Jason Manford to host daytime TV quiz

Unbeatable coming to BBC One this year

Jason Manford is to host a new BBC One daytime quiz called Unbeatable.

The show - to air later this year - will be the comedians’s second stint as  quizmaster following  First & Last, which ran for one series in primetime in 2019.

In the show, four contestants can always give an answer - but they key is to give an unbeatable one to win the cash prize.

Manford said: ‘I know how important daytime quizzes are for a lot of people. I used to sit with my Nana Manford and mum watching them.

‘They keep the brain going, they’re a chuckle and I’m really looking forward to being a part of this exciting new one.

‘The great thing about Unbeatable is you don’t even need to know the actual answer to appear clever. I feel like this is the quiz show I’ve been waiting for my whole life.’

Fifty 45-minute episodes are to be filmed in Glasgow to air later this year.

Nick Mather, creative director of programme-makers Possessed, said: ‘Unbeatable sees players pit their answers against one another in battles that test their knowledge and ultimately the courage of their convictions. Do they believe they have the Unbeatable answer? 

‘You can never predict what will happen and yet Jason Manford, always has a brilliant off-the-cuff joke up his sleeve. ‘

• The makers of The Cube are working on a new Channel 4 game show in which two pairs of contestants sort lists of answers into categories, such as as whether they are celebrity perfumes, 1990s albums, or decoys. Objective Media Group are seeking contestants, who must be in the same Covid bubble, for filming in Glasgow in March and early April. Click here to apply.
