Phillip Schofield to host new ITV game show

Phillip Schofield is set to host a brand new ITV game show '5 Gold Rings'.

The 54-year-old television presenter has landed the hosting job on the new game show which will see two teams of contestants battle it out for the chance to win £25,000.

For the concept of the show, each team will have to answer questions by placing gold rings onto an LED display on the studio floor. The rings decrease in size as the teams progress, meaning the answers they give need to be more specific.

A source said of the show: "The concept for the show itself is really clever.

"There's a huge demand for game shows at the moment and everyone's convinced that this will really catch on.

"Phillip is the perfect choice to host 5 Gold Rings as everyone knows he is a safe pair of hands and a true professional."

And it isn't the first time Phillip has hosted a game show for the major broadcaster either, as he also fronted 'All Star Mr & Mrs', 'The Cube', and 'Beat The Star'.

Speaking about his new job, the 'This Morning' host told The Sun newspaper: "I love the whole concept of this show. It's such a simple idea.

"It looks amazing and anyone can play. I can't wait to get started."

And viewers who like to play along with the shows at home will be pleased too, as ITV are also developing an app which will allow audiences to play the game much in the same way as Channel 4's interactive game 'The Million Pound Drop'.

'5 Gold Rings' is set to hit television screens on ITV in the coming months.
