A police officer from Eastbourne has appeared on a popular Channel 4 game show this week.
PC Ed Faulkner, neighbourhood constable for north and west Langney, appeared on the Channel 4 quiz show, Fifteen to One, for a third time and final time on Monday (September 28).
Known as one of television’s toughest quizzes, the show sees contestants face progressively more difficult questions as they are knocked out one by one.
Despite some impressive general knowledge, PC Faulkner was knocked out before the final round after taking on a former Mastermind champion and a Fifteen to One winner from the show’s original series.
PC Faulkner said, “It was fantastic, I really enjoyed myself. I used to watch the original series with my Gran when I was a kid so when they brought it back I thought I would give it a go.
“My family is quite proud of me, a lot of my friends seem to be more interested in my fashion sense than in the quiz and are reminding me of the questions I got wrong every few minutes but they are pretty proud.”
One friend of PC Faulkner made a tribute video to the pink shirt he was wearing on the show.
PC Faulkner said, “Yeah thanks for that John, They made us take six changes of clothes with us to the filming and they pick out the three they want. I think they picked the three worst ones on purpose.”
He returned to the show after two unsuccessful attempts on Wednesday and Thursday last week.
Ed came 11th on Monday, 13th on Thursday and 7th on Wednesday.
The shows are available on the Channel 4 website.
