University Challenge contestant Hannah Woods just became an unexpected style icon


After 2,835 questions, it was finally down to St John's College Oxford and Peterhouse College Cambridge to battle it out with braincells to decide who would be crowned University Challenge champion.

It was Peterhouse who came out victorious - but the Twitter hype surrounding the show wasn't on classical music, German scientists or publications from the 1500s (not so surprising) - it was on the winning team's captain Hannah Woods.

The only woman on the show, her cool n' calm manner as well as her strong look won her a legion of fans.

Viewers were very supportive of her choice of knitwear.

Her winged eyeliner

And, of course, her now infamous arching eyebrow

(Which has been such a talking point all series, it even has its own Twitter accounts)

... a comparison that didn't go unnoticed by the man himself.

On point performance from Hannah all round. Will we ever see her again?
