The new Family Fortunes keeps the classic features of the original we all know and love with the families playing for the chance to win single, double and of course, ‘big money’ through the game play, as well as the added bonus of winning additional prizes along the way.

The series will also see two celebrity specials with some familiar faces and their families hoping to secure big money for their chosen charities.

Gino said: “I am delighted that ITV asked me to be the host that is bringing back Family Fortunes to the British public, following in the footsteps of some legendary presenters.

"It’s a much beloved show in the USA, and around the world, and I cannot wait to get going and add more laughs to this format.”

Amelia Brown, Managing Director of production company Thames added: “Family Fortunes is one of the most iconic and funniest gameshows around, and I’m thrilled we get to bring it back on ITV.

"Gino will be an incredible and brilliantly unpredictable host and we’re delighted he’s taking the reins. What better time is there to bring back this family-based extravaganza!”

Alongside Family Fortunes, ITV is also bringing back The Cube with a new twist.
