Synopsis

If horoscopes are popular, and game shows are popular, a game show about horoscopes must be popular, right? A fallacy proved by the passage of time, if ever there was.

Nicholas Willmott says:

My memory of the main part is vague, but the questions were multiple choice, with 3 answers to choose from. The contestants had to put their answers in (by pressing a button), but they had to agree with the astrologer. I never really understood the logic of that, does anyone else have a better memory of how that worked?
The final part of the programme was "Call A Sign". Tom asked the contestant to call a sign, and the contestant would be asked a question. Again, I'm not 100% sure, my memory is vague here, but I guess the question must have been somehow connected to the sign, e.g. Virgo, Libra.

David Munns adds:

In the final round, the contestant faced a grid containing 12 famous faces with the zodiac symbols around the outside. The contestant said a sign (say, Virgo). Tom then reads three clues related to one of stars on the board. Match all 12 stars to their correct birth sign within 2 minutes 30 seconds and a picture of the star prize would reveal itself.
