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?

Telly Addicts

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.

A Song for Europe
16 September BMG: You Decide
The BBC has announced that it is teaming up with music company BMG to select the United Kingdom's entry for the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam, Netherlands. This comes after four years of selection by public vote producing very modest results, with this year's entrant Michael Rice finishing last in Tel Aviv, Israel.

Ready Steady Cook
4 September Green peppers or red tomatoes, babes?
The BBC is bringing back Ready Steady Cook with Rylan Clark-Neal as host. The new version, to be aired on BBC One, will apparently reflect contemporary issues such as healthy eating and managing food waste. Rylan is also hosting a reboot of another classic daytime show, Supermarket Sweep, and will replace Brian Conley as host of Buy It Now when it returns for its Christmas special.

30 May 2019 Alan Carr's Fabulous Five
