Review

Made by the creators of The Chase, this new weekday quiz show has the usual hard-to-follow rules but fairly simple general knowledge questions. So, if University Challenge is a little too intellectual for you (as it is for most of us), you’ll probably score better with this. 

 

There’s a quick-fire round that barely gives you time to breathe, let alone answer, as well as multiple-choice questions about Henry VIII’s children or films directed by Steven Spielberg. It’s presented by Omid Djalili, who cracks a lot of jokes on his first outing as a quizmaster. But a couple of today’s contestants turn out to be almost as funny as he is. 

 

Summary

Quiz hosted by Omid Djalili in which nine contestants - Carol, Matthew, Akua, Niamh, Jane, Rhys, Alan, Spencer and Joe - are assigned a number between one and nine. They are then whittled down to a final four, and the combination of numbers they are assigned represents the size of the jackpot they will play for in a final round.
