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!
Current UK contestant calls
Catchpoint, hosted by Paddy McGuinness, is an exciting new physical game show where two teams of two compete in the ultimate battle of brains and balls. Fast thinking and quick reflexes will lead to the cash prize so long as you don’t drop the ball!
Apply online at www.bbc.co.uk/showsandtours before 7th September 2018.
Impossible returns for a 5th series – the 24 contestants competing across the series must avoid giving impossible answers to give themselves a chance of winning £10,000.
You will also see regular contestant calls for these established quiz shows:

And the Star Now site is a good resource for game show pilots, which are often filmed in London (you will usually be reimbursed for travel and your time)
