Radio presenter and writer Dotun Adebayo MBE will appear on the highly respected BBC Two quiz University Challenge.
Dotun and Antiques Road Show expert Rupert Maas, both former University of Essex students, will go up against broadcaster Natalie Haynes and news correspondent James Reynolds, former Christ’s College, Cambridge students.
In a new article the Radio 5 Live presenter writes:
HEY FOLKS, set your alarms for 8pm on Wednesday December 23 because that’s the day when you’ll be able to see how clever I am – or not, as the case may be.
Because on that day you will see me defending my alma mater on the acclaimed quiz show University Challenge.
It’s part of the graduate special that they’ve got for your festive entertainment during the Xmas period. And I must say that Jeremy Paxman seemed particularly delighted that I was rocking a rather colourful African dashiki.
Don’t let the community down Dotun. Good luck!
University Challenge, BBC Two, December 23 – 8pm.
