Alan Carr said: “Each time we get to come back and do more Epic Gameshow I have to pinch myself. I still can’t believe I’m lucky enough to host these absolute staples of British TV, and now with Child’s Play in the mix, this new series is going to be better (and funnier) than ever.”
Jonno Richards, Managing Director of Talkback (a Fremantle label) added: “Childs Play has always been a particular favourite of ours here at Talkback, so getting to bring it into the Epic family is really special. With audiences having already embraced our other Epic gameshows, it’s going to be a fantastic series with this new addition.”
Katie Rawcliffe, Head of Entertainment Commissioning at ITV, commented: “Epic Gameshow is that perfect combination of nostalgia and play along family fun, and with Alan back at the helm we look forward to serving up another run of hilarious Saturday night entertainment.”
