Produced by Anglia Television and debuting in January 1984, The Zodiac Game paired members of the public with celebrities of the same star sign who would then answer questions about how the other would respond in amusing imaginary situations based on their astrological sign.
Scouse comedian and Name That Tune host Tom O’Connor posed the questions while resident astrologers Bernard Fitzwalter (1984) and Russell Grant (1985) were on hand to interpret and explain the correct answers and the “science” behind them.
Guest panellists included Leslie Phillips, Suzi Quatro, Nicholas Parsons, June Whitfield, John Inman, Faith Brown, Paula Wilcox, Valerie Leon, Barbara Windsor, Liz Fraser, Melvyn Hayes, Chris Tarrant, Lionel Blair, Jess Conrad, Carol Hawkins, Bernie Winters, Maureen Lipman, Pat Coombs, Aimi MacDonald, Madeline Smith, Lynsey de Paul, Sylvia Sims, Floella Benjamin, Nyree Dawn Porter, Graeme Garden, Bill Oddie, Kenny Lynch, Roy Kinnear, Duggie Brown, Isla St Clair, Lynda Baron, Sue Nicholls, Dana, Stu Francis, Sheila Steafel, Frank Carson, Harry Fowler, Derek Griffiths, Andrew Sachs, Matthew Kelly, William Rushton, Derek Jameson, Nigel Dempster, Eve Pollard, Sabina Franklyn and Robert Gillespie.
