UNIVERSITY Challenge viewers couldn't get enough of one particular contestant on the latest episode of the show.

The Jeremy Paxman-hosted TV series – which has run since 1962 – is a quiz series, where various universities go head-to-head against one another.


Monday night's episode on BBC Two saw two new teams in the studio, who were gunning for the win.

Robert Gordon University return to the competition for the first time in 28 years to face the University of Roehampton for a place in the second round.

The contestants' intelligence was certainly impressive, but it was one of the hopefuls' appearance that caught the eye of viewers.

Fay Cooke, from Stockport who is studying for a diploma in professional legal practice, had all the viewers talking because of her notable appearance.
