Contestant calls for UK gameshows
Have you considered going on a TV gameshow or quiz show? It’s a fun way to compete to win a cash prize, and there are always plenty of opportunities to apply. It’s not all about being a general knowledge buff either – there are gameshows for sporty types, musical types and family groups too.
This post lists current UK contestant calls, with details of how to apply – check out my popular post Top tips to get on a TV gameshow for more advice on your application, audition and filming the show itself!
Current UK contestant calls
ITV’s hit game show Tipping Point, hosted by Ben Shephard, is back for a 9th series and they’re on the lookout for contestants (You can read my own experience of appearing on Tipping Point here!)

Fifteen to One
Played over three rounds, the Fifteen To One contestants simply have to avoid elimination. To do that they not only have to answer questions correctly, they must also decide which of their opponents to nominate to put under the question spotlight and it’s this tactical game play that makes Fifteen to One more than just a quiz.
- Email email@example.com before 1st February 2018.
