University Challenge viewers seriously distracted as 'legendary comedy star' makes game show debut | The Sun

UNIVERSITY Challenge viewers were left seriously distracted as they claimed a 'legendary comedy star' appeared on the show.

Students from across the UK take on the challenge in TV's toughest quiz team tournament.

The programme, which airs on BBC Two, is presented by Jeremy Paxman.

During the latest episode viewers watched as Paxman introduced two more teams.

Queen's Belfast took on Bristol as they competed for a place in the quarter-finals.

Opening the show, Jeremy said: "The safety net of the losers' play-offs has been removed, so they must win if they're to remain in the competition."

However, it seems viewers were more interested in one player's appearance rather than the competition.

Taking to social media, they compared Michael Sharry from Queen's Belfast with comedy legend Denzil Dexter.

One wrote: "Denzel Dexter reincarnated on University Challenge tonight!"

Another said: "Dentil Dexter from The Fast Show on University Challenge this evening."
