"We plan to do an online quiz every evening for the foreseeable future!"
Goose's Quizzes will run the online pub quiz every night at 7pm. It's free to join and viewers are encouraged to submit their answers - live on the night or by the next day - using Google Forms, with answers revealed at the next quiz.
And the online pub quizzes have already proven popular with viewers, who have been posting photos of their attempts at joining in.
Andrew, founder of Goose's Quizzes, told LadBible that the response has been overwhelming.
"We've asked people to send in photos of themselves at home playing along and we're getting photos of people in their jammies, we had a couple of guys who were stood in a queue at Morrisons, just having a great time playing along."
"I think that's what we need - that community. We've had people tune in from all over the world.
"We're just trying to make the best of the bad situation."
The quizzes will be run throughout isolation and will be available through live-streaming platform, Twitch.
