TV show for brightest star of BBC Olympics

CLARE Balding is to be the host of a new Saturday night BBC1 entertainment show to find the UK's sharpest mind.

The presenter, one of the stars of the BBC's Olympics coverage, will front 'Britain's Brightest' early next year which will put 24 brainboxes to the test to find the ultimate egghead.

Show bosses will test various aspects, including measuring emotional intelligence and processing speed to find the most brilliant brain in the six-part series. Hopefuls will tackle challenges and puzzles in the studio and on location.

"I am fascinated by the brain -- how it works and how it can be improved," said Ms Balding.
