Rylan Clark-Neal has revealed the very first details about his Supermarket Sweep reboot.
It was confirmed earlier this year that the 90s gameshow would be back, presented by Rylan on ITV2.
Rylan takes over as host from the late Dale Winton, who fronted the show for more than 500 episodes throughout the 90s and 00s.
Rylan explained: “That was one of the big things when I agreed to do the job was that I wanted to have a nod to Dale, somewhere in the supermarket which we’ve managed.
“That’s all I’m going to say about it, but it was the one thing I really wanted.”
Rylan went on to share how the show had been brought up to date for a 2019 audience, teasing that there “may be a self-checkout”.
He added: “There will be old games, new games but ultimately the format will still follow playing the game, building your clock, the sweep and then the super sweep at the end.”
20 episodes will air in primetime week-nights on ITV2 later this year.
Speaking earlier this year when news of the show was confirmed, Rylan said: “It’s a dream come true to step inside this very special supermarket and host one of the most iconic series in television history.
“I am beside myself with excitement and will be going wilder in the aisles than ever before. Fill up your trolley, grab your bag for life and let’s go shopping!”
Paul Mortimer, Head of Digital Channels and Acquisitions for ITV added: “We’re so pleased to be working with Thames on this re-booted version of the ITV classic game show. Funny and camp in equal measure, it’s a great addition to ITV2’s pre-watershed line-up.
“To have Rylan back on the channel as the perfect host is a real bonus too!”
