The pilot for Ring My Bell, a TV show based on the popular segment from Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway, was recorded this weekend, and TV Zone can reveal the hosts and format details from the recording.

Comedians and podcasting duo Chris & Rosie Ramsey presented the pilot which was filmed on Sunday evening on the Saturday Night Takeaway set at Television Centre in London. If commissioned, the series is due to air in a primetime Saturday night slot on ITV.

Like the Saturday Night Takeaway game, the format is based on the idea that producers can 'hack' and go live to audience members' Ring doorbell cameras across the country.

The pilot format consisted of various rounds and games involving audience members and members of the public who lived on their streets. Games included 'What Happened Next' where the audience had to guess what happened next in a clip taken from a camera doorbell.

Other rounds consisted of messages being sent to community Whatsapp groups, with the person first to appear at the chosen person's doorbell becoming their 'doorstepper' and played the game with the person in the studio.

Both the doorstopper and studio player had the chance to win thousands of pounds to share between them by taking part in games such as knocking at random doors in the street and asking a question to the homeowner, and going back to their own homes to grab an instructed item.

TV Zone approached ITV for comment on Ring My Bell.
