A brand-new version of ITV’s The Cube is coming soon, promising higher stakes than ever before with a life-changing one-million-pound jackpot.
Host Phillip Schofield will return to preside over the high-octane gameshow, which sees contestants attempt seemingly simple tasks within the high-pressure confines of the iconic Perspex box.
Produced by Objective Media Group’s label Wildcard Television, this new 5x60 series will see pairs of contestants, from the same household, take on The Cube. As well as facing solo games, they will also face brand new two player challenges.
Each pair will have nine lives to complete seven games, each worth an increasing amount of money, as they move closer to the huge jackpot. Players will have to overcome extreme nerves and frustration as they take on deceivingly simple tasks such as throwing a ball into a container, balancing on a beam or stopping a clock at precisely 10 seconds. But will they have what it takes to beat the mighty Cube?
As well as the million-pound special series, there will also be a 1x60 celebrity special, allowing well-known names and faces to feel the intense pressure as they endeavour to beat The Cube and win £250,000 for their chosen charity.
Host Phillip Schofield said: “The Cube is such a cracking format but with the players now in teams and a whopping million-pound prize fund, it now means this high-pressure environment has just got tougher. I can’t wait to be reunited with the legendary Perspex Cube!”
Katie Rawcliffe, Head of Entertainment Commissioning at ITV said: “The Cube was a firm favourite with our viewers and now with a life-changing prize and the chance for players to compete in pairs the stakes are even higher. We look forward to more jaw dropping moments that will have viewers shouting at the tv from the edge of their seats.”
The Million Pound Cube launches this Autumn on ITV.
