Yes, it's already time to gather your team, put your very best thinking caps on, and apply for the next series of Only Connect. Rachel from Presentable sent me an email this morning, and here's the text from the flyer which has gone out : -
"Contestant call for BBC Four's quiz Only Connect - the quiz where general knowledge meets lateral thinking enters its sixth series.
Victoria Coren presents the 6th series of the popular BBC Four quiz show ONLY CONNECT where, as in life itself, knowledge will only take you so far: patience and lateral thinking are also vital. It’s all about making connections between things which may appear, at first glance, not to be connected at all.
We’re looking for teams of three players who share a common passion, ability or profession, to pool their combined wits to solve fiendish conundrums and vexing puzzles.
Only Connect is produced for the BBC by Presentable Ltd.
All applicants must be 18 years of age and over.
All applicants must be resident in the UK or Channel Islands.
Employees of Presentable, Zodiak Group of companies, the BBC or close relations are ineligible to apply.
To request an application form please email
including a contact telephone number.
Go on - I dare you !
