Frank Turner has won Celebrity Mastermind.

Turner's specialist subject was Iron Maiden and the singer-songwriter guested on the show alongside punk poet John Cooper Clarke, actor Ben Faulks and comedian Roy Hudd. The show was broadcast earlier this evening (January 3) on BBC One.

When asked by host John Humphrys how winning Celebrity Mastermind compared to playing the Opening Ceremony at the Olympics in 2012, Turner commented: "I think this is way better, its been on my bucketlist to be on Mastermind since I was a kid." Earlier in the show, Cooper Clarke performed his poem 'Home Honey I'm High' - Cooper Clarke's specialist subject was the Films of Elvis Presley. Turner was playing to raise money for homelessness charity Shelter.

Frank Turner and Billy Bragg went busking together in London at the end of last month in order to fundraise for Shelter. The singer-songwriters teamed up at Granary Square in Kings Cross and raised over £1,200 in donations taken in collection buckets, playing Simon and Garfunkel's 'The Sound of Silence', country standard 'Long Black Veil' and The Kinks' 'Waterloo Sunset'.

Meanwhile, Turner will perform seven huge gigs in February, starting in Cardiff on February 6 and ending in Portsmouth on February 13. Gigs in Nottingham, Edinburgh, Manchester, Plymouth and London will also take place.

Frank Turner will play:

Cardiff Motorpoint Arena (February 6, 2014)
Nottingham Capital FM Arena (7)
Edinburgh Corn Exchange (8)
Manchester Phones 4u Arena (9)
Plymouth Pavilions (11)
London The O2 (12)
Portsmouth Guildhall (13)
