Phillip Schofield hits ITV tonight with brand new game show 5 Gold Rings, but how does it work?

Well here's all you need to know about the new gameshow...

5 Gold Rings: What is it?!

In this game, every pixel counts. The format sees two teams go head to head over five rounds. One team will be walking away with up to £25,000 whilst the other will leave with nothing. Who wins and who loses is decided in a unique way… using five gold rings.

It sounds simple enough: The teams will have to battle it out against the clock to answer questions by placing gold rings onto a supersized image displayed beneath their feet on a huge circular LED floor.

For example, the picture might be a map of the world and teams will attempt the question, ‘Where is the highest mountain on earth?’ by placing a gold ring on the image where they think the answer is.

However, each round will get decidedly more difficult as after every correct answer is given all of their remaining gold rings will decrease in size – making it even tougher to find and encircle the next correct answer.

Phillip Schofield said: “I love the whole concept of this show. It’s such a simple idea.

"The longer you stay in the game, the smaller the rings get. It looks amazing and anyone of any age can play. I can’t wait to get started!”

In the third show of the new series, Mandy, 51 (years old) and son Tim, 26 (years old) from Ammanford, South Wales are hoping they have what it takes to walk away with the jackpot. Mum Mandy says that she’s the ‘brains’ but is hoping rugby playing son Tim’s tactical gameplay will help them secure a place in the final.

Up against the mother and son are longtime friends Mark, 40 (years old) and James, 39 (years old) from Worthing in Sussex & Hove. The pair have been close friends since they were kids, were best men at each other’s weddings and even have tattoos of each other on their arms. If they win, Mark is hoping to treat his wife to ballroom dancing lessons, whilst Neil may invest in a new tattoo.
