A TOP TV show is calling on Bradfordians to take part in its new series.

Mastermind has been running for more than 50 years and the team behind the classic British quiz show is casting for the 2024/25 series.

The BBC Two programme is currently hosted by journalist, newsreader and presenter Clive Myrie, who took over from John Humphrys after he announced he would be stepping down in April 2021 following 18 years of fronting the show.

Contestants are pitted against each other in two rounds with the winner making it to the semi-finals.

The last full series to air – 2022/23 – had six semi-finals and Stuart Field was eventually crowned champion with 28 points after the final in April 2023.

His specialist subject in the heats was Jonathan Creek – a long-running British mystery crime drama series – followed by The Jason Bourne Films, and then sitcom Extras at the finals.

The overall winner is named “Mastermind” for the year, as well as receiving a cut glass engraved bowl trophy.

The 51st series is currently being aired on TV, with 23 episodes live at the time of writing - the last being shown on February 5.

Do you think you could make it all the way? Is there a subject you’re certain you know better than anyone else? Are you a pub quiz whizz?

Hat Trick/Hindsight Productions are looking for the next contestants to take part in the 52nd series of the hit show.

A spokesperson for the company said: “We are looking to cast a diverse range of people throughout the whole of the UK.”

They added: “As well as regular quizzers, we also want to encourage people who might not usually apply for quiz shows to get involved.”

How do I apply?

To apply, you must be aged 18 or over and be a resident of the UK (including the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man).

You can find out more information and apply at: eu.castitreach.com/ag/hattrick/mastermind22/welcome.html

Or email: mastermind.hth@hattrick.com

Applications close at midnight on Friday, May 10.

But people are encouraged to apply as soon as possible as casting is currently underway.

What happens next?

After you have submitted your application, one of the casting team may get in touch to organise a Zoom audition with you.

There will then be a short general knowledge quiz and the team will learn more about why you have chosen your specialist subjects.

The audition will take 15-20 minutes and is described as being “very relaxed and fun” by the production company.
