Nintendo and Five have announced auditions for a television show that will see a nationwide quest to find the "best brains in Britain".

The two companies are putting prospective contestants through a series of challenges in a nationwide road show which will visit major cities across the UK during July and August.

The challenges are from Wii and DS games such as "Dr Kawashima's Brain Training: How Old is your Brain?", "Wii Fit" and "Big Brain Academy".

Nintendo asks: "Are you a whizz at quizzes, nuts about numbers and have a mind boggling memory? Then you could be in with the chance of starring in Five's new prime-time TV show, Britain's Best Brain powered by Nintendo".

Prospective contestants can apply to be part of the show, and find out when and where the roadshows will be, by visiting
