Impossible (stylised as !mpossible) is a British television quiz show created by Hugh Rycroft and produced by Mighty Productions for BBC One. Hosted by Rick Edwards, the show has a maximum prize of £10,000, and features questions in which some answer choices are 'impossible', or inconsistent with the given information.

Gameplay[edit]

With the exception of Round 2 (see below), all questions used on the show are multiple-choice, with at least one answer each of three different types – correct, wrong, and 'impossible'. The impossible answers are distinguished by being inconsistent with the premises of the question. For example, if the question were 'Seoul is the capital of which Asian country?', the choices could be:

  • North Korea – wrong (its capital is Pyongyang)
  • South Korea – correct
  • West Korea – impossible (this country does not exist)

On each episode, a pool of contestants competes through two rounds until one is left to play for either the £10,000 jackpot or a smaller daily prize pot built up during the course of the game. Contestants leave the show after playing the final once, whether they win or not. With the exception of the last episode of each series, players who fail to reach the final for any reason return on the next episode as long as they have not reached the end of their eligibility.

The size of the pool and the contestants' time on the show have occasionally changed. In the first series, 30 contestants competed across all 15 episodes. The entire pool was replaced after every ten episodes in the second and third series, and after every five from the fourth series onward. The pool was 24 contestants in the second through fourth series, and 21 in the fifth. Also, in the first series contestants left the game after they had reached the final twice, rather than once as in all subsequent series.

During the first three series, contestants who left the show were replaced by new ones to keep the pool at a constant size. Starting with the fourth series, though, the departing contestant is not replaced, leaving their seat empty.

  1. The Impossible Quiz The Impossible Quiz - most simple but at the same time most difficult quiz that you will ever take in your life. The mission of the player is rather simple - find the answers for the tricky questions. Some of the questions my seem very easy but don't rush and give answer - you may be wrong.
  2. At home there was the chatter of his sister and cousin, the card games of his father and brother-in-law, laughter, howls, shouts, the canary's dreadful twitter, noises as though of tree trunks behind the wall; the mechanism of the elevator which thundered through the empty attics, the maids' slippers on the floor above, which tapped against his.

Round 1[edit]

This round is played three times, with each playing split into two halves to choose a contestant for Round 2. The scores are set to zero at the beginning of each first half.

In the first half, the host asks five multiple-choice questions, each with three answer options. Contestants secretly lock in their guesses, and earn one point for each correct answer. Wrong answers leave the score unaffected, but an impossible answer or a failure to lock in a response eliminates the contestant from the game. However, if all remaining contestants are eliminated on a single question, the entire pool is brought back into play. After the fifth question, the high scorer advances to the second half; in the event of a tie, the contestant who locked in their answers in the shortest total time advances.

For the second half, the high scorer chooses one of four categories and is shown nine answers – one correct, three wrong, five impossible. After hearing the first half of a question, they choose five answers they believe to be impossible; each successful choice adds £100 to the daily prize pot and is removed from the board. The host then reads the second half of the question, with all chosen non-impossible answers returned to play, and the contestant must choose the correct answer in order to advance to Round 2. Choosing a wrong answer gives the runner-up/last player who was eliminated from the first half a chance to find the right answer and advance. However, if this contestant chooses a wrong or impossible answer, the high scorer moves ahead. If any impossible answers remain on the board and the high scorer chooses one, they are eliminated and the runner-up gets a turn; if they fail to choose the correct answer, the host begins working down through the next-highest scorers until one of them does so.

Categories are removed from the list of four as they are chosen, leaving three options in the second playing and two in the third. The maximum daily prize pot is £1,500, accumulated by eliminating all five impossible answers in every playing of the second half. Contestants who advance to Round 2 sit out all subsequent playings of Round 1.

If, at the start of a round 1, there is only one player left, they must still get an answer right to advance to round 2.

Round 2[edit]

The three remaining contestants compete directly against one another, answering a series of open-ended questions on the buzzer. Each is given 10 lives to start the round; a correct answer takes one life from both opponents, while a miss takes one from the contestant who buzzed-in. Some of the questions are themselves impossible (e.g. 'In which decade of the 20th century was Pablo Picasso born?' – he was born in 1881, during the 19th century). Correctly identifying an impossible question costs both opponents two lives. However, if a contestant either tries to answer an impossible question or falsely identifies a question as impossible, they lose two lives. Contestants who lose all their lives are eliminated from the game; the last one remaining advances to the final.

The final[edit]

The last remaining contestant is asked one question in a randomly chosen category and shown nine answers, three each of correct, wrong and impossible. The contestant has 10 seconds to choose three answers, and wins the £10,000 jackpot if all three are correct. They win the daily prize pot if any of their choices are wrong but none are impossible, and nothing at all if they choose an impossible answer.

During the first series, contestants who missed the question were asked a second one under the same rules. This format was dropped at the start of the second series, giving only one chance to win any money.

The format was further altered in series 4 in that the departing contestant was no longer replaced, leaving that seat empty for subsequent episodes. The batch of contestants would also stay for a week instead of two, as in previous series.

The jackpot is presented onstage as a giant exclamation mark containing 10,000 £1 coins. When a contestant wins it, a hatch in the bottom opens and the coins drain into a hopper underneath.

Impossible Celebrities[edit]

On 20 February 2018, it was announced that Impossible would be launching a primetime celebrity series, which began to air in August that year. This version follows the same rules as the regular show, with two changes:

  • The pool consists of 18 celebrities, each playing for a charity of their choice.
  • If a celebrity gives an impossible answer during the final, the daily prize pot is cut in half and donated to their charity.[1][2]
