Alan Carr to take on some of the nation’s favourite game shows of all time

Alan Carr is coming to ITV on Saturday nights to entertain the masses with a contemporary take on some of the nation's favourite game shows of all time, and he's going to make them Epic!

Filmed at dock10 studios, every week Alan will resurrect one of the biggest game shows ever to be on TV, in a fresh new style. As well as bringing back the classics, the shows will be supersized with new epic twists - new rounds, massive prizes and glamorous celebrity assistants!

The legendary formats getting the big scale treatment are Play Your Cards Right, Take Your Pick, Strike It Lucky, Bullseye, and The Price is Right.

Alan Carr said "It is such a privilege for me to be involved in these truly iconic shows that have brought so much joy to my childhood. A little bit of nostalgia but a whole load of fun. Big shoes to fill I know, but these shows should be back on telly for a whole new generation to sit down and enjoy with their family just like I did all those years ago!"

There will also be a Play Your Cards Right celebrity special with Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford, Chris and Rosie Ramsey, Ore and Portia Oduba, and Martine McCutcheon and Jack McManus. and of course with Alan Carr helming the show there is promise of laughter, excitement and drama coming your way!

Joe Mace, Commissioning Editor for Entertainment, ITV said: "We are really excited to bring these brilliant shows back to prime time with Alan Carr, they are the perfect match and we can't wait for the audiences to fall in love with both."

Jonno Richards, Talkback's Acting Managing Director said: "A fantastic and funny host, five brilliant formats and some truly epic new end rounds. Who could ask for more? Talkback are thrilled to be working with Alan and ITV on this exciting new series."

Alan Carr's Epic Gameshow starts Saturday 30 May at 8.15pm on ITV.
