The first episode of the duo’s quiz show attracted 6.1 million viewers when it aired earlier this year – the biggest hit since The Masked Singer
ITV has confirmed that Ant and Dec’s new game show which features an unlimited jackpot will return for a second series.
Limitless Win, hosted by presenting duo Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, sees contestants answer questions for the chance to win the huge cash pot.
The broadcaster said the first episode of the quiz show has attracted 6.1 million viewers since it first aired earlier this year, making it its biggest launch for a new entertainment series since The Masked Singer.
The pilot episode featured a married couple working on the front line of the NHS winning £500,000 as they gambled £100,000 with only one lifeline left to answer their final question.
Will, an intensive care doctor, and midwife Kathryn said they felt “unbelievable” after they cashed out their prize pot of half a million pounds and said they would put the money towards buying a house and a campervan to travel. Father and son duo Tony and Zee also won a further £250,000 in the second episode.
McPartlin said: “We are thrilled that Limitless Win has been a hit with the viewers and is coming back for more. We’re beyond excited to be able to do it all over again and we can’t wait to find new contestants to play the first TV show with a limitless jackpot.”
Donnelly added: “We’re expecting more, and higher, dizzying climbs up the Limitless money ladder. We can’t wait.”
Series one will conclude this Saturday and the broadcaster has said one pair will “reach dramatic new heights.”
Katie Rawcliffe, ITV’s head of entertainment commissioning, said “Ant & Dec’s Limitless Win has quickly become an audience favourite, with families up and down the country playing along from home. It was a no-brainer to have the high-stakes game show return.”
