First And Last: Jason Manford hosts new BBC One game show – apply now!

Jason Manford is hosting new BBC One game show First And Last – here’s how to apply to take part.

The brand-new, primetime comedy gameshow for BBC One has one very simple rule: don’t come first or last.

The six-part series will put contestants through a succession of ingenious rounds, all of which have one golden rule – players mustn’t come first or last in any game. If they do, they will be eliminated.

Eleven players start each show and compete across a range of downright daft, stupidly funny, play-along-at-home games that will see one of them leave with a cash prize of up to £10,000.

To win, they’ll need to judge every round to perfection and hold their nerve in the nail-biting endgame.

Jason Manford said: “I’m so excited to be presenting this brand new show, First And Last, for BBC One. As I get older I try not to be involved in any show that I 100% wouldn’t watch myself, and this to me is classic early Saturday evening telly.

“It’s fun and light-hearted with great characters and silly games. I always think when the world feels a bit hard and tough, you want to be able to flick the telly on and block all of that stuff out by having a good laugh!”

Peter Holmes, Executive Producer at programme makers Zeppotron, added: “First And Last is a beautifully simple premise around which to build all sorts of studio silliness and gameshow tension, and we’re delighted to have Jason at the heart of the show.”

Kate Phillips, Controller of Entertainment Commissioning at the BBC commented: “With one very simple rule at its heart this show is simply great and in Jason we have a great host.”

If you want to be a contestant on the new game show, apply here to appear on First And Last.

An air date for the series will be confirmed in due course.
