The Million Pound Cube coming soon to ITV with new £1 million prize

The upcoming reboot of The Cube will see the prize fund upped to £1 million.

Hosted by Philip Schofield, The Cube ran for nine series between 2009 and 2015.


Contestants played to win up to £250,000 by completing a series of challenges involving both physical and mental skills while confined to a perspex cube.

A reboot is now on the way, launching in autumn 2020 on ITV with a big format change.

Pairs will now be competing with the top prize upped to a whopping £1 million.

Each pair will have nine lives to complete seven games, each worth an increasing amount of money, as they move closer to the huge jackpot. Players will have to overcome extreme nerves and frustration as they take on deceivingly simple tasks such as throwing a ball into a container, balancing on a beam or stopping a clock at precisely 10 seconds.


But will they have what it takes to beat the mighty Cube?

Those over the age of 18 can apply now for the new series online here. The application is inviting pairs to take part which, due to current restrictions, must be a part of the same household or support bubble.

As well as the million-pound special series, there will also be a one-off celebrity special, allowing well-known names and faces to feel the intense pressure as they endeavour to beat The Cube and win £250,000 for their chosen charity.

Phillip Schofield returns to host.

He said: “The Cube is such a cracking format but with the players now in teams and a whopping million-pound prize fund, it now means this high-pressure environment has just got tougher. I can’t wait to be reunited with the legendary Perspex Cube!”


Meanwhile, The Cube isn't the only game show that ITV is set to bring back to screen.

It was confirmed this month that Family Fortunes will return with a new series in primetime hosted by Gino D'Acampo.
