Channel 4’s big money afternoon quiz show, Moneybags is back for a second series this August in its brand new timeslot of 5pm. The hit gameshow will launch with a week of celebrity specials featuring famous faces from the worlds of television, music, comedy and sport.
Host Craig Charles returns to welcome a raft of new contestants all in with a chance of winning a life-changing cash prize, with a cool £1 million quite literally up for grabs each week, including one single bag worth £100k.
Celebrities taking part are are actress Catherine Tyldesley, Olympic athlete Greg Rutherford, Steps star Claire Richards, comedian and actress Nina Wadia, Celebs Go Dating’s Tom Read Wilson, impressionist actress Kate Robbins, comedian Dane Baptiste, Atomic Kitten singer Natasha Hamilton, original punk wild child Toyah Willcox and fitness legend, Mr Motivator.
Moneybags is a high-stakes quiz that tests contestants’ ability to think quickly as they answer each question by grabbing the moneybag with the correct answer as it passes along a conveyor belt in front of them. Those who grab the right answer earn that bag’s value, which can be anything from £1,000 to £100,000. But should the wrong bag be picked up, contestants risk losing everything. There’s an enormous £1 million passing down the conveyor belt each week, and it’s up to the contestants to try to grab as much as possible.
