Whats the highest prize money ever won on eggheads on bbc2

The largest amount of prize money won so far on BBC2's Eggheads was £75,000 by five Oxford Brookes University students known as Beer Today, Gone Tomorrow.

They were all second years at Brookes and only signed up for the show after a comfortable win in a quiz at The Standard pub, in London Road, Headington.

The win took place during series 8, episode 14, which originally aired on 28 September 2007. The team defeated professional quizzers, who included former Mastermind and Brain of Britain winners.

To date, more than £1.5 million in prize money has been paid out to winners. To request an application to appear on Eggheads send an email to eggheads@12yard.com or write to Eggheads Applications, 12 Yard Productions, G7, The Hub, Pacific Quay, Glasgow G51 1EA.
