The 1% Club Gets Extended Run on ITV


ITV has renewed the game show The 1% Club for a third season, which will see double the number of episodes, going from 8 to 16.

Hosted by Lee Mack and produced by Magnum Media, the Saturday night prime-time show is currently on air in its second run in the U.K. There will also be two Christmas specials, for this year and 2024.

Mack said: “Once again, I am delighted to cause household arguments, as kids mock their parents for being not as bright as them. But us grown-ups can stay out as late as we want, so we get the last laugh.”

ITV’s Satmohan Panesar, commissioning editor, said: “Establishing a new game show and finding an audience is no easy task in such a competitive field, but the combination of The 1% Club‘s unique, inclusive format and our host Lee’s brilliantly spontaneous interaction with the studio audience has proved a big hit with viewers. As the current series continues in its successful run, we’re excited to be able to announce a third new series as well as two Christmas specials which we’re sure will be a massively entertaining addition to festive telly for all the family.”

Dean Nabarro at Magnum Media said: “For all those people who still haven’t managed to get the 1% question right, the great news is there will be another 16 shows to prove you’ve got what it takes to be in The 1% Club.”
