Heat 12, 2017
Russell Davies hosts the last of the 2017 heats, to decide who takes the last automatic place in the semi-finals.
In the last of the 2017 Brain of Britain heats the competitors are from Northwich in Cheshire, Bingley in West Yorkshire, Wigton in Cheshire and Hilton in Derbyshire. The winner will go through to the semi-finals, and it's also the last chance for a runner-up to notch up a high enough score to qualify. Russell Davies, the competitors and the audience are the guests of the UTC at Media City UK in Salford.
