Images have been released offering a first look at James Graham's Quiz, which receives its world premiere at the Minerva Theatre, Chichester this week.

Gavin Spokes plays Charles Ingram, also known as 'the coughing Major' when he hit headlines for cheating on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?.

He is joined by Stephanie Street as wife Diana Ingram and Keir Charles as host Chris Tarrant.

The company is completed by Nadia Albina, Paul Bazely, Greg Haiste, Mark Meadows, Henry Pettigrew, Jay Villiers, Lizzie Winkler and Sarah Woodward.

The Ingrams were convicted of "procuring the execution of a valuable security by deception" in 2003, two years after Charles won £1,000,000 on the programme.

Directed by CFT's artistic director Daniel Evans, Quiz has design by Robert Jones, with lighting by Tim Lutkin, music and sound by Ben and Max Ringham, video by Tim Reid and movement by Naomi Said.

Quiz runs at the Minerva Theatre until 9 December.
