The Cube returns with a one million pound jackpot

Phillip Schofield will once again host the intense proceedings, as the game show sees participants complete a series of seemingly simple challenges within the claustrophobic cube.

Schofield commented: “The Cube is such a cracking format but with the players now in teams and a whopping million-pound prize fund, it now means this high-pressure environment has just got tougher.

“I can’t wait to be reunited with the legendary Perspex Cube!”

Brand-new ITV quiz show 5 Gold Rings to be hosted by Phillip Schofield

5 Gold Rings will see two teams go head-to-head over the course of five rounds. One team will walk away with up to £25,000 whilst the other will leave with nothing. 

The teams will have to battle against the clock to answer questions by placing gold rings onto a supersized image displayed beneath their feet. For example, the picture might be a map of the world and teams will attempt the question, ‘Where is the highest mountain on earth?’ by placing a gold ring on the image where they think the answer is.
