Line of Duty star, Martin Compston, who is a former professional Scottish footballer, will also be asking a question on the night from his home in Las Vegas.

In addition to the quiz, there will also be a raffle and an online auction with prizes to be won including a signed Scotland rugby shirt, a signed Scotland rugby ball, a top signed by both Chris Hoy and Adam Peaty, an Auchentoshan Distillery tour, two premiership hospitality match tickets and a two-night golf trip to Aberdeen plus many more.

Emma Moore, CHAS Community Fundraiser and quiz organiser, said: “We are so grateful to all the amazing stars for giving up their time so generously to support our Big Sporty Quiz especially to our event host, David Tanner, who has over 20 years of experience in broadcasting.
