Quiz show pair place IoM in Pacific Ocean

Manchester family branded 'thick'

A family has been branded the 'thickest in Britain' over a series of quiz show blunders - including believing the Isle of Man was in the Pacific Ocean.

The Davenport family, who hail from Manchester, appeared on BBC1's National Lottery 5 Star Family Reunion last Saturday night (15th).

As well as placing the Island closer to Tokyo than Heysham, the family also guessed Jeremy Corbyn was the Tory leader, and that a rectangle has six sides.

Despite their repeated gaffes, the family still managed to scoop a £7,000 cash prize - but narrowly missed out on a holiday to Thailand.
