The 1% Club

Post by Marc Meakin »

Really enjoyed this.
Lee Mack is very good
The questions inevitably start of very easy.
Some questions toward the end are very Only Connect or MENSA.
I also like the fact contestants can keep the £1000 if they get near to the end

Lee Mack is an absolute natural, compare him to so many other presenters who struggle to read the auto-cue!

Saturday 8:30, ITV.

I did the pilot for this in January 2020. Had so much fun, was also supposed to be on this series, but got COVID the week before recording.

I’ve been told that if it gets a second series, I’ll be on.👍

I did the second pilot/runthrough which was back in June 2021 (think the pilot filmed in the July)- unfortunately the age range for the main show was 18 and I was only a few weeks away from it whereas I believe the age was 16 for the pilot, so hopefully Series 2 for me as well :)

I played along, as it were, in episode 2 and bottled the last question but would have won 10 grand

Graham Nash was on The 1% Club on Saturday 21st May 2022. He made it all the way to the second to last round, but got a relatively easy question wrong and so didn't make it to the final question.

Season 3 has started and there has been a significant shift to logic questions over word related ones (apart from the 1% question ironically)
I find to make the show more enjoyable towards the sharp end I'm freeze framing the questions to give me enough time to get it right.
I usually have to read questions twice for it to sink in sometimes.

I freeze frame conundrums too during CoCs and Countdown series finals.

Still 1% club is by far the best quiz/ light entertainment show on tv
