The National Lottery People’s Quiz

BBC One has announced the biggest-ever nationwide search for quiz show talent in the UK to take part in a brand new series – The National Lottery People’s Quiz.

Throughout January 2007, Jamie Theakston, William G Stewart, Kate Garraway and Myleene Klass will be hosting open auditions across the UK to search for undiscovered quiz show talent.

Host Jamie Theakston says: “It’s certainly one of the most exciting shows I’ve ever worked on. For the first time the whole nation can compete against each other to find out who is the best quizzer in the country.”

There are 200,700 chances to take part and contestants must answer ten general knowledge questions correctly in a row to get through to the next round.

Pass through the next three rounds successfully and you could be the guaranteed winner.

Whether you’ve got a double first from Oxford or an honours degree from the university of life, The People’s Quiz is open to you.

In a unique twist, every question for the initial heats will be published in advance of the auditions, allowing everyone in the UK to test their general knowledge and polish their quiz show skills.

Questions are available now at for potential contestants to start practicing their general knowledge.

But with hundreds of thousands of questions on subjects ranging from Posh and Becks to party politics, only the very brightest will make it through to the final and the chance to win a life-changing cash prize.
