Pointless featured an Ann Widdecombe ‘lookalike’ last night, according to viewers.
Monday (November 16) afternoon’s repeat episode of the BBC quiz show, hosted by Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman, featured duo Roz and Dec.
On social media, a number of viewers said they thought Roz looked just like former MP Ann Widdecombe.
Some of those watching at home joked that she could even be Ann’s sister.
What did viewers say about Pointless contestant Roz?
One said on Twitter: “Ann Widdecombe on #pointless.”
A second tweeted: “Did Roz base her hairstyle on Ann Widdecombe?”
Another replied: “Pleased I’m not the only one who thought Roz looked like Widdecombe, particularly from the side view #Pointless.”
Someone else said: “Even sounds like her (a bit).”

“Has anyone spotted Roz and Ann Widdecombe in the same room?” joked a sixth.
Another quipped: “Didn’t know Ann Widdecombe had a sister #Pointless.”
Roz and Dec got the final round but unfortunately didn’t win the jackpot.

Ann Widdecombe was back on screens recently for a controversial Channel 5 documentary.
The politician presented World’s Most Luxurious Prison, which took viewers around Norway’s Halden Prison, introducing them to its staff and inhabitants.

It’s a maximum security site, but it doesn’t have any bars and one inmate even said of it: “This is a spa, it’s a holiday resort!”
Ann agreed, as she said when describing Halden: “Plush apartments for rapists and murderers….”
The programme also revealed that inmates at Halden can have sex with their partners during visits, which happen up to twice a week.
The prisoners there live in groups in apartments kitted out with lounge areas, kitchenettes, en-suite bathrooms and TVs.
