MONEYBAGS: DAYTIME QUIZ RETURNS FOR SECOND SERIES AND CELEBRITY SPECIALS

The quiz that challenges contestants to literally grab themselves a fortune every afternoon will be back later this year with host Craig Charles.



Moneybags is a high-stakes quiz that tests contestants’ ability to think quickly as they answer each question by grabbing the moneybag with the correct answer as it passes along a conveyor belt in front of them.



It's now been revealed that the series will include a run of celebrity specials. Celebrities appearing include Claire Richards, Tom Read Wilson and Dane Baptiste. Full list of celebrities will be confirmed in due course.


Those who grab the right answer earn that bag’s value, which can be anything from £1,000 to £100,000. But should the wrong bag be picked up contestants risk losing everything.



There’s an enormous £1 million passing down the conveyor belt each week, and it’s up to the contestants to try to grab as much as possible.


Executive producer David Flynn of Youngest Media said, “After such a well-received first series we’re so glad to be bringing the drama, fun and jeopardy of Moneybags back to Channel 4. With £1million on the line once again every week, Craig Charles will challenge more contestants to grab themselves a fortune and change their lives.”



Jayne Stanger, Commissioner, Daytime and Features said: “We’re so excited to bring back Moneybags after the first series received an amazing reception. It is great to have Craig back on board to give our daytime viewers more quick-fire quizzing and tense moments.”


Moneybags returns to Channel 4 later this year. More details will be revealed in due course.
