Last year I went on Mastermind, and came last. I haven’t learned my lesson though, as I’m on it again tonight. In fact, this was the first episode recorded of the current series, and I was the first contestant in the Black Chair.
Tonight, I’m answering questions on the Four Gospels, while my fellow contestants answer questions on Margaret Atwood’s MaddAddam trilogy, flags of the world, and the colour films of Danny Kaye.
If you want to keep an eye on me, look for a man in an ill-fitting suit: that’s John Humphrys. I went a step even further in terms of bad fashion sense and had sideburns. Yes, I know I look stupid, but whether I am is something for you to find out tonight.
Mastermind is on BBC Two at 20.00.
