We’ve all been watching Child Genius and rooting for Ben as he pits his wits alongside the cleverest children in the country on the Channel 4 show.

Ben was back in front of the cameras this afternoon after being challenged to some friendly competition by Johnny Rutherford, BBC Spotlight reporter. Johnny visited Ben at the Nexus campus and interviewed him about his experiences during the recording of Child Genius, and asked him for tips to help other able learners.


Johnny then pitted himself against Ben in a series of challenges – but if you want to see the outcome you will need to watch BBC Spotlight at 6pm this evening. Also listen out on BBC radio news for interviews with Ben, and tune in to Channel 4 at 8pm as Ben tackles the science round of the Child Genius competition.
