Singer/songwriter Frank Turner wins Britain’s Mastermind

British singer/songwriter Frank Turner can add Iron Maiden superfan to his resume after winning TV show Mastermind by answering questions about the heavy rock group. Turner picked Iron Maiden as his specialist subject as he took on poet John Cooper Clarke, actor Ben Faulks and comedian Roy Hudd on a celebrity edition of the quiz show, which aired in the U.K. on Friday (03Jan14).
Turner, who performed at the Opening Ceremony of the London Olympics in 2012, was thrilled to win the TV contest, telling host John Humphreys, “It’s been on my bucket list to be on Mastermind since I was a kid.”
Turner was playing to raise money and awareness for homelessness charity Shelter.
He joined Billy Bragg for a series of busking gigs in London at the end of last month (Dec13) to raise funds for Shelter.
