Alexander, 49, and his Pointless co-host Richard Osman, 48, were on hand to welcome four pairs of contestants onto today’s edition of the BBC quiz show.
All hoping to get their hands on the jackpot prize, the contestants were asked a series of questions based on a variety of topics.
When a contestant gets their first chance to attempt a pointless answer, Alexander likes to learn a little more about them and what they get up to away from the show.
When it came to learning more about contestant Andy however, things ended a little differently after the host made an unusual request.
I’m not going to do that
Alexander said to the contestant: “Andy, welcome. Great to have you here from Edinburgh.
“And what keeps you busy in Edinburgh, Andy?” the host asked, to which the contestant replied: “I’ve got two small children, Scarlett and Leo.
“They’re four and two, so they keep me very busy - keep me very busy indeed,” Andy explained, before Alexander enquired: “And what do you do?”
Still believing the host was asking about his children, the contestant said: “Sing along to Disney songs, pretend I’m a tiger, go to the zoo…the usual sort of dad stuff.”
Intrigued about Andy’s admission of role playing with his children, Alexander asked: “How do you do the tiger?”
Seemingly embarrassed and surprised by the request, Andy replied: “No, I’m not going to do that.”
