Britain’s Brightest

BBC talent show with a difference – the valued asset here is intelligence.

Hosted by Clare Balding, in each show six candidates compete in challenges testing their mathematical, literacy, social and logic skills, as well as memory, speed and perception. The final will be on Saturday 9th February – where five finalists will battle for the prize of £50,000 and the title of ‘Britain’s Brightest’.

Some of the unusual challenges so far include, attempting to pick two people from a group, whose weight adds to a certain amount (e.g. 40 stone) and being locked in a box and solving a series of puzzles in order to blast the doors off and escape.

The heats are now finished and in next week’s hour long episode, the four runners up from each show will fight for the last place in the final.
