Pointless hosts Richard Osman and Alexander Armstrong often get themselves into lengthy debates and today was no different.
They met Andy, who works on developing metallics for aircraft, and were quick to grill him about his job.
Andy said in response to being asked who he was: “I’m an aircraft engineer and a Manchester City supporter.”
Taken aback, Alexander said: “Which bit of the aircraft do your design?”
Andy explained he just worked on the metallic structures, to which the host continued: “Hang on, most of it is metallic isn’t it?”
The player revealed: “Not these days, a lot of composites now.”
Alexander could barely believe what he was hearing and he questioned whether that was really the case.
At this point, Richard chipped in, joking: “Yeah mate, so many composites.”
Richard continued: “Do you really think that most of an aircraft is metallic?”
Alexander giggled as he admitted he had been taken by surprise.
