University Challenge

In a bid for glory, stars from the BBC and ITV will go head to head in a special episode of University Challenge for BBC Children in Need.

For one night only, Jeremy Paxman hands over the reins to journalist and broadcaster Kirsty Wark, who will once again host the proceedings as famous faces from the BBC and ITV compete against each other in separate teams for BBC Children in Need.

Rick Edwards will lead Team BBC and will be helped by fellow celebrity team mates Radio 4’s Mishal Husain, Mock the Week Comedian Angela Barnes and impressionist Jon Culshaw from Radio 4’s Dead Ringers.

Team ITV will be led by Broadcaster and Journalist Kaye Adams and consist of celebrity guests Dr Ranj Singh, comedian Russell Kane and Loose Women’s Denise Welch.

Both teams will be giving it their all for BBC Children in Need, but who will emerge victorious in this star-studded battle of the brains?
