A TEAM of brainboxes from Burnley will take on quiz experts the Eggheads next week to compete for an £11,000 prize.

The Lancashire Hotpots – Debbie Horsfall, Dan Nuttall and Lesley Burrows – all from Vedas Recruitment, in St James’s Row, along with Anne Fenwick, Val Edson and Matt Jagger, were selected to challenge the Eggheads from more than 60 audition teams.

They will appear on the BBC Two show on Thursday, January 27th, but the result remains under wraps until the programme is aired.

Team captain Debbie said: “The Eggheads are deemed to be the best in the UK, so it was quite daunting – with the added pressure of being on national television.”
