There are no plans for a second series of The Answer Trap in 2022, with Channel 4 declining a second run, TV Zone understands.
The aim of the game, hosted by Anita Rani, was to sort a list of answers into the correct categories to win cash. But there was cunning twist - hiding in each list were a number of Answer Traps.
The traps are answers that have been purposely designed to fool you into thinking they’re right answers, but in fact don’t belong in any of the categories. They are there purely to catch you out.
All the Answer Traps were devised by the resident quiz experts Frank Paul and Bobby Seagull. Their role as Answer Trappers was to create entirely plausible answers that you think are one thing, but you discover to your cost are something else entirely.
Two teams of two playing competed in each episode, they competed to put as many answers as possible into the right category. In every round, if they fell into a first trap it’s a warning. But two traps and they were out – the round was over.
Previous episodes of The Answer Trap are available on All4.
