Alan Carr is set to host new BBC quiz show Picture Slam, airing on Saturday nights.
The quiz will see Carr show teams of two a board of images. Every picture shown is worth a cash bonus, which they can claim by identifying the object in the photo. If they can correctly identify every image on the board they will earn themselves a “picture slam” and a bigger bonus.
However, in order for the team to take the money home they must pass through four rounds of photos and reach the final, beating the other two teams in the process.
Here, they will have the chance to win a jackpot prize of up to £10,000, but only by naming every single photo they are shown. If they get one wrong, they will lose out on the big jackpot, but take all their banked cash home.
Carr (Interior Design Masters) remarked to the BBC: “Who doesn’t love a good quiz? When I found out the BBC wanted little old me to present Picture Slam I jumped at the chance!”
Head of Entertainment for the BBC, Kalpna Patel-Knight, commented: "Picture Slam is a fast paced Saturday night play along quiz that requires contestants to be fast thinking and fast acting which results in loads of laugh out loud moments, making the quick-witted Alan Carr our perfect ringmaster!"
Filming will take place at Pacific Quay Studios in Glasgow later in 2023.
