Celebrity Mastermind viewers in stitches at Casualty star’s ‘Sharon’ answer

Casualty actress Amanda Henderson may have already made the TV moment of the year with a truly hilarious answer on Celebrity Mastermind.

Amanda – who plays Robyn Miller on the hospital drama – appeared on the show yesterday with the likes of Paul Chuckle, Levi Roots and Geoff Norcott.

Having smashed her specialist subject of songs from Disney films between 1989-1999, the actress then took the famous seat for the general knowledge section.

And, it’s safe to say things started to go wrong for the 33-year-old.

John Humphrys asked her: “The 2009 book ‘No one is too small to make a difference is a collection of speeches made by a Swedish climate change activist, what is her name?”

“Swedish” and “climate change activist” were strong hints at the answer of Great Thunberg.

But Amanda was none the wiser and decided to have a complete stab in the dark – with “Sharon”.

The side-splitting moment has exploded online after the episode aired on BBC One yesterday.

Comedian Mark Smith tweeted the clip, captioning it: “2020 is cancelled.”

It has since been retweeted more than 11,000 times.

"Sharon has to be best quiz answer in 2020,” one viewer responded. “Great start to the decade.”

Another commented: "I'm meant to be at work in eight hours and I'm awake and crying at Greta Thunberg being called Sharon."

And a third said: "This was one of the all-time classics. I might have to start watching Casualty now."

Unfortunately for Amanda, it wasn’t the only mishap she had on the general knowledge section.

When asked to name an Irish political party during a certain period, she answered with the “IRA”.

Take a bow Amanda, take a bow.

The actress only managed to get four general knowledge answers correct and finished joint second on the show alongside Levi Roots.

Geoff Norcott walked away Mastermind champ with 13 points.

Celebrity Mastermind is available to watch on BBC iPlayer now.
