The Chase star Paul Sinha is set to front his own game show for ITV.

In Paul Sinha’s TV Showdown, Paul will preside over two teams of three celebrities as they're quizzed on their TV knowledge.


ITV explain: "Hilariously witty Chaser, stand-up comedian and TV trivia genius Paul Sinha hosts this raucous, fiercely contested battle in which celebrities’ pride is at stake.

"Each week, two regular team captains will go head to head with their respective teams. Featuring clips from the best-loved shows on TV, Paul tests the teams’ knowledge of everything on the box, from Blind Date to Bake Off and everything in between.

"It’s one thing to be on the telly - but it’s another to know your stuff about it!"

Comedian and quizzer Paul has been one of The Chaser's Chasers since 2011, joining with the nickname 'The Sinnerman'.

As well as The Chase, he appears on its spin-off Beat The Chasers with fellow Chasers Jenny Ryan (The Vixen), Shaun Wallace (The Barrister), Mark Labbett (The Beast) and Anne Hegerty (The Governess).

Paul is the latest of The Chasers to land his own TV show with Anne Hegerty fronting Britain's Brightest Family, also on ITV.

It sees sixteen families battle it out in a knockout tournament with £25,000 up for grabs for the winning family.

Meanwhile Jenny Ryan recently appeared on The Celebrity X Factor while Shaun Wallace is currently taking part in Don't Rock The Boat.
