AS Henley’s Poppy Appeal organiser, Shirley Lees is very good at helping to raise money.
However, it seems she is not quite so good at winning it after appearing on the BBC quiz show Pointless recently.
Her mistake was confusing the actors Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder.
Shirley, who says the show is her “secret vice”, teamed up with old friend Sarah Hunt for the show in which pairs of contestants have to find the most obscure answers to questions in order to win as few points as possible when compared with 100 people asked the same questions.
On their first appearance, the women failed to make the final after Shirley thought that Depp played Kim Boggs in the film Edward Scissorhands when in fact the answer was Ryder. (Depp, of course, played the title role.)
