We all love a bit of Graham Norton.

And he’s been a busy bee in recent months – from his chat show, to hosting Eurovision, to a brand new comedy show for Prime Video.

Now it’s been revealed that he will add another string to his bow as he will be the host of the reboot of the iconic game show, Wheel of Fortune.

It’s been reported that ITV will be reviving the classic for British viewers.


According to MailOnline, the Irish presenter landed a six-figure deal for the ITV gig.

ITV confirmed that he will host six episodes of the show as well as two celebrity specials. The series is due to air in 2024.

In a statement Graham revealed: “I’m beyond excited to be bringing such an iconic American show to a new British audience.

“My first ever TV job was a game show on ITV so this feels like coming full circle. You might even call it a wheel!”

The synopsis for the series reads: “In this thrilling game of skill and luck, the turn of the wheel secures a cash value before they pick a letter to help them solve the puzzle.

“For every correct letter they reveal in the puzzle they win multiples of that amount. The pressure is on as they could lose everything at a spin of a wheel which contains ‘bankrupts’ and ‘lose a turn’ and the contestants’ entire winnings could be wiped out.

“In addition to cash, they can also win some impressive prizes which are added to their cash pot to help them reach the bonus round. Everything is up for grabs but only one lucky contestant will get the chance to add big money to their cash pot and see if they can take it home.”

The show will air on ITV1 and ITVX next year.
