (@Glavlar) September 3, 2016
However, host Richard Osman was under no illusions about what the viewers were waiting for.
I'm aware that everyone watching #PointlessCelebrities is thinking "hurry up boys, Judge Rinder is going to be on Strictly".— Richard Osman (@richardosman) September 3, 2016
