A team of Mensa members will take on the "best quiz team in Britain" this evening when they appear on the BBC show Eggheads.

The Ludophiles - Paul Carr, Una Adams, David Percik, David Hudson, Ian Brown and Andy Hall - recorded the episode in snowy Glasgow back in January, but have remained tight-lipped about how they did.

The team are all fans of games and puzzles and met while competing in the annual Mensa games tournaments over several years.

They took on a formidable team of Eggheads in the quiz, which is hosted by Jeremy Vine. Each episode features five of the Eggheads "squad", which includes Brain of Britain winner Kevin Ashman, the first Who Wants to be a Millionaire winner Judith Keppel, and four-time world quiz champion Pat Gibson.

To find out how the team got on, tune in to BBC2 at 6pm this evening.
