Rob DJ's Monday Night Pub Quiz is a feature of The Chris Moyles Show on both BBC Radio 1 and Radio X, which is played on a Tuesday morning.


The quiz is compiled by a friend of Chris' from Leeds, Rob DJ, who sends in some questions from a real quiz that he hosts in a pub every Monday night, hence the name.

BBC Radio 1

Rob's questions were given to the producer, Rachel (later Aled), who would then ask five questions to the other members of the team. For a brief period, a member of the audience was given the chance to ring in and play along, and there was also a way for listeners to play by mobile phone.

Radio X

In 2015, the feature was brought back for The Chris Moyles Show on Radio X. Rob DJ appeared live at the Radio X studios in the inaugural broadcast of the feature and following that streamed live into the studio. The feature is no longer called "Monday Night Pub Quiz", and has also featured a listener playing along with the team every week. During the Covid-19 pandemic, Rob presents the quiz live every Tuesday morning from his home in Leeds.


The questions often feature a mathematical problem and an anagram of a television show or celebrity. Many arguments are usually had over the answers, but the answer given by Rob DJ is final.

Rob DJ published a quiz book on the back of the success of this feature.
