The brand-new format will see eight players battle it out on the Tournament Run in a series of tug-of-war quiz matches. As they attempt to knock their opponents out of the game and steal their cash, only one player will make it to the end, where they have the chance to double their money on the Golden Run.

Alex Scott commented: “I’m hoping viewers will love the high energy it brings and watching all the fantastic contestants battle their way through the competition. Its’s a show full of strategy and risk, where favourites can be overthrown, and underdogs can end up top dog!”
