Gordon Ramsay is leaving the kitchen behind to host his first ever quiz show, with Gordon Ramsay’s Bank Balance arriving on BBC One.
Fans can expect an elaborate set-up, with contestants vying for the chance to win a grand total of £100,000.
What kind of host will Gordon be? He’s known for his explicit language in the kitchen, and the teaser trailer suggests that he’ll be just as fiery in his new role.
Gordon promises not to ‘shout’, ‘swear’ or ‘be mean’ in the clip, only to break those promises immediately.
‘By the time you’ve picked the category I’m gonna be older than Mary Berry,’ he says to a contestant in one savage moment.
There are sure to be fireworks when the programme begins, with episodes coming our way over the next three weeks. This is everything you need to know about the show.
How does Gordon Ramsay’s Bank Balance work?
Contestants will compete in pairs to win cash prizes. They’ll answer questions in order to stack different sized gold bars onto a precarious balance board. The more bars, the more money, with a total of £100,000 up for grabs.
According to the BBC, contestants will have their ‘poise, precision, knowledge and nerve’ tested along the way, or see their pot of cash ‘come crashing down in an instant.’
The show was filmed in Covid-secure surroundings and contestants filmed the programme in household groups or support bubbles.
Gordon said: ‘This is going to be truly epic. It is such an intense game with so much jeopardy to win big and lose even bigger, where the difference between failure and success is always in the balance.’
He added: ‘I’m so happy to be working with the fantastic team at the BBC and cannot wait to get in the studio and start stacking those gold bars!’
What time does Gordon Ramsay’s Bank Balance on?
Gordon Ramsay’s Bank Balance begins on BBC One at 9pm on Wednesday February 24.
