Catchphrase

Catchphrase

Classic game show Catchphrase is back, as the series that taught viewers to ‘say what they see’, makes a welcome return to ITV primetime with new host Stephen Mulhern. The nine-part series, which will include a celebrity special, will see three contestants go head-to-head each week in a bid to identify hidden, familiar phrases represented by state of the art 3D graphic animations. The pressure is higher than ever before as one contestant is eliminated from the competition after the first round, leaving the other two to battle it out in a bid to reach the final. Throughout the show, contestants will bank cash in exchange for Catchphrases they guess correctly ahead of their opponents, with the opportunity to scoop big money should they uncover the coveted bonus Catchphrase. One contestant will then face the new Super Catchphrase round for the chance to win a massive £50,000. All of the show’s most popular features are revived, including loveable mascot Mr Chips, the golden robot who appears sporadically throughout the Catchphrases. Catchphrase is a British game show based on the short-lived U.S. game show of the same name. It originally aired on ITV in the United Kingdom between 12 January 1986 and 19 December 2002. It was presented by Northern Irish comedian Roy Walker from 1986–1999; followed by Nick Weir from 2000–2002, and Mark Curry in 2002.In the original series, two contestants, one male and one female would have to identify the familiar phrase represented by a piece of animation accompanied by background music. The show's mascot, a golden robot called "Mr. Chips", appears in many of the animations. In the revived version of the show, the same format remains, but there are three contestants.In August 2012, it was announced that Stephen Mulhern would host a revived version of the show beginning on 7 April 2013. On 21 August 2013, it was confirmed that Catchphrase has been re-commissioned for a second series, following the success of the first.
