Gordon Ramsay to host new BBC One gameshow Bank Balance

Gordon Ramsay will be stepping into his first ever role as host in a brand new game show, Bank Balance, for primetime on BBC One, devised and produced by Studio Ramsay.

Bank Balance is a high-stakes, high-pressure game show where contestants test their poise, precision, knowledge and nerve to succeed to build themselves a fortune – or see it come crashing down in an instant.

Gordon Ramsay says: “This is going to be truly epic. It is such an intense game with so much jeopardy to win big and lose even bigger, where the difference between failure and success is always in the balance. I’m so happy to be working with the fantastic team at the BBC and cannot wait to get in the studio and start stacking those gold bars!”

Kate Phillips, Controller of Entertainment Commissioning, says: “Bank Balance is a great format where contestants need to balance nerve with knowledge. And Gordon will be a formidable and unforgettable host.”

Bank Balance has been commissioned by Kate Phillips, Controller of Entertainment Commissioning, and Jo Wallace is Executive Producer for the BBC. It is devised and produced by Studio Ramsay’s Fernando De Jesus, Tom Day, Sam Smaïl and Bronson Payne and Executive Produced by Gordon Ramsay and Chief Creative Officer Lisa Edwards.

Filming will begin later this year.
