When is The 1 Percent Club back?

ITV has confirmed the show will return for new episodes on Saturday, 17 February 2024 at 8:50PM.

You’ll also be able to watch online and catch up on ITVX.

The new series follows the show’s one-off Christmas special in December.

Host Lee said: “Once again I am delighted to cause household arguments, as kids mock their parents for being not as bright as them. But us grown-ups can stay out as late as we want, so we get the last laugh!”

How does the 1% Club game work?

In this unique game show, each episode starts with 100 participants, all vying for the chance to win a grand prize of up to £100,000.

The challenge lies in answering a question that only 1% of the population would know, testing not just knowledge, but insight and acumen.

In each round, contestants are eliminated as they face tougher and tougher questions that fewer and fewer people can answer.

The show is open to contestants from various walks of life and age groups, as it doesn’t rely on traditional quiz topics. Instead, it’s the contestants’ logical thinking and practical reasoning that will lead them to victory.

As of the second series, you can play along live with the 1% Club app to download and see if you could have won the £100,000.
