Britain's Brightest Episode 1 of 6

Clare Balding hosts a talent show with a twist. Rather than sing or dance, contestants must use the power of their minds to tackle a series of nail-biting challenges and compete for a prize of £50,000.

The hopefuls must face a series of entertaining challenges that will test everything from their emotional intelligence to their processing speed. The potential for embarrassment is high as they try to deduce personal information about a crowd of strangers while a daunting multitasking challenge - Stop The Clock - will decide which player books their place in the final.
