Random Rewind: we look back at some the best, and occasionally worst, entertainment shows from the past decade.


You're Back In The Room

2015, ITV


You're Back In The Room was an ITV primetime gameshow, hosted by Phillip Schofield with Keith Barry. It ran for 2x4 episode series in Spring 2015 and 2016.



You're Back in the Room saw competitors pitched against each other to win big cash prizes, after each is hypnotised by international hypnotist Keith Barry.


The first series averaged a respectable 4m viewers over four weeks, however the second series started with 3.2 and hit a low of 2.58m in April 2016.




Whilst the contestants on the programme were members of the public, each episode welcomed various celebrity guests. These included the cast of Loose Women, Coronation Street and BGT winners Diversity.


First airing in March 2015, it was recommissioned for a second series that Summer, which aired in March 2016. In October 2016, ITV confirmed that the format would not be returning for a third run.



A source told Digital Spy at the time: "You're Back in the Room was a bold, innovative, and funny idea and an exciting format. It was a completely different show which we're really proud of. Unfortunately, the team felt after two series, it had done its job."
