The BBC TV edition of Pointless featuring Jimmy Cricket is on Saturday (14 March).
The programme will be broadcast on BBC One at 6.05pm.
The Ireland-themed edition also features Foster and Allen, Pauline McLynn, Vogue Williams, Clodagh McKenna and Anna Haugh.
Radio and television broadcaster Henry Kelly (pictured above with Jimmy), who presented Going for Gold from 1987 to 1996, is another of the contestants.
Pointless is a quiz in which contestants try to score as few points as possible.
‘What a fun show to be part of’
To do this, they must come up with the correct but obscure answers to general knowledge questions.
All the questions asked were previously to a panel of 100 individuals in a pre-conducted public survey.
Alexander Armstrong hosts the show with help from Richard Osman.
The programme first aired in 2009 and has had 22 regular series, plus 11 celebrity ones.
Belfast-born Jimmy, who now lives in Rochdale, Greater Manchester, said he really enjoyed the experience.
“Well folks, what a fun show to be part of,” he said.
“Will be televised on Saturday 14th March, let’s make it a date everyone!”
