One of the “most difficult” quiz shows on television is looking for contestants – and the producers are really keen to sign up some Mensa brains!

500 Questions is an intense game of strategy and stamina - the aim of the game is to hold your own and bank cash as you go. There is just one rule. Three wrong in a row and you’re out!

With a challenger to take your place and tens of thousands of pounds waiting to be won, can you handle the pressure?

500 Questions is produced by Wall to Wall, the company behind Child Genius, and the programme will be screened on ITV.

Contestants must be aged 18 or over. Applications can be made via and there is more information at

Applications close at midnight on Friday February 12
