In For A Penny is a brand new, on the street game show, hosted by Stephen Mulhern. Made famous as a segment on Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway, In For A Penny sees Stephen challenge members of the British public to turn their pennies into pounds. 


Stephen travels the length and breadth of the UK inviting the unsuspecting British public to take part in a host of hilarious and often silly games to win a cash prize.  


The only game show that can be played from anywhere in the country, Stephen, along with his gold sparkly jacket and portable game show props, can pop up anywhere from petrol stations to shopping centres, surprising people and randomly selecting whoever he can find to take part in games such as Pump It Up, Mum’s The Word and the popular In For A Penny, from Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.


On tonight’s show Stephen heads to Norwich, but can he entice some unsuspecting holiday makers to reveal the contents of their suitcases and guess the weight of their luggage in ‘Weigh To Go’, to brave ice cold buckets of water in ‘Whatever the Weather’ and guess the price of five items in their shopping trolleys, in ‘Check It Out’.  


The finale will see shoppers playing the popular In For A Penny (as seen on Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway) and successfully face five rounds of hilarious games and bag them they bag themselves a whopping £1000.
