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 I Can See Your Voice
The BBC are looking for fun, competitive and confident teams of two people from the same household or support bubble – but don’t worry, you are not required to sing!
Hosted by Paddy McGuinness, I Can See Your Voice is a brand new, mystery music guessing game, that promises a whole new take on the singing gameshow genre as well as lots of music, comedy and play-along fun for the whole family to enjoy. Each episode will see a team of two contestants aiming to win a cash prize by guessing who can and can’t sing from a group of mystery singers standing before them. But there’s a catch. Can they predict who has the voice of an angel or who will leave them covering their ears in horror – all without ever hearing them sing a note!
