Contestant calls for UK gameshows

Have you considered going on a TV 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 gameshows for sporty types, musical types and family groups too. 

This post lists current UK contestant calls, with details of how to apply – check out my popular post Top tips to get on a TV gameshow for more advice on your application, audition and filming the show itself!

    If you been a bad boy or girl, am I right in saying its impossible to take part due to a chance of bad publicity?

      Usually at an audition they will ask you if you’ve appeared in the press on camera – and you’ll usually have to sign contracts that ask you about criminal records, etc. And if you get as far as the shortlist they might Google your name too – I’ve lost out on a few shows because they’ve googled me and realised I’ve given out game show tips on my blog!
