Stephen Mulhern is to present a new ITV gameshow, ‘Rolling In It’, which will see contestants roll coins for big money prizes.
The primetime format involves three players teaming up with some famous faces to compete in a game of chance.
Each civilian-celebrity pair must roll coins down a moving conveyor belt towards slots worth varying sums of money.
If the coins make it in to these slots, they will bank the cash – but there is also a ‘bankrupt’ slot, meaning they could lose everything.
Throughout the game, the money values will increase, as will the penalties.
One final coin determines whether or not the contestant goes home ‘rolling in it’, winning a huge cash prize.
The show started on ITV on Saturday, August 8 at 6:25PM and run on ITV on Saturday nights for five episodes.
You can watch episodes online and catch up via the Rolling In It.
The celebrities appearing on the series include comedian Jimmy Carr, radio and TV presenter Mark Wright, reality TV star favourite Gemma Collins, football pundit Chris Kamara, Coronation Street’s Antony Cotton, Cold Feet star John Thomson, comedian Joel Dommett and singer and radio DJ Fleur East.
ITV’s head of entertainment commissioning Siobhan Greene said: “The combination of Stephen, giant coins being rolled down the conveyor belt by celebrities and contestants hoping to win big, made for a pilot that was packed to the rafters with tension and laughs. The decision to go for a series was easy.”
Executive producer David Hall added: “We’re delighted ITV have commissioned a full series of Rolling In It. It’s a show packed with high drama, lots of laughter and of course the fabulous Stephen Mulhern. We can’t wait to get started.”
Meanwhile applications for a potential second series of Rolling In It are open now.
