They are quiz stars Shaun Wallace and Anne Hegarty, who will be playing the game over the 12 weeks and have already started looking at shares to pick.
Asked about her strategy, Anne said: 'I suppose I am trying to think about what kinds of things will be in demand and then choose companies that offer those products or services.
For example, I've picked a bank, and it's value has stayed up.
'People are working from home more because of the coronavirus, that's one trend. Another might be avoiding investing in oil companies for example, as more people aren't driving to work at the moment and therefore aren't using petrol.

Meanwhile, asked to rate his chances of success in the game out of ten, Shaun replied: 'I'd say six.
I'm cautiously optimistic. I'm a barrister as opposed to an entrepreneur so I'm not going to pretend that I know everything about trading because I don't.'
