Impact of COVID-19

Impact of COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic has turned everything upside down, and the world of game shows is no exception, so we now have a dedicated page to keep tabs on the shows affected. Do give us a shout if you know of something we've missed.

Greatest Game Shows

The 100 Most Popular Game Shows
One question you almost certainly haven't been asking yourself is "What are the 100 most popular articles on this site?". Well, tough, because we have and you can see the result of our Greatest Game Shows - now updated for 2022 and ranging from stalwarts like The Crystal Maze and Interceptor to, er, Man O Man. Who knew?

While UKGameshows.com is (even if we say so ourselves) the most comprehensive guide to the genre anywhere on - or off - the web, with over 2100 programmes already in our database it is inevitable that even we're stumped sometimes. So we're asking for your help. A number of our "most wanted" shows are now listed here and a team of volunteers is standing by, waiting to add your contributions to our compendium of game show knowledge. Go on, help us out. It's what Mumsy would want.

The Great British Bake Off
6 December Matt Lucas leaves the tent
Matt Lucas has announced on Twitter that he will be leaving his hosting duties of The Great British Bake Off after the end of the celebrity specials that will be airing next year. His replacement will be revealed in due course.

Eurovision Song Contest
22 November Voting Changes for Eurovision 2023
The European Broadcasting Union has announced that there will be a couple of changes in the voting system for next year's Eurovision Song Contest. The first change is that non-participating countries will be able to vote in the new online voting via the Eurovision website in both the Semi-Finals and the Grand Final. The second change is the voting in the Semi-Finals will now be 100% televoting, with some exceptions if a country doesn't have a recorded or valid televote result, in which case a jury backup will be used. The voting in the Grand Final will remain unchanged.

Eurovision Song Contest
20 October Thirty Seven Cross the Mersey
The European Broadcasting Union has announced the thirty seven countries who will take part in next year's Eurovision Song Contest. Of the 40 which competed this year, Bulgaria, North Macedonia and Montenegro will not take part due to financial constraints, resulting in the joint-smallest field (alongside 2014) since the introduction of the second semi-final in 2008.

Love Island
12 October Maya Loveisland… Jama!
Continuing their run of hiring hosts who have previously hosted dating shows, ITV have replaced Laura Whitmore (Survival of the Fittest) as host of Love Island with Maya Jama (True Love or True Lies).

Judith Keppel
10 October Keppel retires
Judith Keppel has announced she is retiring from Eggheads, stating that at the age of 80, her memory is not what it used to be. It is unclear whether or not she will be replaced.
