GARY LINEKER'S SITTING ON A FORTUNE AXED BY ITV AFTER TWO SERIES
Sitting On A Fortune, the ITV gameshow hosted by Gary Lineker, will not be returning for a third series any time soon.
TV Zone understands that ITV have no plans for a third series, though do not rule out returning to the format in the future. TV Zone also reports that ITV have made the same decision about Moneyball, hosted by Ian Wright. More details here.
In the high tension game show, which first aired in Autumn 2021, players could win up to £100,000. The quiz features six players all trying to be in the right place at the right time to take away a potentially life-changing amount of money.
The format features no lifelines, safety nets, or chances to walk away, meaning players must risk everything on getting the right answer in the hope of taking home the big prize.
In a unique twist, players take to the stage and position themselves in a row of seats, one behind another. Where you sit makes all the difference as only the player in the chair at the head of the line gets the chance to answer questions, stay in the game and have the chance of winning the jackpot.
One wrong answer sees a player relegated to the back of the line and in real danger of leaving with nothing and someone else moves up to take pole position. One player’s success could instantly be another player’s ruin.
With the jackpot mounting, there can be only one winner. Who can stay in the hot seat long enough to take away up to £100,000? In this show there really can only be one player left sitting on a fortune.
Sitting On A Fortune is available on ITVX.
