I Watched It To Catch Bob Monkhouse Only
13 December 2002 | by Big Movie FanSee all my reviews

Celebrity Squares was a UK version of the U.S. game show Hollywood Squares. The concept was rather boring in my opinion like that other quiz show Blankety Blank but it was the host that provided the entertainment.

There were two contestants who would play a version of noughts and crosses on a huge game board. On each square was a celebrity. Bob Monkhouse would ask the celebrities a question and the contestants would have to guess if the answer given by the celebrity was right or wrong. If they were right then the contestant would win either an X or O on that particular square.

Well, that was the format. Nothing exciting but the great Bob Monkhouse saved the day as usual. Bob Monkhouse is believed to know more jokes than anyone else in the world and watching this show I can believe it.

The show was cancelled in 1979 but returned in 1993 for a few years. If you see any repeats on Sky or Cable TV, then watch it to catch all of Bob Monkhouse's jokes.
