Original 106 FM Quiz

On Friday 20th May 2016 we welcomed all the winners of the competition, along with Original 106 fm presenters, onto the NorthLink Ferry MV Hrossey. However, only one pair of contestants were to sail that evening. The rest were off to walk the plank!Original 106 FM Presenter

As each couple answered NorthLink’s carefully selected questions live on air with Original 106 fm it was only a matter of time before we said goodbye to our first set of contestants. These two were pushed off by our hotel director Mike Carter.

Finally we were down to 2 couples and one final question. Tension built as the question was asked and answered by our winners. We said goodbye to these two final contestants.
