Madeline Smith does Celebrity Mastermind!

The lovely Madeline Smith will be a contestant on the BBC's Celebrity Mastermind this Christmas! The special festive series of shows, all hosted by John Humphrys, will see some familiar faces put to the test as they sit in the famous black leather chair! 

Facing two rounds of questions - the first on their specialist subject and then a round on general knowledge - the contestants joining Madeline include the comedian Elis James, Love Island's Montana Brown and Casualty actor George Rainsford. I might be showing my ignorance once again, but Maddie is the only contestant I actually know!

Of course Madeline has enjoyed a long career as an actress, with appearances in Carry On Matron, the James Bond film Live and Let Die, Up Pompeii with Frankie Howerd and several well-received films by Hammer Horror. A talented lady but also a really down to earth, friendly and welcoming one too, I had the great pleasure of interviewing Madeline in 2016. You can read that here: Carry On Blogging Interview: Madeline Smith. I also had the good fortune to meet Madeline in person at an event in 2017 and you can read all about that right here: Carry On Blogging: A Wonderful Evening with Madeline Smith.

Apparently the specialist subjects on the show are: The Welsh Football Team, Desperate Housewives, Kew Gardens and the Back to the Future film trilogy. Hmm, I wonder which will be Madeline's?

The episode of Celebrity Mastermind featuring Madeline Smith will be broadcast on BBC1 on Saturday 29 December at 6.30pm.
