There are a lot of things we have come to expect from University Challenge over the years.
Ridiculously brainy students, questionable outfit choices and Paxman’s snarky remarks - all standard fare.
So viewers were understandably left agog last night when Jeremy Paxman appeared to ask a question about “Bellend Tower”.
Never fear though fans - University Challenge has not taken a raunchy turn in an attempt to improve ratings.
Paxman was obviously talking about Belem Tower in Lisbon, a UNESCO World Heritage Site built in the 16th century.
Get your minds out of the gutter, people.
