ITV commissions 200% more of The 1% Club

ITV has commissioned two bumper brand new series of the multi-award-winning, hit entertainment quiz show the 1% Club. Produced by Magnum Media for ITV, the show, whose third series is currently on air on Saturday nights on ITV1, will return for a fourth and a fifth run, with each new series also including a Christmas special. Filmed at dock10 studios and presented by BAFTA award winning comedian Lee Mack, The 1% Club won the Quiz Game Show Award at the 2023 National Television Awards and Best entertainment show two years in a row at the Broadcast Awards.

Lee said: "Well let's be honest, the fact that I haven't accidentally given a hundred grand to the wrong person or read out the answer instead of the question is as much a surprise to me as it is to everyone else. So I'm delighted that ITV are risking me steering this ship once again! Can't wait to discover more of the nation's brainboxes."

The show's format sees 100 contestants begin every show - but to make it to the end and win the top prize of up to £100,000, contestants must correctly answer a question only 1% of the country would get right. Contestants of all ages and backgrounds can take part, because, unlike most quizzes, no swotting up on general knowledge is required to do well. Logic and common sense are the key to success.
