IF YOU MISSED IT: The Hit List, BBC One’s music quiz where contestants must name as many hit songs and artists under intense pressure, is set to return for a sixth series.
Made by Tuesday’s Child Scotland and filmed at Pacific Quay in Glasgow, The Hit List (12 x 45’) will see Marvin and Rochelle Humes return to host TV’s most thrilling music quiz as pairs of contestants try to name the artist and title of hit songs over three different rounds before the last team standing face The Final Chart Rundown to be in with a chance of winning up to £10,000.
The 2023 run will include the regular series plus a brand new batch of celebrities in some very special themed episodes including Eurovision and Strictly Come Dancing.
The Hit List hosts Marvin and Rochelle Humes say: “We’re back! Honestly, we can’t believe that we are now onto our SIXTH series! We have the best time hosting the show together and once again we have not only the regular series but some great celebrity and brilliant themed episodes up our sleeves as well - we can’t wait to get stuck in for even more Saturday night play-along fun!”
Karen Smith, Executive Producer of The Hit List, says: “Tuesday’s Child Scotland are thrilled to get our sixth series of The Hit List commissioned. Could this be the season that sees our winners finally claim the full £10,000 prize money in TV’s most nerve-shredding end game? It can be done, but will it be done? We have a fabulous celebration sequence ready if the big moment arrives!”
Neil McCallum, Commissioning Editor for the BBC, says: “It’s been brilliant witnessing the growth of The Hit List and to have reached a 6th series so quickly and it becoming a firm favourite amongst viewers on Saturday nights on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.”
