A quiz team from South Holland are to be featured on the BBC’s quiz show Eggheads.

The team consisted of Ben Clarke, Ricki Kendal, Julie Walton, Martin Woods and Valerie Venables, with Jon Tuffs in reserve.

Ben, team captain, said: “Our motivation for applying to go on the show was that we are all big fans of the show and we often team up for local quizzes.

“We wanted to truly test ourselves and win a large cash prize at the same time.”

The team has never lost a quiz under their team name, ‘Battle Squad Awesome’, and has beaten all of the opposition they have come up against in Lincolnshire.

Ben said: “After the audition, the filming at the BBC was a real hoot and we were looked after very well.

“We had a brilliant experience throughout and fantastic banter with all of the people involved in producing the show.

“We want to encourage everyone to watch our episode, as it made for a truly epic episode with many thrilling twists and turns throughout.”

The show airs on BBC2 at 6pm on June 11.
