Andrea McLean blasted by BBC viewers over Celebrity Mastermind blunder | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV
Andrea McLean, 53, took part in Celebrity Mastermind on Saturday night, calling The Sound of Music her “absolute favourite” film growing up. However, having chosen it for her specialist subject, many BBC viewers took to Twitter to criticise the former Loose Women star for “not knowing” enough about the film.
Andrea was the first to take a seat on the Black Chair this evening, stunning in a red blazer and tight black leather trousers.
The former Loose Women panellist said on Instagram that she believed she would be the future “Marie Von Trapp” after the show.
However, many BBC viewers took to Twitter to criticise the author for only scoring five on her specialist subject.

She wrote: “I can’t believe I got to sit in the #BlackChair and take part in Celebrity Mastermind!! You can see how I get on answering questions about my Specialist Subject, which was…
“The Sound of Music! It was my absolute FAVOURITE film growing up, and yes, I even ended up going to a convent school and toyed with the idea of becoming a nun.
“I also went on a school trip around that time to a fire station and I then decided I’d rather be a firefighter, running into blazing buildings, rescuing people and putting out fires.
“It would have definitely been a unique niche if I’d become a firefighting nun, but it’s got me thinking… How funny that I ended up 40 years later running a business called This Girl Is On Fire, helping women have confidence in themselves?”
