ONLY Connect has blown fans' minds with an "impossible" question – if you get it right you're smarter than you think.
The BBC Two quiz show is hosted by Victoria Coren Mitchell.
It sees teams compete in a tournament of finding connections between seemingly unrelated clues.
The show's questions will cover any topic, and many may require knowledge of both arcane subject areas and popular culture.
When presented with the clues, contestants are not told the type of the connection, and as such part of the gameplay involves establishing whether the connection is thematic, linguistic, factual or mathematical.
There are four separate rounds in each episode, with the questions changing in difficulty. They get 40 seconds in the first round to find out the relationship between four words or phrases.
