WE are a nation of quiz fanatics, whether joining in with favourite TV shows like The Chase, Pointless or Tipping Point, or going down the local for a pint and a pub quiz.

Right now we can't pop to the boozer for a fun evening of answering questions on '80s pop music or capitals of the world, but you can still get your quiz fix with me every Friday night.

I would love you to join me for this FREE quiz, live on The Sun's YouTube channel, tonight and every Friday for the next four weeks at 6.30pm for half an hour.

I will be entertaining and testing you with questions on general knowledge and current affairs, as well as how much you know about TV, sport, showbiz and music — and there's also an added bonus picture round.

I will be throwing in some quirky questions, too.

You can join in with me and get your pals to play along too from wherever they happen to be in lockdown.

Shows are sheer jolly entertainment

You can compete against members of your family, your workmates or your pals, or can even play all by yourself.

Just because we are all in lockdown doesn't mean we can't enjoy ourselves.

We Brits love a good quiz – here's Ted Rogers with the rest of the crew on 3-2-1

A quiz is a perfect way to have a bit of light relief, and we all really need that right now.

I grew up watching TV quizzes like Ask The Family and Top Of The Form, and have always loved trying to pit my wits against the contestants.

From highbrow shows like University Challenge and Mastermind, where contestants are basically interrogated and even the most confident smarty-pants can be reduced to a gibbering wreck, to wonderfully daft shows like The Price Is Right and Supermarket Sweep that are sheer jolly entertainment, we all love to take part and enjoy that wonderful warm feeling when we get the answer right.

Other shows that have made a big impact include Wheel Of Fortune, Celebrity Squares and the absolutely baffling 3-2-1, with Ted Rogers and Dusty Bin, that made absolutely no sense whatsoever but you could not take your eyes off the screen for an instant.

It's not just the actual general knowledge shows we enjoy watching.

So many of us loved the recent ITV drama Quiz, which has been one of the most successful and talked-about shows of the year.

It was based on the infamous case of ex-Major Charles Ingram, who won the £1million jackpot on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? in 2001 then found himself up in court and given a suspended sentence for cheating.

A drama about coughing and cheating could have backfired in these Covid-19 times, but Quiz was an enormous hit, showing our deep love affair with all kinds of quizzes.

So I really hope you can join me tonight for a bit of light-hearted free fun.

See you in our online pub for a bit of escapism and your chance to prove how clever you are.
