Tenable quiz team made up of ‘coppers’ ‘should be arrested’ for ’embarrassing’ performance

Even Warwick appeared to get a cheeky dig in!

Today’s Tenable quiz team were branded the “worst ever” by viewers of the show.

The group of five police officers called themselves Plod on the Tyne, a nod to their occupation and the fact that they hailed from Newcastle.

Introducing them, Tenable host Warwick Davis quipped: “Let’s hope you coppers don’t come a cropper.”

However, it wasn’t long before they most certainly did.

Plod on the Tyne were universally slated on the social networking site as a result of a number of errors that saw them take just £1,000 through to the final round.

Right, I’m applying for the police – obviously you only need an IQ of about one and get paid pretty well for it.

That’s £1,000 split between five, so £200 each – something viewers joked would just about cover their train fares to the Tenable studio!

The fact that the group of contestants were police officers led to no end of jokes online.

“They need arresting for that performance,” stated one viewer.

“Christ, this lot are police officers? God help us!” declared another.

“Right, I’m applying for the police – obviously you only need an IQ of about one and get paid pretty well for it,” said another viewer.

Another commented: “Is this guy real? I don’t want to call the police ever again!”

“Not doing much for the representation of our boys in blue,” another agreed.

Tenable quiz show host Warwick’s cheeky quip

As the headed into the final round, he said: “Playing for the lovely sum of £1,000, well played team.”
