The Family Brain Games winner confirmed: Meet the Smiths!

The Family Brain Games introduces us to some of the most brainy families in Britain.

Since it kicked off on Monday, June 17th, it has been hard to predict who would take home the win as most families were neck and neck throughout the competition.

But there was one family, in particular, who stood out with their insane knowledge and skill.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Smith family, who took home the win in last night’s final (Thursday, June 27th)!

And the winner of The Family Brain Games is…

The Smiths!

The maths-obsessed family took home the crown after a tense final round against their opponents, the Riley family, where they were tied 4 to 4.

After Lizzy Riley chose the wrong answer, the Smiths got all the time they need to figure out the right one. Which was figured out by the youngest of the family, Heidi.

Get to know the Smith family

The Smiths are from Ayrshire in Scotland.

37-year-old dad Chris is a maths teacher and he loves the subject so much, he even writes his own maths newsletter that has over 3,000 subscribers – including Rachel Riley from Pointless!

And it’s clear that his love for the subject has rubbed off on his two daughters Daisy (12) and Heidi (10), who are gold medallists at the Scottish Maths Challenge awards.

No wonder they managed to crack The Family Brain Games!

What did the Smiths have to say about winning?

Chris was pleased that it had brought the family together and Daisy and Heidi were happy that the competition had played to their strengths.

But mum Elaine – who teaches deaf children – was most enthusiastic about what it did for her two daughters.

She said:

I think this experience has given them a bit of confidence and showing them that they can work together well.
