It wouldn’t surprise me - does he do much else other than This Morning? I know he had that 5 Gold Rings thing, and that strikes me as something that would work with social distancing, but whether that was even recommissioned for a fourth series is up in the air.


They shot series 4 back to back with series 3 last year so it'll likely air in the Autumn.

Ranvir Singh & Alex Beresford are to have a new weekend ITV show which it says is an ITV Regional News production. It's a weekly regional news round-up. 10 X 60 mins from the Autumn.

Plus details of some some other new commissions featuring Alan Titchmarsh & Ainsley Harriot.

All Around Britain is interesting. Even though it's a ITV Regions production, I imagine it wouldn't contribute to regional quotas given that it'll be broadcast nationally. Scotland will likely not be featured and STV probably won't take the programme.

I wonder if this is a response to the axing of Inside Out by the BBC?

Philip Schofield posted the casting call on his Snapchat story, leading me to think he is the host.

I assume this will be the ITV Breakfast slot, Kate Garraway sadly didn't get to do her show.
My contribution is small but you are welcome.

How to Spend it Well is one of those programmes that oddly suits Phil. I believe they filmed a series of How to Spend it Well on Holiday which will have to be reworked to reflect the pandemic.

It was in the schedule in early March, and was pulled at the last minute, and at the time nobody really understood why, as surely they could edit out references to Cruises or holidays to Northern Italy!

Back to the Cube and it seems they’ve finally sold the format in the US as there is a casting call. I never really understand why a series was never commissioned there they did do at least one pilot.

Of course they did have ‘Minute to Win It’ at the same time, which was basically the Cube without the Cube. Amazingly that show still managed to get commissioned in the UK and by ITV (2) with a team format to make it more like Friends Like These than The Cube. But the Cube always seemed like the better more focused product.

Yes, was it Neil Patrick Harris who did the pilot, filmed on the UK set. Minute to Win It always felt like a cheap rip off - I'm not sure of the going price for a rectangular cuboid but I'd have thought not much different to some centre pieces of other shows. I guess the filming techniques were where the cost came in.


It does feel a bit like this revival though is as a result of producers looking for formats behind perspex screens, so good on The Cube team for exploiting it.

But I think gameshows have been the big winners of lockdown with Beat the Chasers and Millionaire delivering good performances in the early days. And in the US Millionaire back on its feet and The Weakest Link getting a reboot too.

The other thing with gameshows they can generally be adapted much more easily for social distancing compared to drama and there are only so many interviews over zoom people can take.

Will this mean more shows will feature a gunge tank?
