Jason Manford will host a new game show called Unbeatable.

Jason is set to present the new game show format in daytime on BBC One later this year.


The BBC say of the show: "In this quiz, the four contestants can always give an answer - but can they give the ‘Unbeatable’ answer and streak ahead of the competition to win a cash prize?

"This knockout competition is full of fun knowledge and easy to play along for viewers at home. Contestants and viewers will soon see just how ‘unbeatable’ they are…"

“I know how important daytime quizzes are for a lot of people," Jason said. “I used to sit with my Nana Manford and mum watching them, they keep the brain going, they’re a chuckle and I’m really looking forward to being a part of this exciting brand new one.

"The great thing about Unbeatable is you don’t even need to know the actual answer to appear clever.

"I feel like this is the quiz show I’ve been waiting for my whole life."

You can apply for the series now online here. Applications close 19 February.


Nick Mather, Creative Director of producers Possessed, said: “Unbeatable sees players pit their answers against one another in battles that test their knowledge and ultimately the courage of their convictions. Do they believe they have the Unbeatable answer?

"You can never predict what will happen and yet Jason Manford, always has a brilliant off-the-cuff joke up his sleeve. Unbeatable game and Unbeatable host!"

It's not Jason's first time in charge of a game show, previously hosting First & Last which aired in 2020.

It saw participants given one simple rule: Don't come first or last in any game. If they do, they will be eliminated.


Eleven contestants started each show and competed across a range of five rounds that ended with one of them walking away with up to £10,000.

Six episodes aired in the first series with the BBC yet to confirm a second.
