"Let's Get the Party Started!"

Friday 26th October/... The Christmas party season starts early with the arrival of the ultimate party guest. Keith Chegwin – the legendary TV star and personality better known to millions as‘Cheggers’– lends his cheeky talents as the virtual host of Cheggers Party Quiz on PlayStation®2 and PC– out today (and coming soon on Nintendo WiiTM)

The game features eight exciting competition rounds (Opening Night, Big Break, Picture Show, Star Turn, Prime Time, Typecast, Channel Hopping and Final Cut) that can be played on your own or, even better, with up to seven of your mates, on the PS2. Gather round to discover who is the most clued-up member of your family when it comes to answering thousands of questions that span the entertainment worlds of film, music, TV and much more.

Keith Chegwin, the virtual star of Cheggers Party Quiz, says:

“I’ve been a gamer since the days of the Atari, so being a star in my very own title is fantastic. I had a right laugh being the host in Cheggers Party Quiz and made sure that it’s a fun game for all the family to enjoy.”

Keith Chegwin rose to prominence in the mid-1970s with presenting slots on Multi-Coloured Swap Shop and Saturday Superstore, as well as hosting classic TV game shows like Cheggers Plays Pop. More recently, Cheggers has appeared in Ricky Gervais’ critically-acclaimed Extras comedy show and has a regular outdoor segment on GMTV.

Cheggers Party Quiz is on sale today, 26th October, on PC and PlayStation®2, with the Nintendo WiiTM version due for release on 30th November.
