TV legends Gaby Roslin and Alastair Stewart hosted the first-ever Entertainment Quiz Night last night (22nd September) on behalf of Action for Children.


The event, sponsored by Cinram, was held at The Grand Connaught Rooms, London and welcomed rivals and peers across the biggest companies within the film and entertainment industry, including Paramount Pictures and NBS Universal.  

TV star Anthea Turner was quizmaster for the night, watching 21 teams battle through five gruelling rounds of news and celebrity trivia questions.

The night raised an incredible £100,000 to help support and protect children and young people across the UK.

TV presenter Gaby Roslin, who hosted the event, said: “It was a pleasure to co-host the first Entertainment Quiz Night, in what was a fantastic opportunity to support the incredible work of Action for Children. Tonight we’ve seen people from the world of film and entertainment battle it out to see who really knows their facts from fiction. It was a tough contest but Alastair and I were thrilled to crown Lee & Thompson as the Entertainment Quiz Night Champions."

"It’s been a spectacular evening and thanks to people’s generosity, Action for Children will be able to provide the necessary support to change the lives of vulnerable children and young people across the UK."
