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 - it lists stalwarts like The Crystal Maze and Interceptor to surprises such as Kate Thornton's Dishes. Who knew?

Anton Du Beke

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 Apprentice
19 December 2014 Nick, You're Fired!
Nick Hewer has described his decision as a "relief tinged with regret" to not be Lord Sugar's aide for future series of The Apprentice. The 70-year-old PR expert explained in his statement that "I've been pondering my departure from The Apprentice for a while and have decided that year 10 is the appropriate time." He will still be hosting Countdown.

The Voice UK
23 September 2014 Rita Ora finds her Voice
The BBC have announced that Rita Ora will join the judging panel on The Voice UK when it returns for its fourth series early next year. The singer, who will replace Kylie Minogue, guest judged on The X Factor in 2012, and will appear alongside returning coaches will.i.am, Sir Tom Jones, and Ricky Wilson.

17 September 2014 Rising Star Falls
ITV has cancelled forthcoming singing contest Rising Star. The series, which was to have replaced Dancing on Ice early next year, sees viewers voting via an app as contestants perform, with only those securing 70% or more positive votes progressing to the next stage. The programme was a success in its native Israel, but has under-performed in both the United States and Germany, prompting ITV's decision to cancel it.

Deal or No Deal
8 September 2014 Deal for a Decade
Channel 4 has renewed Deal or No Deal until the end of 2015. The agreement makes sure that Noel and his red box club will mark their tenth birthday at the end of October next year. We've also heard about changes to the game, including a way for the studio player to demand an offer from The Banker.

Never Mind the Buzzcocks
9 July 2014 New Rock Follies
Welsh stand-up comic Rhod Gilbert has been confirmed as the new permanent host of the music comedy panel game Never Mind the Buzzcocks. Guest presenters have filled the chair for 4 years, since Simon Amstell stepped down as the resident ringmaster in 2008.

The X Factor
11 June 2014 Zig-a-zig-ah! Mel B joins The X Factor
Mel B has been announced as the fourth and final judge on this year's series of The X Factor. The former Spice Girl was previously a guest judge on the 2012 series, and has also judged on the Australian version of the programme, and on America's Got Talent. She will join Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole who are returning to the panel, as well as long-standing judge Louis Walsh, who, contrary to earlier reports, has not left the programme. The new series will begin airing in the summer.
