The UK version of the show, which was presented by Dale Winton, ran for seven series between 1993 and 2001 on ITV, before being revived for a one off-series in 2007.

The supermarket-based show sees teams answering questions and puzzles based on the products and merchandise of supermarkets around the world. It culminates in an all-or-nothing trolley dash through the aisles, as the finalists hunt down items hidden among the supermarket shelves to win a big cash prize.
