ITV have announced Stephen Mulhern will host ‘In For A Penny’ following the success on Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway but could we expect a Christmas special?
Stephen travels the length and breadth of the UK inviting the unsuspecting British public to take part in a host of hilarious and silly games to win a cash prize.
Ant & Dec (co-creators of the format) said: “It was always a highlight for us to watch this segment on Saturday Night Takeaway and we are delighted it’s now become a series. Stephen is the perfect host, his warmth, wit and all-round humour mixed with the great British public, who are not only brilliant but are also unfazed when a man in a sparkly jacket appears and asks them to take part in ridiculous games! It makes for some fantastically funny TV”.
Stephen Mulhern: “I have absolutely loved filming this show. I don’t think I have ever laughed so much filming a series and it was all down to the Great British public, they are the real stars. I’ve been privileged to meet some of the most amazing people up and down the country and now the viewers will get to see just how funny and entertaining they are.”
While a Christmas special has not been confirmed, we’ve got our fingers crossed we’ll see a festive edition of the show perhaps with celebrity guests!
