Sitting On A Fortune

Episode 5

Gary Lineker hosts Sitting On A Fortune, the quiz show that has contestants lining up for the chance to stay in the money chair until the end of the show to try and take the jackpot. 

Tonight, Lucille, Paul, Chinedu, Kieran, Carol and Suky all step up to play for a massive £100,000 prize.  

Correct answers keep players in the money chair, but a wrong answer means they move to the back of the line and risk going home with nothing.

Everything could change from one question to the next as tensions run high and the contestants compete to stay in the money chair.

Who has what it takes to hold on to the top spot and play for that massive prize? 

Series overview

SIX players. SIX chairs. NO lifelines. And £100,000 at stake.

Who will find themselves in the perfect place at the perfect time for the chance to take home a life changing prize?

Gary Lineker hosts a unique new high stakes, high tension game show, Sitting On A Fortune, in which players could win up to £100,000.

This pulse-quickening general knowledge quiz features six players all trying to be in the right place at the right time to take away a potentially life-changing amount of money.

The new ITV Entertainment format features no lifelines, safety nets, or chances to walk away, meaning players must risk everything on getting the right answer in the hope of taking home the big prize.

In a unique twist, players take to the stage and position themselves in a row of seats, one behind another. Where you sit makes all the difference as only the player in the chair at the head of the line gets the chance to answer questions, stay in the game and have the chance of winning the jackpot.

One wrong answer sees a player relegated to the back of the line and in real danger of leaving with nothing and someone else moves up to take pole position. One player’s success could instantly be another player’s ruin.

With the jackpot mounting, there can be only one winner. Who can stay in the hot seat long enough to take away up to £100,000? In this show there really can only be one player left sitting on a fortune.
