Series overview
 
Britain’s Brightest Family, the fast-paced, hit quiz show is back for a brand new series on ITV and this time it’s bigger and better than before.
 
Anne Hegerty, The Governess from ITV’s The Chase, returns to host the show where sixteen families will battle it out in a knockout tournament with £25,000 up for grabs for the winning family.
 
Packed full of the show’s signature play-along questions for all the family, it kicks off with a quick-fire round, before heading into an intense head-to-head specialist round, where the families will have to choose which of them will face-off, answering questions on a randomly chosen subject. 
 
Then it’s on to a multiple choice round where they’ll all be playing at the same time. The more of them that get it right, the more points their family wins. Up next it’s a brand new memory round where one member of each family will have just 10 seconds to remember a sequence of shapes before having to frantically recreate what they’ve just seen. 
 
This all culminates in the final round, where the families will have 90 seconds to win through to the next heat, but with double points up for grabs, it’s anyone’s game.
