Channel 5 today announced that it will be the new home for the long-running hit quiz show Eggheads, as it heads into its 22nd series. The much-loved show will continue to be fronted by broadcaster and presenter of Channel 5’s daily show, Jeremy Vine.
The series has found a new home on the channel where Vine will be joined by some of Britain’s most experienced quizzers. Vine announced the news live on today’s Jeremy Vine Show on Channel 5.
One of Britain’s best loved TV quizzes, the series sees amateur quizzers take on arguably the most formidable quiz team in Britain, The Eggheads - made up of some of the country's most elite quizzers in a David versus Goliath battle.
The team of challengers compete against them, across a series of hard hitting, high-brow general knowledge question rounds, with the aim of winning a cash prize. If the Eggheads win, the prize rolls over until they can be beaten.
Applications for the series are now open and teams can apply by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
