Ultimate News Quiz 2023

The Ultimate News Quiz has become one of London’s most popular annual charity events, which sees well-known TV and news guests compete alongside other familiar faces in a dastardly difficult current affairs quiz for the coveted Ultimate News Quiz trophy. The Quiz has been generously sponsored by the Premier League since 2014 and has raised over £1.4 million since it began in 2007.

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?
