Netflix is dipping its toes into the world of Great British gameshows with a new high-stakes quiz, Cheat.

Presented by TV stars Danny Dyer and Ellie Taylor, the show airs on Wednesday 1 March and has a potential £50,000 jackpot for the contestants, but there is one catch – unlike most TV quiz shows, there is more to the game than a battle of brains and wit.

The aim of the game is to cheat your way to a fortune, as players have their knowledge put to the test as they bluff and blag through three rounds to avoid elimination.

See how you would fare with these 40 questions from the show’s expert quizmasters – and remember, if you don’t know the answer then blag it! Just don’t get caught or you’ll be eliminated.
