The Fortune Hotel opens its doors on ITV1 and ITVX

ITV1 and ITVX announce a thrilling and high-octane new reality entertainment event, The Fortune Hotel, launching in 2024. 

Produced by Tuesday’s Child exclusively for ITV and STV, the 8 x 60’ prime-time series will invite viewers into a luxury Caribbean resort filled with glamour, opulence and deception…

Hosted by the incomparable Stephen Mangan, 10 pairs of contestants will arrive at The Fortune Hotel, where they will be given an all-important briefcase. Inside one case is the ultimate jackpot of £250,000 in cash, eight are empty, and one contains the dreaded Early Checkout Card – whichever pair is left holding that case at the end of each show will see their stay brought to a dramatic, premature end. 

Every day the contestants have the chance to try to uncover who has which case through playing compelling challenges, and as the “Whogotit” mystery ramps up for the hotel guests, viewers at home will remain deliciously in-the-know throughout, witness to all of their plans and strategies playing out.

The climax of each episode is the nerve-shredding case swap in the seductive Lady Luck bar where each pair must decide whether to keep or swap their case. Have the couple with the life-changing sum of cash managed to bluff and blag their way free of suspicion? Or will their case be ruthlessly taken off them? And who will be left holding the case containing the Early Checkout Card?

Host Stephen Mangan says: "This show has it all and I can’t wait to take up my post as the devilishly polite but mischievous manager of The Fortune Hotel. But be warned, once you’ve checked in, nothing is as it seems…”

Paul Mortimer, ITV's Director of Reality Commissioning says: “I am so excited for our viewers to get to experience this reality TV event set in the glamorous but drama-filled world of The Fortune Hotel. Our hotel guests (and players) will reflect a cross-section of the audience. With an eye on the prize, alliances amongst them will be made, tested and dramatically broken as they all battle to secure the elusive top prize. Stephen is the perfect host to welcome and smoothly guide both contestants and viewers from check in to check out.” 

Peter Tierney, Commissioning Editor - Reality, ITV, says: “A stunning sun-drenched resort, a game of trickery, secrecy and deception... the twists and turns in this are going to be breathtaking. I hope viewers love being more in the know than the hotel guests themselves, as we all watch even the best laid plans unravel in the hunt for victory.”

Steph Harris, Creative Director, Tuesday’s Child, says: “Channelling the gloss and glamour of White Lotus with the skullduggery of Glass Onion, The Fortune Hotel is an iconic setting for a dramatic high stakes game of cat and mouse – where thrilling reality will keep viewers on the edge of their seat right to the very end.”

Ben Wilson, Series Editor, Tuesday’s Child, says: “When The Fortune Hotel opens for business get ready for sun, sand and secrets. This is the ultimate party game made real. I can’t wait to see pairs of guests working together to outwit and outmanoeuvre their fellow holidaymakers. Let the scheming and case swapping commence!”

Ben Wilson is Series Editor for Tuesday’s Child with Steph Harris as Executive Producer. Tuesday’s Child is part of the STV Studios group of production labels.

The Fortune Hotel will air on ITV1, ITVX and STV and STV Player in 2024.
