The Million Pound Drop revival The £100K Drop officially gets launch date on Channel 4
The return of The Million Pound Drop has been given an official date by Channel 4 – as the game show is rebranded to The £100K Drop.
Davina McCall will be back presenting the programme, which has undergone a name change to account for the lower prize money.
The jackpot prize of £100,000 is still nothing to be sniffed at, and viewers can see how the new batch of contestants get on when The £100K Drop launches on Monday, May 7, airing every weekday from 4pm.
The revival series was announced last summer, with Davina saying at the time: “I literally love hosting this show and couldn’t be more thrilled that we are back and coming to daytime!
“£100,000 is a properly life-changing amount of cash and I’m crossing my fingers for some big-money wins. I can’t wait to see you all every weekday afternoon.”
The £100K Drop sees players start with £100,000. For each of the seven questions, they must put real cash on the trap doors that correspond to what they believe to be the correct answers.
Give an incorrect answer, and the money will fall through the trap door before their very eyes.
The format made its international debut on Channel 4 in the UK in May 2010. Since then, it has been sold to 54 other territories.
The original run of The Million Pound Drop ended on March 2015 after 11 series.
