Actor and comedian Adil Ray is to host ITV contest 'Lingo', which is based on word games.

Three teams are pitted against each other in a battle to find words.  With each round the stakes become higher and the prize money escalates. Tactics are paramount - if a team cannot find a word there are opportunities for their opponents to swoop in and claim the word and the money.   

Only one pair makes it to the End Game, where they can double their prize pot - however, if words fail them, they could lose everything and leave empty handed.

Adil Ray will oversee the under-pressure contestants as they come up with some weird and wonderful words, and undoubtedly some words that simply do not exist with hilarious consequences. Adil said: “I feel like I have just won the star prize on a game show! I am so excited to be working with ITV and Wildcard and to be hosting such a brilliant game. When I told my Aunty about it she wanted to come on as a contestant, as long as it was in Punjabi. She won't be coming on. But you could be, and I promise Lingo will be lots of fun. You have my word.”

Casting has started and producers are looking for competitive pairs from the same household to take part. To apply, email
