The National Television Award-winning primetime quiz presented by Lee Mack has been recommissioned for a fourth and fifth series, including Christmas specials, by ITV.

Imagine a game show where an eight-year-old has as much chance of winning as an 80-year-old or where intelligence isn’t based on how many exams you passed, but is all about how your brain works - The 1% Club is a unique, compelling and funny gameshow that tests the nation’s intelligence, based on a scientific survey.

This primetime entertainment format is not about what you learned at school or your ability to memorise facts – it’s about real intelligence and a chance to test your brain through a series of questions that often lead to extremely entertaining answers which sees host Lee Mack interacting with the contestants.

Everyone is on a level playing field and that means that anyone can play along, making it the show for family and friends to watch together.

Lee Mack: "Let’s be honest, the fact that I haven’t accidentally given a hundred grand to the wrong person or read out the answer instead of the question is as much a surprise to me as it is to everyone else. I’m really delighted that ITV is risking me steering this ship once again. I can’t wait to discover more of the nation’s brainboxes."

A source added to The Sun: "The show has well and truly proved its popularity with viewers, and so it’s only natural to bring it back for not one, but two more rounds. This will also include two Christmas specials, which will air on ITV after the main series have run."
