Contestant calls for UK gameshows
Have you considered going on a UK 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 TV gameshows for sporty types, musical types and family groups too.
This post lists current UK gameshows that are looking for contestants, 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!
Contestants wanted for these UK gameshows!
Apply for Tipping Point
ITV’s hit game show Tipping Point is back, and they’re looking for contestants for series 12! Apply online at https://www.shortaudition.com/Tipping-Point-12 before 7 May 2021.
Apply for a new Channel 4 daytime quiz show
Two pairs of contestants go head-to-head, sorting lists of answers into categories, adding money to their prize fund as they go. Sounds pretty straight forward, right? But within the lists are decoy answers set by the resident boffins – fall for too many decoys and you’ll lose the chance to add money to your prize fund, allowing your opponents to jump in! You’ll need a mix of intelligence, common sense, and just a little bit of luck to make it through three rounds and on to the jackpot game for the chance to take home thousands of pounds!
Objective Media Group are looking for teams of two to take part. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, you must be from the same household or in an extended single person support bubble. The pairs can be family members, friends, or couples aged 18 and over.
Apply here before 12 February 2021 – the show will be filmed in Glasgow in late March and early April.
Apply for Who Wants To Be A Millionaire
Have you got the brainpower? Are you the Fastest Finger? Can you cope with the pressure? Will you make it to £1Million?
If you would like the chance to sit opposite Jeremy in the world-famous Hotseat apply now and you could be just 15 questions away from becoming a Millionaire! Apply on the ITV website – applications close on 31 January 2021.
Apply for Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway
If you fancy taking part yourself in Saturday Night Takeaway, or if you’d like to nominate someone you know for the surprise of their life, then ITV want to hear from you!
