Series overview

Stephen Mulhern will once again be let loose in towns and cities across the UK challenging the Great British public to take part in hilariously silly games in the popular ‘on the street’ gameshow, In For A Penny. 

Nowhere is safe as Stephen will pop up at a host of brand-new locations all over the UK asking shoppers for a penny to take part - there is no contactless on this show.  

The people of Great Britain beware, Stephen could be heading to your town – are you ready to open your suitcases, get soaked with water or balance fruit and veg on your body in the hope of winning a cash prize?   The world famous ‘stop watch game’ will also be making a return giving shoppers the chance to bag £1000. 

Episode 1

On the first show of the new series Stephen heads to Nottingham, but how will the unsuspecting public fare when faced with a host of games including, Driving Me Round The Bend, You Are What You Eat, Check It Out and will anyone to walk away with a grand in the final game In For A Penny?   

In Diving Me Round The Bend, contestants will have just 30 second to reverse park into a designated space.  If they manage to park within the lines they win the money but if any part of the car is on or over the line they leave empty handed. 

You Are What You Eat will see Stephen blindfold both contestants before feeding one member of the pair an item of food from a menu for them to describe to their teammate without saying the name of it. For example, if they are fed a cream eclair, they can’t mention the words cream or eclair.  If the pair correctly guess the items, they will win their food order.

In ‘Check It Out’, Stephen is in a supermarket at the tills, where he presents unsuspecting shoppers with five items on the conveyor belt. If they can correctly guess whether all five item are more or less expensive than the previous item on the belt, Stephen pays for the entire contents of their trolley.

The popular In For A Penny challenges contestants to five rounds of hilarious games; if they win all five rounds, including the ‘famous’ stop-watch game, they bag themselves a whopping £1000.
