The comic and sitcom writer was seen on the TV quiz show last night when he answered questions about his specialist subject, fellow comedian Billy Connolly.

Jason took on vlogger Louise Pentland, Escape to the Country presenter Alistair Appleton and CBBC presenter Ben Shires on the BBC One show hosted by John Humphrys.

After answering questions about the Scottish comic and taking on a general knowledge round, Jason triumphed with 23 points.

He took on the challenge to raise cash for charity the British Thyroid Foundation.

After the show aired, he took to Twitter to post a picture of himself with his trophy, saying: “Thanks for the lovely Mastermind messages. I am a proper clever lad me like.”
