Each episode of the seven-part series is filmed in a different city around the UK and is presented by Stephen Mulhern.

The game sees Stephen springing up on members of the public who can offer a 1p stake to win £1,000 by answering a series of silly questions such as his age or the TV show he hosts.

The first episode airs this Saturday April 13 in Cardiff and the second next Saturday April 20 will be in Norwich.

Stephen was spotted filming in the city for two days last August, starting with The Forum and Norwich Airport and moving onto Tesco in Blue Boar Lane, Sprowston, the following day.Two women spotted taking part at the Forum were seen doing a 'let's be havin' you' Delia Smith impression before the quiz and were asked to identify custard and mustard in two pots.

The games also continued with Check It Out at Tesco and the chance for customers to win their shopping.

Speaking at the time of filming, a spokesman for Tesco Sproswston said: 'Stephen selected customers as they came in the store and they had to guess correctly whether each of the four items selected by the crew was more or less expensive than the previous item starting with a jar of olives for 75p.

'If they got them all correct they would win the contents of their shopping.
