Stars from The Chase & Pointless go head to head in #saveourvenues fundraising pub quiz


For its eighth episode THE LOCK INN PUB QUIZ welcomes three of the most recognisable faces from our beloved tea-time telly schedule who will be battling it out for pub quiz supremacy. This week regular host Ivo Graham will be joined by Richard Osman, Paul Sinha and Jenny Ryan who will all compete with each other in this part game show / part pub quiz format. If you were asked to name 10 of the top TV quiz shows in the UK it’s more than likely you’d include both Pointless and The Chase.

Normally found sat behind a desk with a fake laptop, Richard Osman is the absolute Godfather of the UK quiz show having not only co-presented and created Pointless but also producing Deal Or No Deal, 8 Out Of 10 Cats & Total Wipeout amongst others, viewers will be treated to seeing him in the hotseat from his home this Monday 22nd June at 8.30pm.

He’ll be up against two formidable opponents from one of the most merciless trivia challenges on TV – The Chase. Paul Sinha provides great value to proceedings with not only an almost frightening level of knowledge, which he’s sure to display in this episode, but also great contributions as one of the world’s finest stand-up comedians.And completing the bread in the Osman sandwich is professional quizzer and Celebrity X-Factor contestant Jenny Ryan. With a TV quiz show CV that can be matched by few others we’re thrilled to be graced with the presence of the former contestant of University Challenge, Mastermind, Eggheads, Only Connect and Fifteen To One.

Previous episodes of The Lock Inn Pub Quiz have welcomed guests such as Phil Wang, Deborah Frances White, Ed Gamble, Tom Rosenthal, Tim Key, Suzi Ruffell and John Robins from the worlds of comedy as well as actors in the shape of Fiona Allen (Smack The Pony) and Craig Parkinson (Four Lions, Line Of Duty).
