The BBC has been forced to deny claims that an octopus mascot on quiz University Challenge was displayed by contestants as a coded attack on Jewish people.

Screenshots of Monday night’s episode are going viral on X (formerly Twitter), with users claiming that the mascot bears a resemblance to antisemitic Nazi propaganda.

There are also allegations that contestant Melika Gorgianeh was wearing the colors of the Palestinian flag during her appearance on University Challenge, Britain’s longest-running quiz show.

Ben Obese-Jecty, who will stand to be a Conservative Party MP at the next UK election, said the University Challenge episode was “disgraceful.” “Antisemitism is fast becoming normalised,” he added.
