Do you think you're smart enough to win Mastermind? Well now could be your chance, with BBC 2 looking for contestants for the show.

TV production company Hat Trick Productions is looking to cast a diverse range of people from across the UK, with anyone over the age of 18 able to apply.

If you reckon you could sit in the famous black chair and challenge Mastermind record holders, including Egghead Kevin Ashman and the highest ever overall score, then you can apply by visiting, or by emailing

After you have submitted your application, one of the casting team may get in touch to organise a Zoom audition with you. You will have to do a short general knowledge quiz and learn more about why you’ve chosen your Specialist Subjects. 

Although applications close at midnight on Friday, May 10, 2024, casting is currently underway so you should apply as soon as possible.
