It's not only prizes that are huge on new ITV1 game show Red or Black, so are the wages! Presenters Ant and Dec are scooping the biggest of the lot, reportedly landing a deal worth a whopping £750,000 each to front the new primetime programme this September.
The show will aim to make 7 millionaires in 1 week by giving awake £1 million every night to one lucky contestant who successfully bets on either Red or Black!
“This is the most expensive game show in TV history," a source told the Daily Star. “Ant and Dec are the safest pairs of hands on telly and Simon was desperate to have them. The lads’ contract doesn’t cover any new formats so they have to pay them extra to secure them for Red or Black?”.
The source added: “This show could make seven people millionaires in one week. But the format could mean nobody wins a million.”
