Former Lancaster Royal Grammar School pupil Jack Bennett became the youngest ever contestant on University Challenge when his Liverpool University team beat four students from Oxford last week.

Jack, 19, was only 18 when the BBC show was filmed last year.

Jack has just finished his first year studying law at Liverpool University.

He grew up in Lancaster and attended Cathedral Catholic Primary School and then LRGS.

His team won through to the next round, which is due to be shown in November.
