Gordon Ramsay has signed on as host of a brand-new game show, Bank Balance, for prime time on BBC One.
Devised and produced by Studio Ramsay, Bank Balance is a high-stakes, high-pressure game show in which contestants test their poise, precision, knowledge and nerve to succeed to build themselves a fortune—or see it come crashing down in an instant. Filming will begin later this year.
Ramsay said: “This is going to be truly epic. It is such an intense game with so much jeopardy to win big and lose even bigger, where the difference between failure and success is always in the balance. I’m so happy to be working with the fantastic team at the BBC and cannot wait to get in the studio and start stacking those gold bars!”
Kate Phillips, controller of entertainment commissioning, added: “Bank Balance is a great format where contestants need to balance nerve with knowledge. And Gordon will be a formidable and unforgettable host.”
