A Felixstowe man who appeared on the BBC quiz show Mastermind says he will try again after failing to make the final.

Tim Kenny, 44, took on the topic of venomous snakes in the most recent episode which aired on Friday night.

Mr Kenny who helps to move goods through Felixstowe Port in his day job as a freight forwarder, had to resort to his third choice option for his specialist subject to avoid repetition.

Mastermind rules state that there must be a two year gap between entrants picking the same category.

“I have been interested in the natural world all my life,” said Mr Kenny, who is also a volunteer at RSPB Minsmere.

In the end it wasn’t to be as Mr Kenny scored 13 points in specialist round with no passes and a further 10 points in his general knowledge round.

Despite the pressure of the legendary black chair Mr Kenny said we wasn’t phased by appearing on the show: “You are just concentrating so hard on what John Humphries is saying.”
