Trivia

“Tenable” questions, 12 April 2021 [Series 5 Episode 26], repeated on Friday 14 May 2021

A new series of ITV quiz show “Tenable” began on Monday 15 February. Here are the questions and answers for Monday 12 April, Series 5 Episode 26 (S5Ep26). This was the first screening of an episode hosted by Sally Lindsay, standing in for the show’s usual presenter Warwick Davis. According to his Twitter page earlier today: “Sally is stepping into my hosting shoes for a run of shows while I’m in pre-production for another project”.

For previous series I have included at least a week’s worth of questions and answers in each post, as in this piece from last year. For this series I plan to post one piece for each episode containing the following: the questions, how the team fared and the answers.

Here are links to the 25 previous episodes in the current series:
