THE FORTUNE HOTEL: ITV SETS SIGHTS ON SECOND SERIES

ITV are reportedly setting their sights on a second series of reality series The Fortune Hotel ahead of the conclusion of its second series.



Set in a luxury Caribbean resort, the series is hosted by the incomparable Stephen Mangan and sees 10 pairs of contestants arrive at The Fortune Hotel, where they will be given an all-important briefcase.



Inside one case is the ultimate jackpot of £250,000 in cash, eight are empty, and one contains the dreaded Early Checkout Card – whichever pair is left holding that case at the end of each show will see their stay brought to a dramatic, premature end. 


Every day the contestants have the chance to try to uncover who has which case through playing compelling challenges, and as the “Whogotit” mystery ramps up for the hotel guests, viewers at home will remain deliciously in-the-know throughout, witness to all of their plans and strategies playing out.




The climax of each episode is the nerve-shredding case swap in the seductive Lady Luck bar where each pair must decide whether to keep or swap their case. Have the couple with the life-changing sum of cash managed to bluff and blag their way free of suspicion? Or will their case be ruthlessly taken off them? And who will be left holding the case containing the Early Checkout Card?


A source told The Sun: "Launching new formats is a gamble these days and an uncommonly large number have fallen by the wayside despite them showing some promise... “Despite a considerable spend, ITV is working on plans for round two."



The Fortune Hotel opens its doors on Monday 13th May at 9pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
