ITV have announced, game show In For A Penny will return for a second season and a Christmas special.

Stephen Mulhern said: “It’s humbling to know that people enjoyed watching the show as much as we enjoyed making it.  We met some incredible people on the first series and I can’t wait to get back out on the streets of the UK meeting the great British public and challenging them to take part in some silly games.  It’s the best job in the world.”
Ant & Dec (co-creators of the format) said: “Another series? You’ve got to be kidding! That’s brilliant news because that means when he’s out on the street filming this, he isn’t bothering us.  Pennies at the ready Great Britain.”

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.”

With a Christmas special now being confirmed, we’ve got our fingers crossed this may be a celebrity edition with Ant & Dec taking part.
