Wheel of Fortune to return?

Wow, 2 new hosting gigs announced in one day for her (assuming The Sun is correct).

At least she'll have wheel experience from Spin to Win 🙄

Does anyone know if NI and Wales were affected? During the Panorama fault they both did something different than network.
I think the reason I don't get replies is because I'm 5 hours behind most of the forum.

There was none of this excitement on BBC One Scotland. Everything went out as expected and we got a normal, live voiceover into the News at Six.

I can’t really see it being for anyone other than ITV, but I’d put Channel 4 or Channel 5 as more likely than the BBC.

Wheel of Fortune followed by The Wheel could be quite confusing!

Wheel of Fortune to return?

Can production companies these days not play things straight anymore without adding little bits here and there and changing end games?

If it is coming back, stick to whats best without having to ruin it for no reason at all.

Missed a trick not turning the disinfectant bottle into a 2. 😉


They missed a trick not using the curve as a social distancing ident this whole year

We coulda had socially distanced 2's!

Wheel of Fortune to return?

I'm surprised it's taken nearly 20 years for WoF to return to UK screens but I assume Sony has tried pitching it over the years with not much success until now.

Wheel of Fortune to return?

I caught a bit of the Spanish version of WoF, Ruleta de la Suerte. It has a few innovations compared to the UK version, not least a house band!
Write that down in your copybook now.

Take with a pinch of salt but The Sun are claiming that Alison Hammond is to present a pilot of Wheel of Fortunes which could lead to a series. https://www.thesun.co.uk/tv/13342390/this-morning-alison-hammond-host-wheel-of-fortune/

I assume given Sony owns the format that it's going to made by Stellify, no broadcaster yet but it could easily be on BBC One or ITV. Will be interesting to see if it uses the elements of the American series or use elements of the British version of the format.


Please no. What is it with This Morning staff getting their own vehicles on ITV.

No doubt it'll be padded out to an hour and filled with nonsense which seems to be the ITV way these days (that's if they do it).
PFML84, Meridian AM and SuperSajuuk gave kudos

Funny, over here we're getting a version of WoF too. (besides the syndicated one.)

Is the primetime version an hour or half an hour? I think an hour could potentially hurt it as a format.
