About this deal

Covering each of the show’s four rounds – Connections, Sequences, the Connecting Wall and Missing Vowels – and with introductions from presenter Victoria Coren Mitchell, here is your chance to put your own sleuthing and quizzical knowledge to the Only Connect test. This year, we’re very nervously and proudly watching Robert Webb in it, but he’s a fantastic dancer. Only Connect beat EastEnders in last week’s ratings and regularly pulls in close to 3 million viewers.

Only Connect: The Difficult Second Quiz Book (Quiz Books)

It has been going for 12 years and while the ratings have grown steadily they jumped during the first lockdown when we all had a lot more time to scroll through the TV channels. If you enjoy the show, you'll enjoy the book but a few reasons why I couldn't give it any more than 3 stars: most of the content is lifted directly from the shows or slightly adapted with few new questions, so if you have seen most shows, unlikely to be new to you. By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions.As with the first book, there is even a special Connecting Wall on the back cover so you don’t even have to open the book (though the answers to that one are inside the book). With their first bestselling quiz book, the Only Connect team tested your lateral thinking with killer connections, challenging sequences and byzantine walls.

I want the teams to get the questions right, but I want them to get it right with a struggle,” admits Waley-Cohen. As you may know, Jack and David from QuizQuizQuiz are the Question Editors for Only Connect, and have put together the book, complete with a brilliant (of course) introduction from Victoria Coren Mitchell. It was on Challenge TV, which I didn’t have at the time, so I’ll never know whether I was any good at it,” he says, adding his only real regret is never making it to the hot seat of Who Wants to be a Millionaire? I have been on some great quiz shows which never made it beyond two or three series and whatever anyone tells you it’s impossible to tell which are going to be hits and which will flop.Of the people I’ve played who are famous for other things, Zac Goldsmith was probably the best at poker. I love the concept and it's captivating to watch, but I guess running on quite random bits of (often British) culture and drawing those connections is simply out of my league.
