Hello everyone,

Here are the results after three weeks of play.



Sam Postlethwaite has written to us:-



We are looking for teams to take on the Eggheads in our new series of the show and it would be great if you could pass this info onto anyone who you think might be interested.

I’ve attached a flyer and an application form that people can return to myself should they wish to put forward a team. If anyone has any queries my telephone number is 0141 427 2725.

Eggheads is a game in which 5 members of the public face general knowledge goliaths and try to beat them for a cash prize. When the Eggheads win, the money rolls over to the next show. Often a huge amount of money can be at stake.

Each team will consist of 5 team members and 1 standby, so we need teams of at least 6 people. We are holding nationwide auditions over the coming weeks and months. We are keen to find teams from all over the UK.

All the best,

Good luck, everyone. Several DPQL members, I believe, have been in the running to be an Egghead, so there is no reason why you shouldn’t beat them [says the Webmaster].
