The new season of the ITV programme – which features the reboot of some of Britain’s best-loved gameshows – will launch with Harry and Sandra Redknapp, Nicola Adams and Ella Baig, Martin and Shirlie Kemp, and Catherine Tyldesley and Tom Pitfield taking part in a celebrity special of ‘Play Your Cards Right’.
Alan, 44, said: “I am so super-excited to be back with my ‘Epic Gameshow’, frankly it’s nice to be just out the house, but to start the run with ‘Celebrity Play Your Cards Right’ is just what we need right now.
“A perfect storm of nostalgia, family fun and with the chance to win 30,000 pounds for charity – I dare you not to be on the end of your sofas shouting Higher and Lower.”
Harry was delighted he and Sandra were asked to be part of the “absolute TV classic”.
He said: “‘Play Your Cards Right’ is an absolute TV classic.
“We are so looking forward to appearing on the show, I don’t think it’s any secret that I can be a little competitive so Sandra and I are definitely going to be trying our best to win something for my charity, that’s for sure.”
As well as ‘Play Your Cards Right’, the new series will feature ‘The Price is Right’, ‘Take Your Pick’, ‘Strike It Lucky’, and ‘Bullseye’.
What’s more, the show will include a new addition of classic gameshow ‘Name That Tune’, which will see contestants put their musical knowledge to the test.
The series will feature a run of eight episodes, concluding with another celebrity special, and will then be followed by three more specials later in the year.
Katie Rawcliffe, Head of Entertainment Commissioning at ITV, said: “‘Epic Gameshow’ is the only series that puts all of the nation’s best loved game shows on one studio floor, and with an exciting mix of nostalgia, big money prizes, and of course Alan Carr at the helm, it’s Saturday night TV at its best.”
‘Alan Carr’s Epic Gameshow’ will return to ITV and ITV Hub on Saturday 3 April at 8:35pm.
