Do you know a child who is fascinated by fossils, besotted by barometers or curious about calligraphy?

The search is on for remarkable youngsters to take part in the next series of Channel 4's hit series Child Genius. Some of the country's smartest eight to 12-year-olds will battle it out through tough rounds of spelling, mental arithmetic, memory and verbal reasoning in a bid to claim the title.

Child Genius winner Sharon Daniel with her trophy

 Chess champion Sharon Daniel has beaten off some of the cleverest youngsters in Britain to win this year’s Child Genius title.

Sharon, 11, from Bolton, won the trophy at the end of the second series of the Channel Four competition, backed by British Mensa.

The independent learner beat eight year old Tudor Mendel-Idowu in the tense head to head finale of the four part series.

Sharon is the current under-11 UK girl’s chess champion, and she chose the Battle of Stamford Bridge as her specialist subject in the final.
