Do you like to read, love quizzes and want an incredible experience?

Why not apply to be a Mastermind contestant.

With the final on BBC2 this weekend, recruitment for the next series is under way.

'Mastermind' was the brainchild of TV producer Bill Wright, a former RAF gunner, who drew on his wartime experience as a Prisoner of War in Germany of answering three questions – name, rank and number – to create the "Mastermind" ritual of contestants being asked their name, occupation and specialist subject.

The first ever edition of "Mastermind" was recorded at Liverpool University and aired on BBC One in 1972. The show was hosted by former journalist Magnus Magnusson, a formidable Scot of Icelandic parentage who was billed as the show's "Interrogator".

The original run ended in 1997 with the retirement of Magnus Magnusson but returned on The Discovery Channel in 2001 and back to the BBC in 2003.

The original format remained unchanged with four contenders, two rounds of questions and the unrelenting pressure of that spotlight and a new black chair.

Apply today for an unmissable opportunity HERE.
