Konnie Huq will soon take on the ultimate TV challenge in crowning the UK's King of the Nerds.

Adapted from the Us series on TBS, the Sky1 show sees 11 contestants live together in a house called 'Nerdvana' as they participate in challenges and fight to be named "the greatest nerd of them all".

Speaking to Digital Spy and others about the series, Huq said: "It was really fun, but things that are nerdy are fun.

Dermot O'Leary: How will X Factor cope without his dances and his bulge?

27 March 2015 11:31 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

"Your Saturday night starts right here!"

Eight years ago, BBC iPlayer didn't exist, the iPhone hadn't been released and the first series of Mad Men was just hitting our screens.

Basically, it was a bloody long time ago.

And it was in 2007 that Dermot O'Leary began hosting The X Factor.

After proving himself to be the best thing (well, the only thing) about Big Brother's Little Brother, we were thrilled that he had signed up to the ITV behemoth.

Almost instantly, Dermot brought so many facets to the X Factor stage that we fell in love with. Some serious, some… not so much.

From the get go, Dermot delivered a tone and charisma to the job that is inimitable. His slight irreverence and anarchy was a welcome antidote to the often po-faced seriousness of the judges. Yes, Kelly Rowland, that means you.

What Dermot did so well was give the show a pinch of knowingness. »
