‘Caress-a?’: Pointless contestant’s hilarious pronunciation of Cressida Dick resurfaces

A Pointless contestant's hilarious mispronunciation of Cressida Dick's name has resurfaced following her resignation as Metropolitan Police commissioner.

Billy's answer, of course, was not accepted, with the presenters later clarifying Dick's name.
