Speaking about his experience on the show, Philip said: “The whole team had a wonderful time filming with the Eggheads, but I won’t reveal if we beat them.

“People will have to tune in to find out whether we won.”

Mark Hildred, managing partner at Moore Thompson, said: “Everyone in the office is really looking forward to watching the episode to see how the team did on the day.

“As experienced accountants they have expertise in a broad range of subjects, but the Eggheads are tough opponents, so it should be exciting to watch.”
