University Challenge viewers all have the same complaint about contestant on winning team

UNIVERSITY Challenge fans accused one contestant of simply "making up the numbers" as her team soared into the final.

Some harsh fans of the BBC show even insisted Reading University student Bishop, full name Kiera Bishop, should be "replaced" for the next game.

Their comments came as the university battled it out against Edinburgh during the penultimate match in the series.

The Reading team, who had a higher average age than their competitors, comprised of Jesudoss, Ounsley, Hutchinson and Bishop.

Yet it was the latter, a mathematics and psychology student, who got fans talking.

They took to Twitter to suggest the competitor from Slough, who wore a white, red and blue patterned sweatshirt, was not pulling her weight.

One joked: "Bishop should just bring a couple of ice packs for Hutchinson and Ounsley in the final. Those shoulders are going to need it from all that carrying."

Another then quizzed: "Has Ms Bishop answered a single question since she joined?" as a third boldly continued: "University Challenge In the Final Reading need to replace Bishop."

One then quizzed: "Is Bishop just making up the numbers?"

Another mused: "Is Bishop actually contributing anything here?" as a show fan joked: "Can Someone Please Check That Bishops Alive!!!!"
