Terry the Bull helps Keith hit Pointless jackpot
Updated 9:20am Friday 24th January 2014 in Sport
TERRY ‘the Bull’ Jenkins helped two men scoop the jackpot of a television game show, writes PAUL ROGERS.
Keith Lillywhite and Lee Andrews appeared on BBC1’s Pointless on Friday and won £4,250 for correctly guessing that Jenkins had been a Premier League darts player since 2010.
The aim of the game on Pointless is to try to respond to questions with the most obscure – but correct - answers given by members of the public.
Keith lived in Hereford from 1982 to 2005 and played football for Civil Service and cricket for Marden.
The 46-year-old, who now lives in Cheltenham, said that he was glad that a “local hero” helped him win the money.
“It was nice to get a Hereford answer and have a bit of local knowledge,” said Keith, who is an IT project manager.
“I knew Terry was from Ledbury and I watch a bit of him on television, which is why I went for him."
Keith, whose parents live in Credenhill, told viewers that he would spend his share of the money on the recent Ashes tour in Australia.
But, he instead used it to go on a family holiday to France.
“I think it was a wise decision not to go to the Ashes considering that England got thrashed,” said Keith.
