Contestant calls for UK gameshows
Have you considered going on a UK gameshow or quiz show?
It’s a fun way to compete to win a cash prize, and there are always plenty of opportunities to apply. It’s not all about being a general knowledge buff either – there are TV gameshows for sporty types, musical types and family groups too.
This post lists current UK gameshows that are looking for contestants, with details of how to apply. Usually this will be via an online application form, with a number of questions related to your education, career, hobbies, quirky stories and details of any previous appearances.
If you’re a little nervous about applying, please have a read of my popular post Top tips to get on a TV gameshow for lots of advice on your application, audition and filming the show. I’ve appeared on eight TV game shows and it’s such a unique, brilliant experience even if you don’t win. I highly recommend having a go!
Contestants are wanted for these UK gameshows:
Apply for The Tournament
The Tournament is looking for fun, smart, competitive and entertaining personalities to take part in the ultimate challenge. You’ll need strategy, good general knowledge and strong nerve under pressure, as you’ll go head-to-head in the battle to be crowned champion.
