Wise Old Wilson’s Quiz will take place every Sunday from 9pm, starting on Sunday, October 2.

The bar’s website states: “Think you’re as smart as the man himself? Come and prove it and WIN YOUR RENT PAID FOR WHOLE YEAR!

“Here’s the first question to get your brain ticking… Which came first – The Quiz or Mr Wilson?”

It states that bookings are not needed but people should turn up in advance to secure a table.

The undoubtedly generous prize does have echoes of the now infamous This Morning spin the wheel competition, in which one of the prizes was getting your energy bills paid for four months.

That was compared to a scene from the dystopian comedy Black Mirror and criticised as ‘tone deaf’, coming at a time when rising energy bills have left many households seriously struggling to cope.

TV watchdog Ofgem last month confirmed it had received nearly 400 complaints from angry viewers over the choice of prize on the Spin to Win segment, which was quietly dropped by producers following the backlash.
