As if Tenable and Lingo wasn’t enough, ITV selfishly look for a third successful show to add to the 3pm rotation with R¿dd?culous.
Good Morning Britain‘s Ranvir Singh is joined by Riddlemaster Henry Lewis (better known, for now, for The Goes Wrong Show) as three teams of two answer general knowledge questions to be in with a chance to tackle one of Henry’s riddles, the most successful team will get the chance to take on Henry’s Riddle Run at the end of the show for moderate-to-big cash prizes.
Riddles feel like an untapped idea for a quiz show really, and I suspect people are going to either take to them or get annoyed extremely quickly. I’ve not got much idea as to the sort of form they might take, but this interview with Ranvir suggests that many are going to be visual and rebus-like, and basically everyone likes Catchphrase don’t they. Apparently Paul Farrer uses THREE different types of harpsichord on the soundtrack.
