Watch it now...

University Challenge is developing a habit of dipping into youth culture.

A few months ago grime creeped on to the long-running academic quiz show, with Wolf Alice making an unexpected cameo on last night's - July 21st - episode.

Jeremy Paxman asked an indie lover from Cambridge University’s Corpus Christi College which Mercury prize winners were fronted by Ellie Rowsell...

The answer is, of course, Wolf Alice. The band were naturally pretty pleased, and promised the contestant a spot on the guest list as reward.


First class degree in indie
