Applications are open for the next series of BBC Two's mainstay quiz show, Mastermind.

Those interested in sitting in the famous black chair must be UK residents, including the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man, and aged 18 or over.

The search is not just limited to experienced quizzers, but also people who wouldn't usually apply, and from a diverse range of backgrounds.

Prospective contestants may undertake a brief Zoom audition after submitting their applications.

Applicants are urged to apply before the deadline at midnight on Friday, May 10.
