The Chase’s Anne Hegerty lands her own show – EVERYTHING you need to know!

The Chase’s Governess, aka Anne Hegerty, has been given her own family quiz show by ITV, which puts families to the test.

The brand new quiz show will see a range of families from across the country battle it out in a bid to be named Britain’s Brightest Family.

It’s not only about answering questions, though, as the families will have to know each other pretty well if they’re to correctly guess what their nominated family member answered.

Anne explains what the show is all about: “It’s a knockout competition to find Britain’s brightest family. Sixteen families going up against each other to face challenges including word and number puzzles, problem-solving and general knowledge skills.

“Each team has been selected by its teenage captain, so it’s a chance for the whole family to show what they know, and how well they know each other.”

On making the move to ITV prime time, she says: “It’s a bit of a responsibility being the filling in a Coronation Street sandwich [in the ITV evening schedule].  But it’s lovely to be trusted with such an amazing opportunity.”

The new series begins on Wednesday January 10 from 8pm on ITV.
