Ore Oduba hosts a new quiz

Ore Oduba hosts a new quiz that feels like a friendlier Weakest Link.

Six contestants take turns to answer general knowledge questions, with each correct answer earning cash and moving them along a row of squares on a grid.

When they reach the sixth square, a ball is released and starts to roll along a track.

Wrong answers and hesitation cost time, and if the ball catches up with them on the grid it’s game over.

All the cash goes into a jackpot, and one lucky winner takes it all!
