University Challenge: Eric Monkman and Bobby Seagull land radio show
If watching University Challenge makes your head hurt, you might want to take an aspirin before listening to a new show Radio 4 are planning.
Eric Monkman and Bobby Seagull – the breakout stars of the last series of the BBC Two quiz show – are getting behind the microphone.
The pair will present Monkman and Seagull’s Polymathic Adventure on BBC Radio 4 on 21 August.
The duo became friends during filming, despite being captains of rival teams.
Monkman and Seagull each went viral in their own right, with the former proving so popular he sparked what was termed “Monkmania” among viewers.
The Cambridge economics student attracted a loyal following for his animated – and very meme-able – facial expressions.
