#WeLoveTVQuiz - The Answers

To celebrate the announcement of our two wonderful hosts  - Rachel Riley & Mark Watson - for the unmissable 'We Love TV' charity quiz, sponsored by Dave, we ran a mini #WeLoveTVQuiz over on our Twitter account @EdinburghTVFestQuestions and answers are all below. 

And if they've whet your quizzical appetite, why not enter a team for the quiz? A firm favourite in the TV calendar, the event, which takes place on May 13
th in the sumptuous surroundings of Café De Paris, raises money for the Edinburgh TV Festival's new talent schemes – so a chance to show us your support, as well as showing off your TV trivia. 

And alongside your battle with TV rivals, you’ll also get to race against the famous Countdown clock in our letters and numbers rounds. So dust off your times tables and start assembling your A-team. Plus, can anyone knock last year’s winners, the mighty Endemol, off their perch? All the details, including how to book, can be found on our website, and if you enter before April 4th, you'll receive the special Early Bird rate.
