The Ultimate News Quiz is back

The Ultimate News Quiz invites a guestlist of TV and News personalities to battle it out in a current affairs quiz. As one of London’s most popular charity events, it has raised over £1.4 million since it began in 2007.

Previous years have seen famous faces including Grayson Perry, Vanessa Feltz, Dr Ranj Singh, Martin Lewis, Piers Morgan, Susanna Reid and stars of ITV’s the Chase racing to be crowned champions. Alongside teams such as BBC, ITV, This Morning, Good Morning Britain and Channels 4 and 5, we’ve also had renowned corporations with the likes of Netflix, Google, Amazon and Facebook in attendance.

On Thursday 17th March 2022, almost 400 guests came together for the 15th Ultimate News Quiz, raising over £200,000 for Action for Children. This time, Good Morning Britain claimed the victory and were crowned the winners of the 2022 trophy! But who will take home the trophy when we return in March 2023?
