Jo Brand to host medical quiz show on BBC

Share article:

Jo Brand is set to host Britain's first medical-themed quiz show.

The 60-year-old comedian can't wait to start testing the knowledge of the medical professionals and has said it will be much like "University Challenge".

She said: "Hooray! Another chance to berate junior doctors for their lack of knowledge. Haven't done that since 1988.

"Seriously though, I'm really looking forward to bringing a sumptuous array of junior doctors and their encyclopaedic knowledge into your homes. It's like University Challenge but it's medical... fingers on organs teams!"

Health expert Dr Helen Lawal will be joining Brand to off her expert knowledge.

The five-part series titled "Britain's Best Junior Doctor" will see the young doctors battle it out with five rounds of questions on their specialist subjects and carry out tasks including diagnosing and dealing with A+E situations.

Commissioning editor Kalpna Patel-Knight has promised the BBC Two show will bring "a lot of fun" to the channel in the BBC's celebrations of the 70th anniversary of the NHS.
