Channel 4’s game show The Question Jury is back for a second series – and we’re expecting it to be a nail-biter.

If you’re not familiar with it the show features contestants working together as a ‘jury’ to answer a string of general knowledge questions – but only once they’ve all reached a unanimous verdict on the answer.

And with a £10,000 prize available only to the contestant who happens to be the jury ‘foreman’ at the time it’s no wonder things get a bit intense – as I discovered when I had the chance to play a ‘test’ version of the show.

Yup, just your intrepid reporter, a bunch of like-minded reporters and a whole load of tough questions. Not to mention Made In Chelsea’s Georgia Toffolo and Sam Thompson to help things along.

The Question Jury (featuring your Metro.co.uk reporter on the top right corner of the table) is harder than it looks. Especially when it comes to questions about Diet Coke (Picture: Channel 4)

Granted, it all got a little bit fraught when the team disagreed over the decade that Diet Coke first appeared in the USA (memo to rest of team: I told you it was the 1980s all along).

But there were also the triumphant moments of getting questions right thanks to some sterling teamwork.

Not to mention my nice, understated reaction to guessing one particular correct answer – which led my 11-year-old to give me the biggest eyeroll ever before she declared: ‘You are SUCH an embarrassment.’

She may have a point, actually.

But given the overall tension of the situation and the fact that we’d already got the first question wrong (and in our case, champagne – rather than cash) – was at stake, there really was everything to play for in this instance.

Ultimately things didn’t go quite as to plan as they should have done, while an assessment from psychologist and relationship coach Jo Hemmings afterwards declared I had been ‘initially self-assured and determined but a little quieter as the game progressed’.

I blame the Diet Coke for that. Still, we were all still speaking to one another after it was all over, and the whole experience offered a great insight into just how challenging it can be being put under that sort of pressure in a TV environment.

Not to mention the fact that these shows might look easy enough when you’re sat at home yelling out the answers from your sofa, but when you’re actually playing one yourself it’s a whole different ball game.

The Question Jury airs weekdays on Channel 4 at 3pm from Monday July 17.
