Mumsie's Questions

Mumsie's Questions
Cell 13 Series 1 mentalThree MinutesNot Automatic Lock-in


A popular game that would reappear in the next three series. Originally billed as a fortune teller, Richard began referring to her as his 'mumsie'. After being presented with the three pieces of silver that Richard gave them before entering, she would ask the contestant up to three riddles - a correct answer to one would win them the crystal. The crystal rose from under the table into her crystal ball, which she would lift off. Some early contestants would grab the crystal instead of waiting for her to present them with it, much to her anger. Fortunately, contestants from series two onward would have seen the show on TV before auditioning and so knew that this was not the done thing. In early shows, Mumsie identifies herself as Madam Sandra.
