A GROUP of friends from Worthing will appear on a BBC2 quiz show today (Tuesday, June 5).
The aptly-named quiz team, made up of members from the Worthing-based Phoenix club for the over-50s, will appear on the BBC2 quiz show Eggheads tonight.
Led by captain Peter Skidmore, the other four team members and one reserve all got to know each other at the group’s weekly meeting at Worthing Leisure Centre.
Peter, 72, of Arlington Close, Goring, said: “It was really good fun.
“It was a long day because we flew up to Glasgow and back in a day, but everybody was very pleasant, from make-up to the production team, and the Eggheads themselves came over and were friendly as well.”
Peter said the result of the show is a closely-guarded secret, but said the team was happy with their performance.
The other members of the group are Paul Trott, Eddie Walker, Colin Mitchell, Kirk Dickenson and reserve John Marsh, all of whom live in Worthing.
To see how the Phoenix Knights get on, tune into BBC2 at 6pm.
