Joan Collins and her husband Percy were just on Who Wants to be a Millionaire? For £16,000 they had this question...
Who is the current Father of the House of Commons?
A. John Gummer
B. Alex Salmond
C. Tam Dalyell
D. Menzies Campbell
Just as well they didn't attempt to answer it becasue Chris Tarrant would have had egg all over his face. The correct answer is, in fact, Rt Hon Alan Williams MP. Tam Dalyell was indeed Father of the House, but he retired at the last election. Tsk Tsk.
UPDATE: This is very odd. Derek Laud and Edwina Currie are now in the hotseat. This programme must have been recorded about a year ago because I was one of Derek Laud's phone-a-friends (supposedly for my knowledge of sport!). Luckily I wasn't called... Perhaps the programme is a repeat, but it doesn't say so in the paper.
