FIVE para-equestrian drivers have taken on the Eggheads in BBC2’s quiz show.

Team captain Terry Kirby enquired about putting a team together after appearing on In It To Win It, a show hosted by Dale Winton.

“I asked one of the production team about it and got all the forms for Eggheads,” said Terry, who drives internationally for Britain.

Terry’s team-mates were James Marshall, Heather Clarke, Margaret Lupton, Lynsey Tyas, and reserve Rowena Coldwell.

“It was great fun and a good way of getting publicity for the sport,” said Terry.

The drivers signed a confidentiality contract before filming, so viewers will have to find out the result in June when the show is aired.
