Channel 4 Moves Davina McCall-Hosted The £100K Drop to Daytime


Channel 4 Daytime has commissioned a bumper 60 episodes of The £100K Drop from Remarkable Television, part of Endemol Shine Group.

Presented by Davina McCall, The £100K Drop, formerly The Million Pound Drop, will air on Channel 4 in 2018 in an afternoon slot. In each episode, a pair of contestants begins with £100,000. They’ll have to give the correct answer to seven questions in order to take home all of the money. If they’re wrong, the cash drops through the floor in front of their eyes.

McCall said, “I literally love hosting this show and couldn’t be more thrilled that we are back and coming to daytime! £100,000 is a properly life-changing amount of cash and I’m crossing my fingers for some big money wins. I can’t wait to see you all every weekday afternoon.”

Syeda Irtizaali, Channel 4’s commissioning editor for entertainment, commented, “I’m delighted this award-winning, brilliant game show with its heart-pounding tension and addictive gameplay will be returning daily to Channel 4 for a new audience to enjoy. I am really excited Davina is back at the helm and can’t wait to hear her utter those famous catch phrases ‘move your money’ and ‘let’s see what’s about to drop’ once again.”

Richard Hague, the head of entertainment at Remarkable Television, added, “The £100K Drop has all of the original format’s nail-biting tension, genuine jeopardy and excitement as players attempt to beat the Drop, keeping viewers on the edge of their seats. We are very excited to be bringing the show to a brand-new audience and overjoyed that the brilliant Davina will be returning as host.”
