Adil Ray OBE returns to host a third 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 50 x 60” 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.
Host Adil Ray 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!"
Lingo returns Monday 2nd January at 4pm on ITV1, and continues weekdays at 3pm.
