Alan Carr's 'Epic Gameshow', filmed at dock10, brings back some of Britain's best loved TV game shows and gives them a modern twist. The irrepressible comedian has already hosted updated versions of family favourites 'Bullseye' and 'Strike It Lucky' and has now revamped the '80s classic 'Child's Play'. In this guessing game for adults, Alan is joined by a cast of adorable and hilarious children and four contestants who try to work out what words are being described by the fun-sized stars of the show. With a £20,000 jackpot up for grabs, it's all to play for!
The original Child's Play was relatively short-lived, running for five seasons between 1984 and 1988 on ITV. It was hosted by newsreader and TV presenter Michael Aspel and saw two teams consisting of a celebrity paired with an ordinary contestant going head-to-head to identify words based on videotaped definitions given by primary school-age children. Each 30-minute episode was divided into four rounds, with a final "Fast Play" round where both teams had the opportunity to buzz in and interrupt the videos to guess the words. The team with the most points was named the winner before being given an exciting prize package.
