    The Fred Test

    An 11-year-old boy has made history by recording Junior Mastermind's highest-ever score in his specialist subject - Andrew Flintoff.

    Callum racked up a perfect 19 points in the first round of Monday's final, but was eventually beaten into second place by a point, after finishing on 32.

    The Leicestershire schoolboy won a special trophy for his efforts, but can you do as well as he did? Find out by attempting the 19 questions below, while remembering he did not have any multiple choice answers to help him.

    Very impressive from the young man tho as he didn't have the multiple choice options either.

    13 as well, but without the multiple choice answers to choose from I would've got about 5.
