Anne Hegerty hosting celebrity version of Britain’s Brightest Family

Anne Hegerty will front a celebrity version of ‘Britain’s Brightest Family’.
The general knowledge expert’s ITV show proved to be a huge hit with viewers, and channel bosses commissioned a series of all-star special episodes, which were filmed earlier this year.
An insider told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre TV column: "The celeb version of the show is set to air around the same time as ‘I’m A Celebrity’ is back, with Anne – who was a favourite in the jungle camp last year – in the seat as host."
The programme – set for a prime time slot – will let the viewers see a different side to their favourite stars, with interior designer Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen amongst those to sign up to face the quizzer.
The source added: "Celebrities up for the challenge will be out to prove they and their family have the brains to take the crown.
"It will also offer them a chance to show a different side to their public persona. It is a feel-good family show which will be broadcast prime-time."
Last month, it was revealed Anne, 61, and her ‘The Chase’ co-stars – Mark Labett, Jenny Ryan and Shaun Wallace – will be taking on international geniuses in new show ‘Are You Smarter Than A Chaser?’ and they will also test their brains against intelligent robots.
An insider recently said: "Anne and The Chasers will be travelling across the world to prove that they can outsmart every living being – and robots.
"It’s also a lighthearted look at how we measure and judge intelligence and how ­children, for example, can be far cleverer than adults due to their developing brains figuring things out such as technology in ways grown-ups can’t."
