    But she hit an obstacle very early on in the game when she was asked: “I love Iain Stirling, he’s my second favourite person from Scotland, my No 1 has to be….”

    After being given a few second to write down an answer – Laura sheepishly admitted she “couldn’t think of anyone from Scotland,” drawing gasp and laughter from the panel. Scot Iain stood up and yelled: “this is the strongest case for independence ive ever seen,” before yelling: “freedom.”

    Fans at home were stunned. “The most blank thing on this is Laura’s brain,” penned one fan, while another added: “Oh dear Laura. Oh dear.”

    Host Bradley shared a sweet tribute to Paul O'Grady as Blankety Blank returns to our screens Saturday (September 23).

    Speaking to The Sun's TV Mag, Bradley said: "Paul was an absolute genius, and his passing is a great loss. There was something so wonderful about his character Lily Savage. She had the most cutting tongue and could get away with just about anything.

    "I was lucky enough to feature as a contestant on the show when Lily was presenting. Paul was an irreplaceable class act."

    Paul hosted the game show as his iconic drag alter ego from 1997 to 2002. During his time hosting the show he had multiple big names such as Davina McCall, Sir Ian McKellen, Sophie Lawrence and the late Dale Winton.
