Do you, or someone you know, have what it takes to sit in the famous black chair?

Know enough about your Specialist Subject to be forensically tested?

How’s your general knowledge? Are you a pub quiz whizz?

Mastermind presented by Bolton's own Clive Myrie is on the look out for contestants.

Anyone can apply as long as they are aged 18 or over and are a resident of the UK.

As well as regular quizzers, producers also want to encourage people who might not usually apply for quiz shows to get involved.

After you have submitted your application, one of the casting team may get in touch to organise a Zoom audition with you.

There will be short general knowledge quiz and producers will find out about why you’ve chosen your specialist subjects.

The audition will only take 15-20 minutes and is said to be "very relaxed and fun".

Although applications close at midnight on Friday 10th May 2024, producers are encouraging people to apply as soon as possible as casting is currently underway
