It’s the word guessing game that’s got the whole nation on tenterhooks, and now audiences are about to get double the fun, as Lingo returns for another daytime run.
Adil Ray OBE returns to host a fourth series of the nail-biting, hit daytime format, which, with a peak audience of 1.9 million viewers, boasts the best launch of a game show in a 3pm slot since 2002. The second half of series three is expected to air this Autumn.
The new episodes will reintroduce viewers to the unmissable game show format which sees three teams of contestants competing against each other in a game where being lost for words can cost you everything.
As the prize money soars, the contestants will risk it all in a bid to reach the End Game, where the last pair standing can double the money…but if the words escape them, they leave with nothing.
Adil previously said: “I’m so grateful to everyone watching at home, the entire crew and our fab contestants for giving me another chance to host one of the best shows on TV! Even to those who shout four letter Lingos at me in the street!”
ITV Head of Entertainment Commissioning Katie Rawcliffe previously said: “It’s not often a show comes along that captures the nation’s imagination in the way Lingo has. So it was an absolute no brainer to welcome the series back for another run, hosted by the brilliant Adil.”
Previous episodes of Lingo are available on ITVX.
