Hot on the heals of “Bullsh*t The Gameshow” (which is actually better than you would expect) Netflix has announced a new British game show called “Cheat”. The show will be filmed in front of a live studio audience and will be hosted by Danny Dyer (“Eastenders”, “The Wall”) and Ellie Taylor (“Ted Lasso”, “Plebs”).
Netflix describe the original game show as ‘a ground-breaking high-stakes quiz show where contestants can literally CHEAT their way to a fortune.… as long as they don’t get caught!’ Each episode will see four brave players have their knowledge put to the ultimate test, as they fight it out over three rounds to avoid elimination and build a jackpot worth up to £50,000. But there’s one crucial twist in this brand-new quiz show… if you don’t know the answer… it pays to CHEAT!
The series will premiere in 2023.
his is a great new series and there’s no quiz show better suited for me; expect enormous wins, loads of slippery people cheating and banter with the one and only, Ellie Taylor

I’m so excited to join Cheat and the Netflix family. Cheat has all the elements I want in a quiz show; great questions, unashamed cheating and Danny Dyer calling me ‘Treacle’ at least once per episode. I can’t wait to get started!
