Harry Potter author Jk Rowling has agreed to give a rare interview to the superfan with the most impressive knowledge of the fictional boy wizard.

British television network ITV1 has set up a quiz show competition in honour of Rowling's latest Harry Potter installment, HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF BLOOD PRINCE.

On the show, fans of the magical saga between the ages of eight and 16 will be quizzed on their wizardry facts, which will pre-empt the launch of the book in July (05).

The winning Potter-fanatic will be awarded a whirlwind trip to Rowling's home town of Edinburgh, Scotland, where he or she will be given an exclusive preview of the eagerly-anticipated book.

The day concludes with a special one-to-one interview with the usually elusive author.
