In Make Me an Egghead, each contestant is asked up to three multiple-choice questions on subjects such as sport, film and TV, music, food and drink, arts and books, politics, history, geography or science.
The winner of each round gets to choose an Egghead to assist them in the final general knowledge round. The more rounds a player wins, the more Eggheads they have to call upon for assistance in the final round.
