The Christmas University Challenge returns to BBC Two this December
The line-up for the 2016 Christmas University Challenge series has now been confirmed, with over 50 prominent alumni taking part.
Teams from 14 universities and university colleges, including Oxford, Bristol and Sussex, will compete for the Series Champion crown that will end the year's competition.
The series will include a host of famous faces such as Paul Ross, Rachael Stirling, Dom Joly and Dermot Murnaghan.
There will be seven first round matches, after which the four teams with the highest winning scores will battle it out in two semi-finals, with the winners then facing one another in the final for the ultimate title.
Peter Gwyn, executive producer, ITV Studios, said: “Once again, distinguished alumni from a range of different industries and disciplines will be coming together to test their general knowledge this Christmas, as they battle it out to try and lead their alma mater to the title and claim this year’s bragging rights.”
