(Game show news: Sadly, The Guardian's piece treats rumour as fact. Personally, I won't believe it until there's an ITV press release.)

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?

Côr Cymru

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.

They Think it's All Over

Game show news

Blankety Blank
15 August ReBLANKED
A piece in the Sunday People claimed that ITV wanted to make another series of Blankety Blank. We've not been able to confirm that ITV has commissioned a series, as the broadcaster has not commented on the speculation.

The X Factor
1 June Meet the new judges, same as the old judges
Louis Walsh! Sharon Osbourne! Simon Cowell! Nicole Scherzinger! The judging panel for The X Factor has been announced, and the names have bags of experience. With Dermot O'Leary back as host, this year's show takes us back to the glory days of 2013, and with no Gary Barlow.

5 May CJ de Mooi on the move again
CJ de Mooi will leave the Eggheads panel and move to South Africa. CJ, one of the original Eggheads, left the programme between 2012 and 2014. He will be replaced by two new Eggheads who will be found in a televised quiz.

Coach Trip
6 April Coach Trip Rolls onto E4
Coach Trip is heading for a new destination by moving to E4. The series which sees tour guide Brendan Sheerin overseeing a couples tour of Europe, with the least popular couple voted off at the end of each day, has aired on and off for 11 years on Channel 4. The new series will consist of thirty half-hour episodes, and will air later in the year.

The X Factor
5 April Cheryl has The Exit Factor
Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has quit The X Factor. The singer first appeared as a judge between 2008-10, before returning for the 2014-5 series. The former Popstars: The Rivals contestant has chosen to leave to focus on her music career. To date, no judges have been confirmed for the upcoming series, which begins airing this summer.
