Guess the joke...

| Updated:

Pointless had viewers’ eyes on stalks from the outset of last night’s celebrity episode of the BBC1 show.

Who is Tamara Beckwith?

In the 1990s, the tabloids became obsessed with a couple of posh girls – Tamara and Tara Palmer-Tomkinson.

They spent their lives flitting from restaurants du jour to exclusive nightclubs.

They were long, lithe and often draped in very little but expensive clothing. And the paparazzi loved trailing their privileged but somewhat car-crash lives.

The duo also had a reputation for being wild. Tamara had a baby as a teenager. And Tara, who died in February 2017, suffered cocaine addiction in her partying heyday.

Tamara now has three children, and is a very glamorous grandmother. In her career, she has designed jewellery, run a photographic gallery and appeared on The Jump.
