Presented by BAFTA award-winning comedian Lee Mack, The 1% Club won the Quiz Game Show Award at the 2023 National Television Awards and Best Entertainment Show two years in a row at the Broadcast Awards.

Lee said: “Well let’s be honest, the fact that I haven’t accidentally given a hundred grand to the wrong person or read out the answer instead of the question is as much a surprise to me as it is to everyone else. So I’m delighted that ITV are risking me steering this ship once again! Can’t wait to discover more of the nation’s brainboxes.”

The show’s format sees 100 contestants begin every show but to make it to the end of the show and be in with a chance of winning up to £100,000, contestants must correctly answer a question only 1% of the country would get right.

The 1% Club is commissioned for ITV by Satmohan Panesar, Factual Entertainment Commissioning Editor and Sue Murphy, Head of Factual Entertainment.

In a joint statement, Murphy and Panesar said: “For a show that requires brains… the decision to recommission this multi award-winning, ratings-busting juggernaut, presented by one of Britain’s funniest and most engaging comedians, was actually a no brainer.”

The show was created by Executive Producers Dean Nabarro and Andy Auerbach.

Dean said: “We couldn’t be happier that ITV are commissioning two more series in one go. It’s like getting the 1% question right and still having your Pass.”

The 1% Club has previously had a festive edition of the show and with the show getting two more series, we can’t wait to see the Christmas special!
