Quiz champ Chases 9th telly show

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

PUB quiz cham­pion Brian Ed­wards ( above) is swot­ting up for his lat­est chal­lenge – ap­pear­ing on his NINTH TV quiz show.

Re­tired teacher Brian, 65, has been on Mas­ter­mind, Sale of the Cen­tury, Win­ner Takes All, 15 to 1, Con­nec­tions, Quiz Night, Egg Heads and Per­fec­tion and now he’s get­ting ready for a stint on ITV’S The Chase.

He said: “I did Sale of the Cen­tury 30 years ago and got the bug from there.

“I’ve al­ways been good at gen­eral knowl­edge, so if a show is look­ing for con­tes­tants I bang in an ap­pli­ca­tion.”

Brian, of Wrex­ham, North Wales, prac­tises his trivia skills at his lo­cal boozer The Plough, in Gres­ford, where he is the pub quiz star.

His TV ap­pear­ances have won him a haul of prizes in­clud­ing a two week fam­ily hol­i­day to Is­rael and £4,000 cash.

But he says his big re­gret is never ap­pear­ing on Who Wants To Be A Mil­lion­aire?

He said: “I must have rung 50 times. I think if I’d had a chance I would have won a lot.”
