Odd One Out

PAUL DANIELS haunted this grim quiz where contestants had to say what was the odd one out (see?) of four things. When contestant accidentally buzzed in when only one thing was revealed, and identified it correctly as odd one out but had to say what linked the other three unseen items, “hilarity” ensued.

    I remember thinking it was odd that Paul Daniels was presenting a quiz when at the time I had only seen him on his magic show.

    I think it was Les Dennis & Dustin Gee who did a great spoof of it, with a contestant giving stupid answers & Paul eventually making him vanish with wave of his magic wand!

    Unlike Every Second Counts this never got a very prestigious timeslot from what I remember, usually being shown on weekdays mostly in the spring- summer. The last series was screened earlier in the year.

    According to the Gameshows site, like Telly Addicts the “winner stays on” rule was changes after a contestant kept on winning, with a 3 game limit being imposed for the last series.
