Anne admitted on This Morning that doing the ITV series was a bit of a “stretch” for her because she’s previously spoken about not feeling the need to be massively sociable.

She said: “It’s not really the sort of thing that I would have expected to do.”

Meanwhile, Shaun spoke about the challenges he loved facing in the series.

He said: “One of the challenges, you won’t see it tonight, but taking on a young prodigy who knew everything there was about the brain.

“I had about 10 minutes preparation and I got one question right. I was so happy that I got one question right, I celebrated and punched the air.”
