Anita Rani took a break from Strictly Come Dancing training to lead a ramble for BBC Children in Need.

"That's why I'm asking everyone at home to show their support and put on their own sponsored ramble."

John Craven to host new BBC series Beat the Brain

21 January 2015 9:39 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

John Craven will present the new BBC Two game show Beat the Brain.

Beat the Brain, which will air in the BBC's daytime programming block, tests the way its contestants think by pitting teams of four in challenges that involve different centres of the brain.

Contestants will be given logical problems, visual puzzles and memory challenges, rather than trivia questions.

The series comes from Objective Productions and Over The Top Productions.

Nigel Hall of Over The Top Productions announced the series, saying: "I am really excited to be working with the legend that is John Craven, who has starred in so many landmark TV shows in his career.

"We were absolutely thrilled he chose Beat the Brain to be his next TV project. These brain games are addictive and we are confident that this will be a show that the whole family can enjoy together."

Beat the Brain is scheduled »
