​ITV’s The Family Chase Looking for Families For New Series

Last year ITV made six 'Family' episodes of the popular daytime show The Chase, which aired on Saturday evenings.

This year it's back, and the producers are on the lookout for families who want to be on the show to try stay one step ahead of the Chaser for the opportunity to win thousands of pounds.

The ITV teatime favourite, hosted by Bradley Walsh, is set to come back to our TV screens later this year and they're looking for contestants brave enough to take on the likes of Mark Labbett, Shaun Wallace, Anne Hegerty, Paul Sinha and Jenny Ryan.

The six-episode run will consist of each show featuring a different family who will each answer a series of general knowledge questions as they attempt to get their tactics right and make it into the final chase, where they will then face the Chaser once again for the chance to walk away with the prize.

Managing Director at ITV Studios' production label, Potato, Michael Kelpie, said: "Bringing four family members together to face the chaser brings a whole new dynamic to the most successful gameshow currently on TV. They know each other's strengths and weaknesses, they've discussed a strategy beforehand but of course, that can all mean nothing when they go face-to-face against one of the UK's finest quiz brains."

He added: "The Family Chase compliments both the Daytime weekday and Celebrity primetime shows. With even more fun and banter between Bradley, chasers and the families, it still delivers all the core values that has made The Chase a firm favourite with the viewers."
