Fire-Eaters v Eurovisionaries

Series 12 - Episode 9 Fire-Eaters v Eurovisionaries



Ah, it’s so annoying when you really should know the answer. “Oh you’re joking!” wails an Only Connect-er. “I’ve seen [the answer] three times a year for most of my life!” That’s the beauty of Only Connect, it can make you forget what you know, only to remind you when it’s too late.

Tonight there’s a very jolly battle between the Fire-Eaters (they love curry) and the Eurovisionaries (obviously they love the Eurovision Song Contest). One competitor is very good at plucking correct answers out of the air with about three seconds left on the clock and everyone is very bad at joining in with one of Victoria Coren Mitchell’s ad-hoc singalongs.


Victoria Coren Mitchell welcomes spicy food lovers the Fire-Eaters and song contest fans the Eurovisionaries to the quiz testing general knowledge and lateral thinking. The teams of three must make connections between groups of four things that may appear at first not to be linked, with one set of clues consisting of From the roots (Greek), We can (Spanish), We ourselves (Gaelic) and Party of Wales (Welsh).
