Well it had been a daily show on the continent so in that sense there’s no real reason why it couldn’t succeed. Davina’s back with a version of The Million Pound Drop but with everything divided by ten – the prize, the bundles of cash (£2.5k each now) and by the looks of things the size of the drop.
Contestants try and keep hold of £100,000 across seven multiple choice questions. Will there be much appetite for watching people struggle to win £2,500? Don’t know. Putting it up against Tipping Point is either ingenious (TP skews old and The Money Drop traditionally skews young) or an acknowledgement that it probably doesn’t work, but they’ve sixty episodes to get through so we’ll see. As yet we don’t know if you can play along on some kind of app.
Ah, do you remember when pointless viewer interactivity was the in thing? Great days. Anyway you can let us know what you think in the comments.
