Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford host new show for ITV Daytime
ITV Daytime has commissioned a new quiz format Gift List from 12 Yard Productions, presented by husband and wife team Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford.
Each day, Eamonn and Ruth will invite three engaged couples onto the show, where they will have the opportunity to win their very own wedding list, culminating with a top prize of a dream holiday.
Gift List will see the betrothed couples have to work together across a series of quiz rounds in order to see off the opposition. The new format will run for 10 episodes this summer.
Ruth Langsford said: “We are all real life couples, us and the guests. So as you can imagine, there is more to this show than just questions!” 
Eamonn Holmes added: “We even let the contestants win the prizes they want. They chose their own Gift List, but have they got what it takes to win it?”
12 Yard’s Managing Director Andy Culpin said: "We are delighted to be working with TV's favourite 'real life' couple Eamonn and Ruth on this new quiz show. They are the perfect fit for the format."
The new series has been commissioned by ITV Director of Daytime, Helen Warner, and will be produced by ITV Studios-owned indie 12 Yard Productions. The executive producers are Andy Culpin, Michael Mannes & Matt Walton. The format was developed by Liz Gaskell and Stefan Iriarte.
